Who is responsible for Downtown's Art Walk, CD 9 or CD 14?
The tragic death of nearly two-month old Marcelo Vasquez of Montebello Thursday night during Art Walk festivities in Downtown LA, has evoked a avalanche of comments addressing concerns
in the LA Weekly about public oversight of downtown's latest fad.
This email was send to us here at Mayor Sam which we cut and pasted below, addressing leadership and oversight issues pertaining to Art Walk and Downtown LA as a whole.
Dear Mayor Sam, I think a blog about Spring Street and complete lack of Council leadership in the historic district would be very timely.
The issue is going to come to a head with the death of a 2 month old boy during Art Walk last night.
As you know downtown is carved up worse than one of those free turkeys Huizar has consultants giving away at Thanksgiving time. Even the Art Walk is divided down the middle between by CD9 and CD14.
Art walk has been completely out of control for sometime, but there appears to be no leadership from either Council Office. I would like to see downtown unified with this next City redistricting. I'm thinking anybody, but Sleazar. CD9 would be better, but I'm even thinking about a new CD1 that would cut over to Eaglerock.
Anyway, this tragic incident is symbolic of a much larger problem. I hope you agree
A argument can definitely be made for Downtown LA being place in "one" councilmatic district.
