Westlake Founder Bertha Wooldridge Featured in LA Times as Local Hero
We always knew that Neighborhood Council folks were fantastic and dedicated to making a difference in their communities. We saw it over these past three months at the polling places during the 2014 Elections, and in the months before that as Neighborhood Councils quietly went about their business as the face of civic engagement in Los Angeles.
Now the LA Times has caught wind of the inspirational story of Bertha Wooldridge, owner of Westlake Plumbing and Hardware, founder of Westlake Neighborhood Council, and one of her neighborhood’s greatest assets. We could go on about Bertha as one of the many heroes in our city, but we’ll let the feature article do the talking.
