The manager of a controversial Los Angeles strip club has been elected to a neighborhood council.

The Daily News reported Wednesday that Avi Feinstein received 47 votes to earn one of two retail/service businesses representative slots on the Canoga Park council.

Current Neighborhood Council Vice President Ron Clary won the other slot.

The 27-year-old Feinstein runs the Canoga Park strip club Xposed.

In January, L.A. zoning officials ruled against an effort to shut the club down based on 66 calls to police from 2012 to 2013.

Feinstein beat out Xposed owner Brad Barnes for the position.

He says his victory is a result of showing voters that people associated with the club can be "good, upstanding community members."
