As a Sacramento resident, I truly love that our city is made up of unique and established neighborhoods. I look forward to Measure L passing to give our neighborhoods the representation that we need. By placing neighborhood advisory committees into the city's Charter, we elevate the place of neighborhoods in the governance of our city.

Measure L will enable neighborhoods to have direct input into the governance of our community. By combining neighborhood committees with the requirement that some city council meetings be held outside of City Hall, we will be making sure that neighborhoods not only have a place at the civic table, but are a primary focus of the city.

I, for one, support Measure L because I support our neighborhoods.
