Happy Holidays from Eric, Amy and CD13

Thank you for an exciting year like no other before. Together...

We opened parks and more parks (and more parks), farmer's markets, affordable homes, and senior and community centers (and preserved what we had!); we improved our streets and made them safer; we beautified our communities and cut tagging in half.

We fought against cuts in services to the poor and for worker justice. We opened our eyes to the tragedy of homelessness and dedicated ourselves to ending it.

Our message of environmental concern travelled north, and our message of outreach and friendship travelled east. (And our message of everything else travelled into the blogosphere.)

With your support, I was able to take the oath of office for a second time, and I look forward to serving as your council president in 2006.

Peace to you and your family and a happy new year,

from Eric Garcetti & Amy Wakeland and the whole CD13 staff.
