Another City Hall union is now running ads on behalf of Wendy Greuel's campaign for L.A. mayor.
The LAPPL ad treads some familiar ground, touting Greuel's record of finding waste as city controller. Unlike earlier pro-Greuel spots, however, this one avoids claiming that Greuel has found $160 million in waste, fraud and abuse — a number that has become controversial.
The ad also talks about Greuel's record of enacting business tax reform as a council member. Her top rival, Eric Garcetti, also boasts about that, saying the two were “co-architects” of tax reform.
