Will Mayor Villar's endorsement hurt Assemblyman Furutani's chances in CD 15?

The "anti-endorsement" in the CD 15 Special Election?
Quick political history lesson. 
In 2007, a well respected CD 15 community leader and Los Angeles Unified School District Principal stood alone against the Mayor Antonio Villar's Education Machine, in their pursuit of taking over the LAUSD School Board. The machine anointed well-known School Administrator Richard "Dr. Death" Vladovic as their school board candidate in District 7 which encompass the same area as CD 15 (along with cities like Carson and Gardena). But with the fraction of the monetary support of the Villar Machine, San Pedro resident Neil Kleiner came within 6% of pulling the upset, losing 53-47% in the District 7 race.
The one consistent theme of Kleiner's bid for the LAUSD School Board, was his opposition to Mayor Villar's AB 1381 unconstitutional bid to gain oversight of LAUSD. Further the district political demographics were such (and still are) conducive for someone to run against the dubious background of Mayor Villar or allies (think Hahn Family stronghold).
Four years later, who is Neil Kleiner supporting to replace now Congresswoman Janice Hahn as CD 15 City Councilperson? The same person as hundreds of his neighbors in CD 15 who trust someone they have known for decades and unlike Kleiner, has the monetary resources to beat back the Villar Machine.
Your thoughts..............
