Digging into Mayor Bass’ State of the City Address – Goals, Challenges and Accomplishments
Thursday, April 27th, 2023
Helms Design Center
8745 Washington Boulevard, Culver City
7:45 am – 9:30 am PST
Panel from 8:30 am – 9:30 am
Doors open at 7:45 for registration, breakfast and networking.
The City of Los Angeles is emerging from a global pandemic into a ‘recovery’ period, and many Angelenos have high hopes following the election of Mayor Karen Bass, whose tenure has also been accompanied by the dramatic recomposition of the City Council. But cautious optimism is tempered by an unstable economic environment, a crisis in housing and services for housing insecure Angelenos, aging transportation and utility infrastructure, and widespread staff vacancies. How can the region’s largest city meet these challenges and ensure an equitable economic recovery?
The State of the City mayoral address will occur in mid-April, closely followed by the proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Please join us to hear from invited experts on the issues facing the City of Los Angeles in 2023, and what initiatives could – or should – be in play to build an inclusive, sustainable, and economically sound future for all Angelenos.
