The race for the Congressional District 30 seat in California is heating up as 15 candidates vie to replace Adam Schiff, who is stepping down to run for Senate. This district covers a large portion of Los Angeles, including West Hollywood, Glendale, and Burbank. The area has historically been predominately Democratic, and the winner of this election will likely hold the seat for an extended period of time.

This race is reminiscent of the hotly contested 2000 election when Adam Schiff first won the seat, facing off against incumbent Republican James Rogan. Given the overwhelming number of Democratic voters in the district, this election is expected to have a significant impact on local politics.

The primary election, which will take place on March 5th, will determine the top two candidates who will advance to the general election in November. Some of the front-runners in the race include State Senator Anthony Portantino, Assemblymember Laura Friedman, former L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer, and L.A. Unified School Board Member Nick Melvoin. These candidates have all raised substantial funds and have prior experience in public office.

Additionally, actor Ben Savage, best known for his role in the hit sitcom “Boy Meets World,” has captured attention with a substantial investment in his campaign. However, he faces an uphill battle against more established candidates.

The candidates largely align on key issues such as abortion rights, gun control, and climate change. They differ more in their approaches and personal stories, with each candidate emphasizing their unique background and experiences as they strive to stand out in the competitive field.

Portantino has emerged as a frontrunner, raising over $1.4 million and securing support from key labor organizations. Meanwhile, Melvoin and Feuer have also demonstrated strong fundraising capabilities, each raising around $1.3 million.

Friedman, a former film executive turned politician, has emphasized her gender and highlighted her background as a semiprofessional pool player in her campaign ads. With the primary election less than a month away, candidates have been ramping up their efforts to engage voters through advertising and public appearances, aiming to distinguish themselves in the crowded field.

The departure of Schiff has not only created an opportunity for new leadership in the 30th Congressional District but has also spurred heightened interest and competition among candidates. As the race unfolds, it remains to be seen which candidate will ultimately prevail in the pivotal primary election and go on to represent the district in Congress.

“It’s one of my favorite places in the park, and they’re up there just destroying it. I don’t understand that,” said John Haynes, public information officer at Lake Mead National Recreation Area in an interview with television station KVVU.

Haynes also emphasized that destruction of this nature at federally protected sites can lead to felony charges, resulting in potential fines and jail time. Spanning 2,344 square miles of mountains and desert canyons, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area is a popular destination just outside Las Vegas, attracting around 6 million visitors annually. Due to staffing levels, park officials often rely on the public to help monitor resources within the park boundaries.

Visitors are urged to use their cellphones to capture videos or photos of any suspicious activity, provided it is safe to do so, and to gather any information, such as license plate numbers, that could aid in identifying the offenders. The National Park Service operates a tip line that receives numerous submissions each year. The tip line number is 888-653-0009, and an online reporting option is also available.

“It’s crucial to inform us of any such incidents,” Haynes added.

Over the past decade, there have been several cases of vandalism on federal land across the Western United States, with visitors defacing petroglyphs, toppling rock formations, and damaging centuries-old rock art.
