Civic Notes

Attorney General Eric Holder held an event at Support for Harbor Area Women’s Lives (SHAWL), presenting the San Pedro drug abuse treatment center with an economic stimulus check for $150,000.

San Pedro High School has a new principal, Jeanette L. Stevens. The San Pedro resident sparked controversy this spring when she denied diplomas to Leichy Middle School students who protested the culmination speaker.

The Daily Breeze reports on the waterfront update port Executive Director Geraldine Knatz gave at this week’s Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council meeting.

At City Hall this week, Councilwoman Janice Hahn called for taxing medical marijuana and pushed for health-care coverage for airport workers.

The Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council elected officers at its meeting Monday. President Dan Dixon, Vice President John Mavar and Treasurer Craig Goldfarb were re-elected to office. Diana Nave is the council’s new secretary.

So, how’s “Nuch” doing? “New LA City Attorney Trutanich already making waves,” according to the Daily Breeze.

The Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council meets on Monday , July 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Cabrillo Marina Community Building, Cabrillo Plaza, Berth 28. The agenda includes a vote on the 7-Eleven zoning issue referenced above and an election to fill a vacant board seat.
