Victor Azanedo

My name Victor Azanedo, and I have been a resident of Lincoln Heights for fourteen years now and have seen my neighborhood change over the years. Whether that change is considered good or bad, we can all agree, that it can and should improve. My goal is to run a transparent Neighborhood Council on all matters that are presented, and outreach to the community, addressing the concerns of the majority and minority population. I promise to commit my attention to those concerns and use the proper channels to resolve them in a feasible manner.

“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln

Nanci Rosas

I am interested in running for president of Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council, because I was born and raised in the communite of Lincoln Heights. I still live in Lincoln Heights.

I have been involved, first as a volunteer in all the communite events sponsored by the Neighborhood Council for 4 years. I was then elected as CBO for the last 2 years. I am a single parent and I am very interested in all events, programs and projects going on in my communite. I believe running for president will be a great help and asset to our communite.

Lisa Joffrey

I would be honored to represent the residents of Lincoln Heights on the Neighborhood Council for Sub Area 7.
As a daughter-caregiver to my elderly mother, aunt to my infant niece, both residents of the neighborhood, my goal is simple. To listen to and protect the interest of the residents of Lincoln Heights. I will accomplish this by walking the district to talk with you and listen to your concerns.
I will provide you with ways to directly contact me.
Next, I will keep you informed of the Arroyo Seco Revitalization Plans as they progress.
We need safer sidewalks and crosswalks for the children going to school, the seniors walking their dogs or folks on their way to church.
We must maintain affordable rents, and create local jobs, not just gentrification. I promise to do my best for the people of Lincoln Heights.
Please vote Lisa Joffrey. Thank You.

Philip Horvath

After moving my business to Lincoln Heights six years ago, I have been continuously falling in love with this fascinating neighborhood. Steeped in the early history of LA, it is also beginning to have a 21st century revival through new young and creative residents. At the same time there is a strong existing community that requires respect and support. We will be able to learn from each other. There are many opportunities in this community to introduce projects such as community gardens, DIY manufacturing, community education, new technologies such as mobile phones and the Internet to enable people to provide for themselves in new ways in a quickly evolving economy which will leave many locals without work. I am passionate about bringing these ideas to the community and making Lincoln Heights an example of 21st century urban living that shines beyond the boundaries of LA.
