LA Blade | Troy Masters - He has served on the majority openly gay City Council since West Hollywood was incorporated in 1984. You could call him a founder. Well, in fact, he is.
Mayor John Heilman is one of the longest-serving openly gay elected officials in the U.S, having previously served as mayor in 1990, 1995, 1999, 2001, 2006 and 2010.
He still has a forward-looking vision for the city he loves.
