"I am not in the pockets of lobbyists and I am not running for City Council.
Mr. Englander is both. So in that regard yes, I am less experienced in screwing over a constituency. Less experienced at lobbying for the very things my constituents oppose. Less experienced at playing politics with the public trust - In that regard I cede that Mitch has more experience than I, and I wear that like a badge of honor.
... many people, including myself, believe Mitch is an atrocious candidate for CD 12."
Mayor Sam, February 12, 2009
In the most solidly Republican district in the City, the only one where Walter Moore bested Antonio Villaraigosa, a true conservative with chops and dough can rise above the bought and paid for RINO Mitch. So the lesson is attention all CD12 comers - raise some money and you can easily take on Mitchell.
And no Phil, not Walter Moore.
