WHAT: Meet City Council Candidate Eric Preven
WHEN: Monday, March 2, from 4 – 6 PM
WHERE: The Federal Bar 5303 Lankershim Blvd.
Why are you running for a seat in City Council District 2?
Residents of CD2 deserve a choice on the ballot and as a 29 year resident of the area I will fight for the public’s best interest — not the billboard companies and other special interests.
What’s your background?
I’ve been living in Studio City since 1985, working as a daytime television producer and later as a TV writer and screenwriter. My work as an independent producer, where I acquired skills managing large budgets, led me to launch foreign language adaptations of hit U.S. series in the Middle East, South America and Russia. I continue to work as an entertainment industry consultant today.
Why would you be a good candidate for the NoHo Arts District?
I’ve been widely recognized for my work fighting government corruption at the county and city levels in LA. In the past five years, my work has been covered by the LA times, The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Magazine, LA Weekly, Which Way LA? and So Cal Connected.
How would you fight to keep the arts alive in the arts district?
I will bring fiscal responsibility to City Hall that will result in the better use of existing resources and the possibility of sponsoring more arts programs that will contribute to NOHO’s awesome burgeoning arts community.
