Moving on up

MORE HISTORY — Obama made more history when he was re-elected president on Nov. 6, and political activity in Skid Row became historic when residents there elected General Jeff for an historic third term to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council. General Jeff is the outspoken voice of Skid Row. Not only is he on the board of directors, he is vice president of Outreach and Communications and co-chair of the Skid Row Community Advisory Board for the Department of Mental Health. Jeff is the first Skid Row resident to ever sit on the DLANC’s upper-level Executive Committee.

Jeff may be a big man on Skid Row, but he’s still a humble one. Following his historic re-election, he said: “One of my constituents came to me on election night and said ‘This was the first time I ever voted in my life.’ Do you know how honored I was to hear that?” Jeff asked. “That’s why I do what I do and why I’m so motivated to continue doing what I do — for my constituents. As they continue to become more and more involved in the process, their collective voice will grow and they’ll automatically have more say-so in the decisions that directly affect their lives.” (Soulvine addendum: Take this man out of Skid Row and put him in City Hall, the state Legislature, the Congress — some place where he can help me!)
