Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes gives "Monetary Thanks" to CD 2 Council Candidate, err, Assemblyman Paul Krekorian
One can only shake their heads and observe the result of one of Hacopian's better "Black Ops" in support of a candidate.
And for you Sierra Club members, your endorsement means what to Krekorian considering Fuentes past "commitment" to preserving Sunland-Tujunga's last piece of open space, the Verdugo Hills Golf Course.
The Fuentes association may not be helpful to Krekorian with some voters in the northern reaches of the district. Fuentes wrote a proposal, which was ultimately shelved, that would have allowed MWH Development Corp. to build 229 homes on the Verdugo Hills Golf Course despite the objections of neighborhood activists and Los Angeles city officials.
Politics as usual.
These comments from the LA Times story.

** What a crock? He just happens to run tv ads "thanking" the only member of the State Assembly who has an election in one week? Apparently, no other member of the Assembly deserved such thanks? What did Krekorian do that was so special and worthy of thanks in the worst budget crisis in the history of California?
Does anyone really buy this garbage? How stupid does Krekorian and Fuentes think we are?
Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but could it be do to the fact that the City's laws won't allow contributions that large, so Fuentes found a way around the law to donate $15,000.
Is there any wonder why Sacramento politicians are held in such low esteem? Shameless. I can see why he sent his lawyer to do all the talking for him. You know the old saying, "Keep your friends close and your lawyers closer."
