Jim Van Dusen – I moved to Beachwood Canyon in 1970. I love the uniqueness of the area and have been involved in protecting and enhancing the safety and quality of life in the canyon by serving on the HUNC board as the Beachwood Canyon representative, co-chair of the HUNC Planning and Land Use Management Committee and member of the board directors of the Hollywoodland Homeowners Association. I also serve on a working committee with the Councilmember’s office to address and solve the issues of increased traffic and visitors. I have participated in efforts to put in place proper management of the development in Hollywood to encourage rational development while placing protections in place for the residents in the surrounding areas. This tension between those two missions is substantial and I would appreciate the privilege of continuing my activities on behalf of all Beachwood Canyon residents by being elected to the HUNC board.

Greg Horos R5_HUNCGreg Horos As an entrepreneur, rooted in this community for nearly a decade, I am all too aware of the struggles facing small business owners. Far too often the smaller retail sector faces adversity in securing the simplest of relief when seeking to start, grow or improve their respective offering to their consumer base. Many are operating without a support system and not even aware that existing entities are in place to assist their endeavors. Preferred SBA loans, tax incentives, empowerment zones and energy efficiency rebates are not merely reserved for big businesses looking to increase their profit margin. Small businesses account for nearly 98% of registered companies here in Los Angeles County. We create jobs. We employee local hires. We are the engine that drives economic recovery…and it is about time that our voices are heard. A vote for me is a vote for advocacy.
