County Democrats Endorse Weho Incumbents

The party chairman also reiterates opposition to term limits.

The Los Angeles County Democratic Party voted to endorse West Hollywood City Council incumbents on the 2013 ballot, the party announced Tuesday.

"Jeffrey Prang and John Duran are longtime fighters who have time and again stood up for West Hollywood," party Chairman Eric Bauman said in a statement. "That's why they have earned the endorsement and strong support of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. We look forward to working with Prang and Duran in the fight for Democratic values and for our community."

Bauman added a re-affirmation of the party's opposition to Measure C, which seeks to establish term limits for West Hollywood council members.

The election is March 5 and features nine candidates after two council seats.

Perhaps the guy at Latham and Watkins can buy you one, Michael. Or call your nearest developers office. They should have one handy...although you might have to leave West Hollywood for someone who opposes C.

My feeling about Measure C is: it's up to the voters. Yes or no. And this: if it's good enough for the presidential elections and for congressional elections and state elections - why such fear and loathing at such a lower level. I can understand how some politicians like Hugo Chavez and Papa Doc might name themselves presidents for life or for as long as they can get away with it or Strom who clearly snoozed for the latter part of his life, but why even be so militant over a measure that won't kick in for 12 years???

Just got a flier that like D'Amico's endorsement might be more important than County Dems - It's one from "AnimalPAC" calling Duran and Prang animal heroes for their support of humane legislation in the council. This sort of stuff does resonate with a lot of uncommitted voters. And if it shows the advantages of incumbancy, nothing wrong with that - elected officials who do a good job should have a chance to continue doing so, despite the attempts by losers who can't win elections any other way than with undemocratic term limits to impose arbitrary restrictions over a decade from now.

Jane Goodall is an animal hero. Prang and Duran are politicians. That mailer is an insult to our intelligence.
