So Tom, George, and I carpooled to the Treasurer's training yesterday. And we got to talking about driving participation, motivation, all those good things. I reflected on how hard we all have tried to not model ourselves on a mini City Council, and I remembered Carol Baker Tharp. Those were her words! She's the reason that I work as hard as I do with our NC. Erik, Robert A, and Susan P will remember her.
She was the 3rd General Manager of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, following Lisa Sarno. Appointed by Mayor Villaraigosa, she just plain inspired all of us. She first came to speak to us in 2003. Watch the videos and tell me that you don't wish that she hadn't died so young and so soon, only 11 months in office. I can only think of what might have been had she been around to implement her vision. But maybe, after watching this, you'll feel re-inspired too.
And it's pretty funny, I remember those long tables of food like it was yesterday!

President’s Message, By Susan Swan
Why get involved? We are asked that many times, and sometimes we even question that ourselves. It is indeed easier to not do something and let others make those tough decisions. But at some point, it becomes personal.
To quote the late Congressmen Tip O'Neill, "All politics is local." On July 21st, 2003, Carol Baker Tharp spoke to the HUNC board about volunteerism; “ people get involved initially because of a local issue that affected them personally. Then, the longer they stayed involved the more they began to see the connections between their own self-interests and the interests of the community.” (HUNC minutes, July 2003).
Her words, inspirational! We left feeling renewed and our commitment to the Neighborhood Council effort, positively recharged. We are even more thrilled because she is now the new General Manager of DONE*.
I’m certain that there is something that ‘gets’ you in your community, something that makes no sense, something that you wish ‘someone’ would do something about sometime! Well, that someone is you, and that sometime is NOW. Get involved!
We are planning several Town Halls this year that will address some of the most common concerns of our community, but maybe not your pet project or your pet peeve. The only way that you can ensure that you live in a vibrant, informed community, is to make it so. Email me with your thoughts. We are always there, and we are always listening.
*Tragically, Carol Baker Tharp passed away on Nov 5, 2007.
