County Parties Endorse Candidates in the Los Angeles City Elections

The Los Angeles County Democratic and GOP parties announce their endorsements for candidates running in the L.A. City elections, held March 5.

With local elections less than two weeks away, the Los Angeles County Democratic and Republican parties have for the most part decided which candidates they're backing.

The Republican Party has endorsed Kevin James for mayor, while the L.A. County Democrats have not come to a consensus on which candidate to back.

The other candidates running for mayor include L.A. City Councilwoman Jan Perry; Emanuel Pleitez, Chief Strategy Officer at L.A.-based technology company Spokeo; L.A. City Councilman Eric Garcetti; L.A. City Controller Wendy Greuel; former L.A. County and federal worker Addie Miller, factory production worker Norton Sandler and Yehuda Draiman, council secretary for the Northridge East Neighborhood Council.

The Democratic Party has endorsed Assemblyman Mike Feuer for city attorney and Ron Galperin, business owner and attorney, for city controller. The party also gave its endorsements to Bob Blumenfield, Paul Koretz, Felipe Fuentes, Mike Bonin and Joe Buscaino for their bids in the Los Angeles City Council race.

The Republican Party is tipping its hat to William Morrison, Joyce Pearson and Jesse Barron for City Council; and endorsed Jozef Thomas Essavi, Ernest Henry Moreno and Tom Oliver for the Community College District Board.

HUGH LIST OF BONIN FOR CITY COUNCIL ENDORSEMENTS - see my 7-part post on this thread. - Tim, you have no evidence or proof of your slimy, bogus accusations against Mike. Your post represents the worst kind of dirty politics, not Mike's endorsements. If this is the character of Tina Hess supporters, we know better than to vote for her. - MIKE BONIN FOR CITY COUNCIL

Oh SOV - you can't possibly be that naive. Every single political endorsement by definition comes with a quid pro quo. It's not illegal and its not even inappropriate but to deny it is laughable. They're not endorsing him because they think he's swell - or because they think he's the right guy for the job - they endorse him because they believe he is most likely to protect/further their interests in CD11. That is what politics is all about (on both sides) so get off your high horse and join us in the real world...

HUGH LIST OF BONIN FOR CITY COUNCIL ENDORSEMENTS HERE - see my 7-part post on this thread. - (Response to Concerned Neighbor) - And the list of two hundred and five non-politician community-members who added their names to the endorsements? They're also making "back room" "dirty politics" (to quote Timothy) deals with Bonin? - And Congresswomen Hahn and Bass and Senator Lieu? The Sierra Club? Former State Senator Kuehl? The L.A. Times? The California Democratic Party? Etc, Etc, Etc. All part of some dirty-politics back room exchange of favors scheme? - Puh-leeze!!! - There's a big difference between endorsing Bonin because he is most likely to be favorable to one's political interests (a perfectly acceptable and routine practice - which is also behind the endorsements on PATCH for the other candidates) and Tim's "dirty politics" allegations which imply secret payoffs to subvert the political office and system in order to directly benefit the endorsers. The former is honest political activity, the latter is underhanded, low-life character assassination SMEAR and SLIME tactics - just what we've come to expect from the Ryavec & Friends camp. - Have you got anything else besides subtle insults, put-downs and talking down your nose at people? - CN - Wake up, grow up and shut up.

I hope Denis ZIne loses, he is the worst member of the L.A. City Council. ABZ = ANYBODY BUT ZINE, whether it is Galperin, Brazeman, Bornstein, Patel or Joya.

Dennis Zine did not want to get rid of the red light cameras that were losing the city money. The rest of the city council overroad his vote. Now, they are gone! No thanks for Dennis Zine.
