Candidate statement – Ada Braun
I am a hematologist/oncologist working in cancer drug development at a local biotechnology company. We joined the wonderful Ladera community in 2017 and have enjoyed the activities and facilities of the Ladera Recreation District (LRD) ever since, including swimming, tennis, and yoga. Out of interest, I have attended numerous LRD board meetings in the past and have decided to strengthen my commitment to giving back to the community in volunteering time on the LRD board more formally. I am also affiliated with the Ladera DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) group, and I am committed to ensuring that all voices of the community are heard. All that said, I am excited to see more individuals step up than we have seats to fill, and my vote will primarily go to the incumbent, who is doing a fabulous job.
