My website is a great place to learn more about what’s going on in our communities and City Hall. More importantly, it’s a place where you can let me know about the issues that concern you and your family most. 

If there is any way I may be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,
DAVID E. RYU
Councilmember
