What do Ray Charles, Kenny G., and Stevie Wonder have in common? They’ve all performed with Ellis Hall, the multitalented musician who is headlining a benefit concert on October 28 at 6pm, at Pandora on Green in Pasadena. This “Ambassador of Soul,” as he is known by fans, will perform as part of An Evening for the Station as the star performer in Muse/ique, the counter conventional orchestra which will be presenting a Motown/Mashup to raise

funds for a good cause. All proceeds from the 14th annual An Evening for the Station will support Union Station Homeless Services, the San Gabriel Valley’s largest and most comprehensive social service agency assisting homeless men, women and children. Maestra Rachael Worby is the visionary force behind Muse/ique, a deconstructed orchestra made up of virtuoso musicians, artists, creators, and stellar guests the likes of Flea, Patti Austin,

Charlie Haden, Arturo Sandoval, Angela Bassett, and many more. “Union Station makes this city a better place,” says Rachael Worby. “They raise up the dignity and humanity of our community as a whole. As an orchestra founded on the idea of deriving inspiration and imagination from an enlivened civic landscape, we are deeply moved and inspired by their mission. It is an honor to partner with them for this event.” Worby promises that headlining musician Ellis Hall will deliver a performance to remember. Recognized early as a child prodigy, Hall has had to overcome many challenges to hone his craft. He battled complete blindness to master the bass, guitar, keyboards, and drums.

Monterey Park bank robbed Wednesday A new California Appellate case just published August 8, 2013, “Glaski v. Bank of America”, holds that a homeowner can challenge his lender’s right to foreclose by showing that the Deed of Trust never made it into the securitized trust until after the trust’s closing date. This is the case in most loans made in the last 12 years. If the bank foreclosed we should be able to get the homeowner money damages and/or the house back. Or a lawsuit could be filed and a court ruling obtained preventing the court from foreclosing. Recently enacted Sections 2924(a)(6) and 2924.19 of California Civil Code provide the same relief to homeowners. It is highly suggested that homeowners take this window of opportunity to get relief before the banks get Congress to close this door with national legislation. Contact us so we can help you.

A man wearing a black cap robbed a local bank Wednesday, according to police reports. Just before closing, Chase Bank, 459 S. Atlantic Blvd. was robbed of an undisclosed amount.

Police said a man entered the bank, demanded money and also made verbal threats. The suspect is described as a black man in his mid 20s with a thin build and about 6 feet tall. He wore a

black cap, black pants and a white long-sleeved T-shirt. Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Monterey Park Police Department at 626-5731311.

Robert Castro named Glendale Police Chief At the Tuesday, October 22, 2013 Glendale City Council meeting, City Manager Scott Ochoa introduced Robert Castro as the 12th Police Chief for the City of Glendale. Robert Castro is currently the Chief of Police for the city of Glendora, a position he has held for the past three years. Chief Castro began his law enforcement career working for the City of Glendora as a police cadet in 1985. He was hired as a police officer in 1986 and worked his way up through the ranks to Chief of Police. Chief Castro attended Azusa Pacific University obtaining a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Business Management. He is a Graduate of the POST Command College and the West Point Law Enforcement Leadership Program. He holds a POST Executive Certificate and is a member of the California Police Chiefs’ Association and the International Association of Police Chiefs. As the Police Chief of Glendora, Castro transformed the police department into a highly effective and efficient organization, an evolution hastened by the Great Recession. Difficult financial conditions resulted in a 20% personnel reduction in Glendora PD, however, Chief Castro was able to use the financial crisis as an opportunity to innovate. He implemented Focus-Based Continuous Improvement Policing and District Policing programs which included the use of innovative technologies. His management philosophy is predicated on exceptional customer service, valuesbased management, and continuous performance improvement. Chief Castro is very active in regional policing efforts in the San Gabriel Valley as a means of delivering quality, costefficient service. Through his leadership, Glendora maintains a strong regional profile in diverse areas such as helicopter/air support, Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), jailing services, and public safety radio systems. Castro has managed the Office of Traffic Safety Traffic DUI and Traffic Safety Grant for all of Los Angeles County for the past five years. His Focus-Based Policing program resulted in injury traffic collisions declining

5% each year. He has been very successful in obtaining grant funds to implement many of the programs and technologies used to meet the contemporary challenges of public safety. His community involvement includes being a member of Kiwanis, PTA, Chamber of Commerce, and numerous community committees in the city of Glendora. “Glendale is truly an incredible community which is diverse, proud, and has wonderful involvement and support. I am honored to have the opportunity to bring my experiences and ideas to this dynamic community, organization, and management team.” said Chief Castro. “I believe by working with and listening closely to employees, community members, and city leaders we can improve the quality of life for all who live, work, and visit Glendale. I am very excited to replicate many of the successful processes I have used during my career here in Glendale.” City Manager Scott Ochoa heralded Castro’s arrival in Glendale by saying, “Chief Rob Castro will capitalize on the significant gains made by Glendale PD over the recent years. Building on the successes and expectations established during Chief Ron De Pompa’s administration, I am very confident that Chief Castro will sustain our positive momentum. He understands and appreciates our organization’s values, he is an innovative leader, and he appreciates and respects the role of community support in maintaining Glendale as a very special – and safe – place.” Chief Castro is expected to take over as the Chief of Police on Monday December 16, 2013. Chief Castro, 48 years, and his wife, Cynthia, an elementary school teacher, have two sons, Nicholas, 16, and Robbie, 18. He and his family enjoy fitness activities, such as running and mountain bike riding.

State Sen. Carol Liu takes a serious look at poverty in schools State Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge) recently visited Madison Elementary School in Pasadena as part of her “Pathways to Partnership: Community Schools Strategy in Action” tour, an office spokesman said. Liu came to Pasadena to support student success and strengthen families and discuss Pasadena area initiatives, such as the City/School/Community Workplan and the district’s Healthy Start centers. Liu said the bus tour is designed to help families throughout the state. “It looks at poverty in California,” said Liu, who is chair of the Senate Education Committee. “This year we’re looking at how we can assist children in need in communities and schools up and down the state.” Liu added it is important that the city of Pasadena and the Pasadena Unified School District collaborate on these initiatives. “That’s a partnership between the city and school

By Shel Segal district to see how they can work together to help these students,” she said. “It’s a three-year program to see how they can better help the students and families. They teach parents to be better advocates for their kids and how to access services if they need services.” The City/School/ Community Workplan is a framework for building the commitment for stakeholders to work together cooperatively in order to improve student outcomes, support the local economy and to ensure the community grows as a local and global center of innovation. Using research, models and previous school, city and community planning efforts, a draft framework and set of existing and proposed strategies was jointly approved by the Pasadena Unified Board of Education and Pasadena City Council last February. PUSD’s Healthy Start program operates at five school sites: Madison Elementary School,

Prudential

Cleveland Elementary School, Jackson Elementary School, Eliot Middle School and Rose City High School. The sites provide students and families with case management services and a multitude of resources including health and mental health services, classes for parents, assistance for basic needs, and academic services for students. The Madison Healthy Start Center was recently completed under Measure TT, a $350 million school bond initiative passed by area voters in 2008. The centerpieces of the new facility are preschool classrooms that serve 35 to 40 students each year. Also part of the facility are rooms for health education, parent education, social services referrals and other services. The center is staffed by a Healthy Start coordinator and caseworkers as well as dedicated parent volunteers. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com).

CAL FIRE Cares

Pink ribbons battle against cancer Like millions of Americans, firefighters and their families are affected by cancer every year. For the next week, CAL FIRE is joining fire and police departments across the nation to show their support for the battle against cancer by wearing special CAL FIRE shirts with pink ribbons on them. Raising awareness and money for cancer research, CAL FIRE’s 2013 “Cares Enough to Wear

Each of these artists was selected by a committee of community stakeholders in 2007, after a competitive process. They all provide a very interesting resume of

accomplishments. All have won awards and had works exhibited in major exhibitions; three are professors of art; one was responsible for the newest memorial art

Pink" campaign runs October 20 - 26 and is part of October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when wearing pink signifies support for breast cancer research. Proceeds from the Tshirt sales generated by CAL FIRE employee's voluntary participation are donated to cancer research related non-profit organizations. CAL FIRE is one of

the largest fire departments in the nation and the over 7,000 men and women of the department have an opportunity to make a significant contribution to this worthwhile effort by voluntarily joining in on the "Cares Enough to Wear Pink" campaign. CAL FIRE is proud to help raise funds to find a cure and send a strong message of hope to those suffering from this disease.

Paradise Point Resort & Spa By Greg Aragon Paradise comes in many forms. I recently found it on a tiny, secluded island in San Diego’s majestic Mission Bay. Here, surrounded by lush gardens, duck-filled lagoons and beach-front bungalows, I discovered Paradise Point Resort & Spa. Covering 44 acres, the resort is a tropical rain forestlike oasis, boasting an awardwinning seafood restaurant, a full-service spa and 430 guestrooms, set in classic Californian-styled bungalows with individual parking spaces and lots of privacy. The bungalow that me and a friend stayed in sits on a grassy bluff, overlooking romantic Paradise Cove, about 30 yards from the water and close enough to hear passing boat sails flap in the wind while lying in bed. The room is highlighted by modern décor, with king size bed, sofa bed, office desk with wireless internet, push button fire place, large Jacuzzi tub, and a 20-ft wall of glass, looking over the water

and a lanai, with table and chairs. Near the lanai we had our own fire pit in the sand, which comes with the room. When not relaxing on the lanai we explored the resort. Our first discovery’s was the waterfront Barefoot Bar and Grill, where we enjoyed a lunch of crispy calimari and a delicious Barefoot Burger. After lunch, we walked along the resort’s mile-long, white sand beach, watching sailboats and kayakers drift past. We then went swimming in the main pool, which also features a sandy beach. My next adventure took me to The Spa at Paradise Point’s, which was recently voted a top 100 U.S. resort spa by Condé Nast Traveler. Located beneath a canopy of floppy trees, the sanctuary offers exotic rituals from islands around the world with a local San Diego flare. For my treatment, I indulged in the Spa’s unique new “Island Origins,” an incredible, two-hour revitalization of body and soul. This soothing journey begins with a guided botanical tour of the resort’s tropical grounds, which hold hundreds of types of exotic foliage from

more than 20 countries around the world. During the walk, my expert massage therapist/guide pointed out many different types of plants and told me of their natural therapeutic properties and how they are used in products like oils and exfoliants. After the tour, I laid down in a treatment room and experienced a wonderful 50-minute massage, foot scrub, and scalp treatment, which utilized four of the island’s most powerful plants – ginger, hibiscus, tea tree and eucalyptus – in their end form. The 7,050-sq-ft spa also features 8 treatment rooms, including a couple’s bungalow, a private garden courtyard and whirlpool, fitness studio, and a 900-sq-ft salon for manicure and pedicure services. For dinner we strolled along the sand to the resort’s elegant Baleen Restaurant, hidden behind swaying palm trees and tiki torches. Baleen’s menu is an artful blend of San Diego seafood and land cuisine infused with regional flavor. Add to this an extensive list of fine wines and you have a great dining

experience. Our meal began on the patio, with a half-dozen fresh oysters, with mignonette, cocktail sauce and lemon; and roasted diver scallops on a wooden plank, with crushed marble potato salad, grapefruit and caviar butter. For the main course I dove into Baleen Seafood Cioppino. Packed with tender local fish, shrimp, clams and mussells, roasted red pepper broth and harissa aioli, this Cioppino rates with the best I’ve ever had. My

friend went with the Northern Halibut, with soft polenta, savoy spinach, cherry tomato, pickled red onion and basil pistou. While dining, we sipped California wine and watched boats sail by and lights twinkle off the bay. Back at our bungalow, we opened a bottle of wine, threw some wood in the fire pit and roasted smores beneath the moonlight. Other resort amenities include a fitness center, five tennis courts, NBA basket-

ball court, five swimming pools, bicycle rentals, 35,000 sq-ft of meeting and event space and an 18-hole putting golf course. The place even has its own private, full-service marina, with sailing, jet skiing, motor boating, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding, Paradise Point Resort and Spa is located at 1404 Vacation Rd., San Diego.

Our licensed respiratory professionals (respiratory therapists and registered sleep techs) work with patients from the time of setup and throughout their therapy with one goal in mind…to ensure they quickly adapt to their therapy and stay compliant over time.

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

was carefully designed to achieve this. The first step of the program is for one of our licensed respiratory therapists to complete the setup faceto-face with the patient, either in their home or their doctor’s office, usually within 72 hours of approval. Our R/T will set the machine to the prescription and then educate the patient on its use, care and maintenance. And educate the patient on what to expect over the first days and weeks of their therapy. We set up all patients on the highest quality machines fitted with wireless modems (regardless of insurance). And we leave the modems on the machine indefinitely so as to be

After setup patients are passed to our patient care center for ongoing compliance care. Our licensed clinicians make outgoing calls at 72 hours, 30 days and 90 days after setup to interdict any problems patients may be having. A field R/T will make a re-visit to a patient in their home where a problem cannot be resolved over the phone.

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

Our goal is to have happy, compliant patients while taking the brunt of the every-day questions patients invariably have. This relieves the burden from our referring physician’s offices who otherwise have to deal with this call volume, and depending on the experience of the doctor in this field, may not be able to answer typical questions the patient has regarding equipment issues (e.g. how to fix a leaking mask).

Skeptical?

So you’ve heard it all before? All the DME’s brag that they’re the best and have a great compliance and supply replenishment program.... everybody talks the talk...so who do you believe? Your patients...that’s who! We’ll prove it to you. Send us two or three patients and then ask your patients about the care they received and their opinion of the process... then compare the results to your existing DME provider. Talk to your staff about the interaction they have with our office. Look at our documentation.

First 5 LA commends the Governor for signing bills supporting pregnant women and families with young children Babies, families with young children and pregnant women all scored a major victory when Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB 402 requiring all birthing hospitals to incorporate recommended breastfeeding practices and AB 290 which improves licensed child care facilities by requiring that nutritional training be integrated into current training received by directors and teachers of child care centers. “First 5 LA is extremely pleased with the governor’s support of these bills,” said Kim Belshé, executive director of First 5 LA, a child advocacy and grantmaking agency. “To achieve large scale and lasting change in the lives of youngsters, families and communities, we must have public policy change that will benefit children prenatal through age 5 throughout Los Angeles County.” SB 402, authored by Sen. Kevin De Leon (D-Los Angeles), has moved California closer to current policy and practice recommendations for maternity care. His bill requires all general acute care hospitals and special hospitals that have a perinatal unit to adopt specific steps for successful breastfeeding. Research shows breastfeeding benefits both mothers and their babies. It also provides a significant cost savings for the health care system and employers. Studies point out that

breastfeeding improves health outcomes by reducing children’s risks for acute infections and sudden infant death syndrome, as well as chronic diseases including asthma, diabetes and obesity. “What happens in the hospital or birth center plays a crucial role in establishing breastfeeding and helping mothers continue to breastfeed after leaving the facility,” said Belshé, whose agency earlier funded a multi-million dollar hospitalbased project to improve Los Angeles County’s low breastfeeding rates. “The new state policy is a huge step forward for breastfeeding and will help new mothers get the support they need from the start in order to reach their own breastfeeding goals.” The other legislation AB 290, authored by Assemblymember Luis Alejo (D-Salinas), relates to the Child Day Care Act and provides that for licenses, a director or teacher who receives the health and safety training shall also have at least one hour of childhood nutrition training as part of the preventive health practices. As one of its 10 public policy goals over the next five years, First 5 LA is encouraging expanded federal food programs with higher nutritional standards and better nutrition in child care settings. According to Belshé, childhood obesity is an epidemic with detrimental health consequences, as well

as serious economic costs, healthy eating and physical activity go hand in hand in an environmental approach to promote healthy childhood weight and early learning. The other nine policy goals are: • Increasing supports for breastfeeding • P r o m o t i n g comprehensive, affordable health insurance for all • P r o m o t i n g reductions in drug, alcohol and tobacco use by parents/ caregivers • Expanding access to, and improve quality of, early care and education programs • E x p a n d i n g voluntary home visiting • S u p p o r t i n g integration and sharing of data • Strengthening the prenatal to 5 workforce • Expanding early identification and intervention • Promoting family strengthening principles and prevention practices in the child welfare system “To advance these goals, First 5 LA incorporates a variety of tools such as public policy development, issue education, advocacy, public policy grant making and collaboration,” said Belshé. “We also collaborate with others dedicated to improving the lives of children in these important efforts.” For more information on First 5 LA’s policy agenda http://www. first5la.org/Policy-Advocacy .

Gang leader goes to prison Continued from page 1

by United States District Judge George H. Wu. Aguirre is one of the last defendants to be sentenced in relation to a 2009 racketeering indictment that charged 88 linked to the Avenues street gang in northeast Los Angeles (see: http:// www.justice.gov/usao/cac/ Pressroom/pr2009/115.html). The wide-ranging racketeering case alleged a host of crimes, including the August 2008 murder of Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Juan Escalante and the killings of several other victims. Most of the other defendants named in the indictment have previously been sentenced, receiving prison terms of up to 25 years. A co-defendant – Carlos Renterria, who admitted that he shot two rival gang members in the head at close range in an attempt to murder them, and that he plotted to murder a fellow Avenues gang member – also received a quarter-century prison term from Judge Wu earlier this month. According to court documents, including his plea agreement, Aguirre was authorized by the Mexican Mafia to control the activities of the Avenues street gang on the street. As the leader of the Avenues, Aguirre would regularly meet with members of the Mexican Mafia at California penal institutions, where he would receive instructions and authorizations for certain violent crimes,

and where he would relay information regarding the activities of the Avenues gang. Among other things, Aguirre was given the authority for designating individuals to collect extortionate “taxes” from drug dealers and others living and working in the area claimed by the Avenues gang. These “taxes” would then be funneled to the Mexican Mafia. As part of his role in the Avenues, Aguirre shot and killed a rival gang member in 1999. Aguirre was charged with that murder in state court, but the charges against him were dismissed based on pre-trial rulings in that case. Aguirre subsequently was charged with that murder as part of federal case brought under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (the federal RICO statute), and in July he pleaded guilty in the federal case, admitting that he fatally shot the victim in the Cyprus Park area of northeast Los Angeles. Aguirre also admitted that he authorized the 2008 murder of an Avenues member because he and others believed that man was skimming money that he collected as “taxes” on behalf of the Avenues gang and the Mexican Mafia. “No matter what steps criminal gangs like the Mexican Mafia and the Avenues use in attempts to control neighborhoods through in-

timidation and violence, we will ensure that the residents do not need to live their lives and raise their families in fear,” said United States Attorney André Birotte Jr. “I am proud that my office played an instrumental role in bringing justice to a predator responsible for two murders and overseeing a gang that caused so much harm to northeast Los Angeles.” The federal investigation into the Avenues gang that led to the RICO case was conducted by the Los Angeles HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) Task Force and the Los Angeles Police Department. The HIDTA group that conducted the investigation is made up of agents and officers from the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, IRS - Criminal Investigation, the Ontario Police Department, the Riverside Police Department, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. The federal investigation into the Avenues began after the August 2, 2008 murder of Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Juan Able Escalante, who was shot outside his Cypress Park home as he was getting ready to go to work at the Men’s Central Jail.

California students make slight gains in physical fitness SANTA ANA—California school kids made slight gains this year in two of the most important indicators of health and physical fitness, and held relatively steady overall, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today. About 1.34 million fifth, seventh, and ninth graders took the FITNESSGRAM® this year (Table 1), nearly 94 percent of students enrolled in those grades in public schools statewide. Students in grades five and seven improved in aerobic capacity and body composition, two of the six areas that are assessed annually and considered among the most important gauges of health. Students in grade nine showed improvement in aerobic capacity, but dipped a tenth of a percentage point in body composition (Table 2). Overall, about 26 percent of fifth graders, 32 percent of seventh graders and 37 percent of ninth graders

scored in the “Healthy Fitness Zone” for all six areas (Table 4). That reflects slight gains for grades five and seven since last year and no change for grade nine. “The simple fact is that healthy kids learn better,” Torlakson said. “I’m pleased to see the slow shift toward better health continue, but when only about a third of our students are physically fit, we are nowhere near the end of this effort. To help them succeed in school and in life, California’s young people need more access to physical activity, fresh, healthy food, and clean water.” Joining Torlakson at the announcement at John Muir Fundamental Elementary School were Orange County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Al Mijares, Dr. Marc Lerner, Medical Officer for the Orange County Department of Education, Santa Ana Unified School District trustee Dr. Audrey Yamagata-Noji and principal Donna Kertman. Torlakson, a longtime

teacher and cross-country coach, launched his Team California for Healthy Kids initiative shortly after taking office to further these goals. The initiative brings together educators, community leaders, athletes, and other celebrities to help schools offer healthy choices to students. The primary goal of FITNESSGRAM® is to assist students in establishing lifetime habits of regular physical activity. The FITNESSGRAM® is composed of the following six fitness areas, with a number of test options provided for most areas: aerobic capacity, body composition, abdominal strength, trunk extensor strength, upper body strength, and flexibility. The 2012–13 physical fitness results for schools, school districts, counties, and the state are available on the Physical Fitness Test Results page. For additional information about the Physical Fitness Test, please go to the California Department of Education Physical Fitness Test Web page.

Legislature to probe BART worker safety

Assembly Labor Committee to convene oversight hearing on latest BART worker fatalities Assemblymember Roger Hernández (D-West Covina) announced Thursday he will convene a hearing on November 7, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Auditorium of the State Building located at 455 Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco to investigate worker safety in the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART). Hernández serves as Chair of the Assembly Committee on Labor and Employment. On October 19, two maintenance workers were fatally struck by a BART train while performing a routine track inspection. Questions have been raised whether a BART procedure known as "simple approval" contributed to this tragedy, as well as a prior incident which took place in 2008 where a track inspector was also killed. BART was cited

by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) for the 2008 incident, but continues to challenge the citation in that case. "This recent incident raises significant concerns about workplace safety issues involving BART," stated Hernández. "I am troubled by allegations that a flawed BART procedure also contributed to a previous worker fatality and was not remedied in order to prevent this most recent tragedy. The safety of workers and the public cannot be compromised and I plan to get to the bottom of this," concluded Hernández. These and other workplace safety issues had been raised by BART workers and their union representatives during the recently-concluded labor dispute.

Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), who recently requested an oversight hearing on these safety issues said, "The recent, tragic fatalities are shocking, and unfortunately they highlight an alarming trend of safety problems at BART. At the Labor Committee hearing, we will demand accountability from BART leadership for these safety breaches, and examine what, if anything, they are doing to prevent future risk to workers and the public.” Various federal and state agencies, including the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and DOSH are currently conducting on-scene investigations into the most recent incident. The hearing will be timed to allow for completion of these onscene investigations.

The panel – consisting of Construction Authority CEO Habib Balian, Chief Project Officer Chris Burner, Station Environment Coordinator Tanya Patsaouras, and Public Art Program Manager Lesley Elwood – provided the attendees updates on the latest station design criteria, choices cities will have regarding sta-

tion colors and materials, the schedule for advanced conceptual engineering and station art development, and much more. A Locally Preferred Alternative was selected earlier this year by the Construction Authority board of directors, following environmental review and clearance of the project under the California Environmental Policy Act (CEQA). Since that time, the Construction Authority has developed the scope of work to advance the necessary design, engineering

and station art planning. The agency is set to begin the advanced conceptual engineering early next year. “We want the cities to understand what they can expect during this next phase of work for the project,” explained Balian. “We want them to start envisioning what their station could look like, as well as what they can be doing now to plant the seeds for future land development and connectivity to local points of interest from their future stations. It all starts now.”

Gatto's Town Hall draws standing room only crowd Nearly 100 local residents clambered into the Little White Chapel Social Room in Burbank on Saturday to participate in a Town Hall meeting hosted by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (DLos Angeles). Following a flag ceremony and pledge of allegiance by Burbank Cub Scout Pack 219, the diverse group of attendees, who ranged in age from teenagers to senior citizens, asked the Assemblyman questions about the community, legislation, and even a few on his personal interests and perspectives. Gatto answered more than twenty-five questions from the "standing room only" crowd during the hour-and-a-half event. “I believe in being as accessible as possible,” said Gatto. “Town-hall meetings provide an opportunity for community members to gather together, and speak directly with their elected representatives. They are a centuries-old tradition that is important to maintaining a healthy political discourse.” Topics at the event ranged from local issues such as utility rates and transportation infrastructure to national and international issues, such as reinstating the Glass-Steagall Act and

preventing the flight of the entertainment industry from Southern California. Assemblyman Gatto recently announced legislation to make the film-tax incentive more robust and help keep film and television production in California. “I recently spoke with a below-the-line worker who has been on-set in Louisiana for much of the past year,” said the Assemblyman. “He was very emotional, because he’s been separated from his family for so long. Bringing the film and television industry back to Southern California, where it belongs, is not only about having a strong economy; it is about making life easier for local families.” One of the most talkedabout topics of the afternoon was the series of “Anti-Hassle” legislation the Assemblyman has introduced, including opening up car-pool lanes on local freeways for those with non-traditional commutes, prohibiting local governments from ticketing vehicles parked at broken parking meters, and reforms to address frivolous lawsuits against local small-business owners. Gatto hopes to announce additional legislation in the next session to address

everyday hassles and headaches. “Some of the best ideas for legislation have come from people I speak to at events like this Town Hall,” said Gatto. “Government needs to do more to address the hassles it causes for regular citizens.” The event was not without some humor. As he explained that the Assembly is the lower house of the California Legislature, Assemblyman Gatto told an anecdote about chatting with someone at the airport who asked him, “What exactly do you assemble?” Last quarter, Gatto held his Town Hall online, to reach those who couldn't attend in person. Assemblyman Gatto is planning future town-hall meetings, both in person and online, in the coming months. Mike Gatto is the Chairman of the Appropriations Committee in the California State Assembly. He represents Burbank, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Montrose, and the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Atwater Village, East Hollywood, Franklin Hills, Hollywood Hills, Los Feliz, and Silver Lake. www.asm. ca.gov/gatto
