Newly elected Councilmember David Ryu (CD4) will name Nikki Ezhari to be his Field Deputy for the Miracle Mile-Wilshire-Larchmont area of Council District 4. It reprises a role Ms. Ezhari performed for former Councilmember Tom LaBonge several years ago.
David Ryu’s Chief of Staff Sarah Dessault said “Councilmember Ryu is extremely excited to bring Nikki on board. She has strong ties to the Miracle Mile, Greater Wilshire, Hancock Park community, and is dedicated to bringing access to government and transparency. And, excellent customer service.”
News of Ms. Ezhari’s appointment circulated at the LAPD Town Hall Meeting at the Wilshire Ebell last night July 14 when she told a group she was taking over the position and that “I will start on August 6”.
Ezhari joins Renee Weitzer, also a former deputy to LaBonge, on Councilman Ryu’s staff, making two of his first key appointments significant in that he is recalling two LaBonge deputies to serve in his office.Tim Deegan is a community leader in the Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles.
