“Today is sad day for the City of Los Angeles and the residents of CD 14. I believe the residents deserve better and more ethical representation. My campaign will continue, and I will continue to work hard to bring public accountability, transparency, and fiscal responsibility to the Office of the City Council. We will continue to engage the voters of Council District 14 on the issues that are important to them until they decide the outcome of this election on March 8th." - Statement from the Rudy Martinez for City Council Campaign.
** Huizar's El Sereno property has some "illegal past issues".
** What is it with Councilman Huizar's past issues pertaining to his efforts to bill the taxpayers for personal expenses like attending his Princeton Reunion?
