  1. I want the LA River to be what is been for millions of years… A NATURAL UNDISTURBED, LIFE SAVER, NATURAL CORRIDOR FOR MIGRATORY BIRDS< HOME OF THOUSANDS OF DIFFERENT SPECIES OF MAMMALS, REPTILES, BIRDS, INSECTS, FISH, AMPHIBIANS… A PUBLIC ASSET THAT BELONG TO EVERYONE NOT JUST A FEW CORRUPTED INDIVIDUALS, AND A NATURAL BEAUTY THAT EVERYONE, SPECIALLY FUTURE GENERATIONS OF CALIFORNIANS AND VISITORS SHOULD BE ABLE TO ADMIRE AND ENJOY AND A VERY RESPECTFUL AND RESPONSIBLE WAY !! STOP Commercializing the LA River !! STOP Killing the Wildlife !! STOP Destroying the very fragile LA River Ecosystem !! STOP selling Public Assets to Irresponsible and Unethical "non profit organizations" and irresponsible Millionaire Investors. CORRUPTED Elected Officials are promoting, Supporting, lying and betraying to the very TAX payers that pays for their salaries ( very high salaries btw), We as a Community should remind this "Elected Officials" Whom they really works for !! STOP THE GENTRIFICATION NOW !!
