Thank you for taking the time to inform and educate yourself, this election season. It's still pretty early in the campaign cycle, but it IS time to raise awareness, NOW, that there IS an L.A. City Council election in your district on Tuesday, March 8, 2011. If you saw the commercial on TV, that means the election is for YOUR AREA!
First thing you need to know is: Current L.A. City Councilmember Herb Wesson needs to be replaced. (MUST be replaced.) There are many reasons that will unfold on this blog between now and March 8, 2011. But primarily, Herb Wesson is Housing Chair. And Zuma Dogg has a HUGE issue with the L.A. Housing Department and the L.A. Housing POLICY under Chairman Herb Wesson. Secondly, he considers Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to be his, "best friend who just happens to be mayor." Herb Wesson & Antonio Villaraiogsa go WAY BACK to ASSembly days, together -- and Wesson REMAINS Villaraigosa's CLOSEST ally/partner in crime, since Antonio has become mayor. (If Villar needs something TO GET DONE at Council, WESSON is his go to guy.)
MORE COMING...but for now, please get to know Althea Shaw & Austin Dragon. Two grass-root/community candidates running against Mr. Wesson worthy of your consideration. One of these two MUST become the next councilmember of CD 10. PLEASE GET OUT THE WORD IN THE COMMUNITY THAT THERE IS A VERY IMPORTANT ELECTION HAVING DIRECT CONSEQUENCES AND IMPACT ON YOUR DISTRICT MORE THAN ANY OTHER ELECTION IN RECENT HISTORY. And tell them to vote for ANYONE but Herb Wesson. And let them use this campaign season to decide between Austin or Althea.
