We Know WeHo: Mayor Lindsey Horvath Talks Social Justice, WeHo’s Future and Her WeHo Favorites

Lindsey Horvath

Following the March theme of Women’s History Month, We Know WeHo welcomes West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey P. Horvath to the show. Horvath has a long history of civic and social justice advocacy and was elected to the West Hollywood City Council in March of 2015.

She was first appointed to the West Hollywood Women’s Advisory Board in 2007, focusing on the issues facing women and families in West Hollywood, and has collaborated with community leaders and organizations in successfully advocating for the full funding of the backlog of untested rape kit evidence in the City and County of Los Angeles.

Lindsey is widely known for her leadership on women’s issues and serves as a Global Coordinator for One Billion Rising, a global campaign of the V-Day movement to end violence against women and girls. 

She is also a champion of LGBTQ rights, has served as a Board member of the Victory Fund, and is a founding Board member of the NOH8 Campaign. 

Tracy and Maxine don’t hold back and hear how Mayor Horvath maneuvered through the past year of the pandemic and also her vision for the future of West Hollywood. Tune in to listen as we aren’t giving away any spoilers, other than Tracy puts in her requests for a micro-brewery and a clustered wine tasting room experience similar to Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone.

Lindsey shares that she loves Russian bakeries found on the East side of WeHo, and in particular the Sour Cherry Vareniki (a cherry filled dumpling served with sour cream) at Voda Spa. (Insider Tip: Spoil yourself with the unique Voda Platza treatment where leafy bundles of oak or birch are used to help draw out impurities, improve circulation and refresh the skin and spirit.)

The episode wraps with Maxine elated about her first weekend out and about since mid November and her WeHo (plus adjacent) adventures. 

Be sure to tune into the American Lung  Champions Unite Talent Show Fundraiser on March 25th featuring players from the World Champion Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels and the San Diego Padres.

For all her humanitarian concerns, Ms Horvath totally ignored the fact that on Havenhurst Drive city housing for people with disabilities is right across the street from the proposed delivery driveway to Townscape’s 8150 Sunset Blvd development. Many of the occupants in the WEHO housing apartment building have breathing problems. Horvath and city officials totally ignored that fact, mainly because Horvath, Heilman and Duran had taken large amounts of money from the Townscape developers. Newcomer Ericsson also took money from Townscape. Just more pay to play. The driveway at 8150 Sunset for delivery will come out right on West Hollywood’s… Read more »

It is always good to hear our elected officials opinions, we do live in a democracy. I much rather hear these opinions, as opposed to hearing council members opine on individuals sex lives as previously demonstrated by former members. Let us all remember we want to see more civility in how council members interact and respect each others opinions.
