San Pedro native and LAPD Senior Lead Officer Joe Buscaino will become the fresh face of Los Angeles Politics after his grass roots juggernault dispatches the Mayor Antonio Villar/Labor Machine on Tuesday.
Current City Councilman Paul Koretz will not have his political identical twin Assemblyman Warren Furutani joining him on the City Council.
Local leadership for years have come in the form of Hahns, whether it was the Pops, son or daughter and their edits had been carried out by loyal operatives, namely McOskers. Many assumed that someday, "a McOsker" would replace now Congresswoman Janice Hahn on the City Council
But come Tuesday evening, it will not be a McOsker that replaces Congresswoman Janice Hahn on the horseshoe, but a "local hero" who never sway from serving with character or leaving the community of his birth, unlike Pat McOsker who rediscover home in time to run for office.
This campaign has shown that community roots and service are paramount in the minds of the local electorate. Thus, when presented with the chance to stand behind a home grown candidate who's "character of service to community" was unmatched by most, they created and sustain a grass roots campaign structure (with the excellent leadership of Campaign Consultant Eric Hogensen's team) that will be study by many political scientists for years to come.
