COUNCILMEMBER NITHYA RAMAN ANNOUNCES FIELD TEAM
LOS ANGELES-- Los Angeles City Councilmember Nithya Raman has announced the names of her Field Team, which will serve the residents of District 4.
“We’ve taken our time in hiring Field staff who are enterprising, enthusiastic, and dedicated to the communities they’ll serve,” Councilmember Raman said. “Most importantly, each of them truly embodies the values of communication, transparency, and proactive engagement with each and every constituent -- renter and homeowner, old and young, housed and unhoused -- that our office holds dear.”
“Each member of our team possesses the kindness and commitment necessary to serve CD4 residents and bring city government closer to you. Many of them have already gotten to work helping to do so over the past few weeks. I’m beyond excited to have them on the team, and to introduce them to you today.”
