Dear <<First Name>>,

My team and I are at your service seven days a week, working to improve the quality of life across the 13th District.  

This Saturday, August 7, at 9am, we’ll be hitting the streets of East Hollywood for my 73rd Councilmember in Your Corner (CYC), where we'll join city and community volunteers to beautify and spruce up the neighborhood. 

The event will kick off at the Barton Avenue Median  - 5451 Barton Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90038 - and will include: 
  • community clean-up in partnership with local residents
  • Door-to-door canvassing to connect community members with important city services
  • Tree trimming and maintenance performed by the City’s Urban Forestry Division
As a volunteer in my neighborhood prior to a career in public service, I’m acutely aware that Los Angeles’ size can sometimes make it difficult for residents to engage with their local government. This is why I began organizing these CYC events as soon as I took office in 2013 to better connect 13th District residents with the services provided by the City.

We look forward to serving you and bringing City Hall directly to your doorstep this Saturday, August 7 at 9am at the Barton Avenue Median. I hope you will take a moment to RSVP.

For further questions and information, please contact my East Hollywood Field Deputy George Hakopiants at (213) 207-3015.


Kind regards,

MITCH O'FARRELL

 

TEAM MITCH MAKING A DIFFERENCE

HOLLYWOOD - The Council District 13 Clean Team recently completed a series of beautification projects in Hollywood, removing discarded furniture including mattresses, bookcases and couches. Here is just one example of their exemplary work on Barton Avenue between El Centro Avenue and Gower Street. If you see an area in need of attention, please contact our District Office at (213) 207-3015.

FIGHTING FOR RENT RELIEF

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles renters, as well as mom and pop landlords, are still hurting from the pandemic — which is why I introduced a motion yesterday that will help deliver immediate rental relief to thousands of Angelenos through the State of California’s “Housing is Key” program. Using $5.2 billion of federal assistance, the program could cover up to 100% of back-rent owed by California renters since April 1, 2020. As we await this state assistance to arrive, rest assured that our City’s eviction moratorium is still in place and won’t be lifted until one year after our emergency order ends. If you have questions about rental assistance or the eviction moratorium, please contact my District Office at (213) 207-3015.

CITY TO JOIN 'LIGHT UP NAVAJO' INITIATIVE

LOS ANGELES - On Friday, Councilmember O'Farrell introduced a motion calling on the City to join “Light Up Navajo,” a mutual aid program that helps bring electricity and power to all corners of the Navajo Nation, where 15% of families have no access to electrical infrastructure of any kind.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY AT ECHO PARK LAKE!

ECHO PARK LAKE - On Saturday, our office partnered with the Echo Park Community Parade and the Department of Recreation and Parks to host a Christmas in July celebration at Echo Park Lake. Families enjoyed games, popcorn and popsicles while watching a holiday classic - Elf! We look forward to bringing back more events for local families at the lake.

NEW PUBLIC MURAL UNDERWAY

EAST HOLLYWOOD - On Saturday, Councilmember O'Farrell joined local children and families from Dayton Heights Elementary to paint the first strokes of a new 300 foot mural on the exterior of the school. Thank you to Arts Bridging the Gap and school administrators for partnering with our office on this initiative. Together, we can beautify our communities one mural at a time. 

MORE SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE ON THE WAY

LOS ANGELES - California has announced three additional rounds of funding for small businesses, totaling $1.5 billion. Previous applicants who were waitlisted will be automatically entered into the latest rounds, while cultural institutions, non-profits and new businesses can begin applying as soon as Friday, August 27.

REMEMBERING SAGINAW GRANT

CITY HALL - Councilmember O'Farrell adjourned Friday's City Council meeting in memory of Saginaw Grant, an internationally recognized icon of the Native American Community whom we lost last week. In addition to a trailblazing career in film, Saginaw also participated in our inaugural Indigenous Peoples Day in 2018, leading the Sac and Fox Tribe in the parade of tribal nations on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall. For this and so much more, we revere and honor Saginaw Grant’s memory.
