Catherine O’Hara Named Honorary Mayor of Brentwood

Emmy-wining actress and Longtime Brentwood resident assumes post

From the Brentwood Community Council

Brentwood resident and comedic legend, Catherine O’Hara, the 2020 Emmy winner for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for ‘Schitts Creek’, has been named the Honorary Mayor of Brentwood for 2021.
Ms. O’Hara, her husband, Bo, and their two boys, are long time Brentwood residents and known for their kindness, humility and neighborliness, and, while the Mayor title is honorific, the role of Honorary Mayor has been deeply rooted in Brentwood for 53 years.

The Brentwood Honorary Mayor shares their ideas, inspiration and support on community projects and strengthens our sense of neighborhood. Whether it’s planting trees or firing the starting gun at the Brentwood 5K, Brentwood Honorary Mayors are influential, fun-loving residents who are part of a special group including Mark Harmon, Sandy Duncan, Phyllis DIller, Marcus Allen and many, many others. The tradition started with the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce in 1967. Over time, the Chamber’s duties, such as the Memorial Parade and Centennial Dinners, eventually became part of Friends of Brentwood, which facilitates the Brentwood 5K run, provides extra care for the San Vicente Business District, helps local retailers and businesses with commercial issues and underwrites community programming.

In a lovely twist of fate, Ms. O’Hara’s long time friend and acting peer, Eugene Levy, has been selected as the 2021 Honorary Mayor of our neighboring community, Pacific Palisades. Mr. Levy was the 2020 Emmy winner for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, also for ‘Schitt’s Creek”. As luck would have it, these new honorary Mayors are looking to collaborate on ideas and we look forward to supporting their efforts.
