Biography

American Democratic politician, who was the longest-serving Los Angeles City Council member in the history of the city — thirty-five years, from 1966 until his death in 2001 — and the president of the council for fourteen of them. He had been an all-American football player at the University of Southern California.

Ferraro was an insurance broker with the John Ferraro Company, beginning in 1951, and he invested shrewdly in stocks and real estate that made him a millionaire.

On 16 November 2000, in honor of his more than five decades of public service, the City of Los Angeles renamed the landmark Department of Water and Power's General Office Building to the John Ferraro Building.

Ferraro married twice. He was diagnosed with cancer of the spleen in August 1999 and underwent chemotherapy. He died at the age of 76 in Santa Monica on 17 April 2001.
