DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY 2011
One of the most influential, loved and despised office holders in California was Sam Yorty of Encino. He served as the 37th Mayor of Los Angeles from 1961 to 1973. Sam's long career reads almost like a script for the industry he worked so hard to keep in our city. When you get a few minutes, take time to do an on line search about his life.
