“I’m talking to the owner of this facility right now, going ‘Hey, make it look nice from the outside because enough is enough,’” Loloee said. “He’s been making money off of this for God knows how long. Spend some money on your property.” …

The councilman sees Del Paso Boulevard, the district’s withering business corridor, as a “gold mine.” While Loloee frowns on the signs of economic despair, he also sees potential for a vibrant future. He embodies the indignation of a community that has long been Sacramento’s “dumping ground” and wants to confront decades of institutional racism and neglect.
