I want to thank you for sending a strong and clear message to the Los Angeles City Redistricting Commission: Don’t Divide the 11th Council District!
Because of you, we have gathered more than 1200 signatures for our petition, urging the commission to keep Westchester in the 11th District. In addition to signing the petition, I urge you to attend the Los Angeles City Council Redistricting Commission meeting which will take place in our district on Thursday, February 2nd, 6:30 p.m., at the Westchester Recreation Center, 7000 West Manchester Avenue, Los Angeles, 90045 (directions).
Why is this important?
The 11th City Council District of Los Angeles is a unified, compact district with natural and sensible boundaries. It makes no sense to divide its communities, ripping apart neighborhoods, and destroy the strong partnerships shared by the Westside and coastal communities.
If you believe in the sense of community in our coastal district, then sign the petition.
It is particularly disturbing to tear Westchester two, dividing them from Los Angeles International Airport and Playa del Rey. Westchester, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista, and LAX are inextricably linked, sharing a neighborhood council, a community plan area, and a chamber of commerce. We need to keep the 11th District whole and intact and if you feel strongly about the sense of community in our district, then please sign the petition.
We are in this together, and I want to continue to fight for our district and represent you on the issues that are important to our Westside community: easing gridlock on our roads, modernizing the airport, and advocating for a transparent government.
