Mayor Sam Exclusive: Say Hey!! Is Kevin James Pondering a CD 12 Campaign?
As the sun rises on the latest incarnation of Monday, we focus our cyber attention on speculation regarding a former Talk Show Host, turned paid Political Appointee, with aspirations for Elective Office (allegedly).
In the last couple of weeks, the chatter has increased of a possible Campaign for City Council by former Radio Talk Show Host, now Mayor Eric Garcetti-appointed Board of Public Works President Kevin James ........,, but not in CD 5 (James current home Council District).
According to multiple sources, James is strongly considering establishing Domicile in CD 12, if the current "Councilmember/
The Western San Fernando Valley Council District was a stronghold of support for James during his Third Place Campaign for Mayor in 2013 ..........., and with James Endorsement, was a vital voting enclave that enable, now Mayor Garcetti to beat Wendy Greuel in the 2013 Mayoral Runoff.
But since James populist outsider, reformist Mayoral Campaign of 2013, the perception of many local activists of the now Board of Public Work President, is best exampled by the comments of former LA Daily News Editor and Civic Activist Ron Kaye in a LA Times Missive regarding James
"Kevin has joined the system," said Ron Kaye, former editor of the Los Angeles Daily News. "It's distressing to see someone who knows better buying into the idea that we have to protect the system from reform.".
Yet, the now-supposed City Hall Insider, has been "front and center" in his Board of Public Works Presidential capacity, during the on-going Porter Ranch Gas Leak Crisis, which may pay political dividends (or not) in a speculative CD 12 Campaign.
Its also apparent from a recent telephone poll in the 39th Assembly District, that the political clout of James is also on the mind of a certain political entity, as potential voters were asked to grade the likes of 39th AD Challenger Raul Bocanegra ......., and James (who endorsed Bocanegra's fellow Northeast San Fernando Valley Democratic Machine Member CD 6 City Councilwoman Nury Martinez for Election as pictured below).

COMMUNITY ALERT!! "Son of Fabian (Nunez)" to be Freed from Prison
The son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez whose conviction in the death of a college student was commuted by Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon be a free man. The parents of victim Luis Santos, who was stabbed to death in a 2008 fight on the San Diego State University campus involving Esteban Núñez and others, said this week that they have been notified of his impending release.The pair spoke Thursday at a victim’s rights rally in the state capital where they told CBS Sacramento it would happen within a week. Nunez pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for his part in the brawl and was sentenced in 2010 to 16 years in prison. But the following year, then-Governor Schwarzenegger commuted the sentence to just seven years saying that Nunez, whose father was a political ally, had no prior criminal record and that the sentence was excessive. When asked if his ruling had anything to do with his relationship with Núñez , Schwarzenegger was later quoted as saying “Well, hello! I mean, of course you help a friend.”
