Jose Huizar for Councilman
When Huizar was first running for elected office he was the only school board candidate to get the endorsement of the UTLA and (then) Mayor Richard Riordan. He has shown a willingness to listen to both sides and that's why both sides support him. As a republican junkie, i've always had a soft spot for Dick Riordan, while he is a RINO, his heart was always in the right place. And his heart is with Jose, as is mine.
Working as President of LAUSD Mr Huizar has pushed and prodded the district into measurable reform initiatives to strengthen the classroom and the students experience in school.
While he did support Mr Pacheco during his council reelection I think a fresh start is needed for council District 14 -- Pacheco represents the divisive past.
To Mr Huizar -- while i don't know the direction Mayor Sam will go -- this law and order chief is with you -- and i don't even know if you've declared yet.
I wanted to be the first blogger to let my feelings known.
