nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana a causa del COVID-19 y muy a mi pesar, los números crecieron de 106 a 192 nuevos casos positivos, y de 4 a 17 muertes. Aunque muchos de nosotros nos estamos vacunando, debemos seguir usando mascarillas, practicar la sana distancia, no reunirnos con personas fuera de nuestro hogar, lavarnos las manos con frecuencia y vacunarnos. Y aunque estas medidas nos tengan cansados, solo así podremos salir de la oscuridad.

Esta semana lancé mi nuevo camión repartidor de comestibles para distribuir fruta fresca y otros artículos en todo el Distrito 1. Si necesitas que el camión vaya a tu vecindario, comunícate con mi oficina llamando al (213) 473-7001 o escribiendo a [email protected]

Me complace compartir el nuevo Flipbook del Programa para Compradores de Vivienda por Primera Vez del Departamento de Vivienda + Inversión Comunitaria para ayudarte a construir un patrimonio firme para ti y para tu familia. También ampliamos nuestra colaboración con People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) con un contrato para proporcionar un Equipo de Alcance para ayudar a más personas sin hogar en nuestro distrito.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó ajustes presupuestarios y nuevos fondos para el Programa de Bonos de Obligación General de Agua Limpia de la Propuesta O. Se aprobaron $16 millones de dólares en fondos de la Proposición O para el Proyecto de Mejoras a la Calidad del Agua Taylor Yard G2 del Distrito 1.

Estén atentos a la reunión del Concilio de la semana que viene, cuando estamos programados para escuchar iniciativas de políticas públicas que impactan las vidas en el Distrito 1 porque son requeridas y necesarias.

Los angelinos tendrán menos opciones de vivienda asequible a medida que expiren los convenios

El Concejal Cedillo propuso congelar en toda la ciudad el alquiler de las unidades con convenios vencidos o a punto de vencerse hasta que se puedan proporcionar viviendas comparables, en consecuencia de las preocupaciones de salud y seguridad pública sobre el desalojo de personas durante la pandemia.

Abogados y personal de vivienda de la ciudad informarán al Concilio sobre sus recomendaciones. La moción de Cedillo busca extender los convenios que expiran en la ciudad o ayudar a los inquilinos a mudarse a unidades con rentas asequibles. Está pendiente un informe sobre las opciones.

Concejal apoya la reutilización adaptativa

CCA MyNewLA Article Photo

He luchado arduamente por la reutilización adaptativa desde que representé al Downtown como senador estatal y fui el autor de LA Downtown Rebound (AB 1901 y AB 2870), que incluía $19 millones para la reutilización adaptativa, $3.6 millones para viviendas multifamiliares de bajos ingresos, y $2.4 millones en fondos para el desarrollo y la planificación.

Continuaré apoyando más viviendas en todos los niveles e impulsando el desarrollo económico a medida que nos recuperamos de la pandemia mediante la expansión de la reutilización adaptativa.

Espero trabajar con CCA en sus recomendaciones para actualizar las políticas de la ciudad sobre reutilización adaptativa para aplicarlas en toda la ciudad y para una mayor variedad de edificios y usos futuros, incluida mi moción para considerar cómo los hoteles podrían convertirse en micro viviendas.

Presentamos el equipo PATH de alcance comuntario del Distrito 1

Justin and Maribel PATH Staff Assigned to CD 1 4-16-2021

El Equipo Cedillo ayuda a nuestros vecinos sin hogar a recibir servicios y ayuda para asegurar un refugio y vivienda permanente. El mes pasado, ampliamos nuestra colaboración con People Assisting The Homeless (PATH por sus siglas en inglés) proporcionando dos miembros del Equipo de Alcance Comunitario para ayudar a las personas sin hogar en todo nuestro distrito. Ellos son Mary y Justin:

Justin

Mi nombre es Justin Ravega y me interesan los servicios para personas sin hogar desde que viví en la calle. Aún así, tuve el privilegio de asistir a la Universidad Politécnica de Pomona de California para estudiar psicología, pero preferí convertirme en paramédico (EMT por sus siglas en inglés) para servir inmediatamente a la gente desarrollando habilidades prácticas durante las respuestas de emergencia. Como EMT durante más dos años, he visto innumerables batallas por la vida, y espero tratar a nuestros vecinos sin vivienda y sin refugio, con la dignidad y el respeto que se merecen. Hay mucho trabajo por hacer y estoy agradecido por la oportunidad de servir como administrador de casos de alcance comunitario en colaboración con PATH.

Maribel

Mi nombre es Maribel Hernández, ¡Pero llámame Mary! Nací y crecí en el Valle de San Fernando con fuertes raíces mexicoamericanas. Soy graduada de UCLA 2019 con una licenciatura en sociología y estudios chicanos, asistí al Centro para el Estudio de la Salud y la Cultura LatinX y fuí voluntaria en el Centro Familiar de Mar Vista. He trabajado con organizaciones sin fines de lucro enfocadas en reducir las barreras entre la educación superior y los jóvenes con pocas oportunidades. La experiencia personal de mi familia con la falta de vivienda me llevó a una carrera en PATH. Me apasiona ayudar a las personas vulnerables y desfavorecidas. Con mucho orgullo y entusiasmo desarrollaré mi función como administradora de casos de PATH y servir al Distrito 1.

  • New First Time Homebuyer Program Flipbook

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

This week our COVID-19 cases went up from 106 cases to 192 and deaths from 4 to 17. Although more of you are getting vaccinated, we all must continue to wear masks, practice social distancing, not gather with people outside of our household, wash our hands regularly, and get vaccinated. I know we keep stressing this and we are all tired of these measures, but we must continue if we are going to make it out of the dark.

This week I was happy to launch my new mobile grocery truck that is distributing fresh fruit and other items throughout CD 1. Please contact my office if you would like the truck to come to your neighborhood at 213-473-7001 or [email protected].

I am also sharing with you the new First Time Homebuyer Program Flipbook from the Housing + Community Investment Department to help you build wealth for yourself and your family. We also expanded our partnership with People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) with a contract to provide a two-member Outreach Team to work across our district to increase our efforts to help people experiencing homelessness.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

Councilmember Cedillo proposed a citywide rent freeze on units with expired or soon-to-expire covenants until comparable homes can be provided, based on health and safety concerns about displacing people during the pandemic. City housing staff and lawyers are expected to report back to the City Council with recommendations. Cedillo’s motion asks for recommendations on extending expiring covenants in the city or assisting tenants with relocating to other affordable units. A report back on options is still pending.

Councilmember Cedillo proposed an ordinance that passed the Housing Committee, which he chairs, was aimed at “the small percentage of despicable, predatory, bullying landlords.” “It would prohibit landlords from targeting renters in a range of ways, including threatening tenants with physical harm, telling others about their immigration status, falsely telling renters they have to clear out of a unit, and failing to follow standards to protect them from dust and asbestos,” Emily Alpert Reyes, Los Angeles Times, April 15, 2021.

Councilmember Cedillo Supports Adaptive Reuse

CCA MyNewLA Article Photo

I have been a fierce advocate for adaptive reuse since I represented Downtown as State Senator and was the author of the Los Angeles Downtown Rebound (AB 1901 and AB 2870), which included allocating $19 million for adaptive reuse, $3.6 million for low-income multi-family housing and $2.4 million in development and planning grants. I will continue to support the creation of more housing at all levels and spur economic development as we recover from the pandemic by expanding adaptive reuse. I look forward to work with CCA on their white paper’s recommendations to update the City’s policies on adaptive reuse to apply citywide and to a greater variety of buildings and future uses including my motion to consider how hotels might convert to micro-unit housing. – Councilmember Cedillo

Introducing CD1 PATH Outreach Team

Justin and Maribel PATH Staff Assigned to CD 1 4-16-2021

Photo Credit: PATH

Team Cedillo is committed to helping our unhoused CD1 community members receive services and assistance to secure shelter and permanent housing. Last month, we expanded our partnership with People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) with a contract to provide a two-member Outreach Team to work across our district to increase our efforts to help people experiencing homelessness. This month the team is fully staffed, and we want to introduce you to Mary and Justin who are committed to making a difference in the lives of our unhoused CD1 community members.

Justin

My name is Justin Ravega and I have been interested in homeless services ever since I experienced homelessness myself. I had the privilege of attending California Polytechnic University of Pomona to study Psychology immediately after high school.  I soon realized it was not quite where my interests lay. I left to become an EMT to immediately serve the public and develop practical skills and composure during emergency responses. Being an EMT for 2 years and counting, I have seen countless struggles and I am looking forward to treating our unhoused and unsheltered neighbors with the dignity and respect they deserve. There is still much work to be done and I am grateful for the opportunity to tackle it with PATH as an Outreach Case Manager.

Maribel

My name is Maribel Hernandez, I go by Mary! I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. I am a first-generation college graduate with strong Mexican American roots. I graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Chicano Studies. There, I assisted the Center for the Study of LatinX Health and Culture and volunteered with the Mar Vista Family Center. I have a background in applied behavior analysis working with children on the Autism Spectrum. Additionally, I have experience working with other non-profit organizations centered around minimizing the barriers between higher education and disadvantaged youth. Ultimately, my family’s own experience with homelessness led me towards choosing a career with PATH. I have a passion for helping vulnerable and underprivileged populations and I am excited to make a difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness. In my spare time, I enjoy powerlifting, reading, and staying active. I am also a foodie and enjoy trying new places to eat! Looking ahead, I plan to continue my career with graduate school. I look forward to my professional development as an outreach case manager with PATH and servicing the CD1 area!

Councilmember Cedillo has built Streetscapes so that restaurants throughout the First Council District can open safely for outdoor dining.

Councilmember Cedillo worked with LADOT’s Al Fresco Program and local non-profit the Arroyo Arts Collective to provide K-rails along with lattice and lights to make the sidewalks on North Figueroa St. in Highland Park. Combined with area restaurants that had already taken advantage of the Al Fresco program to add seating in their parking lots, the area is seeing more and more people coming back to eat outside safely and putting community members back to work.

Amigos y amigas:

Tenemos que protegernos entre nosotros ahora que el Condado de Los Ángeles pasa al nivel naranja permitiendo que la mayor parte de la economía se reabra. Si todos nos vacunamos, lograremos que más personas vuelvan a su trabajo.

Para hacer una cita para vacunarte, visita myturn.ca.gov, o comunícate con mi oficina al (213) 473-7001 o escribe a [email protected].

Recuerda que se mantienen las recomendaciones de salud pública como reunirte con amigos y familiares de manera segura al aire libre, usar mascarilla, practicar la sana distancia de 6 pies, haciéndote la prueba si piensas que has estado expuesto al coronavirus. Si haz viajado y tienes síntomas, ponte en cuarentena y vacúnate en cuento sea tu turno.

Esta semana, el Estadio de los Dodgers reabrió sus puertas al público con capacidad limitada. Más negocios, comercios y en su momento nuestras escuelas, abrirán a medida que nos vacunemos y continuemos con protocolos de higiene. Recuerda que si podemos vencer esta pandemia con el apoyo de unos a otros.

Atentamente,

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó una moción importante sobre la transferencia de $20 millones de los fondos de la Medida W para una rehabilitación muy necesaria del lago del MacArthur Park.

El Concilio también aprobó el Informe de Planificación Anual para el 2021 para el Distrito de Mejoramiento Comercial del Gran Lincoln Heights; el informe cumplió con la ley estatal y el aumento presupuestario coincide con las intenciones del plan de administración del distrito de BID. También encontró que se mantienen los beneficios para los propietarios evaluados.

Finalmente, mi resolución de apoyar un hogar permanente para el Centro Laboral de UCLA, con el nombre de “Centro de Justicia para Trabajadores Reverendo James Lawson de UCLA”, fue aprobada por unanimidad. El Rev. Lawson es uno de los pocos gigantes que quedan del Movimiento de Derechos Civiles. Esta distinción se debió hacer mucho tiempo. El Centro estará ubicado en el corazón del Distrito 1.

Esta semana, LADOT y la Oficina de Ingeniería se unieron al Equipo Cedillo y a los miembros de la comunidad para activar cuatro nuevas balizas peatonales intermitentes en cuatro intersecciones del Distrito 1.

Las balizas peatonales intermitentes se instalaron para mejorar la seguridad y la visibilidad de los peatones en:

  • Avenue 35 y Eagle Rock Boulevard en Glassell Park
  • Avenue 41 y Eagle Rock Boulevard en Glassell Park
  • Avenue 60 y North Figueroa Street en Highland Park
  • Venice Boulevard y South Bonnie Brae Street en Pico-Union

El Equipo Cedillo se ha comprometido a vacunar a todos, incluyendo a nuestras comunidades más vulnerables y personas sin hogar. Junto con el Departamento de Servicios de Salud del Condado, hemos organizado clínicas de vacunas mensuales en Mac Arthur Park y puestos emergentes en todo el distrito para llegar a las personas sin hogar. Nuestros voluntarios nos ayudan a buscar a quienes quieren la vacuna y los canalizamos a una clínica emergente en el área.

La semana pasada, realizamos nuestra clínica mensual en MacArthur Park y una clínica emergente en Debs Park para llegar a las personas sin hogar que viven en el parque y en el canal Arroyo Seco. Pusimos 81 vacunas y volveremos el mes que viene para administrar la segunda dosis.

Dear Friend,

As LA County moves to the orange tier allowing more of the economy to re-open, let's continue to keep each other safe. We will continue getting more people back to work if we all get vaccinated.

If you haven’t gotten vaccinated yet, make a plan! Go to myturn.ca.gov to sign up for appointment notifications or contact my office at [email protected] or 213-473-7001. Please continue to gather safely outdoors, wear masks, practice 6 feet social distancing, get tested if you’re exposed or have symptoms, quarantine if you travel, and get vaccinated when it is your turn.

This week Dodger Stadium celebrated opening day with a limited capacity. More businesses and eventually our schools will open as more of us get vaccinated and if we continue safe practices. We can get there if we all support each other to conquer this pandemic.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

This week, Council passed an important item pertaining to  the transfer of much needed Measure W funds in the amount of $20 million for our MacArthur Lake Rehabilitation Project.

Council also approved and found that the Lincoln Heights Property-based Business Improvement District Annual Planning Report for 2021 complied with State Law and the budget increase concurs with the intentions of the Greater Lincoln Heights Property BID's Management District Plan. It also found that it does not adversely impact the benefits received by assessed property owners.

Finally, my resolution to support the construction and the establishment of a permanent home for the UCLA Labor Center that will be named the UCLA Reverend James Lawson Worker Justice Center was unanimously approved as well.  Rev. Lawson is undoubtedly one of the few remaining giants of the Civil Rights Movement who remain with us today.  It is an honor that is long past due. The Center will be figuratively and physically located in the heart of the First District.

Team Cedillo is committed to vaccinating everyone especially our most vulnerable communities including people experiencing homelessness (PEH). Together with the LA County Department of Health Services we have hosted monthly vaccine clinics at MacArthur Park and pop-up sites across the district to reach PEH. Our outreach teams work with us to identify PEH interested in the vaccine and then we find a suitable area where we can set up a pop-up clinic based on interest from PEH in the surrounding area. Last week, we held our monthly clinic at MacArthur Park and a pop-up clinic at Debs Park to reach PEH living in the park and Arroyo Seco Channel.  We administered 81 vaccines total and will be back for second doses in a month.

Cedillo Día a Día:

  • Campaña educativa de "Vacúnate"

  • Reporta actos de odio contra asiáticos

 

 

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana continuamos nuestras jornadas de vacunación. En coordinación con CORE, Carbon Health y el Departamento de Bomberos, ya vacunamos a más de 7,000 personas en nuestros vecindarios. Esta semana inicié una campaña dirigida a personas de la tercera con el objetivo de informarles que la vacuna es segura y que no les transmitirá el coronavirus. Al contrario, la vacuna los protegerá contra el COVID-19, evitando que sean hospitalizados o morir.

La campaña “Vacúnate” incluye anuncios de servicio público para radio y televisión en español, así como videos de residentes y líderes comunitarios que publicaremos en redes sociales. Si quieres participar en esta campaña, envíanos un video de 1 minuto diciendo porqué es importante vacunarse; graba y envía tu video en un mensaje de texto al (213) 618-5312.

Esta semana seguí protestando sobre el odio contra asiáticos y lancé una campaña con el fin de recopilar información sobre este tipo de incidentes. Queremos identificar a posibles víctimas y en donde se ubican con el propósito de exigir una mejor protección y recursos.

Si necesitas ayuda para ti o para tu familia, no dudes en comunicarte con mi oficina llama al (213) 473-7001 o escribiendo a [email protected]

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

El Concejal Cedillo lanzó un anuncio de servicio público (PSA) y una campaña de video en español para alentar a los adultos mayores a recibir la vacuna del COVID-19.

En las recientes cuatro semanas, el Concejal Cedillo ha proporcionado más de 7,000 vacunas del COVID-19 gratuitas en coordinación con CORE, Carbon Health y Departamento de Bomberos en cinco puestos locales: Pico-Union, Chinatown, Westlake, Glassell Park y Lincoln Park. Desafortunadamente, la cantidad de adultos mayores latinos que se vacunan es baja. Por ejemplo, en Pico Union solo entre el 20% y el 25% de las personas que se vacunaron eran latinas.

“Más de medio millón de latinos en el condado de Los Ángeles están infectados con COVID-19 y más de 11,000 murieron. No dejes que más de nuestros abuelos, mamás, papás, hermanas y hermanos mueran”, dijo Cedillo en su anuncio de servicio público.

“La vacuna no te dará COVID-19. Las vacunas reducen el riesgo de contraer COVID-19 preparando las defensas naturales del cuerpo y generando protección para reconocer y combatir los gérmenes. Es posible que se produzcan efectos secundarios como fiebre, dolor, fatiga o dolores de cabeza, pero la vacuna puede salvar tu vida y la de tus seres queridos.

“No se cuestionará tu estado migratorio cuando programes una cita o cuando recibas la vacuna. Vacúnate para protegerte a ti, a tu familia y a nuestra comunidad latina”.

SPANISH COVID CASE CHART

SPANISH COVID DEATH TOLL CHART

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

El Concilio aprobó tres mociones específicas del Distrito 1 esta semana:

  • Aprobó mi reasignación de fondos TFAR a la Oficina de Embellecimiento Comunitario (OCB) para limpiar callejones y agregar adornos y plantas en cinco sitios del distrito.
  • También aprobó mi moción para apropiar y transferir fondos AB 1290 para aumentar los servicios comunitarios y de reurbanización, y servicios adicionales de la Oficina de Saneamiento.
  • Finalmente, se aprobó mi moción para que la intersección de Avenue 26 y Jeffries Avenue se llame “Annette Cardona Square”. Nacida en el Distrito 1, Annette Cardona interpretó a Cha-Cha, en la película taquillera "Grease" en 1978. El cambio de nombre responde a una petición popular.

REPORTE DE VIVIENDA

La ciudad lanza un programa de asistencia para el alquiler de emergencia

El Concejal Cedillo ofreció un discurso inaugural de la Serie de Oradores del Centro de Estudios Latinos en las Américas de la Universidad de San Francisco del Center for Latina/o Studies in the Americas | University of San Francisco (usfca.edu).

El senador Alex Padilla se desempeñó como director de campaña de Gil Cedillo en su primera candidatura a un cargo electivo a la Asamblea Estatal. Un artículo de L.A. Times indica que, "Cedillo ve el ascenso de Padilla como parte de los frutos de esa dura batalla por la Proposición 187 y el sentimiento antiinmigrante que representaba ..." Esa guerra se está ganando", dijo Cedillo. "Y él es la prueba de eso, tenerlo en el Senado de los Estados Unidos", Sarah Wire, Los Angeles Times, 24 de marzo de 2021.

Dear Friend,

In partnership with CORE, Carbon Health, and LAFD we’ve now vaccinated over 7,000 people in CD 1 neighborhoods. I have kicked off a "Get Vaccinated" education campaign to get more Latino seniors vaccinated, to let them know the vaccine is safe, will not give them the virus, and will protect them and their loved ones from getting COVID-19, being hospitalized, or dying from it.

My “Get Vaccinated” Education Campaign includes public service announcements that will run on Spanish TV and radio and videos that several residents and community partners have recorded, which we will post on social media. Please send us your 1-minute video and tell your neighbors why you think it is important they get vaccinated and text it to Conrado TerrazasCross with my staff at 213-618-5312. We will share your video.

I continue to speak out against anti-Asian hate and have launched an educational campaign to gather information on incidents to push for better protection, educational resources, and policies. We are trying to identify who this is happening to and where.

Please contact my office if I can be of any assistance to you and your family at 213-473-7001 or [email protected]

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

Councilmember Gil Cedillo launched a public service announcement (PSA) and video campaign in Spanish and English to encourage Latino seniors to get a COVID-19 vaccine. In the past four weeks, Councilmember Cedillo has provided over 7,000 free COVID-19 vaccinations in partnership with CORE, Carbon Health, and LAFD at five local sites including Pico-Union, Chinatown, Westlake, Glassell Park, and Lincoln Park. Unfortunately, there are low numbers of Latino seniors getting vaccinated. For example, in Pico-Union only 20%-25% of the people getting the vaccine were Latino.

In his PSA to Latino seniors, Councilmember Gil Cedillo stated:

“Over half a million Latinos in LA County are infected with COVID-19; over 11,000 died. Don’t let more of our grandparents, moms, dads; sisters, and brothers die. The vaccine will not give you COVID-19. Vaccines reduce your risk of getting COVID-19 by preparing the body’s natural defenses to build protection to recognize and fight off germs. Some side effects such as fever, soreness, fatigue, or headaches may occur, but the vaccine can save your life or the lives of your loved ones.  You will not be asked for your immigration status when you make a vaccination appointment or when you get your vaccine. Join me in getting the vaccine to protect you, your family, and the entire Latino community.”

Three district-specific items were passed in Council this week.

  • Council approved my reallocation of TFAR funds to the Office of Community Beautification (OCB) to provide alley clean-up and add gating amenities, including plants, at five sites across the district. 
  • Council also passed my item to appropriate and transfer AB 1290 funds to augment redevelopment and community services, and Bureau of Sanitation additional services.
  • Finally, the intersection of Avenue 26 and Jeffries Avenue would be named Annette Cardona Square.  A native of the First District, Annette Cardona played Cha-Cha, the girlfriend of a rival greaser gang in the 1978 blockbuster hit "Grease".  The naming was initiated by a widely supported and popular petition that was circulated in the nearby areas of the intersection.

  • Moción del Concilio para congelar renta de viviendas con convenios de asequibilidad

 

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

Estoy muy preocupado y molesto por el terrible aumento de la violencia en contra de la comunidad asiático-americana. Como Concejal representativo de un número significativo de estadounidenses de origen asiático, incluidos chinos, coreanos, filipinos y vietnamitas, desapruebo enérgicamente estos horribles actos de violencia en vano que han arrojado muertos y heridos. Estos ataques, alimentados por el racismo y la xenofobia, imponen un estrés físico y emocional para las víctimas y sus familias.

Hace un mes me manifesté sobre la violencia contra los asiáticos; la violencia ha continuado sin cesar, incluidos los recientes y horribles asesinatos de mujeres en Georgia. Les hago un llamado para hacer nuestra parte y luchar contra el alarmante aumento de la violencia contra los asiáticos. Cuando veamos aversión en nuestra comunidad, debemos denunciarla para crear una conducta de intolerancia hacia quienes promueven el odio y la violencia contra los asiáticos.

Por otra parte les informo que estamos avanzando en la lucha contra el coronavirus. Hemos vacunado a más de 5,000 personas en las últimas tres semanas en cinco lugares. Ofreceremos vacunas gratuitas COVID-19 sin necesidad de cita previa la semana que viene del martes 23 de marzo al sábado 27 de marzo en dos ubicaciones:

  • Westlake en el Teatro Frida Kahlo, 2332 W. Fourth Street, Los Ángeles, 90057 de 1:00 pm a 3 pm.
  • Lincoln Park, 3501 Valley Blvd., Los Ángeles, 90031, de 9 am a 3 pm.

Encuentra más detalles sobre tu elegibilidad y regístrese en el sitio de Lincoln Park aquí. https://carbonhealth.com/covid-19-vaccines/los-angeles

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Esta semana la junta del Concilio fue más importante de lo habitual para el Distrito 1. Hubo dos mociones clave:

1. Presenté una moción para congelar la renta inmediatamente de unidades residenciales con convenios de asequibilidad vencidos o por vencer.

Los convenios de asequibilidad se firman entre los propietarios, constructores y la Ciudad. La mayoría implica un acuerdo del propietario para mantener las unidades "asequibles" durante un período de tiempo, generalmente más de una década o dos, a cambio de algún incentivo financiero de la Ciudad. Los incentivos incluyen bonificaciones de densidad, financiamiento a bajo interés y subsidios de alquiler. En la mayoría de los casos, los propietarios tienen la libertad de subir los alquileres a las tarifas del mercado una vez que expira el convenio.

Antes de la pandemia del COVID-19, miles de unidades de convenio asequibles expirarían este año. Ello empeoró las condiciones de nuestras familias más vulnerables, muchas de los cuales han perdido sus trabajos y se atrasaron ​​con la renta. Cuando se levanten las órdenes de emergencia del COVID-19, la mayoría enfrentarán el desalojo. Quienes viven en unidades de convenio asequibles que expiran, como Hillside Villa en Chinatown, tendrán que abandonar sus hogares a menos que puedan pagar el triple de la renta porque ese es el precio del mercado.

Mi moción examinará la posibilidad de congelar rentas en toda la ciudad de los apartamentos en donde los convenios de asequibilidad con la ciudad han expirado o están a punto de expirar.

Los detalles de la moción son los siguientes:

INSTRUIR al Departamento de Vivienda e Inversión Comunitaria (HCIDLA por sus siglas en inglés), junto con el Fiscal de la Ciudad, para que analice e informe sobre recomendaciones de la implementación de un congelamiento de renta inmediato hasta que se proporcionen unidades de vivienda asequibles comparables a los inquilinos afectados.

INSTRUIR a la HCIDLA para que recomiende opciones para que los inquilinos se reubiquen en unidades de vivienda asequibles comparables para personas de bajos ingresos, y opciones de financiamiento para extender los convenios de asequibilidad en toda la ciudad para prevenir un desalojo masivo.

2. Una segunda moción aborda el tema de refugios y refugios de invierno extendidos. Está previsto que estos lugares cierren en dos semanas y no podemos permitir que esto suceda. En muchos distritos, estos refugios es un tema de vida o muerte para muchas personas sin hogar durante el invierno.

También apoyé la moción para que la CAO en siete días proporcione un informe verbal al Concilio sobre el financiamiento y las opciones para mantener nuestros refugios abiertos después del 30 de marzo.

Como autor de la California Dream Act del 2011 (AB 130 y AB 131), que permitió a los niños indocumentados solicitar ayuda financiera estatal y becas no estatales para colegios y universidades, es una gran noticia para mí la decisión de la Corte Suprema de rechazar el intento del ex presidente Trump de la derogación del DACA.

Así mismo, celebro la aprobación de la Ley de Promesa y Sueño Americano de la Cámara de Representantes, que permitiría a 2.3 millones de "Dreamers" obtener un estatus legal permanente con camino a la ciudadanía estadounidense. Estoy muy contento de que esta Ley de Promesa y Sueño Americano también permitiría que 300,000 inmigrantes que viven en los Estados Unidos, con TPS (Estatus de Protección Temporal y Salida Forzada Diferida) sean automáticamente elegibles para solicitar el estatus permanente si han vivido en este país durante al menos tres años.

Dear Friend,

I am dismayed by the shocking increase of senseless violence being perpetrated upon members of the Asian American community. As a Councilmember that represents significant numbers of Asian Americans, including Chinese, Korean, Filipinos, and Vietnamese, I am disgusted by these horrific acts of violence that have resulted in death and injuries. These attacks, fueled by racism and xenophobia, have not only taken a physical toil on the victims, but severe emotional impact on them and their loved ones.

I issued a statement on anti-Asian violence a month ago, but the violence has continued unabated including the most recent horrible murders of women at the Georgia spa. We must all do our part in battling the alarming rise of Anti-Asian violence. When we see hate, we should report it so that we create a culture of intolerance to those who espouse hate and perpetrate violence against Asians.

This week we move even further to overcome the Coronavirus. We’ve vaccinated over 5,000 people in the past three weeks at five locations. We will be offering free COVID-19 vaccinations with no appointment necessary this coming week on Tuesday, March 23rd to Saturday, March 27th, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Westlake at the Frida Kahlo Theater, 2332 W. Fourth Street, Los Angeles, CA 90057, and at Lincoln Park, 3501 Valley Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90031, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Tuesday, March 23rd to Saturday, March 27th. More details on eligibility are included in the flyers below. If you are eligible, please register for the Lincoln Park site here.

Please contact my office if I can be of any assistance to you and your family at 213-473-7001 or [email protected]

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

Roadmap to Recovery - Updated LA County - What is Open 3-15-2021

Here are the latest protocols for opening sectors below:

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

"As the author of the 2011 California Dream Act (AB 130 and AB 131), which allowed undocumented children to apply for state-funded financial aid and non-state funded scholarships for colleges and universities; the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision rejecting President Trump’s attempt to repeal DACA is great news. I gladly welcome the House of Representatives passage of the American Dream and Promise Act, that would allow 2.3 million “Dreamers” to gain permanent legal status and eventually, become U.S. Citizens. I am also ecstatic that the American Dream and Promise Act will also allow 300,000 immigrants living in the U.S with Temporary Protected Status and Deferred Enforced Departure, would automatically be eligible to apply for permanent status if they have lived in the U.S. for at least three years."

Councilmember Cedillo was at Graff Lab today happy to see that over 300 Pico Union residents were getting their COVID-19 vaccine today and 1,500 this week. He shared that the vaccines reduce your risk of getting COVID-19 by preparing the body’s natural defenses to build protection to recognize and fight off germs. It doesn’t give you COVID-19. Some side effects such as fever, soreness, fatigue or headaches may occur, but the vaccine can save your life or lives of your loved ones.

  • ¡Se derrumban números del COVID-19!

  • $1.9 mil millones del Plan de Alivio del presidente Biden brindará la ayuda muy necesitada.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana nos fortalecimos aún más en la lucha contra la pandemia. El número de personas contagiadas por coronavirus en el Distrito 1 bajó de 329 a 306 y el número de muertes bajó de 29 a 16. Yo sé que es muy lamentable la pérdida de 16 almas, pero también sé que hay menos vecinos a los que hay que despedir con lágrimas.

Los puestos de vacunación en el Distrito 1 vacunaron a 800 personas en Pico Union hace dos semanas y 1,000 personas más en Westlake la semana pasada; esta semana vacunamos a más residentes del noreste de Los Ángeles en Glassell Park. Agradezco a los grupos comunitarios y consejos vecinales que colaboran con mi oficina para movilizar a las personas para ser vacunadas; si necesitas ayuda para transportarte a un puesto de vacunación comunícate con nosotros. Continuaré con estos puestos de vacunación de fácil acceso por tiempo indefinido y a medida que ampliemos la elegibilidad a más categorías, también estaremos disponibles para todos.

Estoy muy contento por la aprobación del proyecto de ley del Plan de Alivio del presidente Biden para el COVID-19. Me aseguraré de conseguir todos recursos posibles que necesitamos para poner fin a esta terrible pandemia, incluyendo para nuestras familias indocumentadas por quienes aún queda mucho por hacer.

Por favor comunícate con mi oficina en caso de que necesites una ayuda, apoyo o servicio para ti o para tu familia.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo, Concejal Distrito 1

VACUNA DEL CORONAVIRUS

Vaccine Flyer Graff Lab Week of March 16-20 FINAL SPANISH

Vaccination Site Flyer - Lincoln Park SPANISH

Preguntas frecuentes: ¿Qué significa estar completamente vacunado?

Hispanic_20senior_20citizens Photo Credit Austintexas.gov

Foto: Austintexas.gov

¿Qué significa estar completamente vacunado?

Se considera que una persona está vacunada por completo al menos dos semanas después de recibir su dosis final contra el coronavirus. Para las vacunas Moderna y Pfizer, que requieren dos dosis, esto significa dos semanas después de la segunda dosis. Para la vacuna Johnson & Johnson, que requiere solo una dosis, esto significa dos semanas después de la primera y única dosis.

¿Qué puedo hacer después de estar completamente vacunado?

  • Las nuevas pautas dicen que las personas vacunadas pueden reunirse con otras personas vacunadas en interiores sin máscaras ni distanciamiento social.
  • Las personas vacunadas también pueden reunirse con personas no vacunadas de un mismo hogar, sin máscaras ni distanciamiento social, siempre y cuando ninguna de las personas no vacunadas corra riesgo de contraer COVID-19.
  • Si se reúne con personas no vacunadas de alto riesgo, tome precauciones como usar mascarilla, reuniones en el exterior y mantener la sana distancia.
  • Si se reúne con más de un hogar no vacunado, también se deben seguir los mínimos métodos de higiene y precaución: usar mascarilla y mantener la distancia.
  • Las personas que han sido completamente vacunadas deben continuar usando máscaras y mantener el distanciamiento social cuando estén en lugares públicos.

¿Puedo viajar ahora?

El Centro de Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC por sus siglas en inglés) no ha publicado ninguna nueva guía de viaje. Debido a que sigue existiendo la preocupación sobre la propagación de variantes del coronavirus. Además, porque el número de personas vacunadas en todo el país sigue siendo bastante bajo, debe evitar los viajes no esenciales, especialmente porque algunos estados están eliminando sus restricciones y mandatos de usar mascarilla.

¿Qué pasa si estoy expuesto al COVID-19 después de la vacunación?

Si está completamente vacunado y ha estado expuesto al COVID-19, no necesita ponerse en cuarentena o hacerse la prueba si no tiene síntomas. Sin embargo, sí comienza a mostrar síntomas después de la exposición al virus, ponte en cuarentena y hazte la prueba. Si es posible contraer COVID-19 incluso después de estar completamente vacunado, pero se prevé que las vacunas frenen seriamente los casos de coronavirus moderado y grave.

¿Puedo transmitir COVID-19 después de estar completamente vacunado?

Parte de la razón por la que se sigue recomendando el uso de mascarilla en público aun después de haber sido vacunados es que los científicos aún no tienen suficiente información sobre el impacto de la vacuna y de cómo frena la propagación del virus. Esto debido a que es relativamente reciente el proceso de vacunación.

También puedes leer este comunicado de prensa con información sobre la elegibilidad de vacunas para agentes de seguridad, conserjes, trabajadores del transporte público y personal del aeropuerto.

A partir del 15 de marzo, son elegibles para la vacuna, las personas de 16 a 64 años que presentan condiciones de salud o discapacidades subyacentes que las ponen en mayor riesgo de enfermarse gravemente por COVID-19. Estas condiciones incluyen:

  • Cáncer, con un sistema inmunológico debilitado actualmente
  • Enfermedad renal crónica, etapa 4 o superior
  • Enfermedad pulmonar crónica, dependiente de oxígeno
  • Síndrome de Down
  • Trasplante de órganos sólidos, que conduce a un sistema inmunológico debilitado.
  • Embarazadas
  • Anemia drepanocítica
  • Enfermedades cardíacas, como insuficiencia cardíaca, enfermedad de las arterias coronarias o miocardiopatías (pero no hipertensión)
  • Obesidad severa con un IMC de más de 40
  • Diabetes tipo 2 con nivel de A1c superior al 7.5%
  • Incapacidad física que haría probable que una enfermedad grave por COVID-19, limitaría la capacidad de la persona para recibir atención vital o haría que el tratamiento para COVID-19 sea complicado.

“El lunes 8 de marzo se celebró el Día Internacional de la Mujer, un día que celebra los logros históricos, culturales y políticos de la mujer. Mi difunta esposa, Ruby Oliva Cedillo, quien falleció de cáncer de mama hace varios años, dedicó parte de su vida a llevar a ayuda a los desamparados. Ayudó a personas sin hogar, visitó campamentos de libertad condicional del condado a través del ministerio de su iglesia y tenía un sentimiento especial por los niños con cáncer. Me hizo prometer que aprobaría una ley estatal para permitir que las personas indocumentadas soliciten una licencia de conducir de California, y lo cumplí. Ella es un genuino ejemplo de cómo nuestro mundo no podría funcionar sin mujeres. Celebro los esfuerzos de Ruby y los esfuerzos de todas las mujeres del mundo. ¡Feliz Día Internacional de la Mujer!"

Russell Zamora Retirement v2

Foto: José Rodríguez

El Equipo Cedillo reconoció y agradeció a Russell Zamora quien se jubila después de 34 años de servicio dedicado a la Ciudad de Los Ángeles. Russell fue uno de los empleados originales de LASAN (LA Sanitation), que en el 2013 trabajó con el Concejal Cedillo para crear el programa piloto “CD1 Keep It Clean”. Ayudó a diseñar cuadrantes en Westlake y Pico Union que recibieron un mayor despliegue de camiones de limpieza y trabajadores públicos. La diferencia fue notable y reconocida; y el programa Clean Streets LA se extendió en toda la ciudad.

Russell fue seleccionado para supervisar Clean Streets LA, que ahora se conoce como la División de Servicios de Habitabilidad. Esta es solo una de las muchas formas en que Russell ayudó a cambiar LA, no porque fuera su trabajo, sino porque ama a Los Ángeles. En su tiempo libre, ayudó a organizar y coordinar una colecta de juguetes y EL festival navideño anual “Rollin Deep”, con una caravana de autos clásicos, low-riders y motocicletas comenzando en el Ayuntamiento y culminando con una distribución comunitaria de juguetes en LAFD Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center. Russell marcó la diferencia en Los Ángeles dentro y fuera de su horario. Le deseamos un merecido, feliz y saludable retiro.

Dear Friend,

This week we have gotten even stronger in our fight to end the pandemic. The number of people testing positive in CD 1 went down from 329 to 306 and the number of deaths decreased from 29 to 16. It is horrible that we lost 16 souls, but there are fewer people that we will tragically mourn.

Our vaccination sites in CD 1 provided 800 people with vaccines in Pico-Union two weeks ago, 1,000 people in Westlake last week and we will inoculate even more Northeast LA residents this week in Glassell Park. I  thank the community groups and neighborhood councils who have partnered with my office to help us mobilize people to get these vaccines, which we are making accessible to our constituents in their neighborhood. Rest assured that I will continue these pop-up vaccination sites that are easily accessible to you, indefinitely; and as we expand eligibility to more categories.

I am ecstatic with the passage of President Biden’s COVID-19 Relief bill. We are going to start getting the resources we need to help end this terrible pandemic. But much yet needs to be done for the undocumented and their children.

Please contact my office if I can be of any assistance to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

Myth Versus Fact

FAQ: What it Means to Be Fully Vaccinated

Hispanic_20senior_20citizens Photo Credit Austintexas.gov

Photo Credit: Austintexas.gov

A person becomes fully vaccinated at least two weeks after their final dose of a coronavirus vaccine. For the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, which require two doses, this means two weeks after the second dose. For the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which requires just one dose, this means two weeks after the first and only dose.

What can I do after being fully vaccinated?

  • The new guidelines say that fully vaccinated people can gather with other fully vaccinated people indoors without masks or social distancing.
  • Fully vaccinated people can also gather with unvaccinated people from one household, without masks or social distancing, provided that none of the unvaccinated people are at risk for severe COVID-19. 
  • If you do gather with high-risk, unvaccinated people, precautions like masking, gathering outside, and keeping distance should still be maintained.
  • If you gather with more than one unvaccinated household, the same mitigation methods should also be followed.
  • People who have been fully vaccinated should continue to wear masks and maintain social distancing when in public places.

Can I travel now? 

One area where the CDC is still cautious is travel: No new guidelines about traveling were released. That choice likely has to do with worries about spreading coronavirus variants. Since the rates of people vaccinated nationwide are still fairly low, people should avoid nonessential travel, especially as some states begin to remove their restrictions and mask mandates.

What if I'm exposed to COVID-19 after vaccination?

If you are fully vaccinated and have been exposed to COVID-19, you do not need to quarantine or get tested if you are asymptomatic. However, if you start showing coronavirus symptoms after exposure to the virus, you should quarantine and get tested. It is possible to contract COVID-19 even after being fully vaccinated, but vaccines are expected to seriously curb cases of moderate and severe coronavirus.

Can I transmit COVID-19 after being fully vaccinated?

Part of the reason the guidelines emphasize wearing a mask in public even after being vaccinated is that doctors are still unsure just how vaccination curbs the spread of the coronavirus.

Please also see the county press release with new information about vaccine eligibility for custodians and janitors, public transit workers, and airport ground crew workers and upcoming eligibility beginning March 15 for people ages 16 through 64 who have underlying health conditions or disabilities that put them at the highest risk of becoming very sick from COVID-19.

Next week, on Monday, March 15, vaccine eligibility will open up to people ages 16 through 64 who have underlying health conditions or disabilities that put them at the highest risk of becoming very sick from COVID-19. These conditions include:

  • Cancer, with a current weakened immune system
  • Chronic kidney disease, stage 4 or above
  • Chronic pulmonary disease, oxygen-dependent
  • Down syndrome
  • Solid-organ transplant, leading to a weakened immune system
  • Pregnancy

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the historical, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is also a day of action in support of acting against gender inequality around the world. We all know the world couldn’t run without women. This was the day to appreciate their efforts! Thank you, women, of the world, you are valuable in today’s society. Here in the First Council District, women are the backbone of improving our neighborhoods and maintaining the stability of our families as we persevere through this pandemic.

Councilmember Cedillo Recognized His Late Wife Ruby Oliva Cedillo on International Women’s Day

“Monday was International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the historical, cultural, and political achievements of women. My late wife, Ruby Oliva Cedillo, who passed away from breast cancer several years ago, had a penchant for the underdog. She helped the homeless, visited county probation camps through her church ministry, and had a special empathy for children with cancer. She made me promise to pass a state law to allow undocumented people to apply for a California Drivers’ License, which I kept. She is representative of how our world couldn’t run without women. I appreciated Ruby’s efforts and the efforts of all women of the world. Happy International Women’s Day!”

Thank You for 34 Years of City Service: Russell Zamora, LASAN

Russell Zamora Retirement v2

Photo Credit: LASAN

This week Team Cedillo said goodbye and thank you to Russell Zamora, LA Sanitation (LASAN) who is retiring after 34 years of dedicated service to the City of Los Angeles. Russell was one of the original LASAN staff that in 2013 worked with Councilmember Cedillo to create the CD1 Keep It Clean Pilot. He helped design quadrants in Westlake and Pico-Union that received increased deployment of sanitation trucks with a new component, manual laborers with hand tools. This was never before done by LASAN. The difference was noticeable and measured and it was replicated citywide and called Clean Streets LA.

Russell was selected to oversee Clean Streets LA, now known as the Livability Services Division. This is just one of the many ways Russell helped change LA not because it was his job, but because he loves LA. On his time off, he helped organize and coordinate an annual Holiday Toy Drive and Giveaway called Rollin Deep that included a caravan of classic cars, lowriders, and motorcycles that started at City Hall and culminated at LAFD Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center with a community toy distribution. Russell made a difference in LA while on and off the clock. We wish him a happy and healthy retirement.

Dear Friend,

We are making strides to overcoming the pandemic. I know it has been very painful and devastating for many of you. But we will get through this.

As part of my efforts to ensure equitable distribution of vaccines, I have hosted pop-up vaccination distribution sites in partnership with the Mayor for the past two weeks. We’ve vaccinated up to 200 people a day in Pico-Union last week and over 400 a day in Westlake this week. On Tuesday, March 9th thru Saturday, March 13th, we are offering vaccinations at the Glassell Park Recreation Center, 3650 Verdugo Road, Los Angeles, CA 90065. Those eligible are seniors 65+, teachers, grocery workers, first responders, restaurant workers, and childcare workers not receiving vaccinations via unions. Please call now to make an appointment at 213-473-7001 or [email protected].

I continue to advocate on your behalf. This week the City Council adopted my motion to establish a “Hillside Construction Regulation Supplemental Use District" and the Council appropriated funds in CD 1 for projects that address racial and economic disparities and reimagine public safety. It is a big win for residents of our district.

Please contact my office if I can be of any assistance to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

There were two items that are worthy to note in this week's Council actions.  

One was to override the Mayor's Veto to the Council action of December 9, 2020, relative to the reinvestment of funds from the LAPD budget to impacted communities.  In a letter to the Council dated March 2, 2021, the Mayor expressed his full support for the override.  He wrote:

"Our constituents count on us to work side-by-side with their interests in mind - and share a commitment to their vision for a city defined by justice, equity, and consciousness of the role that local government can play in mending the wounds of history.  I appreciate the step you are taking in that direction, and look forward to us taking many more together in the weeks, months, and years to come."

Included in this action is to appropriate funds in CD 1 for projects that address racial and economic disparities, and reimagine public safety. It is a big win for residents of our district.

On the next day, Council adopted my motion to establish a “Hillside Construction Regulation Supplemental Use District” corresponding to the boundary of the Mount Washington - Glassell Park Specific Plan.  The measure will not prevent new development of houses but regulate construction activity to protect the safety of people who live in the neighborhood.  Here’s a link to the Council’s action.

The regulations:   

  • Establish a maximum of 6,000 cubic feet of grading on a site (inclusive of import and export of soil) with some additional limitations for sites on substandard streets
  • Require that more projects obtain haul route approvals than would otherwise be required (i.e. if more than 1,000 cubic feet of soil is being hauled, then a haul route approval would be needed as compared to the 30,000 cubic feet allowed today)
  • Limit haul trips to no more than four per hour, and prohibit truck convoys
  • Limit construction activities to Monday through Friday (i.e. Saturday exterior construction is banned)
  • Require that any house larger than 17,500 sq. ft. obtain a site plan review approval

The City Attorney has achieved a crucial victory for our seniors, one of our most vulnerable populations,” stated Councilmember Gil Cedillo. “Patient dumping, abuse, neglect, and denial of care by Lakeview Terrace Skilled Nursing Facility is outrageous and unacceptable. I took action against the dumping issue when I introduced SB 275 in the state legislature that would outlaw patient dumping by hospitals. This was occurring in Skid Row and the bill made it a misdemeanor to leave a hospital patient at a facility without his or her consent. We must remain vigilant in keeping nursing home operators accountable to ensure the best care for our seniors.”

Dear Friend,

This week we rolled out vaccination pop-ups in my district for seniors 65 years of age and over. We had pop-up vaccination sites in Pico-Union and Chinatown all week. We are working hard to provide vaccinations to our vulnerable CD 1 seniors in their neighborhoods.

We will continue our vaccination pop-ups at other locations in CD 1 and expand eligibility from seniors 65 years and older to educators, restaurant workers, and childcare workers not receiving vaccinations via their union. If you meet any of these qualifications and live in CD 1, please contact my office at 213-473-7001 or [email protected]

I also joined my Latino and African-American colleagues on the City Council in signing a letter to Governor Newsom and the LA County Board of Supervisors urging that they make vaccinating all 25,000 school faculty and staff – not just those 65 and over – a top priority. Our children need to go back to school, but only if all faculty and staff are vaccinated.

Please let my staff and me know if we can be of any assistance to you. We are in this together and will keep providing you and your family with resources to keep you safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

Council approved the ordinance pertaining to Family and Medical Leave, to provide Paid Parental Time (PPT) Time for DWP and City employees for  the pilot period of 1/1/21 through 6/30/25.  Council also took a significant step forward towards approving the final ordinance to provide additional pay to grocery and drug retail workers on the frontlines of Covid-19.  

Not receiving as much media coverage is an item passed by Council relative to a review of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, addressing federal assistance gaps and resources for undocumented immigrants.  This is a major outreach effort by the City to increase the participation of undocumented immigrants in the City's program and services.

This week in Council, Councilmember Gil Cedillo spoke about the difficulty that already exists opening a grocery store in Chinatown, in CD 1, “Mr. Koretz, you may not have a problem having a supermarket in Westwood, but I can't get one in Chinatown,” stated Councilmember Cedillo. “... while I support this (ordinance) wholeheartedly, I want us to also recognize that reality ... for example, when the Walmart made a business decision to leave Chinatown, they left a void, and so what we have there is an exercise gym, but we don't have a supermarket for residents of Chinatown.''

The ordinance needed to be unanimously approved in order to pass on its first reading. Because Lee voted no, the ordinance will have a final vote on March 3.

Clarifying Our Policy on Oversized Vehicles

RV - Eastsiderla Jesus Sanchez

It has been brought to our attention that several social media posts shared inaccurate information. This post is to correct the record. Councilmember Cedillo’s resolution to install oversized vehicle parking restrictions was prompted by residents and businesses in several neighborhoods who contacted our office regarding public safety and health concerns they have with the oversized vehicle parking. This includes hitched and unhitched trailers, large stake bed trucks, RVs, and any other oversized vehicle. We have not banned vehicle dwelling in our district nor is it banned in the City of LA. In fact, we offer vehicle dwellers alternative locations to park at night with meals and services at our two Safe Parking locations that Councilmember Cedillo arranged in Glassell Park and Westlake. Additionally, we created a no cost RV Waste Disposal Program at our Sanitation Yard in Lincoln Heights to deter waste from the public right of way. 

Furthermore, while homelessness increased in the City of LA by 16.1% in 2020 compared to 2019, it decreased by 3.8% in CD 1 because of the work of Councilmember Cedillo. Council District 1 has been at the forefront of building more affordable and permanent supportive housing units. We have more than quadrupled the United Way Pledge of building 222 permanent supportive housing units and lead all other Council Districts with 917 units built in addition to the 817 units we created before the pledge. Councilmember Cedillo has demonstrated a record of developing housing and delivering services to the homeless in CD1.

HOUSING UPDATE

Housing istockphoto-506443128-612x612

The Housing Committee passed Councilmember Gil Cedillo’s motion instructing the Housing and Community Investment Department, with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.

“With the City at risk of losing thousands of affordable housing units through the impending expiration of regulatory rent covenants, I am taking the first step of preventing homelessness by keeping people in their homes. Regulatory covenants are recorded on a property to ensure the long-term affordability of units, often in return for a public subsidy or housing density bonus,” stated Councilmember Gil Cedillo. “Many covenants are now reaching an expiration date, which would effectively remove the affordability requirements, and allow an owner to raise rents. We can’t let this happen especially during the time of a health pandemic because we can't create any opportunity for any resident to be unable to afford to stay in their own home.”

The motion also instructs the Housing and Community Investment Department to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.

OTHER UPDATES AND NEWS

California is Offering Stimulus Checks to Undocumented Uouseholds

Here's how to qualify

In order to provide relief to immigrant communities financially affected by the coronavirus pandemic, California is making available stimulus checks to those who file taxes with Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers, also known as ITINs.

The Internal Revenue Service issues ITINs to undocumented immigrants who don't qualify to receive Social Security Numbers, but they must first provide completed tax forms and documentation to receive one.

Governor Gavin Newsom in 2020 approved a budget deal that allows Californians with ITINs who earn less than $30,000 a year to access the California Earned Income Tax Credit and the Young Child Tax Credit.

Those eligible to receive the state's earned income tax credit can receive a one-time payment of $1,200 under Newsom's Golden State Stimulus plan.

Separately, ITIN filers who earn under $75,000 a year are expected to receive a one-time $600 stimulus payment.

I live in California. How do I know if I'm eligible to get a $600 stimulus payment?

Stimulus Payment

The law will send out a total of 5.7 million payments to low-income Californians, according to the release. The following California residents will be eligible for a $600 payment:

  • Those who qualify for the state Earned Income Tax Credit on their 2020 tax returns. Typically, this includes those with annual incomes below $30,000, and some undocumented and mixed-status families. Last year, 3.9 million people applied for the credit.
  • Those with Individual Tax Identification Numbers, or ITINs, as opposed to Social Security numbers, who were excluded from receiving a first federal stimulus check of up to $1,200, or a second federal stimulus check of up to $600. The agreement provides the $600 payments to households with ITINs and income below $75,000. 
  • Households enrolled in the CalWorks public assistance program.
  • Recipients of SSI/SSP.
  • Recipients of Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants, or CAPI.

Another detail: ITIN taxpayers who also qualify for the California Earned Income Tax Credit would receive a total of $1,200. The payments will be provided to these households shortly after they file their 2020 tax returns. (Here's everything new you need to know about this year's taxes.)

When might my $600 stimulus check arrive? Will it be a check, direct deposit or something else?

coronavirus_stimulus_checks_2x

According to the State of California Franchise Tax Board, payments will be issued after eligible 2020 tax returns are processed. Those who are qualified and set up direct deposit when they file their return can expect a payment within 45 days, and those who do not have direct deposit will receive a paper check within 60 days. 

Here is a more specific timeline for when you might receive your payment, according to data from the California Department of Finance collected by CalWorks

  • Low-income workers eligible for the state Earned Income Tax Credit: Four to five weeks after filing 2020 tax return if you have direct deposit. Six to seven weeks after filing, if you need the check mailed.
  • Undocumented workers with ITINs: Four to five weeks after filing 2020 tax return if you have direct deposit. Six to seven weeks after filing, if you need the check mailed.
  • CalWorks recipients: By mid-April.
  • Recipients of SSI/SSP and CAPI: Unclear; timing depends on coordination with the Social Security Administration, according to the state.

The money should arrive to those eligible automatically after filing your tax return. The payment expires on Nov. 15, according to the Tax Board -- to make sure you get yours, file your 2020 tax return by the extension deadline of Oct. 15 (the regular deadline without an extension is April 15).

StreetsLa to Modify Its Street Sweeping Operations On March 1st

StreetSweepingPost

Starting on Monday, March 1, StreetsLA will modify its street sweeping operations, while launching a new notification system where residents can register for notification of when their street will be swept.

StreetsLA has created the “Street Sweeping Near Me” notification system. At the StreetsLA website, anyone can explore the map of sweeping routes across the City and sign up for email notification about when their street will be swept. Notifications will be sent 24 and 48 hours before StreetsLA will be sweeping that route. This will give residents the opportunity to move their vehicle prior to the posted sweeping time and avoid being ticketed. Additionally, it is important that residents move their vehicles during street sweeping to allow our sweepers access to the curb where debris collects. Where our sweepers have to drive around parked vehicles, we cannot clean as effectively.

The “Street Sweeping Near Me” system allows users to input one or more addresses or to use an interactive map to identify multiple routes of interest, so they can receive notifications about all of their regular parking locations.

We encourage all residents to be mindful of street signage to avoid being ticketed. Vehicles will be cited if they are parked in restricted areas on days when street cleaning is scheduled. The Street Sweeping Near Me webpage and notification system will let you know when sweeping is planned for your street so you can plan accordingly. For more information about parking and parking enforcement, please visit the LA Department of Transportation's parking information pages.

If you have any questions, please contact the City’s 3-1-1 Call Center by dialing 311 on your phone, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on weekends from 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. or by using the myla311 app. For information about parking and parking enforcement, please visit the LA Department of Transportation's parking information pages.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana nos fortalecimos aún más en la lucha contra la pandemia. El número de personas contagiadas por coronavirus en el Distrito 1 bajó de 329 a 306 y el número de muertes bajó de 29 a 16. Yo sé que es muy lamentable la pérdida de 16 almas, pero también sé que hay menos vecinos a los que hay que despedir con lágrimas.

Los puestos de vacunación en el Distrito 1 vacunaron a 800 personas en Pico Union hace dos semanas y 1,000 personas más en Westlake la semana pasada; esta semana vacunamos a más residentes del noreste de Los Ángeles en Glassell Park. Agradezco a los grupos comunitarios y consejos vecinales que colaboran con mi oficina para movilizar a las personas para ser vacunadas; si necesitas ayuda para transportarte a un puesto de vacunación comunícate con nosotros. Continuaré con estos puestos de vacunación de fácil acceso por tiempo indefinido y a medida que ampliemos la elegibilidad a más categorías, también estaremos disponibles para todos.

Estoy muy contento por la aprobación del proyecto de ley del Plan de Alivio del presidente Biden para el COVID-19. Me aseguraré de conseguir todos recursos posibles que necesitamos para poner fin a esta terrible pandemia, incluyendo para nuestras familias indocumentadas por quienes aún queda mucho por hacer.

Por favor comunícate con mi oficina en caso de que necesites una ayuda, apoyo o servicio para ti o para tu familia.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo, Concejal Distrito 1

VACUNA DEL CORONAVIRUS

Vaccine Flyer Graff Lab Week of March 16-20 FINAL SPANISH

Vaccination Site Flyer - Lincoln Park SPANISH

Preguntas frecuentes: ¿Qué significa estar completamente vacunado?

Hispanic_20senior_20citizens Photo Credit Austintexas.gov

Foto: Austintexas.gov

¿Qué significa estar completamente vacunado?

Se considera que una persona está vacunada por completo al menos dos semanas después de recibir su dosis final contra el coronavirus. Para las vacunas Moderna y Pfizer, que requieren dos dosis, esto significa dos semanas después de la segunda dosis. Para la vacuna Johnson & Johnson, que requiere solo una dosis, esto significa dos semanas después de la primera y única dosis.

¿Qué puedo hacer después de estar completamente vacunado?

  • Las nuevas pautas dicen que las personas vacunadas pueden reunirse con otras personas vacunadas en interiores sin máscaras ni distanciamiento social.
  • Las personas vacunadas también pueden reunirse con personas no vacunadas de un mismo hogar, sin máscaras ni distanciamiento social, siempre y cuando ninguna de las personas no vacunadas corra riesgo de contraer COVID-19.
  • Si se reúne con personas no vacunadas de alto riesgo, tome precauciones como usar mascarilla, reuniones en el exterior y mantener la sana distancia.
  • Si se reúne con más de un hogar no vacunado, también se deben seguir los mínimos métodos de higiene y precaución: usar mascarilla y mantener la distancia.
  • Las personas que han sido completamente vacunadas deben continuar usando máscaras y mantener el distanciamiento social cuando estén en lugares públicos.

¿Puedo viajar ahora?

El Centro de Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC por sus siglas en inglés) no ha publicado ninguna nueva guía de viaje. Debido a que sigue existiendo la preocupación sobre la propagación de variantes del coronavirus. Además, porque el número de personas vacunadas en todo el país sigue siendo bastante bajo, debe evitar los viajes no esenciales, especialmente porque algunos estados están eliminando sus restricciones y mandatos de usar mascarilla.

¿Qué pasa si estoy expuesto al COVID-19 después de la vacunación?

Si está completamente vacunado y ha estado expuesto al COVID-19, no necesita ponerse en cuarentena o hacerse la prueba si no tiene síntomas. Sin embargo, sí comienza a mostrar síntomas después de la exposición al virus, ponte en cuarentena y hazte la prueba. Si es posible contraer COVID-19 incluso después de estar completamente vacunado, pero se prevé que las vacunas frenen seriamente los casos de coronavirus moderado y grave.

¿Puedo transmitir COVID-19 después de estar completamente vacunado?

Parte de la razón por la que se sigue recomendando el uso de mascarilla en público aun después de haber sido vacunados es que los científicos aún no tienen suficiente información sobre el impacto de la vacuna y de cómo frena la propagación del virus. Esto debido a que es relativamente reciente el proceso de vacunación.

“El lunes 8 de marzo se celebró el Día Internacional de la Mujer, un día que celebra los logros históricos, culturales y políticos de la mujer. Mi difunta esposa, Ruby Oliva Cedillo, quien falleció de cáncer de mama hace varios años, dedicó parte de su vida a llevar a ayuda a los desamparados. Ayudó a personas sin hogar, visitó campamentos de libertad condicional del condado a través del ministerio de su iglesia y tenía un sentimiento especial por los niños con cáncer. Me hizo prometer que aprobaría una ley estatal para permitir que las personas indocumentadas soliciten una licencia de conducir de California, y lo cumplí. Ella es un genuino ejemplo de cómo nuestro mundo no podría funcionar sin mujeres. Celebro los esfuerzos de Ruby y los esfuerzos de todas las mujeres del mundo. ¡Feliz Día Internacional de la Mujer!"

Russell Zamora Retirement v2

El Equipo Cedillo reconoció y agradeció a Russell Zamora quien se jubila después de 34 años de servicio dedicado a la Ciudad de Los Ángeles. Russell fue uno de los empleados originales de LASAN (LA Sanitation), que en el 2013 trabajó con el Concejal Cedillo para crear el programa piloto “CD1 Keep It Clean”. Ayudó a diseñar cuadrantes en Westlake y Pico Union que recibieron un mayor despliegue de camiones de limpieza y trabajadores públicos. La diferencia fue notable y reconocida; y el programa Clean Streets LA se extendió en toda la ciudad.

Russell fue seleccionado para supervisar Clean Streets LA, que ahora se conoce como la División de Servicios de Habitabilidad. Esta es solo una de las muchas formas en que Russell ayudó a cambiar LA, no porque fuera su trabajo, sino porque ama a Los Ángeles. En su tiempo libre, ayudó a organizar y coordinar una colecta de juguetes y EL festival navideño anual “Rollin Deep”, con una caravana de autos clásicos, low-riders y motocicletas comenzando en el Ayuntamiento y culminando con una distribución comunitaria de juguetes en LAFD Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center. Russell marcó la diferencia en Los Ángeles dentro y fuera de su horario. Le deseamos un merecido, feliz y saludable retiro.
