Glendora Mayor Pro Tem Joe Santoro represented the city as the League of California Cities met to weigh in on current policies affecting cities across the state.
The policy meetings began Jan. 17 and will continue with a series of meetings in April in Pasadena and the league’s annual conference in June.
Santoro serves on the Public Safety Policy Committee and is a member of the League’s Sub Committee on Realignment, a topic in which the city has been very vocal in its opposition.
“Glendora benefits from the League’s policy committees because we are able to weigh in on issues that will affect our budgets and shape future policies. Without these meetings our influence on the State’s decisions would be greatly diminished,” said Santoro.
The League discusses policies in eight committees, including Administrative Services, Community Services, Employee Relations, Environmental Quality, Housing, Community and Economic Development, Public Safety, Revenue and Taxation, and Transportation, Communications, and Public Works.
