Outtakes from CD 14 Special Report: Photos and Comments from Glassell Park Candidate Forum
"Councilman Huizar's "Staff Pack". Body language is indicative of how the candidate forum went for their boss". One Eagle Rock staffer in this picture was observed submitting questions to the moderator. Question, how many staffers are in this photo?
City Council Candidate Rudy Martinez showed marked improvement from his initial foray into the world of political forums/debates. Audience warmed to the responses of Martinez as the forum evolved. Martinez was asked once about the badge issue (planted by a Huizar staffer?) and used the question to expouse his steadfast support for LAPD. The Martinez Campaign would be advised to take advantage of their candidate's strong performance last evening and ask Councilman Huizar to answer for his lack of knowledge of the current CRA Controversy. Further, elaborate on how a councilman transfers $1 million dollars for salaries, from a community amenities fund, but yet cites that he and his staff have taken a 10% cut in pay. The political math here is questionable and merits further investigating.
