Dear Neighbor,


In 1984 I joined the grassroots campaign to incorporate the City of West Hollywood. We fought to protect our homes and to determine our future.


Unfortunately, West Hollywood’s unique character is now assaulted by irresponsible developments that are choking our streets and displacing our residents. Long term tenants are subjected to harassment and eviction. Our progressive values are undermined by huge campaign contributions by developers that unduly influence decision making at City Hall.


If you believe as I do, that our local government should reflect basic community values like honesty, transparency and inclusiveness, then please join me in our mission to ensure our City Council represents the will of the people and not special interests.


As a long-time community advocate and former City Council Member, I pledge to be beholden to no one but the residents of our great community. Working together, let’s create a pro-neighborhood City Council and restore pride in the West Hollywood we love.


Respectfully, I ask for your trust and your vote once again on Election Day.


A Change for the Better!

If you would like to discuss any issue or volunteer on the campaign, please contact Steve at (310) 652-5924 or Steve@SteveMartinWeHo.com
