Nisa Kove Selected as New Venice Field Deputy


VENICE, CA (February 16, 2020) – City Councilmember Mike Bonin today announced the hiring of Nisa Kove as Venice Field Deputy, a position that will allow Kove to work with her neighbors in Venice to get things done in the neighborhood she has called home for more than a decade.

“I am excited to work with Nisa and to have a Venice parent on staff, working with me and our team to make the community a great place to live, work and enjoy,” said Bonin. “Nisa has been active in civic life in Venice and will hit the ground running on day one to start delivering for neighbors in Venice.”

Kove has been a Venice resident since 2007 and has worked closely with many of the leaders and groups in Venice as an elected member of the Venice Neighborhood Council, and as chair of the council’s Public Safety Committee. Kove has a long and accomplished history in marketing, having worked for a number of major media and advertising companies, and she has also worked as an organizer for a group dedicated to the engagement and mobilization of school parents. Kove is passionate about education, and is an active volunteer in her neighborhood schools, working with local artists and environmental organizations to beautify campuses. Kove is a graduate of the University of Arizona.

“I am honored to be representing my community,” said Kove. “There is a lot of work to do, and I’m confident that together, we can lead Venice into a new decade of optimism, unity, and trust.”

Kove, who will resign her position on the Venice Neighborhood Council to take the job with Team Bonin, will start work on Tuesday, February 18. She will partner with Tristen Marler, who handles constituent casework in Venice, and Allison Wilhite, who is Bonin’s point person on the bridge housing set to open in Venice February 25.
