WEST HOLLYWOOD—To prepare for the upcoming General Municipal Election on Tuesday, March 5, the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce (WHCC) is hosting a West Hollywood City Council Candidate Forum with the participation of the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles. Eleven candidates are running for three City Council seats that are up for grabs and will commence on April 2019. All candidates have been invited by the host organization to participate.
According to a news release from the city of West Hollywood, the Candidate Forum will transpire on Tuesday, January 29 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the West Hollywood’s Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Robert Kovacik, anchor and reporter for NBC4 Southern California, will serve as moderator. The forum will include the participation of the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles, a non-partisan independent organization, to guarantee that candidates are treated in a fair, inclusive, and impartial manner.
Each candidate will have the opportunity to provide opening and closing statements. After the initial question-and-answer period, there will be a public question period where attendees can ask specific questions — questions from members of the public will be accepted on-site using written cards and questions will be accepted from Twitter using the hashtag #wehoforum. The Candidate Forum is free and open to the public. Individuals unable to attend can watch live on WeHoTV.
West Hollywood’s WeHoTV will broadcast the forum on its cable and web channels. WeHoTV is available to Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable) customers within West Hollywood on channel 10. AT&T U-verse customers across Southern California can access WeHoTV on channel 99. The forum will be available for live streaming and on-demand replay on the City’s website at www.weho.org/wehotv and on WeHoTV’s YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/wehotv.
WeHoTV programming is available on multiple streaming platforms, including Android TV, Apple TV, Fire TV, and Roku. Digital streaming platform viewers can easily find programming by searching for “WeHoTV” within the search functions of these services.
