It is no secret that many cities statewide tend to encounter a variety of problems. Things like budgetary issues and infrastructure maintenance are just a few of the issues that must be dealt with on a continuous basis. Our city is no different. Therefore, it is important that we make City of La Verne a top destination for businesses and families alike. By attracting these people, we can help rebuild our tax base. With more money coming in we can expand our services even more and make our great city a powerful magnet for revitalization. When elected to La Verne City Council, I intend to help formulate positive policies to get our city back on track. Please help me accomplish this goal and vote for me, Keny Chang for La Verne City Council on March 2020.

Keny Chang Announces Candidacy for La Verne City Council


La Verne, CA – Today, local resident Keny Chang officially announced his candidacy for La Verne City Council.  Mr. Chang stated he looked forward to, “An honest, positive campaign solely focused on the issues facing our City.”

Keny is a life-long Southern California resident, attended Boston University, and has run a few
professional services businesses in the area. He will focus a more transparent, effective city government that serves all citizens without excessive spending, significant bickering or unnecessarily high (legal) liability. He will also emphasize ensuring that the different City departments, including though not limited to the Fire Department, Police Department and City Council work in a more cohesive and respectful manner.


Mr. Chang stated that, “The citizens of La Verne deserve a local government they can be proud of. While its clear the City has done a lot of admirable things, of late, we've experienced situations that do not portray La Verne in its best light.”


“I chose to run for City Council because I have the professional background to go beyond pointing out a problem, though to help implement innovative solutions (i.e. regarding financial reporting, overhead reduction, and marketing the City). I also believe best practices should always be pursued. We do not need to make the same mistakes we have before or that other cities have,” Chang said.


“Additionally, while I am quite certain about some of the needed changes in town, I intend to listen to you, the citizen in 1:1 and small group settings, so that I can hear about your recent experiences interacting with the City as well as what you believe is working and what can be improved upon. We all have a stake in La Verne's fiscal health, reputation, and ability to differentiate itself from neighboring cities, as well as those across the State and Nation.”

City of La Verne - Settlement Reached with Firefighters’ Association on Both State and Federal Lawsuits

LA VERNE, CA (April 11, 2019) – The City of La Verne today announced that it has entered into a settlement agreement with members of the La Verne Firefighters’ Association, resolving all state and federal lawsuits brought by the Association and its members.

The decision to end these disruptive and adversarial matters involved united decisions by the City’s municipal self-insurance carrier, the California Joint Powers Authority, as to the monetary aspects and the City as to the non-monetary items. The monetary portion of the settlement is valued at $5.5 million. The non-monetary portion of the settlement involves various operational and managerial terms.

The settlement will serve to reestablish and strengthen the City’s relationship with its firefighters.

Energy Efficient Streetlight Upgrade Project Commences In La Verne

The City of La Verne recently launched a citywide streetlight conversion to light emitting diode (LED) project, which will upgrade approximately 2,000 streetlights recently acquired from Southern California Edison (SCE), to energy efficient LED fixtures.

The project was awarded to Tanko Lighting of San Francisco, CA and commenced in March 2017, with an initial audit phase that identified the precise locations and characteristics of the City's existing streetlights. Actual retrofit of the streetlights to LED technology is expected to begin in March 2019 and be completed in April 2019.

Not only will the project reduce the City's energy use resulting in decreased energy cost, but it will also improve the color and quality of light throughout the City.
