There’s never a dull moment in West Hollywood, a town of a little more than 34,000 people squeezed into 1.89 square miles who aren’t reluctant to make themselves heard (Jeanne Dobrin comes to mind) and seen (who can forget the Speedo-wearing Michael Crosby speaking at a WeHo City Council meeting last May?). That’s not to mention quieter folks like WeHo Jesus and our beloved Biker Tranny.
Then there are those who really have made their influence felt this year (for better or worse) on West Hollywood and the surrounding communities that we embrace as part of WEHOville. WEHOville is poring through its coverage over the past year and talking to those who are in the know to get a sense of the influencer(s) who really have made a difference and should be recognized for that with the WEHOville Person of the Year award we will bestow next month.
On the following pages, take a look at who we are considering. Use the comment section below to choose from among them or suggest someone else we should be thinking about. We won’t post the comments, but we will list who our readers have recommended when we announce WEHOville’s Person of the Year in the first week of January 2014.
Our ultimate choice may well be someone not on our list, someone you have recommended. And remember, we’re looking to call out someone who has made a significant impact on our little burg. It can be someone you love, or someone you love to hate. (After all, consider that Time magazine named Adolf Hitler its Man of the Year in 1938!)
