A board of directors election and a visit from state Assemblyman Richard Bloom brought nearly 80 members of the Park LaBrea Residents Association to its annual meeting on Jan. 10.

Col. Donald Harris, the group’s secretary-treasurer, explained the board of directors election process and distributed ballots to those in attendance. Harris asked candidates to consider three main duties of the position: loyalty, care and active participation.

“Ballots will be counted early next week,” Harris told the crowd of residents, and subsequently reported that all of the incumbents were re-elected.

The slate of candidates for the board included Bernie Clinch, Col. Harris, Solomon Moore, Amy Mucken, Carol Robbins, Jerry Saltman and Marc Sinnott.

Fire Battalion Chief Michael Thomas, who works as a liaison to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, gave a brief presentation on fire safety education and took questions from the audience.

In his annual report to the membership, president Clinch announced, “The elevator modernization program has been completed at no cost to residents.” Clinch says his 2016 goals include vigorous support of the City of Los Angeles Rent Stabilization Ordinance and continued advocacy for members of the 6,000-resident complex.

State Assemblyman Richard Bloom closed the meeting with remarks on his connection to West Los Angeles and the political journey that led to his election as an Assemblymember.

Bloom praised his district director, Josh Kurpies, for his work on constituent affairs, and encouraged attendees to contact his staff with any concerns they may have regarding California state agencies.
