Prior to my appointment, I regularly attended the Executive and Governing Board Meetings. I am a active member of the Planning and Zoning Committee and the Outreach Committee. The Outreach Committee had a very successful holiday toy drive in Jefferson Park. I would like to get stakeholders involved in improving their quality of life and engaging them to get involved in government decisions that affect everyone on a daily basis. Please help elect me, Rosie Brown, to a full term seat.

To do more to help my community, I was appointed to the City of Los Angeles Domestic Violence Task Force and in 2012, appointed to our Neighborhood Council (UNNC) as an At Large Representative/Outreach Chairperson and actively support Disabled Veterans through the American Legion Auxiliary.

As a Board Member, I have supported our Neighborhood Block Club activities, movies in the park for children, and a holiday toy give-away in Leslie Shaw Park where over 500 children were served.

I respectfully request your vote to continue my work in the community.

Ophelia Daniel – I have lived with my family in the West Adams area as a home owner for twenty-seven years. I worked for the Los Angeles Unified School District for over twenty-years also in the area. If elected, I will do my best to target crime, graffiti, parking among some of the issues we face in order to have a much safer neighborhood for children, the youth, seniors, and working class people. I would also like to encourage neighborhood block-clubs and neighborhood and home beautification projects. I would like to see more greenery, (such as more tree-lined streets), and perhaps a neighborhood garden. More community minded police who would become part of this neighborhood as to take an interest in getting to know the people of whom they protect may well be a major solution to the brutality we hear so often about in the community. Also encourage businesses.
