Two well-known politicos enjoying some lunch time King Tacos.
Great TGIF Lunch Hour to all as we near the end of another work week and cruise into the weekend. Here are some tasty lunch time bloggin political missives to ward away the post noontime political brain drain.
CD 9 City Council Candidate David Roberts
Downtown News Editor and Scribe of Wit Jon Regardie has the exclusive on the latest candidate seeking to replace City Councilwoman Jan Perry. David Roberts who was Councilwoman Pery's appointee to the 2012 City Redistricting Commission, has taken out papers to join the likes of Assemblyman Mike Davis, former CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar Chief of Staff Ana Cubas and LAPD Deputy Chief Terry Hata in seeking to replace the termed out, now Mayoral Candidate Perry.
In remarks to Regardie, Roberts stated ........
“I have a passion and a connection to South Los Angeles that goes back 20 years,” Roberts said. “I know I can capitalize on the progress made in the last 10 to 12 years by Jan Perry to bring more revitalization and job opportunities and a renewed sense of neighborhood pride and identification.”
Roberts, who's work to protect the Downtown sections of CD 9, fell victim to behind close doors dealings, can be seen in this video of a Redistricting Commission hearing in Koreatown.
** OTHER BRIEFS:
** Most of the establishment media was fixated on last night's Art Walk theatrics between Occupy LA protesters and LAPD
which resulted in twenty arrests and injuries to four LAPD officers. While this labor/liberal dominated City Council continues to tolerate this "messy exercise in democracy", law-abiding neighborhood councils (for most part) are being force to use $5,000 of their yearly allocation to pay for their own elections. Can you say misplace priorities?
We will have more Southwest Museum news on Monday.
Your thoughts ..............
