City of Los Angeles' Council District 6
Serving Lake Balboa, Van Nuys, Arleta, Panorama City and Sun Valley
This is a website I've decided to construct at the behest of a certain Mr. Long, cảm ơn ngài.
It is my belief that our District 6 (because it's yours too) is ready to begin a new story. We suffer from the problem of having a reactive, not proactive government. Initiative, flexibility and innovation are as important to running a government service as they are a business.
City services are outmoded, inefficient, they run substandard hardware and irrelevant processes for the modern era. This is especially important considering the size and scope of the City of Los Angeles. Please view the Strategy and Outreach pages for more information. Continue below for my background information.
I'm 38 years old, my wife and I have an infant son who relishes in making our lives as busy as possible. I've worked for the Office of the Assessor for almost eight years. I've reviewed thousands of properties in the San Fernando Valley during that time. I've met and conversed with countless homeowners in various settings. I was born and raised in Council District 6, where I currently live, and I have always had the desire for understanding the underlying reasons which underpin the problem at hand.
That desire has led me to believe that there are specific strategies which we can implement for the benefit of District 6 and the municipality of Los Angeles as a whole. These strategies will lead to institutional changes that satisfy our desire for reasonable service in a timely manner and in a cost-effective, common-sense way. See below for my bona fides.

Foreign languages: I was once good at Spanish and Portuguese. I knew French once upon a time. I find Japanese easier to learn than Vietnamese though I'm equally awful at both; I haven't learned much due to life getting busier.
Traveling: Spain, France, Netherlands, Italy, Israel, Japan, China, Vietnam, Mexico, Peru, Chile, and Brazil. Hiatus due to COVID. The last country I visited was Vietnam!
Gardening: I'm attempting to root cuttings, unsuccessful thus far. Growing leafy vegetables, squash and herbs.
