LOS AL NEIGHBORLY NEWS 08.15.20
Dear District 1 Residents,

Candidate filing for Los Alamitos City Council closed on August 7th. I am proud to have served you and hope you will afford me the opportunity to continue serving as your new District 1 Councilmember.
During COVID-19, making personal contact will be limited, and I would appreciate the opportunity to meet via Zoom with groups of neighbors. If you would be interested in helping set one of these up, contact me and we'll talk with your neighbors. It is extremely important during these difficult times to connect, and I want to know from you what I can do to help you and your neighbors.

If you have comments, questions, or concerns about anything regarding the City, you can email me at deanlosal@gmail.com or call me at (562) 241-0235.

God bless you and God Bless America.
