Hernandez Issues Call to Support for the Solar 8
My opponent in the March 3rd 2009 election has set his political attack dogs on these dedicated community leaders. Individuals like Ron Kaye, Jack Humphreville and Soledad Garcia and the others have been strong voices and supporters of our efforts to fight Prop R and yes the Los Angeles County Seal.
"As a candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles, I have pledged one thousand dollars to their legal battle. I have also issued a challenge to all other Mayoral Candidates to step forward and do the same."
The attorney behind this attack is the Treasurer of the Mayors Re-election committee. He is also the attorney who represented the League of Women Voters and LA Area Chamber of Commerce against us in the Prop R Appeal.
As I began my campaign on December 12th, the day I qualified to be on the ballot, my funds are limited and I am very particular where they are invested. I do however see the fight facing the Solar 8 to be one which must be supported. We can talk and blog all we want but it must come right down to the basics. Unless they have the funds in order to put up a viable fight, we all lose.
As a candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles, I have pledged one thousand dollars to their legal battle. I have also issued a challenge to all other Mayoral Candidates to step forward and do the same. Put your money where your mouth is! Talk is cheap, but money talks loud and clear, so does the lack of it.
If you would like to join me in this effort, please respond to this e-mail with your contact info and we will see you in court on January 8th.
Candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles
