I have lived in the Palisades area of San Pedro since 1972. I was the president of the Palisades Residents Association for about 6 years in the early 80’s. I have been very active in the San Pedro community for my entire adult life. I believe that it is important that the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council serve as an advocate for our community with the elected and bureaucratic governmental entities. Our primary responsibility should be ensuring the quality of life stays at its highest possible mark. Like many who have lived here for many years I love San Pedro and could not imagine living anywhere else.
