It’s time for Tom LaBonge to get out of the way and move on to something he is qualified to do — Sister Cities ambassador, LA’s official greeter — and make room a City Council member in District 4.
This is an historic moment in CD4, the first time in decades that an incumbent or a staffer anointed to succeed in the office, faces a serious challenge.
Both Stephen Box and Tomas O’Grady are intelligent, experienced and capable of doing a better job for the district and everyone in Los Angeles.
Thanks to Ziggy Kruse of HNN-TV you can meet Box, endorsed by the Daily News and LA Clean Sweep, and O’Grady, a Neighborhood Council member and school reformer. Both have put together credible campaigns with volunteers and nearly as much money combined as the incumbent has.
statements show why indeed it is necessary to have an open election …
especially after almost 4 decades of having to live with the “what
street are you living on” opener by the incumbent,” Kruse said..
Every vote for Box or O’Grady is a vote against LaBonge and will help make sure there is a runoff in what shapes as a close race where every single vote will matter.
