Dear <<First Name>>,

As we enter the holiday season and look forward to gathering again with family, friends and loved ones, it is also important to practice caution in regard to the safety of yourself and your home.

I encourage you to stay vigilant against the increase in home theft that can often occur this time of year, as more people leave their homes for holiday travel and other activities.

Here are some helpful, easy tips to protect your home and your loved ones.  

✅Be extra cautious about locking doors and windows when you leave the house, even for a few minutes
✅ When leaving home for an extended time, have a neighbor or family member watch your house and pick up your newspapers and mail
✅ Indoor and outdoor lights should be on an automatic timer
✅ Leave a radio television on so the house looks and sounds occupied
✅ Large displays of holiday gifts should not be visible through the windows and doors of your home

For more information about how you can stay safe this holiday season, please visit this informative website from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

In addition, you can also contact your local LAPD Division for further resources:

Hollywood Division - (213) 972-2971
Northeast Division - (323) 561-3211
Olympic Division - (213) 382-9102

And, as always, please contact us if you have any questions, comments or concerns - (213) 207-3015. We’re at your service and here to help. 

 
Be safe and well,

MITCH O'FARRELL

 

TEAM MITCH MAKING A DIFFERENCE

HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN - Maintaining our alleyways and addressing chronic illegal dumping is a top priority of our team. Recently, our Council District 13 Clean Team partnered with LA Sanitation and Environment to remove more than one ton of illegal dumping in an alley between Beverly Boulevard and Court Street, just west of Burlington Avenue. If you know of an alley in need of attention, please contact our team at (213) 207-3015.

CELEBRATING OUR FUTURE FILMMAKERS

HOLLYWOOD - On Monday, Councilmember O'Farrell was privileged to meet some of our future filmmakers and honor local high school students from historically underserved communities who recently completed the NewFilmmakers LA (NFMLA) mentorship program. For years, Councilmember O'Farrell has leaned-in to support local organizations like NFMLA, which is hard at work creating the next generation of creatives through mentorship and career guidance. Thank you NFMLA for advancing this important work. We're proud to partner with you in this endeavor. 

SHOP SMALL AT HOLLYWOOD MAROUCH

EAST HOLLYWOOD - On Small Business Saturday, we were excited to highlight Hollywood Marouch, an East Hollywood institution that has been serving outstanding Middle Eastern cuisine since 1982. Approaching their 40th year in business, the past is always part of the present at Hollywood Marouch - due in no small part to the family recipes that are still the bedrock of their menu. Please remember to shop small and support businesses like Hollywood Marouch, which make the 13th District the amazing place that it is!

HISTORIC FILIPINOTOWN - Unfortunately, due to unforeseen challenges related to labor and supply chain issues affecting our nation and world, the Historic Filipinotown Eastern Gateway project will be delayed.
