More on Ruby de Vera

Martini Republic's new "Overnighter Blog" forum posts an interview with one Ruby de Vera, candidate for CD 14.

Interesting read for all you CD14's who love to spout off the company lines from your respective camps.

I question the timing of her just "sudden" oh she's a good candidate for CD14.

This is all a clever scheme by The Antonio Villaraigosa Team. Why do you think all the council members are sucking on his "little brown dick"? Endorsing Huizar who has no credentials. 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)

To focus attention away from Jose Huizar's LACK of accomplishments. Ruby is just a decoy to siphon votes away from Pacheco.

Think 2000 Presidential Election and Ralph Nader.

Also 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.

Watch your back Pacheco!

My point is if she's such as good candidate with this kind of background, much like Jim Alger you guys would have but attention to her from the on set. But the adminstrators went directly for Pacheco.

The only reason to trumpet a second-tier candidate like this when there are two major players in the race is SO transparent as to be silly. . .

It's not giving people another "choice," it's diluting the impact of those who know the score while ALSO assuring that the DRAMA between Huizar and Pacheco will continue on into next year via a costly city-only runoff next January (when there's no state special election scheduled to at least defary some city costs).

Any of the also-ran candidates -- the de Veras, the Heck-mans, the JJJJJJJ Jimenezes, the Gonzalezes, who SAY they really CARE about the district (and NOT just their own political profiles), would bow out NOW, and endorse whichever of the two REAL possibilities they feel is the better choice. This would spare the district ANOTHER 2-3 months of election anguish and still NO representation on city council.

For AV-lovers, that means there's been no real representation for the District for nearly a year.

Everyone else realizes CD14 has been without a council presence of any consequence since July 2003 (going on THREE years), when AV took the CM oath while simultaneously (unofficially) started his second campaign for Mayor.

I rode my bike by Ramona Hall yesterday evening and two kids putting up "Hackman" (or "Heckman"?) signs. I asked them why they were doing it, and they said that Hackman was running for the 14th Council District, and was having a fundraiser at the hall.

One of the kids said he was the candidate's son. A nice enough kid, but when he told me his dad is a Republican I couldn't stifle my laughter.

The question I've been thinking about since last night is: "Is it legal to hold a campaign fundraiser at one of the City's community centers?"

I think it should be legal so that candidates don't have to rely on tons of cash to rent out hotels, etc.

However it seems like a bad thing to have people using city facilities to run for office. I guess I'd rather have it out in the open (like at a community center or on the web), rather than at some rich person's house or some exclusive club or something. That way the little people (like me) can get more involved if we want to.

I saw the group going in there -- at Ramona. . . 80 percent White and upper middle class.

CD14 is 80 percent -- NOT either one!

(OH, and for you "geographers" - Ramona Hall is where? Right. . . in CD1, NOT CD14).

Jesus, give the kid a break! So he got the wrong Council District wrong, Big Friggin deal. You should get some weed or something to calm you down

The focus should be on doing Campaign Fundraisers on City Property.

George, you've toked one too many!

Don't know which "he" you want to give a break to, but the POINT was why would a candidate for CD14 council hold events in ANOTHER district, miles outside the district boundaries (or maybe that candidate just doesn't KNOW where the district is actually bounded). That's what happened when AV's people took over CD14 offices. . . they didn't have a clue where district 14 stopped and 1 or 13 began. (Some still don't).

There are dozens of venues IN CD14, why not there?

And the "focus" of that REPLY (not the P.S.) was ACTUALLY on the makeup of that candidate's support. Not even close to the demo of the district.

More wasting of people's time... another "Wacko Walter" charge of the light-weight brigade -- except in CD14, now, it's "Bonkers Brian" pulling a few hundred or even a thousand key moderate and right-o-center votes away from a viable CM option, insuring that the MOST liberal Dems gets into a runoff against each other.

I want to know why is our Mayor in another city "Burbank" for photo ops helping building houses with Humanity Habitat? Hasn't he missed enough time out of city hall?

YEARS worth of time out of city hall (2.5-plus)!

I will vote for that Republican. About time a real candidate showed up to run for CD 14. As for holding a campaign fundraiser at a community facility...ask Villaraigosa, he did this all the time, and it worked out for him. Huizar has had many events at our community facilities. Don't laugh so soon, your almond joy mayor will soon be impeached.

Where is Ramona Hall? Address? We are many in CD 14. The republican party is getting stronger and stronger. Stop spreading lies that all Republicans are upper class, that is YOUR perception!

Nobody said ALL REPUBLICANS are "upper class". . . (I'm a Republican, a very un-wealthy one).

Someone said Heck-man IS a Republican.

I said I saw the people attending his fundraising event (AND the CARS they left in -- WOW).

BELIEVE me, no one's hurting for cash in that group.

Perceptions CAN be reality, too. And ALL a vote for a candidate like that is good for is assuring that the most LIBERAL DEMOCRAT will win.

Just ask the people who THOUGHT they were voting for GOP Walter Moore, earlier this year, but REALLY made sure ACLU-loving Antonio became the next mayor.

STUPID, stupid partisans. Can't see the burning forest for the trees.

Take a lesson, you point the barrel of the gun AWAY from you when you fire it, not AT yourself.
