Enough is Enough!!
Lets give credit to the Ya Basta Community Organization for encapsulating in three words, what should be the major theme of the upcoming 2013 Mayoral Election.
The declared candidates and those doing their best "Hamlet impersonation" (Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and Developer Rick Caruso), should be on notice that many citizen groups across the city, are tire of the corruption and crony capitalism that will define the "Reign of Mayor Antonio Villar". Thus, are seeking a reformer that will return ethical government to 200 N. Spring Street.
For insider candidates such as Controller Wendy Greuel and City Councilman Eric Garcetti, your failure to get out and down to the base of the grass roots, may engender a voter backlash, based upon your well-documented contributions to the current state of affairs at City Hall.
In the case of "insider, outsider tweener" City Councilwoman Jan Perry, her chances to grow her support base, rests on the ability to be more candid about her past endeavors and avoid the perception of playing both sides on respective issues.
Whether the group is Latino, Korean, Croatian, Armenian or Anglo, James message of reform and riding City Hall of corruption, is resonating in all corners of the city. Thus, the multiple ethnic groups and organizations that have been excluded or exploited, while a exclusive few benefit from the "Reign of Mayor Villar's Crony Capitalistic" excesses, as exampled by IBEW's Brian D'Arcy, Ari Swiller and the museum garage of Eli Broad, are finding their common ethical "Basta" and joining James in saying "Enough is Enough!".
