When I took office in 2013, I made a promise to uplift every community in the great 13th Council District, as well as provide a safe, enjoyable visitor experience to some of the most iconic neighborhoods in all of Los Angeles.
During the past year alone, we dedicated dozens of newly-built affordable housing units, improved walkability in our communities by enhancing pedestrian safety, and planted more than 1000 trees across the district. This is in addition to some of my citywide policy initiatives, such as replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day, strengthening our local economy through my ‘Open for Business’ reform, and developing measures to protect the character of our residential neighborhoods. For a recap of highlights this past year, neighborhood by neighborhood, please visit the links below.
Of course, we can always do more to promote the health and well-being of our families, create new (and preserve existing) affordable housing to allow more options for all Angelenos, and improve the look and feel of every street in the 13th District. I will always lead the way to improve your quality of life.
It is an honor and a privilege to be your representative, and my team and I look forward to working for you --together-- in the year ahead.
Happy New Year!
