Three Courageous Members of the Board of Supervisors Vote to Restore the Cross
On Tuesday, January 7, 2014, three courageous members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to put the cross back on the County Seal. Supervisors Mike Antonovich and Don Knabe had been the two dissenting votes when the motion was passed to remove it, despite the appeals of several religious leaders, including our own Bishop Ulmer, in 2004. However, last week, thanks to Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, who cast the third and deciding vote, the cross will now be restored. In response to a threat of lawsuits by an ACLU representative, “Ridley-Thomas dismissed concerns about a potential court battle, saying the county has bigger problems...‘The mission is a part of the seal. There's no controversy about that, and I think this is much ado about constitutional wrangling,’ Ridley-Thomas said. ‘The seal will take care of itself.’” (Sewell, Abby and Mehta, Seema. Los Angeles Times, January 7, 2014.)
If you would like to express your appreciation to these three members of the Board for this courageous act, you may do so by e-mailing or calling them as follows:
Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, District 2
Supervisor Don Knabe, District 4
Supervisor Mike Antonovich District 5
It was truly a pleasure interacting with so many of you during my five town hall meetings (pictured below) throughout the district over the past six weeks. In these meetings, we discussed the budgetary battles before us in Congress, strengthening and preserving Medicare and Social Security for future generations, and other issues that were affecting you, your family and community. During each meeting, there was also a panel of experts on hand to discuss the progress and challenges associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare.
It is extremely important to me to hear the thoughts and concerns of my constituents within California's 43rd District. That was my sole purpose in holding the town hall meetings and I appreciate all who came. In most of them, we had a standing room only crowd and everyone, as far as I know, who wanted to speak, got the opportunity to do so.
As your representative in Congress, my door is always open. If you ever need anything please do not hesitate to call my District office at (323) 757-8900 or visit my website at http://email.capitolenews.com/q/mueretN2og85dNuDwbSu-GCFYhPrQnPNjkd8Au8HYDxMKDAGNfJU6VGdb.
