The Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council’s annual election will be taking place next Thursday, April 29th at the Highland Park Recreation Center, 6150 Piedmont Avenue. Janet Dodson, who is running for one of the eight At-Large Director positions, has asked us to spread the word about the election as well as her Nueva Vida slate of candidates. Ms. Dodson describes the group thusly:
This slate includes community veteranos, the as-yet-unjaded, business owners, and residents. We all share the understanding that only by organizing, does any community develop the political power needed to get attention from the City. We are all ready to work hard together to make sure Highland Park is not ignored, especially as we begin to face the coming financial cuts.
We have plans to be sleek and efficient, and we especially want to invite everybody, and groups, and organizations to come to the Neighborhood Council to tell us their plans and needs. We see ourselves as conduits to Huizar and Reyes.
Highland Park has begun to wake up. We have been under-represented for too long.
You can find their voter guide, but to make up your own mind, stop by the candidate forum this Thursday at 6:30 PM at the Franklin High cafeteria. To read candidate statements, determine if you’re eligible to vote, and find out more about the election, check out the election website.
