Los Angeles, CA – The latest campaign reports filed with the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission show community leader and attorney Grace Yoo, candidate for LA City Council District 10, reporting more cash on hand than her opponent, L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.
Yoo has $270,918. Her opponent has $260,468. Including matching funds, Yoo received $191,882.95 for the period of July 1 through September 19.
Her opponent Mark Ridley-Thomas received a total of only $36,000 more for the same period. Recent polling shows voters in LA City Council District 10 overwhelmingly favor Grace Yoo over long-time politician Mark Ridley-Thomas:
Grace Yoo – 56.8%
Mark Ridley-Thomas – 43.2%
Ridley-Thomas campaign insiders have stated that this race is a “…very tough run-off election, tougher than most people anticipated.” Contrary to what many predicted, entrenched politician Ridley-Thomas, was unable to win in the primary election with 56% of the district voting against him. Over the last few months, at least two other polls have been conducted in Council District 10 by Ridley-Thomas’ campaign or his supporters, yet none of the results have been made public.
When internal polling data shows a candidate is losing, the campaign rarely makes that information public.
The general election is November 3rd.
It will be great to have Grace Yoo on city council, because she wants to be there and do the job as opposed to MRT who is always just looking for a vacancy to fill until a higher paying job comes up.
Sho u right, Go Grace you know what time it is
I met and spent quality time with them both in my CD10 community. I was very impressed with Grace Yoo. She’s the change we need. She doesn’t carry any L. A. political baggage (yet) and will be better than MRT. Also, if he gets investigated, he has a lot of skeletons and will have to go anyway. It’s better to start fresh with an intelligent woman. He also looks to be in poor health.
Mark Ridley Thomas work speaks for it self. He has worked tirelessly to improve things for this city. far more than any. Other supervisors, take a look at the surrounding area of Martin l King hospital area he has improve on a lot of things for this city. job well done supervisor is Thomas we appreciate your hard work it isn’t easy to accomplish what you have done. If you can’t speak favorably keep quiet and stop acting like the idiot you are.
Mark “da nigga” Ridley-Thomas has got to go. Years ago when he got into politics, regular guy. now he’s all chunky and round
It’s time to turn the ugly pages of corruption during Wesson and Mark’s gerrymandering of District 10. If we don’t reject gerrymandering in LA, we have no moral standing to reject gerrymandering of Blacks in the deep South. We have to reject evil outright.
“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”
– Matthew 7:12
For years, i have personally watched Mark Ridley Thomas battle for improvements for the homeless, state-funded jobs for Blacks that are consistently denied employment because of the color of their skin, prison reform keeping prisoners local and much more but he is only one voice on a Board of Supervisors that will rush to protect the goats at the state fair before they support equal justice and opportunities for Blacks. If you dont know his and his son’s stands, its because you haven’t attended enough meetings to see what they have done and/or tried to do for Blacks. MLT was fighting with Karen Bass when there was almost no one else with a voice for Blacks. I know bc I heard it. I am a personal witness. Go to some meetings and see who is voting certain stands down and rally against them!
It time for change…I hope Grace Yoo, will not turn out to be just like the present leadership we’re trying to get rid of.
Hope that if she’s elected she will focus all citizens that are less fortunate regardless to race or creed.
Majority of the working poor, homeless and veterans are good honest people just needing a voice among the ones who think they what’s best without hearing their stories; each individual struggling to survive this cruel world should be dealt with on his/her merits not as a group band together.
Everything under MRT leadership has failed, let’s just start with the homeless crisis and COVID-19; all they have done is thrown bad money after bad money. No real solution, because they keep hiring people who have no clue or compassion for human beings because it does not effect them directly.
It’s time to stop lining your pockets and do what the people elected you to do base on your lies during campaigning.
You all should be charged with failing the citizens, MRT you and your son are a total disgrace.
Go sit down somewhere….enough is enough!
