Mar Vista Welcomes Mayor, Police Chief-designate Charlie Beck

Bill Rosendahl Hosts Mar Vista Town Hall with LAPD-Chief Appointee
Los Angeles City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be hosting a community meeting this Tuesday 11/10 from 6 to 7:30pm at the Mar Vista Recreation Center to introduce LAPD Chief-designate Charlie Beck. Residents are encouraged to express their priorities and concerns to the newly appointed chief before the City Council votes on his confirmation later this month to replace Chief William Bratton.

Mar Vista Votes on Climate Action
Immediately following Tuesday's town hall with the Mayor and his LAPD-chief appointee Charlie Beck, the Mar Vista Community Council will be voting on a historic motion to make Mar Vista the first neighborhood in Los Angeles to achieve 100% clean electricity by 2018. Over 120 residents have signed the petition so far in support of this goal to reduce our community's carbon emissions and exposure to the rising costs of coal-powered electricity. Please sign the petition before Tuesday if you have not already.
