"Our neighborhood council helped start the new Del Rey Farmers Market," Eric DeSobe, DRNC president, said in a statement. "People on the council got to see the process happen from the beginning stages to now -- and we were major contributors to seeing this through."

The positions open are seven residential seats, one at-large seat, one at-large affirmation seat, two business seats, one community organization representative seat, one education representative seat, one LMU representative seat, one service organization representative seat and one youth organization representative seat.
