Chair, Board of Trustees

774 Valencia Street
Los Angeles, CA 90017

Larry Brown was reelected trustee by mail balloting of NALC members in 2022, a position he’s held for seven previous terms since 1994.

With more than 20 years of experience as a national trustee to rely on, Brown continues his commitment “to serve the best interests of the letter carriers who have placed their confidence in me.”

Brown has served as president of Los Angeles, CA Branch 24 since 1989. In 1998 he began serving as chairman of the three-member NALC Board of Trustees.

Brown began his union career as a shop steward at Highland Park Station in 1973 and served in that capacity right up until his election as Branch 24 president. He also was the branch’s Mutual Benefit Association representative from 1981 to 1989.

He credits his parents for his involvement in the labor movement. “Being raised by two parents involved in civic and church activities,” Brown said, “the union was a natural extension of the leadership qualities and organizational techniques I learned at home.”

A tireless community activist, Brown is vice president of the Los Angeles Federation of Labor and chairman of the Los Angeles Labor Community Services, AFL-CIO, and he sits on the advisory committee of the Los Angeles Trade Technical College.

Brown also plays a prominent personal and leadership role in political affairs as NALC’s congressional district liaison for California Rep. Maxine Waters (D-35) and as an active member of the Los Angeles County Democratic Central Committee.

Along with safeguarding members’ interests as a trustee, Brown says he also feels a duty to “always be working toward electing government representatives who best serve the needs of our membership.”

Brown’s wife, Carolyn, also is a letter carrier and a Branch 24 member. They have three daughters and a son.
