Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday

** AM Update: Link here to read our Mayor Sam Exclusive on the John Shallman "Exit Memo" to City Attorney Carmen Trutanich. Plus read Shallman's response, with commentary from a fellow consultant within the Los Angeles Political Community---Scott Johnson.
Zev: What a great game that 2004 Super Bowl was.
Is this the "mother of all scandal"s that prompted LA County Board of Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, to forgo the 2013 Mayoral Contest? But for bloggin curiosity sake, who did Zev allegedly buy the Super Bowl duckets for and why the absence of a paper trail? The "Old Gray Hag on Spring Street" awaits comment
** Our friend Downtown News Editor and reigning "Scribe of Wit" Jon Regardie, mates fingers to keyboard and the result is an early observation on the leading candidates in CD 9, to replace outgoing City Councilwoman Jan Perry. In the interest of space preservation, we have placed the six leading candidates names in a circle, with a spinning wine bottle in the center, to pick the profile of choice ........ and the spinning bottle picks ANA CUBAS!! From Regardie .........

WhoAna Cubas, Jose Huizar's former chief of staff
Pros: Knows City Hall well from her years working for Huizar, and her Salvadoran background could provide a boost in a district with a heavy Latino presence. She’s the leading female contender in a district that elected Perry (currently the only woman on the council) three times and before that put Rita Walters (who has endorsed Cubas) in office. She also appears to be an aggressive fundraiser, and isn’t staying local — she had a Sept. 11 money event in lobbyist heaven, K Street in Washington, D.C. Cons: There are a lot of people who, how shall I put this, like Cubas about as much as they like getting chicken pox. Some voters may also question why she wants to represent a district that, as part of CD 14, she helped tear apart. Her website is next to impossible to find, and her Facebook campaign page had only 130 likes at press time, which isn’t nearly enough votes to win even a low-turnout election. Her bio also said she is still Huizar’s chief of staff. Might want to update that.

That spinning bottle sure knows its candidate of choice.

** We want to extend our best wishes to CD 11 Bill Rosendahl, as he forgoes the chance for a third term as the CD 11 City Councilperson, to fight a battle against cancer. In viewing the recent photos of the Mar Vista resident, you can't help but agree with Rosendahl's decision to not seek a third term.

** If you are devout and desire that the San Fernando Valley's 29th Congressional District, is represented by a leader who shares your values, then this event tomorrow is for you.

San Fernando Valley,
Faith based leaders come together to support and pray for David Hernandez, a candidate for the US House of Representatives.
Pastors, Priests and other Faith Based Community Leaders are uniting in their support of Candidate Hernandez.
Pastors Dudley Rutherford, Senior Pastor at Shepherd of The Hills Church will be joined by Dr. Jim Tolle, Senior Pastor at La Iglesia En El Camino along with Bishop Dr. Juan Carlos Mendez and others to support and pray for David Hernandez.
Pastors from throughout the communities of San Fernando, Sun Valley, Arleta, Pacoima and Sylmar are scheduled to attend.
The 29th Congressional District was created as a “Hispanic” District. Regardless of Party Registration the majority share the same Family/Faith Based Values.
The Prayer Breakfast is seen as a pivotal point in reaching out to the Faith Based Community and providing them with the information to make an informed choice when voting. 

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

I was totally undecided who to support in CD 9. However, that changed when Curren Price announced.

How can Ana Cubas be running in CD 9? She was the most ineffective Chief of Staff in City Hall, best Chief of Staff: Adrin Nazarian.
