He didn't say, "I endorse Bernard Parks," but today during Doug McIntyre's interview with Councilmember Bernard Parks as they discussed the November 4, 2008 Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors election -- McIntyre did say, "I feel it's very important that you win" (versus Mark Ridley-Thomas). I got the quote close enough. Point is, Doug has been following the SEIU 721 story, and is aware of how Ridley-Thomas is being backed by this shady side, and I'm glad Doug was able to see what Zuma Dogg sees -- and that is the un-exciting reality that CM Bernard Parks all of the sudden is the good guy. And in THIS election...he is the VERY GOOD guy.
Besides ZD feeling Parks would take things in a much better direction than Ridley-Thomas as Supervisor, based on what I have heard...Parks may win by default anyway.
Cause if it is true that the SEIU 721 has been raising dues through the roof, in order to fund the Ridley-Thomas campaign...Parks is gonna win, un-opposey.
So as each day passes, I feel better and better about my decision to URGE people to Vote for Parks. One because the other side is trying to buy the election with corrupt money and will probably be shut-down anyway. AND...because I am fearful of what will happen, legislatively, if Ridley-Allen Ripple was in that BOS seat.
Don't be double-bamboozled! Make sure Parks wins. And it ain't gonna be easy. Cause he TRULY IS the grass-roots, down-home candidate. And I DO worry they don't have enough people or money behind them. SO PLEASE DO ALL YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT.
THANKS TO DOUG FOR COVERING A LOCAL ISSUE AND LETTING PEOPLE YOU KNOW THAT YOU FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT THAT PARKS WINS. AND LET'S HOPE THE LAW TAKES OVER, AND HE WINS BY DEFAULT!
