Santa Monica Rent Control Board member Julie Lopez Dad has announced that she will resign from the office to return to community activism.
Dad, who was appointed to the board in January, 1988, to fill an unexpired term, and elected in November, 1988, to a full four-year term, submitted her resignation to the board last week. She said she will stay until the end of the year to help implement the board's inclusionary housing program.
It will be up to the other four members of the board to appoint someone to fill Dad's seat until the next scheduled municipal election in November, 1990. The resignation means that four of the five seats on the board will be up for election then.
Dad, 45, a researcher for an investment firm in Westwood, said she is resigning because she believes the coming year will be a difficult year in which to accomplish anything on the board.
