Kate Brandt is running for District B representative. See her statement below.
“I’ve been a resident of vibrant, beautiful Los Feliz for almost eight years, and an enthusiastic supporter of our parks, restaurants, businesses and schools for even longer. I believe that an informed, engaged citizenry begins with high-quality education, and that a community thrives when we collaborate and communicate with each other. In this era of globalization and new urbanism, Los Angeles has unique economic, cultural and infrastructure challenges and strengths. Water use, smart development, historic preservation, parking, traffic safety, helicopter noise, homelessness, recreational space, neighborhood representation at City Hall and creative ways to involve people in our community are some of the areas in which I’d like to help make a positive difference. The LFNC is our opportunity to think globally and act locally – for our city, the environment and the future.
My progressive, civic-minded beliefs are grounded in our country’s founding ideals of participatory democracy, justice and a government of, by and for the people. My interest in public service began with participation in high school and college student government, and continues with my charitable and corporate board involvement. I recently participated in the Board Leadership Program at Warner Bros., which supports executives in serving on the boards of nonprofit organizations; I’m on the Brain Trust of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media; as a board member of OUT@Warner Bros., I work closely with our community partner, the Youth Center on Highland, which serves homeless and at-risk LGBT youth; and I recently began working with the nonprofit Girls Who Code. I’ve learned a great deal about working effectively and diplomatically with many different kinds of people and personalities, and I enjoy helping to create synergy among individuals and groups with shared goals, so that the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. I would be honored to represent Los Feliz on the LFNC.”
Thank you Kate!
