Mayor Eric Garcetti will be the keynote speaker at the June 17 general luncheon membership meeting of the Crenshaw Chamber of Commerce, and the public is invited to ask their questions about business concerns.
The luncheon will be held at noon at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza second floor bridge and admission is $15 in advance and $20 the day of the event.
Those interested in submitting a question, can do so in advance by sending the query to firstname.lastname@example.org or going to the chamber website and posting the question: www.crenshawchamber.com. June 10 is the deadline to post a question.
This is the first time a mayor has spoken at the predominantly African American chamber, and among some of the concerns members have are the number of new jobs available for area residents; business opportunities as well as the preservation of current businesses during the construction of the Crenshaw Light Rail.
Other points the chamber will address during the luncheon are economic development along the Crenshaw corridor; the mayor’s plans for small businesses in the greater Crenshaw community; elimination of the Cost of Living Adjustment Business Tax; and what part will the city play in making Leimert Park a tourist destination.
