Today’s Eastside Scene: Angeleno Heights | Katrina Alexy

Morning Report

  • Only 14% of eligible voters participated in last week’s 34th Congressional District election. Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, who won 25.36% of the vote, will face attorney Robert Ahn, who came in second with 22.25% of the vote, in a June 6 runoff. The 34th Congressional District  includes Boyle Heights, City Terrace, El Sereno, Lincoln Heights, Montecito Heights, Northeast L.A., southern Echo Park and other communities.  KPCC
  • LADWP claims the water coming out of the tap is as good if not better than bottled water that costs significantly more. The agency is preparing a second ultraviolet disinfection plant to remove microscopic impurities  without chlorine and other chemicals. ABC7

  1. Why vote when you can just act like a baby and shut down a freeway instead?

    • Quoting Chris Christie doesn’t really help further your point

      • Don’t need to quote anybody to recognize possibly the dumbest act civil disobedience that does not further anyones cause or garner any sympathy. Not to say acts of civil protest aren’t warranted or effective, they just need to be directed at the actual perpetrators in an effective peaceful manner. Seeing you jump to insult anyone with an opinion it appears you might be part of the safety pin crowd that becomes unhinged at the slightest indication your participation trophy is being taken away. The “Instagram Me” generation only wants to belong rather than doing the reading on issues and then execute the subsequent voting.

  2. LADWP may be right about purity of our water, but it tastes nasty! ZeroWater cartridge/pitcher method makes it taste very good.
