Are Hoodwinked Angelenos electing failed leaders in 2013?

Who is qualified to be the next mayor of Los Angeles 2013? - I submit: None of the three current elected officials!

Any of the current three elected officials at LA City Hall who are running, who have been in LA City Hall for the past 12 years, do not qualify to be the Mayor of LA. Their past poor performance, their contribution to the current state of affairs is reprehensible. Current elected official do not deserve to be reelected again for any position in LA City Hall and especially to the position of Mayor in the city of Los Angeles. It would be a travesty if they win the election.

I hope and trust that the people of LA are not gullible as the current three mayoral candidates who are elected officials presume. They are counting on fooling the people again. How many times us Angelenos need to be beaten over the head to declare enough is enough; the corruptions and special favors are over, we are exercising our voting power and are taking our city back.

It is time for the voters of LA to elect a person who cares about the people of this great city of Los Angeles (a city with a population of about 4 million people and 465 square miles). The current three elected officials at city hall have abused their position; they have failed the people of Los Angeles, being in city hall for the past 12 years is enough failed governance.

The current three elected officials at LA city hall should get a verbal lynching for their performance. The City of Los Angeles is in its worst condition in this century. The cause of this despicable condition is the product of the current administration.

It is time to break down the political machine in LA; No more business as usual; the buck stops on Election Day, March 5, 2013 and May 21, 2013 for those who need the additional boost.

It is time to elect officials who truly care about the people and the city of LA, officials who exercise their elected position for the good of the people of LA, not what is in it for me.

The masses of peoples in Los Angeles outnumber the special interests groups' voters at least 8-2. If we all register and vote, we can take back our government. If the voters remain apathetic and refrain from voting, the consequences will be the total collapse of LA city and its government; financially and economically.

Let us elect a new breed of leaders who represent all the people of Los Angeles, not just the select few. We have an opportunity to replace about 70% of LA City Hall.

Let us unify and vote the current administration out of office.

I repeat; Power to the people!

"The people of this State do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies which serve them.

The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know

and what is not good for them to know.

The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created."
