I have been looking forward to this day since I was sworn in as Los Angeles County Supervisor in December of 2014. This new office will continue the work we have been doing for the families within the First District from providing health services and homelessness advocacy to strengthening employment and economic development opportunities.
I am committed to continuing the fight for immigrant families in LA County, so that they can stay together and live productive lives without fear. This is an unfortunate reminder that we still live in a time of injustice which goes against the principles on which this country was founded.
Everybody loves a park. Parks are great for the environment, great for communities and great for public health. Trees absorb ozone, provide cooling shade and reduce water run-off. Parks are also important gauges of the overall quality of life in our neighborhoods.
On June 27, 2016, the Unified Command agencies opened a Customer Information Center in Maywood so that residents and businesses impacted by the Fruitland Magnesium Fire can get the information they need from the many agencies that are responding to this complex incident.
I was greatly disturbed to hear the news of the mass shooting in Orlando at the Pulse nightclub. The violent attack claimed 50 lives and wounded over 50 others, many of who were hospitalized because of their injuries.
