James Duke Mason Announces Candidacy for West Hollywood City Council


Ran into James Duke Mason at the "Head Over Heels" on Broadway party last night and he tells me he is running for West Hollywood City Council. Have a look at what he hopes to accomplish if elected -- and consider making a donation below:


It's official- I've filed papers to run for West Hollywood City Council in the March 2019 election.
I'm running for a very simple reason: at a time when now, more than ever, people feel like they can’t count on Washington D.C. to look out for their interests, local government must step in and fill the void. In my time as a city official on the West Hollywood Lesbian & Gay Advisory Board (where I currently serve as Co-Chair), as well as during my tenure as a Board Member at the West Hollywood Community Housing Corporation, I have stood up for the communities in our city who need it most- the LGBT community, women, seniors, people with disabilities, people in recovery and low income people.
Those are the people that have helped to make West Hollywood the unique, diverse, beautiful and creative city that we are, and I want to be their champion on the City Council. There are several key issues that I will be focusing on in this campaign: ending homelessness, expanding affordable housing, protecting rent control, supporting small businesses and assisting our seniors so they can age in place and live their lives with a sense of stability and security.
Obviously there are a lot of other important issues that also require attention as well, including public safety and transportation. Once we have the full fledged campaign launch in January, I will be laying out a clear and detailed agenda about how exactly we will tackle each of these individual challenges. But in the meantime, I wanted to at least make my intentions clear before the end of the year so we can start 2018 with momentum!
I hope you'll consider being one of the founding supporters of my campaign by visiting the link below and making a contribution. The maximum amount per individual is $500, but whatever amount you can give would make a huge difference:
The journey ahead will not be an easy one. I know that it'll be tough to take on the status quo and bring a new generation of leadership to City Hall. But it's worth the fight, and together, I believe we will win- not just win this campaign, but win better future for all of us.
Thanks for your support, and have a great holiday season!
-Duke.
