Candidate Statement for Chris Lim

Posted on

Chris Lim is running for District D Representative. See his statement below.

“Ten years ago I tried to convince my wife to move to Silver Lake; she prevailed, and we landed in Los Feliz instead. I count myself lucky.  In my opinion, Los Feliz is the very best neighborhood in the very best city in the United States. First, there is wonderful amount of diversity here: old and new, rich and poor, as well as an invigorating range of cultural, racial, and religious difference. Second, Los Feliz is one of the precious few walking neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Finally, we have this stunningly beautiful physical environment to enjoy with its sublime architecture, hulking park, and perfect weather.

In the ten years since my family first moved into a District D fourplex on Avocado Street, we have sunk roots. My wife and I purchased a house just around the corner on Commonwealth Avenue—still in District D—and our daughter recently started kindergarten at Franklin Elementary. My ties continue to grow even stronger. Soon I plan to open a law practice and hope to locate my office here in the neighborhood.

While Los Feliz is certainly wonderful in its current form, I am sure that we can collectively make it an even better place to live, work, and visit. For instance, I would like to see more bicycle lanes and neighborhood beautification projects as well as improved mass transportation to the neighborhood. It is also important that future real estate development occur sensibly. Finally, I hope that city policy will encourage and not hinder the development of our local businesses.

I see the Neighborhood Council as an important instrument to navigate the inevitable changes our neighborhood must face. To some degree, Los Feliz’s success is also its curse, since real estate developers and other forms of commercial money are eager to have their new projects sited here. In Los Angeles, like most places, money buys access. This problem will surely become even more pronounced post-Citizens United. Even before that awful US Supreme Court decision, it cost more to run for an LA City Council seat than for Congress. The upshot is that our locally elected municipal leaders owe plenty of political favors to their well-heeled donors. The Neighborhood Council is one counterweight to big money. It is with this relationship in mind that I hope to become a Los Feliz Neighborhood Council District D Representative.”

Thank you Chris!
