The Los Angeles City Council recently considered the nomination of Seleta Reynolds to the head position of the Los Angeles City Transportation Department, or LADOT. Ms. Reynolds was nominated by Mayor Eric Garcetti and has previously worked with San Francisco on a livable streets project. She has built a reputation for a focus on the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.
According a report in LA's StreetsBlog, Ms. Reynolds plans on taking the city towards a "safer, more shared and more community-friendly future." The vision is one that seems to be shared by the council, who approved the candidate's nomination unanimously.
