"Broken Streets, and Broken Promises"

Los Angeles City workers and community-based organizations fighting for the restoration of services has ratcheted up their campaign. As seen in this photo taken at a City Hall action last week, AFSCME Local 2626 members (wearing green, at left) admire a banner produced by the Fix LA Coalition.

The message speaks to Mayor Garcetti's pledge, still far from fulfilled, to create 5,000 good civil service jobs. The June 30, 2018 deadline for that to happen has come and gone.

About 300 City workers and supporters packed the City Council meeting on September 21st, to demand once and for all that the broken streets be fixed, the sidewalks be repaired, the 311 information lines be properly staffed, and that parks and recreational programming no longer be sacrificed.
