(Editor’s note: Circling the News received the following letter regarding a motion that will come before the homeless and poverty committee on Monday. Residents in different neighborhoods in Mike Bonin’s Council District 11 have started to share information that may affect communities.)
Dear Coalition Leaders,
Thank you to everyone who participated in the “Say NO! To the $5M Bonin Boondoggle” email campaign last Thursday. It was a tremendous success, with over 550 emails sent to every Councilmember of the City of Los Angeles.
The Homelessness and Poverty Committee deferred motion 21-0600-S99 (Bonin’s Boondoggle) to the Budget Committee on June 14, 2021, at 2 p.m. SO, WE ARE SENDING ANOTHER LETTER.
Let’s triple our impact with more outreach, we want to know why Bonin is all of a sudden asking for $5 million for a Home Program at Venice Boardwalk when he has refused to clean up the Boardwalk by not allowing LAPD to enforce 63.44 (not loitering in parks) and has not set consequences for the homeless who refuse services or accept services and use the Bridge Home as their storage room while they’re living on the Boardwalk.
We need to continue to ask for transparency, hold our councilmember accountable for failed policies, thousands of people dying on the streets and refusal to keep the public safe.
Click on the link provided, add your email address and name and, on your behalf, the software will be sending out individual emails to each councilmember of LA City, Mayor Garcetti, City Controller Galperin and City Attorney Mark Feuer.
We need the entire LA City Council to know that we say “NO” to Mike Bonin’s $5 MILLION political boondoggle. For years the homeless have been descending onto Ocean Front Walk in Venice, and now, today, when someone is actually doing something to address this problem Bonin calls an emergency meeting to allocate $5 million to address the problem? Why now? Why today? Send a letter to the entire LA City Council to let them know you say “NO!” to Mike Bonin’s Political Boondoggle! Click here.
