This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.
Its ....., LA MUNICIPAL ELECTION DAY 2017!! Zzzzzzz ......
Its Municipal Election Day 2017 as the City Hall Establishment (with Propaganda help from the LA Times) seeks to beat back needed Development/Planning Reform via "YES ON MEASURE S", with a certain "Second Term-seeking MIA Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee" hoping for a resounding Re-election Victory. ** Plus some Election endorsements (or not) on specific Races.
A corrupting configuration threatens to engulf City Hall.
Still missing ....... along with current Crime Stats.
** Blogger's Notes: Its a BEAUTIFUL morning to start LA Municipal Election Day 2017 ....., and well, does ANYONE care? In areas such as CD-9, CD-5, CD-7 ......, and especially CD-1, the rebellion against the 200 Spring Street Establishment, could likely continue on to a replay in May. Less likely, would be a Mayoral Campaign Runoff where Second Term-seeking Mayor Eric Gar-SOFT-ee (or was it a 2009 Tony Villar Replay?), was MIA in defending his RECORD (or lack of) in any of the Candidate Debates/Forums. BUT, by far the MOST important item on today's Ballot is Measure S, which the City Hall Establishment (and LA Times), has spent MEGA-money in defeating. As always, we implore EVERYONE register to vote (not by Larry "Nativo" Lopez) ......, to exercise their RIGHT to do so----Scott Johnson.
** Endorsements (or NAUGHT):
Mayor: No Gar-SOFT-ee Second Term for someone likely not to focus on completing his last Term (and not reveal current CRIME STATS). Instead, choose from Mitchell Schwartz, David Hernandez, Eric Previn and even Zuma Dogg.
City Attorney: No Endorsement for the Law Enforcement-endangering, Co-author of AB-109 Mike Feuer.
City Controller: No Endorsement for Ron Galperin, who NEVER audited the CD-14 Central Los Angeles Refuge Transfer Station (CLARTS) Huizar Mistress whoops, Amenities Fund ........, and what about those DWP/IBEW Joint Non-Profit Accounts?
