** Blogger's Note: A good crowd turned out last Sunday for the combination Campaign Kickoff/Office Opening for Homegrown 51st Assembly District Candidate Luis Lopez in Lincoln Heights. Prominent supporters in attendance included former Assemblywoman/City Councilwoman Jackie Goldberg, CD 5 City Councilman Paul Koretz, Congresswoman Judy Chu and fellow former candidate Arturo Chavez. Chavez gave a passionate speech, outing the establishment for insulting voters by picking an outsider (via Riverside) to run in the district.---Scott Johnson.
