Veterans affairs are issues we care about very much in Long Beach. Our city is home to a great number of veterans and a former Navy base. Saturday, November 8th marked the 18th annual Veterans Day Parade in the City of Long Beach, something I am proud to say we host. Then, at the Festival that follows, we put in the good work of making services available for veterans and their families in one convenient location.
Then, on Tuesday the 11th, City Council was held at the Houghton Park Community Center. At that session I had the opportunity to formally propose a Veterans Affairs commission for the City.
These are just some of the ways that we work to show our gratitude to our veterans.
Be on the lookout for more highlights from the Council meeting in next week's newsletter.
