MayorSam on the Air!

Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m., I'll be guest co-hosting with Frank Sheftel on LATalkRadio.com on his Frank Talk program.

Our guests include Mel Tillekeratne, Founder and Leader of the Monday Night Mission. Tillekeratne is leading a campaign entitled "Mitch O'Farrell's War On The Poor" protesting an LA City Council motion supported by O'Farrell which looks to ban feeding homeless people in public spaces. Progressive human rights organizations and evangelical Christian groups who provide services to homeless and poverty stricken individuals have formed an unlikely coalition over the matter.

Also joining us will be Steven Vincent and Jay Beeber of the Los Angeles Parking Freedom Initiative, a citizen movement to sponsor a municipal ballot initiative to rectify the abuses of the current parking enforcement policy in Los Angeles.

We'll be discussing other news items of the week and perhaps taking your phone calls at 818.324.0815.

You can listen live on your computer at www.latalkradio.com or on a mobile device via the LATalkRadio iPhone app, the LATalkRadio Android app or the TuneInRadio app (for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry or Amazon Kindle).

Outtakes from the CD Hipster 13 Election Proceedings

The "Other Guy" John Choi in the CD Hipster 13 Campaign files a voter fraud complaint against Mitch O'Farrell as the respective runoff campaigns in CD 1,9 and 13 venture into negative territory ahead of May 21. 
Does this John Choi Hit Piece cross the line of respectable campaigning?
We bring you the latest choreographed campaign scandal from the progressive choice in political consulting S G & A. (the home of the legendary "Parque" Skelton).
As the connected and non-connected players in the campaign to select the replacement for CD 13 City Councilman Eric Garcetti, make their choice between former Garcetti Staffer Mitch O'Farrell and recent CD 13 Transplant (nice way of saying carpetbagger) John Choi, the rhetoric and accusations from the respective camps is treading on illegality.
The Choi Campaign Consultant Mike Shimpock has fallen back on tire tactic of S G & A to manufacture a supposed scandal by accusing the O'Farrell Campaign of the following as reported by the LA Times.

According to a spokeswoman for L.A. County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey, prosecutors are trying to determine whether backers of one candidate illegally filled out mail-in ballots for dozens of voters in the Armenian enclave in East Hollywood. The May 21 election will decide who succeeds Eric Garcetti, who is running for mayor.In a complaint sent to Lacey's office, an attorney for candidate John Choi accused backers of Choi's opponent, Mitch O'Farrell, of "widespread voter fraud and illegal electioneering activities."The complaint alleges that O'Farrell campaign workers filled out voters' ballots for their candidate while telling them they were voting for Sam Kbushyan, a candidate of Armenian descent who ran and lost during the primary election. 

Why would the Choi Campaign want to target Kbushyan and his supporter?


Both campaigns are looking for votes in Little Armenia, in large part because Kbushyan and his supporters registered nearly 3,000 new voters there in the March 5 primary.Kbushyan surprised many in the political establishment when he came in third, placing higher than several other contenders with more money and City Hall support.

Congressman Becerra Endorses Mitch O'Farrell for CD 13

CD 13 City Council Candidate Mitch O'Farrell.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONGRESSMAN XAVIER BECERRA ENDORSES MITCH O’FARRELL FOR LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL, DISTRICT 13
April 11, 2013
Adding to a growing list of local endorsements since winning the March 5 primary, the Mitch O’Farrell campaign announced today that Mitch has received the endorsement of Congressman Xavier Becerra. Congressman Becerra represents Los Angeles and shares many of the same neighborhoods of Council District 13.
“I have known Mitch for over 10 years and appreciate the quality of his leadership and high standard of service. He will make a great Councilmember for the 13th Council District because he cares deeply about the people in it, and knows how to make things happen. Mitch is tireless in his desire to serve,” said Becerra.
“It’s a great honor to receive the endorsement of one of our nation’s leading lawmakers—someone whom I have worked with on numerous projects within the 13th District,” said Mitch O’Farrell.
Mitch also stated, “I have always looked up to Congressman Becerra and his dedication to the democratic values of fairness and equality for all. As a Congressman for 20 years, he has positively impacted the lives of Americans across the U.S. and especially the residents of the 13th City Council District. I look forward to working closely with Congressman Becerra to help improve our neighborhoods, keep up our wonderful momentum, and always seek ways for government to be more efficient and effective for all residents.”

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday


Former Councilperson Bernard Parks and Jan Perry Planning Staffer David Roberts endorsed by LA Times in CD 9 Contest. 
A candidate like David Roberts who know the district and has a plan for economic revival, is worthy of being its next CD 9 City Councilperson.

Great Monday morning to all as we enter the last full week of campaigning before our March 5 Election Day.

How excited are you in casting your vote four the next mayor, a new councilperson, a sales tax increase, some Doomberg-financed LAUSD School Board candidates and lets not forget LACCD Trustees?

According to Valley Daily Moldy Green Sheet (aka Daily News) City Hall Beat Writer Rick Orlov, only ten percent of register voters have returned their absentee ballot. That telling fact should add urgency to the campaigning of the candidates as they seek out voters to get their respective campaigns, in the top two slots, as most contests seem likely to end up in a May Runoff.

** In the contested campaign battlegrounds of Council Districts 9 and 13, the “Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street” (aka LA Times), has endorsed former CD 9 Redistricting Commission Representative David Roberts and City Councilman Eric Garcetti staffer Mitch O’Farrell, respectively. We spent some quality time interviewing Roberts last week at his Campaign Headquarters and will endeavor to share that conversation with our audience this evening.

** The candidates to replace CD 1 City Councilman Ed Reyes will meet tonight in their last debate before Election Day at the Sacred Heart Church Auditorium (Sichel and Griffin Streets) in Lincoln Heights, beginning at 7:00 PM.

** Tune in your radios to Westside LA/ Santa Moscow’s Public Radio Station KCRW at 2:15 PM , as the candidates for City Attorney come together for their last debate. Expect a contentious, vigorous dialog as the sitting City Attorney Carmen Trutanich and main challenger Mike Feuer are sure to rain verbal salvos on run another.

** The Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street is up to its old agenda journalism antics with today’s supposed expose on the past and currents comments by Mayoral Candidate Kevin James. So much for the thought that one evolves his opinions as he or she goes through daily life’s experiences.


Mayor Sam exposes more campaign work via "Stay at Home Wife/ Political Consultant Lani Shallman
John and Lani Shallman sharing quality consulting time at home. 

** Lastly, we have a “Stay at Home Mom/ Political Consultant” Lani Shallman sighting!! Last seen making over $ 1 Million dollars in business, off the likes of a WalMart and Tea Party associated IE PAC in the 46th Assembly District Election. Mrs Shallman is doing IE work in support of WalMart Friend and CD 9 Candidate State Senator Curren Price. Those chums of WalMart sure have each others back.
