News From the 5th District

 Twitter


Mark Bozigian served @cityoflancaster productively and passionately as city manager, where his efforts helped the city reduce crime, revitalize downtown, and work toward becoming the world’s first “net zero” city. He's proof that people from our communities serve them best!

Los Angeles County is successful because of the extraordinary leaders who work in our departments. After 35 years of service, most recently as the chief deputy director of the Department of Public Works, Gary Hildebrand is headed into a well-deserved retirement.

This is the last pet presentation of 2018! Will you make it your New Year's resolution to welcome Honey or Jamaica into your family? You can adopt a pet of your own at one of our @LACoAnimalCare animal care centers.

Mental Evaluation Teams pair a mental health clinician with a sheriff's deputy to better serve those on the street suffering from a mental illness when 9-1-1 is called. Through their efforts, we've reduced confrontations and provided people with clinical assessments and services.

This week, we saw what it means for people to be meaningfully involved in their communities, including the Rose Court, the Armenian American Museum, the Alternate Public Defender, and more. Read more in our most recent edition of Keeping up with Kathryn: https://t.co/CIjnULwwbb
