Join your fellow housing providers for a “meet and greet” with Mayor Rex Richardson of the City of Long Beach. During this FREE, member exclusive event, you will hear Mayor Richardson’s views on the future of housing and affordability challenges in Long Beach and Los Angeles County. Mayor Richardson will be joined by other City of Long Beach Officials from the City’s Housing Authority and Health and Human Services Department.


Rex Richardson is the 29th Mayor of Long Beach: a husband, father, and trailblazer as the first Black mayor in the city’s history.

Since taking office, Mayor Richardson has led with his Opportunity Beach Agenda—the first 100-day plan ever presented by a Mayor of Long Beach. He is tackling major issues like homelessness, building an economy where everyone thrives, creating safe and healthy communities, investing in youth, and supporting a sustainable and resilient city.

In 2014, Richardson became the youngest person in history elected to the Long Beach City Council. In 2016, he was elected to a two-year term as Vice Mayor, also the youngest in city history. He was then re-elected to the Long Beach City Council in 2018 and re-elected as Vice Mayor in 2020. Regionally, Mayor Richardson has served as past President of the Southern California Association of Governments and as a board member of the South Coast Air Quality Management District. His vision is to advance the leadership of Long Beach as the second-largest city in the region, which also holds the second-largest port in the State and the fastest-growing aerospace cluster in the nation.

Moderator – Daniel Yukelson, Executive Director, Apartment Association of Greater L.A.
