      Former Los Angeles City Councilmember Art Snyder Passes

      Former Los Angeles City Councilmember Art Snyder passed away on November 7th. Snyder, who represented the 14th District from 1967 to 1985, was born in Lincoln Heights and was a lifelong Angeleno. Councilmember Huizar issued the following statement:

      "I am saddened to hear the news of the passing of former CD14 Councilmember Art Snyder," said current CD 14 Councilmember José Huizar. "Art was a colorful character and a throwback politician who marched to the beat of his own drum. Through it all, Art Snyder faithfully represented an ever-changing Council District 14 for nearly two decades and for that, we all owe him a huge debt. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, family and friends."
