Max Flehinger

I have lived in Tarzana since 1961, been a member of TPOA for many years and on the Board of Directors since 2002. Because my principal area of interest is improving transportation in Los Angeles, I am the Transportation Chairman for TPOA. I am a Tarzana Neighborhood Council Board member, Executive Secretary, and Chair of the Transportation Committee.

I am a member of the founding group of the Tarzana Community and Cultural Center and a retired dentist.

After leaving dentistry, I conducted a personal financial planning business and am a former board Chairman of the Los Angeles chapter of Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic, as well as current President and CEO of the Audio Internet Reading Service of Los Angeles (AIRS-LA), an internet-based service for those who are blind, low vision or print-impaired.

Michael Povar

Giving back to your community is  the heart and soul of what I love to do. I have done community service for over thirty years for my college alma mater and other organizations.
I grew up in Tarzana in the 1960’s and had my best childhood memories going to Tarzana  Elementary School and Portola Junior High.  I joined the TPOA Board of Directors to make a difference in our local community. Today,  the TPOA board of directors has many challenges to deal with in our community.   Working with these challenges, we have improved our quality of life for the people that live and work in Tarzana.  For over twenty-five years, I ran a television production company that worked with cable and broadcast networks and produced videos for major corporations.  I live near Tarzana Elementary School and have two daughters  that are in the entertainment industry.

Stanton Saucier

We have been Tarzana residents and property owners for over twenty years and have served on the TPOA Board for six years. We have lived in Melody acres with our two children, ages sixteen and eighteen, dogs, cats, fish and a big red thoroughbred horse named Anna. We both value the importance of community involvement and are dedicated to helping preserve the unique qualities of our neighborhood and Tarzana.
Stanton has been active in the community for several years as a youth sports coach and as a member of the landscape committee, through the Melody Acres Neighborhood Association, for the MTA Orange Line bus way project. He is Vice President in charge of Marketing and Product Planning at the Ricon Corporation, a division of the Wabtec Corporation and the premier supplier of wheelchair accessibility systems for the rail and bus industries. He is registered as a professional engineer in the State of California, received his Bachelors of Science in Mechanical and Materials Engineering from the University of Connecticut and his Master in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. When not working, he enjoys playing ice hockey, soccer, sailing, and hiking.


David Springer

We have lived in Tarzana for the past 53 years and have finally taken an active interest in our community. I am new to the board of the TPOA and plan to be active for many years. My wife Rosalyn and I have been married for 62 years and we have two children. A son and daughter both married. For many years I have been an active member of a Masonic Lodge and in 1975 I was elected Master of the Lodge. Prior to my retirement I spent close to 60 years operating a commercial printing company servicing the aerospace, electronic, commercial and industrial companies. As a member of TPOA I will do my best to keep Tarzana as a unique a community as it currently is.
