In an obvious effort to kick off the new Studio City Neighborhood Council without controversy, the new members of the council didn't try to stage a coup in trying to unseat any of the officers of this council—one of the most active and most well-known in all of Los Angeles.
When new board member Steven Quat nominated new member Lawrence Beer for the Corresponding Secretary position, and then longtime member Lisa Sarkin nominated Jane Drucker, who has had the position for the last few years, Beer opted out of the nomination and withdrew his name.
"Oh, I thought we were going to have a contested race for a change," said John Walker, who was re-elected unanimously as president. "I encourage that."
But, Drucker was re-seated in her position unanimously.
The council meets at the CBS Studios Radford lot on the third Wednesday of the month beginning at 7 p.m. and there is often food provided by a local restaurant. Click here for the schedule of the board meeting, the agenda and other committee meetings: http://studiocitync.org
