Eye on the Tenth 
April 8, 2016 


Dear friends,

As you may have heard, former L.A. City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl, who represented the Westside of the city for eight years, passed away Wednesday, March 30 after a four-year battle with cancer. He was 70.

Rosendahl was remembered as a beloved civil servant who was a champion for helping the marginalized.

In honor of his memory, Councilmember Mike Bonin, Rosendahl's successor, will host a celebration open to the public. The GREAT GREAT GREAT: A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, April 16 at Mar Vista Park.

Please help us celebrate Bill's legacy.

--- Herb





Councilmembers Talk Unity in the Community with KJLH



Joined by Councilmembers Marqueece Harris-Dawson and Curren Price, Council President Herb Wesson took to the airwaves to discuss local issues the City Council is tackling.

Issues discussed included more park space, combatting homelessness, reducing crime and improving the quality of life in the communities of Council Districts 8, 9, and 10.



Wesson Honors U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer



Council President Herb Wesson joined members of the Los Angeles Business Council (LABC) to recognize the outstanding public service Senator Barbara Boxer has dedicated to California.

"Our communities are stronger because of her tireless work improving the Golden State," said Wesson. "We are all beneficiaries of her more than two decades of selfless commitment to California's working families."
