Valley Values and New Visionary Leadership
JOIN THE CAMPAIGN!
Hello everyone, my name is CR Cochrane and I was born in the San Fernando Valley. I went away to college in Washington D.C and later returned to live and work in the valley as a social worker for nearly 20 years. I continued as a public servant where I was elected as a Budget Advocate for Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti's Office through the Neighborhood Council system. I also served as President and Parliamentarian of the Reseda Neighborhood Council. During my tenure in the Neighborhood Council system, I promoted initiatives helping the homeless and brought services to the San Fernando Valley, including free tax preparation in partnership with AARP. Additionally, I supported environmental advocacy in alliance with the Sierra Club San Fernando Valley chapter, advocated for equality by partnering with the NAACP of the San Fernando Valley, and continued to promote business development and affordable housing projects.
Further, through the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office, Neighborhood Justice Program, as a panelist, I aided in the reduction of crime and assisted the community by means of implementing restorative justice practices. Beyond this work, I served on the LAPD PALS Board of Directors to bridge community relations and assist local neighborhood youth. I also had the opportunity to attend the Wells Fargo oversight hearings related to banking fraud and identity theft. Moreover, I am a proud breast cancer survivor and an advocate for adequate health care for all.
At this pivotal time in our history, I believe in bringing a strong voice of compassion, ethics, humanitarianism, and bold leadership to the 45th Assembly District. My background in public service and as a powerful female leader has enabled me to enter this campaign in a desire to bring an awareness and community-transparency to the West San Fernando Valley. I am an accessible and levelheaded individual and have a vested interest in the future of the San Fernando Valley for my family and yours.
