Be the Change in Your Community – Run for a Seat on Your Neighborhood Council
(Los Angeles)The first candidate filing period begins December 16, 2018. Neighborhood Council elections will be held from late March to mid-June. LA’s 99 Neighborhood Councils form the grassroots level of the Los Angeles city government. The system was established in 1999 to connect their communities to City Hall. The Neighborhood Councils advocate on issues like homelessness, land use, housing, emergency preparedness, sustainability, aging, youth programs, transportation, and parks. While Neighborhood Council board members are volunteers, they are public officials elected by the members of their community. Most board members serve two-year terms; a few Councils have four-year terms. For more information http://EmpowerLA.org/GetInvolved
