Programming Change: Join Us for Google Hangout With Carolyn Ramsay Discussing Parks and Open Space Today at Noon

Join us at noon by clicking here. If you’re early, check out some of our older hangouts and videos.

That would be Carolyn Ramsay, right next to the red bow.

Due to a last minute schedule change, Council Member Tom LaBonge will not be joining us at noon today for the last installment of our Summer Series where we broadcast interviews on Google Hangout/YouTube. That’s the bad news.

The good news is, replacing him in our programming slot is Carolyn Ramsay, LaBonge’s Chief of Staff and former director of the Trust for Public Land in Los Angeles County.

While it’s sad we’re not going to get to “hang out” with the Councilman, who is always a good time, Ramsey is one of the most knowledgeable people on open space issues facing Los Angeles.

As always, if you have any questions for LaBonge you can leave them in the comments section or tweet with hashtag #sblasummer.

The hangout will be broadcast at our YouTube page, SoCal StreetsTube. After the interview has concluded, we will archive the broadcast for public viewing.
