TONIGHT: DOWNTOWN RESIDENTS COUNCIL CONSIDERS INNER CIRCLES, PARK EXPANSION AND CYCLING SCOFFLAWS
Joe Garem has been selected to fill an unexpired term on the executive committee of the Downtown Residential Council (DRC) and will be introduced during the organization’s quarterly Downtown Forum at KDB tonight at 7, according to a press release from the group.
This evening’s business also includes an update from 2nd District Field Deputy Mark Magdaleno, an announcement by Willmore City Heritage Association president Kathleen Irvine about the Cesar Chavez Park expansion, an update on Long Beach’s Bike Initiatives by the City of Long Beach’s bicycle coordinator, Allan Crawford, and a sit-down with Eric Sing, Police Services Specialists in the South Division of the Long Beach Police Department, about the current state of bicycle culture and the enforcement of of related laws and codes in Long Beach.
The Downtown Residential Council is comprised of resident leaders from the six Downtown neighborhood associations: Promenade Area Residents Association, Ocean Residents Community Association, North Pine Neighborhood Alliance, West End Community Association, Willmore City Heritage Association, and East Village Association.
Founded in 2009, the DRC represents Downtown Long Beach residents living in the area loosely bound to the south by the ocean, to the north by Anaheim Street, to the west by the I-710 freeway, and to the east by Alamitos Avenue. The DRC describes itself as a forum for neighborhood associations to join together to discuss common issues of concern. It says it works together for the benefit of all Downtown residents by making Downtown Long Beach a better place to live, work and play.

TUESDAY, SEPT 18: YOU, TOO, CAN BE TRAINED, CERTIFIED AND DEPUTIZED TO WORK DEMOCRACY’S FRONT LINES
This is the time of year that everybody becomes aware of our fast-approaching Election Day—it’s Nov. 6, just seven weeks from today—basically because of the constant reminders everybody gets from everybody else.
But it’s also the time of year that a more-important day is approaching even faster—it’s Oct. 22, less than five weeks from today—yet hardly anybody connects the date with the deadline for registering to vote.
Among those who do are the members of All Of Us Or None, an organization of former inmates committed to helping former inmates find a new way of life outside prison. For All Of Us Or None members, this is the time of year they train, certify and deputize people as Registrars of Voters—qualified to register voters for the Nov. 6 election … but only until Oct. 22.
Training sessions are 1 ½ hours. They focus is on proper methods and techniques for registering voters—the legal leeway that Deputy Registrars are allowed and the legal limits they must honor. This includes helping those who need assistance completing their voter-registration forms, vote-by-mail applications and important California Election Codes related to registration. Participants receive a copy of The Guide to Registering Voters, and those who complete the class are awarded a Deputy Registrar of Voters Certificate.
