Are you unhappy with your council member? Instead of just complaining, some frustrated residents are taking action: launching a recall.
On Tuesday, District 14 Councilman Kevin de Leon was served with a recall notice, one of the first steps in trying to oust an elected city official. De Leon, whose district stretches from Eagle Rock to Boyle Heights, is the latest City Council member to be targeted by constituents upset over their response to the city's homelessness crisis. Two other council members -- including Nithya Raman of Silver Lake -- also face recalls.
But recall organizers face an uphill battle. They need signatures from at least 15% of voters -- more than 20,000 in the case of District 14 -- to even put the recall on a ballot.
The Boathouse Bistro
What better place to set up a cafe but in a charming boathouse -- complete with lighthouse, red-tiled roof and dock -- next to a picturesque lake? That's what many have thought about the Echo Park Lake Boathouse. But the last outfit to run a restaurant at the boathouse closed up late last year amid the pandemic. Now, a new operator -- a local restaurant owner -- had stepped up to reopen the lakeside cafe, which will be called The Boathouse Bistro.
