Attorney

Background:

Anthony grew up in the west San Fernando Valley and am now raising my own family here as well.  He have spent my career working as a local government attorney, and continue to serve at a local agency in Los Angeles. Throughout the years I have enjoyed many trips to the Winnetka Bowling Alley, a burger at Daglas, thrift hunting at the Goodwill, or trips to Morales Tacos on Sherman Way.  Throughout the years, he have also patronized many other establishments in the neighborhood.  He also lived in Winnetka and my family continues to live in the neighborhood, so he is very familiar with and fond of the community.  His  children also attend school in Winnetka, and so the well-being of the community remains a top priority to me

Goals:

To work to improve Winnetka parks and explore opportunities with the community to hold more public events at our wonderful parks facilities.  I will also work with local officials and the community to secure funding and upgrades for our local parks.  In addition, Anthony keenly interested in public safety issues related in the community and identifying ways in which the Neighborhood Council can work with first responders and other officials to continue to enhance the safety of our community.
