March 8th Election
Los Angeles City Council: 

The following are the Republican Candidates running for Los Angeles City Council:


CD#6:  James "Jamie" Cordaro, David Barron

CD#10: Andrew Kim

CD#12: Armineh Chelebian, Mitchell Englander, Kelly Lord and Navraj Singh.

My recommendation for those offices where there is not a Republican running - vote for anyone other than the incumbent.  I suggest looking at the Clean Sweep LA website for their recommendations:


Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees:

The following are the Republican Candidates running for the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees:


Seat #1   Jozef Essavi

Seat #3   Mark Isler (Mark Isler is not on the ballot so you have to write him in on your ballot form).

Seat #5    Lydia Gutierrez, Manny Aldana, Pamela Bolin and Mark Lee

Seat #7   Erick Aguirre


For candidates running in other local races, you can find out who the Republicans are by going to the County Party Website:



There are two people who have the expertise and knowledge and who I trust to understand the complex provisions of the Los Angeles City Charter and its proposed amendments on the current ballot.  One of them is Kevin James and the other is Ron Kaye.  Since they differ I am going to give you their recommendations here:


Ron Kaye's Recommendations:


Vote NO on all propositions.


Kevin James' Recommendations:



G - Yes


H -  Yes


I - Yes


J - Yes


L - NO


M - NO


N - Yes


O - NO


P - Yes


Q - Yes

Policy on Endorsement of Candidates  
Candidate Endorsements

The policy of SFVRC regarding candidate endorsements, which is governed by our ByLaws, is as follows.  We can only endorse candidates who are registered Republicans.  Candidates who are not registered Republicans will not be able to be endorsed by SFVRC.  Further, our ByLaws prevent us from endorsing any candidate in a primary race where there is more than one Republican running in that race.

Republicans running unopposed in a primary race, or running in a general election or run-off election can apply for endorsement at any of our general meetings.

We will send out announcements of events for Republican candidates which will be taking place in the San Fernando Valley.

Republican Business Directory  
Do Business with fellow Republicans

In these tough economic times we have decided to help each other out economically.

We are preparing a business roster of Republicans for SFVRC members.  This will be merged with a county-wide business directory that is being prepared by LA County Republican Clubs.

We are encouraging all of our members to patronize the businesses of our fellow members and Republicans.  If you need goods and services, why not have them provided by your fellow Republicans?

For those of you who would like to have your business listed in our business directory, please send an email to:

Provide your name, the name and street address of your business, your business phone number, your business web site address, and your email address.  Also provide a description of the services you provide or the type of goods you sell.

We would like to publish this directory by March, so please send in your information.  Send an email with the above information.

We expect to have another great meeting of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club on Tuesday, March 1st.   

I hope to see you there.
