Mayor Sam's Multi-Part Series on City Council President Herb "Mini Amin" Wesson discussing Redistricting 2012 with members of the African-American Clergy.
In Part Two, did City Council President Herb "Mini Amin" Wesson "offer up on the political platter" rookie City Councilman Joe Buscaino's CD 15 seat to the African-American Community in 2013?
Rookie City Councilman Joe Buscaino might want to watch his political backside around City Council President Herb "Mini Amin" Wesson.
Saying a prayer for the political soul of City Council President Herb "Mini Amin" Wesson.
Memo to CD 15 City Councilman Joe Buscaino,
First, we here at Mayor Sam hope you and the family had a great vacation during the just completed summer recess of the City Council. After your refreshing election to replace now Congresswoman Janice Hahn and your subsequent actions in office (we love your integration of new and social media as part of community outreach), you are deserving of some quality time with the family.
As you return today to your duties within the horseshoe, we like to bring your attention to this video above of City Council President Herb Wesson at a recent meeting of African-American clergy in South LA. Now we don't know the status of your current relationship with your CD 10 colleague, but from what we could gather from the comments made, it seems that Council President Wesson suggested that your council seat could be facing a challenge in 2013.
Now lets get real, your recent victory and the coalition that was the foundation for it, is not going to lose anytime soon in CD 15. The only way you can lose your employment as City Councilman in the next three terms, is to stray from the path of ethical political and personal behavior. Judging from your character, that is not going to happen.
But Council President Wesson's comments should cause you to pause and give thought to who are your true political friends. We should note that Council President Wesson was one of your first endorsements from the current council. Now he is the first to offer up your seat in the name of political self-preservation. You don't need those types of political allies. But then that is the nature of the political beast.
In closing, we wish you nothing but the best in your political endeavors in CD 15 and we will always have your back, unlike a certain city council colleague.
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
