eigible to vote.  The winner will replace board member William Lander who moved away.  The Neighborhood Council is the community's voice at City Hall and Councilman Mitch Englander's office.


The Neighborhood Council asks "friends, neighbors, family members and anyone else you know to come vote."


A stakeholder is anyone who works, lives, owns property, declares a stake in the community, or boards a horse in Chatsworth. A stakeholder does not have to be registered to vote in regular city, state or federal elections to qualify as a voter in the Special Election.


Each candidate will have a few minutes to introduce himself and explain why he wishes  to join the board. A short question and answer period will follow. Voting will begin after the last candidate has given his presentation.


Voters may need to fill out a new stakeholder registration form to vote, even if they've done the same for previous CNC elections. Ballots will be counted at the meeting and the winner will be announced.  The successful candidate will be seated immediately.


Board members are asked to serve on one or two committees. The land use committee is at capacity. Other committees are: outreach, beautification, equestrian, public safety and transportation, and enhancements.


The Chatsworth Neighborhood Council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Lawrence Middle School, 10100 Variel Avenue. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
