South LA residents are getting fed up with the lack of leadership in Council District 8. To add insult to injury, councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson uses social media to pretend he is at community meetings, when he is not.
The Ralph’s grocery store on Manchester and Western made local news, when a resident shared the nasty conditions of the store on her Facebook page.
The local neighborhood council held a community meeting this evening, with representatives from Ralph’s present and shared video on their twitter page.
In the video you can hear attendees stating that “the area councilman says he doesn’t shop” at the store nor did he bother to show up to either listen to the communities concerns and/or ask questions of the Ralph’s representatives in attendance.
If you were to go to the councilman’s twitter feed, you would see a photo that one would assume he was there. Inquiries to the event organizers determined that’s a lie.
Residents pay the councilman’s nearly $180,000 salary to represent the area. Perhaps it’s time to start looking for his replacement who is truly about the people who voted for them.
