Mark M Supports Eastside/SGV Branch

  I support approving the proposal but urge we allow the boundaries to be decided later following further discussion. Much of our Chapter's actions and strategizing involve the City of Los Angeles, the Mayor and City Council. If the new San Gabriel Valley branch includes parts of LA City, such as Atwater, Eagle Rock, Boyle Heights, El Sereno, etc, their chapter meetings will have to cover both LA City and SGV work. The SGV branch may be better served by focusing entirely on work east of LA City in the SGV, such as supporting the occupiers of the vacant 710 expansion homes, the candidacy of a DSA member running for the Pasadena school board and others.
If there are concerns that taking out the LA City neighborhoods would prevent the new branch from having the critical mass for a strong start, let's ask for volunteers to shift their participation to the SGV branch for a time. I am wiling to do this.
