From Councilman Bonin:

Today is my first day on the job, and I’m not going to City Hall.

I officially became your new Councilmember at midnight last night. I want to start out on the right note- by serving you, in our neighborhoods, and by getting things done.

So, today, I’m not going downtown to my new office. I’m going to be in my district – filling potholes, cleaning up our streets, and checking-in on our local parks, playgrounds, and libraries. I will be visiting with seniors and meeting with some of our local cops, firefighters, and small business owners who create jobs.

This is how I intend to do things as your Councilmember. Hands-on – and in the neighborhood. That’s where I find the fresh ideas and the new energy to strengthen our neighborhoods and make our city work better. I want to take those ideas and run with them.

To do that, I need to set a new standard for accessibility by staying close to our neighborhoods. I don’t expect you to trek to City Hall; I intend to bring City Hall to you. Over the next few months, I will implement my “Access 11” plan to make sure we connect, share ideas, and spend some time together.

In the meantime, I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you, represent this district, and help lead the city. Together, we can move Los Angeles forward, do good, and get things done.

Please let me and my staff know how we can be of service. You can reach me by email at mike.bonin@lacity.org, at my office at 213-473-7011, or on social media at my Facebook and Twitter pages.
