Below is an excerpt from the original article, which appeared on Examiner.com on December 14, 2012:
"On December 15, 2012 the first televised debate of this year’s Los Angeles mayoral race will take place. However, candidate Emanuel Pleitez was informed shortly after qualifying for the ballot that his participation would be prohibited.
“I am running to ensure all voices in our city are heard, and as it stands there is currently no candidate on that stage representing the most undeserved and underrepresented communities in Los Angeles. They've been shortsighted and irresponsible with the City’s future and budget. Rather than allow us to voice our concerns and propose new solutions, they’d rather shut us out,” says Pleitez."
