Council President Emeritus & Honorary Mayor of Van Nuys George Christopher Thomas has officially launched a think tank dedicated to civic engagement.
“Focused on getting things done in government, the “Civic Ambassadors” are the brain children of a new generation of action minded individuals with an ongoing duty to the community. We recognize the existence of red tape and bureaucracy, and plan on using our decades of experience to cut through it. In the end, there is no need for partisanship or personal political fights when we are all working on the same common goal, which is to make the American Dream available for all people,” said Thomas.
