We see this kind of thing in most of the Democrat controlled Mega-Cities. Sad thing is that once these cities go the way of being One Party jurisdictions, elections become all but pointless; the primaries are Democrat popularity polls and the General Election is nothing more than a confirmation of the Party choice. Nothing changes; same elites in charge. The One Party Jurisdiction signals the end of meaningful Democracy.
Some people just don’t get it.
It’s way too late...for LA and the entire country.
Divide the united. Government did it.
Your elections and electoral process have intentionally been compromised and undermined by tens of millions of foreigners and illegal aliens...
They divided the once united....
Americans just can’t seem to figure this out.
Just as in Chicago, the idea of having elections in a hardcore democrat stronghold like L.A. is meaningless after the dems’ primary. GOPers who attempt to run for high office in those cities are wasting their time.
He makes too much sense, therefore he doesn’t have a prayer.

The Mayoral Candidate Interview Series: Kevin James
February 19, 2013
Kevin James answers on bicycle paths and transit lines:
First thing we have to do is complete the Green Line to the airport
The Westside subway
The Crenshaw Corridor
The Lamerck Park station
Certainly we think of areas in the San Fernando Valley (transit lines)
There are areas in S. Los Angeles where it might work also
We will work hard to keep fares as low as possible, to stop fare increases
1977 bike plan, we got a fraction of where we were trying to go
2010 bike plan, a very lofty goal of 634 miles of where we want to go
The goal right now is around 200 miles every 5 years
I think we can double that
We take out some of these cars, we have the space, the ability to accelerate and buy things faster
The questions came from: Bus Riders Union (hard to believe bus riders have a union)
Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition
Los Angeles Walks
Occidental College UEPI
Southern California Transit advocates

There are links to Eric Garcetti, Jan Perry, and Wendy Greuel on this page as well.
Ill end up voting for James, but he isnt much different than our existing mayor or the other 4 mayoral candidates.
They are all into this class warfare that in this case is a war between single family homes and rent controlled high density apartments, car ownership and public transportation.
