  1. RE: A neighborhood council possibly discussing gentrification issues — reminded me of a City Council candidate who visited our community 10+ years ago while courting votes. The discussion went something like this:

    CANDIDATE: “We need to work on ‘gentrifying’ your community to attract people to it.”

    LOCAL RESIDENT: “Then where would all the people who live here now go to find homes?”

    CANDIDATE: (no answer)

    The same candidate then went on to become the Mayor of L.A. for two terms . . .
