State Sen. Tom Hayden will address San Fernando Valley secession and other issues at a meeting of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. on Wednesday night.
Hayden's talk on "The State of the City" is scheduled for 6:30 at Glendale Federal Bank.
"Nearly everyone agrees that changes must take place in Los Angeles city, whether it is dividing the city or charter reform," said association president Richard Close.
"Sen. Hayden has recently moved from Santa Monica to Los Angeles. We want to find out what changes he proposes."
Hayden, a Democrat whose district includes part of the Valley, reluctantly voted for a secession bill introduced by state Sen. Paula Boland. He has said he prefers trying to change the existing governmental structure.
It is unlikely that Hayden will address the mayoral race before the November election, Close said.
The bank is located at 13300 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks.
