Re “WeHo council candidates face off,” Aug. 25 issue
Arguably the most critical election West Hollywood has ever faced will be this November and the people need to see and hear the candidates. Every avenue of availability needs to be utilized.
Now, viewers are required to sign up for Zoom. Those among us that still, and with some reason, do not fully trust the government, especially local government, won’t ask for a link. Since CityChannel10, now WeHoTV, first flickered, the city ran and re-ran all candidate forums two or three times a day. Nope, [not for] this most critical election. Four members of the West Hollywood City Council voted NOT to televise, or seemingly promote, this year’s forum. And it [was not] on WeHoTV to select and watch. All the trappings of a high school clique.
There is one adult in the room. Re-elect Lauren Meister.
If you are a voter in West Hollywood, find the time to watch the forum on YouTube if you missed it. Your vote in a city the size of West Hollywood is so powerful. You are one of 36,000. Residents in any Los Angeles City Council district number 260,000. Enjoy your power. Vote!
