A Message to the Undecided Voters

The Beachcomber supports Suzie Price for mayor.

“Every society is perfectly engineered to get the results that it is getting.” At a conference 15 years ago, a presenter stated this quote and I never forgot it...and neither should anyone who remains undecided or may have considered skipping the ballot box altogether.

On April 16, there will be a presentation about the Long Beach shelter at City Council. Please come and be a voice for compassion in Long Beach! https://www.facebook.com/events/373941839870816/
The city of Long Beach must implement No Kill programs at our animal shelter in order to save the lives of the healthy and treatable ones left behind. Just an adoption program would be a great help. Currently, our shelter is not even near No Kill status. Texas' Hays County seems to know how and why to do this...

Sweet Potato (dog in this video at LBACS now) doesn’t deserve to be killed today at 2pm, or any other day at our LB Animal Care Service. Isn’t it time to implement adoption and foster programs at LB Animal “Care” “Service”? The No Kill Advocacy Center, Oakland, CA has proven over and over again that “The No Kill Equation” has saved over 90% of “healthy and treatable” animals at shelters all over our country and across the sea with its safety net of 11 programs that are cost effective compared to how our shelter is operating now, and run mostly by volunteers. Only you can make the change by adding our animal shelter Audit to our city council agenda and passing the recommended No Kill Resolution that was handed to all members of the council, along with the mayor. We need responsible oversight, and our council to act now, not in another 3 months. goo.gl/S2Bbvr
COMMUNITY ADVOCATES ASK LA COUNTY CIVIL GRAND JURY TO INVESTIGATE MAYOR ROBERT GARCIA'S ALLEGED HIDING OF PUBLIC COMMENTS ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGES JUST PRIOR TO ELECTION.

A group of animal advocates has submitted a Citizen Complaint to the Los Angeles County Civil Grand Jury in connection with Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia's alleged hiding of comments by the public on his Long Beach Mayor and Public Figure pages just prior to last April's election in Long Beach.

The Complaint asks the Grand Jury to investigate whether Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia attempted to place unconstitutional restrictions on members of the public as to their First Amendment rights to free speech and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

Mayor Garcia appears to have hidden 56 social media comments by 25 people who expressed opinions that differ from his Administration’s positions on issues affecting municipal services; specifically, the need to reform the Long Beach Animal Care Services animal shelter. If that is the case, we believe the Mayor is engaging in viewpoint discrimination in violation of both the First Amendment and federal law, 42 U.S. Code Sec. 1983.

We believe this falls under the jurisdiction of the Los Angeles County Civil Grand Jury, which, according to the Grand Jury Citizen Complaint Form, includes “[c]onsideration of evidence of misconduct against public officials within Los Angeles County.”

A copy of the Complaint letter is attached to this e-mail.

Questions about this complaint may be directed to Kristie Mamelli at [email protected].
