P.S. Though I have so many grateful memories of working with Senator Feinstein, I hope when the Wilshire subway extension opens we will all take a moment to thank Dianne Feinstein for believing in LA and fighting for our transit dreams
Dianne Feinstein lived a principled life of service w/ courage & fearlessness. Amy and I loved knowing her, learning from her & seeing her serve our state and country. On a personal level, she was a unfailing partner for our city and always was there for me. I'll miss her deeply.
Amy & I are so sad to learn of Peg Yorkin's passing. She was a friend & mentor to both of us early in our adult lives & she was an incredible fighter for equality for everyone & just an amazingly fun person to be around. May she inspire us to always find justice and humor in life
I’m keeping the Riordan family in my prayers this week, and I join all of Los Angeles in mourning his passing. Thank you mayor for your selfless service to the City of Angels. We will miss your laugh and we will miss your heart.
Richard Riordan was a courageous, compassionate leader who brought Angelenos together to rebuild after one of the most devastating moments the city ever faced. As mayor, he set a towering example to follow, & Amy and I are deeply grateful to have known him as a colleague & friend
I'm so deeply saddened by the death of longtime peacemaker and fighter for justice, Bishop David O'Connell. He was a friend of many years and part of a prayer group that I participated in throughout the COVID pandemic. This city has lost one of its most beautiful angels.
Vin Scully's passing is the end of a chapter of our city's history. He united us, inspired us, and showed us all what it means to serve. Our City Hall will be lit up for you tomorrow Vin, our dear friend, the Voice of LA. Thank you from a grateful and loving city. #vinscully
I mourn the passing of #DesmondTutu who fought for a world of justice and love. Amy and I had the great joy of spending time with him on three continents in S Africa, the UK, and in Los Angeles in 2005. His laugh, his love, his leadership changed us and changed the world forever.
Thank you to @RepRoybalAllard for your model leadership. Your kind heart and generous spirit sometimes hid just how tough and effective you have been for LA and for immigrants--this city and this nation is grateful to you for your service to us all.
Very proud to support @RobertGarcia for Congress. I've witnessed his incredible strength, caring, and intelligence bring great hope and steer powerfully through crisis. The residents of the 47th CD couldn't have a more effective advocate fighting for them.
I mourn the passing of my friend Mark Peel, who embodied LA's belief in breaking boundaries and barriers. His absence is a huge loss for our city: latimes.com/obituaries/sto…
