My Husband Has Been Endorsed By The LA Times!

Wed Feb 13, 2013 4:05 am

He's running for Los Angeles City Controller. So far, he's been endorsed by the LA Democrats, both former Controllers, scores of organizations, and now the Los Angeles Times!

Congrats! That's a well-written endorsement. I liked this bit:

Quote:

But an effective controller also needs to be focused and persistent to bring about the changes the office's audits demand. Otherwise, he'll be little more than a headline-grabbing gadfly.

Is he a control freak?  




Best of luck to him!
I'll tell my friends and family in Los Angeles to vote for him.

ENDORSEMENTS:
Former Controller Laura Chick


Wow, even the Chick's like your husband. Be careful zrs70.


What exactly does the Controller do? Is this just another place for bureaucrats to hide out until the next election?

Controller is chief auditor and financial watchdog of the city.

Many politicians promise better services. The controller finds the $$$. A good controller finds it by exposing wasted resources and capturing the funds without burdening the taxpayer.

And while you are at it, get him a specialist portrait photographer. Looks are very important too for voters. That shot of him is more suitable for IDs than for a public campaign. Face too frontal, and unflatering lighting. Angling his posture and a little tilt of the head would also help.
Anyway, all the best to him and you.
