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. Cary also has been at the forefront of efforts to fix broken city sidewalks, which are a mobility impediment for pedestrians and discourage investment in the city.

Cary is a graduate of Georgetown University.
