Alan Jackson secures another police association endorsement

This from the Alan Jackson campaign:

John S. Thomas
Alan Jackson for District Attorney 2012
Tel: (818) 396-6578


Los Angeles, March 1st – Today the San Gabriel Police Officers’ Association announced their endorsement of Alan Jackson for District Attorney. SGPOA is the latest of several other prominent police organizations across the County to endorse Jackson’s candidacy.

“It is absolutely essential for police officers to have a battle tested, top notch prosecutor, not a politician as our next DA. Alan Jackson’s record as a leader and prosecutor is unmatched. The San Gabriel Police Officers’ Association is proud to endorse Jackson for DA.”

“In the election for District Attorney, Jackson is clearly the choice of law enforcement in LA County. Police officers are picking sides and they are standing with Alan Jackson,” said Jackson’s strategist John S. Thomas.

Deputy DA Alan Jackson stated, “This latest endorsement means a lot to me. I’m a cops’ prosecutor and have prided myself on working closely with law enforcement throughout my entire career as a prosecutor. As DA I promise to continue to partner with law enforcement to keep our streets safe.”

Jackson has also been endorsed by Inglewood PA and El Monte POA as well as police chiefs representing over 100 years of law enforcement experience.

Mario Trujillo endorsed by Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard

In his email announcement, District Attorney candidate Mario Trujillo said of Congresswoman Roybal-Allard's endorsement: "I am proud to be supported by one of the most impressive legislators in the United States. The outpouring of support from elected officials illustrates their trust in me and my ability to lead the LA County District Attorney's Office. Leaders like Congresswoman Roybal-Allard understand that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office is an important position that needs leadership."

Trutanich has lost the grass roots

In a sharply worded denouncement of City Attorney Carmen Trutanich's record of failure and betrayal, a CityWatch LA editorial made it clear that Trutanich has lost the support of the people who elected him.

Citing Trutanich's stalled ACE Program as one of many reasons why his voter base has abandoned him, it was interesting to note that the fears first expressed about the ACE Program in the blogs have finally resonated with the Neighborhood Councils. The NC's once championed Trutanich as the "People's Lawyer" until his shock betrayal of his 'Pledge to Serve' forced them to realize that he was, perhaps, more aptly to be termed the "People's Liar."

Trutanich, for his part, seems unconcerned that the grass roots support that once hailed him have now abandoned him. He seems far more interested in serving the needs and interests of organized labor, and few would doubt that his reputation for bullying, threatening and making empty promises is better suited to the Jimmy Hoffa style of leadership favored by Big Labor.

The mob references are all tru! Nuch is the worst City Attorney LA has ever had. Trust me I've worked for many of them. It sickens me to think of this clown as DA. Nuch has raised more money than the other candidates but he has another slick advantage. He has his campaign workers getting paid by the City! Yes, he either has them on the payroll as City Attorney employees or he gives them phony contracts with the City to work as independent contractors. What other DA candidate gets taxpayer paid campaign workers? or gets chauffeured around in a CITY car to all his DA fundraisers? This guy thinks the law doesn't apply to him. In his mind he's untouchable and above the law!

The higher they climb, the harder they fall. Someone should dig out that photo of Jackass Weiss on election night, looking dejected, defeated and demoralized after losing his ass, and photoshop Nuch's face in place of Jack's, cause that's gonna be history repeating itself for Nuch. Karma's a bitch, ain't it.
