Job Opening

Patrick McGreevy reports on the jockeying already underway for those who wish to assume Mayor-Elect Villargaigosa's council seat.

Of course the front runners are school board President Jose Huizar, former councilman Nick Pacheco and Assemblyman "One Bill" Gil Cedillo.

Maybe Eliseo too?

Now if Doug and Linda Boyd had their shit together, we'd have a decent Latino Republican who could run in that race and start to make a difference. But hell, that would mean that they would actually have to do some work wouldn't it.

(And by the way - for those of you who think its "pie in the sky" to get Latinos to vote for the GOP, don't be so smug. Everyone knows that Latinos vote Democrat but live Republican.)

Pacheco was, and is, the closest thing to a moderate that this district would ever embrace. He got decent support from Republicans in his district, and worked with everyone, despite their party or race.
