  • Tuesday – Councilmembers Mitchell Englander and Joe Buscaino will join the Los Angeles Police Department, the Department of Transportation to announce the implementation of a hit-and-run mass notification system within the City of Los Angeles. Join then at City Hall at 9:30 am, for the official announcement and an explanation of how it could work. Read the press announcement, here.

  • Wednesday – There won’t be a Livable Streets Candidates Forum for CD14 (Downtown, El Sereno, Boyle Heights) as there was for CD 4, but I’ve been told that this Wednesday’s event held by the Downtown and Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council’s will be the next best thing.
