Hey Mr. Mayor - how about if I stop at the U.S. Post Office and pick you up a voter registration so you can join the Democratic Party? I am even willing to drive up the hill to deliver it to city hall. To solve this state's and country's numerous fiscal problems we need politicians who don't get their way, taking their bat and ball and going home. WAH WAH WAH

Sorry, that should read "we don't need politicians who when they don't get their way, take their bat and ball and go home".

If he ever seeks to run for re-election or for higher office he can kiss the endorsement of the CRA goodbye. We don't like RINO's. Huey wants to make California business friendly once again. You don't do that by chasing business and anyone with money out of state. If any of the 3 tax initiatives passes in Nov. you can kiss more businesses and the rich good-bye. France raced its top rate from 41% to 75% and the exodus of the millionaires looks like the running of the bulls in Spain.

His name is plastered all over AL Muratsuchi as a "Republican" supporting him. I have to say it's kind of funny they also have Gardena Mayor Paul Tanaka supporting Al, problem is he supports Craig Huey. Apparently Mayor George considers Craig too extreme. In a letter I sent him I pointed out his inconsistancy. The Democrats who run this state need one more vote to have a veto proof State Assembly. It is these same Democrats who have bankrupt this state, yet Craig Huey is too extreme. If the people of Palos Verdes don't dump this deceiver on his rear, I will be very disappointed. By the way, I agree whole heartedly with the post above. Vote NO on any tax or bond proposition.
