Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is scheduled to address the Del Rey Homeowners and Neighbors Association at a special meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, December 6th, in the Marina del Rey Middle School multipurpose room, 12500 Braddock Drive, Del Rey area.

The public is invited to attend.

Villaraigosa was originally scheduled to attend the Homeowners and Neighbors Association fall general meeting November 1st, but had to reschedule when he received an invitation to speak at the memorial service for Rosa Parks in Detroit.

“Though we realize the community was disappointed that the mayor could not participate in the meeting early this month, I think everyone understood the reason,” said Chris Nevil, Homeowners and Neighbors Association president. “The mayor and his staff immediately committed to this new date, and we remain very excited about the opportunity to hear from Mayor Villaraigosa and share our views.

“I hope the Del Rey community will once again come out in large numbers to emphasize that we care about the future of our region and Los Angeles.”

Villaraigosa will be introduced by Los Angeles Councilman Bill Rosendahl. After Villaraigosa’s remarks, he and Rosendahl are expected to take questions submitted by the audience.

Parking will be available in two lots in front of the school, as well as through the school’s Westlawn Avenue gate.

The meeting is co-sponsored by the Del Rey Neighborhood Council.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Pacific Community Police Station will also be collecting new and unwrapped toys at the meeting to give to underprivileged children from the Del Rey and Venice communities.
