The Westchester Democratic Club will feature two candidates running in high profile races in the upcoming general Los Angeles municipal election at its meeting Tuesday, April 23 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the IHOP restaurant, 8600 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Westchester.
Former Councilman and Assemblyman Mike Feuer, candidate for Los Angeles city attorney, and attorney/businessman Ron Galperin, candidate for Los Angeles city controller, will speak about their campaigns and plans for the office seats they are seeking.
Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a question and answer session following the candidates’ presentations.
In a heated race to defeat to City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, Feuer is focusing his campaign on secure neighborhoods, safe streets, protecting consumers, preserving the environment and improving the business climate in L.A. Feuer said he hopes to focus on keeping kids out of gangs, criminal prosecution, and fighting for the rights of everyday Angelinos.
As city attorney, Feuer said he would fight for innovative solutions and a city government that inspires confidence and trust. In the March 5 primary, Feuer captured 44.1 percent of the vote to 28.7 percent for Trutanich.
In the race for controller, Galperin is running against Councilman Dennis Zine to take over the post currently held by Wendy Greuel, who is termed out and running for mayor. Galperin said he hopes to cut waste and inefficiency, create jobs and improve city services.
He said his plans include using city assets wisely and effectively, collecting money owed, and to be strategic in purchases and growing business in L.A.
Galperin received 37.8 percent of the vote March 5 while Zine received 36.5 percent of the vote.
Parking is available in the lot off Manchester Avenue.
