UPDATE: An earlier copy of this story was posted under the title : “Transportation Commissioner Adam Kroll played a prominent role in scooter debate disguised as ‘greeneyedguy’, Krolldenied that he is the infamous ‘greeneyedguy. We decided to pause the story on Saturday and update with Kroll’s denial’ There are only 2 choices, Kroll is ‘greeneyedguy’ or ‘greeneyedguy’ is using Kroll’s name.
As you read the story below you will see that upon learning of a connection between ‘greeneyedguy’ and Kroll I wrote to the city manager and city attorney and we did not publish any story. Neither the city manager or city attorney replied. But ‘greeneyedguy” sent an email to my personal address accusing WEHOville of substituting Kroll’s name on his post. How would ‘greenyeyedguy’ know of my personal letter to the city manager and city attorney?
The title has been updated and you can make up your mind – but we have chosen to take Kroll at his word and update the title with his denial.
WEHOville has banned ‘greeneyedguy’ from the platform for impersonating a commissioner, and we ask that you contact us if you are familiar with a person who uses an email address of [email protected].
As previously reported:
The direct appointee to the Transportation Commission Adam Kroll appeared to have outed himself as ‘greeneyedguy’ in the WEHOville comment section earlier this week. Both email addresses and IP address matched the infamous ‘greeneyedguy.’
Kroll, who is the direct appointee of Mayor Pro Tem John Erickson, would have breached multiple ethics and decorum rules while the scooter debate has been in effect over the past twelve to eighteen months if he was posting on social media under an alias.
When the mix in identity was uncovered, I went directly to City Manager David Wilson and City Attorney Lauren Langer writing:
I wanted to ask a question w regard to process. During the scooter debate there is a commissioner on the transportation commission who continually comments, and bashes commentators but his email gave away his identity. I know the Congress and ethics are taught – but what the remedy. This person is a direct appointee and frequent commenter bullying residents.
‘greeneyedguy’ wrote to my personal email, “WEHOville switched my user name.” – But thats not true, I personally approved the post and snapped a photo in real time..”busted greeneyed guy’.
Only the real ‘greeneyedguy’ would know his own posts.
It became clear that my letter to the City Manager and City Attorney made its way to Mayor Pro Tem Erickson and then to Transportation Commissioner Kroll. (or somebody else)
While posting in WEHOville ‘greeneyedguy’ often attacked residents, interfered with the public dialog and put his thumb on the scale of public debate.
In this post ‘greeneyedguy’ badgers former Disability Board Member and amputee Mikie Friedman:
“Let’s get real here for a moment. We all know you were never going to accept the results of the survey if they weren’t in your favor.”
In another post ‘greeneyedguy’ tries to argue the public perception of the scooter poll.
“A poll is fake because you didn’t receive a randomized invite? Thats not how this works, sorry!”
Kroll is the current Chair of the Transportation Commission. ‘greeneyedguy’ showed his deep knowledge of the scooter survey in another post “The survey was conducted in two rounds, one open to the general public and one from a randomized sample of verified West Hollywood residents. The survey met the necessary criteria for statistical validity with sample sizes of 516 and 537 for the two rounds, respectively. The survey found a slightly higher percentage of residents supporting the program (39%) than those opposing it (36%), with a significant portion being neutral (25%).”
In numerous replies to commenters, ‘greeneyedguy’ would hound those who spoke against scooters. And it did not stop at scooters. ‘greeneyedguy’ continued to harass residents and commenters on multiple articles.
“Care to do us a favor and sell your slumlord property and leave West Hollywood?
Let’s see your apartment, Ham. You just sound like an awful person to be around. Yikes!
So you left a comment 6 hours ago and came back 3 hours later to let us know how negative and miserable you are.
“You do realize people who peaked in HS tend to be losers later in life, right?”
‘greeneyedguy’ is a frequent WEHOville commenter with over 2,000 comments and is known as the ‘mean girl’ of the comment board. They also went after John Heilman on multiple posts.
“Remind me again what John Heilman has said? Any actionable words in support of the innocents in Israel from him?
Another Erickson direct appointee disguised as ‘Holloway Janet’ went after Heilman during the election attempting to confuse the mindset of voters between John Duran and John Heilman.
‘Holloway Janet’ wrote: Is this the one that was accused of SEXUAL ASSAULT?? And being on Grindr at meetings?!? Sorry weho but we can do BETTER. Holloway Janet is a current direct appointee of Mayor Pro Tem Erickson but his name been deleted out of respect for his family.
‘greeneyedguy’ continued to tow the Erickson line as anti-sheriff.
“Wait until you hear about LASD employees getting caught sexually abusing children, DUIs, or having sex on the job (google these incidents). Oh but that doesn’t fit the Wehoville narrative: LASD GOOD. Block by Block BAD
But one his best posts were to his confession or lie:
“I’m not John Erickson lol. In fact, I didn’t even vote for him back in 2020!”
The interference by ‘greeneyedguy’ took place during a heated citywide discussion over scooters. Should Mikie Friedman follow through on her threat to file a lawsuit against the City of West Hollywood for violations of the American with Disabilities Act this evidence would surely weigh heavily against the city for any infractions of ethics or decorum..
The was not any reply from the City Manager and City Attorney to my letter asking about “process.” It’s clear they are more interested giving cover then UNcovering unethical behavior.
