We believe that talk is cheap and that the VNC needs leaders who can unite our community and work together to achieve results. We are a group of candidates who have demonstrated the ability to work together to create the change they want to see.

Let’s restore our quality of life in Venice together.

  • We believe in holding the City accountable for its actions (or lack thereof). We believe our Council member for CD11 has been unable to meet the challenges facing our district and community, and that the greatest opportunity to effect change will be uniting behind an alternative candidate that respects and listens to our Neighborhood Council.

  • We believe in supporting LAPD and keeping our neighborhood safe, clean, and free of crime. We believe Venice should be safe for children to walk and play. We believe in the rights of residents--renters and homeowners--to be safe and secure in their homes and when they walk the streets.

  • We believe in common sense solutions to address the homeless crisis by immediately creating emergency shelters on suitable, unused city properties, enforcing the law to make our streets clean and safe, while giving the unhoused a dignified pathway off the streets.

  • We believe in supporting our local businesses and that we should be helping our small businesses thrive. We support our small local businesses and a local workforce.

  • We believe that people who live in Venice have property rights and they should be able to exercise them.  We are not pro-development; we are not anti-development. We believe in a common-sense approach that considers both socioeconomic benefits and environmental consequences of development in the community.

  • We believe in protecting the environment and that we should be able to protect and use our open spaces, including and use our most precious resource: the beach.

  • We believe in smart, responsible development so that people who work in Venice should be able to live in Venice. We believe in the creation of new affordable and middle class housing that can lower barriers to entry for renting and homeownership. We support scalable, sustainable and economically feasible solutions that don’t drain our limited resources and produce the desired results.
