Small Business Workshop presented by Mike Bonin’s Office

Bonin bannerSmall companies usually operate on a shoestring marketing budget. They do not have the luxury of hiring professional expertise or purchasing big ads in popular magazines. For this reason, their marketing efforts must be very focused and disciplined to gain the greatest benefit. This presentation, by Lori Williams, will provide an overview of marketing techniques geared towards small companies with limited budgets. This will include social media, personal selling, strategic partnerships and traditional marketing methods.

FREE event sponsored by District 11 and SBDC.

Westside Crime Alert

LAPD Senior Lead Officer Maria Gray has sent us this timely message:

Not necessarily a crime trend in the Brentwood area (yet), but since it has already affected all of the surrounding areas, I thought it wise to share with you the recent upward trend in stolen Mercedes car parts, particularly, side view mirrors and grills.  While these thefts also affect BMWs, Lexuses, and even Priuses (sp?), the Mercedes Benz vehicles have been particularly targeted as of late.  Recently, security camera footage caught grainy images of suspects stealing parts off of a Mercedes vehicle parked on the street in the Westwood area and the entire incident took only a minute or two at the most.

If you or your friends, family, neighbors have a Mercedes vehicle, particularly if it’s traditionally parked on the street or driveway, please share this information with them so extra precautions can be taken.

Be extra mindful of car alarms going off in the middle of the night.  Also, if in the middle of the night, you see a car idling nearby or even parallel to a parked Mercedes while others are standing or loitering next to it, be a good witness and call the police.  Maybe consider turning on the lights.  If it’s your neighbor’s car, you hopefully already have their contact information and can give them a call to alert them.  Please use good common sense when considering confronting anyone.  Better to be a good witness.

Good news regarding the commercial burglary series we had.  The outstanding suspect is now in custody thanks to our hard working officers and detectives.  In addition to this outstanding arrest is the recent arrest of a prolific car burglar who has been linked to dozens of car break-ins throughout the area.  A couple more bad guys off the streets thanks to the diligence of West LA officers!

Thank you and be well!!

Message from City Attorney, Mike Feuer

This week my office made three important announcements about how we’re taking action to improve public safety and the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

Keeping Faith With The Voters-Enforcing Prop D-Medical Marijuana Restrictions
The same day I was elected City Attorney in 2013, the voters overwhelmingly passed Proposition D to regulate L.A.’s medical marijuana dispensaries. I believe the voters sought to strike a balance with which I agree: on the one hand, making access to medical marijuana available for those who truly need it to alleviate their suffering; on the other, diminishing the number of dispensaries that then existed, eliminating those, for example that are too close to sensitive sites such as schools, parks and houses of worship.

I am proud that this week we announced a significant milestone in our effort to uphold the will of the voters: More than 500 unlawful medical marijuana shops in Los Angeles have closed since I took office. This outcome is the result of a close-knit partnership including our office, the LAPD, neighborhood councils and other community organizations.
Of course, we still have more to do. If you know of an unlawful medical marijuana business in your neighborhood let us know by e-mailing us at atty.medicalmarijuana@lacity.org.

Keeping Tobacco Away From Kids
A key to protecting our children and keeping neighborhoods safe is keeping cigarettes out of the hands of minors, who purchase an astonishing 45 million packs a year in California. This week we launched the City Attorney’s Responsible Retailer Initiative–in collaboration with parents, public health officials and retailers including Ralphs’ and Food4Less–to raise awareness and provide education about preventing tobacco sales to youth. We’ll couple this outreach with aggressive enforcement if sales to kids persist.

This Initiative is made possible through a unique $175,000 grant to the County Department of Public Health from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It goes hand-in-hand with our Neighborhood School Safety Program, which collaborates with key stakeholders to enhance the health and safety of our youth.

Tackling The Often Lethal Combination Of Gangs, Guns And Drugs
My office is making a sustained effort to target problem properties across Los Angeles that are the sources of crime and violence. Yesterday I announced that my office filed a narcotics abatement lawsuit against the owners and operators of an alleged gang controlled apartment complex across the street from Locke High School. The property is known as a haven for illegal drugs and guns. My office also filed suit against the owners of a nearby gang-controlled single family home.

These actions are the latest in our effort to clean up properties that are magnets for crime, including four recent abatement lawsuits filed against properties in Hollywood, South Los Angeles, Venice and Del Rey. Properties that draw gangs, drugs and guns create a potentially lethal combination and corrode our neighborhoods–especially when they are located across the street from a school. No family should have to put up with these conditions, and my office will continue to do everything we can to transform properties like these.

Best regards,

MICHAEL N. FEUER
