OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMavi Llamas – I grew up in Lincoln Heights, attended school here, and moved away approximately 15 years ago, only to return to my parent’s home last year to find a neighborhood that I hardly recognize. Many of the changes have been for the better, but there is still much work to do; I think it is time for me to join in and help move this neighborhood forward without disenfranchising the very people who have kept this place thriving. Our rich diversity and multi-generational households. I am a full time non-traditional student, and admit that my lack of political experience makes me a non-traditional candidate, but I learn fast and am committed to improving our community.
America_LopezAmerica Lopez – I grew up in Ramona Gardens and have lived in Lincoln Heights since 2005. I am a proud graduate of Lincoln High. I’m a mobile app developer and participant in the ‘sharing economy’. For work, I have traveled across the United States and even to Hong Kong for tech conferences and training seminars. Usually, I am among a handful of women and Latinos at these events. This made me realize that my community is being left out. I am running for neighborhood council to expand technology jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities right here.My vision is to bring the sharing economy from sites such as AirBNB, RelayRides, TaskRabbit, KivaZip and more to combat unemployment in Lincoln Heights. We need to nurture creative talent in our community and in demand skills. Visit my website to learn more http://captainamericalopez.com. I will see that our community is on the right track.
