Business Representative Candidate
Renter Representative Candidate
As the Renter Representative for Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council (GWNC), I will advocate for area renters to our City Council representative, Nithya Raman. I believe in canceling rent for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic and support government aid programs to assist tenants who have fallen behind on rent during this crisis. I will also advocate for an expansion of rent stabilization as well as the construction of publicly controlled housing funded by taxes on developers and corporate landlords.
Area 7 Larchmont Candidate
I love Larchmont. I live here, I’ve worked here. I am committed to being a force in creating a healthier, safer, and more just Los Angeles. To me, that means encouraging greater civic participation and amplifying our neighbors’ voices on the City policies that affect us. It means pushing for solutions to our housing crisis. It means thinking critically about how to mitigate the effects of climate change at a local level. I know that creative solutions exist to even our most intractable problems. Now is an inflection point in our country and our city. We can take this opportunity to reimagine what Los Angeles, and the Greater Wilshire neighborhoods, can be. No matter how small, our voices matter. That is why I am running for neighborhood council.
At Large Representative Candidate
Area 12 Western-Wilton Candidate
I am a first generation Latinx Non-profit Data Analyst who grew up in Greater Wilshire – Los Angeles. I attended LAUSD public schools but observed the stark contrast in educational opportunities and community investment based on zip code. Immediately after graduating from University of California Riverside with a degree in Psychology, I enrolled in AmeriCorps where my experience influenced my decision to pursue a career championing equitable education for all students. I honed a dream to serve my city, neighbors, and fight for a better future for my daughter. I worked with LAUSD, the City of Hawthorne, and currently for Leadership for Educational Equity performing data analysis and community outreach. As your Geographic Area Director, I will act to unify neighborhood goals, fight for equitable opportunities, and be an amplified voice for Western-Wilton.
Area 9 Oakwood-Maplewood-St. Andrews Candidate
I am a mother of two, attorney, and social justice advocate deeply rooted in my neighborhood. In the seven years living in Area 9 – the Maplewood/Oakwood/St. Andrews pocket – I have experienced its continuing transformation. During a time of rapid evolution and unique challenges, I believe in ensuring that every voice is heard, that development in our neighborhood is thoughtful, and that equity amongst all our community members is prioritized, all while caring for our streets, parks, and air. I am a fervent believer in the power of civic engagement and want community members to feel empowered to reach out, speak up, and lead. As your Geographic Area Director, I will act as a liaison between the residents of Area 9 and Greater Wilshire NC, and advocate on the issues that matter most to our neighborhood.
