One of the greatest pleasures of this campaign has been going door to door meeting constituents and making new friends. This experience has reconfirmed my belief that District 4 is the best place to live in Los Angeles. We have so much untouched nature, so many wonderful people.
As this part of the campaign comes to a close I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your support and remind you that your vote will be critical tomorrow, Tuesday March 3rd. City Council elections are known for low voter turnout, somewhere in the range of 10% to 20%. This means that your one vote counts not only for yourself, but also for about 7 other people. Plus, with 14 candidates on the ballot, the difference between who gets into the run-off could be as little as 50 to 100 votes.
Tomorrow you have a rare chance to actually make a difference in local politics. I think you’ll agree that it’s time to get someone in office who isn’t in it for the “political power” or their resume. It’s time to elect someone who truly wants to help and who doesn’t just say it – but has been doing it.
Over the years, I have dedicated myself as a community advocate– eliminating LA’s red light cameras, leading the effort to reform the city’s abusive parking practices, helping to get our streets and sidewalks repaired, and helping to solve a decades-long water run-off problem here in our hillside communities.
I have accomplished all these things working for free to help my fellow Angelenos. That’s why the LA Weekly has called me, “LA’s Newest Folk Hero” and KABC radio host and Daily News columnist, Doug McIntyre has said, “We need an army of Jay Beebers”.
Running for City Council is a natural extension of what I have already been doing and because we need a VOICE and a CHAMPION at City Hall.
As our Councilman, I will be able to focus on solving even more problems facing our neighborhoods, such as fixing our failing infrastructure, curbing over-development, reforming the DWP, and alleviating our communityʼs worst traffic nightmares.
If you’ve already voted, thank you. If not, I would be honored to have your vote tomorrow. And if you have an absentee ballot that you haven’t yet returned, you can just take it to your polling place and exchange it for a poll ballot.
I look forward to continuing to serve our unique neighborhoods of Council District 4.
All the best,
