David Garfinkle

I have been a Tarzana resident since 1970 and have been active in the community since then. In early 1970 my wife Evelyn and I fell in love with a vacant lot in Melody Acres, built our house, and raised two children, along with goats and chickens, fruits and vegetables. I am President of the Tarzana Property Owners Association (TPOA) and have served on the Board of Directors for many years. I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Tarzana Neighborhood Council, and Chair of the Land Use Committee, and Vice Chairman of the Melody Acres Neighborhood Association (MANA).  I previously worked for 50 years in the aerospace industry. I try hard to balance my professional, civic, and family activities with my addictive love of travel and the demands of my garden and orchard. 

I believe close coordination between the various organizations in our area is critical to preserving our unique community and to help shape the future of Tarzana and the city of Los Angeles. My current major community involvement is working for the preservation of the look and feel of our unique community. Toward that end I am actively working to try and integrate the community concerns and desires into current civic matters, to counter the City efforts to effectively eliminate the concept of single family residential neighborhoods, and to promote more effective code enforcement.
