The City Council of the City of West Hollywood unanimously adopted a Resolution in Support of the Impeachment Inquiry into Trump. The City of West Hollywood’s Resolution was approved at the regular meeting of the City Council last night on Monday, October 7, 2019.
“History will remember what actions we took in this moment to protect our democracy and our government from corruption,” said West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tempore Lindsey P. Horvath. “We cannot allow this President to betray our country for his personal or political gain.
