CITY COUNCILMAN TOM LABONGE, COUNCIL DISTRICT 4 We start a new month with a chang-


ing of the guard. Our great councilman and friend, Tom LaBonge, finished his last term as councilman in the Hollywood 4th District. He served the City for nearly 40 years in many dif- ferent capacities, a City which he truly loves. Tom is a people person and always took his limited time to talk to his many friends in the community. We owe him a big debt of gratitude for his support for our Historical Society and the Hollywood Museum and Memorial in Old Fire Station 27.


From his biography:


“My mission is to help and provide leadership and guidance in matters of civic life that will promote healthy neighborhoods, foster community spirit and involvement and a sense of pride for all residents of this great City of Los Angeles.


I, and my staff, share a philosophy of


teamwork and collaboration that emphasizes responsiveness, compassion, professionalism and a desire to provide the best in city services. Our pledge is to exemplify good government practices to earn your respect and admiration no matter how big or small the issue. My love for Los Angeles knows no lim-


its and I strive each day to be the most respon- sible and responsive representative at City Hall helping to develop and execute initiatives that will maintain, enhance and beautify our unique communities-both for the 4th District as well as the city at large.” “Let’s continue to enjoy and love the


great City of Los Angeles!” - Tom LaBonge
