Our elections team has been cranking away with wonderful volunteers around the City:
We administered 15 Neighborhood Councils elections in the last 5 days – 7 on Sunday and 8 on Thursday where Councilmember Paul Krekorian showed his support by voting at Studio City Neighborhood Council.
A big thanks to our IEAs for those regions, Kevin Taylor and Christine Jerian, who leaves us to continue her support of Neighborhood Councils with Councilmember Eric Garcetti’s staff.
IEAs, Terrence Gomes and Jay Handal, signed up over 350 candidates in East Los Angeles, engaging communities that hadn’t really participated in the past.
Last night at midnight, we took a break from wrapping up Region 4 elections, to celebrate with IEA Rashad Trapp-Rucker, who had enough candidates at the candidate filing deadline in Region 9 – South Los Angeles to have a contested election for every one of his councils. This would not have been possible without the support of our staff, Taneda Larios, Sonya Calloway and Monique Collins, who phone banked hard the last week to get the candidates in.
We really appreciate all the incredible work our whole staff is putting in to advance the Neighborhood Council system!
