Assemblymember Mike Gipson Secures $6.7 Million for the National Museum of the Surface Navy

Taking a break from our usual fare to bring you some incredible news: Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson, 64th District stopped by this morning to officially deliver a check for $6.7 million to the National Museum Of The Surface Navy at Battleship IOWA to build the Freedom of the Seas Park Pavilion. 

Here is the check presentation ceremony in its entirety. It was a great event hosted by Battleship IOWA board of trustees chairman Bruce DD Mac Rae and featuring speeches from Senator Steven Bradford, San Pedro Chamber of Commerce CEO Elise Swanson, Port of Los Angeles Senior Communications Director Arley Baker, and LAUSD board member Tanya Franklin-Ortiz.

Thanks to everyone who was there and to all who support projects like this one that will benefit our community for years to come!
