Luis Saldana and the Chamberlain West Hollywood hosted a meet and greet in support of West Hollywood city council candidate Jordan Cockeram this past Thursday, September 22, 2022. The group of supporters included incumbent West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister who is running for one of three open city council seats at the upcoming General Municipal Election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
Saldana introduced Jordan Cockeram as someone who wants to preserve what makes West Hollywood special. He said the candidate is invested in keeping the community safe while supporting businesses and servicing West Hollywood residents.
Although Mayor Meister did not speak at the event, she said she thought Jordan was a really nice guy and that she was there to return the support he has given her at her own meet and greets. She also posed for some photos with some of the attendees.
“It was heartwarming to see so many people show up to this event to talk about the future we want to see for our city,” Cockeram told WEHO TIMES. “At first I was shocked at the turnout, but then I remembered that this is West Hollywood. The residents here care deeply, and they want good people elected to office.”
He said meet and greets with residents are important and plans to keep hosting these events up until election day because he wants to talk to as many of his neighbors as possible.
“We’re facing so many issues in West Hollywood right now, and there are problems I didn’t know people were having until they come to these events to tell me,” he said. “I’m running for City Council to help make people’s lives better. I want to hear what issues are in the minds of our residents and the best way to do that is by talking to them directly.”
The evening ended with cupcakes for dessert in recognition of the candidate’s recent birthday.

“I was born and raised in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. After graduating from the Carlson School at the University of Minnesota with a BSB in Finance, I moved to Los Angeles. Without having met anyone in person, I was lucky enough to find an apartment with an amazing new roommate who showed me around my new hometown. A city I had never heard of before, called West Hollywood. Now it’s been almost a decade, and I’ve never looked back.
I have been active in politics – local and national – since I was a child. Born to parents that were an attorney and a police officer, being an active political participant was ingrained in me at a very young age. I have volunteered on campaigns in the diverse communities of Minnesota and California on issues and campaigns ranging from local city officials to Presidential candidates. As a lifelong community organizer, I have done everything from passing out buttons and candy in parades when I was 10 years old for candidates I believed in, to running an entire polling precinct in a Presidential Primary Election.
Now, I am running for West Hollywood City Council to fight for a more fair, inclusive, and just city. For too long, our leaders have prioritized their personal power over the power of our community. West Hollywood is the great city that it is because of the people who live here, and I’m going to make sure that the people are taken care of. On my first day as a council member, I’m going to fight to make our neighborhoods safer from crime. I’m going to fight to take care of our most vulnerable citizens, including those suffering from homelessness. I’m going to fight to keep our housing costs affordable. I’m going to fight for our small business owners who want to do business here. I’m going to fight for you. Please join my campaign today and help us ensure every citizen, regardless of their background, can reach their full potential.”
