Thinking of Nancy

Dick and Nancy Riordan
Originally uploaded by lacityorgcd11.

During yesterday's City Council meeting, my colleagues joined me in sending some love and positive energy to my dear friend, Nancy Daly Riordan, former first lady of the City of Los Angeles.

As many of you may have read in the papers, Nancy recently flew back east for some surgery. She has braved it with remarkable grace, strength, and good spirit. Thankfully, she is recovering well.

Nancy, who went to the same high school as me, is truly a treasure. She is a advocate for children, having founded United Friends of the Children, and the Children's Action Network. She is also now on the board of LACMA. She and her husband Dick (who actually biked from Brentwood to my office in Westchester yesterday for a meeting) are a powerful couple to whom we all owe a huge debt of gratitude.

Nancy, all of us on the City Council, and all of us in Los Angeles, wish you lots of love and a full and speedy recovery.
