Thanks to everyone for coming out for the Fourth of July Parade and helping out in whatever way you did. So many of you did little and big things to help us look the part in the parade. We were able to spread our message with thousands of people today. It was a good idea and thanks to those who suggested it and keep their eyes on public outreach opportunities. For those who could not attend, please know others represented you and our communities and you’ll have future opportunities to help out in whatever way is best for you.
Dear Chairman Richard:
On behalf of the united communities in the northeast San Fernando Valley, which includes several hundred thousand residents, I’m writing to again convey that your Agency’s follow-up on numerous public and elected official requests is inadequate and disappointing. Despite your public statements about increased transparency and your use of the term “harrassment” to describe our many, many efforts to get responses from your staff on numerous matters, as impacted stakeholders engaged in the Authority’s outreach program, we will not be ignored or marginalized.

We wanted to give you an update of how much time, effort and effectiveness volunteers from your community are putting forth in the FIGHT to rid our communities of the threat of highspeed trains. The SAFE Coalition and community volunteer leaders from throughout the northeast San Fernando Valley have sustained an unprecedented level of effort in early 2016 through community outreach, political lobbying, petition gathering, media outreach, attendance and both written and verbal testimony at numerous high speed train related meetings and events in the past few weeks. Involvement includes the Shadow Hills Property Owners Assn., Lake View Terrace Improvement […]
On behalf of communities throughout the Foothills area of the northeast San Fernando Valley, it’s a pleasure to invite you to attend a “Candidate Meeting/Forum” for the 39th Assembly District on Friday, April 8, 2016, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Tierra del Sol (9919 Sunland Blvd.). Since we’ve either spoken to or left messages for each of you, the purpose of this note is to formalize the date/time/location and provide an overview of the meeting. Details related to the format will be sent to you shortly, as well.
This election information program is an activity we routinely host […]
