Alicia Weintraub For Calabasas City Council
Planning Commissioner/Businesswoman

Calabasas is a special community and a wonderful place to call home.

My husband and I are proud to be raising our family in a city that values public safety, supports our schools, and protects our open spaces.

Still, there are areas where we can work together to make Calabasas even better--that is why I am running for City Council.  

As a businesswoman with a strong public policy background, I understand good governance, have experience balancing city budgets, building consensus, and improving public outreach.

For many years, I have been working to improve the lives of Calabasas residents:

  • Vice-Chair, Planning Commission
  • Chair, LVUSD Measure G Bond Oversight Committee
  • Board Member, The Foundation for Las Virgenes Schools
  • Board Member, Bay Laurel PFA
  • Braewood Neighborhood Watch Captain
  • Past Vice-Chair, Environmental Commission, Chaired Coyote Education Committee
  • Past Member, Bicycle Advisory Committee

On our City Council, I will:   

Keep Neighborhoods and Schools Safe  

  • Working with our sheriff, our Council’s chief priority must be to ensure our community’s safety.
  • We need to reduce traffic congestion and bottlenecks to ensure our roads remain safe.

Improve Our Uniquely Calabasas Way of Life

  • I am committed to providing services for all residents, from youth to seniors.  I am a proud supporter of the new Senior Center and want to ensure that Seniors can age in place.
  • Working with our Chamber of Commerce, we need to attract and retain community supported businesses that provide important city revenue while preventing overdevelopment of Calabasas.
  • As a fiscally responsible Councilmember, I will oppose any new City taxes.
  • We are fortunate to live amongst the spectacular beauty of the Santa Monica Mountains.  I will work to acquire more parks and open spaces.
  • I strongly support Measure O, our City’s Open Space Initiative, and LVUSD’s Measure E, which provide funding for our schools.

Make Our City Work Smarter and Better for Every Resident

  • We need to proactively develop a sustainable water policy to address drought impacts.
  • Through technology, town hall meetings, and walking tours, we can better involve and inform residents regarding neighborhood projects.   
  • As a community we need to better prepare in the event of a natural disaster.  

On City Council, I will bring a fresh perspective, a unique combination of work and community experiences, leadership qualities, and dedication.
