Neighbors and leaders of the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council (GWNC) joined City Council Member David Ryu and CD4 Field Deputy Rob Fisher to present a Certificate of Recognition to Windsor Village resident Joe Hoffman for his service to the neighborhood council. Hoffman served as Secretary of both the Board of the GWNC and its Land Use Committee, until he stepped down two months ago due to illness.
Hoffman, a web developer, won election to the GWNC in 2014 as the Renters Representative to the board. He ran for the seat on the neighborhood council to give a voice to his fellow renters in the community, and he worked to engage and inform them as equal members of the community. Shortly after his election, Hoffman also served as chair of the GWNC Outreach Committee, and could be seen manning the neighborhood council’s booth at the annual Larchmont Family Fair. He also took on the task of digitizing the communications and workflow of the all-volunteer board of directors, and served as its web designer and webmaster.
Deeply committed to the preservation and improvement of his neighborhood, Hoffman served as secretary of the GWNC Land Use Committee where he created a database management system for the committee to manage its work. Hoffman is also a staunch advocate for housing, and many residents also know him for his efforts to organize the annual homeless census in our area for the past several years.
Hoffman, who has lived in Windsor Village for more than 10 years, also served as the Vice President of the Windsor Village Association board, and was an active member of the Friends of Harold Henry Park Committee.
