City Council Member Akilah Weber Speaking

The La Mesa Chamber of Commerce held their second breakfast meeting of the year on Wednesday, March 6th. There was an overwhelming crowd that gathered to meet La Mesa’s newest elected Council Member, Dr. Akilah Weber. There were many new faces in the crowd, including new members that joined us on this special morning. Dr. Weber was elected to the La Mesa City Council in November 2018. Dr. Weber is a board-Certified obstetrician/gynecologist and the Director of the Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology Division at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. Dr. Weber shared her commitment to listening to members of the community and encouraged people to email her on any issue that they wish addressed. To reinforce that commitment, Dr. Weber shared that she is launching her “Community Chat with Your Councilmember” on Saturday, May 4th. She invited everyone to attend and be a part of the dialogue on any subject they wish. This first community chat will be held at Sylvan Learning, 8366 Parkway Drive in La Mesa at 7:00 a.m. Dr. Weber discussed items that have recently been on the Council agenda and took questions from the audience.

The sponsor of this breakfast meeting was Carl Burger Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM World, who are constant supporters of the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce and the community. Unfortunately, the Carl Burger team were not able to attend, but we thank them for their support and look forward to seeing them at our next breakfast meeting. Joe Flaherty and his competent team served a hearty breakfast of: egg casserole, bacon, sausage, potatoes, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, coffee, orange juice and more! Everyone had a great time and the prizes flowed with Doug Battey being one of the luckiest winners of the morning!
