Thousands of people from our area attend to learn about how Los Angeles runs - AND WHO RUNS LOS ANGELES. 

What I'm trying to say is that this is a special opportunity to get to know the people who make things happen and let them know about what's working and what's not. Face-to-face meetings are easily supplemented with email or social media so staying in touch is easy.

Count my hands as also being on deck, Eddie and Heather! 

As Publishing Editor of the "The Daily Advocate" ~ Our resources are committed to parsing the "language", expressed/implied, flowing out from the Los Angeles City Council, County Board Of Supervisors and the California State Legislature. It truly is an exciting time of transformation indeed Heather to be living in Leimert Park.

That's a great Resolution, Eddie. I'm joining you in the commitment to attend and support more community meetings, organizations and events. I'm honored to be part of the great transformation that's underway. We've got a lot of work to do on our community and we need all hands on deck!

Don't forget about the Leimert Park Village Stakeholders meetings held every Monday (except holidays) at the Vision Theatre (10am)! 

Happy New Year...
