The Glassell Park Neighborhood Council is reconstituting itself after resignations earlier this year left it without a president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer. The council was also short on non-officer members.
The new president is Karin Davalos, who ran her first meeting on Mar. 20. The new vice-president is Brian Frobisher. A secretary, Andrew Ageuro, and a treasurer, David Calvo, were elected at the meeting in March and three at-large vacancies were filled. Currently there are two remaining vacancies for board members to represent Area 5 and Area 7 in the neighborhood.
Ms. Davalos, who attributed the recent turnover to a too-heavy workload, told the Boulevard Sentinel that she is “a big believer in having co-chairs and committees.” She is focusing on encouraging people to attend the meetings and join or form committees. Typical committees on neighborhood councils deal with issues on land use, public safety, public art, the environment and fundraising. “You can make a difference,” she said. “Just come and get involved.”
The GPNC meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Glassell Park Senior Center at 3750 Verdugo Rd. at 7 p.m. The next meeting is on Apr. 17. You can see upcoming and past agendas at: glassellparknc.org.
