Rim of the Valley proposal moves forward

Rep. Adam Schiff talks at Brand Park in Glendale during a tour of portions of the Rim of Valley NRA proposal in this April 2015 file photo.
The National Park Service on Tuesday recommended adding 170,000 acres of wild lands, parks and historical sites to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area as part of the Rim of the Valley study initiated more than eight years ago.

The addition, which would double the size of the recreation area, includes a narrow stretch along the urban shores of the Los Angeles River and its tributary, the Arroyo Seco; the Verdugo Mountains above Glendale; the San Rafael Hills; foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and the Simi Hills, Santa Susana and Conejo mountain areas in Ventura County.

Thank you

“I’m very grateful to the voters of the 28th Congressional District for the opportunity to continue serving them. In the upcoming session, I will again focus on restoring our economy, creating jobs, and helping small businesses succeed. It is also clear that voters are deeply dissatisfied with the paralyzingly dysfunction in Congress, and I will do all I can to find common ground with my colleagues from both parties, not only in fixing our economy, but also in the key national security challenges facing our country.”

California Democrat Adam Schiff is one of Congress’ most prominent advocates for more openness from U.S. intelligence agencies about their activities. As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, he was aware of the secret National Security Agency (NSA) program that collected millions of Americans’ phone records long before it was leaked in early June by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

Rep. Adam Schiff talks to WeHo

We Ho News, Vol. 7 Issue 60
06/14/2012
By WeHo News staff, West Hollywood, California

West Hollywood’s annual CSW LA Gay Pride festival and parade enjoyed a singular first this year – the first time in history that its congress member from the United State House of Representative (presumptive) attended and rode in the parade.

WeHo News took the opportunity to interview Rep. Adam Schiff, currently serving the 29th Congressional District and presumably representing West Hollywood/Hollywood after his re-election to his newly-drawn 28th District in November.

If re-elected, he will begin actively serving the Creative City when Congress swears itself in in January, 2013. He will replace Rep. Henry Waxman, who has represented West Hollywood since 1975.

The interview was far ranging and focused on what he can do for West Hollywood and its interests from his seat on two powerful committees.
