Reminder: Venice Neighborhood Council Election Is Sunday, June 2nd from 10am-6pm at the Oakwood Recreation Center.

With several over-size projects threatening to bust through Venice's three-story height limit, the upcoming Venice Neighborhood Council election may be definitive in preserving our low-rise, bedroom community atmosphere.

The election will also signal our community's desires on public safety, city response to encampments, and many other quality-of-life issues. For example, should the city make it easy for residents to install planter boxes on sidewalks to beautify our neighborhoods, address global warming and act as buffers between encampments and vulnerable residents?

I urge every Venetian to put the election on your schedule for Sunday, June 2nd.

Anyone who lives, works or owns property in Venice may vote.

But you must bring the proper identification:  drivers license or utility bill for residents, check pay stub showing local address of your employer for employees, and property tax bill or utility bill for property owners. 

To clarify for whom you may vote:  

electors may only vote for one of the 40 Community Officer candidates for the 13 community officer positions, 

and vote for the executive positions of president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, outreach chair, communications, and chair of the Land Use and Planning Committee.

Please message me at for my recommendations.

Finally, I am a candidate for Community Officer.
