News From the 5th District

 Twitter


Our Community Development Commission does a lot of a incredible, hands-on work across L.A. County to build great programs for youth, seniors, and those in need of community facilities and affordable housing.

Nothing would brighten up springtime like a new pet! Bring one of these cuties into your home or adopt one of the hundreds of other pets from your local @LACoAnimalCare animal care center.

The poppies are blooming in the Antelope Valley—and they're as stunning as ever! When visiting the Poppy Reserve, please tread lightly and stick to designated paths so the blooms don't get trampled, and pull your car over to the side of the road so we don't cause traffic.

It was an honor to attend the Cardinal’s Awards Dinner. Every year, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles celebrates dedicated individuals who give back to their community. The event is particularly special because the funds raised are used to support youth in local schools.

Our Community Development Commission does a lot of a incredible, hands-on work across L.A. County to build great programs for youth, seniors, and those in need of community facilities and affordable housing. For three decades, Scott Stevenson, the director of the Community and Economic Development Division, has been our resident expert on these issues. We will miss him around the county, but wish him well on his retirement and are glad to still have him as a Fifth District resident in Arcadia!

Protecting and caring for our children has to be at the top of our priorities. We will not stand by while our youth are robbed of their childhoods, safety, and peace of mind.
Enough is enough, and with the help of our Los Angeles County Probation Department, we will continue our efforts to make sure no child is subjected to the trauma and injustice of commercial sexual exploitation.
