Ed Reyes, Executive Director, River LAGet Tickets
Ed Reyes brings two decades of experience working in the public sector and improving the quality of life for all Angelenos. During his tenure on City Council, Reyes chaired the Council’s Planning and Land Use Management committee where he expanded Los Angeles’ affordable housing stock. Further, he led efforts to strengthen the city's rent control ordinance making living more affordable for everyone. Reyes also took strides to improve public transit for the city, spearheading efforts as chair of the Metro Gold Line Authority to ensure that the $750 million Gold Line project be completed on time and on budget.
Most notably, as chair of the Los Angeles River Ad Hoc Committee, Reyes brought a renewed focus to the once-ignored Los Angeles River and secured more than $3 million to create a neighborhood-driven plan that included enhancing water quality, environmental protection, increasing open space and improving flood control.
Ed Reyes is replacing Angela Barranco who was appointed as undersecretary of the California Natural Resources Agency.
