Paul Koretz

LA City Councilman Paul Koretz took a stand in 2013 for the health of Los Angeles and its natural resources and initiated a piece of legislation for a city-wide ban on GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

A courageous step toward taking LA out of the pocket of Monsanto.

Here is an abbreviated list of some of the other tremendous actions Koretz has taken on behalf of LA:

 – fighting for honesty and transparency from the LADWP, including by establishing a ratepayer advocate to protect against unwarranted rate hikes;

 – ending various abusive city policies such as those involving apron parking and red light cameras;

– introducing landmark animal welfare initiatives such as the banning of cat declawing and puppy mills;

Paul has also gained a national reputation as an environmental leader. He was the first Southern California Director of the California League of Conservation Voters, and served as Administrative Director of the Ecology Center of SouthernCalifornia.
