Susana Reyes

I bring to the Board my unique experiences and skills from my many years as a civil servant and LADWP employee and as an environmental champion. I will strive to make LADWP a recognized leader for reliable services and innovative programs delivered by a diverse and talented workforce, while ensuring its place as a global force for sustainability and competitiveness. Because equity is an indispensable element of my fiduciary duties, I will create opportunities to address inequities internally and within the communities that we serve and help transform our city to one that benefits all residents, no matter the zip code.
