Tom LaBonge News
Tom helped unveil the largest piece of the Berlin Wall outside of Berlin today in the Museum District on Wilshire Blvd. The thirty-foot piece of wall is available for public viewing at any time at 5900 Wilshire Blvd. in anticipation of ceremonies to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of this infamous Cold War symbol. The 20th anniversary event will be held on Nov. 8, 2009 at the same location.
You’re invited to tour the new Marshall High School track and field with Tom next Friday, Oct. 23 at 4pm. School officials will hold a dedication ceremony beginning at 5pm. Councilmember LaBonge worked with LAUSD officials for years to identify funding for this much-needed project.
LaBonge and Wesson pulled on their work gloves and tossed out a few abandoned mattresses on Thursday to demonstrate a coordinated effort to keep the streets of Koreatown clear of bulky item refuse.
