Mayoral Candidate Jan Perry's "Q & A" with Los Angeles Magazine
They are both charismatic, but I’d vote for Bradley because his deep, deep commitment to the city was so clear. Bradley fully inhabited the office of the mayor. He had fluid relationships with the city council, but he also enjoyed an enormous amount of credibility with people throughout the city. So he could go out and, on his own word, rally support for initiatives.
It was over the remapping of the city council voting districts. We had a situation where people were drawing up maps outside of a formal process and not letting people know. The fix was already in. Redistricting is a process we go through every ten years, and it reflects how we see ourselves and how we see our city. It’s a precious right, and it needs to be inclusive.
The project that brings the greatest number of jobs to the city as quickly as possible. That’s probably the stadium and the convention center expansion.
