West Hollywood city council candidates Mayor Lauren Meister, Steve Martin, and John Cockeram are seeking the WeHo gay Republican vote. The three candidates are joining the Log Cabin Republicans of Los Angeles for a candidate forum at Fiesta Cantina WeHo located at 865 Santa Monica Boulevard, on Friday, October 14th, at 7 p.m. (the group will continue to Heart WeHo down the street afterwards).
“I am personally delighted these talented minds will join our forum on public safety, a critical issue for LA and West Hollywood,” reads a message from Gabe Eisner, President of Log Cabin Republicans of LA. “If all 3 candidates win their seats, the West Hollywood City Council has a tremendous opportunity to be the centrist governing body it ought to be. And we have a chance to stand with them to make that happen.”
Log Cabin Republicans Los Angeles came out in support of Joe Cockeram at his meet and greet at the La Peer Hotel last Wednesday, September 28, describing him as a “local candidates who is pro-small business and tough on crime.”
The three candidates have the support of the Log Cabin Republicans of Los Angeles for the following reasons:
