Venice Neighborhood Council Candidate: Thomas Sauer

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? 

Fraud deterrence and prevention in order to reduce abuses of power at the neighborhood and city council levels, Board of Public Works, et al (see Alarcon situation) and Constitutional violations (see LAPD / LA Sheriffs depts) 


Who are your primary supporters? 

We - the people - of our great CITY OF VENICE! 


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

See above - whatever changes are necessary to enfore common decency - regardless the political cost.  New blood could be a good thing - very nice to see all the entrants into the election. 


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

Financial compensation does not matter (bribes have been rebuffed, corruption will no longer be tolerated). Over the years we have enabled ourselves to become independent in fact and appearance - openness, transparency, and accountability are key (and sorely lacking at the neighborhood level, community level, city level) these persons and groups know who they are.  Some are even running for office.  Change is coming...


Thomas Sauer is running for one of 13 open positions as a Community Officer on the Venice Neighborhood Council. To read more candidate profiles, click here.

What are your views on the Santa Monica Airport? 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?
