YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

Dear Los Angelenos;
My name is YJ Draiman and I want to be your Mayor. 
The time has come to put aside our differences and think of all of us collectively as Angelinos willing to unify and move forward in an effort to improve L.A.  Remember, Individually, we are but one drop; Together, we can become an ocean!”

If you want to improve your lives and the lives of your fellow residents of Los Angeles, you must be willing to change the current administration which is a political machine for the present and previous elected officials; a political machine which will fight any attempts to change it; and will fight to make sure no outsiders gain entrance into this politically exclusive club.

Ask yourselves what major change or project that advances the prosperity and vitality of this city has been accomplished in the past 4 years? The answer is a resounding NONE.

For years the administration of the City of Los Angeles has failed the people of Los Angeles. It is time to elect an administration from the working people of Los Angeles, the non-politicians, the ones who owe their allegiance to the people of Los Angeles and to no one else. It is time to put into office a Mayor and administration willing to tell the people the way it is without any sugar coating or hidden agendas.

The City of LA has been going downhill for at least the past 15 years and more. The budget and revenues do not cover the costs of running the city. The past political-machine administrations promised to turn L.A. around and back onto a path of fiscal responsibility. Yet, they failed and continue to fail in keeping those promises. Their promises are as hollow, as the rust is thick on their political machines.

We must operate the city with responsible financial management and complete transparency. We must promote new businesses; fix the infrastructure, and our transportation system. Most importantly, we MUST improve our educational system and in so doing, give our children and grand-children the opportunity to succeed which they so richly deserve.

I ask you to give me the chance to be your Mayor and put into place an administration truly representing the best interests of ALL the citizens of Los Angeles, not just those who are part of and support a political machine. It is time, for your sake and the sake of our city, to elect one of us and push the ineffective, rusted political machine to the curb.

In this spirit of change I am promoting, I gladly reach my hand out to all of the candidates to form a cohesive force willing to work together to improve your lives, and to improve the city of Los Angeles with a relentless, UNIFIED effort to achieve this goal. 

Thank You!
YJ Draiman – For Mayor of Los Angeles 2017


  1. I dream of a world where the truth is what shapes people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.


    Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean!

    This is not a political rant. This is not an argument for or against your politics. I have my political positions and I vote my conscience. I don't apologize for that and I don't ask you to apologize for yours if they differ from mine. But it stops there. We must agree on one thing if there is anything left of our nation that can be united. We must agree that every human being has the right to liberty, equal justice under the law, and the pursuit of their own happiness as long as it doesn't infringe on others.

    When we limit those American promises to those who fit a certain mold, we've lost our way.

    I'll concede that I can't predict the future. I'll also admit that neither side has all the solutions to the complex problems we face as a divided nation -- a nation of 350 million in a world of 7.4 billion. So, we can argue about which government program will be better, which international agreement we should honor or what is the fairest tax system. But we cannot argue about basic human rights -- the inherent worth and dignity of every human being. When we marginalize any segment of our society, we compromise everyone. Each one of us has some attribute that could eventually be considered "not American enough." When any government consolidates power, and decides which of those attributes is not acceptable, it is a short step to fascism. When that government operates with the financial backing of corporate power and money, that short step has been taken and we've arrived.
