As your Councilmember, I believe that government must be about empowering people. Government must be interactive with leaders actively listening and seeking feedback from the community. Just as the City of Los Angeles—a city that is larger than 21 states—relies on numerous commissions of appointees to help it govern, I have created and rely on my own Community Action Teams, BobCATs for short.
Each Community Action Team has a specific issue focus, including:
- Business and Economic Development
- Neighborhood Beautification
- Domestic Violence
- Emergency Preparedness
Already I have dozens of community leaders actively engaged in these community action teams. For more information on our Community Action Teams, email Jenny.M.Portillo@Lacity.org to learn more.
