My office is committed to hearing the issues affecting Council District 4. Please take a moment to send us a message. Every suggestion or concern is taken seriously and will be taken into consideration by the appropriate council staff. Thank you for your feedback.
An estimate 2.4 millions illegals live in the state of California. Lets just estimate that they live 4 to an abode. If those units were available for US citizens we would have approximately an additional 600,000 abodes available to house US Citizens. Rents would come down, as demand drives prices. We would not need draconian rent control departments, draining the states and cities payrolls with their cumbersome and expensive employees and benefits, that would not be needed. A reasonable thought process would have taken one to this conclusion years ago...
When God was removed from our government, our schools and our homes, guns became a problem. But not THE Problem. Look at countries where everyone owns a gun and have VERY little gun violence... Check out Switzerland for one....
to david ryu dear sir before you waste any money to go to washington we need to clear up matters you need to contact herb and la mayor eric garcetti and the new director from district 7 to have a live talk thank you jay
Dear Councilman Rhu- There's a movement to vote you out next election if nothing is done about home and car break-ins in our Sherman Oaks neighborhood, Milikan and surrounding areas. This week a perp even hit a woman with a revolver while he was scoping out cars on Greenbnush. With nextdoor.com we have a much closer line on what is happening in our neighborhoods and how our representatives are addressing citizen and property safety.

Hi Councilman Ryu, we have an RV parked in our street, which has two adults and two school age children (not going to school) living in it and the RV hasn't moved for 2 months. We are concerned about the children, the smell, the lack of street parking in our area and would like to see if you can help us get this moved to a commercial district. Thank you
There is an RV illegally parked on our street for over a month now - occupied, with kids that seem to be left unattended a lot of the time (not in school). The smell is constant...and parking is so limited here - is there anything that can be done? This particular RV is on Waring between Las Palmas and Cherokee. We are concerned, as there are more RVs appearing further east...help!!
hi there, just read about your new nuisance tour bus proposal. i think another thing you should definitely add-- is that those bus drivers cannot use hand-held mics as they narrate the tour. i have seen on hollywood boulevard, drivers navigating the busy streets, making turns, and holding / talking into a mic with one hand and only one other hand on the wheel. it's crazy dangerous and amazingly outmoded - there is more than enough technology that they can and should have a headset mic. there is no way these drivers should be holding a mic, doing their skit / spiel, and driving with only ONE HAND ON THE WHEEL while driving a van / bus. (or... any vehicle!) its against the law to drive holding a phone. it should be the same for holding a mic... while driving a bus load of tourists... along the busy commercial streets and then residential streets. it is indeed an accident waiting to happen. every major singer uses a headset mic... it is standard technology. there is zero reason these tour bus operators should be driving with one hand on the wheel.... and one hand on a mic! thanks!
Rick Halvorsen, the former chairman of the Warren County Republicans, who pleaded guilty to incest was arrested again last week for breaking a no-contact order. According to a police report, Halvorsen followed his daughter while she was at work Sept. 24. The former GOP chairman was arrested in May for reportedly performing sex acts with the same adult daughter between June 1 and Oct. 30, 2016. Halvorsen allegedly drove by his daughter's place of work and made eye contact with her. His daughter and a witness then left work to get another vehicle parked at Simpson College. Halvorsen allegedly followed the two and the witness got a picture of him. The daughter and her coworker took the picture to the police department, and while they were explaining the situation to the police, Halvorsen allegedly drove by the police department twice. According to police officer Brian Stern, Halvorsen was driving much slower than the posted speed limit of 25 mph. Stern followed Halvorsen in a patrol car and pulled him over. Halvorsen said he and his wife had been driving around town for approximately two hours and had not been following his daughter. Stern told Halvorsen he'd seen him drive by the police department more than once, but Halvorsen denied the claim, according to the report. "Halvorsen was very upset and stated that his daughter was a liar and that we were harassing him," Stern stated in the report. Stern asked Halvorsen to step out of the vehicle, but Halvorsen refused. Officer Jay Hackett arrived to assist Stern, and the two officers had to tell Halvorsen multiple times to get out of his vehicle. Halvorsen was placed under arrest and his cellphone and wallet were given to his wife. Halvorsen's wife told the officers he did nothing wrong, according to the report. Halvorsen was then transported to the jail and was "very verbally abusive towards officers throughout the incident, screaming repeatedly and calling me a 'jack ***' and 'piece of **** multiple times,'" according to the report. Halvorsen was bailed out on a $500 bond Sept. 25. A contempt hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Oct. 11. A sentencing date for the incest charge has been scheduled for Nov. 6. Halvorsen served as chairman of the Warren County Republicans from 2014 to 2017. According to a biography on Halvorsen on the Warren County GOP's website, he served at least three terms as chairman and was co-chair of the local party for several years.
Will your office be able to get the ball rolling on the traffic circle at Bronson & Canyon now that Steve Lopez's article in this week’s L A times brought it out in the open? 12 years is a long time to wait when our community is paying for the work ourselves. Jim Fox
We sent a 300+ signature petition regarding the awful state of Griffith Park Blvd, in Silver Lake and received NO response. Our streets in Silver Lake are a mess, yet our representative can't even reply. Why is our local government not working for the people!?!
DAVID RYU we need to get the matters of my injuerys and lost of work clear up from the dept. of transportation and the lack of getting a chance of the city council to start the ball rolling its time that i need to get back to work as i feel the city can help on that can we start thank you JAY
I'm the last person to suggest taking away badly needed street parking, but there's a safety situation, and a noise problem, that could be solved by taking just a few spaces away. All day long, car horns blare at drivers exiting the Ralph's parking lot on Moorpark just east of Hazeltine. The problem is the exiting shoppers can't see past the parked cars on the south side of the street, so they have to inch out into traffic to see if it's safe to exit. Speeding eastbound drivers get either annoyed or alarmed, and all day long, it's a never-ending blare of horns. If just two or three curb spaces were eliminated, I think it would make it a lot easier to see the oncoming (and most of the time speeding) traffic and the neighborhood would be a lot quieter..
its time the la city council and the district 7 of the dept. of transportation to sit down to clear up matters of my injuerys and maybe find a job for me can we talk soon thank you JAY STAMMERJOHAN
Please give us information on the status of the LADWP closure of Franklin between Wilcox and Grace. I've heard the repairs will take another 4 months. This closure has a huge impact on the neighborhood, especially during Bowl season. Please do everything you can to expedite--get DWP to work double shifts and weekends if possible. Let us know what's happening. Thanks
