In his presentation, Assemblyman O'Donnell said Ms. Cantrell had stood up for residents and our local animal population "sometimes against me." He cited Ms. Cantrell's defense of migratory birds and their challenged environments and her most recent projects which include Los Cerritos Wetlands and the Marina Drive development projects "and their impact on our fine feathered friends."
Assemblyman O'Donnell continued:
She succeeded in bringing positive changes to the Will J. Reid Boy Scout Park (the Riverview development) while also making vast improvements to the Dominguez Gap wetlands (I didn't know you were involved in that) and continues to work on protecting the environment with the oil projects and Synergy Oil (that's PCH and 2nd). Ann is currently a member of CARP, Citizens About Responsible Planning, and serves as the CARP Treasurer.
5th district resident/former 5th dist. Council candidate Corliss Lee attended the presentation and captured VIDEO and photos below.
