Lauren Meister is WeHo’s new mayor; Sepi Shyne its mayor pro tem

Lauren Meister will be West Hollywood’s next mayor.

Mayor Pro Tem Lauren Meister was chosen by her fellow councilmembers as West Hollywood’s next Mayor on Monday night, while Councilmember Sepi Shyne was elected to be the next Mayor Pro Tem.

They were both nominated by Mayor Lindsey Horvath, who has served since 2019, and approved by the council unanimously.

“It’s the first time in history a woman has nominated two women” for the positions, Horvath said. “I’m very excited to be handing off this baton.”

This will be the second time Meister has served as mayor.

The terms of both mayor and mayor pro tem will last until January 2023 — a year and four months — in order to re-align them with the beginning of the year.

Such progress!

Why not build a new Metro Station on our street, too? (Larrabee x Cynthia) – and then how about a Chick-fil-A? (Larrabee x Harrat).

What a great time to have a steady hand on the tiller. With a newly reconstituted City Council and a new City Manager it is great time for Lauren Meister to be Mayor. Calm and experienced leadership will help us make the transition into the City’s next chapter.

Mayor Lauren Meister looks the same.
She is too busy doing keeping track of city business, ever watchful for the residents and may not have time to blow out her naturally curly hair every day.
Is that OK with you?
