The La Brea-Hancock Homeowners’ Association, which represents the area between Wilshire Blvd., La Brea Ave., 3rd Street and Citrus Ave., has said goodbye to a longtime leader and elected a new group of board members and officers.

At its meeting on Sunday, March 4, the group elected (or, in most cases, re-elected) 14 board members, and said a formal goodbye to outgoing President Barbara Savage, who has led the association since 2012. (Savage is also a former longtime member of the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council, and has had a number of other fascinating careers.)

Last  night, on Tuesday, March 20, the new LBHHA board held its first meeting and elected new officers.

Leading the group as president will be Tammy Rosato, who with her husband Frank has represented the neighborhood on LAPD’s Wilshire Division Community-Police Advisory Board, led efforts to activate a Neighborhood Watch in the area, and also serves as the alternate board member for the neighborhood on the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council.

Other LBHHA officers elected last night include:

  • Co-Vice Presidents Bob Eisele and Brad Jewett (Eisele is a longtime LBHHA board member, and Jewett is the neighborhood’s primary representative on the GWNC board)
  • Secretary Cathy Roberts (who also serves on the GWNC’s Land Use Committee)
  • Treasurer Jill Brown

Other board members elected on March 4 include:

Abbish Rand
Amy Lerner Hill
Bill Dannevik
Bill Funderburk
Diana Suh
Jane Prentiss
Justin Urcis
Michelle Owen
Phil Messina

The board members and officers will serve one-year terms.

[Note: The Buzz will publish a fuller account of last night’s LBHHA boad meeting – which included a lengthy discussion of homelessness issues in the community – later this week.]
