Over the past 10 days the food truck supporters and followers have really come through for the food truck industry with emails and calls to Councilman Koretz. Paul Koretz commented on our campaign in an interview with LAist.com. I’m still not completely satisfied with his “nuisance” comment, but I am happy that he has clarified his previous statements and recognized that food trucks have many advocates. I will be inviting the Councilman and/or his staff to join us at the Century Lot next week. We will keep you updated on our progress with City officials.
There is a community meeting tonight at 7:00 pm in West Los Angeles at the Felicia Mayhood Community Center on the south west corner of Santa Monica Blvd and Corinth Ave (a couple of blocks west of the 405) involving produce/food truck business owners and the community members who oppose them. Meeting is mediated by City Attorney representatives. If you are in the neighborhood please come by and show your support. I’m trying to get a food truck there so we have a place to eat after the meeting. (thanks to Alley Cat Mag for the heads up).
