Council District 11 Race Gets Rolling
After complaints at Mayor Sam’s Sister City and the relaunched West L.A. Online blog about the lack of news (and websites) in the LA City Council District 11 race, we have a sudden spate of updates.
First, current 11th District representative Councilmember Cindy Miscikowski, has endorsed Flora Gil Krisiloff to replace her. Krisiloff, former president of the West LA Area Planning Commission, is the chair of the Brentwood Community Council. Miscikowski, who is well-respected for her planning expertise, referenced Krisiloff’s land-use planning and development experience as the main reason for her endorsement.
Krisiloff has also launched her campaign website, though there is no mention of the Miscikowski endorsement yet posted. Candidates Angela Reddock, a Westchester attorney and city commissioner, and Bill Rosendahl, former host of several Adelphia public affairs shows and currently a professor at Cal State Dominguez Hills, have had websites up for quite some time.
Finally, Rosendahl has unveiled a traffic plan for West LA that includes work on at least four light-rail projects, freeway upgrades, and completion of the 405 carpool lane.
The City’s primary election is scheduled for Tuesday, March 8. The last day to register to vote in this election is Tuesday, February 22.
