LOS ANGELES — Mayor Karen Bass today issued the following statement following the announcement of a deal between LAUSD and SEIU Local 99:
"I want to thank SEIU Local 99 Executive Director Max Arias and Superintendent Alberto Carvalho for working together with me to put our families first.
"We must continue working together to address our city's high cost of living, to grow opportunity and to support more funding for LA’s public schools, which are the most powerful determinant of our city’s future.
"As Mayor, I have no formal authority over our schools. But that will never stop me when it comes to fighting for our children and their families."
