The “Other” Council Race
As all you political hacks know, there are two council seats currently up for grabs. But it seems that – for the most part – the months long behind the scenes politicking for the position of Council President and the election for Assistant President Pro Tem (APPT) has been off the radar screen.
Word is that Councilman Alex Padilla is a shoe-in for a second term as Council President, but the Sister City received a tip that the APPT spot will go to Councilwoman Wendy Greuel.
While this story can’t be confirmed until the final vote takes place this Friday morning at 9:00 a.m., seeing Greuel replace Garcetti would not surprise council watchers. Garcetti may have burned bridges when he sought to take the presidency away from Padilla by courting other members for their votes. I guess we will know if Wendy out-maneuvered her colleague soon enough!
Let us know what you hearing.
