    John Erickson was Elected Mayor of West Hollywood and Chelsea Byers as Vice Mayor

    - Advertisement -

    At the Regular West Hollywood City Council meeting on Monday, December 18, 2023, the Council unanimously elected the current Mayor Pro Tempore, John Erickson, as the new Mayor of West Hollywood for 2024. Additionally, Council Member Chelsea Byers was elected as Vice Mayor. During Monday’s council meeting, the Mayor Pro Tempore title was changed to Vice Mayor, making Council Member Byers the first to hold this title.

    The Mayor and Vice Mayor will be officially installed on January 16, 2024, at the Reorganization Meeting, commencing at 6:00 p.m.

    “I am truly honored to be named the city’s first Vice Mayor,” said newly elected Vice Mayor Chelsea Byers during Council Comments. “I am thrilled to serve alongside Mayor Erickson and this incredible council. As we approach the end of this year and the beginning of a new one, I extend my deepest gratitude to the community for its ongoing support.”

    Vice Mayor Byers extended her thanks to outgoing West Hollywood Mayor Sepi Shyne for her dedicated service, as well as to City Staff and board and commission members.

    “Councilmember Byers, congratulations, soon-to-be Vice Mayor elect Byers,” said Mayor-elect Erickson. “I want to express my gratitude to my colleagues for this honor and thank Mayor Shyne for her leadership this past year. I am proud to be your colleague and even prouder to call you a friend. Thank you for leading us through it. Happy holidays, everyone.”

    City Council Members serve a four-year term and are elected at large. They select one of their members to serve as Mayor, with this office rotating among Council members during their yearly reorganization. The reorganization, which previously occurred in April, was changed at the March 1, 2021 City Council meeting to better align with the November election. The election is now conducted in December, and the new Mayor and Mayor Pro Tempore are installed at a meeting in January, as directed by the City Council.

    Two out of the three worst and most unqualified to hold a seat on the council. (one guess who’s the third…hint..starts with an S). The trio of union owned council members have been systematically destroying our city with their policies.

    They haven’t destroyed anything. You are so fucking dramatic and nonsensical. Your doom and gloom comments are beyond tired at this point.

    I’m sure a little research on your part through the city council’s website, their meeting notes, etc., could tell you, since both are sitting councilmembers

    Neither one of these anti-semites were at the menorah lighting ceremony the other day.

    Oh hush up you. There is actual real antisemitism going on in the world right now. Don’t water it down because people don’t celebrate the holidays the same way you do. You must be mad that Heilman didn’t get elected mayor. He has been mayor so many times I the past 40 years and he’s not even a very exciting one at that. Give our young leaders a break and give them a chance without you demonizing them because they don’t have the same beliefs as you.

    (besides, if that allegation were true–[which it’s not]–why would an anti-semite BE at a menorah lighting)? Ridiculous.
