DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles mayoral debate was held Saturday in Downtown Los Angeles. The debate was hosted by the Los Angeles League of Conservation Voters in partnership with the League of Women Voters.
The four candidates who led in fundraising participated in the debate, including Councilman Eric Garcetti, City Controller Wendy Greuel, Councilwoman Jan Perry and former assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin James.
A moment of silence was held before the debate got underway in light of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that took place in Newtown, Conn., on Friday. Among the items discussed during the debate included the safety of Los Angeles schools and solutions to reducing gun violence, and all four candidates expressed their sorrow for the victims throughout the night.
But it appeared the creation of jobs and a green economy took center stage.
"I have a plan to clean our air, and our water, and to create 20,000 local jobs -- good jobs, green jobs," said Garcetti. [ZD: WAY to connect with voters. In a recent poll, ""I have a plan to clean our air, and our water," came up #213 in issues people are most concerned about, this year. And you already LOST the jobs, so the second part is fantasy hot-air, if not total flat-out, shameless bullshit.]
The candidates also played up their accomplishments in office. Perry noted the creation of two wetlands in South Los Angeles, and Greuel played up her developments on solar power. [SOLAR POWER? #1 priority of NO ONE, except we now know Wendy is obviously backed by solar money. SOME PRIORITY! THAT'S GONNA KEEP COPS ON THE STREET, AND THE FIRE DEPARTMENT SHOWING UP?]
But outsider Kevin James contends he's the one to provide new leadership.
"The city has never developed a comprehensive environmental sustainability plan," he said. [Oh, no...THAT'S what they quoted. Zzzzzzzz.]
[WATCH THE VIDEO FOR ALL THE OTHER PHONY B.S. THAT MEANS NOTHING IN REALITY, but makes people feel like they know what they will be getting with each candidate...and remember, it ALL comes true. Just, whatever you do...DON'T VOTE FOR WENDY OR ERIC! - ZD]
