The We Know Weho team is making the rounds and getting to know the candidates who are in the running for City Council seats this upcoming November. Today we interview Noemi Torres (we interviewed Sepi Shyne earlier) and will be reaching out to others on the ballot. Noemi is dedicated to helping lift people out of poverty and out of homelessness and has volunteered with Project Angel Food for 15 years as well as the Downtown Women’s Center, RED EYE, and the Skid Row Carnival of Love. She also served on the board of Ascencia, a local organization that has provided services and affordable housing to homeless individuals and families since 2006.
In 2014, Noemi became involved in the City of West Hollywood’s Women’s Advisory Board, supporting women’s rights, pay equity, and advocacy for women. In 2017, she was appointed to the Public Facilities Commission by West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey Horvath. Because of her volunteer work and advocacy with numerous community organizations, Noemi was named Woman of the Year in 2017 by Congressman Adam Schiff.
Lauren and Tracy have a good discussion with Noemi about the homeless and affordable housing solutions in West Hollywood as well as other policy points under Noemi’s campaign.
La Boheme is the hot topic in this week’s Food and Fashion segment with the entire town talking about the new charming outdoor patio that has popped up in the valet lot and a happy hour that serves amazing bites for a great value – available seven days a week. Tracy has already been to the newly opened GGet (Go Get Em Tiger) coffee shop on the corner of Harper and Santa Monica and gives her food critic review of the breakfast burrito and the tasty flaky creamy Bun Bun. In Health & Wellness, Lauren and Noemi compare notes on their favorite West Hollywood IV Drip locations Hydration Room and Nergy Boost and they all share their thoughts on the outdoor hair salon concept and find out where you can get an outdoor pedicure!
