Leslie Anglada Candidate Statement

I’ve been a grateful Ladera resident for almost a decade with my husband Nigel, our son Nolan, and dog Toby. We love our close-knit community! We’ve been members of the LRD since moving here - I volunteer at events and enjoy swimming laps (especially during the pandemic!). I’m running for the board to become more actively involved in the LRD and the community. With nearly 30 years of experience as a healthcare executive, I bring significant management skills. In addition, as the LRD explores investment options for long-term facility development, I bring fundraising experience: I’ve served on the alumni board of my college, led the advancement committee, and chair fundraising for my class each year.


I grew up in a small town where I was the office manager and a lifeguard at the swim club/rec association for 5 summers, so I understand how the LRD can be a hub for community spirit and social interaction. I’m interested in helping to organize programs & events at the LRD to encourage broader community involvement. I recently organized the socially-distanced 4th of July parade and loved recruiting and working with neighbors - the joy that morning made it all worthwhile! I welcome your ideas and would appreciate your support in the election. Please reach out anytime: 415-518-8183 or
