November 12, 2019:
3 directors seats are up for election and 2 alternates.
Lake Los Angeles Park Association- is building a wonderful community and regional park with Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation and Los Angeles County Regional Parks and Open Spaces . Who is the LLAPA? You are the LLAPA- well, if you pay the LLAD2Z45 you are - look on your tax receipt. People lately like to complain about many things. They want life to be better. They are looking for Superman or the Tooth Fairy to come in and do it for them. It is time for you to be your own Super Person.
There are many ideas going forward, and many ideas that have not been heard. When you serve as a Director, you serve a two year position.
If you want to run or not, there is a great amount of information on the LLAPA web page. You are also welcome to come to the meeting to share ideas.
For more info- https://www.lakelapark.org
The annual election is this Tuesday , November 12, 2019 at 6:00pm in the Community Room. If you live in the neighborhoods of Lake LA, check the tax papers you just got in the mail.
Sorensen Park is funded in park by the LLAD2z45. The Lake Los Angeles Park Board is elected to oversee that account. Los Angeles Public Works administers the account.
To vote for a board member or serve on the board, you need to bring a copy of your tax papers to verify your eligibility.
We are always searching for and in need of good hearted, honest, knowledgeable, friendly, peaceful people- and all sorts of combinations of the above.
Unfortunately so far, few have submitted papers of intent. If there are fewer applications than opening on the board , we will continue the meeting and welcome the members on board. If there are more applicants, we will have the election as usual.
You are welcome to come whether you are in the neighborhoods, own property , or are an interested observer. On issues rather than those related to the LLAD2Z45, you vote and help give direction to the LLAPA
