At Large Board Member

In 2002 I bought a home in Valley Glen on Ranchito Avenue, where I resided for 12 years. I have so many fond memories of my neighborhood that now, as a Realtor, I specifically work to serve and represent my former neighbors. It is a special area for me. I had to move out because my elderly mother moved in with me, so I needed a larger home. I hope one day to move back. Until that time, it's my strong desire to give back to the community I loved so well.

As a founding member of the original Community Council in Valley Glen, I have worked over twenty years in making the Valley Glen community the best in the San Fernando Valley. As the neighborhood has grown and evolved, I want to continue to make this a welcoming community for new families, businesses and surrounding neighbors. Together, with the Greater Valley Glen Council, we CAN make this community the best in the Valley.

      I've owned my home in Valley Glen for over 30 years and with my wife Bettylou raised my two sons in this neighborhood, I have a vested interest in keeping our area the quaint, single family community we want to maintain. I am highly qualified to represent my community. As host of the 3 time EMMY winning series Between the Lines on PBS I comfortably deal and connect with all types of people from celebrities to politicians to business professionals. I’m also the Producer/Director for L.A. PBS station KLCS-TV, I own my own Production company, and I'm Chairman of the Board of LA City Channel 36. I'm also very proud to be a recipient of the 2019 Ellis Island Medal of Honor. Past medalists include seven U.S. presidents, world leaders, Nobel Prize winners and countless leaders of industry, education, the arts, government, who made freedom, liberty and compassion a part of their life's work. I look forward to representing this great community. Thank you for this opportunity

            District 6 Resident, Community Safety Chair

            I have lived in the Laurel Grove neighborhood since 2003. Over time, I have grown increasingly concerned about traffic safety for our community. I would use my seat on the council to advocate for an additional pedestrian crosswalk or traffic signal between Whitsett and Laurel Canyon on Oxnard, and a DASH route linking the Orange Line with major shopping plazas in our district including the upcoming NoHo West Development. In addition, I would investigate ways to expand community programming at Valley College and also Valley Glen and Laurel Grove parks. Our neighborhood has the potential to grow significantly in the next few years, and I would work to ensure we continue to maintain and enhance our parks, trees and public spaces as a precious resource for all community members. In order for Greater Valley Glen to thrive, we must have meaningful relationships with all City Departments to ensure our needs are being met.

            District 6 Resident, TREASURER

            I want to put my political science degree to work and apply my experience in both the legal and political fields and get to work for our community. My first priority is to bring the resources we need to Greater Valley Glen and to be a voice for our community. I'm a Fordham University graduate and I have an avid interest in government. When I moved from New York to California, I spent considerable time working for Congresswoman Sanchez in Orange County, where I gained valuable insight into working with Federal, State, and local governments on behalf of everyone we represent. Considerable resources are being spent around and near us, and some of those funds need to come our way to address our own local needs and concerns. I want to build Relationships with the surrounding Neighborhood Councils so that together we can help address getting pedestrian crosswalks, bike lanes, a stronger law enforcement presence, as well as green energy initiatives.
