Westside Urban Forum: Addressing the Big Issues

Los Angeles faces many critical issues that transcend city boundaries.
Yet it can be a challenge to act regionally when politics is acted out
on a local or sub-regional stage. We have recently witnessed this drama
in efforts to bring a transportation sales tax to the voters in
November. Find out from some of those most closely involved how this
drama played out and what we can learn as we work to address
transportation, air quality, water, growth and our many other regional
challenges.

Panelists:
Hon. Mike Feuer, California State Assembly, 42nd District
Hon. Bonnie Lowenthal, Long Beach City Council & former member of Metro Board of Directors
Denny Zane, Executive Director of Move LA & former Mayor, City of Santa Monica

Moderator:
Professor Genevieve Giuliano, USC & Director METRANS Transportation Center
