D’ANDRE: Members of City Council, Mayor, and residents of the city of Ontario. Today I come before you as a resident of the city of Ontario to put on record my opposition to the city council’s resolution to switch to district voting. Districting will cripple our councils ability to work as a team.
There are many parts of our city that still need work. And the only way that work can be done is if the council is allowed to work COLLECTIVELY as one team to bring all the resources available to the table.
ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation today led students from Cerritos College EOPS Dynamics of Leadership Class in a service project that honors the legacy and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The students volunteered to assemble over 100 hygiene kits to benefit Ontario, California homeless and federal Ontario International Airport TSA workers furloughed due to the government shut down. Discussions about community service, community building, and community sustainability were led by D’Andre Lampkin and Cerritos College professor Henrietta Hurtado.
Ernestine Allen is a 32-year resident of the city of Ontario who has seen many changes over the years on her mostly palm-tree-lined street, Plaza Serena. But one thing has stayed constant: everyone communicates and looks out for one another.
In May, Ernestine noticed the diadora pine tree located in her front yard beginning to lean as winds battered the Ontario area. She was concerned parts of the tree would fall and damage adjacent homes or neighbors walking by her home.
Fifty years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, his message is still just as significant. It is my hope his legacy last another 50 years and beyond.
He taught us that there is validity in protest and that you can change the country through meaningful, constructive civil engagement. He even noted that everyone has the potential to be great through service.
Let’s also not forget King was stressed about the progress being made in the United States. There were some gains but there was also loss – including death.
Dr. King was perhaps one of the greatest human beings to ever grace this earth. Chief among the characteristics of being a human being is that he was human – not perfect, but certainly spiritually aware of our nature and the need to improve how we treat each other.

Disaster to Resilience: the difference is YOU! We have recently updated our Volunteer Registry. Our new application allows for our community of volunteers to include any information that may be useful during outreach efforts in and around your community. Information such as special skills, work information, and credentials are useful when forming teams of volunteers to fulfill specific missions.
It is with heartfelt sorrow that we have been following the tragic developments ensuing from the violent shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday October 1, 2017. This was especially personal for me as I learned two of the victims, Michael & Summer Gracia, were shot by the attacker. I have had the privilege of knowing the Gracia Family and serving side by side as a law enforcement professional with Michael Gracia’s brother.
We are continuously looking for ways to keep you engaged. A major part of the process is partnering with other non-profit organizations so that we can provide you with the tools you need to continue doing the amazing work you are doing in your communities. Therefore, we are happy to announce we are now members of “Network for Good“
