Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday
Who: Ana 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.
