Whereas, a duly elected member of the Simi Valley City Council, Ruth Luevanos is facing an unjustified and politically, racially and gender based censure and recall effort; and
Whereas, having a city council that is representative of the entire city of Simi Valley is both good for the residents of that city and encourages citizen engagement in the legislative districts that the city of Santa Clarita shares with Simi Valley; and
Whereas, the video that was made by Council Member Luevanos was an appropriate communication to underrepresented residents of Simi Valley and beyond informing them of their constitutional rights as it pertains to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Operations;
Therefore Be it Resolved, The Democratic Alliance for Action will support Simi Valley City Council Member Ruth Luevanos against any attempt at censure or recall; and
Be it Further Resolved, The Democratic Alliance for Action will send this resolution to the Democratic Party of The San Fernando Valley, The Los Angeles County Democratic Party, Congresswoman Katie Hill, Assemblywoman Christy Smith, and State Senator Henry Stern.
