Keith Kaplan, Past Chair of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, released the following statement in response to the city not televising the annual candidate forum:
“I am saddened that the City of West Hollywood has chosen not to televise this year’s West Hollywood City Council Candidate Forum. It’s been a tradition for many years. A healthy community is a transparent community. It’s important that voters have the knowledge to make wise decisions as to who they would like to represent them in their beloved city. Withholding information from the voters, is a threat to democracy.
“The Forum will go on. It is scheduled for Tuesday, August 23, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
“The candidate forum is presented by WEHO for the People. The League of Women Voters of Greater Los Angeles and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is hosting the free virtual event. Robert Kovacik, NBC 4 news anchor will serve as moderator.
