Upcoming Events

The City of Bell Scandal - Jeff Gottlieb
Wed, May 25, 2016
In July 2010, two LA Times reporters, Jeff Gottlieb and Ruben Vives, wrote an investigative journalism article on possible malfeasance in Maywood (CA), which also revealed that the neighboring city officials of Bell were receiving salaries that were reported as the highest in the nation. Subsequent investigations found atypically high property tax rates, allegations of voter fraud, and other irregularities which heightened the ensuing scandal. In the end, 7 Bell city officials, including the former mayor, four city council members, former city administrator and assistant city administrator were convicted on graft and corruption charges, and given sentences ranging from probation to 12 years in prison. more

Welcome to Long Beach Rotary's 2015-2016 year!
Rotary brings leaders like you together from all cultures and occupations who want to use their distinct expertise doing good for others. Rotarians' sense of responsibility inspires them to give back to their communities and step forward to tackle the toughest challenges. They persevere to create positive social changes around the world.


Together, Rotarians empower youth, improve health, promote peace and advance communities in all corners of the globe. With 1.2 million members worldwide and counting, Rotary’s global impact has never been greater -- and it continues to grow.
When Rotarians come together and commit to a cause, the magnitude of Rotary’s impact is clear. One example is our PolioPlus initiative, a worldwide effort that began in 1985 to eradicate polio forever. With the ongoing philanthropic support and volunteer efforts of Rotarians, we will continue the fight to “End Polio Now.”

Our weekly club meetings provide an opportunity for fellowship and to learn about the many diverse issues affecting our world and our own community. 

Yours in service,

Greg Burnight, President #99, 2015-2016
