Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
Valley VOTE is pleased to announce that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be speaking at our meeting Monday night May 12, 2008. His last visit was back in February of 2005 when he was a candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles. He made a number of commitments at that meeting on his plans for the Valley. He stated, "For too long, the San Fernando Valley has been treated as the neglected stepchild of Los Angeles. For me, the message is very simple: 'Slow down, take notice, share with us and include us in the City of Angels...' - As mayor, that is just what I will do"
We thank the Mayor for taking time out from his very hectic schedule to be with us and look forward to his remarks.
Refreshments will be provided with the compliments of Galpin Motors.
We have to set up the room and arrange for refreshments. We have limited space so it would be very helpful if you would let us know ASAP if you will be attending. Thanks.
You can send an Email to:
Joe Vitti at email@example.com or
Richard Leyner at firstname.lastname@example.org or
After the Mayor speaks, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. We are asking our guests to write their questions on index cards that Valley VOTE members will provide. We will sort these cards at the meeting and select the most requested questions for the Mayor to respond to.
One final note of thanks:
We are very fortunate that the management at Galpin has permitted Valley VOTE to conduct their monthly meetings in the Community Room for over 10 years. We would like to thank the entire Galpin organization for their outstanding hospitality over the last decade.
