Presser from candidate Kevin James:
Angeles, July 27th –Today the Kevin James for Mayor Campaign announces
that it has raised $100,000 from well over 400 donors. This early show of strength
from a true reform candidate demonstrates James’ broad support from across the
community. James’ clear strengths as a former Assistant U.S. Attorney, Co-Chair
of AIDS Project Los Angeles, and ability to call attention to problems in City
Hall and offer real solutions from the radio airwaves continue to serve as
significant assets for his candidacy.
James stated, “I am honored to receive such strong early support from so many
members of the community made up of every-day hard-working Angelenos and small
business owners to former prosecutors and local community leaders. The next
Mayor of Los Angeles must be unafraid to challenge the status quo head-on,
remove the culture of corruption in City Hall and oversee a city government
that provides core services to all Angelenos in an effective and efficient
early fundraising numbers from numerous smaller donations position him as the
outsider candidate whose candidacy is being embraced by the residents of LA. He
is well situated to mount a competitive campaign going forward,” said James’ campaign
strategist John S. Thomas.
