Strictly from a government relations perspective maybe the community of Westwood does not matterRead More because in Sacramento and Washington D.C. the concern is on East Los Angeles, South Central Los Angeles, the north and east San Fernando Valleys, West Covina and other regional areas that the University can point to and say, “here is what we are doing in these areas” but Westwood is our backyard and the gateway to the University, so it only makes sense that the University not “turn its back” on Westwood.  The Volunteer Center not supporting WOMP by coordinating the student volunteers is a political disaster in our community.  This is a perfect example of how the University creates fear and a feeling of “the University does not care.”  The students love the event, the community pays for the event and it is a little bit like telling your child to clean up their room when the bed is not made and toys are all over the floor which is always a good thing and everyone benefits.  The other noteworthy thing that comes out of WOMP is the students, neighbors and merchants have a chance to work together and get to know each other.  A lot of goodwill is created by WOMP!
