Valley Alliance of Neighborhood Councils,

Dear Representatives and Friends of VANC,
We are very pleased to have three senior representatives of the LA Fire Department, led by the Valley Bureau Commander Trevor Richmond, who will present the LAFD  Strategic Plan for 2022-2025. They will be available to answer some of your questions about fire protection and public safety.
We have a number of hot topics to discuss including a request to have the Valley neighborhood councils write to the local City Councilmembers urging them to retain online public comment opportunities.
For those of you expecting LAUSD Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, he will be our guest speaker on July 14.
I look forward to seeing you this Thursday
