Help Make WEHOville Better!

Almost four years after its launch, WEHOville has achieved its goal of providing a forum where West Hollywood residents can learn about and debate local issues. But there's more to be done!

Editor's note: We believe debating the issues relevant to our city helps foster an informed and engaged community, and that's why we invite you to submit guest commentaries to editor@wehoville.com. Selected pieces will run below. Opinions, commentary and other essays posted in "Let's Discuss" are wholly the view of the author. They do not necessarily represent the opinion of WEHOville.com.
