Councilmember Bonin's Petition to FAA re:  SMO
If you are concerned about the harmful impact Santa Monica Airport has on your neighborhood, your time to act is now.

Councilmember Bonin has posted a petition to the Federal Aviation Administration:

Be a Hero to Our Homeless Heroes
"Homes for Heroes" is a program to engage our landlord community to rent to our veterans. The resource we are using to house our veterans is called the Veterans Assistance for Supportive Housing or VASH.VASH provide homeless veterans with a long-term rental subsidy and supportive services so that the veteran retains and succeeds in housing. The City has over 1,000 VASH vouchers to house homeless veterans in 2015.

For information on how you can be a Hero for Heroes, please contact Ms. Tina Estedabadi of the United Way'sHomes for Heroes campaign at homesforheroes@unitedwayla.org or 213 808-6608.
