YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

I am an American!

 

I am an American! I am not a republican, democrat, right wing, left wing, conservative, liberal, progressive, socialist, neoconservative, atheist, American Indian, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, redneck, hillbilly, white, black, tan, etc. what have you. I am an American! 
If you agree with me I think that’s great. If you do not agree with me I don’t care. 
I am your neighbor. I am the one who stands with you against harm, the one who helps you when you are in need, who laughs when you fall, the one who helps you up. 
Your suffering is my suffering, your joy mine too. I am your friend. I am an American!

How will YJ Draiman affect the campaign issues for Los Angeles Mayor in 2017

YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

Dear Fellow Los Angelinos

Thank you for taking a few moments to learn more about my ideas for building a new Los Angeles.
I appreciate your interest in my campaign and hope my jobs plan will provide you with a better understanding of the type of Mayor I hope to be – one focused on transparency and putting Los Angelinos back to work.

Los Angeles faces one of the most challenging times in our city’s history.
Because of the unfriendly business environment, along with some of the highest tax rates in the nation, families and businesses are being forced to make unthinkable trade-offs, including living the city they love. But I am optimistic about
Los Angeles future.

I am running for Mayor because I believe everything is still possible in
Los Angeles. That is why as a Mayor that makes LA attractive to business and will create jobs, will be my priority. It is the only way we are going to clean up the mess in Los Angeles. I have a unique skill set and the detailed plan to get Los Angeles going again.

I have started businesses from the ground up and within a short time revenues exceeded $60 million a year. I have been involved in rehabilitation of whole neighborhoods; I have built a 5 star hotel and implemented energy efficiency for over 20 years. I operated a chain of electronics stores.

I think
Los Angeles needs a little bit more of a business-like attitude. We have to be honest about our problems, and face them by offering grown-up solutions and put an end to the partisan bickering and hand-wringing that is business as usual.

I can effectively balance the interests of developers, big business and those who are well-situated and I am more concerned about the interests of everyday citizens."

If you do not know and admit that there is a problem, you cannot fix it. Our Pension liability is growing and if its solvency is not addressed, it will put LA into bankruptcy, our infrastructure is deteriorating, our water source is diminished, our utility rates and taxes are climbing. This must not only stop, but it must be reversed.

I am running for Mayor to reinvigorate
Los Angeles economic potential – it will take time and the effort of all the people of Los Angeles. We shall overcome these economic hardships if we work together as a unified force.

If you have any suggestions on how we can move
Los Angeles forward, please contact our campaign. We will listen. We want this campaign to be special, one that addresses your concerns and speaks to your hopes for what a new Los Angeles can be.

Together, we can put
Los Angeles back to work and make our City great again and call it the city that works.

YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

PS
Draiman is determined to bring a new approach to
Los Angeles. One that demands we help struggling businesses and attract new businesses that create jobs, increase revenues and lowers taxes. A city government that provides better efficiency and expedited better services. I propose a city government that makes it a priority and commits itself to improving our schools. A city that is committed to improve public transportation and revive our industrial base.

Draiman has a plan to make
Los Angeles economic vitality flourish.
Make Los Angeles Competitive again, raise the standard of living, grow the tax base and help put an end to the yearly budget problems in
Los Angeles.

Y.J. Draiman. - Candidate for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017
Dear Los Angelinos;

I am running for Mayor to get Los Angeles back to the thriving and robust city it should be. The present administration DOES NOT serve the best interest of the people of Los Angeles.
 

During this time of great urgency, I will focus every day on bringing innovative solutions to the economic crisis that is holding our city back -- solutions such as retaining and bringing businesses to the city, fiscal responsibility which will reduce the financial burden on taxpayers; transparency, make Los Angeles the city that works, protect core city services; and make our neighborhoods stronger, safer, and attractive to jobs and businesses.

It is time to restore honesty, integrity, accountability and transparency in government.  It is time to put our differences aside, and put an end to special interests which only serve the few.  It is time for City Hall to serve the best interests of all the people of this once great city.

We all know these tough economic conditions are affecting our city greatly.  I believe in a coordinated effort and I believe in the people of this great city.  I plan on working together with the people of this city.  As a cohesive force, we will transform our city into the most dynamic place in the nation.

My vision for Los Angeles is to make LA the World Capital of Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency & Water Conservation.

Today’s economic crisis is of utmost concern for all Americans. In these hard economic times, we must unify as a cohesive force to address the need for more jobs, better housing, a healthcare system which works for all; and most importantly, to stop the deterioration of the educational system which is depriving our children of the necessary tools for their, and our future.

Now, I am asking for your help to transform all of Los Angeles.  Please sign up for the latest updates, connect with me on Facebook and Twitter, and ask any question or concern and I will respond.

I look forward to working with all the people to get Los Angeles back to the status it deserves.

Sincerely,

YJ Draiman

Los Angeles - A throbing Metropolis


The Los Angeles we know and love is full of rich diversity and limitless opportunity, and it is not a thing of the past. The message of my campaign is about working together restoring trust and integrity, and to rebuild the City of Los Angeles we love by restoring a robust economy, creating jobs, fiscal responsibility and ending failed government policies, and this is the overwhelmingly positive message of our message to the people of Los Angeles. As a valued supporter of my campaign, I wanted to make sure that you had the opportunity to see my platform.
 
This statement and goal is about inspiring confidence in the people of Los Angeles that with our collective values, faith, and strength we can overcome the incredible adversity we face as a city in these hard economic times.
 
YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

YJ Draiman for Mayor - proposes a Los Angeles City government for the people by the people, it is long overdue to listen and address the concerns of the people of Los Angeles. Implement fiscal responsibility; restore trust and integrity in our government. This starts from the Mayor on down to the rest of government officials.
We must stop wasting revenues and resources, implement efficiency and productivity. These are hard economic times; in order for us to survive, we must take immediate action and implement the necessary actions to lessen the impact.
This starts at the top – “Lead by example”, leadership starts the pattern and the rest will follow.




Education will rebuild Los Angeles economic sustainability
 
I have three words to say to you. EDUCATION... EDUCATION... EDUCATION... You want to get ahead in life, you must have education. You want to compete in today’s economy you must have education. You want to provide for you family you must have education.

 
 
Education will rebuild Los Angeles economic sustainability
 
Education, vocational/trade schools and energy efficiency will be the spearhead to our economic recovery and economic sustainability.
Education will lead to economic progress, bring about innovation and technology, trade schools will help people earn a living, Energy efficiency and Renewable energy will create jobs, save money and resources and make LA energy independent. We all know no society can survive without water and energy. Water & energy conservation used effectively will save the city of LA billions of dollars every year.
Those saved dollars will be used to build and enhance LA’s economic vitality. My profession & expertise for the past 20 years has been in implementing Energy & utility efficiency.
As mayor one of my goals is to utilize my expertise and implement Energy & utility efficiency for the city of LA, while rebuilding our educational system. I will set-up an independent citizen oversight committee on government with members replaced every 2 years.
 
 
YJ Draiman for Mayor of LA 2017



Asks Energy & Utility Expert YJ Draiman
  
 “The choice we face in Los Angeles and as a nation is simple: Do we want the clean energy and conservation technologies of tomorrow to be invented in America by American innovators, made by American workers and sold around the world, or do we want to concede those jobs to our competitors? Asks Energy & Utility Expert YJ Draiman. “We can and must compete for those jobs.” In Los Angeles, we have the technology, the climate, the resources and the manpower. Let us proceed with conviction.
