Get Ready for the Big One!!

Senator Jenny Oropeza Passes Away

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Senator Jenny Oropeza died last evening at Memorial Medical Center.

My partner, Flo, and I have known Jenny since she first ran for office -- we held a fundraiser in our home.

Our prayers go out to her husband, Tom, and to her family.

Need Your Help for Holiday Events

Dear Readers,

Due to our budget cuts, the City is unable to put those wooden triangles with Christmas lights (that look like trees on the water) in any of our local parks.

Also, our annual tree lighting, santa claus and outdoor movies have also been cancelled due to to lack of funding.

So I need your help:
  • We can restore the "christmas lights" at Heartwell Park and at the duck pond in El Dorado Park at Willow if we can raise $576.00 for each tree/set of lights. We need at least 3 for each location for a grand cost of: $1728 x 2 locations= $2456. Contributions can be sent to Partner of Parks,  2760 N. Studebaker Road, Long Beach , CA 90815
  • We have a living Christmas tree at Good Neighbor Park which local children are decorating the first week of December. I would like to host a holiday/tree lighting/Christmas carols on Sunday, December 12 at 6pm -- and again need help organizing this event and am inviting any school or church choir that would like to come and lead christmas carols to contact my office at: 562 570-6932.
