Los Angeles Elections 2017


March 7 2017 LA Election Recommendations

City of Los Angeles


Jan B Tucker in blue, Eric Garcetti in black

Ho-Hum….Eric Garcetti is going to win. It’s a fait accompli. It’s not that he hasn’t done anything decent; he has. When it comes to following through on promises he made to me and mine four (4) years ago….well there’s just no track record. For example, read: http://janbtucker.com/blog/2017/01/10/dr-robert-shomers-death-is-a-clarion-call-for-law-enforcement-reform/ Take note that even though I asked for any documentation as to whether in four whole years Eric has done anything about changing the LAPD’s unscientific and effectively racist eyewitness identification procedures that I requested on December 27, 2016, I’m still waiting for a response. The city keeps giving me one compliance deadline after another, most recently promising compliance after the election on March 24. Technically they were supposed to comply within ten days of December 27, 2016. Do Black, Brown and Yellow lives matter or do they have to wait another four years to reform effectively racist procedures?

City Attorney and City Controller

As much as I like Mike Feuer and Ron Galperin they’re unopposed because Los Angeles maintains onerous filing fees and petition requirements that discriminate against poor people and working class candidates….and those laws are remain on the books because limousine liberals like it that way.

City Council District 1

Jesse Rosas

The only candidate who showed up at our NOW and CALLAC forum on sexual harassment and racism in the district was Jesse Rosas. He’s well spoken and supportive of our issues.

City Council District 15

Caney Arnold is supported by all the Berniecrats I know.

Board of Education District 2

Carl Petersen submitted an outstanding questionnaire response to SFV/NELA NOW and has our endorsement.

Community College Board of Trustees Office 2

Vote AGAINST Steve Veres. When he was on the San Fernando City Council he was in the pocket of developer Sev Ashkenazy, who is a pig.

Community College Board of Trustees Office 4

Dallas Fowler

Vote for Dallas Denise Fowler without hesitation. She’s great. Incumbent Ernie Moreno botched an investigation into corruption at Mission College when he was President—which would be excusable except that I’d given him written advice which he declined to take beforehand that would have prevented the debacle. His statements to my face about planning for a satellite campus were also proven false when I got his own emails under the California Public Records Act.

Community College Board of Trustees Office 6

Jan B. Tucker & Nancy Pearlman

Nancy Pearlman is the best thing since sliced bread on the College Board. See http://janbtucker.com/blog/2013/05/13/nancy-pearlman-is-our-community-college-trustee/. In the past I’ve supported her opponent Gabriel Buelna, but I suspect that he got suckered by the “Mexican American” [read that like “Negro” as opposed to Black or African American, and as juxtaposed to Chicano] political hacks around town to run against Nancy. The hacks of all stripes have wanted to take her down for years because she’s too damn honest and principled.

About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
