We can't e-mail Greig Smith*

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

In our attempt to have City Council offices get LAist added to their press release lists, we have found another City Council e-mail address defunct. Enter councilman Greig Smith, the man with one of the best City Council websites (maybe not in design, but an aggressively updated one, unlike other council websites).

After failing to communicate with Tom LaBonge, a similar problem now exists with Smith. Unreported on LAist, this exact same thing happened on January 3rd of this year; reserving the notion that it could be a glitch, we shelved the idea of Round 3 until last night when we needed to e-mail Smith again. We clicked "E-mail Council District 12" on the contact page and wrote an e-mail. Within minutes, a reply:

The message that you sent was undeliverable to the following: Smith (UNUSED)

*UPDATE 4/3/07: The problem has been solved. The junk mail filter was set to block Gmail emails. Greig Smith and Google have now kissed and made up.
