Very Liberal City Flips Republican?

West Hollywood, one of California’s most famous liberal cities, has taken a more moderate approach following the midterm elections. In fact, residents appear to have voted for candidates who were backed by the police department and local chamber of commerce instead of those more progressive incumbents.

Jessica Levinson, an election law professor at Loyola Law School, told MSN of West Hollywood that while the city has widely been seen as more liberal, many in the city have been aging and are turning their attention to more moderate candidates.

Levinson’s comments follow the recent pushback faced by the city council after the midterm elections in which key issues like criminal justice were pushed forward.

John Heilman, a city councilman for 36 years, had during his time been part of the city’s progressive policies in the mid-1980s. This included passing rent control policies, limiting evictions, and putting a ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Heilman lost his seat in 2020 to two younger and more liberal candidates. This led to the city becoming even more liberal, a move that many have widely pushed against. This led to Heilman regaining his position in this year’s midterm election.

Heilman said that city residents were keen on seeing council members focus on “public safety, homelessness, and basic services”. They are also looking for collaborations between the city and the business community.

Instead, the more liberal council of the two last year decided to make police department cuts and reduce the minimum wage in the city.

  1. Camala Harris had to be the worst vice President I’ve seen in my
    Lifetime!

  2. Good to see that some brains are growing!

  3. She’s not Vice President
    And Biden isn’t the President
    THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS THIS!!!
    These CROOKS will be in deep trouble. when REAL AMERICANS RISE . Fair warning to THE CABAL !!!

  4. Well, if people read history, they would never vote for Liberals! They have a horrible record, all the way back to slavery and were the ones who voted for slavery continuing and started it to begin with. Lincoln, from the Republican Party, was the one who fought against it. It just means taking the time to read and check things out to know which group is more sensitive to the issues that are important.

    • Well said, Phil. The party started escalating their anti_Americanism under the ploy of anti-corporate America in the early 60s which if people knew our history they’d know it really started back in 1952 when Ike was elected and the communist party of the USA lost by huge numbers after which the party infiltrated the Demonrat party and started it’s communist turnover which has escalated ever since.

  5. Well democrats are working on re-writing history so people can’t know their past or who was responsible for what. Clever, aren’t they?

  6. It is hard to believe Democrats stick to their losing way of running this country. Everything they do is against the norm. Why do people fall for their way of doing things, who knows. This country has been in turmoil since they took over with Biden turning everything into a disaster. He wiped out our Oil and gas normal policies trying to say it is helping this country to fight climate change. the climate has been changing since the earth has been here and it will keep on changing. we are going through the same things that happened in the 1930s and other years after that. we have had Hurricanes and Tornadoes through the years as bad as we have had in recent times.they act like this is the first time for the terrible Hurricanes we have been having when the truth is, we have had them just as bad in early years, I have lived through them

  7. LORD, PLEASE GIVE US TRUMP BACK SOON, LIKE TODAY, BEFORE BIDEN FINISHES DESTROYING THE REST OF THE AMERICA WE ALL KNOW AND LOVE!

    IF NOT LORD, ALL WE AMERICANS WILL HAVE LEFT, IS TO STICK OUR HEADS BETWEEN OUR LEGS AND KISS OUR
    XXX GOODBYE!

  8. It is NOT a liberal city. There ARE NO LIBERAL CITIES, or states, or regions. They are Stalinists, left-wing fascists, Islamo-Nazis. They are as liberal as is their god Farrakhan, and his god, Adolph Hitler. Start being accurate in your statements. Alan Dershowitz is a liberal, but I cannot think of another prominent liberal. They don’t exist. They either died, or have been swept along in the left-wing madness of today. STOP CALLING THEM LIBERAL!!!!
