Neighborhood Council Election Results Are In

The unofficial tally is in and available from the City Clerk’s Election Division. Click this link (.pdf) and check the Region C results for the 11 neighborhood councils that held elections Thursday.

Congratulations to everyone who participated, especially to those whose heady task of empowering their communities lay head.

You can check the individual NCs on the city clerk’s website, but we wanted to share with you the turnout figures from across the east and west Valley showing that nearly 2,000 residents from just 11 communities voted in this round of elections.

  1. Hello NC’s and Paul Krekorian:

    Thanks for posting info for all to view. Looking at the NC voter turnout, similar to Sunland_Tujunga, seems very low as compared to the general population of each city. Studio City is the highest by a factor of 3, but all others hover near 200, and NOHO as low as 41. Studio City for example, pop of 40,000 and 80% are 25 and older – I would expect at least 5-10% involvement/interest. Is word just not getting out, folks just not interested, councils ineffective, or combination of all three? What do you think?

  2. Studio City’s turnout was so high due to opposition to the RFA. Nothing like a litte controversy to get out the voters. The fact that a group of newcomers captured 40% of the vote in the homeowner catagory while going up against long time incumbent candidates is significant. While SCNC won’t back down from their position on the RFA, it goes to show they don’t represent everyone. Only those in control.

  3. Yes–I “won” a Board position in Van Nuys–and with 6 or 7 open positions, 52 voters, our 3 “loyal critics” in the audience abandoning us–I feel like I’ve won season tickets for the LA Clippers.

    Lost opportunities, lost issues, and defensive “I don’t want to lose my seat” politics–and there’s nothing left.
    Van Nuys turns l00 years old–a ceremony? No, the Councilman’s aide says–“Perhaps we can put up some photos in VN City Hall or the Braude.”

  4. Thank you, Councilman Krekorian, for helping “get the word out” on the NC elections. As an active committee member of SCNC Outreach, I can assure the public our group was pro-active during this election process. A marketing plan and budget was in place that allowed for flyers to be distributed by Walking Man, a postcard mailer, 2 full page ads (May 25/May 27) in the Daily News, a sponsorship box on the Daily News home page (ran May 21-27, 24/7) and a lot of grass-roots activities (blogging, SCNC website, hand-outs at SC Farmers Market, etc.). We worked with 10 of the 11 NC’s Outreach delegates to accomplish cost savings on the Daily News pieces and share “best practices”. I welcome the opportunity to be involved with your team and the Mayor’s office to improve community outreach for the NCs.
