DAVID SHAFER – Region 6 Representative
I am a native Los Angeleno and a 12-year resident of District 6, Silver Lake. I really love this community; yeah, there are things that can be questioned, but overall there’s a great spirit and foundation to work from. As a historian (chair of the History department at CSULB), I really appreciate Silver Lake’s contributions to Los Angeles, its creative impulses, and its rich cultural diversity.
While the NC is a largely advisory board, it is the platform for expressing community desires and encouraging local initiatives. I hope to be part of the NC that recaptures and taps into the energy, vibrancy, and creativity of our community as we (hopefully) soon navigate through the post-Covid future.
