Boy Meets Council: 90’s TV Star Ben Savage Seeks Office in West Hollywood

90s kids, rejoice. Actor Ben Savage — who played Corey Matthews on the hit sitcom Boy Meets World from 1993 to 2000 — has announced his candidacy for the West Hollywood City Council.

Savage, 41, has been a resident of the city for 18 years. 

“People have become disappointed with the direction the city is heading,” Savage explains on his campaign website. “Residents and community leaders have expressed frustration with the political divisiveness and loss of a sense of community. People are eager for leaders who can talk to each other, build coalitions, work together on common sense policies and put the interests of the city and residents above their own.”

Savage attended Stanford University and interned for Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) while he was a student. 

Savage will appear on the Nov. 8 ballot. He lists his priorities as leadership; community safety; strengthening the local economy; and housing and homelessness.
