Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

Mayoral Candidate City Councilwoman Jan Perry gets endorsement of the Downtown News
What bounce the Downtown News endorsement gives the Perry Campaign, will play out in the days ahead.

While the recent focus of the 2013 Mayoral Contest being fixated on “bogus audit savings”, “Foxes” and one candidate’s “questionable ethnic ties“, Jan Perry has largely escape the limelight of a critical, discerning media.
But her steady, forward looking campaign approach has been rewarded with the endorsement of the Downtown News who lauds Perry’s leadership in stewarding  multiple projects that has revitalize her former Downtown district.

Angelenos would make a good choice if they choose Greuel or Garcetti. Each cares deeply about the city and its people. Each boasts an impressive resume and a long list of accomplishments.However, we think there is a better choice: Los Angeles Downtown News firmly endorses Jan Perry for mayor. She has shown significant skill in creative problem solving, which is the most important trait a leader has to possess, as evidenced by her key role in the last decade in the phenomenal emergence of Downtown Los Angeles as a place to live, work and spend free time. At the same time, she has found ways with her leadership skills to aid and improve Skid Row and South Los Angeles.One of our favorite traits about Perry is her personal and professional courage in her nearly 20 years as either a council aide or as a councilmember herself. Almost immediately after her first election, she took a one-person, fact-finding walk down Skid Row. Multiple groups do so now, but she was the first politician to talk seriously to people she met there about their lives and their needs, and to follow up. She made Skid Row more than a Thanksgiving photo opp.

What bounce this endorsement plays in selling Perry to the LA electorate will become pronounce on Election Day.

** The Downtown News Editor and reigning “Scribe of Wit” Jon Regardie, does a sit down with CD 1 City Council Candidate and current City Councilman Ed Reyes Chief of Staff Jose Gardea. The  key for Gardea in his quest to replace Reyes, is establishing a political persona, separate from that of the current office holder.
** Mayoral candidate Emanuel Pleitez had some choice comments in regard to The Villar Greuel’s Boyle Heights Campaign Office opening which merits an exclusive post in coverage.
** The Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street has a “journalistic no duh moment” in today’s print edition, that notes The Villar Greuel’s outreach advantage via her recent T.V. ad buy.

I had an opportunity to hear Jan Perry at the recent LA Neighborhood Council Coalition (LANCC) meeting, and I , for one, was very impressed by what I heard. Jan Perry has got it going on, more so than Eric Garcetti or Wendy Greuel. Jan Perry really knows what's going on, and has a plan for leading the city of Los Angeles. I encourage the citizens of Los Angeles to vote for Jan Perry for Mayor of Los Angeles.
