    I fully and wholeheartedly endorse Lauren Meister. She has been supportive and outstanding to work with as her appointed public safety commissioner over the past 7 years. She has never required or even requested me to speak at a council meeting to vote for or support something. She has always allowed me freedom and has been very very into public safety since the beginning. When she first appointed me to be on the public safety commission I didn’t know her very well but through time I began to hear stories from residents of how she helped them. One of the first stories I remember was when she drove over in the middle of the night in her nightgown to help them rescue their trapped cat. She is just a very hard working real person that really cares. Her dad told me that maybe she was too honest and then we agreed that you can’t be too honest. I have always been proud to say that she appointed me.

    As one half of the real estate group known as the WeHo Team, I proudly endorse Lauren for City Council. I’ve lived in West Hollywood since 1994 and believe Lauren knows how to lead our city. Tough on crime, fair on business and development , and with the right combination of common sense and compassion, Lauren is our best choice.

    I have lived in West Hollywood since 1985, and have owned and lived in my home in West Hollywood West since 1989. Lauren has been an active supporter of residents for more than two decades, and has helped protect and preserve our rights and interests. She has taken the time to really understand the City and its people, and has even earned a masters degree in public administration with a focus on public safety. I wholeheartedly and happily endorse Lauren for City Council!

    Lauren Meister has been an exemplary Councilmember – as a long time City resident, she has a perspective that rivals most of her opponents. She is thoughtful, level headed & highly responsive. She doesn’t have her “hand in the cookie jar” of Developers who rout out small businesses with their “land takeovers,” making Weho even more dense while lining their own pockets. She has a rational perspective on our increased crime; she understands that eliminating LASD positions in favor of unarmed “security ambassadors” who have little effect upon armed (be it guns, hatchets, scissors etc) is beyond stupidity. As a fairly liberal person my whole life, I draw a very hard line on this issue.

    Lauren Meister analyzes the issues, asks the pertinent questions, and examines the budgets before supporting new or continuing programs. Over the two decades I’ve seen her in action, she has worked diligently and effectively to keep West Hollywood safe and prosperous. She should be reelected to continue building upon this stellar record of accomplishment.

    Lauren, of our numerous City Council members past and present, you shine like the sun. You have my vote. I only wish Ruth were here to join you. The people in WeHo who have experienced your consideration every, concern and action for our small city know the person who deserves their vote. We have undergone trials and errors in our choice of candidates. Hopefully this time we will choose wisely and well and place our city back on its previous course of working for the residents and the people who come here to find better lives. I moved to WeHo in 1988. I KNOW WeHo.

    I have found Lauren to stand behind the citizens of West Hollywood and really listen to the issues confronting us. Lauren is proactive and one of us, not just politicking but working towards a better more enlightened West Hollywood. Life has changed, our livelihoods, our homes & our safety are major concerns. I’m also happy she is open to union dialogue for workers & business owners. – I am a 20+ yr union worker & 20+yr West Hollywood resident. I support Lauren because she has proven her support & allegiance to West Hollywood residents.

    I admire the integrity and hard work Lauren has exhibited. It’s not always easy to do what’s right – especially when it can be unpopular or those with too much power try to squelch you. Lauren has even told me when she has disagreed with me – and that takes guts. I want to see Lauren re-elected, and strongly endorse her for West Hollywood residents.

    Unequivocally the best of the field by far! Lauren has made herself available to listen to any citizen who wants to have a communication with her. She listens to all and then makes an ‘adult’ decision based on what she hears from the community. She is not the type to let ’outsider’s’ (i.e. the Unions) influence her decisions. She is community based and driven in her decision making. Hands down the ONLY candidate that I would or could endorse!

    Lauren is the candidate that stands for the Best of WeHo. She has a commitment to safety and quality of life that a majority of the WeHo citizens I speak to want. Responsive. Integrity. Sincerity. When you run into Lauren while walking the city … she gives you 100% of her attention .. she is the person you want on the WeHo City Council … with a vision for where WeHo needs to go in the future.

    Lauren Meister is the real thing, a “resident” council member, and local advocate with deep roots in our community.
