From the Wave newspaper in southern California:
LYNWOOD — In case municipalities in county Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas’ Second District didn’t know, he’s expecting a “three-peat” next year.
Lynwood is the second city in Ridley-Thomas’ Second District to win an All-America City designation since his election to the post. The city of Inglewood won the designation last year.
That’s two years in a row in the Second District, that’s the first time,” he said. “We’re proud of them. How about a three-peat if we can do it. This is wonderful. Lynwood has Habitat for Humanity building new houses, the Lynwood Sports Association focusing on youth, and the public safety aspect. Lynwood is doing wonderful things for its citizenry and I’m very proud of that fact.”
