What’s the fastest way to get an Echo Park pothole filled? Just Tweet Mayor Garcetti for action

Aug 8, 2013

After his car hit a pothole at Alvarado Street and Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park, Matthew Wasserman requested that the pothole be filled. But he did not call the city’s 311 line, app or website. Instead, he simply posted his request and a photo on his Twitter account on Wednesday night and brought it to the attention of Mayor Eric Garcetti – @EricGarcetti – and Council District 13 representative Mitch O”Farrell – @MitchellOFarrell:

@ericgarcetti @MitchOFarrell The pothole at Sunset and Alvarado blew out my tire. Anyway to get this filled in?

Wasserman’s request met with a quick response from Garcetti – also via Twitter:

Not only will we get it filled @DocDinosaur but @MitchOFarrell and I will look at a more permanent fix

— Eric Garcetti (@ericgarcetti) August 8, 2013


O’Farrell’s Twitter feed also chimed in:

@DocDinosaur @ericgarcetti Hi Matthew: Lets both call it in to 3-1-1, the city number for all services. My office will see that it's filled!

— Mitch O'Farrell (@MitchOFarrell) August 8, 2013

As did an employee of the city’s Street Services department:

@DocDinosaur @ericgarcetti @MitchOFarrell Our @BSSLosAngeles street maintenance division has dispatched a crew to fix the pothole

Does anyone now want to Tweet a request for left-turn lights at Sunset Boulevard and Echo Park Avenue?
