    The most vibrant city with a great future with our residents help.

    "Let us take back our city and make it Los Angeles governed by the people for the people"

    Code of Conductfor public officials

    You have a duty to make decisions in the public interest. You must not act in order to gain financial or other benefits for yourself, your family, friends or business interests. This means making decisions because they benefit the public, not because they benefit the decision maker.
    You should make decisions on merit and in accordance with your statutory obligations when carrying out public business. This includes the making of appointments, awarding of contracts or recommending individuals for rewards or benefits. This means fairness to all;
    impartial assessment; merit selection in recruitment and in purchase and sale of Council's resources; considering only relevant matters.
    You are accountable to the public for your decisions and actions and should consider issues on their merits, taking into account the views of others. This means recording reasons for decisions; submitting to scrutiny; keeping proper records; establishing audit trails.
    You have a duty to be as open as possible about your decisions and actions, giving reasons for decisions and restricting information only when the wider public interest clearly demands.
    This means recording, giving and revealing reasons for decisions; revealing other avenues available to the client or business; when authorized, offering all information; communicating clearly.
    You have a duty to act honestly. You must declare any private interests relating to your public duties and take steps to resolve any conflicts arising in such a way that protects the public interest. This means obeying the law; following the letter and spirit of policies and procedures; observing this Code; fully disclosing actual or potential conflict of interests and exercising any conferred power strictly for the purpose for which the power was conferred.
    You must treat others with respect at all times. This means not using derogatory terms towards others, observing the rights of other people, treating people with courtesy and recognizing the different roles others play in local government decision making.

    Author’s reply » Dear Voter,


    On this Independence Day, we've got a fresh opportunity to declare America's independence from big money control of our elections.


    Encouraged by the success in Montana, We are launching an Amend 2012 campaign in California yesterday to give voters a voice against all the big money madness this November. We've got less than five weeks to gather 150,290 valid voter signatures so that Californians can declare their support on election day for a constitutional amendment overturning the Supreme Court's disastrous decision in Citizens United.


    This is a huge undertaking. Can you help us make it happen by donating today?


    There's a lot to do in a short amount of time! We are printing petitions, contracting for canvass crews to fan out across the state, and setting up a volunteer operation. We have to pull together as much funds as possible from allies and donors for this ambitious drive, but need to raise substantial more funds to get to the finish line. We could also use volunteers to help us in this crucial task and restore our Democracy.


    We know that Californians, like other Americans, are fed up with attempts by millionaires and big corporations to buy our elections; now we have to show them they can fight back. Our Western Region rebellion is spreading, and with California in the mix – a major State in the presidential election – we can send a loud message to Washington, DC that it's time to make elections of, by and for the people, not of, bought and paid for by special interests. We must hold our elected officials accountable to the people.


    Help voters raise the cry for independence from big money in politics. Give today to spread this national uprising to take back our democracy!


    "Let us take back our city and make it Los Angeles governed by the people for the people"


    So as you enjoy a day with family and friends, picnics and fireworks, please take a moment to support our 21st century declaration of independence – from big money.


    Thanks for all you do,


    YJ Draiman
    and the rest of the team at Government by the people

    It is my understanding that based on our constitution; People "shall have the right to resist any person or persons seeking to abolish their constitutional rights, should no other remedy be possible".


    All the governments' authority emanates from the people. The people are not satisfied with the rather poor performance of our government. It is time to elect a new slate of candidates, whose main concern are the people.


    A nation's corruptive and corrosive power could only exist by the nation's apathy. Therefore as people of a democratic country, we must rise above this apathy and vote for the right people in public office. We should vote for people who care about the everyday working class, who want what is best for the people.


    My main interest is not making money, but building an organization. I am an efficiency expert and a troubleshooter. My goal is to bring Los Angeles back to economic prosperity.


    Instinct is no guide to political conduct. Effective leadership is always forced - whatever its motives - to represent itself as a carrier of ideas embodying purposes. All truly great achievements in history resulted from the actualization of principals, not from the clever evaluation of political condition. A good and effective leader must care about the people and address their needs.


    For a man to be elected as mayor of Los Angeles, he must have a strong will and the guts to prevail. To become mayor of the people you have to overcome the handicap of the political machine and special interests groups. You must motivate the people to vote for you in order for them to survive in these hard economic times.


    If you want to see a transformation of attitudes towards the people of Los Angeles, with the goal to improve economic conditions and a strong and effective government, I urge you to vote for me.


    Your humble servant


    YJ Draiman
