Omar staffed and advised Councilmember Bonin in his role on the Innovation, Grants, Technology, Commerce and Trade Committee, which oversaw actions taken by the Los Angeles World Airport’s Board of Airport Commissioners and made recommendations to the Los Angeles City Council. Omar also helped craft and adopt a landmark settlement agreement between the City of Los Angeles and the Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion, allowing the City to move forward with critical multi-billion-dollar infrastructure projects at LAX.
