Last Friday many of you joined us for a Public Hearing on Cityhood for East LA, hosted by State Senator Gloria Romero. It was a great event where the authors of the Initial Fiscal Analysis explained their findings, community members asked questions about Cityhood, and people expressed support and eagerness to get involved. ELARA would like to extend its appreciation to Congresswoman Grace Napolitano, State Senator Gloria Romero, State Senator Dean Florez, and all the attendees and volunteers for helping spread the word about Cityhood within our community.

You can listen to an audio transcript of the hearing using the player below.
