On Wednesday, June 12 our newly elected Van Nuys Neighborhood Council Board was sworn in by City Council Member Paul Krekorian who also brought us an update from City Hall and took questions. Among his notable news was that City Council has banned discrimination for rentals on the basis of the tenant having a Section 8 Voucher. It is hoped that this step will accelerate housing for the homeless.
The Board then elected new officers and filled two vacant seats. We welcome new members:
Riguey Mercado, At-Large Resident Representative Zone 1 (2021)
Sandy Moreno, Non-Profit #1 Representative (2021)
Three vacant seats remain. We invite qualified candidates to apply with this VNNC Boardmember Application. Please email your application by June 27, 5pm.

- At large commercial business owner or employee Seat 2 & Seat 4
Our new Officers are:
- Sam Woolf, President
- Michael Browning, Vice President
- Veronica Marin, Treasurer

Existing board members were thanked for their service with certificates by our elected officials.
