Anne Chomyn represents Census Tract 4601, an area corresponding to northeast Altadena, more or less. She has lived in the same home on Altadena Drive since 1976, and, like her neighbors, enjoys the proximity to hiking trails, the beautiful views, the abundant trees, the diverse population, and the small town feel of Altadena.
Anne grew up in Philadelphia, graduated from Drexel University with a B.S. in Physics, then moved west for graduate school at Caltech, where she earned a Ph.D. in Biology. She continued to work at Caltech, conducting research on mitochondria, for approximately 30 more years. She has taught at Caltech and at Cal State LA, and given lectures around the world. Now that she has retired, she looks forward to giving back to her local community.
As a member of the Council, Anne’s goals include making Altadena safer, more healthful, and more attractive. She will be addressing issues of concern to Census Tract 4601 residents, including traffic, pedestrian safety, and road and curb maintenance.
Another of Anne’s goals as Town Council member is to make the community more aware of the Council and its functions. Toward that goal, Anne is working to establish and maintain lines of communication between herself and the community she serves. She has created a facebook page (see the link below) that can be visited by subscribers and nonsubscribers alike. In addition, she will be posting regularly on Nextdoor.com and to the stonehillnews listserve (http://stonehillnews.com/subscribe). Residents who prefer not to use any of these social networks can email her for alternative ways to be kept informed. She welcomes input and participation from the community.
