DAWN JACOBS – (Certified)
Candidate Documentation:(Driver License, Property Tax Receipt, )


New to Los Angeles and urban living I immediately recognized the importance of maintaining a lifestyle filled with horses, donkeys, mules, goats and chickens. I have loved every minute of it. I began my involvement and fight to save our community upon hearing about the High Speed Train.

I will continue to dedicate my time to preserve what so many have worked hard to build and keep. And if elected I will work with our local business, our neighbors and other volunteers to hold strong our lifestyle, our safety and our homes.

The first two years of my tenure on the Foothill Trails District Board have been a great learning experience. With some time under my belt, I feel better suited to truly be of service to this community. My goals are twofold: to include more community members in the volunteer and committee process, and to generate support for the goals and vision of others by coming alongside them to plan, advertise, and implement event, fairs, and other community events that spread awareness on various issues, and provide much needed information and assistance to the community.

KELLY ROSE – (Certified)
Candidate Documentation:(Other, Utility Bill, )


When searching for an alternative to the urban LA lifestyle to raise my family I was blessed to find our home in LVT. Horses, a place for my kids to play outside and the ability to see stars at night was unheard of in LA but we found it!

With CA High Speed Rail barreling at us I became very active in the fight to protect our community. On my own and as an effective member of SAFE, I’ve dedicated myself to preserving this very special area and all it offers.
If elected I will continue to be your watchdog. I’ll work to help our community grow in a way WE agree with, by improving our schools, supporting local small businesses & embracing our lifestyle, not allowing it to be dismantled.
I believe strength is in numbers. My objective is to improve the communication between the Council and ALL community members. We all have the same goal and that is to cherish and safeguard our neighborhood against developers looking to rezone, tear down or disregard the needs of the area as it exists.

JESS LEWIS – (Certified)
Candidate Documentation:(CA Driver License, Other, )


My name is Jess Lewis and I’m proud to announce my candidacy for the Foothill Trails District Neighborhood Council. My platform focuses on fostering sustainable growth within all facets of our community. Sustainability extends far beyond environmental responsibilities, it extends to financial and social responsibilities as well. Whether they relate to bringing in new businesses, trail and public land preservation, or the impact of projects such as solar farms or the High Speed Rail, we must facilitate growth without compromising our way of life.

My extensive marketing and business background paired with my passion for the community will be a perfect intersection between outreach and impact. I live in Sun Valley (Area 5) with my family and my horses. Nothing would please me more than to serve my community by being a part of an organization whose impact reaches much farther than just our District.

TAMARA LOPERFITO – (Certified)
Candidate Documentation:(CA Driver License, )


I volunteered for an empty seat two years ago and this time I would like to earn your vote while I continue engaged with SHPOA. Many issues remain requiring our continued work: the bullet train, gentrification, loss of equine keeping rights and trails and now a rise of homelessness, vagrancy and drugs. The City of LA needs to hear from us and so does the County and the state.
This is a wonderful area. I hope that we will soon see the Rim of the Valley realized with the Hansen Dam Recreational Area and our local trails inviting recreational equestrians from far and wide. Many of our stakeholders have been working tirelessly for years to preserve our country living. We cannot let them down.

JOSHUA JEFFREY – (Certified)
Candidate Documentation:(Letter from Organization, Other, University/School Identification, )


Over this past year, I have worked with local leaders to protect our communities from divisive projects like High Speed Rail. Our neighborhoods have suffered as our concerns over employment, education, homelessness, and infrastructure are met with silence. I wish to serve on the Foothill Trails District Neighborhood Council to encourage regional economic growth that respects the unique equestrian character and culture of our communities.

I believe my technical background in science and engineering, as well as my experiences aiding community organizations and affecting policy at a local level would be invaluable to the Council; where if elected, I hope to address the serious challenges of continuously developing our neighborhood resources, as well as promoting the growth of our local businesses and the prosperity of our residents and neighbors.
