Ginny-Marie Case, still the current VP of outreach for the DLANC board because of the ongoing challenge to the election (which the City Clerk should rule on by Tuesday), passes on a letter from DONE about the election and the overdue budget:

As you well know by now, the Downtown Los Angeles NC received an NC Election Challenge to the election held on June 12, 2008, conducted by the Office of the City Clerk. Per the DLANC Election Procedures, the City Clerks Office will issue the Final Election Report on Tuesday July 15, 2008.

In accordance with the DLANC Election Procedures, Article XVIII, Seating of Newly Elected Board Members, Section A., states that the following:

“Newly elected governing board members will not be seated pending the final results of a recount or resolution of all election challenges. The incumbent board members will continue in their duly elected/appointed positions until the election challenges are resolved.”

Lastly, please be advised that the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE) have not received DLANC 2008-09 Budget that was originally due on June 13, 2008. We understand due to the June NC Elections, DLANC did not have the opportunity to finalize and submit the budget. At this time it is strongly suggested that the current board have a Regular or Special Board Meeting to approve the budget, and include a clause stating, “subject to revision by newly elected 2008-09 Board Members.

Whatever the Neighborhood Council wishes to move forward with, please be sure to follow process you have used in the past, such as posting the agenda at regular locations, website, etc., all of course in compliance with the Brown Act.

I’ve attached a copy of DLANC’s Election Procedures. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have.

So keep your eyes open for a special Board meeting, with the old board members.

Outgoing Vice President of Communication and Outreach Ginny-Marie Case passes on the news that ANT, the former “Last Comic Standing” contestant who was announced as the winner of the Fashion District Resident seat, has withdrawn because he doesn’t actually live within the Fashion District boundaries. He reportedly lives in the Eastern Columbia building, which is in Historic Downtown.

I’ve also heard rumors that Robert Lockhart is contesting General Jeff’s election as Central City East Resident. Update: Here is Robert’s challenge to the election of General Jeff, Wendell Blassingame, and Antoinette Falice.
