virtue signaling by useless politicians….but no attempt to fix the crime…LA has lost its glamour. Shilling more sex and drugs it the last thing the boulevard of broken dreams needs….I feel bad for the kids who live in this hell hole.

What is included in AGENDA ITEM: 4.B? The additional $6,305,767.00 needed to complete/“close-out” Weho Park. This sum is huge and atrocious. This sum needs a full accounting and should not be authorized without such. Also what is the current final tally on the park expenditure ? Someone needs to be accountable here.

Why $10,000.00 for the TransVagina Monologues? I was told that John Erickson ended up donating thousands of dollars of leftover West Hollywood money to Planned Parenthood from a NOW production of the Vagina Monologues.

How much West Hollywood City money does Erickson plan to “donate” to Planned Parenthood (his employer) this year?

It clearly does not take $10,000.00 to put on this event. Never did.

John Erickson could have a monologue with himself which would require $0. SpeaKing with one’s vagina is one of the most absurd scams perpetrated by socially unhinged people for attention.

Everything but CRIME, filthy diseased, rat-infested homeless camps all over the city, and, oh, just the basic responsibilities of adults in leadership positions of a city.

Please, point out ONE of these “camps.” Just ONE.

There was a problem near Poinsettia Park, which is in the City of LA, and that was resolved.

Tell us where these camps are?

I have previously lived in cities with homeless “camps,” but in the last year that I have lived in West Hollywood, I haven’t see a single one.
