The Griddle and the LA City Council

Before you

When Angelenos want to find out what restaurants are good, they used to turn to Citysearch. Now, though, it appears that Yelp is the go to source for this kind of information. A recent perusal of the site shows that The Griddle is "the most bookmarked in the last month." So, what does this have to do with the LA City Council, you ask?

The LA City Council has their own Yelp Review page. Yes, it's true. With only one review, the Los Angeles City Council Members seems to be doing fine. But, what do you think? Will the LA City Council ever be the most bookmarked in the last month like The Griddle? Regardless of the popularity of the page (only one review as of this writing), this is a great opportunity to have the City Council reviewed by folks that may not always give opinions on our local leaders.

The one reviewer calls out only 3 members by name: Hahn, Parks, & Wesson. These 3 and their 12 colleagues make up this esteemed body, and they deserve to hear your praise, criticism, and/or comments.

Also notable is that other Yelp pages exist for 311 Services and the City itself.
