    Housing Relief

    Governor Gavin Newsom has announced a statewide eviction moratorium - this applies to both the City of San Fernando and the City of Los Angeles. No evictions due to COVID-19 can occur for the next two months. There are certain steps a resident must go through. Learn more about both the orders from State and the City of LA here
    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti emitió una orden que establece que ningún propietario puede desalojar a un inquilino en la Ciudad de Los Ángeles durante este período de emergencia local si el inquilino puede demostrar que no puede pagar el alquiler debido a circunstancias relacionadas  con la pandemia de COVID-19. Los inquilinos tendrán hasta seis meses después de la expiración del período de emergencia local para pagar cualquier renta atrasada. Visita para más informacion.


  • Welcome! I am honored to represent the East San Fernando Valley as your School Board Member. By working together, we can ensure that every child in Los Angeles has access to an excellent public education.

    We have the incredible privilege here in LAUSD to make dreams come true. With your support and partnership, we can become a district where:

    • 100% of our students graduate ready for college and careers;
    • Our schools welcome and embrace the diversity of our students and their families;
    • Our teachers and principals are heard, empowered, and supported so they can reach their full potential; and
    • Our work is centered around the unshakeable principle that we put the needs of kids and families above all else.

    I hope you’ll join me in this journey to provide equity and opportunity for all kids in Board District 6 and beyond.

    Thank you!
