Kevin James Hosts Two-Part Candidates Forum on Air - But Minus Chris Essel

KRLA radio talk show host Kevin James will host a candidates forum over two nights featuring all but one of the candidates in the special election to fill the empty seat in Council District 2.

James program, which airs from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. weeknights on KRLA AM 870 AM or on the internet at http://krla870.townhall.com, will feature the candidates with the following schedule:

Wed, Sept 9 - Sanchez, Galatzan, Essavi, Sheftel and Benson
Thu, Sept 10 - McCue, Zuma Dogg, Krekorian and Bisani

The candidate's forum will air from 9:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m each evening.

The only candidate who has refused to debate and has refused to be interviewed by James (all nine others have sat for a half-hour session with the talker to date) is Chris Essel.  Why is Essel afraid of Kevin James? Most likely the drive from Brentwood to KRLA's Glendale studio is too much for Essel.

If you'd like to encourage Candidate Essel to show up for the forum you can call her office at (818) 406-1213.

I don't care for Essel, she's a total blank to me but you know damn well why she's avoiding James: he talks about her like she's Hitler.

Heck, since Phil Jenderjoined thinks Alarcon AND Hitler are on the far left and have a lot in common, James is probably right up the same alley.

Essel wouldn't stand a fair chance and you know it. Of course, she's probably reaping what her manager Shallman sowed for Trutanich: you can't run a campaign saying anyone allied with Antonio is the devil, then running the devil's candidate. And unlike Krekorian the other carpetbagger, she's got no political experience: even if Phil Krack's is what Phil calls Communist.

Listen for Krekorian to blame the Gov. for the budget mess. No surprise there and if he doesn't have the balls to own up to what he helped create in Sacramento how will he have the balls to deal with L.A's problems??

Mayor Sam what is the problem with my using this name? I made some innocuous comment on Phil's line today and he didn't post it.

What is the standard here? Far too many comments are appearing and then getting deleted with no apparent guidelines for this censorship.

I don't know if you're aware of it, but i hope you will address.
