Rick Zbur plans to open assembly district office in WeHo, hire Robert Oliver

State Assemblymember-elect Rick Zbur will open a district office in West Hollywood and has hired Public Safety Commissioner Robert Oliver as the office’s District Director, according to sources close to the official.

Zbur, the executive director of Equality California, was elected in November to represent California’s 51st District, which spans from Santa Monica to Atwater Village, including the entire city of West Hollywood. The newly drawn district is home to many of former 50th District Assemblyman Richard Bloom’s constituents.

Last week, Robert Oliver ended his campaign for WeHo City Council after a fifth-place finish.

WEHOville received a reply from Robert Oliver on behalf of Zbur, likely confirming that he has been hired by the assemblymember.

“Assemblymember-elect Zbur will make staff announcements after he is sworn into office on December 5th and his conditional offers of employment are approved by the Assembly Rules Committee. He will initially take over Assemblymember Bloom’s existing District Office at 2800 28th Street in Santa Monica and will be considering other locations, including locations in West Hollywood — which is the geographic center of the newly-drawn district — when that lease expires in early 2023.”

A formal announcement is expected within the coming days.

Very disappointing. I voted for Zbur, but it looks like he’s off to a really bad start. Granted he’s a new elected politician, and doesn’t know what to do, but he should have known not to hire that guy as his district director. A politician with poor judgment is oh so shocking! Lol.

Good grief, must we keep scrapping the bottom of the socialist pool? Very disappointing if true.

Yes, it’s odd when Socialist Landlord Millionaires are in charge of things.

According to the Los Angeles El Segundo times, Lindsay Horvath is one in a million. Can you imagine if there were more of her. This woman who did nothing except schlep around to every town in this county. To get endorsements. Los Angeles is now down the tubes even more with that total fraud serving.

California is a Democrat blue state hell hole. LA is a Homeless nightmare. This pathetic politicall hac couldn’t last two minutes in the real business world. Equality California is just another “charity” or “not taxed” organization pushing an agenda that means nothing except promoting the so-called POC Sepi Syne Wokeslop. As for Robert Oliver, at least he’s great looking and move Boy’s town than the old guys like John Heilman and John Duran.

You are just a troll who is seeking attention and trying to pick a fight. Pathetic? Your post is pathetic. Find somewhere else to pick fights. I’m sure there is plenty of opportunity on Twitter.
