Dear Friends,
I would like to address recent events. Over the course of the last few weeks, the Fifth Council District has become victim to gang-related violence, excessive house parties, and dangerous drag racing street takeovers. From the beginning, I have made clear my position of zero tolerance for this type of criminal behavior and I have asked for full enforcement by LAPD with prosecutions from the City Attorney. Last night’s house party on Mulholland Drive, which resulted in three individuals being injured and one fatality, adds to the immediacy of our need to restore public safety. There is no room for criminal behavior in our neighborhoods or on our streets. This isn’t politics, people are dying. Neighborhoods are scared. We cannot wait another minute longer.

Statement from U.S. Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham:
Delivering a Complete and Accurate 2020 Census Count
The U.S. Census Bureau continues to evaluate its operational plans to collect and process 2020 Census data. We are announcing updates to our plan that will include enumerator awards and the hiring of more employees to accelerate the completion of data collection and apportionment counts by our statutory deadline of December 31, 2020, as required by law and directed by the Secretary of Commerce. The Census Bureau’s new plan reflects our continued commitment to conduct a complete count, provide accurate apportionment data, and protect the health and safety of the public and our workforce.
