There’s an election happening for L.A. County employees, and this one is extremely important. 

Nicole Mi is a Programs and Operations Manager in Public Works, a CAPE member, and our CAPE-endorsed candidate for the LACERA Board of Investments.

Now more than ever it’s critical that we elect LACERA board members with the knowledge, passion, and commitment to help guarantee and secure our retirement. Nicole Mi will be a strong advocate for CAPE members, and is also endorsed by SEIU 721 and LACERA BOI Trustee Herman Santos.

Message from Our 2023 CAPE Election Committee

Our 2023 CAPE Board of Directors election has come to an early close. 

After careful consideration and consultation with our attorneys, our CAPE Election Committee is pleased to report that all candidates, having passed the necessary requirements for eligibility, are therefore duly elected without a contest because only five candidates ran for five vacant seats.

Our quarterly newsletters are a great way to stay informed and keep track of all that we’ve accomplished as a union. This week, we’re excited to officially release the e-version of the newsletter below, as well as mail a printed copy to all CAPE members.
The election for the CAPE Board of Directors is approaching soon. This year, the two-year terms of five (5) Board Directors must be filled. A mail ballot election will be held throughout the month of August.
