We celebrated the Annual Fall Carnival along with the $2 million of state funding awarded to the City of Gardena for the building restoration at Mas Fukai Park.
I was also proud to celebrate the $1 million in state funding we secured to revitalize Simon Meadow to allow more youth access to the Santa Monica Mountains in conjunction with the Pacific Palisades Community Council’s 50th anniversary.
I was also honored to package Project Angel Food’s 17 millionth meal for homebound Angelenos struggling with life-threatening illness as we cheered the $3 million we helped secure in last year’s state budget for the organization’s expansion.
I am so proud of our young champions from El Segundo, who won on the biggest stage at the Little League World Series this summer!
I loved joining Heal the Bay, Ocean Conservancy, and hundreds of volunteers for Coastal Clean-up Day in Venice.
I continue to be a strong proponent of safe, clean, and efficient public transportation in Los Angeles, and I couldn’t be more excited about the progress Metro is making connecting the Westside to the rest of the city. Going deep underground and seeing Metro D (Purple) Line extension along Wilshire Boulevard was fascinating.
I am glad to be in partnership with the Hollywood Arts Collective building that has just opened, providing 152 units of affordable housing to artists and their families.
We have extraordinary cultural gems in our midst, which also have challenges, including the Getty Museum, the county-owned Hollywood Bowl which we just helped through SB 96, the Historic Venue Restoration and Resiliency Act, and the state-owned Adamson House in Malibu. Like so many others in our area, these institutions serve so many Angelinos and visitors, and need our help and support.
I have long loved the work of our region's Boys and Girls Clubs, which provide such an important safe and nourishing space for kids to grow, play, and flourish after school. Happy to visit the Boys and Girls Club of Hollywood, which does excellent work boosting literacy and offering enrichment opportunities for local kids.
The Madrona Marsh is a fascinating freshwater wetland home to thriving plant and animal ecosystems right in the middle of Torrance. They provide excellent environmental educational opportunities to regional kids (an ongoing priority of mine).
Along with Assemblymember Muratsuchi, I was briefed on the latest land-movement events in the City of Rancho Palos Verdes to learn what role we can play along with city, county, and federal partners. Our teams also cohosted a town hall in Rolling Hills Estates to ensure residents are better prepared for natural disasters.
This is just a snapshot of our continuing work… we stand ready and eager to serve you; please do not hesitate to reach out!
