Alexander HafiziDear Community Members,

Happy October. Our September events were so much fun. We had a really great Chat & Chill with guest speaker Syian Wignal of Real Way Foundation. Real Way Foundation’s mission is to help those afflicted with personal and financial hardship to regain control of their lives by assisting them in re-entering the workforce and taking steps forward to support themselves.

To learn more go to https://realwayfoundation.org/.

It was so hot outside that we decided to move donuts in the park to Starbucks in September. This event was designed for the people that can’t make a weekday event like our chat & chills but still want to mix and mingle with us. We are doing something a little different in October too.

On Sept. 22, we had our first Civic Engagement event with Justin Charles. He hosted a Meet the Candidates for the William S. Hart Union School District candidates. It was a great success.

Our Social in September was Carlos Cabana Potluck/Pool Party. These socials are always a blast and we all get to know each other so much more. Don’t miss out on the next one.

Don’t miss out on all the fun events we have planned for October.

Four years ago, against all odds, I became the 33rd Sheriff of Los Angeles County. And as Sheriff, I promised that I would Reform, Rebuild and Restore the greatest and largest Sheriff’s Department in the nation. Four years later, I am proud to say that with the support of the sworn and professional staff, together we were able to meet challenges head on, and deliver on that promise.
