CD1 Candidates Answer Questions About Trash, Gangs

Two issues noted as major concerns for community members were addressed by the candidates last night.

The four candidates vying for the Council District 1 seat in March's city-wide elections answered community questions for more than an hour on Monday evening at the Carlin G. Recreation Center in Mount Washington.

The candidates were quizzed on both their knowledge of hyper-local issues, including the Mount Washington-Glassell Park specific plan, and regional concerns, such as how they would support the revitalization of the L.A. River.

They were also asked to address two issues that were bought up by Patch readers both in our comments section and on our Facebook page: illegal dumping and gang crime.

In the above video, candidates José Gardea, Gil Cedillo, Jesse Rosas and William Rodriguez Morrison provide their answers to those questions.

This was a really boring meeting. Gil Cedillo took an hour just to talk about his endorsements (boring, who cares), Jose talked about what he would do (why didn't he do those things while 12 years working for Councilmember Ed Reyes?). Only 2 candidates that are community activist are William and Jesse Rosas. Jesse Rosas lives in the community and knows the issues. Don't vote for old government re-runs that work for do nothing Reyes or Cedillo. Don't vote for those that just moved into the district, Jose and Gil Cedillo. Vote for those that live and know the district. And, that is Jesse Rojas.
