This is nothing but good news for the LA Animal community.
David has been far more forceful in his pronouncements than Koretz about specific pro-animal positions.
Koretz is playing it cute not committing himself forcefully behind pro-animal legislation positions and reform of LAAS. He just says he is the best candidate for the animal community and look at his record.
However, Vahedi has been much more specific regarding what he would do.
Well, in any event, contact them directly and see if you can get them to commit to specifics.
I am disappointed in Koretz's weak stand on animal issues; just saying he is the animal communities best bet without making any committment or taking any strong stand. If he is afraid of offending anyone now and losing votes, he will be equally wishy-washy facing a still-popular Mayor Villaraigosa in July.
He does not support much lifting the pet limit from three to a number based on an owner's ability to sustain a healthy and happy home with multiple companion animals. He wants to raise the limit to an arbitrary 4 or 5--max.
I don't think Paul is out man.
I have an idea though, we ought to support and encourage Kathy Riordan to run for Council in 2010 in her West Valley district. Although some complain she has been too slow to publicly push for change, let's recognize that her main issue will be animals as a councilmember, always working the Council and Mayor all the time to drop kitty and doggy limits, better monitor shelter budget and conditions. AND, as ex-Mayor Riordan's daughter, she would have a real chance.
