Over the past several years, the City has been incrementally improving the Lakewood Boulevard corridor through a series of multi-phased construction projects that have enhanced traffic flow efficiency and safety, as well as improved and extended the life of the infrastructure along Lakewood Boulevard.”

3.) Former California governor George Deukmejian has endorsed Mario Guerra for state Senate.
