Our First Year Together


We just celebrated one year of working together to make the 13th Council District an even greater place in the City of Los Angeles. My staff and I hosted a community event in Silver Lake last weekend to mark the occasion and would like to take a moment to thank everyone who made this a truly special event.

Folks, we have accomplished so much in just a year. We fought for the Los Angeles River, we started a conversation to address the affordable housing crisis, and we partnered with the school district to start aprogram to distribute free lunches to young kids this summer in City parks and recreation centers.

During all this, we continued to preserve neighborhoods, advocate for more city services, and promote the quality of life we all deserve. I have a complete list of community improvements and policy highlights here, and a summary of these highlights in English and Spanish that I encourage you to share with your networks. Finally, my office created an interactive map of our community cleanups to illustrate how Team Mitch is improving the look and feel of our neighborhoods, street by street.

Together we are making the 13th District and Los Angeles an even better place to live, work, and enjoy. I want to personally take this opportunity to say thank you for being part of Team Mitch, and ask for your support as we continue to fight for even better neighborhoods in the years ahead.

Warm regards,


Mitch O'Farrell

Councilmember, 13th District
