Before Democratic Assemblyman Paul Krekorian really wanted to be an L.A. City Councilman, he really wanted to be my assemblyman and school board member, and now is forcing us to spend millions of dollars on unnecessary elections.
Why would he care about our state or his rise to political power, especially when it is accompanied with one of the highest paychecks in politics? Now that the primary is over we have two solid candidates, Mike Gatto and Sunder Ramani.
After reading Gatto’s website, he doesn’t seem like that bad of a guy, and I can admit that after running for office myself, the accusations of campaign finance fraud against him could be an honest mistake. He proudly defends the “Californian Dream,” has an impressive list of endorsements and apparently is rather popular with organized labor. He cannot, however, measure up to the experience of Ramani when it comes to the values that built America.
