I was really inspired by a meetup in downtown Los Angeles about how our neighborhood council could bring technology companies to the city in constructive ways. GOOD member and friend http://www.good.is/members/audreybellis took me, but because I don't live in downtown, I couldn't get involved in the council. So I looked up my council and it turns out their election is April 12 in Los Feliz. So I'm voting. I'm going to read up on candidates beforehand, see how they want to make our neighborhood better, then eventually join meetings. You can find out how to get involved in your council. I used social network http://www.nextdoor.com to get some info from active members of my community. Read this awesome series from KPCC to get some insight about how neighborhood councils can move cities forward.
