ATVN goes live from City Hall, where Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass delivers her first State of the City address. She focused her speech on homelessness and public safety.
“I am 127 days into my administration, and I cannot declare that the state of our city is where it needs to be,” she said.
Bass’ new budget for the city includes millions of dollars in funding for public safety and housing. The budget proposed $1.3 billion to go toward the homeless crisis, as well as an additional $250 million for the mayor’s Inside Safe program, which plans to house people currently living in tents and encampments.
Facing a decrease in employment in the LAPD, she also called for hundred of officers to be hired by the department over the next year.
The LAPD hosted an event etching vehicle ID numbers into catalytic converters in an effort to prevent thefts. The event, part of their “Etch and Catch” program is an effort to deter would-be thieves from stealing catalytic converters which contain precious metals and can be resold for around 800 to 1,200 dollars.
And the Broadway production of “The Phantom of the Opera” ended its run this weekend with a final curtain call Sunday night. The musical was Broadway’s longest-running show, with nearly 14,000 performances over its 35-year reign. A former music director for the London production of the musical speaks with Annenberg Media about its global influence.
