** Tuesday afternoon update as of 5:00 PM, Jose Huizar is reporting $203,274, Rudy Martinez reports $202,620.
Mayor Sam has learned that CD 14 City Council Candidate Rudy Martinez will report $200,000+, for his campaign to unseat current City Councilman Jose Huizar, in the March 2011 Elections.
Martinez who has been aggressive in the early campaigning within CD 14, will parley a mix of self-financing and contributions, to reach the $200,000 mark for the October 12, 2010 Filing Period.
The fact that Martinez is evolving into a strong challenger for the CD 14 Council Seat, may be why that Councilman Huizar, is attempting to restrict Martinez from appearing in community events, that get funding from his various monetary resources.
Community sources with ties to the Eagle Rock Veteran's Day Parade, report that Councilman Huizar is attempting to deny Martinez, a veteran, a spot in the parade. Back in July, Martinez was denied a spot in the El Sereno "Fourth of July Parade". This was despite the fact that the A & E Cable Channel that produces his "Flip this House Show" would of donated $500 toward the parade expenses and that Martinez would not identify himself as a candidate for CD 14.
On the subject of candidates, long time community activist and Glassell Park Neighborhood Councilmember Tony Butka, has announced that he will become the fourth candidate in the CD 14 contest. we plan on bring you more on Butka's Campaign, in the near future.
