It's official! The California Secretary of State has accepted our nomination for the West Hollywood City Council race on November 3rd, 2020.
There's a lot at stake nationally but I'm worried locally about our neighbors who are losing their apartments or their businesses.
Since day 1 of the pandemic I've been delivering masks to residents to stop community spread. I want to rebuild our community village and restore the people's voice in city hall.
Please join us, community leaders for West Hollywood. We have an honest campaign for the public good. Please make a donation if you're able. But more important, vote and let your voice be heard.
Moving West Hollywood Forward
It’s the spring of 2024 and we have an exciting day ahead. Today we cut the ribbon to break ground at “WeHo House” the first co-op affordable housing unit in West Hollywood. This was the first item I brought forward with John Heilman after the 2020 election. Thirty-four residents will have the opportunity to have an equity stake in their affordable housing unit. ...Read More
I’m Ready to Serve
It was the summer of 2010, our city and the world were crawling out of the financial crisis. The BlockParty WeHo had opened the previous October 2009 at the old Different Light Bookstore. The patch over my left eye had just been removed after six months of surgeries. I was learning how to cope with...Read More

INTRODUCING... PEANUT AND BEANIE
A few years ago, Councilmember John D’Amico called and asked me to join him in a walk to West Hollywood Park. The park plans had been set but his quick response is the reason we have a dog park today.
This past year while serving as your 2019-2020 Chairman of the Public Facilities Commission we renewed our lease for Hart Park and will be updating Hart with an off-leash dog park and updated larger dog park. Parks and Green space make our quality of life better as residents and I’m committed to bringing more dog parks to West Hollywood and our furry friends.
Please join over 100 WeHo residents who believe it is time to move West Hollywood forward.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS
-DAWN MORENO-FREEDMAN 2019-2020 Chair Arts & Cultural Affairs Commission
"I have known Larry for 35 years and I’m certain he will be a good steward for the values and future of our city. He is an active and creative thinker and has gotten things done. He will certainly support more social services as well as enhance affordable housing and the ability to age in place. Please join me in supporting and voting for Larry."
—JOHN ALTSCHUL, Current and longest serving Planning Commissioner in West Hollywood History
"Larry Block has a big heart and he gives it all to WeHo. He is deeply passionate and focuses on issues that impact people’s lives. Whether it is handing out masks on street corners, improving conditions for seniors and the disabled, or making sure the rainbow flag continues to fly over City Hall for the LGBTQ community, you will find him at the center of the debate. I know Larry will do the right thing and I support him."
WeHo Heights Neighborhood Assoc. President
"As a resident and business owner, Larry Block has made a difference in West Hollywood. He has successfully advocated for safer crosswalks, senior housing, cleaner sidewalks and a sustainable quality of life for both renters and homeowners. With Larry as a resident City Council Member, we won’t be overlooked."
West Hollywood West Resident and former Chairman of Public Facilities Commission
"This time I am not going to have my vote be against another candidate, but my vote will be for someone I truly respect and whom I believe will be part of the solution and not the problem.
2019-2020 Chair Senior Advisory Board
“You can count on Larry Block to improve the quality of life for residents in West Hollywood.”
Appointed to the Planning Commission by Jeffrey Prang, Donald is the 2nd longest serving Planning Commissioner in West Hollywood history, also the namesake to the 'Donald Delluccio Democrat of the Year
Award' issued by the Beverly Hills/West Hollywood Democratic Club.
"Larry Block is the caring friend we need on the city council. It is very hard for seniors and people with disabilities to ask for help when they need it. In my case, Larry saw that I was in trouble, got down to business and just helped automatically! G-d bless him! In these difficult times, we need an anticipatory personality, not a reactive one on the city council."
—MYRA MIKIE FRIEDMAN,
Disability Advisory Board
"For over 15 years, I have known Larry to be a man of integrity, dedication, and passion. He has always been a champion of those in need and a defender of the principles and heritage that have made West Hollywood a uniquely wonderful place to live. Now, when that possibility seems to be eroding at every turn, we need Larry to protect our city."—KERRIGAN HENNINGS,
“Larry speaks from the heart and is pro-active and solution oriented. A vote for Larry is a vote for all of us.”
