VNC Candidate Recruitment Party at James Beach on March 6th!

From The Venice Neighborhood Council:

Venice Neighborhood Council James Beach

The Venice Neighborhood Council is beginning Candidate recruitment for its upcoming elections with a party/mixer at James Beach restaurant on Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 6:00-8:00 PM. The restaurant is located at 60 N. Venice Blvd and all prospective candidates or anyone wishing to learn more about how to get involved in the Venice Neighborhood Council is invited. There is no charge for admission and light refreshments will be served. Members of the current VNC Board along with a representative from City Council District 11 will be present to answer questions.

The members of the Venice Neighborhood Council Board are elected by Venice stakeholders every two years. This year’s election will be on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at Westminster Elementary School. Candidates must qualify as Venice stakeholders. The definition of a stakeholder is someone who lives, works, owns property, or declares a substantial community interest within the Venice Neighborhood Council boundaries.

The filing period begins March 4 and closes on April 3.

We are very interested in attracting candidates who wish to volunteer to help improve the quality of life in Venice and to represent the community to LA City officials and Departments.

Some of the more important recommendations during the current term involved the placement of winter storage lockers for the homeless; the Zip Line at Venice Beach; the approval of a hotel on Abbot Kinney Blvd.; and the placement of bollards on Ocean Front Walk following last summer’s tragic accident. The VNC is also involved in education, the arts, emergency preparedness, parking, environmental concerns, and the impact of 16 million people who visit Venice each year.

There are 95 Neighborhood Councils in Los Angeles and we are proud to say that Venice, while not having the biggest stakeholder base, was still able to turn out the largest number of voters in the City. We hope to expand on it this year.
