Metro and Walsh/Shea Corridor Constructors held an open house at the construction offices of the Crenshaw/LAX rail project located at 9323 Bellanca Ave. The $1.3 billion dollar project will be under construction over the next four years.  The event was well attended by both current elected officials and those running for office.  State Assemblymember Steve Bradford and Inglewood councilman Alex Padilla were on hand for the festivities.  Hopefuls Autumn Burke and Marqueece Harris-Dawson spoke to the many community members who attended on their respective campaigns.

The open house was well attended by the public who were eager to listen to highlights of the project and visually see the drawings and layout of the rail line.

I bumped into City of LA council candidate Marqueece Harris-Dawson.  We discussed his impending race and his thoughts on the upcoming special election to fill the District 1 seat for Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).  Several schools, including Crenshaw High, are in the district Harris-Dawson is running.

Harris-Dawson shared, “…should I be elected, to represent the residents in the 8th district of Los Angeles, you will see the strongest relationship between city council and the school board that you have EVER seen…”

With that kind of confidence and passion, how can you not support the #NextGeneration of leaders?
