Let's Take the Time to Thank & Honor our Veterans

Fortunate to live in a country where we can have heated political debate like Tuesday’s Presidential Election and share our opinions freely. Our Veterans and their sacrifices are a big reason why – We’ll be celebrating Veterans’ Day tomorrow in El Sereno at 10 a.m. at Huntington Drive and Eastern, and Sunday at Cinco Puntos in Boyle Heights at 10 a.m. and a ceremony at our Eagle Rock City Hall at 11 a.m. before the 1 p.m. Northeast Veterans Day Parade. Let’s all take the time to thank our Veterans this weekend and beyond!

Rest in Peace Art Snyder

L.A. Times photo
Friends: I am saddened to hear the news of the passing of former CD14 Councilmember Art Snyder. Art was a colorful character and a throwback politician who marched to the beat of his own drum. Through it all, Art Snyder faithfully represented an ever-changing Council District 14 for nearly two decades and for that, we all owe him a huge debt. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, family and friends.
