According to the Daily News, 2 out of 3 people in Los Angeles are struggling to get by. 2 out of 3. I live in the San Fernando Valley, where arguably, the recession has hit the hardest. You cannot drive down a street in Van Nuys or North Hollywood without seeing “Bank Owned” or “Short Sale.” If you look closely, if you allow yourself to make eye contact, you can see the pain. The worry. The resignation.
The man who was elected by these people to make their lives better, is absent.
This city needs someone with integrity and passion. Someone who does not envision the job as a stepping stone to a higher political office. Someone who cares about the citizens that cannot afford cars. Homes. Food. Someone who gives hope and not rhetoric. Someone who delivers on promises of education. Safety. Transit.
Someone who stays in town until the job is done.
