Meeting with constituents and addressing some of the 11th District’s public safety issues, Councilman Mike Bonin has hit the ground running during his first three weeks in office.
Bonin, who sported a Fire Station 69 hat in the town’s Fourth of July parade, told the Palisadian-Post, “It’s a slightly odd feeling to be in the spotlight,” after years of serving as chief of staff to former Councilman Bill Rosendahl.
In many ways, the parade “underscores how much the Palisades really is its own distinct village community with its own feel and personality, and it shows how much the City of Los Angeles is a city of neighborhoods,” Bonin said.
The journalist-turned-politician’s main goal is to bring a “Mayberry approach” to big-city government with the use of better technology and public outreach.
Staying true to his Access 11 plan, which aims to bring a small-town approach to big-city government, Bonin said he will visit the Palisades Farmers’ Market this coming Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
At City Hall, the councilman has been named head of the City Council’s Transportation Committee and vice-chair of the panel overseeing the construction of the Expo Rail Line.
