VIDEO: Compton Revitalization and Empowerment Day At Roy Campanella Park

Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas hosted a day of revitalization and empowerment at Roy Campanella Park in Compton on June 20, 2009. Experts from various County departments, non-profit agencies and community based organizations were on hand to provide essential information and resources. The above short video shows highlights from the great event.

It Is Not Too Late To Quit Smoking!

The L.A. Quits program works. Note the following email from a constituent:

“Dear Supervisor Ridley-Thomas,

I would like to personally thank you for the nicotine patches. It has been 2 weeks now and I don’t even have an urge. Thanks for helping to save my life after 30 years of smoking.”

IT IS NOT TOO LATE FOR YOU TO QUIT!

To date, we have distributed only 25% of our 30,000 two-week stop-smoking starter kit supply. And now we are holding the following outreach events in the community to make it easy to get started on quitting!
