Brief Summary: The Los Feliz NC supports Bureau of Engineering Exhibit 3 to create
accessible sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides of the Glendale Hyperion Bridge therefore
creating a 21st Century multi-modal accessible bridge. The LFNC opposes the creation of a
defacto highway where high speed cars have priority and bicyclists and pedestrians travel at
their own risk. We support the effort to return the 1927 Hyperion Bridge to a livable bridge.

a. Oscar Winslow, Candidate for CD4 ‐ Retired LA police officer, currently a deputy city
attorney, and professor at private college. Website is Oscarwinslow.com. Brandt asked if
elected, what will Winslow bring. Winslow stated he’s been with the City for 30 years and
brings a unique perspective on what you see on the front and what happens in the back, a
lot of waste is going on and Winslow can move the City in the right direction. Innovative
ideas, freshness, and excitement as well.
b. Steve Stokes, Candidate for Congress (District 28) ‐ Lifelong resident of LA, real estate &
mortgage broker. Concerned about state of nation with a great deal of life experience.
Money & politics are a big issue, elected officials on both sides are making decisions based
on corporate benefits. GMOs should be labeled. Surveillance act violates 4th Amendment
and it should be stopped. Stokes wants to be able to shake things up in Washington.
