JoeB: I feel sorry for the citizens of CD14 who are forced to choose between these two horrible candidates. Huizar has been a disaster on the PLUM committee, having, among other things,approved Alarcon's Truck Driving School in the middle of an Open Space designated site. Martinez will bring new meaning to the terms "mediocrity" and "incompetence" should he succeed in ousting the incumbent. Either way, it means four more lost years for CD14.
Michael Higby: Rudy Martinez is a dynamic, articulate businessman who represents a stark contrast to the insider Jose Huizar. With Box and Martinez on the Council, along with Krekorian and Parks they could easily lead a new coalition for change in Los Angeles. Martinez is a candidate with big promise while Huizar stands for the failed past. Vote Martinez.
Verdict: One for none, One for Martinez
