Interesting to see how well the women performed in the West Hollywood election this year. Most of the men running this year weren’t close to being legitimate candidates.

Wow. I have weighed 167lbs for years, my address when I was a kid was 167 and I have helped and kept in contact with 167 homeless people in Weho and Hollywood over the past year. I don’t believe in superstition, but It’s all the more reason for me to run again in 2020. Besides, it was fun.

141 votes separated Sepie Shine and John D’Amico. 167 votes for Mr. Schmidt and 167 contacts with homeless people, interesting. Is it possible that these folks could have voted by absentee ballot? Hmmm. Will we ever know?
