Below is an excerpt from staff writer Leanne Suter of ABC 7 news, which was published on March 3, 2013. In it, she covers Emanuel Pleitez' run across Los Angeles and his critique on the current City Hall establishment.
"Former technology executive Emanuel Pleitez hit the ground running. He traveled 19 miles through the city as part of his 100-mile citywide run and bike trek.
"The folks in City Hall - at least the folks I'm running against - have been there for over 30 years combined. They have led u s to highest unemployment rate in the country, the lowest high school graduation rate in the country and we're on the brink of bankruptcy," Pleitez said."
