UPDATE: List of dates for neighborhood council elections
Neighborhood Council elections in the City of Los Angeles are just around the corner and Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell is urging constituents in the 13th District to engage in the process.
The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment has set several election dates for the neighborhood councils in the 13th District. A complete list can be found at the bottom of this post.
“As someone who started as a grassroots activist, I strongly encourage you to get involved in the civic process and engage in the neighborhood council elections,” said O’Farrell. “The neighborhood councils provide constituents with the opportunity to become better educated on issues and have a bigger voice in what happens in your own community.”
Neighborhood councils were created by a charter change backed by voters in 1999 and put into place to promote greater public participation in government. Neighborhood Councils also make government more responsive to local needs by giving residents an even larger role in determining the quality of their lives.
O’Farrell urges his constituents to get involved, cast their votes, and take part in the democratic process. Constituents can find more information online.
Elections will take place on the following dates:
