Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday

Its never to early to start speculating on those who would like to succeed CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar in 2020 (or earlier).
Former East Los Angeles Community Corp (ELACC) President, now LA County Board of Supervisor Hilda Solis Chief of Staff Maria Cabildo ......, with an Indicted Politico. 
The Power of Political Ambition.
Only in Council District 14, can we start speculating on who will replace the "Dear Charro, Princeton Graduate", even before he is sworn in for his last "Downtown Bought", extended last term.
One person who is already garnering attention is former ELACC President and noted anti-gentrification figure Maria Cabildo, who recently was named Chief of Staff to new LA County Board of Supervisor Hilda Solis.
Cabildo, who resides in Eagle Rock, was an ardent Councilman Huizar supporter during the last election proceedings and with the self-noting Princeton Graduate, now secure in a final term, the career change for Cabildo, is being seen as a political resume enhancer for a possible 2020 CD 14 Campaign.
** Its been awhile since Southwest Voter Education Voter Registration Project's Antonio Gonzalez merited bloggin interest. In the early days of this blog, the voting registration exploits of the husband of ex LA County Board of Supervisor Gloria Molina's Chief of Staff Alma Martinez, were all the rage among the supporters of then Mayor James "Poopy" Hahn. Now in 2015, Gonzalez is reaching back into his voter outreach bag of tricks, by offering a $25,000 Prize to a lucky LAUSD District Five voter, in an attempt to foster higher Election Day turnout ........, for Charter Schools-supported candidate Ref Rodriguez.
** When was the last time we checked in on the cyber astro-turf outpost of the political fanatics known as "Gatto Truthers"? With the "Infant Assemblyman", turned "Slobo Mikey", busy mulling over his pending 2016 State Senate Campaign defeat, by planning a possible 2018 Lt. Governor quest, his devoted cyber trolls found time to opine on the recent CD 4 Elections, which we are so glad to share .........., The big surprise in CD 4 was the showing of Steve Veres who many local Dems including these humble bloggers were pulling for since he got the Democratic Party endorsement with an impressive showing and lots of grassroots support.  Veres underperformed and we are not sure why since he had strong support from Senate Speaker Kevin Deleon; maybe he did not have the right validators in other parts of the district but of course that is just conjecture
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
