THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Anthony Angelini announces his campaign for Conejo Recreation and Parks District Board of Directors. Angelini was born and raised in Thousand Oaks and has dedicated his life to supporting his community. “The City of Thousand Oaks has given me everything I have, my community, my friends, my wife, my daughter — Now, I am humbly asking for the opportunity to give back,” Angelini says.
Angelini is running with three major priorities: restoring and upgrading CRPD’s existing properties, incentivizing civic and nonprofit partnerships, and better engaging parents and families in the work of CRPD.
“The Recreation and Parks District is much more than swing sets and sandboxes,” says Angelini. The district manages over $20,000,000 in City Assets and Angelini believes that these facilities, parks, and programs are investments: investments in community health, property values, and cultural well-being. He will work to make sure these investments remain healthy, through strategic investments and the engagement of our community partners, parents and families.
Angelini was awarded Youth Volunteer of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 2017. In 2019, he was appointed by City Council to the City of Thousand Oaks Arts and Culture Roundtable. He currently serves as the Commission’s inaugural Chair. Angelini attended UCLA, where he double-majored in History and Middle Eastern Studies, and is currently pursuing his Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Cornell University. In his professional career, Anthony serves as a Senior Field Representative for the California State Assembly in the 38th district, which includes parts of Ventura County.
Angelini attended Westlake High School, where he met his wife, Meisha, in the WHS choir, and their daughter, Aria, was born in Thousand Oaks last year. In high school, Angelini had his first insider experience with the CRPD as a Thousand Oaks Teen Center Advisory Committee member. He organized dozens of concerts, community events, and fundraisers. Angelini has volunteered for several local non-profits, including the Arts Council of the Conejo Valley, The New West Symphony, Five Star Theatricals, and Gold Coast Performing Arts Association.
The election will be held in November. For more information, visit www.anthonyangelini.com
