Mayor Sam's Ballot Picks

By Monday, we'll give you my choice for Mayor of Los Angeles. But in the meantime, here are my official ballot recommendations for other contests on the ballots.

We are not endorsing in any race that is unopposed or in which we have no opinion. We also have no position on the two ballot measures which relate to pensions.

Controller

We’re voting for Laura Chick. She’s a pitbull and has challenged the status quo. Laura was even hired by the US Army to advise local bureaucrats to avoid corruption in Iraq. Lets keep her.

Council, District 3

We’d love to vote for someone as interesting and different as Jeff Bornstein, but we don’t live in the district. The LA Weekly loved his politics but felt that since Dennis Zine was already the incumbent, he was up to speed and would be ahead of the game more than Bornstein. So if you want to know what we think, who cares, vote for either one.

Council, District 5

You’ve told us again and again that Jack Weiss is an idiot. However, he did vote against the sales tax increase. On the other hand, Ty Vahedi sounds like a thoughtful and articulate guy. Since Weiss is part of the establishment – and like Survivor we should eliminate at least one incumbent for good measure – vote for Ty.

Council, District 9

We don’t know anything about Peter Torres or Edward “Eddie” Reyes (not to be confused with 1st District Councilman Ed Reyes) but after years and years of Rita Walters, Jan Perry is a refreshing change. She’s smart, pro-business and has served her district well. Send her back to Spring Street.

Council, District 11

Flora Gil Krissloff has a lengthy NIMBY resume, and Angela Reddock is an impressive young woman, but our vote goes to Bill Rosendahl. He’s an experienced communicator with a good knowledge of the city and a business background. It would be good to have someone with his personality and experience on the Council.

LA Community College District, Seat 6

Nancy Pearlman is the kind of LA pol we like to see lose an election. Gerald Wayne Pertulla is a teacher who is running for the spot, but we know little about him. Maria Grunwald-Agazaryan however is very young and very liberal, but we think she makes the best choice in this race. She has a long history of community activism and served on the Board of Trustees as its student trustee in the past, so she is no stranger to the district. She’s a parent and since she’s in the same general age range as many of the students, it might be a good move to have her on the Board.

Mayor Sam, bravo on your endorsement of Bill Rosendahl! Bill is an excellent choice for the Westside 11th Council District seat. He's got great ideas and an uncanny ability to build a coalition of supporters from opposing view points. Who else other than Bill Rosendahl can be endorsed by Norman Lear and Bill Simon? Probably no one. GO BILL GO!

Agree Weiss is one big loser and idiot. Get rid of his butt. I like the cop Peter Torres for CD9. He truly is an inspiration and lives in Newton Div. where he is an officer. He has a big heart for his community. I hope Mayor Sam you pick anyone but Attention Deficit Villaraigosa for Mayor. It amazes me how uninformed people are as to what an asshole he is and the damage he's done to his own community. Good for El Sereno coming out against him yesterday

You hate Weiss because he backs Villaraigosa and brings a lot of westside money and clout to the deal. Your endorsement won't save the guy running against him. LA Times has Vahedi looking like a animal rights wacko who can't get his facts straight. Maybe the poor guy can run for dog catcher if he doesn't embarrass himself even more before Tuesday.

Mayor Sam, c'mon with the Rosendahl endorsement. You think the LA Weekly would endorse a NIMBY? Fact is that Krisiloff has worked for the district for 20+ years and Rosendahl worked as a lobbyist for Century and Adelphia Cable during that same time. By the way Mayor, how many of our current City Councilmembers have an MBA like Krisiloff? Answer:0

I give you this, he knows how the City works. How else could he have sucked off it's blood for so long?

When you have stupid candidate who can't point to his accomplishments and does not have the cranial capacity for genuine thought, what else is there but the race card. This is how Johnny Cochran got O.J. off, and Tony's non-Latino handlers are looking to do the same. These conultants have a long history of fulfilling their "race victim" fantasies using minority candidates as their stooges. What is it that Parke Skelton always says, "We don't do white people, just minorities, gays and lesbians." What a way to advance the social situations of our truly disenfranchised minority populations - let's get some idiot who we can control. Even peace loving Gandhi got rid of all his white advisors before launching his revolution in India. He knew the importance of ownership. Parke obviously doesn't understand this and that is why Tony will never mobilize the Latino masses - they don't see him as someone they would take a bullet for and that is why he will lose again.

That was a quick response... obviously Tony V.'s handlers are on emergency "fire watch" (or maybe in L.A. that should be "mudslide" watch) for anything that might hurt their candidate late, in a tighter race then they anticipated (or told AV it would be when that started taking his money, again). Lip-service otherwise, their big guns are definitely concerned about who might be monitoring Mayor Sam's.

That's an endorsement you can take to the bank, Yorty. You DO matter!

It should be obvious to anyone watching the progress of the rerun Attention-Deficit Villaraigosa campaign that the "mantle" Villaraigosa most needs and wants to wear in order to get out of the CD job he hates and does so badly is NOT the one that has to do with his race/ethnicity -- it's the mantle of victimhood. He's been sitting back, cruising, waiting for someone to "go negative" against him (a misnomer since all his campaigns involve ADV "going negative" from the start). The only way he has ever won an election in Los Angeles is by garnering sympathy, portraying himself as the "poor victim" of negative mudslinging - all the while he stands caked up to his shoulders in the leftovers of mud he's been slinging endlessly at others.

Fall for it again, vote with your heart and not your head to elect "poor" Tony, but remember -- the POORest part of "poor" ADV® since he became a city employee, by any definition, has been his job performance. Feel sorry for the city this time, elect AB-ADV, and send Tony V. a sympathy card instead.

Oh, I am against Villaraigosa, make no mistake. And I agree with SacromentoNighties that Villaraigosa always plays the victim. Yet at the same time his supporters even on this site make the most slanderous statements about other candidates. Mr. Skelton is right to worry about his image and in turn he should worry about those people he or his minions so readily slander.

PARKE,

Touchy, touchy! I guess I struck a nerve with all that race victim fantasy talk. And you're right. The quote didn't come from you, but it did come from your office. I just verified the quote from Wayne Bannister, a candidate for county assessor in 2000. He went to your office to try and hire you but he was turned away by Allison Morgan and the direct quote is "We don't do straight white guys, just minorities, gays and lesbians." Why don't you call Wayne at the county assessors office, he'll tell you the same.

But should you really be playing all these little games while your "boy" is about to get hammered.

As for proud Mexican American, read Gandhi or watch the movie. There is a very important conversation between Gandhi and Walker (the "white" guy who was always by his side and ironically played by Mexican Amercian Martin Sheen in the movie). In the conversation Gandhi convinces Walker that from that point on, the revolution must be for Indians by Indians. There was no hint of bigotry or race baiting. Being the enlightened person that Walker was, he understood this and stepped aside. The result is the largest democracy in the world.

And Parke, you brought up the word slander. If you are worried about your reputation, maybe you should worry about the people you take under your wing. You still don't know everything about Tony, but you're about to find out. And if you want to sue me, go right ahead. I'll be happy to oblige your lawyers, I'll even go to your office to identify myself.

If this was a "sneak" attack from ADV, maybe they should put a muzzle on the meat-man, since he's been SHOUTING THE EXACT SAME CLAIMS FROM THE ROOFTOPS OF THIS BLOG 29/8 FOR WEEKS! (Look out, Hahn, ADV's people are STILL talking about corruption -- I think it's a TRICK!)

No kidding -- he doesn't even have to make the drive... I overheard this at a community meeting in CD14 back when Antonio was running for council. One minute he was talking to (someone he thought was) a middle-class Anglo and chatting her up about "gentrification" and attracting more "upper-middle income" families to the area and "upscaling" things (because he thought that's what she wanted to hear), and then 60 seconds later his other face was telling someone from a lower-income Latino family about the need for more "affordable housing" there. ALL in the exact same small community. This guy can switch pandering gears faster than most NFL QB's can call an audible. Funny thing was, the "middle-class" person he started pandering to was appalled, "where are we (she and her lower-middle class neighbors of all races) going to live when everything here get's upscaled?" - she asked later. Swear to God, I heard it all, start-to-finish!

OK, just for the record. Alison Morgan does not and has not ever worked for me or in my firm. She is my wife, and, until our 2nd baby was born, was one of the top Democratic fundraisers in the state. If Bannister called her, it was probably to try to contract with a fundraiser. I don't know what she told him, but she has worked for straight white males (Lockyer and Feuer come immediately to mind - neither of whom has been a client of my firm)

(Bannister by the way, went on to receive an impressive 1.7% of the vote, finishing in 12th place for Assessor. Looks like Ali made the right decision.)

Obviously guys who lose elections lie about what happened during them, to save face, right? Make's sense to me. Antonio lost the mayor's spot 4 years ago by an embarrasing margin (vs. a dull candidate), and he and his campaign people have been lying to themselves and everyone wlse who will listen about why and how that happened.

And this might surprise you, I probably have more Jewish blood than you do. And not Ashkenazi blood but true Hebrew descendant Sephardic blood. Remember, before 1492 there nearly 1 million Jews in Spain. Most of the Cruz's or De La Cruz's in Mexico have Jewish ancestry.

It's interesting how the discussion among the ADV following has changed from "ADV won't even make the runoff" to "he's going to lose in 6-7 weeks."

Sounds like a concession for Tuesday's election.

Not at all, NO concession -- unlike the ADV "lovers" on the list, there are differences of opinion among his detractors. Not all one mind. Wrap your cultish little Tony V. groupie mind around that, if you can. I posted the "6-7 weeks" and have always leaned that way. Sorry to confuse you -- this isn't someone's united campaign staff, it's not "bitter" Pacheco supporters from two years ago, it's not "Hahnistas" or "Hertzbergers" or some other group under the mind-control of one candidate. Speaking for myself, but from the sound of it, a lot of the other disgruntled CD14 people posting here... Tony V. WILL lose, the main point of difference among the non-group you try to group together is simply a matter of WHICH week this Spring it happens.

Antonio will make the runoff. If it's against Hahn, Villaraigosa definitely loses. If it's against Hertzberg it will be closer. But Antonio still won't be mayor.

I agree with you, except with the pair-up outcomes. I think it will be closer against Hahn, because of the damage from AV's corruption attacks from early on. Against Hertzberg, the numbers will nearly match the 2001 race, with Villaraigosa getting 1-2 points less than he did against Hahn last time.

No. No. No. In 6-7 weeks, Antonio will be recalled.

Viva The Recall.

Mayor Sam and Chief Parker are just two votes, MEAT. The overwhelming majority of posters here, I bet, will go with Anybody But Villaraigosa in the runnoff.

HEY, I'm all for a two-fer; lose the runoff AND get recalled for lying about running plus screwing around for the past year (or more) chasing a pipedream instead of serving the district. (And this is where his lovesick supporters chime in and say "Oh, but he can serve the district SO much better as mayor").

If that was the case, we wouldn't need city councilmembers at all.

Parke, I'm disspointed that you would spend your valuable time responding to such losers.

"I said already, in CD14 (while campaigning late 2002), and I heard it myself--both conversations, word-for-word. So, are YOU calling ME a liar, Mr. equally-anonymous-(hiding-behind-a-screen name)-81-percent-approval-rating-in-the-district? Don't even go there. Lies are the coin of the realm in Villaraogosa camp. He never met a lie he could use to pander to someone."

What city campaign were you working on? Not a city campaign year. Sure are defensive about being called a liar as being anonymous and not having any kind of hard examples to back up. To follow your knee jerk logic, I guess you're a fabricator.

ADV's attack ads on Hahn are backfiring. The perception is he's a crybaby. Bob's is much better. They're showing voters their character flaws. Its ok to gang up and bully for months then one person says the truth about them and its crying time. ADV will have to go back to a district that he has now alienated. His one supporters have turned on him and are on Hahn, Huggy and big group with Alarcon now. He threatened the district by telling anyone who would listen NOTHING HAPPENS WITHOUT HIM KNOWING IN THE DISTRICT. NO FLYERS FROM ANYONE SHOULD GO OUT WITHOUT MY NAME ON IT. He even has his name on all the SPAY AND NEUTER GOING ON IN BOYLE HEIGHTS. Maybe he should have been in line with the animals to get taken care of.

So what if Mayor Sam endorses Bob? You Hahn campaign staffers seem to be really agitated by that. If he was supporting your guy your tune would be different, you wouldn't dissing Sam.

Buzz around the third floor that in ITA's net usage monitoring Mayor Sam's site is the most visited followed by LA Times and Villaraigosa's campaign site. Imagine that! The porn sites aren't even in the top 10 anymore!

That's not even believable as a joke. With hundreds of employees, most of them oblivious to who runs the mayor's office, campaign sites are not even going to be on the radar (and Villaraigosa's boring site barely changes one item a day). Twit!

In the 3rd district, I support Jeff Bornstein. He is not some boring politician. He is progressive and with it. And he is a Democrat in a district that is 48 percent Democratic and only 30 percent Republican. Zine is an idiot and a right wing ex-cop who acts like a Democrat in his mailers!

Public Safety was Attention Deficit Villaraigosa's main issue when running for 14. There's been 14 homicides in 14 since Jan. and that little asshole hasn't said a word. Everyone knows ADV is a liar, sleazy and just look at LAT today. He's in a beauty shop with women (place he's most comfortable). He doesn't even try to cover up his addict behavior. You got Bitter Bernie dragging around poor Mohammed Ali who has no clue who's he's with or where he's at. A true hero but Ali so he's just being used. Huggy won't answer questions why he's getting paid $20,000 from his law firm if he's not working. Go Hahn!!!

Idiot - he's talking about the Mayor's office staff. I work in ITA and its true that most of those desktops are going to this site as well as porn sites. I wouldn't say Antonio is number 3, but a lot of folks from up there are surfing that site as well as Hertzberg and other blogs.

If you actually worked in ITA you fake mofo, you would know it's impossible to tell on a network of that size the specific net usage office-by-office, floor by floor, let alone run usage spikes down to specific sites. If the mayor's staff was looking at porn, and you could track it, they would have all been fired by now. Prove your silly fake claims, and report to the world and media what the mayor's staff has been looking at instead of working, or shut your fake wannabe lie-hole and go back to beating your MEAT!
