As you know, more than 151,278 people are homeless in the State of California because elected officials have been missing in action on this issue for 20 years. Given all the work we have done to highlight the serious crisis on homelessness in Los Angeles, where since 2013, at least 5,700 people have died and more than 59,000 are homeless, this message to HUD Secretary Ben Carson is a testament to the hundreds of thousands of people who have called out the Mayor of Los Angeles and the Governor of California, as well as other City leaders, for failing to address the crisis. While the impeachment proceedings against the President has stalled out our effort to recall the Mayor of Los Angeles, I am proud to have been able to do everything I personally can to answer the call and raise awareness on this issue. 

Our Recall Committee will remain active, however, our current effort ends on February 6th and it is unlikely we will be submitting a petition to the City as we do not have the signature count needed to get a certified recall by February 6th. However, we will take this effort to the very last day to honor those who struggle to find help, especially our veterans, and we will keep exposing this crisis until it is resolved. The Mayor of Los Angeles has 17 months left in office, therefore, it is important we remain vigilant and demand for the new Mayoral Administration of Los Angeles to make the issue of homelessness a top priority with A PLAN. Anything else will not be acceptable. 

As for me, I will be submitting our committee reports to the City and will continue to comment on this issue and help build consensus where I can. Thank you to everyone who supports this effort by gathering signatures, giving voice and donating what you could. We did a lot with very little and are getting the federal help we so desperately need. Together we have shown saving the people of Los Angeles is a worthwhile effort. Los Angeles and the State of California is our home. A home worth having and a home worth saving.

The Governor of California admits "State no where to be found on the (expletive) issue of homelessness" for past 20 years. Worse in the past 10. FYI - In 2018, CA had 200 cities and counties declare a shelter space emergency. In L.A. more than 5,700 have died since 2013. (January 13, 2020 News Conference, Riverside, CA)

FPI: 500,000 Homeless in America is Proof Local Leaders Are Tone Deaf on Emergency Management

Alex talks about how partisan politics get in the way of solving real problems and how Democrats are damaging their own cities because of it. Los Angeles is the main case in point. An evolving pattern of failed management at the top is to blame for the homeless crisis and drug epidemic. A scam for homeless housing with tax payer dollars exposes Proposition HHH as a bait and switch on the people, unlike any in the history of the City of Los Angeles. A contrast between former Mayor Richard Riordan and the City of Los Angeles, shows glaring failures in emergency management with the current mayoral administration.

NBC4: EPA serves notice on Gov. Newsom. California has 30-days to come up with plan on homeless water pollution

By John Flesher
Published Sep 26, 2019 at 2:17 PM

Escalating its fight with California, the Trump administration accused the state Thursday of failing to stop water pollution from such sources as human waste left on the pavement by the homeless in big cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco.

San Francisco's mayor disputed any connection between homeless people and water quality, and she and others accused President Donald Trump of using the Environmental Protection Agency to punish the heavily Democratic state.

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler outlined a series of alleged deficiencies in California's compliance with federal clean water laws in a letter to Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom and demanded a detailed plan for fixing the problems within 30 days.

"If California does not step up to its delegated responsibilities, then EPA will be forced to take action," Wheeler said in statement.

The letter was the latest salvo in a feud between the administration and California, which has filed more than 50 lawsuits opposing Trump initiatives on the environment, immigration and health care.

Last week, Trump warned that San Francisco would receive a violation notice for allegedly letting needles and other waste go through storm drains into the Pacific Ocean, an allegation Mayor London Breed denied.

"I'm sick of this president taking swipes at our city for no reason other than politics," Breed said Thursday. "There are no needles washing out to the Bay or ocean from our sewer system, and there is no relationship between homelessness and water quality in San Francisco. It's just not a real issue."

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                        MEDIA CONTACT: (213) 446-2980


LOS ANGELES, California, September 11, 2019 – The Committee to Recall Mayor Eric Garcetti has re-started the clock to Recall the Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti in order to give him an opportunity to provide a truthful answer to the Citizens of Los Angeles.

The reasons for the Committee’s decision to re-serve the Mayor with the exact same notice cleared by the Clerk’s Office on June 28th, is the Mayor’s initial response to his recall was proven to be a lie! The Mayor's answer accused the Committee of having a "fraudulent" and"misleading" petition, however the Committee used numbers and statements in our petition from the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), the agency Garcetti oversees! The audit on LAHSA released by the Controller last week revealed, the Mayor used exaggerated numbers when stating Los Angeles housed 21,000 people last year. In the meantime, at the end of August 2019 more 4,278 homeless deaths have been reported since 2014.

            On Wednesday August 28, 2019, Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin, released his audit on LAHSA’s violations of its contract with the City of Los Angeles, stating the agency failed to meet seven of its nine goals. The audit also states the Mayor of Los Angeles used exaggerated numbers when saying “L.A. housed 21,000 people in the past year.” The Mayor also used these same exaggerated numbers in his answer to the first recall notice, which is now proven to be a lie!

            The Committee to Recall Mayor Eric Garcetti was told by the Los Angeles City Clerk’s Office, if we were to be cleared for circulation, we were required to add the Mayor’s, now proven to be false and exaggerated statement, to the bottom of our first petition. The Committee to Recall Mayor Eric Garcetti believes this to be a response we could not accept! The citizens of Los Angeles deserve a truthful answer from our Mayor! Therefore, we are re-serving the Mayor with a second Notice of Intent to Recall, to give him a chance to answer truthfully.

The Committee has sent a formal request to both the Los Angeles City Clerk’s Office and the City of Los Angeles Ethics Commission and is cleared to re-serve the Mayor with a new Notice of Intent to Recall, which was served on September 11, 2019, received and filed by the City Clerk’s Office.
