Elected for a second term representing the 13th Council District, Councilman Mitch O’Farrell will have a lot to report at his fifth State of Hollywood address at Taglyan Cultural Complex on Thursday, January 25th.
“Every year, we encourage people to be sure and make their reservations early,” said Chamber President & CEO Leron Gubler. “We have sold out for this event in the past. We again expect a lot of interest.”
This will be an excellent opportunity for attendees to network and gain exclusive insights on homelessness, jobs and the local economy, increasing the affordable housing stock and public safety. This year’s luncheon will be once again held at the Taglyan Cultural Center, 1201 N. Vine Street, with networking beginning at 11:30 a.m. and the luncheon following at 12 noon.
Sponsorship Opportunities start at $1,600 and come with a reserved table for 10. Reservations can be made online at hollywoodchamber.net/events or by calling (323)469-8311.
O’Farrell has built a solid reputation as a councilman who understands the importance of maintaining a healthy business climate. He led the fight to be sure that the City Council considered business impacts before voting to raise the minimum wage. He was the first councilman to go on the record opposing Measure S, the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative, that would have slapped a building moratorium on Los Angeles. He is working to create opportunities for more affordable housing and to reform City policy to help small, neighborhood businesses that drive the local economy.
The Councilman’s district is the most diverse in the City, including the neighborhoods of Atwater Village, East Hollywood, Echo Park, Elysian Valley, Glassell Park, Historic Filipinotown, Hollywood, Mid- Wilshire/Koreatown, Rampart Village and Silverlake. He understands the importance of Hollywood, its history, and its brand as a unique one-of-a-kind destination place for the rest of the world, said Chamber President Leron Gubler, who noted that “He is working to enhance Hollywood’s reputation as a world-class neighborhood in which to live, do business and visit. He promotes that it is an economic driver for the rest of L.A. as the entertainment capital of the world and a worldwide destination for tourists.”
Council President Herb Wesson assigned Councilmember O’Farrell as Chair of the Arts, Parks, and Los Angeles River committee; Chair of Entertainment and Facilities; and a committee member of Economic Development committee, Energy and Environment committee, Public Safety committee, Public Works and Gang Reduction committee, as well as the ad hoc committee for the 2024 Summer Olympics.
