A little (3000 gifts) Christmas Toy Giveaway becomes a likely Campaign Coming Out Event for Mayor Eric Garcetti's Chief of Staff Ana Guerrero in CD 14's Boyle Heights.
Honorary Grand Marshall Ana Guerrero waves to the large crowd at Saturday's Teamster's Toy Giveaway in Boyle Heights.
** Blogger's Note:
Before this blogger's gets engross in the political speculation of the morning, let me properly highlight first a Christmas Miracle of Character that continues to grow and give from the heart of former Ramona Gardens Resident Gabriel Acosta,
who's desire to give something back to his neighborhood, has picked up support from the likes of the Teamsters and this year gave 3,000 community children some special love. This year incarnation of Gabriel's Miracle also had some special support from now Mayor Eric Garcetti, who was part of last year's event in Ramona Gardens as a Mayoral Candidate. Due to logistical concerns and seeking to grow its reach of giving, the event was move to First Street's Mariachi Plaza. The support from Mayor Garcetti was clearly evident via an appearance as the Honorary Grand Marshall by his Chief of Staff (and rumored CD 14 City Council Candidate) Ana Guerrero. The prominent role given to Guerrero went far to increase her name recognition (and political speculation) among the mostly CD 14 audience and did not go unnoticed by the couple of CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar staffers who were mingling among the masses. Clearly, Guerrero's appearance was choreographed to showcase Guerrero for a possible CD 14 Campaign and she did not disappoint---Scott Johnson in CD 14.
