    What about the owner of a small duplex property owner. I am a Senior Citizen on a fixed income who depend on the rent to pay not only the mortgage on the property but other expenses including food… while the tenants are staying in my house for free and/or without paying rent. Some tenants even have the money to pay rent and aren’t paying. How are you going to help people like me???. I voted for you Janice Hahn. I am not a big corporations.. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO HELP Me!!!!!!!!

    Supervisor Hahn, watching from NorCal and seeing your commitment in progressing with your County reopening, albeit safely, it’s quite clear you are a true advocate for your constituents. In Contra Costa County, our Supervisor and her colleagues are telling us they have zero authority to make or enforce any decisions when it comes to the reopening as all this authority has been given to the County Health Officer per the Emergency Order. In addition they state they do not receive any information on next steps, decisions until immediately before a decision is made. Is this accurate? It seems you’ve been able to drive progression either for or with the LA County Health Officer. As you know, the Bay Area has aligned to hold our Counties behind the state reopening guidelines, despite Contra Costa having some of the lowest figures in the State. Hoping you have some feedback if the message our Supervisor(s) is telling us is true and our Health Officer is truly the only one in a position to make policy decisions impacting our 1.2mm residents? Thank you.

    Greetings from Cerritos, CA. We appreciate the efforts the county is making to keep our residents safe. However, we encourage the Board to move quickly to reopen businesses and restaurants, under careful guidelines, to stimulate our economy’s recovery and encourage our residents. Orange County is doing a fine job of allowing businesses to reopen.

    We would prefer to keep our tax dollars in LA County; however, we dined in at Olive Garden in Buena Park yesterday, and plan to go to Rodrigo’s in Anaheim next week, as our own Rodrigo’s in Artesia remains closed for dine-in.

    Supervisor Hahn,

    The County and Governor Newsom need to revise the guideline of reopening houses of worship at 10% of capacity or 100 people, whichever is less. That guideline discriminates against churches like Calvary Chapel of South Bay in Gardena, whose main sanctuary holds close to 2,300 people. The current guideline discriminates against house of worship of this size.

    Please consider how essential it is for us to exercise our 1st amendment right to assemble peacefully and to exercise our religious freedom. If it’s okay to buy liquor, buy marijuana, and to get an abortion, why can’t we exercise our 1st amendment rights in the least restrictive manner possible?

    Regards,

    Ms. Hahn it seems like Barbara Ferrer who is SOCIAL WORKER AND not an MD is making a decision as to what and when to open since it is in the PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT notice.
    BARBARRA FERRER IS UNQUALIFIED TO MAKE ANY DECISION OR COMMENT ON ANY DECISION SPECIALLY SINCE ALL OF HER DATA WAS WRONG AND LIES AND FAULTY. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HER AGENDA BUT SHE IS NOT AN MD THEREFORE SHE CANNOT MAKE ANY MEDICAL DECISIONS. WE ARE DEMANDING FOR HER TO BE REPLACE BY AN ACTUAL PHYSICIAN WITH EXPERIENCE ON THIS FIELD NOT A SOCIAL WORKER.

    THANKYOU

    Janice, we worked together at Edison as single Moms in Public Affairs. Please support retail workers in opposing any delays in minimum wage increases. Our commissions have been eliminated (I made over 100k at St. John for many years, nice suit by the way, now we have no commission structure in retail, no benefits since we mostly work 2 jobs at 29 hours per week). Now you’re asking us to wait again and stay on County Med-i-Cal for our insurance benefits? Please oppose this suggestion by your colleague and think about the thousands of single mom’s who need their minimum wage increases that we voted for. No more delays. This is wrong.
    Best wishes

    It would be nice if our Mayor or Governor would offer UTILITY FORGIVENESS!!!! They made millions of people lose their jobs, making us stay at home, and now creating higher UTILITY bills(big deal if they defer payment-you still have to pay it down the road)..After last years FBI raid at the LADWP where hundreds of millions of dollars were stolen and not one person was thrown in jail, you would think this would be an offer that could help millions of people instantly!! PLEASE ADDRESS THIS ISSUE!!!!

    I think reopening retail stores is really unfair to the workers that have been working during this Covid 19 pandemic. The Target and Walmart companies have not done enough to protect its employees with unruly customers and management that only want to make money and force hourly employees to serve and be treated as if we are not human. I think the Walmart and Target chain store should not be allowed to return to hours that extend pass 8:30 as it is now during this pandemic. It allows the employees more time to recuperate from a long shift and allows more time for cleaning ,stocking disinfecting stores . This is a safety issue also these stores shouldn’t allow employees seniors to work to 1am for any reason it is too dangerous.

    Funny how you and your staff are working form home, yet you want retail workers back at it, risking their lives for the minimum wage. If it is so safe, why don’t you work in the public? This is extremely concerning to those of us with loved ones who work in retail. Beyond that, you issued your statement before the LA county department of health weighed in. This creates confusion and false expectations for people.

    Restaurants for dine in shouldn’t be allowed until the rest of the county is open. Dine in restaurants where people are inside with NO mask on and eating and drinking with lots of other people is much more dangerous than going to work, shopping at a mall, shopping anywhere really. Our mayor in La Mirada is trying to get restaurants open and I’m SO against this. We have a large elderly community here! We have an old age home here and and senior living community. It’s ridiculous that so many people are pushing so hard for this step. I agree that people should go back to work with social distancing. But having people be indoors with out masks is just too much. I saw a picture of our mayor and city council standing with Boy Scouts NOT wearing masks. They were all standing close together (NO Social distancing) Clearly our city t think this is a public health Crisis and they only care about opening business. I want the county making this choice for the WHOLE county…..NOT my local city who is behaving VERY irresponsibly with NO MASKS on (even around CHILDREN). Our city is Lobbying the supervisors to open and I want to make it clear that we have a high elderly community here that needs to be protected and not scarified so people can eat inside restaurants!

    farideh, I sincerely suggest that you offer your non-paying attorney tenant a few thousand dollars to move. The cost will be less than what you would pay an attorney and your tenant would be moving sooner than what a court action would take. I’m learning that background and credit checks are so important. I just rented to a “retired” attorney and am concerned.

    Dear Ms. Hahn,

    I want to thank you for the positive, yet reality-based, messaging you have been sending out throughout the coronavirus pandemic. With your messages today however I do have a concern.

    You make no mention of having consulted with LA County Public Health before sending out word that all retailers throughout the state can now reopen if following certain safeguards. In doing so you imply to LA County and LA city residents and retailers that stores can now reopen. This is clearly not what the CA Dept. of Public Health said. They said retailers may reopen, with safeguards, SUBJECT TO COUNTY HEALTH OFFICIALS’ APPROVAL. Leaving this key fact out of your statement today may well convey a false impression to Los Angeles county and LA city residents and retailers, depending upon what Mayor Garcetti and the LA County Public Health Dept choose to do.

    In the event you did not communicate with Los Angeles County Public Health before your issuing your statement, I wish you would’ve done so. Accurate, detailed, reliable information is critical in this anxiety-producing time. If you did communicate with them before issuing your statement, it would’ve been helpful to me if you had mentioned doing so.

    I believe you agree with me that these crucial decisions regarding the pace of reopening should be made by public health professionals, In this case by Dr. Ferrer and others at LA County Public Health.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Roger A.

    I just want to thank you for reaching out to the governor on behalf of small business in LA county. My daughter has a small bridal boutique which sees one bride and her family at a time by appointment only. And she can’t open. Having 6 or 7 people in your boutique is a far cry from the 100 or 200 that Walmart has at any given time. I want to thank you for being a champion for small businesses at this crazy time. We need all the help we can get.

    Public Relations stunt? So letters from the BOS are just political stunts? I think you should review some of the letters sent to our politicians from the BOS. In the past a 3-5 signature letter was rushed form Board Office to Board office to get the letter to the appropriate person ASAP.

    Jay, Sadly, I think you are right. Ms. Hahn was taking a lot of heat from constituents to FULLY reopen the beaches, get businesses going, etc. Those voices were not only much more numerous and louder than the others, but often I would see them threaten to fight against her re-election. So, yes, I’m sorry to say that this COULD be a public relations move. Would have been much better to see at least one more LA County supervisor sign Ms. Hahn’s letter. Would be nice to see some of our elected leaders be STRIDENT about reopening, not to mention that it would have been better and more believable if the letter to Gov. Newsom and calls for reopening had happened earlier.

    Without the whole board signing, the letter seems like a public relations stunt.

    Seniors need to sit in beach chairs with umbrellas.
    Seniors need to ride their bicycles.
    Seniors need parking lots open.
    Seniors demand Barbara Ferrer be fired.

    I have been critical of the Board of Supervisors recently, and critical of Janice Hahn. But I will give credit when credit is due, Thank you Ms. Hahn for sharing our need to get back open and telling Gavin Newsom what needs to change.
    As we navigate this situation of living with the presence of Covid-19, we have to make reasonable changes, practice good behaviors that will reduce the spread.
    Remember we live with many forms of disease and many dangerous activities that require better thought, but with the exception of Covid-19, nothing else has stopped the world. But we need to have an economy to survive into the foreseeable future.
    So again Thanks for speaking up. The rest of our government needs to listen to us.

    Thank you for writing Gov Newsom to ask him to let small stores open. If Target, Costco were only allowed to sell only “essential items” such as food, water, diapers, etc. then maybe the shut down of smaller stores would have made senses. But you can buy patio furniture, clothing, books. flowers, cards, toys, etc at any of these large stores. The customer is not limited to “essential items” . If I can try a shirt on at Target and then buy it, why is a small clothing store not allowed to do the same? The smaller store would be safer as it would have less foot traffic and the lines to purchase would be smaller if non-existent. Gov Newsom’s actions discriminate against the small business owner. Thank you for having the back bone to stand up to this inequality. Unfortunately, Long Beach is not showing the same fortitude and is acting like a sheep being led to slaughter. The fall out from shutdown related actions will be and is already far worse than Covid-19. Suicide, depression, addiction, abuse, medical issues that are not treated – all of these are the consequences of this prolonged and unnecessary shut down.
