President Day Holiday Evening Briefs on the Campaign Scene

Its apparent that State Senate President Pro Tem "Kevin de Leon the First Staffer and current CD 4 City Council Candidate (via the San Fernando City Council and LACCD) Steve Veres, is becoming the "Campaign Bad Boy", as he and "Private Citizen/Volunteer Campaign Consultant" John Shallman play loose with Campaign Financing Rules.
Honest!! John Shallman was working for free (prompting many, including myself to LMAO!!). Photo via the LA Times.
** Blogger's Note: To the point, WTF are CD 4 City Council Candidate Steve Veres and "Private Citizen/ Volunteer Political Consultant" John Shallman trying to pull with their thinly-veiled attempt to coordinate Campaign and IE Committees (allegedly)? This type of reckless campaign behavior, recently seen in the now litigious 2013 City Attorney Campaign by now City Attorney Mike Feuer and "Private Citizen/Discount Rate Campaign Consultant" John Shallman, can only do hurt to one's political aspiration of being elected to his second City Council. We can speculate that the new found audacity by the "Private Citizen/Volunteer Campaign Consultant" to manipulate Campaign Finance Rules, is driven by a need to create new revenue streams for Shallman Communications (and wife's Lani's West Coast Public Affairs), to offset growing interest on any tax liens ......, but again (with regards to a Mr. Andrew Cowan), we are ONLY speculating---Scott Johnson. 
** BTW, to Veres for City Council Campaign Spokeshole Brian Van Riper, were the percentage (and total) of contributions from those "associated with the Central Basin Water District", higher than the number originating from within CD 4? Graph via the LA Times.
CD 10 City Council Candidate Grace Yoo had some great company on the Campaign Trail in Leimert Park, with CD 8 City Councilman Bernard Parks (with family) joining her for a "Meet & Greet BBQ".
We bring you this Special Message from 39th AD Assemblywoman Patty Lopez (via the Facebook Page of the Cindy Montanez for City Council Campaign).
CD 6 City Council Candidate Cindy Montanez with Assemblywoman Patty Lopez.
I am endorsing Cindy Montanez for LA City Council for the following reasons:
We will share many communities in our districts
We both want to improve and protect the integrity of our communities.
We want to improve the delivery of public services.
We want to establish accountability and a sensible spending of our tax dollars....

We are not afraid of being transparent even when is not always in our favor
There is no special interest behind her campaign (like mine)
She is knowledgeable, intelligent and has the energy, experience and most important the willingness to help establish the much needed collaborative effort between my office and the City.
I will ask my supporters and friends to please join me in supporting Cindy Montañez for City Council.

-Assemblymember Patty Lopez-

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

Seriously, what's the City of San Fernando connection here? Both Veres and Nury served on the San Fernando Council, and now they are seeking election and re-election to LA? Is there some bizarre financial deal? Come to think of it, Montanez also was on the San Fernando Council, right?

No coincidence that Nury and Veres were busted for sending out illegal mailers. Montanez was also in San Fernando, but she was there before them and it's obvious that Nury and her half a million $$ special interests funded campaign is on one side while Cindy Montanez, Patty Lopez and their $10,000 campaigns are with the community.

Take down the Valley Machine!
