Venice Neighborhood Council Candidate: Lisa Green

Patch asked the VNC candidates a few questions to help voters decide in the Oct. 28 election.

Editor’s note: This is one of several articles in a series of profiles on Venice candidates.

What would you prioritize if you were voted in?

1) Public health and safety for all members of the Venice community.

2) Repair/Replace/Improve the degradation of infrastructure including inadequate sanitation, waste management and environmental protections.

3) Lack of resources to insure a livable community which honors an intimate connection between our rights as individuals, and our responsibilities to our neighbors, our community and the earth.


Who are your primary supporters? 

I have a variety of supporters across Venice from founding families of Venice that worked with Abbot Kinney, to artists and small business owners on and off the Boardwalk, as well as many of those defined as "homeless" because I see myself in everyone. For me each is a reciprocal relationship.


What issue do you feel most strongly about and what’s your position? 

Currently much of my focus has been on finding healthy and effective ways to address misuse of power within our culture at many levels.


What's one thing most constituents don't know about you? 

 Not sure because I am an open book.


Why did you decide to run?

I want to continue to be part of the solution that brings about peace, and harmony  on earth. I am an artist and will continue to offer my abilities to find our way back to love which is the true superpower.

I hope public health and safety includes the Santa Monica Airport? What are your views ? It is a huge concern for many that live under the flight path. The noise and pollution and not to mention safety issues. We want it closed in 2015 when the lease expires. WIl you join the fight?
