Note: The owner has not posted a list of tenants that correspond to the parking stall numbers, so such info would need to be investigated for this list to be completed regarding the parking assignments i.e. tandem stalls. Pictures supplied previously to the DFEH show tenants parked in the tandem stalls but I cannot verify which tenants by unit number. The numbers on the stalls are not meant to correspond to the posted apartment numbers, i.e. unit 9 is assigned to stall #8. There are 20 parking stalls and eighteen units.

(This information has been redacted from the original. The DFEH under Governor Gavin Newsom believes complaints of racism should be kept secret from the public’s eyes; this author disagrees. This complaint was forwarded to the DFEH via email on August 10, 2020 at 2:34 pm. The intake form is three pages long. The “complaint” is twelve pages long including a chart of tenant names. Note: the DFEH process is that they initially allow a person to file an “intake” form that is not a Complaint. The DFEH claims “The DFEH representative will determine if a  complaint can be accepted for investigation.” IMO in this way the DFEH arbitrarily and unfairly weeds out discrimination complaints by only allowing an intake form and then telling the claimant they will not make it into a complaint. IMO the DFEH should not have the authority and probably does not have the authority to stop a person from filing a complaint. But this is how they do it. So IMO to get around this, just file your own signed Complaint with the Intake. Then if you have to take the DFEH to court, you can show the Judge your complaint and claim damages against the DFEH. The DFEH should not be allowed to keep a person, or intimidate a person, from filing a complaint, which is their current practice. By not allowing the person to file a complaint, the DFEH is violating a citizens constitutional right to redress their grievances to the government. Since 2014, numerous city of Los Angeles employees have been named in housing complaints against this property. All of the city employees have refused to provide “full and equal” housing services to Black tenants. Employees include: Rushmore D. Cervantes, Claudia Monterrosa, Bessy Corrales, Sally Richman, Alfonso Perez, Sharon Lowe, Mayor Erci Garcetti, Karen Baggio, Presiliano Sandoval, Robert Galardi, Angelo Shannon, Steve Ongele,Richard Horn, Mark Salazar, Crystal Otero, Corey Hupp, Paula Hudak, Terry Herr, Michael Hughes, Jonathan Horn, Herb Wesson, Scott Matsunaga, Robert Hughes,  Charles Garcia, David Ryu, Luz Santiago, Lyndon Salvador, Zachery Millet, Rosa Benavides, Greg kung, Abigail martinez, Julie O’Leary, Curtis R. Watts, Olivia Mitchell, Jimmy Valenzuela, Deborah Wood, Darryl Booker, Sean Spear, Doug Swoger, Kory Smith, Mark Gandera, lou Quan, Tim Elliot, Robert Manford, Sergio Tejadilla, Helmi Hisserich, Courtney Durham, Gloria Torres, Marian Lem, Liseth Romero-Martinez, Lydia Pena, Erika Garcia, Daniel V. Gomez, Donya Plazio, Jorge De La Torre, Javier Melendez, Brian Beltran, Michael Prendergast, Norman Koplin, David Zaitz, Neil Dixon, Glender Chu, Emma Garcia, Susan Gosden, et al.   Hundreds of multifamily buildings across the city include intercoms, maintenance, and parking as housing services. How many city employees does one have to contact in order to get fair housing in Los Angeles?)
