It's gonna be June tomorrow, y'all...HELL YEAAAAH!
As previously mentioned, blog posting goes down as Zuma Dogg's immersion in the community increases. (A lot of catching up to do on video and blog posting...but hopefully, the videos will be worth it.)
MAILANDER'S STREET-HASSLE.BLOGSPOT.COM: Thanks to Joe Mailander from Street-Hassle.blogspot.com for his coverage of Zuma Dogg's coverage of Janice Hahn's Press Conference on the steps of City Hall this week regarding Prop 215 Medical Marijuana and LAPD's involvement on Federal DEA busts. (She's against it!) The ZumaCam captured he entire speech and look for it to be uploaded this weekend. (Today, hopefully.)
VILLARAIGOSA HAS SOME ON CAMERA FUN WITH BIG ZD FROM THE 213!: There have been some generic warm and fuzzy "on camera" moment between L.A. City Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and L.A. Public Advocate Zuma Dogg, but ZD and Antonio almost had to file for marriage (now that it is legal) after the two biggest camera hogs in the city had a "photo-op off", Friday morning in Koreatown, for new DONE GM Bong Hwater Kim's press ceremony.
I unveiled my new "Zuma Dogg for Mayor '09" shirt for him and asked, "Will you support me for mayor? If you support me, I'll support you. We can 'co-supporter' each other!?!?" You can see him take a look at the shirt and can't hold back his amusement.
Then, when he took to the podium, his first words for all in attendance and all the press cameras (ABC 7 and the rest) was, "Zuuuuma Dogg...Candidate!"
So thank you to the mayor for officially kicking off my campaign to run for mayor against him. (Even though I am still only in the exploratory stages.) But now that the mayor has leaked the announcement, it has caught me off-guard, and I'm forced to move everything up. (LOL!)
The event took place at the same time Zuma Dogg was supposed to be at City Hall for Public Comment. (It was "presentation and proclamations" so I had time to hit Koreatown for the event, before taking the bus to City Hall in time for comment.)
But CM Herb Wesson was at the early morning event, too. On the way out, I aksed Herb (as a joke), if he could give me a ride back to City Hall because I was in a hurry to get back for public comment. I guess it wasn't a joke. THANKS HERB! Sure beat the bus. (No stops, I was the craziest person riding, and he dropped me off, right in front of City Hall.)
VIDEOS OF HAHN, ZUMA AND VILLAR COMING SOON.
