Delaphine Carlisle is a candidate for Historic Downtown Business Director.

I respectfully request consideration as a Business Director for the Historic Downtown area.

I am excited to be a part of the positive changes taking place in Downtown and I feel that I can contribute to this positive growth.

Thanks you for your consideration.

Patti Berman is running for Historic Downtown Resident director.

Almost seven years ago I made a major life change of moving to 4th and Main, Los Angeles. After much research I had chosen The Old Bank District to call home. And it’s been an exciting venture from day one. New neighbors! New attitudes! New opportunities!

My initial outreach here was to volunteer as a math tutor with School on Wheels, which grew into active partnering in the Big Sisters program, and varied volunteer actions with the Neighborhood Council. For five years, I chaired the Historic Core Neighborhood Block Grant which provided funds for small businesses starting up in the area. We were able to help many art galleries and other new businesses with façade improvements, interior renovations and signage. Block grants also made it possible to put over 200 trees on the streets of the Historic Core and pedestrian lighting to make our streets safer. I am currently chair of the PROS (Parks, Recreation, and Open Space) Committee for DLANC.

Personally, I enjoy the cultural and entertainment diversity of downtown Los Angles. I like being part of the change in our neighborhood and our city. The challenge started on day one and has only become more exciting as residential and business enhancements have occurred. I’m a strong proponent of using public transportation around downtown — using my alternative energy auto only for necessary trips. I share my loft with two cats, friends and music.

Professionally I’m (1) a consultant who designs software applications; (2) a singer/lyricist who spent many years traveling the American night club circuit; and (3) a licensed scuba instructor with international credentials.

Seven years ago I came downtown and stayed. Now I want the opportunity to serve my neighborhood even further as a member of the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council — continuing as a part of the new attitude and new opportunities.
