PALMDALE – Approximately 60 residents, merchants and elected officials welcomed new Palmdale City Manager Dave Childs recently during a reception hosted by the League of Women Voters Antelope Valley at the Larry Chimbole Cultural Center.
Childs spoke to the crowd, offering a brief biography of his career in planning and public administration since 1972.
He referenced past involvement in other League of Women Voters chapters, and spoke highly of the need for civility in public discourse, as he took a League membership application.
League co-founders Patricia Shaw and Sandy Corrales-Eneix explained that while the individual members are staunch Republicans and Democrats, as well as numerous decline to states, they come together under the banner of the League of Women Voters AV in a nonpartisan manner, working to engage the community and produce a more informed electorate.
Childs said, “If we can do it in Palmdale, why can’t they do it in Congress?”
