Election Results! (for the Neighborhood Council)

If you watched this week’s presidential debate, you know that there’s a new everyman celebrity named “Joe the Plumber.”

Closer to home, another new set of names has emerged to represent “real people” served by the Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council.

Board members elected five new officers at Tuesday’s council meeting. The new leaders are:

President John Delgado, head of the San Pedro Youth Sports Association;

Vice President Andrew Silber, owner of the Whale and Ale Restaurant and a San Pedro Chamber of Commerce board member;

Secretary Sue Castillo, an incumbent board member, committee chair and former Communications Officer;

Treasurer Linda Alexander, a consultant and newly elected board member; and

Communications Officer Phill Trigas, an architect, downtown loft resident and first-term board member.

The council will hold a retreat this fall to develop its projects and goals.

Board members praised immediate past president Joe Gatlin, who received a certificate of appreciation from Councilwoman Janice Hahn’s office. Gatlin is now coaching the San Pedro High School girls basketball team.
