A Picture You Won't See From The Essel Campaign

Community Leaders from across CD2 gather at a round-table meeting and BBQ hosted today by Paul Krekorian to discuss the upcoming election and the ongoing efforts by deep pocket special interests to buy the CD2 seat for Chris Essel.

Paul had invited community leaders from around CD2 to discuss the election and the ongoing misinformation coming from the Essel Camp. Also a big topic was the lawsuit filed by the DWP union (IBEW) to overturn a 20 year old ethics law in order for them to give even more money to Chris Essel. A Judge wisely tossed out that effort last week. Everyone got a good laugh out of Essel's latest flier attacking Paul for raising a million dollars. What the flier doesn't say is that Paul raised a million dollars during the course of four separate campaigns over the years!! Chris has raised $1.5 Million in just the last 6 months for a City Council seat. Somebody wants the developers friend, Essel, in office very badly!

What you won't see from the Essel campaign is a picture of her campaign office filled with volunteers. Instead, according to our source who visited her office today, you will see a room with 2 paid staffers. Be on watch for a staged photo from her in the coming days.

More News: Paul has just received another endorsement. Read about it HERE.

Oh what he thinks if the community people like him then he will win? Nope, Essel will buy this election.

If you like it or not say respect Essel she will be elected.

There will be a storm of another Million to support her. There is 49 Mail peaces that will be going out for the last 7 Mail days.

The only way Essel can win is if turnout is low. She has very few supporters in CD2, but she is trying to get those that normally don't vote to go to the polls. It's her only hope. Please vote on Dec 8th and stop this money machine!!

The equivaltant meeting in Essel's office will have:

Brian D'Arcy
Frank Sheftel

Riordan would have been there too but he would probably get lost driving to the meeting.

Sheftel & Hernandez have really blown it with their endorsement of Chris. No one takes Jennerjahn seriously except Jennerjahn.

Essel is going to smack Krekorian down on Tuesday Dec 8th. It is going to be a mandate for change! Shut the NC's up and bury the Nimbys alive!

"Working Californians", the group that Brian D'Arcy chairs and just filed (and lost) a lawsuit to overturn a LA ethics law so they could give Essel more $$$$$$$$, was formed originally as a front group to try and pass Measure B. Essel and her supporters are as fake as they come! Don't by the BS!

Anyone see Walter Moore's dumb post that voters should boycott this election? Deep thinking on Wally's part. Yea, don't vote. Great.

Not hard to see who the community supports at this point.

CD2 staff is freaking out that they may all lose their jobs. Threats are flying, bullying supporters of Krekorian, possible jail terms for CD2 shady dealings. Reports are coming out of the woodwork. They are terrified to be exposed if Chris loses.

For criticizing her open campaigning
for Chris Essel?

200,000 plus people live in CD2 you morons.

Aren't you even a little embarrassed to show such a small turnout of supporters at the round table? They could have fit into a booth at Jerry's Deli.

"Sources" say no one is at the Essel campaign HQ? Hmm...Krekorian makes up some bullshit about stalkers and then sends spys over to the Essel office.

By the way, the actual voters are at home. You need to be OUT of the office to speak to them.

Krekorian campaign is in a state of paranoid meltdown. This could be a blow out.

9:49 seems to have been spending a bit too much time at the local medical marijuana dispensary.

There was certainly no meltdown occurring in that room.

No, Joe B. That's not why Davenport unfriended you. This comment from last week is:

Wendy Greuel sent the neighborhood's best friend, field deputy Patricia Davenport, back up to work in Sunland-LvT-Shadow Hills to whip all the rebellious local loudmouths back in line for her vewy bestest friend in da whole wide world, Chris Essel.

Davenport was moved to North Hollywood a couple of years ago because she was too close to some of the locals. Now she's baaaaack! Suddenly Bart Pauls (ex-Foothill Trails NC pres) and Fritzie Bronner and Margerie Beeson (Lakeview Terrace) are gaily waving Chris Essel banners along with Shadow Hills horsie morons like Dale Gibson (current Foothill Trails NC pres).

Davenport and her brother Dale Thrush whipped those bitches into line hard behind the scenes. Promised them lord knows what. More horsies for everyone? Made 'em beg for mercy. Now they go Essel.

Shallman is playing the anti-incumbent card again, but by at the same time linking Essel so closely to the other D'Arcy girl Wendy, Hacopian can use the anti- incumbent same old-same old argument against her.

She's both inexperienced personally and because she's beholden to the taxpayer-mondy special interests, more of the same. An empty vessel for whatever they pour into her.

Personally I just get no sense that she's sincere, that she's running for anything deeper than the power and prestige of continuing to hobnob with the rich and powerful and promise favors like she did at Paramount and her commission jobs.

Today's Daily News reports that Essel has more than $650,00 in IE's. She's raised nearly $500,000. She is unbeatable. Paul could be the best candidate ever and it won't make a difference. You cannot win against this amount of money. Essel takes it all.

The headline for this has nothing to do with the photo. It is just slanderous how bias this site is. Higby must be being paid. A real credible site would have written, Community Support Krekorian but this site takes the opportunity to make an attack.

whoever Divide and Conquer is, they sure know LVT. Bart Paul would do anything for his adored Master and Commander, Dale Thrush. Barts wife tells people her hubby could himself win the City Council seat one day. Is that the lure that Thrush and Davenport use to keep little lapdog Bartie jumping at the table? Fritzie and his wife Margerie are Bartie's neighbors and fawning henchmen. They are all petty people, as vengeful and unethical as they are ambitious. Not a pretty picture.
