Last summer, Larchmont Buzz editors thought it would be great to have a discussion with the mayoral candidates about the future of our city. We thought, let’s organize it around Wilshire Boulevard, the historic spine of our city, and invite all the neighborhood councils and homeowners associations along Wilshire to join in.
You are invited to join the Larchmont Buzz, the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council, Los Angeles Citywide Alliance of Neighborhood Councils, Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council, The Larchmont Chronicle, League of Women Voters, Mid-City West Community Council, Miracle Mile Chamber of Commerce, Miracle Mile Civic Coalition, Miracle Mile Residential Association, Park LaBrea News-Beverly Press and Wilshire Center-Koreatown Neighborhood Council for this real life civics lesson.
Mayoral Candidates Kevin James, Jan Perry and Emanuel Pleitez have accepted our invitation to participate in this unique grassroots discussion of issues critical to the sections of our city united by our grand Wilshire Boulevard. The town hall discussion, which will be introduced by City Council District Four representative Tom LaBonge and moderated by publisher, editor, author and journalist Kevin Roderick, will also be webcast on the John Burroughs web channel.
And, if that’s not enough to get you there, you can also register to vote! The Office of the City Clerk Election Division will be on hand to register voters, provide voting guides and recruit poll workers.
So please, come one, come all to the Wilshire Blvd Mayoral Town Hall on Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at John Burroughs Middle School. Please RSVP at [email protected].
