Sherman Oaks Woman Appointed to L.A.'s Bicycle Committee
"Ayla Stern is a dedicated cyclist who has made the often-challenging choice of living in Los Angeles car-free," Krekorian said in a statement. "Ms. Stern has advocated for improved bicycle access throughout the San Fernando Valley while also working to ensure public safety for women cyclists. She is an effective collaborator with a community-minded approach to policy analysis and a talent for educating the public on bike issues. She will be a great addition to the BAC and a strong and effective voice for the city’s bicyclists.”
In the past, Stern has worked with the Valley Glen Neighborhood Council's Public Safety Committee and The Valley Bikery.
For the record: an earlier version of this story said that there had not been a woman on the committee for at least a decade. There had not been a female appointee from Council District 2 in at least a decade.
