A Gracious Moment

Paul Krekorian did a brilliant and gracious thing at his inauguration on Sunday. After speeches from local and statewide political heavyweights ranging from Mayor Villaraigosa to Assembly Leader Karen Bass, Paul had 3 local community activists (John Walker, Judy Price, and Abby Diamond) speak immediately prior to his swearing in. It was a nod of thanks for the efforts of the many and a welcome indicator of the Councilmember's priorities. Here is the segment with Abby Diamond speaking. The introduction is by the event emcee, Christina Gonzalez of Fox 11 news (and an active CD2 resident). Video footage by yours truly.
