Englander Reelected Council President Pro Tempore
Posted by Councilmember Englander on July 03, 2015 at 12:00 PM
On July 1, I was honored to be unanimously re-elected by my fellow Councilmembers to serve another term as President Pro-Tempore of the Los Angeles City Council. In addition, we welcomed two new members to the Los Angeles City Council, Councilmembers Marqueece Harris-Dawson and David Ryu.
This is an exciting time of change in the City of Los Angeles. The past two years this Council has made significant strides in every aspect of governance but we still have much to do.
Over the next few years, we must continue to create a more responsive City Hall, fund core City services first – police, fire, streets, sidewalks, graffiti removal, parks and planning, concentrate our efforts on increasing the available affordable housing stock in the region, and make it easier for businesses to create jobs and grow our economy.
As we embark on this journey, I remain as committed to our community as I was on day one. I have enjoyed hearing your ideas and suggestions for improving and maintaining our neighborhoods and I hope you will continue to reach out.
-Mitchell Englander, Councilmember Twelfth District
