Well, West Hollywood just keeps getting better and better. Lindsey Horvath was unanimously voted as a new City Councilmember, filling the vacant seat left by the former Councilmember, Sal Guarriello, who passed away in April.
On Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at 6 pm, Lindsey Horvath will be sworn in as a member of the West Hollywood City Council during a special meeting at the West Hollywood Park Auditorium (647 N. San Vicente Boulevard).
Ms. Horvath was already doing a great job as a contributing member of society in her position as chair of the City's Women's Advisory Board and other roles around the city. Many West Hollywood residents are looking forward to her coming aboard the City Council to see what she will bring to the city as a member.
Currently, Ms. Horvath's employment status is with the Canyon Design Group as an Entertainment Advertising Executive. She is also a graduate from the University of Notre Dame, where she has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science in Gender Studies.
Many residents here believe Horvath is perfect for the City Council position because she is a resident of West Hollywood herself and she has been very involved in the community and community organizations for several years. Horvath can boast that she is the President of the National Organization for Women - Hollywood Chapter, Chair of the City of West Hollywood's Women's Advisory Board of the West Hollywood Democratic Club, the President of the National Women's Political Caucus of the NWPC-LA Westside, Board Member of the Women's Reproductive Rights Assistance Project, a member of the Human Rights Campaign, a member of the Human Rights Watch, a member of Planned Parenthood and a member of Amnesty International. Wow! Where does she find the time?
It's looking like she will be a great asset the community of West Hollywood. I'm looking forward to seeing her positive influence around the community.
