Retired Fire Board Member Election Results


LAFPP welcomes Commissioner Kenneth Buzzell, the newly-elected Fire Department Retired Employee Member of the Board of Fire and Police Pension Commissioners! On October 5th, Commissioner Buzzell will be sworn-in at the Board meeting and fulfill his fiduciary responsibilities as a Board member.  

In September 2017, a special election was held to fill the vacancy created by former Commissioner Sam Diannitto, who retired from the Board after 42 years of unwavering service to System members. Commissioner Buzzell will serve the remaining 27 months of a 5-year term ending June 30, 2020.

Commissioner Buzzell retired from the Los Angeles Fire Department as a Fire Captain II, after 32 years of service. He served on the boards of the United Firefighters of Los Angeles City (UFLAC), Local 112; the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF); the Los Angeles Retired Fire and Police Association (LARFPA); and the National Conference on Public Employee Retirement Systems (NCPERS). 

Welcome Commissioner Buzzell and congratulations on your election!
