This brief 3-1/2 minute What It Means To Be A Candidate Video is a great introduction to running for a seat on our council.

 

If you are at least 14 years old AND live, work, own property, own a business, go to school, worship, or belong to an organization in the UNNC area, you can be a candidate.

UNNC is an elected board of 23 people who care about the community, representing our neighborhoods to LA City Council, agencies, departments and other elected representatives.

UNNC helps make decisions about trees, parks and green space, youth and community activities, keeping neighborhoods clean and safe, helping bring beneficial shopping and business services to our area, maintain our historic neighborhoods, and gives members of the community a voice in making decisions. Our goal is community improvement through civic engagement.

Candidates should be available to attend our monthly General and Board meetings and be active in at least one committee.

Learn more about joining us and running for a seat by coming to a meeting, reading the Neighborhood Council Candidate Information Guide, and reviewing this website.
