Martinez accepts one apology, wonders about another

Jon Regardie reports in the Downtown News on the candidate forum in Eagle Rock last night. He says that challenger Rudy Martinez accepted an apology from Councilman Jose Huizar, but...
“I accepted his apology,” he said, “Before we got started I said, ‘Jose listen, let’s keep this a clean campaign, let’s talk about the issues, and let’s be friends.’ And he agreed and I gave him a hug.”

However, Martinez noted that something is still missing.


“The sad part is I did not get an apology from Mr. Trujillio, where the email started from.”
The candidates, reports Regardie, spent the bulk of the evening talking about Eagle Rock. Martinez himself apologized also, for ripping out a tree in front of his restaurant without permission from the City, according to an account of the same forum in the LA Times.
