Venice Update

News of Venice, CA and Marina del Rey CA

VNC Candidates as of 13 April


A few Venice Neighborhood Council candidates were not included in Monday’s Venice Update. As of today, the list is correct, but read the Election Event days below, and note that the list of candidates could still change.

Some of the Election Event dates also could change. There are 47 candidates running for 13 openings for the at-large community officer openings. It appears that one forum could be devoted to just hearing their inputs.

But whether it is a change in the line up or another date for an extra forum, the Venice Update will have the information and will come out with special issues to cover such. It is obvious that this election is important.
