Angela Landsberg’s love for the San Diego urban core was inspired by her upbringing in what would one day become known as one of America’s Hippest Neighborhoods, North Park. She stepped into local San Diego politics after college as a Legislative Aid to then City Council Member Christine Kehoe. Her experience working for the City set the stage for her future career path of serving the public through coalition building and advocating for positive policy change. Over the last seven years, Angela has not only promoted North Park as a destination for locals and travelers, but also advocated for the small business policy that has resulted in North Park’s notoriety as one of the region’s most desirable urban business districts.
