Heather Repenning of Los Feliz has been nominated by Mayor Eric Garcetti to serve on the Metropolitan Water District Board of Directors. Repenning's appointment comes about six months after she lost to Jackie Goldberg in the District 5 school board race. She has long-standing ties to Garcetti, having worked for him as director of external affairs and as one of his appointees on the Board of Public Works. If her appointment is confirmed by the City Council, Repenning would replace outgoing board member and Silver Lake resident Glen Dake.
The 82-year-old Echo Park man who went missing on Monday has been found and reunited with his family, says the LAPD. Seang Hoc, who is suffering from Alzheimer's, was found by police in Atwater Village, his family said in a posting on NextDoor.
