Mito Aviles, an unsuccessful candidate for a West Hollywood City Council seat in the 2011 election, has signed on to Lucas John Junkin’s city council campaign as treasurer.
Aviles moved to West Hollywood in 2008. He and his boyfriend, Chad Michael Morrisette, own CM Squared Designs, a company that manufactures window displays. Aviles and Morrisette sparked controversy in 2008 when they hung an effigy from their house at Fountain Avenue near Orange, a mannequin dressed as Sarah Palin.
Junkin, who announced his candidacy last Friday, also was an unsuccessful council candidate in the 2011 election. He operates the WeHo Confidential website and is a social event producer.
