  • Do You Want LA To Follow Detroit? Be Carful Whom You Vote For As The Next Mayor Of Los Angeles – By YJ Draiman 1 comment

    Do you want LA to follow Detroit? Be carful whom you vote for as the next mayor of Los Angeles - By YJ Draiman

    When millions of dollars are spent by Unions to support a specific Mayoral Candidate in LA, it is time to question the candidate's loyalty to the people.

    Our city is in dire financial crisis, our economy is in shambles, businesses and people are leaving the city in droves. Sounds familiar? - This is what is happening in Detroit. Do you want the same to be repeated in Los Angeles?

    The Odor of Favoritism, Monopoly and Union Pressure is raising a Stink in LA politics.

    Candidates courting Union money for their campaign coffers are costing taxpayers jobs and higher rates for city services. Let us address what is rotten in Los Angeles politics when many of the office-seeking candidates raised campaign funds through backroom politics and cronyism rather than looking out for their constituency.

    We want to get the word out that the public trust is being manipulated, and this will be another cause in advancing the city of Los Angeles to Municipal Bankruptcy and total economic collapse.

    Let the people vote for the independent candidate whose allegiance is to the people of Los Angeles and not the special interests.

    It is government by the people for the people.

    Let us all vote and take back our government.

    Author’s reply » In the new century, Los Angeles has begun to fade, and it cannot blame its sorry condition on the recent recession. The unemployment rate is one of the highest among the nation’s largest urban areas. Streets are potholed. Businesses and residents are fleeing. In virtually every category of urban success, from migration of educated workers to growth of airport travel, Los Angeles lags behind not only such fast-growth regions as Dallas, Houston, and Raleigh-Durham, but also historical rivals like New York.
    Perhaps worst of all is the perception, both here and elsewhere, that Los Angeles no longer matters as much as it once did. There was once a great mystique about L.A., but it is gone. Moreover, look at the leadership, and it is gone. No one much cares.”
    Such pessimism, commonly heard these days, is an unwelcome development in a city that once epitomized the promise of twentieth-century America. L.A.’s greatness stemmed from its willingness to be different.
