Jane Usher spent three years as president of the city Planning Commission trying to end pay-to-play development deals and bring intelligent growth to LA.
She fought for rules that would protect the quality of life in neighborhoods, to stop the visual blight of billboard proleration and finally quit in protest over the corruption that was destroying the city.
Usher was instrumental in helping Carmen “Nuch” Trutanich’s successful campaign for City Attorney and sees as the turning point, the moment where power shifts from the City Hall political machine to the people.
On Wednesday, she spoke to the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Association. Watch Peter Vukovich’s videos of what she had to say and you will understand why we fight for change. There’s also a video of Trutanich talking to SOHA and making a commitment to stand with the people.
