In March 2013, voters in the City of Los Angeles will be asked to select its next mayor from a wide field of very qualified candidates. Many political observers believe this race will be one of the most interesting and important in the nation. The next Mayor of Los Angeles will face unprecedented challenges – a budget deficit of unmatched proportions, a failing state government, decreasing social services and a fleeting base of businesses – large and small – upon which to build a vibrant city.
Voters should make a decision of this magnitude after a careful and thoughtful engagement on the issues – not solely on who spends the most on campaign ads and attack mailers or who can boast the greatest number of endorsements. This decision should be made on the issues, the candidates’ vision and the leadership skills necessary to take Los Angeles into the future. Therefore, candidate recognition is more important than ever.
