Los Angeles Mayor's Race

April 18, 1993

In response to "Decision '93," April 11:

Profiles of 24 people in the race for mayor. Take another look at their interests--hiking, athletics, scuba diving, growing roses, dogs, crossword puzzles, etc. Gimme a break! Is that all there is to these folks' lives and world?

Tens of thousands of people are sleeping in the streets in this City of Angels; in some parts of town nearly half the young are unemployed; murder is now a wholesale business and these clowns are talking about hiking and Greek dancing. I am surprised none mentioned aerobics or watching Oprah.

The two exceptions are Councilman Ernani Bernardi, who tells us that city government is his thing, and Frank Teran, who says that drug rehab is his.

The candidates left out their main interest: that nice juicy mayor's job with its power, perks and privileges.
