L.A. City Council Member Marqueece Harris-Dawson (@mhdcd8) discusses Karen Bass’ new Inside Safe program, Measure HHH ($1.2 billion dollars for homeless services), affordable housing, Renter’s Rights to Counsel in L.A., getting LAPD off traffic stops in L.A. since it disproportionately affects Black and Brown communities, and more.
I also had a great time going through our lighting round, inspired by the MHD Off the Record Podcast, in which we go over some of the Council Member’s favorite movies and memories through the city.
Also, remember to submit your voicemail to the new J.T. Weather Report!
Here are the four easy steps to take when calling into the hotline:
I. Choose an interesting nickname for yourself to keep your anonymity.
II. Tell me which side of The City (or County) you’re calling from.
III. Tell me how you’re liking the weather, or if you’ve seen anything interesting through it like a downed power line, fallen tree, a pack of opossums, etc.
IV. Keep it under a minute! This helps us tune in to more reports rather than less.
***And if you’d like to keep your number anonymous as well, did you know that pressing *67 before you dial a number keeps your number blocked? That’s right!
Submit your voicemail to the J.T. Weather Report at (213) 458-5042.
