A Message From Your City Council

During these turbulent and stressful times, we have witnessed our country’s ongoing struggles with social injustice and racial inequality, most recently exemplified in the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. And we have seen the reactions of many across the United States; some peaceful and some violent, further reflecting the inequities still present in our society.

But we have also seen some of the best examples of friendship and unity: impassioned, peaceful demonstrations, donations to non-profit organizations working for solutions, support for black-owned businesses and much more. In Westlake Village, we pride ourselves on valuing all voices and welcoming diversity. But we also know there is still work to be done.

Now is the time to listen and learn from others. We must have conversations about race and inequality, and we will look to have programming that can engage our community and its residents on these issues. We will continue to work closely with our Sheriff’s Department to be certain that our law enforcement officers perform their highly important duties with our residents’ health and safety at the forefront of their minds, and that they too have a voice in our city and feel our support.

We are proud to live in and represent a city that strives to be inclusive and shows respect for all. As partners, our residents, the City, and the public agencies that serve us can continue to work together to promote and preserve our peaceful, safe community for all who live and work here. We welcome your thoughts and ideas on how our community can move forward in a positive direction.

Together we are better.
