ALBERT ANDRADE- At-Large Representative; Board Secretary; Ad Hoc Committee on Police Reform Co-Chair
My name is Albert and I have served the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council as Asst. Secretary and Election Committee Co-Chair. I’m also a native Los Angeleno, 2nd-gen immigrant, and renter who ran for this board seat because I love Silver Lake and I want to help our neighborhood emerge from this pandemic stronger and more equitable for all. Through the Transportation & Safety Committee, I wrote a letter to City Council & Mayor Eric Garcetti urging them to return to relaxed parking enforcement because no one should be forced to decide between a parking ticket or their own health. It is crucial we advance accessible COVID vaccine sites in our community so that has been a priority of mine. As a survivor of a college shooting, I know first-hand how crucial it is to reimagine public safety for all. I also aim to expand Spanish-language accessibility so everyone can have a voice in our community.
