Wilshire Boulevard Mayoral Forum Sunday, February 10

The Wilshire Boulevard Mayoral Forum will be held in the auditorium of John Burroughs Middle School (corner Wilshire and McCadden) on Sunday Feb 10th at 11am.

Last summer, Larchmont Buzz editors thought it would be great to have a discussion with the mayoral candidates about the future of our city. We thought, let’s organize it around Wilshire Boulevard, the historic spine of our city, and invite all the neighborhood councils and homeowners associations along Wilshire to join in.

Kevin James

You are invited to join the Larchmont Buzz, the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council, Los Angeles Citywide Alliance of Neighborhood Councils, Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council, The Larchmont Chronicle, League of Women Voters, Mid-City West Community Council, Miracle Mile Chamber of Commerce, Miracle Mile Civic Coalition, Miracle Mile Residential Association, Park LaBrea News-Beverly Press and Wilshire Center-Koreatown Neighborhood Council for this real life civics lesson.

Jan Perry

Mayoral Candidates Kevin James, Jan Perry and Emanuel Pleitez have accepted our invitation to participate in this unique grassroots discussion of issues critical to the sections of our city united by our grand Wilshire Boulevard. 
The town hall discussion, which will be introduced by City Council District Four representative Tom LaBonge and moderated by publisher, editor, author and journalist Kevin Roderick, will also be webcast on the John Burroughs web channel.

Emanuel Pleitez

And, if that’s not enough to get you there, you can also register to vote!
 The Office of the City Clerk Election Division will be on hand to register voters, provide voting guides and recruit poll workers.

So please, come one, come all to the Wilshire Blvd Mayoral Town Hall on Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at John Burroughs Middle School. Please RSVP at [email protected].

  1. YJ Draiman says that voters deserve to hear from all Mayoral candidates on the ballot
    It is anti democratic to ignore candidates who have earned their place to be on the ballot. (I personally interviewed about 10,000 people to get the signatures)
    In the current political mood and the growing apathy by voters it is imperative that every candidate who is officially on the ballot to be heard by the public.
    Ignoring these candidates only reinforces to the voting public that money and not the most qualified candidate is given a chance to run for office with a level playing field.
    The deck is stacked against a candidate who is not willing to be swayed by money and political influence. This is a sad day for our Democracy.
    The Media and the various organizations who host a candidate forum – debate have a great responsibility to present unbiased information to the public, of all the candidates that appear on the ballot with a level playing field.
    To ignore some candidates is a distortion of our Democratic oath and they are practicing the very same unacceptable behavior that they are trying to correct in today’s political scene.
    By ignoring candidates who are on the ballot the voters are deprived of critical information and opinions of all the candidates on the ballot. It is a disservice to the community at large.
    Angelenos have the right to an open and balanced election process resting on the values of our democracy, which is open to all candidates.
    We have to show to the public how real democracy at work – by presenting all the candidates, not just the select few.
    The right to vote is the right that protects all other rights. That includes all official candidates.
