Neighborhood council candidates prepare for Oct. 6 election

Who would want to run for neighborhood council? The positions are unpaid and council members have to sit through long and sometimes unruly meetings. The  resolutions they pass and the positions they adopt are often ignored and frequently met with criticism and ridicule. However, the city’s network of neighborhood councils continue to attract veteran activists and newcomers. In fact, more than 100 candidates filed to run in the Oct. 6 elections for the neighborhood councils representing Atwater Village,  Angeleno Heights, Echo Park, Elysian Heights, Elysian Valley, Historic Filipinotown, Los Feliz, and Silver Lake.

A second round of elections  will be held for such neighborhoods as Boyle Heights, Eagle Rock and Highland Park. But first things first. Click on the link below for information about the Oct. 6 neighborhood council elections and upcoming candidate forums:
