Mayor Wade Nomura has been appointed to the California League of Cities Advancing Equity Advisory Committee. Nomura was one of three panelists last October for the California League of Cities annual conference addressing advancing equity in our cities. He was joined by Cal Cities immediate past president and Yountville mayor, John Dunbar, and Cal Cities board director and Temecula city clerk, Randi Johl.
The 25-person committee will undertake an informative and developmental process to identify a set of recommended actions and resources to support cities in their efforts to reevaluate operations and services through an equity lens, and reform areas where longstanding racial biases and inequities exist.
“This appointment comes at a very opportune time for our city, as our City Council will be considering this same direction in the near future,” said Nomura.
