  • Reduce the Homeless population through assisting the homeless with housing and medical assistance

Experience

Biography

 

I have owned a home here in West Hollywood for 20 years. I own a software development company. Also, for 9 years I produce and host a weekly talk show on West Hollywood C called “My Weho World”  

 

The reason I started the show was to become more involved with the City. I have hosted many West Hollywood council members, business owners and residents.  

 

From this experience, I feel I am well in touch with The City of West Hollywood’s Benefits and the Problems that residents and businesses face. 

 

I moved to West Hollywood because as a city, it was founded to offer protection to the LGBT community of which I am a member, protection against rising rents, and a safe low crime area in which to live.  These protections are rapidly disappearing.

 

 

 

 

Issues such as Parking, traffic, homelessness, dramatic rent increases, and new business issues all remain in spite of promises made by council members.

 

 

 

New Development has increased not slowed. Everything seems to get approved.

 

 

 

I am running because I stand for change and the only way to change the City is to change the people in charge.

 

 

 

 

We need to take back control of our City before the corporations taking over make it impossible.

 

 

 

 

 

I am ready to take on that responsibility and to fight for the citizens of West Hollywood so that we who live here can all have the guarantees of  a better life here.
