Hugo Soto-Martinez Sets First Year Priorities for L.A. Council District 13

By |January 16th, 2023|

Hugo Soto-Martinez was sworn-in to his first term on the Los Angeles City Council in December to represent Council District 13 – which includes, for purposes of Westside Voice’s coverage area – a portion of Hollywood as well as Larchmont Village. In the November, 2022 election, he defeated two-term Councilmember and acting Council President Mitch O’Farrell, who was first elected in 2013 and served nine years due to the realignment of city elections with General Elections. Former Mayor Eric Garcetti held the seat from 2001-2013.

Culver Council Majority Should Let McMorrin Represent Culver City

By |January 11th, 2023|

It’s only January 11th and the new Culver City Council majority is already exhausting me. The 1950’s-syle trio of Mayor Albert Vera and Councilmembers Göran Eriksson and Dan O’Brien have already rescinded a previously approved (the same night!) minimum wage for workers at Southern California Hospital. They have already set in motion an anti-camping ordinance that will just shuffle people experiencing homelessness from one street to the next, without a clear plan to provide services in place in a city with no shelter beds. Now, these Chamber of Commerce lackeys want to seemingly hide the only female and Black councilmember from public view.

Culver City’s New Council Majority Wasting No Time on Cruelty

By |December 21st, 2022|

On Wednesday, the Culver City Council will conduct a bit of a flash meeting, called at the last minute by Mayor Alex Vera and the new, more conservative council majority to do one single thing: Pass an “Anti-Camping” ordinance which criminalizes homelessness. They’ll say it doesn’t “criminalize” homelessness, that this will be the spark that gets the unhoused into services.

West Hollywood Installs New Council Members, Elects New Mayor

By |December 20th, 2022|

“You walked the walk, you talked the talk. You knocked on so many doors, and I never doubted you for a second. Congratulations Councilmember Chelsea Byers,” said Councilmember John Erickson to his new colleague just prior to her swearing in on Monday evening in West Hollywood. Byers was joined by returning Councilmember John Heilman and Mayor Lauren Meister in being installed for a four-year term. Erickson was equally as complimentary of Heilman, saying “It has always been my honor to one day serve with someone I consider a personal hero and I’m really excited to start this next chapter.”
