Councilman Bill Rosendahl Returns to Work

Bill Rosendahl, who represents Silver Strand residents on the Los Angeles City Council, returned to work at City Hall on October 1. The 67 year old Councilman was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer of the ureter in July and has been undergoing both chemotherapy and radiation treatment for the disease. In the process, he lost 40 pounds, but has now gained back 9. He is still using a walker, as a result of two tumors on his spine which have weakened his legs.

He made an impassioned plea, prior to the Council meeting vote on whether to repeal recently passed regulation on banning marijuana dispensaries, saying that he has been using medically prescribed cannabis to relieve the side effects of his cancer treatment and  pain from neuropathy. He asked: “Where does anybody go, even a councilman go, to get his medical marijuana?” The Council voted 11-2  to repeal their own  legislation, which was passed in July.  The issue is clouded by the fact that the Federal government has declared the sale and use of marijuana illegal  and has begun to crack down on Los Angeles dispensaries.

    This is really nice but why is it that local events such as the Abbot Kinney Festival, are not announced. These events affect traffic and should be on our radar. Thank you for these wonderful messages. I know it takes a lot of time and I thank your efforts. Let us know how we can help.
