A few weeks ago, prior to the primary election, the Los Feliz Ledger asked me that if I were not running, who would I vote for. I answered, Carolyn Ramsay and here is why.
During our debates, Carolyn was refreshingly honest about what was actually possible. It seemed to me, that she always answered thoughtfully and truthfully rather than simply saying whatever needed to be said to get elected. To me, that speaks to her character.
Our volunteers got to know her folks out on the campaign trail and they were always a class act. They were never negative, always encouraging and many times complimentary. I can only imagine that this tone was set by the candidate.
Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of having dinner with Carolyn at Little Doms in Los Feliz. She is smart, passionate, and methodical and above all I think a person who keeps her word. She shared with me her commitment, to protecting our neighborhoods from obscene developments, to being frugal with our public dollars and to help me and others realize our dream of a more sustainable Los Angeles.
I have always been super proud that over 75% of our donations came from zip codes that were in Council District 4. Our funding came from our neighborhoods. Carolyn Ramsay’s campaign had the same kind of local support. 72% of her donations came from Council District 4 compared to only 34% for her competitor, David Ryu. I worry about outside money.
I ask you to join me in supporting Carolyn Ramsay for City Council District 4.
