West Hollywood West Residents Association (WHWRA), a nonprofit organization comprised of residents living in the West Hollywood West community in the City of West Hollywood, had board elections on Tuesday. According to a newsletter, some long time members stepped down, the board got a bit of a shuffle and several residents became first time board members.
The meeting was well attended by Weho West neighbors. Resident candidates spoke about how much they love living in the WeHo West community and how they hoped to advocate for its continued success and good quality of life.
After serving two terms, Norwich Drive resident Leslie Karliss stepped down as President of the board, but was voted in as the new Vice President. “It’s been wonderful serving with all of you,” she said. “We’ve kept the neighborhood informed, held community meetings and hosted our city council candidate forums. We’ve also advocated for the neighborhood about matters affecting public safety, traffic, noise, and development. And of course, we’ve organized our annual [National Night Out] party. As a group, I believe we’ve accomplished a lot”.
Long time board member and Huntley Drive resident Eric d’Arbeloff was elected the new WHWRA President.
The new WHWRA Board of Directors are:
President Eric d’Arbeloff, VP Leslie Karliss, Treasurer Daniel Banchik, Secretary Patrick Shandrick, Board Members Midge Barnett, Yeon Brack, Jonathan Finestone, Paul Hanneman, Matthew Louchheim, Kimberly Winick.
The new board begins serving on January 1, 2024 for two year terms.
