Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles "Unionize" Political Machine for Friday
The city's labor groups were not thrilled with the idea of Yaroslavsky running for mayor. We've (LA Weekly) heard rumors that some unions were planning to deluge him with negative advertising (and personal attacks on rumored "issues") if he had entered the race.
Zev knew this campaign would get "too personal" and LA will continue its slide towards the financial abyss, unless a truly fiscal reformer like Keven James gets elected.
** Former LA Mayor Richard Riordan, who latest "Mini-Riordan Mayoral Protege" dropped out some time back and with Yaroslavsky walking away from the 2013 Mayoral proceedings, is not too positive about the fiscal future of the "Collectivist Sanctuary City-State", within "Greece on the Pacific".
** Hola!! Is anyone home in the CD 7 Dacha of CD 2/7 City Councilman Richard "Zorro Marxist" AlarCON? A neighbor says rarely between 2006-2009 on the witness stand in the AlarCON's retrial.
** Jack Humphreville has the blunt truth behind the latest rate increase proposal at the non-people/constituent/rate payer orientated DWP (but they do political pet projects).
** Who is the person behind the CD 9 City Council Candidate and current fundraising leader LAPD Deputy Chief Terry Hata? That is the subject of the latest Downtown News "Regardie Report"
** Oh My God!! More insider endorsements for the City Controller Wendy "The Valley Greuel's" Campaign for Mayor. Via John Shallman's permission, the Valley Greuel's Campaign has been given a big hug of support by former Mayoral Candidate Bob Hertzberg, a Si Se Puede from UFW's Dolores Huerta and African-American Activist John Mack. (But Brian D'Arcy edits are still paramount).
