- Call it a Gil-I-Buster: A Highland Park meeting on proposed Figueroa Street bike lanes drew numerous complaints about the format of the gathering, which prevented the public from expressing opinions and featured a lengthy presentation and talk by Councilman Gil Cedillo, according to EGP News. One of the persons who walked out of the June 12 told EGP News that audience members “were unhappy Cedillo chose to ‘filibuster’ the meeting rather than listen to their feedback.”
