LACERS would like to congratulate Cynthia Ruiz on her new appointment to the Department of Water and Power’s Board of Administration. As Cynthia leaves her role as the President of the LACERS Board of Administration to pursue this new role, we would like to sincerely thank her for her commitment and dedication to our organization. She has been a great asset to our department and its Members during her 6+ years as a LACERS Board Member and just over 4 years as President. Her impact has been felt across the organization, from supporting LACERS’ involvement in Environmental, Social and Governance investment initiatives to serving as an advocate for LACERS’ Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts. She also led the charge during the acquisition of LACERS’ new headquarters building in Chinatown, which we are excited to get up and running for Members and staff. While we will miss Cynthia’s invaluable leadership here at LACERS, we look forward to seeing her excel in her new role with DWP.
