"Save the Peak" celebration Dec 9

Per an email blast from the Trust for Public Land, we are all invited:
Earlier this year, you all helped us save Cahuenga Peak, and now it's time to party! Join Councilmember Tom LaBonge and The Trust for Public Land at:

The Save the Peak Community Celebration
Thursday, December 9
3 p.m. until sunset
Lake Hollywood Park
3204 Canyon Lake Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90068

Eat Pink's Hot Dogs, dance to music from Martel Fuller, and enjoy the view.  For more information, contact
Everyone interested who doesn't actually work for a living during normal business hours should go. While you are there, make sure you ask LaBonge - UCLA's Local Legislator of the Year -  to explain how 138 acres of land offered to the City not too terribly long ago for $1.6 million ended up costing $12.5 million on his watch.

While you are at it, you could ask him if he feels he has a conflict of interest being both the President of the Sister Cities of Los Angeles, Inc and the CD 4 councilmember who funds Sister Cities programs in Los Angeles with public funds, too.

Just wonderin'.
