isn’t another niche LA thing. If this imbecile gets chosen to be Transpo or HUD Sec, he’s going to do to the entire nation what he did to LA. You’ve heard about our unhoused population skyrocketing. Y’all know our traffic and transit blow. Tell no thanks.

As 120,00 families in LA are at risk of becoming homeless, Mayor Garcetti has ignored repeated calls for rent relief and eviction protections. He has always put developer profits over the needs of constituents. Do not pick him for HUD.

Thankful for who won’t allow to smile his way out of LA. Policing ( deadliest in US) + Housing (40k+ unhoused in LA City alone) + COVID “response” (Protects capital at the expense of workers) _________ Disparate impact on Black LA
