This week, I gave a special thanks to an incredible public servant who has given an immeasurable amount of time and service to the 12th Council District and the City of Los Angeles. Kerry McCorkle is the Intergovernmental Affairs Representative for the LADWP and has proven essential in our efforts to serve constituents as it relates to our utility.
Whenever there is has been a billing error or a family facing financial hardship that is unable to make prompt payment on their utility bill, Kerry has been an all-star providing thorough, speedy customer service. He knows the ins-and-outs of this utility like few people do and for years has helped my staff work through any issue that may arise.
Not only has he been an extraordinary public servant to Los Angeles for nearly 30 years, he is also a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. And while folks like Kerry don't often get the attention they deserve, it is my pleasure to work with him regularly and to highlight him as an example of excellence in Los Angeles public service.
