I love working in our neighborhood to help make it a great place to live.

As a homeowner who loves the Olympic Park area and has lived here for 10 years. I feel it is my duty to become more involved in my local government and help my neighbors and friends who live in the area with me have their voices heard and their concerns represented.

Luis Montoya

John Jake

I love my community and I want it to look just as good as Beverly Hills. I would like to help our community stay safe like Hancock Park. I want to see the kids play in the streets like I did when I was a kid. I want to see the students at the schools, want to be there and enjoy their education. I want to keep the neighborhood clean, free of people that’s bringing it down and know my neighbors name. It take a village to raise a kid, but it takes an indivisual to step up to help make that happen and that’s why I’m running to be one of the board of directors. It’s all about the community and getting people out there to help make it a better place to live, work and play.

Robert Michelson

I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside, give them a sense of pride, to make it easier. Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be. Everybody’s searching for a hero. People need someone to look up to. I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs, a lonely place to be. So I learned to depend on me. I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows. If I fail, if I succeed, at least I’ll live as I believe. No matter what they take from me, they can’t take away my dignity. Because the greatest love of all is happening to me. I found the greatest love of all inside of me.

Pamela Whittenbury

I feel I have much to bring to my neighborhood council. I have served on the governing boards of several nonprofit organizations and am a registered parliamentarian. I serve as Vice President of my local neighborhood council and manage the membership database. I produce the quarterly newsletter and annual calendar. I have served for 3 years as OPNC treasurer and feel I have contributed to the success OPNC has achieved in the neighborhood.

I enjoy working with others and improving the local neighborhood. I am hardworking, diligent and have learned to work efficiently with the City of Los Angeles. Helping the police, firemen, schools and parks has been most rewarding. I hope my experience in this process will add to the continuing success of Olympic Park Neighborhood Council.

Peter Schulberg

For the past 28 months I have served as a board member, and President of the OPNC. I am also a 12 year resident of the area, and the founder/director of the nonprofit Eco-LogicalART Galley (also within the OPNC). In that time I have been witness to many good changes in our Mid-City neighborhood. But more work and constant vigilance is needed to protect our unique part of Los Angeles.

School, library, park and local fire and police department support are areas of focus for me. I am also proud of the tree planting and “greening” of the OPNC that we have been able to accomplish in the past.

Additionally, with many historic homes in our neighborhood, zoning enforcement and site appropriate development is critical as we move forward.
