The city’s cable TV studio has been renamed the Ronald L. Stone Telecommunication Center in honor of the late gay-rights activist who led the campaign to incorporate West Hollywood.
Stone, who was 40, died Aug. 27 as the result of AIDS.
A former U.S. Senate page and assistant to former Sen. Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.), he was often referred to as the “city father” of West Hollywood. He served on the citizens advisory panel that helped draft the city’s General Plan, and was chairman of the Telecommunications Task Force.
