Darrell Park literally wrote the book on solving some of the world’s toughest problems. He is the author of Better Than We Found It: Simple Solutions to Some of the World's Toughest Problems.
Darrell wrote this book using the insights he gained as a public servant, environmental entrepreneur and an educator. Darrell served two Presidents in the White House Office of Management and Budget where he played a role in the historic balancing of the federal budget four times. Since moving to Los Angeles County over a decade ago, he has divided his time between helping clean energy start-up companies (he has received patents in the areas of renewable energy and energy efficiency), teaching, and writing.
He is a graduate of Allegheny College, Georgetown University's Graduate Public Policy Program and Stanford University's Graduate School of Business. He and his wife are the proud parents of a young son.
I believe elected officials have a responsibility to make our community better and to solve problems.
When a public servant fails to meet this basic standard, it’s time to elect a new leader.
That’s why I am running for Los Angeles County board of Supervisors.
On our current Supervisor's watch:
Homelessness has risen in LA County by over 25% and last year the number of chronically homeless families in our District increased by a staggering 1,550%
Los Angeles County received a failing grade in air quality from the American Lung Association
LA County taxpayers will pay $7 million to the family of a man wrongfully killed by a “secret society” of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies
The current Supervisor stated, “America needs President Donald Trump’s approach” and on Trump's inhuman treatment of immigrants she said, “I’m hoping tough love does it because obviously playing nice in the sandbox has done nothing”.
LA County residents deserve better. LET’S FIX IT!
