Paul Krekorian – Council President, Los Angeles City Council, District #2
Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, Paul Krekorian has spent more than a decade in public service. Since 2010, he has served on the Los Angeles City Council where his leadership as chairman of the Budget and Finance Committee helped guide the city through the Great Recession and toward greater economic promise.
Paul is also vice chair of the Economic Development and Jobs Committee and Board of Referred Powers Committee, and sits on the Housing Committee; Energy, Climate Change, Environmental Justice and River Committee and Ad Hoc Committee on the 2028 Olympics and Paralympic Games.
He also serves on the board of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), Metrolink and the San Fernando Valley Council of Governments, a coalition of leaders advocating for the Valley’s two million residents.
Paul graduated from Reseda’s Cleveland High School before earning his B.A. in political science from the University of Southern California and a law degree from UC Berkeley. Upon graduating, he spent two decades practicing business, entertainment, and property litigation, while also devoting his time to reducing domestic and gang violence.
In 2006, after three years on the Burbank Board of Education, Paul won election to the California State Assembly, representing the 43rd District. In Sacramento, Paul worked to increase government accountability and transparency as co-chair of the Legislative Ethics Committee. He also worked on landmark legislation to improve the environment, and authored the state’s first successful film and television production tax incentive, which stemmed the tide of runaway production and secured thousands of California jobs.
He lives in the San Fernando Valley with his wife, Tamar, and children.
