Standing Room Only at CD13 Candidate Forum


CD13 candidate forum (John Cotter)
An enthusiastic crowd packed the Mayberry Elementary School Auditorium on February 27 to hear candidates for Council District 13 state their positions on community issues and concerns. Hosted by the Silver Lake, Atwater Village, Echo Park, and Rampart Village Neighborhood Councils, the forum was moderated by Allison Cohen, publisher of the Los Feliz Ledger, and Kirk Hawkins, KTLA 5 News. SLNC Co-chair Anne-Marie Johnson said, “The attendees were highly engaged but respectful, and the forum was an outstanding example of democracy in action.”  This was the first time in its 13-year existence that the SLNC partnered with nearby neighborhood councils to provide a forum for residents to participate in the electoral process.
