As an urban planner, I am running for Neighborhood Council to make a more equitable, engaged Los Feliz.

Expertise

Urban planning professional: As a professional transportation researcher with a master's in urban planning from UCLA, having a passion for—and experience in—housing, transit, and the environment is literally my job.

Experience

City government know-how: I have worked for the City of Los Angeles and three other local governments. I know how city government runs and how to make change.

Organizing experience: I have built coalitions leading campaigns for mobility justice, transit equity, immigration sanctuary policies, and progressive candidates.

Enthusiasm

Already hard at work for Los Feliz: As an active member of four Neighborhood Council committees, I am already working to make positive change for Los Feliz.

I've written and gotten passed resolutions on improving rent control, making Metro fare-free, and responding compassionately to homelessness.

 

I will work for a vibrant Los Feliz open, safe, and accessible to all, especially our most vulnerable neighbors.

Mobility

Safer streets:

  • Permanent Slow Streets

  • Marked crosswalks and flashing beacons at dangerous intersections

Transit and parking:

  • Free Metro and DASH

  • Ending off-street parking requirements that raise the cost of new housing

Housing

Aid for renters:

  • Pandemic rental assistance

  • Tenants' right to counsel

  • Full pandemic eviction defense​

More affordable housing and services:

  • Zoning reform to allow for more units

  • Greater affordability requirements

  • Services for unhoused neighbors, not criminalization

Representation

District B has more people and jobs than the other districts, but the same number of seats. I will fix that and get fair representation for our district,

I will also work to add a seat to the Council representing unhoused residents.
