Yes on Measure S Gives LA City Council Friday Deadline To Start Reforms
The Yes on Measure S campaign commends LA City Council members David Ryu, Paul Krekorian, Paul Koretz and Joe Buscaino for their recently proposed ban on campaign contributions from developers. We now call upon LA City Council President Herb Wesson to schedule this reform proposal for immediate consideration.
In addition, we call upon Council President Wesson and Mayor Eric Garcetti to include the mayor’s proposed ban on corrupt ex parte communications in this reform proposal and end once and for all the legalized backroom bribery that is destroying the culture and character of our city.
We believe these steps are necessary but far from sufficient to reduce traffic, increase affordable housing and ultimately take back our city from the special interests that are profiting from the status quo at the expense of us all.
In March, the voters will have an opportunity to approve Measure S, which will sideline the special interests once and for all and empower neighborhoods and communities to chart their own destiny. But between now and then, we call upon our city leaders to actually lead, and stand up to the special interests on behalf of the public interest.
The supporters of Measure S representing neighborhoods and communities across Los Angeles demand an answer by 9 a.m. Friday. We look forward to LA City Council President Wesson's response.
Vote Yes on S on March 7.
