Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, I am writing on behalf of Canoga Tenants and LA Tenants to urge you to support a rent freeze come April 1, 2020. Even without the current crisis, 80% of the working class typically uses money they would have otherwise spent on basic necessities like food in order to pay their rent. This reality combined with the current crisis makes paying rent for some literally impossible. While I applaud the current efforts your website highlights to help people most affected by the crisis, additionally implementing rent freeze and rent forgiveness is the only way to ensure that families can enjoy some marginal stability in these tumultuous times. In addition to this, anti-landlord retaliation must accompany these measures as well as an expansion on the current eviction moratorium by making it easier for tenants to qualify. Providing documentation that their pending eviction is connected to the current crisis is difficult for our most vulnerable populations who may lack the ability to produce these documents. Ensuring that all of these measures are in place will prevent putting families on the street, which will also prevent unnecessary risk of spreading the virus. Now more than ever, the safety of vulnerable communities and Los Angeles as a whole depends on addressing this humanitarian issue swiftly and comprehensively. If a rent freeze is not implemented by April 1, there will be a rent strike, which we all certainly wish to avoid- but will engage in if a freeze is not permitted. Thank you for your time, stay safe.
Hello Just a little suggestion I can’t help but notice we have two Taco Bell’s right near each other on Gaffey. I would love to have a Wendy’s here in San Pedro. Thank you Concetta Ellis
Just saw you on Fox. It is refreshing to see a politician in California that actually understands our situation and want to find a solution.... NOW ! I am working with our Republican Senator(John Moorlach) here in Orange County to address the homeless housing needs. I have access to many modular housing facilities that range from 70 en-suite rooms up to 1,800 en-suite rooms and all facilities have commercial kitchens, commercial laundry facilities, fitness/rehab centers, offices and full security systems. These facilities can be put into place, fully functional, in as little time as 90 days. All at a fraction of the cost of building permanent structures. You want housing immediately to provide viable shelter and support facilities for homeless???? I have it ! Work with our Senator and bring a bipartisan solution to this horrible situation your compatriots choose to ignore. Ken Rice 949-701-7546 firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, My daughter is currently a junior at San Pedro High School Flagship Campus. She has been on Varsity tennis since Freshman year. Since the school has no on-site tennis courts, the team has had to use the Daniels Feild tennis courts. Currently, the city has enforced permits and rental fees from the school to use the courts from 2-4pm. The other hours are for public use. They were locking the gates until payment of $11,000 be made from the school to Los Angeles parks and rec. Also, they are not making bathrooms available unless another $400 fee, so the students have to walk to the Boys and Girls Club to use their bathroom. The nets are in such bad shape that the Pedro team almost had to forfiet a tennis match because they are not up to code for tennis matches. As a parent, it is most frustrating to see the students locked out after walking from school to the courts and having no bathroom or fresh drinking water. This is also embarrassing when other LAUSD schools come on home games with no bathroom or clean courts. Team mom and dads have had to provide fresh drinking water for both teams as well as tarps for shade. I have contacted Daniels Feild director and maintenance about nets, and my concerns for bathroom and drinking fountains. Also, I am trying to contact Jumpp Headquaters, which is a coalition from Los Angeles County Public Health and Safety to work with trying to get a better partnership between Daniels Feild and SPHS. I have heard their is plans to make on-site tennis courts at the renovation at SPHS, but that will take time, and I am not certain if those plans will go through. I beleive it is a good idea to address this problem since this is the only off-site facility the school is paying for. The school doesn't seem to care too much about what is going on at Daniels Feild, but it should be because it is costing them $11,000 a year. I am hoping to get some support as I think would benifit the students that Daniels Feild plays more of a partnership with SPHS. Please email me with your thoughts or any feedback that you may have, I would appreciate it. Thank you, Theresa Ashmore Daughter Helena Ashmore
