    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.

    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.

    Lauren Meister has the full endorsement from myself and my partner, Stan Chatman. We know her to be a person of great sincerity and integrity. Throughout her tenure on the WeHo City Council she has been a consistent advocate for affordable housing, safer streets, social services outreach for our community, and the preservation of West Hollywood’s historic landmarks. Thank you for all you do Lauren!

    Lauren Meister has repeatedly shown that her focus is doing what is best for the citizens of West Hollywood vs. using her office for self promotion. More than ever, we need her and similar minded council people.

    Since Lauren was first elected I could see measured improvements in quality of life in WEHO. She is quite responsive to residents’ concerns when contacting her office. Her core values perfectly align with mine, especially with regard to seniors, the disabled, renters, treatment access, and public safety, by voting against reducing law enforcement here at the WEHO Sheriff’s Dept. I’ve never felt she has acted in favor of developers, who seek to take advantage of business opportunities, which includes reducing housing for renters. Our fur babies have also benefited greatly by Lauren’s hard work on Council. These are just a few of her many accomplishments and stands to improve life in our city.

    We must vote Lauren into office again. Lauren’s really cares about West Hollywood, with no hidden agendas-just an honest, sincere and genuine care for the people and who live and work in the City. She is not caught up in all the nonsense and has a reasonable and rational approach when it comes to voting on important issues. Lauren is the only person who can help move this City out of the mess it’s in and get it back in the right track. Please vote for Lauren.

    Lauren Meister has been the ONLY consistent voice on our City Council to represent consistently the will of West Hollywood’s citizens. She stands for US over special interests and those members with other political ambitions. Lauren is the voice for ethical governance. Truth is we need her. And so I ask you to join me in voting for Lauren Meister in November. Thank you. Cynthia Blatt.

    We need to keep Mayor Meister’s common-sense leadership on the WeHo City Council. She has been the voice of reason as well as the voice of the constituency since she was elected. WeHo needs her for four more years!

    Lauren Meister really cares about West Hollywood and its residents.

    She is concerned for the city’s residents safety and is the only one on the City Council who voted both against reducing our Police force and the Council using unarmed ambassadors instead ( insane idea) AND against the bars staying open until 4 A.M. (The last thing we need is to have intoxicated people wandering the streets in the early morning.) Resident safety is important to her as well as dealing with the homeless crisis. We need a sensible member of the City Council! Please vote to re-elect her!
