The Cracks in the Political Foundation of now CD 1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo;s Community Coalition, continue to widen as 2013 CD 1 Third Place Candidate (and Cedillo's Runoff Supporter) Jesse Rojas, pulls 2017 Campaign Papers to challenge the Second Term-seeking Officeholder.
One Bill Gil's recent proclivities for reneging on promises has earned him the new moniker "Broken Deal Cedillo".

** Blogger's Note: In an ideal Political World, the challenge to a City Council Incumbent, especially when the Officeholder is the renowned/infamous Gil "One Bill" Cedillo, would be Front Page-garnering Breaking News.
But in a 21st Century "Ciudad de Los Angeles", the Act of Pulling 2017 Campaign Papers by now Councilman Cedillo former supporter Jesse Rojas, becomes a "bloggin HOT Monday Topic in chronicling a growing CD 1 Backlash against the career politico, now known as "Broken Deal Cedillo".
We bloggin rewind to a "2013 Better Yesterday", when a diverse community coalition help the then nationally-recognized "One Bill (Driver Licenses for Illegals) Gil" narrowly defeat challenger, former CD 1 City Councilman Ed Reyes Chief of Staff Jose Gardea by a triple-digit margin.
A key endorsement in the Cedillo Victory over Gardea, was provided by Third Place Candidate Jesse Rojas, who's block of support surely played an important part in Cedillo succeeding the much-disliked Reyes.
Yet, three years-removed from endorsing the current Officeholder, Rojas pending challenge is another example of a growing backlash by former 2013 supporters from all neighborhoods within CD 1.
Flying Pigeon Bicycle Shop Owner Josef Bray-Ali, who has been a front person espousing opposition to Councilman Cedillo's Figueroa Transit Plan and Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council President Monica Alcarez, a vocal critic of Cedillo (and BIG supporter of CD 14 Councilman Huizar) are other prominent names mentioned as potential 2017 Candidates.
