A small request

January 7, 2014

The Los Angeles Mayor’s office is seeking to name an “Angeleno of the Year” honoring a community member who has contributed to making Los Angeles a better place for all.

I have made a nomination of a worthy candidate, and I am asking my readers to vote for her.  Here is the nomination paragraph, and you can go here to vote.

Vera Guerin

Mrs. Guerin recently began her term as President of the Cedars Sinai Board of Governors, capping off a year in which she and her husband, Paul, dedicated two endowed chairs at the hospital – one in pulmonary medicine and one in pediatric neurosurgery.  She was also a moving force behind the creation of the endowed chair in Women’s Health during her previous term as president of the Cedars Sinai Women’s Guild.  In addition to this support of the sciences, the Guerins are also long time supporters of the arts in our great city.  Finally, 2013 saw the opening of the spectacular Guerin Family Pavilion at the Skirball Center, yet another generous donation by this long time philanthropist.  Los Angeles has long benefited from the presence and generosity of the Guerin family, and 2013 was the greatest year yet.

You will have to log in, either via Facebook or with your email, which will put you on Mayor Garcetti’s mailing list, but you can always unsubscribe if you don’t want to receive his notices.  It will only take about 60 votes to take over first place, so maybe my regular readers can put the very deserving Mrs. Guerin over the top.
