First time political candidate Joe Buscaino shakes up City Hall with his first place performance last night. After wards, Congresswoman and former CD 15 City Councilwoman Janice Hahn abandon the sunken "U.S.I.S. Pat McOsker" and made an appearance at Buscaino's Campaign Party and stated to the San Pedro native, “You’re going to go all the way,” Buscaino's Campaign Consultant Eric Hogenson deserves major credit for this initial outcome, mixing inclusive new media mediums with old fashion grass roots outreach. But lets not forget that character counts in CD 15 with a home grown candidate such as Joe Buscaino. .
Assemblyman Warren Furutani proved with his second place performance that there are still voters out in CD 15 that will support the status quo and swallow the Mayor Antonio Villar meme. Yet Furutani will need all the labor support that Villar and LA County Labor Federation Leader Maria Elena Durazo can "arm-twist" for him. Plus, photos like above don't help the cause of Furutani when going head to head with the home grown candidate.
Sometime last night after the CD 15 polls closed, the "Union, Special Interest Ship (U.S.I.S.) Pat McOsker"
sank beneath the political waters of CD 15. With $300,000+ of IBEW and SEIU 721 dues money, this political dreadnought should of had more than enough resources to sell the CD 15 electorate on the blue collar, working man virtues of Pat McOsker. But mix a temperamental, non-persona like McOsker with a archaic campaign machine that had no use for new media, then the result should not had been hard to predict..Especially, when your campaign consultant is John Shallman who ..............
resorted to recycling old campaign material, that resulted in his latest sinking of the chosen candidate of the City Hall elites.
