LA CITY Council 15 District endorsement: Mavar supports experienced "local boy make good"

A new representative for the Los Angeles City Council 15th District will be elected on January 17, 2012. As constituents, we will expect our new Councilperson to be assessable, listen to our concerns, and take action to resolve issues. Most importantly, he’ll need to “hit the ground running”. In my opinion, Joe Buscaino is the best candidate for the job.

Joe Buscaino is committed with his heart and soul and has the vision and focus to work on the important issues facing our district. Joe has lived in the community his whole life, is an LAPD Officer, has participated in numerous community events and has been in involved with many non-profit organizations. Joe Buscaino the quintessential “local boy makes good”!

I grew up with Joe. It was easy to recognize his natural leadership skills and his ability to mentor and empower kids. He’s always been respectful and kind to everyone and I admire his honesty and integrity. The Buscaino Family provided an old-school, rock solid foundation for Joe and it shows in everything he does.

This is not an easy job to take on. The City of Los Angeles is facing a $400 million budget shortfall. Plus, our demands on “quality of life” issues along with making sure we are not the forgotten stepchild of the City of Los Angeles. Joe Buscaino knows firsthand about our city budget and how it affect all areas of the city. As a LAPD senior lead officer, Joe understands the importance of communication, therefore there’s no doubt in mind that he will be there to listen and take action.

Joe Buscaino is practical and above all, an honest individual who knows skillfully how to navigate the process of city government. He is the obvious and best choice for this seat on the Los Angeles City Council. I support him whole heartedly and will strive to insure his election this January. Join Me!
