Speaker Rendon gets update on UCCE in his district
Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon met with UCCE Los Angeles director Keith Nathaniel and communicator Dohee Kim on March 13. Rendon represents the 63rd Assembly District in Southern California, which includes nine cities southeast of Los Angeles.
Armed with UC Cooperative Extension's annual report for Los Angeles County as well as spreadsheet data, maps and photos depicting program activities in his district, Nathaniel and Kim described the different kinds of programs that are available to Rendon's constituents, providing concrete examples.
They also talked about UC ANR's presence in the state of California. This information allowed Speaker Rendon to consider possible collaborations with UC Cooperative Extension to better serve and represent his communities.
“It was a wonderful and productive meeting at his district office in Lakewood,” Kim said. “We are pleased to report that Speaker Rendon was familiar with UC ANR and UC Cooperative Extension before the meeting.”
