YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017


Dear Los Angelenos;

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.

I am now asking for your help to transform all of Los Angeles. Please view my website (http://yjdraimanformayor.org) and 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.
