James Askew is humbled to have the opportunity to represent District 1 on the Neighborhood Council. He and his family love many things about North Hollywood - its vibrancy, its walkability, the parks and its proximity to transit. His young son loves the subway, the farmers market, the Ramen House, Eat, and the playgrounds on Tiara Street and Tujunga Ave.
As a former NYC resident who's lived in North Hollywood for 4 years, James brings a fresh perspective to the unique challenges North Hollywood faces as it continues to urbanize and grow in the 21st Century. He wants to ensure that as the neighborhood continues to grow and evolve into an urban center, it maintains its local charm and respects the needs and desires of its old residents while welcoming new ones like him.
James is co-chair of the Public Safety and Beautification committees, and is also the Treasurer for the council. Feel free to connect with him at www.facebook.com/JamesAskewForNoho
