It was the best night of her life. A city was being born, and poised skittishly at center stage on the night of Nov. 29, 1984, was Valerie Susan Terrigno, new mayor of West Hollywood and the first acknowledged lesbian leader of an American community.

Land's impressive vote margin of more than 2 to 1 over La Pietra ended a gay majority on the five-member council and confirmed the enduring political clout of the Coalition for Economic Survival, the tenant activist group that has now elected three of its members to the council.
