VOLUME 13 NO. 36


Los Angeles, Calif. — John Harabedian, 
a longtime public servant, businessman, 
lawyer and community activist, today announced 
his candidacy for Supervisor of 
Los Angeles County District 5. John brings 
to the campaign wide-ranging experiences 
in public service and civic leadership – from 
serving as a Los Angeles County Deputy 
District Attorney, a state commissioner, and 
currently as the Mayor of the City of Sierra 
Madre. He pairs this firsthand experience 
with a fresh vision and new solutions for the 
County’s most pressing issues.

“As County Supervisor, my priorities will 
be solving homelessness once and for all, 
reforming our criminal justice system, and 
protecting our environment and natural 
resources so that future generations – including 
my two young sons – will be able 
to thrive,” says John. “I will fight to improve 
the quality of life for all County residents, 
but especially the most vulnerable, including 
those lacking health care coverage and 
our children in foster care. The time to solve 
these problems is now. We can’t afford to 
wait another four-year term to improve our 
County or support those in greatest need.”

John represents a new generation of leadership, 
recognizing that we need new, smarter 
and more forward-thinking strategies to 
address the County’s biggest challenges, not 
the same old promises with no results. John 
believes in eliminating the corrupting influence 
of big money from our democracy and 
listening to the people rather than special 

John currently represents Sierra Madre on 
the Clean Power Alliance and on the Los 
Angeles County Sanitation District, bodies 
which tackle County-wide needs in transportation 
and citizen services. He lives in 
Sierra Madre with his wife and two sons.

Residents warned to take 

LOS ANGELES—Following a recent 
death of a Los Angeles County resident 
potentially related to the use of e-cigarettes, 
the Los Angeles County Department 
of Public Health is issuing a warning 
to residents about the use of these 
devices as potentially harmful to proper 
lung function. To date, there have been 
12 reports of vaping-associated pulmonary 
injury (VAPI) in Los Angeles 

“Nationwide, we are learning how dangerous 
these devices may be, and the 
long-term health impacts remain unknown 
at this time,” said Dr. Muntu 
Davis, MD, MPH, Los Angeles County 
Health Officer. “As their popularity rises, 
especially among teens and young adults, 
we are compelled to warn our 10 million 
residents that the risks of using these devices, 
with or without nicotine, marijuana, 
CBD or some street concoction, may 
now include severe lung injury.”

There are nationwide reports that people 
are showing up in emergency departments 
with similar symptoms such as 
coughing, difficulty breathing, fever, and 
may have vomiting and diarrhea.

“The increasing cases of severe pulmonary 
illnesses associated with vaping 
both nationwide and locally in Los Angeles 
County are alarming and underscores 
how much we still don’t know about the 
extent of harm that vaping can cause,” 
said Dr. Steven Dubinett, Associate Vice 
Chancellor of UCLA and Chief of Pulmonary 
and Critical Care Medicine at 
the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. 
“We join Public Health, the medical 
community, and other health professionals 
in warning residents about the use of 
these devices and the need for a concerted 
effort to address this outbreak.”

“The bottom line is everyone should 
think twice about vaping until more is 
known about their impacts on the health 
of their users, and the role they play as 
a contributor to lung damage leading to 
death,” Davis added.

Public Health continues to urge healthcare 
providers to be on the alert for signs 
of severe respiratory illness among patients 
who recently used vaping products 
including e-cigarettes and report cases 
by phone to Los Angeles County Department 
of Public Health at 626-299-3504.

Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are 
battery-powered devices that heat a liquid 
substance (e-liquid or e-juice) that 
contains nicotine, flavorings, and other 
additives and deliver the nicotine and flavoring 
to the user in the form of an aerosol 
(“smoke”). For information on the 
risks associated with vaping, and how to 
quit smoking visit:
