So, who is our new City Attorney?

What priorities does our new top attorney have?

How did Dennis Herrera and David Chiu coordinate to ensure a seemless transition?

What advice has Dennis Herrera given to David Chiu?

Where is Dennis Herrera going?

Both Dennis Herrera and David Chiu will be sitting down at Manny's to discuss everything about their new roles and what they are hoping to accomplish.

Join us at Manny’s as part of our Local Leaders Series where we will bring in prominent government officials to discuss their roles, their priorities, and what projects they're currently working on.
