Mayor Sam Candidate Endorsements: Anyone But Cardenas for CD6

This is the next in a series of posts where JoeB and I will give our endorsements for candidates for LA City Council and School Board. Where there is agreement we will give the official MayorSam endorsement to the candidate. Next up is CD6. For each post we will give both Joe's endorsement and mine along with our comments. The choices in CD6 are:

JoeB: Anyone But Cardenas

Michael Higby: Tony Cardenas, who sometimes exhibit some budget restraint, has more often than not been on the shady side of the equation and not part of the solution when it comes to City government. His opponents though each are concerning. Jamie Cordaro is a good man and old friend who I've supported before. But I believe this is his fourth or fifth time running for elected office and if it hasn't happened yet, it may be time to try something else. David Barron sounds like another bureaucrat. Rich Goodman is young but he is of the Gen Y entrepreneur set that is doing so much in America these days. It might be good to have that voice at the Council table. Vote for Goodman.

Verdict: 1 for Anyone But Cardenas, 1 for Goodman

Cardenas is just as corrupt as the rest of them on council. He gives his sister city contracts, he named a rec center for his parents and didn't get community input, he supports gangsters, he acts like a thug in council and demeans people sitting at the table, has an anger management issue especially with women. Cardenas is nothing more then the rest of the Latinos on council and that is Mexican MAfia thugs in suits. GET RID OF THEM

Figures Joe and Higby only support the white candidates.

CD 6 is a Latino seat. White people shouldn't even run. They won't win. We don't white politicians in our community. They can go run in Sherman Oaks or Beverly Hills or Los Feliz where they can feel comfortable hating Mexicans.

The Truth about Cardenas. He's bad news. He does hide it better, but this has been floating around. http://www.mediafire.com/?s7gi75iyzuibp1x

Wishful thinking here, Higby. Tony tends his row; fixes his potholes. he knows how to get and keep elected.

Tony wins again.

Why does no one ever ask Tony Cardenas why his niece, Angelica Loa Perez kept her $80,000 a year job over at Cultrual Affairs when more senior people were laid off? Or why her charity, Tia Chuchas Centro Cultural has gotten over 250,000 in grants from Cultural Affairs, a real conflict of interest and VERY ILLEGAL according to the granting bylaws of the city? If you look @ the Tia Chucha's Webpage under the non profit heading, you can see where she is listed as on the board...and that Cazrdenas has funneled money there also! Come on, Mayor Sam! Ask the tough questions! Do a little digging and see how CD 6 money is being spent!

Mayor Sam:
Look into Tony Cardenas's Niece, Angelica Loa Perez. She kept her $80,000 job @ the LA Department of Cultural Affairs when more senior people were laid off...due to pressure from Cardenas himself! Also, her charity, Tia Chuchas Centro Cultural has gotten over $250,000 in Grants from Cultural Affairs, VERY ILLEGAL! She is on the board, which is a no-no! VERY shady!Look @ the Tia Chuchas webpage under "non profit" for proof...she is listed as a founding member on the board....WAY against DCA guidelines. Cardenas gives his niece's "charity" money also from CD 6...so look into it! VERY shady!

Too bad LA Times took so long to endorse Goodman. This kid will do more for the community than the corrupt Cardenas.
