On June 29, 2017, West Hollywood became the 13th community to call on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings of President Donald Trump.
“Impeachment should be reserved as a last resort,” said West Hollywood Mayor John Heilman. “In less than six months in office, President Trump has already violated federal law by attempting to obstruct justice, and his administration is plagued by numerous conflicts of interest. We need to hold him accountable.”
With this resolution, West Hollywood has joined a growing number of cities, including the California cities of Los Angeles, Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, and Richmond, as well as the Massachusetts cities of Brookline, Cambridge, Amherst, Pelham, and Leverett, in calling for the initiation of impeachment proceedings.
