Electrical Vehicle Chargers at Lake Balboa Golfcourse

Aug 15, 2017

Recently a stakeholder reached out to my office concerned that one of the two electoral vehicle chargers located at the Lake Balboa Golf Course had stopped working.  This presented issues when more than one vehicle showed up to charge at the same time.  I directed my staff to work through the red-tape and identify funding and resources to get the location fixed.  I’m pleased to report that we were able to identify the funding, and work with the folks at LADWP in getting the station repaired in just a few weeks.  This will greatly improve accessibility for electrical vehicle use in our district.  I would encourage anyone who has an issue that needs City assistance to contact my office and we’ll do whatever we can to help.

Ready for Women: Class of 2017

Aug 15, 2017

Every year that I’ve been on the Los Angeles City Council, I’ve had a summer program called the, “Ready for Women Fellowship.”  This program brings together several woman for a paid summer fellowship that gives an immersive experience inside City Hall.  I believe that we must build a pipeline for future women leaders, and it’s my responsibility as a woman holding elective office to help build this pipeline. While working in this fellowship, these young women join high level meetings, develop and execute short-term projects, and have access to see the inner workings of City Hall.  We also hold weekly seminars for the participants to hear and ask questions of key players that can help shape their careers. This year’s fellows join us from varied backgrounds. Angelina Finau is a recent graduate from CSUN with a BA in Political Science.  She was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley.  Audrey Nicole Soriano is a recent graduate with a BA in Healthcare Policy from Mount Saint Mary’s University.  She’s previously interned with the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles.  Elizabeth Garcia is a junior at UCLA, majoring in Political Science.  She has previously interned in the Mayor’s office, and is a volunteer with Reading Partners as a tutor for under-resourced students in Downtown Los Angeles.
