The May 1 elections for the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council are just around the corner, so this is a great time to get to know the candidates running to represent your neighborhood.
There are a total of 41 candidates running for the 21 GWNC Board seats, representing 15 different neighborhoods in the Greater Wilshire area, along with six specific special interest categories. Anyone who lives, works or owns property in the Greater Wilshire area (see map), is eligible to vote for up to two seats – the geographic area in which you live, work or own property, and one of the special interest categories (At Large, Business, Education, Religion, Renters, or Other Non-Profit).
For an up-close-and-personal chance to meet and greet the candidates for your area or special interest category, and to have a chance to talk with them personally, the GWNC is holding an informal “Meet the Candidates” forum this coming Sunday, April 3, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Robert Burns Park (4900 Beverly Blvd.). Actor and activist Ann-Marie Johnson will moderate the event, where each candidate will have up to four minutes to present a personal statement, with time afterward for more informal conversation. Refreshments will be provided.
The GWNC elections will be held on Sunday, May 1, from 12 to 4 p.m. in the parking lot of the Barking Lot pet store, 366 N. Larchmont Blvd.
