    West Hollywood Social Services Manager David Giugni Quietly Announces Retirement

    West Hollywood Social Services Manager David Giugni has quietly announced that he is retiring. An email sent to select city staff members and West Hollywood commissioners states he plans on leaving his position on October 21, 2022.

    Giungi had no comment on his retirement when attempts were made to reach him via phone. He is known to be a very private person and has managed to have a small online presence considering his position in social services (hence the grainy black and white photo you see in this post). The City of West Hollywood has a policy that it does not discuss city staff’s employment statuses. City manager David Wilson also did not mention that the city West Hollywood will be out of a Social Services Manager at the end of this month during his manager’s report at the regular city council meeting on Monday, October 3, 2022. We can’t even confirm how long Giungi has been employed with WeHo City, which is believed to be well over two decades.

    Two sources confirm they received his email earlier this week saying goodbye. Sources say he originally planned his retirement towards the end of the year.

    Social Services Manager David Giugni oversees social service contracts totaling over $5 million annually by performing program and financial audits, contract management and administrative support. His staff provides crisis intervention and information, and referral to constituents who call or walk into City Hall. Giugni also represents the City of West Hollywood on the Los Angeles County Commission for HIV and Health Services. In addition, David staffs the City of West Hollywood’s Human Services Commission, Disabilities Advisory Board and HIV/Substance Abuse Prevention Providers’ Collaborative.

    The Social Services Division provides social services, health education and information to the community to improve the quality of life for those in need. Services include necessities of life such as food and shelter; AIDS education; pre-school education for young children; job placement; legal services; mental health services; and homeless services. Services are provided via contracts with local non-profits and in-house programs. Target populations are Seniors, people living with AIDS, Gay men, Lesbians, families with children, immigrants and people living with disabilities.

    A very nice and handsome man. Maintaining privacy is hard in this day and age. Too bad WeHo Ville couldn’t respect that privacy. I wish him luck and thank him for his social services.

    Yet another overpaid WeHo bureaucrat. Got $306,540 last year in pay and benefits, more than the governor.

    He’s been a W Hollywood employee for over two decades. In America you get a raise every year so it’s not fair to compare it to the governor

    It’s a big job with a 5-million-dollar budget, but that’s no excuse.

    It does seem like an outrageous amount. He should’ve retired years ago.

    I really have appreciated communicating with David throughout these past 11 years as a resident. I am happy I got to know a genuine person who helped residents who were contending and faced concerns and pressing issues that affected our status as residents or impacted our livelihoods. He helped reach other colleagues who would not personally talk or reach out to me, but David always did! David is a tremendous person who really devoted his time and abilities with helping reach out to local residents some living with disabilities. David especially did great work with communicating our needs to the… Read more »
