Shawn Davis Mooney for West Hollywood City Council 2019
"A Fresh Set of Eyes"
My love affair with West Hollywood began when I first moved here in 1993. I have fond memories of my first job at the Pacific Design Center, back when it was just the blue and green buildings. I remember being impressed with the friendliness, cleanliness, eclecticism, and how safe it seemed. It was so inclusive and diverse from one end of the city to the other. So many different lifestyles and cultures, I knew it would be a lifelong love affair. Currently I live with my husband Shawn and our cat Jade in a quaint studio apartment in the Norma Triangle. Now, many years later, I walk around and reminisce of those early years and think about how can we preserve these qualities for future generations while embracing the growth and change of West Hollywood. For the last twenty years I have been a soldier in the U.S. Army, business owner, entertainer, as well as worked in the hospitality industry. My most rewarding position has been as a General Manager of two retirement communities. As a Senior Living Executive not only did I care for the residents, I also led and mentored a team of young adults. I worked closely with the California Workability program through the school districts. We had an excellent success rate, the young people graduated and either stayed employed with me, or moved on to other jobs and college. For the seniors, I was a friend, counselor, resource, and first responder. This is where I developed my desire to look out for all seniors and the disadvantaged. It is our responsibility to care for our seniors, especially our LGBT seniors who may not have anyone to care for them. Together we can ensure that not only do the seniors of West Hollywood have affordable housing, food, and healthcare, but every resident calling West Hollywood home has access to these basic human dignities. As a leader for most of life I have learned that not only must you listen to the need of those looking up to you, but you must also show them that you listened. I will be a steward of West Hollywood and preserve its eclectic history as well as serve you fairly.

Why Your Vote Counts
TO: Voters of West Hollywood,
This letter is to add my endorsement to Shawn Davis Mooney for election to one of the available seats on the West Hollywood City Council. I have known Shawn for several years while he was General Manager of the senior retirement facility where I live. Shawn quickly became popular among the residents because of his good humor and concern for the senior residents. He was always willing to help wherever help was needed. He is also intelligent and capable in a demanding managerial position. As one who spent well over 60 years in various office jobs, I had very high expectations for anyone coming into that job. Shawn met and exceeded those expectations. His concern for seniors as well as for the residents in Napa was apparent. Because Shawn once lived in West Hollywood and recently moved back there, he has been able to see the changes and is aware of what needs to be done to best serve the residents of West Hollywood to bring it up to the stage that will best serve the members of the community. His concern for all of you and his willingness to work hard to accomplish whatever is needed to best provide for the needs of all members of the community make him an ideal candidate for election to the West Hollywood City Council. I do hope you will give Shawn your vote for one of the available seats on the West Hollywood City Council. He will work hard to do whatever is needed to provide you with a safe and beautiful place in which to live. His concern for those who need help to afford to live there in a clean, affordable, and safe community is such that you can find no better candidate for the West Hollywood City Council than Shawn Davis Mooney.
Sincerely,Alma P. Smith, Resident of Springs of Napa Senior Retirement Facility
