Preparation for 2014 Neighborhood Council Elections

Letter from the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, 10/16/2013:

Dear Historic Cultural Neighborhood Council,

Hope all is well.

Please put the two following agenda items on your October or November agenda.

You are in Region 6-Central 2 and your region will be having elections on April 3rd. The selection of the Election/Outreach chairs and the approval of the Elections Stipulation Sheet will need to be done by November 22, 2013.

Please read below for more information:

Mayor Eric Garcetti opened Neighborhood Council Elections Season with a challenge during his keynote speech at the Congress of Neighborhoods, calling on NC Board Members to pursue greater stakeholder engagement during the 2014 Neighborhood Council Elections and to increase voter turnout at the polls. He even promised to swear in the Board that has the best increase in community participation during the elections.

EmpowerLA followed up on the Mayor’s challenge with three workshops at the Congress of Neighborhoods that focused on Elections and Outreach and featured Holly Wolcott, LA’s Interim City Clerk, and her Elections team plus the EmpowerLA Elections Team.

Isaias Cantu and Christopher Garcia will be representing the City Clerk’s Office during election season and will be responsible for Candidate filing, Vote-by-Mail, Ballot production, Voter registration, and Polling Supply production.

Glenn Bailey and Jose Galdamez will be representing EmpowerLA during election season and will be responsible for Independent Election Administrators, Outreach, Communications, Candidate Workshops, Volunteers, and Polling Place operations.

EmpowerLA and the City Clerk will both be doing what they do best, resulting in a commitment to making the 2014 Elections the best yet, rising to meet the Mayor’s challenge and to exceed expectations along the way.

The immediate next steps for Neighborhood Councils are simple:

1) Select an Elections Chair and an Outreach Chair and fill out the Liaison Form with their contact information.

2) Fill out the Election Procedures Stipulation Worksheet and submit it so the City Clerk and EmpowerLA can get to work organizing the Neighborhood Council elections.

3) Join EmpowerLA at the upcoming Leadership Academy Workshops where the Elections Team will feature Outreach and Communications and the Field Staff will be presenting Emergency Preparedness plans.

Saturday, October 19 – Valley – 8am – Marvin Braude Building – 6262 Van Nuys Blvd., Van Nuys, CA
Tuesday, October 29 – East – 6pm – Glassel Park Community Center – 3750 N Verdugo Road, LA., 90065
Saturday, November 2 – Central – 1pm – Hollywood Constituent Center, 6501 Fountain Ave., Hollywood , CA
Thursday, November 7 – West LA – 6pm – TBA
Saturday, November 16 – Harbor – 8am – TBA
Saturday, November 23 – South LA – 8am – TBA

To register for any of the workshops, please go to: www.surveymonkey.com/s/WinterDS2013 or call (213) 978-1551. Please see attached flyer

4) Connect with the Neighborhood Councils in your region and organize an Outreach Committee that can connect with EmpowerLA and get started on communicating your regional voice.

If you have any questions or comments or ideas or just want to chat, email Elections@EmpowerLA.org or call 818-293-VOTE (8683).

To: Sandra Mendoza
Subject: Sat, April 18!

Dear Neighborhood Council Board Members:

I would like to introduce myself to you all. My name is Sandra Mendoza and I am the NC Project Coordinator from the City Clerk – Election Division’s office who will likely be corresponding with you about your 2010 NC Elections. Though the date sounds far away, with all “by the book” processes, considering how often NC meetings occur, and taking into consideration how long yet to be determined policies and actions will take – you will have to trust me that we are kicking this off at the right time.

On the attached flyer are some very important dates for the next couple of months. The dates are for a series of meetings that will shape the policies and the decision making process for how the City Clerk will implement your 2010 Elections. I encourage, highly recommend, urge you…dont know how else to plea…to attend the policy making process for the NC Elections, at the very least – I ask that your NC assign board members to attend and participate on behalf of your council. This invite is not limited to committees, and/or e-board, this is an open invite to those interested in the development of NC Election Procedures. The meetings schedule has been widely distributed (mostly electronically) through DONE or the City Clerk’s office during the past month. This is a reminder and a personal appeal to please become involved.

The topics will be different each time. The discussions will be open to all, but available for the allotted dates only, as we need to move the entire election process forward. There are many election-related items to cover. Please join the NC EDG (NC Election Development Group). Those NCs participating will largely weigh-in on the shaping of the Election Procedures Policies for 2010.

In the meantime, below is a link to the some of the documents we are working on:
http://cityclerk.lacity.org/election/ncdocs/website.pdf
…this might help prepare for this coming Saturday’s meeting.

Lastly, please share this information with other board members/stakeholders who may not have received this email.

As always, if you have any questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone 213.978.0444 or via email: sandra.mendoza@lacity.org.

I look forward to eventually meeting all of you (if I havent met you already) and to a successful 2010 NC Election cycle….but for now, I am looking forward to your participation this coming

the initial term length for each seat; 1, 2 or 3 years.
From now on every term will last 3 years.

 

CANDIDATES:

A 250-word statement may be included if the candidate wishes that information be made public prior to the election.

(A candidate can appear as a “write-in” if their form is received after the above deadline but before the polls close, however it is doubtful that forms received on the election day could be verified in time for that candidate to be listed.)
