"Who's who of candidates for Los Angeles City Council and LAUSD."
Candidates, you may pull your papers now, ............. and many have as of Friday.
City Council District Two:
Augusto Bustani and Michael McCue are back again in the forlorn hope, better yet, hopeless attempt to unseat the popular Paul Krekorian.
City Council District Four:
Who will the Gatto Truthers target in ensuring that Tom LaBonge gets four more years to perfect the art of buffoonery within the Horseshoe? Stephen Box, Tomas O'Grady or Phil Jennerjahn? BTW, Frank Sheftel just pulled out the "rolling papers" to join this field.
City Council District Six:
James Cordaro makes this race interesting.
City Council District Eight:
Who will the LA Wave Newspaper's Betty Pleasant
support among this crowd to oust Councilman Bernard Parks? Expect Organize Labor to pony up some cash in this race to oust the fiscal-conservative Parks.
City Council District Ten:
Former Mayor Sam Contributor Althea Shaw has pull papers to challenge Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's buddy Councilman Herb Wesson. Austin Dragon merits consideration and attention in this race.
City Council District Twelve:
Mucho-galore great Neighborhood Council advocates here to challenge Mitch Englander's monetary machine. The question here should be whether $400,000+ will keep Mitch from being forced into a runoff in May? Constituents of CD 12 deserve multiple candidates forums with this talented field.
City Council District Fourteen:
Its Rudy vs. Huizzy in terms of early money but don't ignore Tony Butka.
LAUSD District One:
Marquerite LaMotte is UTLA's best friend on the current board. Will be interesting to see who UTLA support in addition to LaMotte in this election cycle.
LAUSD District Three:
Its Tamar Galatzan against Louis Pugliese, The question here is who will have the most monetary resources this time around? Rumor is that UTLA is going to support Pugliese. Will Tamar want to have the Mayor's support in 2011?
LAUSD District Five:
The current group of potential candidates make this race one to watch as the likes of Scott Folsom, Bennett Kayser and Gabriel Buelna, seek to prevent Mayor Antonio Viallaraigosa and CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar's crony Luis Sanchez from becoming LAUSD School Board President Monica Garcia's "mini-me" on the board.
LAUSD District Seven:
Its Jesus Escandon taking on Dr. Richard "Dr. Death"
Vladovic again in 2011. Escandon may be the recipient of some UTLA support in his second attempt at the District Seven Office.
Scott Johnson in CD 14
