Same Old Clowncil To Come Back
Four more years of Tom LeBong, Bitter Bernie, Sleeping Greig Smith and the rest here on Villaraigosa's Island. Lots more lame ass declarations and multi-million dollar court settlements.
The two candidates who are opposed are Tony Cardenas in the 6th and Jose Huizar in the 14th.
Cardenas will be opposed by Lisa Matrtellaro-Palmer, Eric Rothenay, longtime activist and Zuma Dogg hero Candido Marez and the candidate who threw Cardenas into a run-off with Wendy Greuel four years ago, businessman and neighborhood council president Jamie Cordaro. Cordaro's support surely helped Greuel best Cardenas in a run-off to succeed Joel Wachs who resigned to take a job in New York. Later, Ruth Galanter's sixth district was packed up in a U-Haul and moved to the central San Fernando Valley to be handed over to the well coiffed Cardenas once the Ruthster termed out a few months later.
This old, dead Republican Mayor is endorsing Jamie Cordaro, but more on that later.
Down in our favorite part of the Sister City, CD Catorce (thanks Mailader) yet another battle royale this time between freshman Councilman Jose Huizar and long time eastside operative Alvin Parra. Man get ready for the cutting and pasting! We just might start selling CD14 "80 Fake Neighborhood" Watches.
There are some contested races for the school board and the college board, but ho hum. Who cares. Filing for David Tokofsky's school board seat is still open due to his late withdrawl from the race as well as for that of Alex Padilla's former council seat in the north Valley.
There's still time for you Zuma Dogg.
