Councilman Paul Krekorian is off to a flying start in his first full day in office. As reported by OurLA the Second District Councilman proved that he meant what he said during his campaign and introduced legislation with teeth to limit the controversial state law, SB1818, which seeks to tie the hands of local cities when it comes to development.
That being said Krekorian makes it clear he is serious and intends to deliver for the people who elected him. Along with some recent excellent hires for his Council staff it will quickly further endear the charasmatic politician to the City of Los Angeles. We don't know if Paul Krekorian intends to run for Mayor of Los Angeles but with crop of current and former Council Members who plan to run and are generally ridiculed by their constituents - not to mention the crop of gadflies and unknown corporate types who might jump in the race - Krekorian presents a qualified and attractive alternative not only to anything we've already had but to what we could have.
If he keeps it up these next two years, if he wants to be Mayor, he has it.
