"I dream of a world where the truth is what shapes people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true."


YJ Draiman

Candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

I, YJ Draiman, Candidate for mayor of the City of Los Angeles, propose a joint effort to fix our city and re-establish Los Angeles as one of the most vibrant, productive and progressive cities in America.

In order to achieve this goal it will require you the people of L.A. and me, as Mayor, to roll up our sleeves and work elbow-to-elbow together, or it won’t be done. What has to be done has to be done.

I am not asking for you to give something to your city, rather, I am asking you to join me in doing something with, and for your city.

I am not asking for your gifts, but for your assistance, because hand-in-hand, united in our common cause, we will NOT fail.

I believe there is no greater force than the will and spirit of the people of Los Angeles if we choose to unite and work together.

 

The American ideal is not that we all agree with each other, or even like each other, every minute of the day. It is rather that we will respect each other's rights, especially the right to be different, and that, at the end of the day, we will understand that we are one people, one country, and one community, and that our well-being is inextricably bound up with the well-being of each and every one of our fellow citizens.

 

YJ Draiman believes in principles and integrity over profit and personal gain

How will YJ Draiman affect the campaign issues for Los Angeles Mayor in 2017

YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

Dear Fellow Los Angelinos

Thank you for taking a few moments to learn more about my ideas for building a new Los Angeles.
I appreciate your interest in my campaign and hope my jobs plan will provide you with a better understanding of the type of Mayor I hope to be – one focused on transparency and putting Los Angelinos back to work.

Los Angeles faces one of the most challenging times in our city’s history.
Because of the unfriendly business environment, along with some of the highest tax rates in the nation, families and businesses are being forced to make unthinkable trade-offs, including living the city they love. But I am optimistic about
Los Angeles future.

I am running for Mayor because I believe everything is still possible in
Los Angeles. That is why as a Mayor that makes LA attractive to business and will create jobs, will be my priority. It is the only way we are going to clean up the mess in Los Angeles. I have a unique skill set and the detailed plan to get Los Angeles going again.

I have started businesses from the ground up and within a short time revenues exceeded $60 million a year. I have been involved in rehabilitation of whole neighborhoods; I have built a 5 star hotel and implemented energy efficiency for over 20 years. I operated a chain of electronics stores.

I think
Los Angeles needs a little bit more of a business-like attitude. We have to be honest about our problems, and face them by offering grown-up solutions and put an end to the partisan bickering and hand-wringing that is business as usual.

I can effectively balance the interests of developers, big business and those who are well-situated and I am more concerned about the interests of everyday citizens."

If you do not know and admit that there is a problem, you cannot fix it. Our Pension liability is growing and if its solvency is not addressed, it will put LA into bankruptcy, our infrastructure is deteriorating, our water source is diminished, our utility rates and taxes are climbing. This must not only stop, but it must be reversed.

I am running for Mayor to reinvigorate
Los Angeles economic potential – it will take time and the effort of all the people of Los Angeles. We shall overcome these economic hardships if we work together as a unified force.

If you have any suggestions on how we can move
Los Angeles forward, please contact our campaign. We will listen. We want this campaign to be special, one that addresses your concerns and speaks to your hopes for what a new Los Angeles can be.

Together, we can put
Los Angeles back to work and make our City great again and call it the city that works.

Turnout figures for recent L.A. city elections show people aren’t naturally excited about local politics. It’s always worth noting that the choices voters make in these “small” elections are crucial because local government can affect people’s lives in bigger ways than state or federal government does.

L.A. needs outside voices in City Hall, so give all of the candidates a look. Candidate lists are available at http://clerk.lacity.org/elections/candidates, and fundraising information and links to candidates’ campaign literature is at https://ethics.lacity.org/campaignfinance.cfm.





Am I Missing Something ?

When you vote for an incumbent, you are perpetuating our government as it is now. Nothing will change. These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1.) We are advised NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

In addition, here is another one worth considering. 
2.) Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. Why do we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What is interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second did not.

Think about it..... Last but not least:
3.) Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping payments to illegal aliens such as monthly payments for each child, money for housing, food stamps, free education including college and also the right to vote?

Am I the only one missing something?

General Municipal Election: Tuesday - May 16, 2017


Almighty G-d, You have given us this good land for our heritage. We humbly ask You that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Your favor and glad to do Your will. Bless our land with honorable endeavor, sound learning and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties and fashion into one united people the multitude brought here out of many nations and tongues. Endow with the Spirit of wisdom those to whom in Your Name we entrust authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Your law we may show forth Your praise among the nations on earth. In time of prosperity fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble do not allow our trust in You to fail. Amen.

The Los Angeles we know and love is full of rich diversity and limitless opportunity, and it is not a thing of the past. The message of my campaign is about working together restoring trust and integrity, and to rebuild the City of Los Angeles we love by restoring a robust economy, creating jobs, fiscal responsibility and ending failed government policies, and this is the overwhelmingly positive message of our message to the people of Los Angeles.
