The Little Story That Could

A little over a week ago, we posted a minor story which the LA Times even staffed out regarding CD 11 Council Candidates Flora Gil Krisiloff and Bill Rosendahl sparring over Rosendahl's ballot designation. Both the comments generated on that post and the Daily Breeze article following up basically call the disagreement an argument in semantics. I figured a one day story and a notice of attention to the "other" contested LA race going on would be a great change of pace. One commenter even nicely summed it up for us:

You say to-may-toe,
I say to-mah-toe
You say po-tay-toe,
I say po-tah-toe
Let's call the whole thing (Krisil)-off

Well, Rick Taylor must still be licking his wounds from the Measure A debacle, because he just won't let the foolishness die. He's actually giving this joke of a story legs. Thanks to a tipster, I got the pleasure of reading a story via the the Argonaut who's lead story is titled: LA City Council candidate Flora Gil Krisiloff challenges ballot title for opponent Bill Rosendahl. My favorite line is the following:

Krisiloff said she will take the challenge to court if Rosendahl's title is not changed, because of the seriousness of the issue.

Just a thought, there are probably a few more serious issues that she might want to be focusing on when she is running in the district known primarily for containing the most NIMBY's. I'm sure many of you have some thoughts about what those issues are, so feel free to point them out to them here. If they wanted more attention, here they go. Dinner is served.

I've met Bill and he seems like a nice guy. As long as he takes care of the parks, he has my vote.

This story is hilarious! Did you see the accompanying column the editor of the Argonaut wrote? He headlined it "Flora's first fling at foe has Flora looking foolish." And his first line is "How not to run a campaign for the Los Angeles City Council."

Congrats, Mayor Sam, on getting the much deserved attention. However, I look at this issue a little differently. I see the reports as showing that Rosendahl is trying to deceive voters by claiming that he's a professor. A quick internet search proves that he's been a cable industry executive for most of his professional career - well over 20 years now! He doesn't have a Ph.D., no published academic work or anything else most people assume about professors. At best, he's lectured to a couple of classes. Most who attended college never considered their TAs professors, yet they have more academic experience than Rosendahl.

Sadly, Rosendahl is trying to change his life story at age 59. He doesn't want to own up to his Exective VP position with the corrupt and now bankrupted Adelphia Cable Corporation because he knows voters won't like it.

In fact, if you take a look at his website you won't see anything that says he was a cable executive. It's a shame that Rosendahl and his consultant are choosing to lie to voters in this campaign. The residents of CD11 deserve better than this!
