Tamar at bat.

"I am pleased to endorse Tamar Galatzan for the Los Angeles City Council, 2nd District. Having worked with Tamar for many years, I know she will be an outstanding representative for the Valley and Council District 2,” said Chiang, a former Valley

“As your State Controller, I know how important it is in these tough times to have people at all levels of government who understand budgets and can make the choices necessary to continue key services for the community. I know that Tamar has both the qualifications and the heart necessary to be a great councilmember for Los Angeles, and I fully support her,” continued Chiang.

"I am proud to have the support of my good friend, John Chiang," commented Galatzan.
"His courage and perseverance during the state budget crisis has earned him nationwide respect. I look forward to the City of Los Angeles working more closely with the State Controller during this budget crisis."

I think he is endorsing Tamar because she likes to bake cookies and be seen playing baseball and tell you that she came in second in the LAUSD 10K run. All of that makes her qualified for the job. Using you LAUSD money to send out mailers when absentee ballots are in the same mailbox is always better than a box full of brownies, anyway. When she says, "WE still have much, much more to do," what she really means, "I hope to be making much, much more money and walking away soon."

Worthless endorsement.

Tamar's decision to intentionally flout City ethics rules because they're poorly enforced is brazen and sick.

As a Councilmember she'd be power-mad and would listen to no one. Essel and Krekorian are much better choices.

When your own candidate has nothing going for him or her, no experience in public service, keep making nasty comments that show your lack of character while filing bogus "ethics" charges and attacking the ethics commission if nothing sticks. Shut up Shallman, your dirty tricks playbook is out of new tricks, we can read you a mile away.

What dirty tricks? Did she, or didn't she not do what is being reported? It's not a matter of who is saying what about this. It's about what the candidate did and goes to her character and what can be expected from her as Council representative. Do you think there is anyone out there, who no matter how much they liked Galatzan in the past, who liked this move on her part? Sorry, not about people buzzing about it, it's about what was done by the candidate.
