    PHOTOS – West Hollywood City Council Candidates Meet and Greet at The Domain Apartments

    Longtime West Hollywood resident and Rent Stabilization Commissioner Richard Maggio invited all twelve West Hollywood City council candidates to make nice and meet and greet at The Domain West Hollywood apartments this past Saturday, September 24, 2022. Eleven of the 12 city council hopefuls attended the event to introduce themselves to neighbors and talk about why they are the best candidate to fill one of three open city council seats at the upcoming General Municipal Election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 (Adam Darvish did not attend).

    Each candidate was given a moment to speak and work the room while enjoying cake and refreshments. Treats were provided by Breakfast Republic.

    “I thought the event was very fair and equitable,” said Maggio about the meet and greet. “Everyone showed up. Most of these people are my friends, so I felt I needed to do something that brought them all together. That was my objective. I know where everyone’s positions are, and I’m happy to bring everyone together to this wonderful venue at the Domain, which is where I live.

    Richard Maggio says he’s lived in West Hollywood for most of his life, so he sees and understand things from a different perspective. He has served as a Rent Stabilization Commissioner for 27 years of the 32 years he’s been a commissioner in West Hollywood. He lived west of La Cienega on Horn Avenue, before moving to The Domain five years ago.

    He says a big standout for him at the meet and greet was the realization that he can still pack a house. “I expected an A+,” he joked. “And I think I got an A.”
