|Mayor Eric Garcetti, Mary Cummins, Los Angeles, California|
KCET's charity auction
this week on eBay included lunch with incoming president of the city council Eric Garcetti. Billed as "a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get your viewpoint heard," bidders were told to "prepare to talk politics with Eric Garcetti with this certificate valid for lunch for two at City Hall or Hollywood location." The winner at $77 was Mary Cummins, president
of the animal rescue group Animal Advocates. She really wanted this lunch, apparently, biddingagainst herself
three times before swooping in on the final day to go a dollar over the last offer. (Cummins advises me that her bids were against reserve bids, which aren't shown in the final eBay tally.) Cummins own eBay profile says "I rehabilitate squirrels, skunks, opossums and chipmunks for release back to the wild."
l had lunch in little Armenia with Garcetti and one of his staff. Fantastic food and fine conversation. The main reason l wanted to meet him for lunch was because l wanted to ask him how can l get animal friendly motions made and passed. He told me people should befriend each Councilmembers' staff who is in charge of animal issues. Stay in communication with them and also speak at Council meetings. l've since done that and have made a lot of progress. Spread the word.
