Former Congressional Candidate and now 2013 Mayoral Candidate Emanuel Pleitez.
Mayor Sam has confirmed that former San Gabriel Valley Congressional Candidate Emanuel Pleitez has filed papers for the 2013 Mayoral Campaign.
The Wilson High School and Stanford University Graduate will formally announce his intentions today according to his Facebook Page and from another source.
Pleitez who was an organizer for President Barack Obama's campaign team in 2008, was an upstart congressional candidate to replace Hilda Solis who became the head of the Department of Labor in 2009.
With the help of veteran Campaign Consultant Eric Hacopian, an army of eager young professionals volunteers, combined with with a grasp of the power of social media (especially its potential for fund raising), Pleitez made a respectable run and ensure that then State Senator Gil Cedillo did not become Congressman Gil Cedillo.
** Noontime Update: David Zahniser of the Times provides more background on the Pleitez Candidacy.
