I am a 30 year resident of Venice, and along with my recently deceased husband actor Orson Bean, a 52 year Venetian, am a lover of all things Venice. We both received the Spirit of Venice Award “reflecting the spirit, creativity and uniqueness of Venice” and have over the years contributed our time and whatever we could give to help keep the spirit of Venice alive.
The times have recently drastically altered Venice and the values of our beloved community are in flux. Many of us are feeling abandoned and unheard by the City of LA. I want to fight for you and to unite the wonderfully diverse neighborhoods of Venice into one strong, powerful Venice voice.
We need to find solid solutions together that will create the best possible quality of life for everyone living here.
