Maybe Another CD14 Choice?

Races for elected office often attract long-shots, but from time to time, non "front-runner" candidates can present an interesting alternative to the lesser of two evils.

Such is the case in the 14th Council District where the two front runners Jose Huizar and Nick Pacheco are seeking to complete the unexpired term of Antonio Villaraigosa following his election as Mayor.

One of the other candidates on the ballot is Ruby De Vera. De Vera served as a staffer for former Council Members Richard Alatorre and Jackie Goldberg and currently works for Council Member Ed Reyes.

Ruby is a native of the Phillipines, but has lived in California since 1970. Prior to her government service Ruby worked in real estate development and insurance. She also has a long resume of community service and activism.

The big news about Ruby lately is that at a recent meeting of the Northeast Democratic Club is she outpolled Pacheco nearly 3 to 1 in a straw poll of member preference.

Ruby has an interesting platform of addressing traditional, red meat community issues. Interesting to note that given that one of her opponents is President of the Los Angeles Board of Education, she has picked up the endorsement of the past President of the Los Angeles Community College Board, Mona Field.

I know some of dum dums will blog away about your love for Huizar or Pacheco, but take a look at this interesting candidate. You can't say you don't have choices.

Interesting that none of her former bosses (tha are or were elected officials) are endorsing her.

Ruby was put up to run by Tony and Reyes to siphon the Filipino vote from Pacheco. Nick had always had success with this community and was a shoe in toget their support this time around. Huizar, having no hope for this block of voters needs to rely on Parke's and Reyes divide and conquer strategy. Guess who Ruby will endorse in the runoff? This is typical of Reyes staff, just being used as pawns since they can't muster any original thoughts themselves.

I think Pacheco has shown he cares a lot about his district - nobody knows it better than him. Like Ruby I am sure Huizar cares about his district. But Pacheco must be the first choice if we are going to get CD14 moving again. 2 wasted years of Antonio can't be followed by another wasted 2 years by a novice.

PEOPLE, get REAL.

CD14 was redistricted PRIMARILY to create another LA-TI-NO seat on the city council.

The district is 70+ percent LA-TI-NO.

The NEXT CM WILL BE LA-TI-NO, and the one after THAT, and the one AFTER that, and the one AFTER that. . .


The only REAL question here is whether it will be a U.S.-born Latino, like Pacheco, or a MEXICAN-born Latino, as HUIZAR is ACTIVELY promoting himself in the Spanish language press. REPEATEDLY, he is saying "I will be the first MEXICAN (not Mexican-American!) on the L.A. City Council. (Is this playing the NATIONALITY CARD???)

(Only he doesn't say THAT to the gringo reporters!)

No one knows Ruby for someone who has been around CD14. She hasn't been to any of the BIG community meetings. Even people on her side of the district have never heard of her. Seems the only people who know her are friends. A small group of activists on her side of town. She's been weak at the CD14 debates so far. Just like Jose all of a sudden these people come out of the woodwork and think they can do a better job. NOT!!

They know he's running for governor and would like to be nice to him NOW so they can jump on his staff. (ie Jack Weiss, Laura Chick, Alex Padilla) or get an endorsement so he or she can be Mayor (Hertzberg, Parks, LaBonge)

Jury duty selection is not as random as they make it out to be. Parke has nothing to deliver for the first 100 days so what better than to get his buddies in the county courts to drum up some PR for a failing mayor. As always, distract, DIStract, DISTRACT!

I do too, and I think I started it!

Joseph Mailander is another Villaraigosa operative. Don't get mad Joseph, we know your little tricks.

Hah hah hah hah hah! I supported Antonio as a voter, not an "operative." BTW, I'm not mad at anything. I think it's hysterical you think I'm a dirty trickster. You, the guy with no name on your message. I'm a writer, not an operative.

Beyond that, I'm genuinely interested in what dynamic Ruby de Vera presents to the campaign. If anything, she could be the person who forces a runoff; if she were to draw, say, 8%, she's in a position to broker her constituency, and she'll defer to Huizar, no question. But watch Nick turn that against Jose the second it happens.

If Ruby gains traction (and by "traction" we mean as little as getting a mere 500 votes out of Eagle Rock), it doesn't matter if she takes votes from Jose or Nick, because they are going to be so close. What matters is if she draws enough votes to herself to force a runoff between the two.

And of course, if she were to draw traction suddenly and soon, she wouldn't be gunning for broker...she'd be looking at overtaking Jose somewhere in the low twenties.

Years as an "assistant" and "deputy" don't mean squat until you've had to arm wrestle the rest of the CMs for your district's funds and benefits, plus NOW, a meglomaniac mayor who wants to control everything!

That's wrong. The whole existence of Tom LaBonge proves it wrong. It is an enormous advantage in an election simply to know how the City works. He almost beat Jackie, one of the most well-matched pols in the State to her constituency (I'm talking about her old district), through his intimate knowledge of pothole politics, and finally succeeded eight years later.

Think of this past mayoral election. Villaraigosa cleverly got his buddies Bitter Bernie Parks and Bob Hertzberg to essentially neutralize my key voting blocs,South LA and SF Valley, forcing those folks who would have vote for me to vote for someone else.
Then when the run-off came those who voted for the other candidate (Hertzberg or Parks) didn't bother to vote in the run-off.

But, AV don't EVER want to lose again, and he'll wait until he's VERY sure the field is trailing Arnold by double-digits before he fakes us all out with that "people are begging me to run" crap all over again.

let me give you the list of who satys and who goes once the movie stars have left . I am going to be brutally honest.

People who stay:

Rocky delgadillo

Antonio Villaraigosa

James Hahn

Tom Labonge and Dennis ZIne until the bitter end , when they get pooped and the kids from the churches take over.

And beleive it or not our Police Chief WIlliam Bratton stays after the major stars are gone. He serves lunch while busting the dope dealers at the same time in front of the florence hotel next to San Julian PArk. Because while he is serving lunch , the dealers are right across from him on the sidewalk and I watch them being busted, while he serves.

People who leave when the stars are gone:

Grey Davis except christmas he comes out when santa is here, and stays there.

I am trying to remember what other poles leave early , James would come late but he would leave early to attend city business, I am sure AV will be doing the same.

We love it when the poles come out especially the mayor.

Bernard Parks actually does the Fred Jordan Mission , which is a lot tougher than the LA Mission because you don't set the tables with food first , you actually are a waiter and have to serve the people that way. He gets lots of hugs from the people when they do that. But the LA Misison is rough because I have seen Antonio and Tom Labonge stand there for ove 4 hrs putting food on the plates. James Hahn liked to get in line fill up the plates and deliver the plates to the tables, that is a lot of work . Not good photo ops though when you do that.

Jan Perr is here all of the time. Steak luncheon for vets on Veterans day , she comes down and visits us all of the time to see what we need , mnay people here have direct access to her office and her and veterans who need help with the VA are referred to Lucille Roybal Allard, thorugh her office. She actullay has I think 3 or more legislative deputies who handle homeless and deal with conistituents here in Central city East.

So to me it doesn't matter if she serves us at the missions because she will always fight for us in her own way.

I rmember the so called anti-feediing ordinance , although it didn't pass , now the people who come and set up tables on the streets use gloves , and hair nets and make sure the way they serve the food is hygenic. She fought to move the midnight mission to 6th and SAn PEdro and no matter what anyone says about it being part of gentrification , we here appreciated it, because more people were able to get in their program including friends of mine who I thought weren't going to make it with their drug habits are now in the midnight mission program and are doing well.

So Jan gets the free card , get out of jail , because she actually tends to us.

But I tried to lsit who I could .

I know there are other poles , but I only psoted those whom I know stay after the cameras are gone.

Huggy well. he didn't win , but he stayed until the cameras and the movie stars were gone.

I think for moral purposes of those of us who live here , it is disapointing when we don't see the mayor come down. But Dennis ZIne and Tom labonge must have screws loose because they will stay until the bitter end and wind up talking withe people on the streets.

I remember once people ran up to me before antonio ran against Nick.

They wanted to know who it was that had passed out blankets from the back of a truck on the coldest night of the year. It was nick .

The biggest problem with NIck was that he had this attitude of when he did good deeds down here he wouldn't let anyone know. It was literally like pulling teeth when I was asking during redistricting what he had done in this neighborhood , it turned out he did quite a lot , but it almost felt like he was embarrased to have some of he most neediest people in his district and he actually did things for us.

How are people supposed to know to vote for you if you don't know if they have done anything. It aint bragging it is being accountabnle to the people.

Good f...ing point, Dgarzila. Pacheco the anti-Villaraigosa. Pacheco did a lot and never told people. Villaraigosa did nothing but told people he did everything.

Just FYI,

Eli Broad is a Democrat and he can't stand Riordan and Soberoff. I know because he supported my re-election bid.
