This week, I was honored to join Mayor Eric Garcetti and an unprecedented delegation of Los Angeles officials including 150 business leaders in Washington D.C. for the annual Access Washington D.C. symposium organized by the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and the Valley Industry and Commerce Association.
Together with my colleagues, we met with over a dozen members of congress to advocate on behalf of the Los Angeles region for transportation funding including vital resources to upgrade our roads and infrastructure systems. Additionally, the delegation met with business and congressional leaders to discuss opportunities to help small business growth in our region.
