NORTH HOLLYWOOD–Following a string of negative pieces of mail sent out by Christine Essel–ads that alleged Krekorian is anti-semitic, misogynist and hateful–outraged community leaders responded in full force.
Tamar Galatzan, former City Council candidate and former Associate Counsel for the Anti-Defamation League, issued a stirring condemnation of Essel’s piece. On Saturday, Rep. Brad Sherman, Assemblyman Mike Feuer and Los Angeles City Council candidate Paul Koretz will appear in the campaign office to speak out against the mailer.
Their response follows an Essel-approved mailer that accused Krekorian of sexism and anti-semitism while displaying, in one piece, Holocaust imagery in the form of barbed wire that surrounded a picture of City Hall and the word “Intolerance.”
In her call, Galatzan said, in part: “These disgusting and outlandish political stunts demonstrate that Christine Essel is even willing to demean the memory of one of the most tragic events in world history just to win a political seat.” The call was sent to 2600 homes, all completed before 5 p.m.
On Saturday, Dec. 5, Sherman, Feuer and Koretz will issue a condemnation of Essel’s maierl during a campaign event from noon – 4 p.m. at the campaign office, 13063 Victory Blvd., North Hollywood.
