"Will the infant Assemblyman make it to political puberty?"
"Mikey may need a stiff drink after these election results, kinda like the night before the Burbank Veteran's Day observance?"
Judging from the recent musings of a certain stay at home blogger,
Assemblyman Mike Gatto was quickly growing into the role of potential democratic power-broker in Sacramento. But there are pratfalls galore, when accepting the spin-crafted political personas of Parke Skelton as reality. After all, we are well-verse in the follies of one Tony Villar, turned Fail Mayor Antonio, soon to be again, Villar.
Thus, with Assemblyman Mike Gatto's ambitious political agenda catching the attention of those who observe from home. One would of expected Assemblyman Mike Gatto's slate in this weekend's 43 Assembly District Democratic Delegate Elections, to barrel their way (with Kevin H. leading the way?) to victory. But a funny thing happen ...........
According to reliable sources, Assemblyman Gatto's slate lost eight out of the twelve delegates slots, which according to one person, is "unprecedented for a sitting assembly person". It seems that despite all the phone calls from Assemblyman Gatto and his political confidant Stacey Brenner, he could only get four of his slate elected. One source stated to me that Gatto was frantic to gain the support of as many elected delegates as possible, with the looming redrawing of assembly district boundaries. Could this dismal show of support from his own 43rd District democrats become a precursor of a brutal democratic battle in a newly-drawn district in 2012?
But as Gatto contemplates his political future, he can rely on political friends such as Chahe Keuroghelian who was seen yakking it up with the Gatto supporters, especially Glendale Democrat Laurie Collins.
So not all is lost for the infant Assemblyman Mike Gatto with friends like Chahe still willing to stand by him.
