District 6 Resident - Chair Community Safety
Julie Casey is a photographer and artist. Since moving to Valley Village 6 years ago, this is the first time in 14 years of living in Los Angeles that Julie has met her neighbors and really felt at home in an actual neighborhood. She especially loves her neighborhood because every day she sees families walking around and kids playing outside without a care in the world. After learning about the Neighborhood Council system in 2016, Julie decided she wanted to participate more in her community and started attending the Greater Valley Glen board meetings. As the new Chair of the Safety Committee, her goal is to establish more Neighborhood Watch groups in the Greater Valley Glen Council area, which will be part of the solution to keeping our neighborhoods safer. Julie & her husband James (who also on the Board) primarily work from home with their 2 dogs (Korben Dallas, an Australian Shepherd & Chikita Banana, a Spaniel mix- both rescues!), who constantly judge their parents because they work in sweatpants all day.
