Jan Perry: Union Campaign Against Bernard Parks Is A "Tantrum"
Parks has far outraised Hogan-Rowles. She reported bringing in only $17,000 last year, and is not well known in the district.
But she has much greater independent support than Parks does. The union groups have put out half a dozen mailers and bought radio and TV time to introduce Hogan-Rowles to voters. The literature touts her as a small businesswoman who has helped entrepreneurs through her job as CEO of Community Financial Resource Center.
Though the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles has vowed to launch an independent campaign for Parks, so far only $615 of independent money has been spent on his behalf.
Lamar Advertising spent $500 for a billboard and the L.A. Clean Sweep committee spent $115.39 for a door hanger.
