During the past few months, more than a few people have asked us why they weren't receiving any more "Hi 5" newsletters. The reason is simple, though it might come as a surprise to many.
In the months before a City of Los Angeles election, the offices of certain elected officials – those who are candidates seeking reelection, or election to a different City office – are prohibited from mass mailing newsletters: that prohibition extends to electronic distribution through email. The period of time during which such distribution is prohibited is called the "blackout period." Now that the election has been decided for the 5th Council District, this office can resume its newsletter. So once again, the Hi 5 will be heading your way. As always, we encourage you to read it, share it, and send your suggestions, including about potential stories and regarding calendar items on upcoming events.
