More Background

Cary has been involved in civic affairs in Los Angeles to encourage a more livable city and entrepreneurial business. As a former candidate for city controller, he helped shine the light on L.A. Fire Department response times. Since his report was published, the Los Angeles Times investigated the issue to reveal serious problems with the city’s 911 dispatch system and provide performance data on a block-by-block basis.

Working with a group of volunteers, Cary analyzed the proposed downtown stadium deal and helped successfully advocate to reduce taxpayer risk. He’s been at the forefront of advocating for the city to fix tree-damaged sidewalks, which have been neglected for a generation, pose a safety hazard for pedestrians and discourage investment in the city.

Cary is a graduate of Georgetown University.
