SPOTLIGHT ON Council District 14 

Incumbent:  Jose Huizar

Challenger:  Rudy Martinez


Our Pick: Jose Huizar




Rudy Martinez has spent a small fortune in mail drops telling us why he thinks the councilman sucks,  but  says little about what he’ll do to solve problems in the district. Mutiple calls to the campaign office resulted in staff (some former Huizar staffers) telling us AGAIN why Huizar sucks, but being unable to state what Martinez stands for or what he intends to do. 

Requests for call backs from senior staff and/or the candidate resulted in zero contact.  Not a great start in responding to potential constituent requests or concerns, the one thing this candidate seems to be running on.   Pretty weak and not very impressive.


Jose Huizar is at the forefront of several key improvement projects in the 14th Council District, including the light rail Metro Gold Line Eastside Extension, and numerous improvements to parks and public spaces and is endorsed by labor, community organizers and the LA County Democratic Party.




SPOTLIGHT ON Council District 8 

Incumbent:  Bernard Parks

Challenger:  Forescee Hogan-Rowles




CD 8’s infrastructure continues to deteriorate, jobs are few and far between, and the promise of more constituent support goes to the wayside.  

Pro Business Parks has appointed himself the head budget police officer of the City Council.  For Parks, layoffs are the way to a balanced budget meanwhile more tax break and waiving of fees  for “job creating” developers.

 Forescee Hogan- Rowles received 56% of the vote from members of the Los Angeles Democratic Central Committee – leaving Bernard Parks as the only Democratic L.A. City Councilmember who failed to earn an endorsement for re-election. 




Time for the Republican posing as a Democrat go.






Our Pick: Forescee Hogan-Rowles
