JOHN HEILMAN: Why you should vote for me

The City of West Hollywood is at a critical juncture.

We need to get back to basics. Our priority in the City should be public safety. This should always be the number one priority for the City Council.

We need to restore funding for law enforcement and improve our approach to homelessness.

We also need to restore a positive working relationship with the business community. Most of the City’s revenue comes from the business community.

Without that revenue, the City will not have the resources to provide services to our residents and to take care of our roads and other infrastructure. We need to work with the business community to attract new businesses to fill up our vacant store fronts.

We also need to get back to the basics of focusing on the needs of local residents and businesses, some of whom are still recovering from the impacts of the pandemic.

I hope people will vote for me because I bring a long history of stable leadership and service to the community.

I have a track record of serving the residents and businesses and getting things done for the community.

Which 3 candidates for WeHo City Council are you voting for?

I agree with :dph. Heilman has worn out his welcome, quite obviously. I think he is manipulative, self-absorbed & egomaniacal. The current situation on the Council right now is a travesty & 3 members are the result of Heilman’s selfish attempt to make himself more powerful. The proof is in the pudding – he failed. The damage he has done to our city must be remedied by electing those who can set things straight. (no pun intended). If the people approved of Heilman’s “work” on the Council, he would have gotten a 3rd term. Instead, he lost twice. Enough said.

John Heilman is personally responsible for where West Hollywood is right now: Horvath, Shyne and Erickson are his direct appointees. His closeness with developers is too close. No On Heilman.

Please, Try using facts! Cite your source. I’ll save you time, there is NO connection to Heilman. Your fake conspiracy comment should not have been published. Try FOX.

Try public record on appointments to commissions and relationships with Abbe Land. Done. Goodbye.

I’ll speak for you. While, yes, you are right. How could it be John Heilman? It is Abbe Land! She is the missing link. She brought SHE into the cast of characters that have taken West Hollywood way off course. I’m sorry Michael.

What a shame that he displays a complete lack of awareness (or at least lack of acknowledgment) of his personal responsibility for allowing the current council clown-show to exist.
John Duran (who I pretty much despise on a personal level) will be getting my vote – he at least seems capable of showing some contrition.

You’ve got my vote, sir. You’ve got my vote for the very reasons you laid out. Public safety is the number one job of government. I believe you’ll work well with Lauren Meister (as you’ve done in the past). Refund the sheriff’s department, fix our broken relationship with the business community. Bring sanity back to the city council. Fight the extremists on the council that are in the back pocket of Unite Here 11! A lot of people are saying you gave us Horvath, Erickson and Shyne.But no mentor is responsible for the extreme policies of another grown individual. West… Read more »
