MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA APPOINTS CINDY MISCIKOWSKI TO HARBOR COMMISSION

LOS ANGELES – Mayor Villaraigosa today appointed Cindy Miscikowski to
the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners.

“Cindy brings passion and dedication to her work for the people of
Los Angeles,†Mayor Villaraigosa said. “Her experience will add
great value to our team at the Harbor as we continue the work of growing
and greening our Port, implementing the Clean Truck Program and the
wider goals of the Clean Air Action Plan, and ensuring that our Harbor
communities are protected and economically viable for generations to
come.â€

Miscikowski, a former Los Angeles City Councilmember, represented the
11th District from 1997 to 2005. On the Council, she served as
chairwoman of the Public Safety Committee for five years, where she
moved to streamline the recruitment and hiring of police officers,
implement the reforms called for in the consent decree between the LAPD
and the federal government, and led the five-year program to implement
full paramedic resources at all of our fire stations.

As vice-chair of the Budget and Finance Committee, Miscikowski oversaw
the City’s $4 billion annual budget as well as the voter-approved bond
financed projects which built new fire stations, police stations,
libraries and recreation projects throughout the City.

Miscikowski previously served as staff to Councilmember Marvin Braude
for 22 years – 18 as Chief Deputy. From 1994 to 1996, Miscikowski served
as Executive Director of the new Skirball Museum and Cultural Center in
Brentwood. She is also widely recognized for her crucial role in the
preservation of thousands of acres of open space in the Santa Monica
Mountains for park use by future generations.

As a staunch advocate of women’s issues, Miscikowski is a member of
the Women’s Political Committee and the National Organization for
Women’s Legal Defense and Education Funds. Miscikowski holds a
bachelor’s degree in political science from UCLA currently lives in
Brentwood.
