LaBonge died at the age of 67, CBSLA learned late Thursday night. Cause of death is unconfirmed.
LaBonge represented the Fourth District of Los Angeles from 2001 to 2015. The neighborhood includes Koreatown, Fairfax, Hollywood and Los Feliz.
During his tenure on the city council, he helped with the expansion of Griffith Park, oversaw the restoration and expansion of the Griffith Observatory, and helped found the Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Hollywood.
Tom LaBonge and I have been working together as colleagues and members of the neighborhood council for over ten years. The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, tweeted a statement late Thursday night to Sunday. We have often said that there is no dividing line between us, our work and our neighborhoods as long as we have a common boundary. From the Hollywood revival to the preservation of Lake Silver, I have never had a best friend or partner. No one knew the Angeleno’s better, no one woke up our town, no one was a bigger cheerleader for our town than Tom.
My heart goes out to the family of Tom LaBonge, who tweeted LAPD Chief of Police Michelle Moore on Friday morning. He was not only an elected representative, but also an ambassador of good will, a civil servant, a historian of his City of Angels and an icon. The men and women of the LAPD really came and went. Ruhe in Frieden.

LaBonge was also a major contributor to the preparation of the next largest areas of land, long before the seismic work on strengthening the city’s buildings and infrastructure began.
