Planning Commissioner Brian Rosenstein Launches City Council Campaign

Rosenstein says he is "committed to preserving and improving" the quality of life of Beverly Hills residents.

In his first bid for Beverly Hills City Council, Planning Commission Vice Chair Brian Rosenstein told guests at his Sunday campaign kickoff event that his experience in civic government and his dedication to the community make him the right candidate for the March 5 election.  

"As vice chair of the Planning Commission, I've been committed to preserving and improving our quality of life by putting the concerns of our residents first," he said, adding that he has been "advocating for development that is respectful of the unique character and nature of our community." 

Along with the Planning Commission, Rosenstein has served on the Traffic and Parking Commission and City Council Small Business Task Force, and was on the ad hoc committee that wrote Beverly Hills' first historic preservation ordinance. He is involved with the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club, Temple Emanuel, and is a Beverly Hills Police Department volunteer, Beverly Hills Education Foundation supporter, Beverly Hills CPR board member and TEAM Beverly Hills graduate.

"He is pro-resident, pro-business and pro-schools," said former Beverly Hills Unified School District board member Steven Fenton, who introduced Rosenstein.

In looking to the future, Rosenstein—a fourth-generation Beverly Hills resident—said that if elected to council, he will make public safety, local business growth, fiscal responsibility and strong city schools his priorities. 

"He's bright, he's involved, he's spent a lot of time learning about the community," said A.J. Willmer, president of the Beverly Hills Rotary Club. "I don't see eye-to-eye with him on every issue but I know he'll make deliberate, informative decisions that are in the best interest of our city."

Some city leaders throwing their support behind Rosenstein include Councilman Julian Gold, BHUSD school board President Jake Manaster, and school board members Brian Goldberg and Noah Margo.

There are six council candidates running for three seats on the March 5 ballot.
