The California chapter of the League of Humane Voters is hosting “Los Angeles Mayoral Convention II” tomorrow, Sunday, Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The forum will take place at the Beverly Garland Hotel in North Hollywood.
Five candidates running for mayor of Los Angeles are expected to attend. City Controller Wendy Greuel, Councilwoman Jan Perry, former federal prosecutor and radio talk show host Kevin James, businessman Emanuel Pleitez and Councilman Eric Garcetti will all be on hand to answer questions from the animal welfare community.
Kevin James jumped ahead of the pack with his 11-point plan to prioritize animal welfare issues if he is elected as mayor. So far no other candidate has put forth anything as extensive. The forum will give each a chance to share their plans for animal services.
The League of Humane Voters endorses animal-friendly candidates. According to Mary Krasn, spokesperson for the group, a mayoral endorsement will be made within a week.
The Beverly Garland Hotel is located at 4222 Vineland Avenue in North Hollywood. The event is free and open to the public. Hotel parking is $5 but there is also parking on the street. For further information contact Mary Krasn (310) 951-7686.
