Mitch Englander Interview appears at site with Englander ads
As we noted last August, his personal background, which he paints as fairly tragic, is a large part of his patter. He more or less admits that the purpose of Neighborhood Councils is for the City to shirk its role in community services: "the cost is a drop in the bucket compared to the return." He cites fighting Las Lomas, fighting against "eighteen lobbying firms." He says he didn't trust the City Attorney's office (Delgadillo) at the time.
He talks again about his sister's asthma attack, and her passing away in his arms. He likes hospitals. He thinks in terms of "adding beds."
He's proud of creating an enterprise zone in his district. He has closed some "community care" facilities: "They're not for the community and they don't care." "I'm talking about sober living homes that aren't offering sober living." He's closed one of them in CD 12.
Via Giga Granada Hills, a site that has accepted advertising for Mitch Englander. Englander banners appear at the bottom of every post. [UPDATE: And there's a big Brad Smith banner at the top of the site featuring the former candidate too.]
