How Neighborhood Councils Could Save Los Angeles

Hosted by

Today's election turnout undoubtedly will be very low, and that's  a reminder that Los Angeles is a city so fragmented — complete with a mountain range down the middle — that self-government is a challenge. Two young men who grew up in different parts of Los Angeles didn't know each other until they went back east to college. Since then they've both worked on Capitol Hill, and are now second-year students at Stanford Law School.  Adam Sieff, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley, and Salvador Perez, who comes from View Heights neighborhood near LAX, recently collaborated on a blog post on LA Observed.
