She also serves as a member of the legislative committee for the Los Angeles Division of the League of California Cities.

“As a deputy district attorney for Los Angeles County, Mayor Pro Tem Dieringer provides an added layer of risk management to the City of Rolling Hills’ policies and practices to minimize risks,” said Jeng. “She encourages the city to seek resources from the California JPIA whenever possible, and highly values and often attends training opportunities designed by the California JPIA.”
