Its Hump Day before Election Saturday for the Region VIII Neighborhood Councils as Independent Election Administrator Jay Handal immerses himself (subjectively?) into the Rough and Tumble Politics of Northeast LA
Is Region VIII NC Elections Administrator Jay Handal (to left of former Failure Mayor Antonio Villar) helping the cause of inclusive, positive NC Elections or merely padding his political resume by overlooking egregious violations of NC protocols?
** Blogger's Note:
Happy Hump Day to all as the eight neighborhood councils that make up Region VIII
near its "Disempowerment LA-appointed" Election Day this Saturday and making sure that the candidates play by the rules is noted NC Activist Jay Handal.
Handal has been contracted by the City Clerk as the paid Independent Elections Administrator to ensure that proper outreach is conducted and the elections are conducted fairly (meaning in CD 14 that Councilman Huizar's chosen candidates get priority, allegedly). The Westside Eatery Owner
(when not entertaining thoughts of becoming Empower LA's GM one day, allegedly) has had a rude awaking to the state of affairs at a few local NCs, which prompted him to extend the candidate filing deadline by one week and caused him to unleashed his ego-driven ire at those who he perceives as "failing"
in their task of election outreach. But judging from some of the repugnant, campaign vitriol being directed at certain candidates (including the slanderous attack on this blogger noted below), it may be Mr. Handal who is "failing"
to regulate those who are making a mockery of the campaign process. But then, if the purveyors of this gutter campaign tripe are associated with the ruling political representative (Councilman Huizar?), then this is only part of the campaign process (and something to ignore, especially if one is entertaining thoughts of becoming Empower LA's GM someday, allegedly)---Scott Johnson in CD 14
Boyle Heights is no stranger to dirty campaigning
There are some in LA-32 (including Joe Cano) who know no shame when it comes to making slanderous attacks to cover up inappropriate conduct by other candidates.
What use are Candidate Guidelines when they are subjectively enforced by a politically-connected Elections IEA?
