Who is the media hiding from the public? LA's mayoral candidate YJ Draiman
Mayoral candidate YJ Draiman who attended most of the Forums/Debates was denied a seat on the candidate panel, because he did not collect enough money in his campaign fund and not because he was not qualified.
Draiman has over 4 decades of business experience with assorted and practical management. Such experience can be utilized to advance our city to financial and economic sustainability.
Draiman's vision to make Los Angeles the World Capital of Renewable Energy, Energy efficiency and Water conservation is only one of his proposals. If you read Draiman's position paper, you would get a feel for his passion and dedication to public service as a servant of the people.
If our founding fathers would see how money and influence is controlling elections today, they would turn over in their graves.
Our current Democratic process in elections is all about money and not the need of the people as a whole.
The time to rebuild our Democratic process the way it was designed to be, is long overdue. The people must unify and demand the return of our Democracy, full disclosure and presentations of all the candidates on the ballot. To do otherwise is a usurpation of our Democratic process.
Do you believe the election process is fair?
I do have to add that there are some very good candidates out there, but they do not have the financial backing and resources to win an election, even the media ignores them.
It is the masses of voters who can change our government, by voting for the most qualified candidate, not the one with the most money. Money does not equate qualifications. Money in elections equates to special interest controlling the candidate. The interest of the people becomes secondary.
This is still a democracy and we the people (the other 80% who are not the special interest groups), if we all vote, we can take back our government.
We outnumber the special interests voters. After all, it is supposed to be a government by the people for the people - not the other way around.
When an elected official performs his job honestly and properly, than there is no need for millions dollars to be elected for mayor of Los Angeles.
