On Saturday, Team Cedillo and the LA Conservation Corps unloaded 40 vehicles at our event. We collected bulky items that filled two (40 cubic yard) bins and 65 tires for recycling. In addition, we received 70 pieces of e-waste that included 18 TVs. All eligible recycled e-waste products redeemed will benefit Florence Nightingale Middle School. People expressed appreciation for having this drop off opportunity so Team Cedillo is planning more across the district. Special thanks to LAUSD Principal Dr. Gaeta, and LAUSD School Boardmember Dr. Ref Rodriguez for their partnership and support.

Last week, Team Cedillo joined the City of LA Board of Neighborhood Commissioners to honor the 15th Anniversary of the Glassell Park Neighborhood Council, who was the third neighborhood council to be certified by the City. It was nice to see past and present neighborhood council members attend to celebrate this achievement. We look forward to working together to bring government and community closer together.
Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition Opens This Weekend

Councilmember Cedillo is co-presenting Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition, a family friendly fantasy stage musical set in the fictional Middle Eastern City of Agrabah. This story comes to life in Boyle Heights as a beloved Disney princess finds true love with a penniless young man with a magic carpet in a land inhabited with a bigger than life Genie, royal translators, troublemakers, and fast-talking comedic bilingual animal sidekicks.
Everyone in Agrabah used to speak two languages. When the evil Jafar found the Genie's magic lamp, he wished to divide Agrabah by language so that the people in the palace would speak Spanish and the people in the streets would speak English. Jafar would continue to speak both, giving him more power.
The production is performed in English and Spanish and is fully understandable to people who speak either or both languages.
