The scale and impact of development is one of the most controversial issues in Council District 4. It is clear to me that residents have little faith in the City’s process for reviewing and approving major development and infrastructure projects.
The best way to restore public trust is to avoid even the appearance of conflict of interest. Residents want to know that projects will be judged solely on their merits and their impact on the community.
I want every resident, and every neighborhood, to trust that the review process at City Hall will treat all parties equally and fairly – but that kind of trust must be earned through deeds rather than words.
During my campaign I refused all political contributions from developers with current or upcoming projects in the City of Los Angeles. This pledge continues to apply throughout my term of service on the City Council.
Additionally, I vow to make meetings with developers who have active projects in the City made available to the public.
Please continue to check this page for updates regarding meetings my staff or I have with developers or their representative. This pledge also applies for my entire term of service on the City Council.
