    A sad day for West Hollywood and our region. Incestuous corruption trudges on. Oliver was whooped badly. Why not Zekiah Wright or better yet Ms Sepi! She’s looking for a move up. Bye gurl.

    He hired Oliver. Horrible. More of the same progressive crap that has put California on a road to becoming like a third world country. No thanks.

    How rich to hire a millionaire landlord to pretend to care about the poor. The voters rejected this guy, but his consolation prize from a Councilmember’s salary of barely crumbs, will be a massive taxpayer-funded salary, likely well over $200,000 per year, maybe even closer to $300,000 per year? We are all Socialists, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but Oliver is way beyond a Socialist, at least in his public life. In his private life, however, he’s a millionaire landlord and investor.

    We’re all socialists? No, no we’re not. That’s an outrageous statement.

    Do you use public roads? Public airports? Public schools? Public libraries? Public healthcare? A doctor educated with public money? Do you collect Social Security or plan to? Congratulations, you’re a Socialist. It’s not a bad thing. Being a Communist is bad, but a Socialist is what we all are.

    What a sad troll. It’s clear you don’t know, and have likely never even met, Robert. Just more talking out of your rear to score some points on an online blog. If you’re so concerned, why don’t you get up off your duff and do something in the community? Whatever your beef is with Robert Oliver, he’s done far, FAR more good for WeHo than you have, you little keyboard warrior you. And to those of you claiming Robert is the problem, have you really convinced yourselves that WeHo’s problems only started in the few years since Shine and Erickson… Read more »

    Perfect response. “WehoQueen” never has anything positive to say, and is indeed a troll, and a keyboard warrior. Wonder if they are even a real resident.

    As the District Director to our former Assemblymember, Richard Bloom, I was excited to learn Assemblymember Zbur had selected Robert Oliver as his District Director. I have known and worked with Robert for years and know him to be smart, thoughtful, approachable, and passionate about improving the lives of others – all necessary traits for good representation and to serve as our voice. He is also a resident of West Hollywood, making him extremely accessible to our residents. In my opinion, Asm. Zbur will need to hire more than one Field Representative in if he expects to successfully meet the… Read more »

    Sounds like an appeal for a job. Seems like you’re looking for ways to keep impoverished people who can’t afford to live here, have others subsidize them. So sad that you don’t want multiple Field Representatives in the area to help taxpayers who pay their fair share with their problems, but rather you want multiple Field Representatives in the area to help freeloaders figure out ways to stop perfectly legal evictions, like for non-payment cause they live in an area they can’t afford to live in. You’re the type of person who is the cause of virtually all of the… Read more »

    Oliver was a bad idea for West Hollywood and he’s a bad idea for the county, and state. More progressive crap.
