The West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee has endorsed the three incumbents and challengers Marquita Thomas and Brendan Hood in the March 5 election for three seats on the West Hollywood City Council.
The PAC also endorsed Measure B, a measure on the March 5 ballot that asks voters to affirm the City Council’s decision to permit the construction of the Arts Club on Sunset Boulevard. That project is opposed by Unite Here Local 11, the restaurant and hotel employees union, which was able to secure signatures of 10% of the city’s voters to put the measure on the ballot in the hope the Council’s decision would be rescinded.
The PAC did not announce a position on Measure Y, which would authorize the city to levy a 7.5% tax on recreational cannabis sales.
The incumbents endorsed by the PAC are John D’Amico, Lindsey Horvath and Lauren Meister.
