Lonely at the Top?

HuggyDriving around Sherman Oaks, we notice that Bob Hertzberg's home is the only one in his neighborhood displaying Hertzberg yard signs. To be clear, there are no other yard signs for any other candidates.

Sounds like Huggy needs to get to work. Get Szabo and Hay to get off their asses writing on the Hertzablog and get out there with a pick up truck. A little old fashioned campaigning doesn't hurt.

Then again, does Tony Villar even know now to set up a yard sign?

If Villaraigosa's people have even printed any signs yet (they are 'cruising' after all) you can bet they're all over his tiny posh cloud-covered neighborhood high above CD14; (but for some reason, his campaign consultants aren't flying the colors at home). Wonder what THAT means!

That probably means the people where they live can't vote for L.A. mayor.

I have a sense Mayor Sam is a Garcetti aide? Why? Because your poll doesn't include Garcetti who is acadmecially accomplished (yes, I know he has a PhD) but lacks any sort of street smarts.

No, Mayor Sam is too conservative to work for Garcetti ;)

Joking aside, Garcetti has more street smarts than most. At least he returns calls and meets directly with his constituents, unlike Tom "Mr. Pothole" LaBonge, my councilmember. Twice Garcetti and his office has been able to get-it-done. I'm voting LaBonge for dumbest.

Hey, download your own yardsign for Parks, here "Bernard Parks for Mayor" - (and just hope people don't end up thinking Bernard is Hahn's chauffer's first name).

Well as we all know, the guy with the most lawn signs usually wins.

Why? There's only five of us, and we're all on duty at the sleazy bars tonight. We can't possibly make any difference, at all.

Oh crap - how the hell did we forget Garcetti?

It's understandable since Garcetti is bland and charisma challenged just like soon-to-be former mayor Hahn.

The number of lawnsigns don't indicate who will win, but they indicate how energized the base is -- contrast this to two years ago, when Villaraigosa signs (and those for his opponents) were on every third lawn in the district. Beauty pageant polls come and go, but if the "faithful" don't care enough to declare themselves, many won't show up to vote, or even bother to fill out the mail-in.

I saw Parks lawn signs on the eastside. More than Antonio signs. Man, this means that Parks people are more energized for him on the eastside than Antonio's people. I adhere to the notion that: Lawn Sign Signs win campaigns.

The only lawn sign I have seen that someone actually put in their lawn was a Hertzberg sign on NB Highland just south of Melrose.

There are a bunch of "Councilman Parks for Mayor" signs (illegally ?) stuck in fences of vacant lots along Wilshire...
