League of California Cities' Latino Caucus and USC to Unveil New Initiative for Latino Elected Officials

June 12, 2014
Today the League of California Cities’ Latino Caucus and the University of Southern California Sol Price School of Public Policy (USC Price) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing ceremony to inaugurate a public policy and administration forum for Latino local leaders.
 
Event Details
 
Thursday, June 12, at 3 p.m.
USC Campus
650 Childs Way, Ralph Lewis Goldy Hall 308
Los Angeles
 
As part of its long-term strategic plan, the Latino Caucus is entering this partnership with USC Price to create workshops for newly elected Latinos who are serving at the local level of government. The “boot camps” will immerse these officials in the most pressing, important issues that local governments face today.  Once they have completed the course, participants will have gained the education needed as a council member or mayor to make vital policy decisions benefiting their constituents.
 
Paramount Mayor and League of California Cities’ Latino Caucus President Diane J. Martinez, Carson Council Member Karen Avilla, Long Beach Council Member-Elect Roberto Uranga, Bonnie Garcia with Garcia, Hernández, Sawhney & Bermudez LLP and USC faculty participated in the MOU signing.
