Unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to read all candidates’ plans for the future of Vancouver, but I know that it’s important to keep our city vibrant. Local businesses are definitely a key factor for this particular reason. If you ever operated a business in Vancouver, you know it’s hard. Harder than any other city in Lower Mainland. To give you an idea, we paid about $160 for our business licence in North Vancouver. Several months later we moved to Vancouver ( just 5-6 km away from the N Van location), we started to pay about $800 for business licence fee. Same business, same model but $600 more. We are hoping the new Mayor will make the necessary changes to keep Vancouver vibrant, colourful with many, exciting local businesses ❤️. . . . votingmatters localbusiness localgovernment smallbusinessowner entrepreneurship cityofvancouver vancouver yvr madeinyvr supportlocalbusiness itsourcity politics politicsareimportant

Walk Against Drugs | October 20, 2018 | Mission Viejo | Orange County | . It’s really encouraging seeing so many people willing to get up early on a Saturday morning in support of solving the drug problem! . I’ve been going to this Walk since I was in elementary school, but the problem is only getting worse. The problem is getting more deadly for Orange County residents aged 45-65 in particular. We need to expand resources, implement new programs, and explore innovative methods for keeping our community safe for everyone.

B I R M I N G H A M [2/3] “Local political power is on the move in Birmingham. The creation of the West Midlands Combined Authority has seen the region elect its first mayor – and the base for the new political leader in town is in stark contrast to the Council House. About a mile away, over the ring road, across the canal and tucked away down a run-down side street called Summer Lane you come across the headquarters of the combined authority, seat of power for the mayor. It’s a bland concrete cube, no character, no statement, no presence, no tradition - more a maintenance nightmare than a municipal dream. The building was inherited from the former West Midlands Transport Authority, from which (in legal terms) the combined authority was born. Despite a facelift it lacks gravitas and status and, well, everything really. But does it matter? The Council House may be more visible, but the mayor has nearly 19,000 followers on Twitter (Birmingham’s leader has just 6,000) and a high public profile with endless photo-opps showing him out and about across the region, often in a hard hat and hi-vis jacket, telling a strong story of the Midlands on the move. So, does he really need a grand office to make a point about his authority?” • Chris West is a former council finance director, now an independent consultant. Town Hall is due for publication in November 2018, stay tuned. townhallbook summerlane westmidlandscombinedauthority birminghamcouncilhouse birmingham igersbirmingham thisisbrum bhamgram iseebirmingham

B I R M I N G H A M [1/3] “Birmingham Council House is the epitome of municipal power and heritage. Standing at the summit of sweeping steps in Victoria Square it looks down loftily over the city centre, exuding the tradition of strong local government and the heritage of Chamberlain. Home to the leader and lord mayor, the occupants of Birmingham Council House run the largest local authority in the country, and it dominates the West Midlands region as a symbol of public administration. Birmingham has had its well-publicised troubles in recent years, with government intervention and monitoring, changes in leadership and recently its first all-out elections as part of governance reforms. But the building, if slightly faded from former glory, still shouts its status.” • Chris West is a former council finance director, now an independent consultant.

Los Angeles gets its water from the San Joaquin river delta, the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Hoover Dam, but all three sources are in decline. We need to be smart about the way we use water in LA, especially with less water available and more people coming to the city over time. I want to ensure that we use our water more efficiently than we have in the past, which includes using recycled water and rain water. If you’d like to see the Division 3 Central Basin Water District run with integrity, honesty, and service, vote for Servando Ornelas for Water Board on November 6th!

Fundraising for campaigns is a difficult process, but that doesn't mean it is permissible to take money from special interests, like groups conducting business with the city. I keep my campaign funds out of special interest groups to avoid corruption and outside influence when voting for important measures. If you want Montebello City Council run with honesty, rather than corruption and special interests at the forefront, vote Rosie Vasquez for Montebello City Council on November 6th! https://bit.ly/2q8Uf6R Rosie4Montebello Vote4Rosie vote4vasquez LocalGovernment montebellocitycouncil Montebello CityofMontebello

During yesterday's walking tour of Culver City, Courtney's and Kellie's classes got to visit the Culver City City Council and play the roles of concerned citizen, councilmembers, mayor, city clerk, and chief of police. They then walked next door to the police station where they sat in a squad car, asked officers some questions about law enforcement practices, and even saw the inside of the jail!

Blake from the_grind_hay_st cafe was just one of the business owners wanting to hear from Council about the East of Hay Street Area. “It was great to hear the discussion about what could be done in the short term. It’s so good that Council is already working to consider activating PMH and has approved $5/day Subi East parking to bring in foot traffic.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cr Derek Nash and I caught up with Blake today. He’s got great ideas to enliven the streetscape of his business and I shared with him the Subi Business Grants program and other economic development initiatives that the City of Subiaco is working to deliver. forSubiaco eastquarter subicafe cafeculture haystreet localgovernment solutions councillife

PROTECT IMMIGRANT FAMILIES: Speak up on the proposed “public charge” rule! . Our country is stronger when we invest in the nation’s health.However, through a proposed expansion of the “public charge” regulation, the Trump Administration wants to take away health care, housing, and food assistance from low-income immigrant families, including US citizen children. . The policy will harm millions by undermining access to essential health, nutrition, and shelter for immigrants and their families.The regulation would make immigrant families afraid to seek access to healthy food, health care, and housing. This fear would extend far beyond people who may be subject to the “public charge” test. It would harm entire communities as well as the infrastructure that serves all of us. . Three simple ways to make your voice heard and protect immigrant families: 1. Submit a public comment. Visit www.regulations.gov. 2. Get at least 3 others to submit comment. You can forward and use the link www.regulations.gov to encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to submit their own comments. 3. Share on social media. Make sure to use the hashtags ProtectFamilies and SpeakForHealth.

We aren't doomed, but we are helpless until we do something. Start making changes, doing research, communicating, and expressing gratitude. If you have Dominion energy you can go online and pay a little more a month to have a percentage of your energy be sourced from renewables. When you hear about your localgovernment making positive choices on your behalf, send an email or letter saying thank you, you're doing us right! When you see something wrong that could be better, find out how you can put a word in to make that change or do it yourself. Build our community 🎃🌏☀️
