I watched the mayoral debate for Los Angeles yesterday evening, and I really like Garcetti. Garcetti wants to make Los Angeles like Rome, Italy. Garcetti wants nice piazzas in every neighborhood where people can gather, and parks, and nice public landscaping, and fountains and stuff, and he wants there to be shops and churches and stuff in every neighborhood so that everything is right there so that you can walk places instead of driving, and he wants good public transportation, and he wants to help all of the homeless people, and he wants to pave the streets and fill in all of the pot-holes, and he wants to help create more jobs including more entertainment industry jobs, and he wants Los Angeles to have a football team, etc, etc, etc. Garcetti wants to do a lot of the same stuff that I would do myself if I was mayor of Los Angeles. I would vote for Garcetti.

Salute,

Tony V.

The more that I listen to Garcetti talk, and the more I learn about him, the better he sounds for mayor of Los Angeles.

On the issue of being strong in order to do good...

All Christian churches should have gyms so that all Christians can work out and so that all Christians can be strong and healthy, so that we can all be warriors for Christ. Boxing and kick boxing and martial arts and MMA training would be good too.

Just a thought...


Salute,

The CCC needs to be brought back...

There needs to be a way that people who are homeless and hungry can work in order to get food and shelter, and a small check for cigarettes and clothes, or whatever. People can plant trees in our forests, etc, etc, etc, and in the cities people can paint over graffiti, they can do public landscaping, they can pick up trash, they can wash sidewalks, they can replace broken sidewalks, they can fill pot-holes in the streets, they can re-pave the streets, they can clean the parks, etc, etc, etc.

The worst thing in the world is being homeless and hungry, and with the bad economy there are a lot of people who are homeless and hungry, there needs to be places where they can go work in exchange for food and shelter.

Salute,

The best way to re-pave streets is with cobblestones, there are cobblestone streets in Rome which are over two thousand years old.

I am not naive.

Garcetti must win.

And here is another idea, people can be forced to earn their welfare checks as well, there is plenty of work that can be done, and the public will benefit, everyone wins. Just imagine if everyone who is on welfare in Los Angeles was forced to help beautify Los Angeles, etc, etc, etc, everyone would benefit.

You are a fool to believe a career politician!

Wendy Gruel could use some help for a change after Antonio Villaraigosa and James Hahn screwed it up big time!

Garcetti has 10-point lead over Greuel, poll finds

By Michael Finnegan
April 21, 2013, 8:22 a.m.

A month before the May 21 Los Angeles mayoral runoff election, likely voters favor Eric Garcetti over Wendy Greuel by 50% to 40%, according to a new USC Price/Los Angeles Times poll.

The survey also found no sign of success for Greuel's effort to gain an edge among women by highlighting her potential to make history as the city's first female mayor. Female poll respondents said they preferred Garcetti by a margin of 50% to 41%.

Latinos and younger respondents backed Garcetti by still wider margins. The city councilman from Silver Lake appears to have strengthened his standing in the central city and Eastside neighborhoods that he won decisively in the March primary. He has also appears to have built a solid lead on the Westside -- a key target of Greuel's.

Perhaps most worrisome for Greuel, the city controller, is her apparent failure so far to establish a base in the Valley, where the two are effectively tied in the poll.

Greuel, who lives in Studio City, had hoped that audits by her office that found wasteful spending of taxpayer money would appeal to the Valley's Republicans, often a pivotal vote in L.A. elections.

Instead, Garcetti has emerged with a lopsided poll lead among conservatives citywide, picking up support from many of those who voted in the primary for Republican radio personality Kevin James, now a Garcetti backer.

Greuel's apparent tepid support in the Valley, which she represented on the City Council from 2002 to 2009, poses a major challenge for her in the closing weeks of the race. Though Democrats dominate the Valley, many of the city's Republicans live on its western and northern ends.

The telephone survey of 500 likely voters, taken Monday through Wednesday, had a margin of sampling error of 4.4 percentage points in either direction, with wider margins for subgroups.

For Garcetti, the poll offered an abundance of good signs. Likely voters gave him higher marks than Greuel on how he would handle traffic, mass transit, jobs, crime and public safety, always areas of concern for city voters.

Kevin James sold out by endorsing Eric Garcetti! What a bastard and a traitor as well!
