My experience also will allow me to assist the council in financial matters.

Tony Wilkinson – In about 2005 I joined with many others to help form a neighborhood council in Panorama City. I am still active in that council. I know that our two communities share many of the same challenges. On the Mission Area Community Police Advisory Board, I deal every month with policing issues in both North Hills and Panorama City. I’m proud to work with many wonderful people on First 5 LA’s Best Start Partnership to bring new services to children and their families in North Hills. I work with the San Fernando Valley Coalition on Gangs and many social services providers to improve the lives of all of our residents. Now I want to do what I can to help the Arleta council solve the kind of problems this whole area shares. Your vote for me is a vote for cooperation, positive energy and a welcome for everyone in North Hills

Edward Ceniceros – I am committed to bringing change to our community and high risk youth in order to make a difference. We need to meet the challenge at its root cause. This means challenging our communities to own the issues that plague our community. We cannot do that by just sitting behind our desks, or driving by: we need to go into those places that most choose to stay away from. That is how we meet the need at its root.(Espanol) Estoy dispuesto cambio a nuestro comunidad y a nuestra juventud que esta enriesgo en orden de hacer una diferencia. Nosotros necesitamos llegar a la raiz de Los desafios. Esto quiere decir desafiar a nuestra comunidad que tomen responsabilidad a Los problemas que plagan a nuestra comunidad.
