BLAH-BLAH-BLAH, MARIO GUERRA RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION IN DOWNEY, YADDA-YADDA-YADDA

COUNCILMEMBER MARIO GUERRA

Downey’s chatterboxing city councilman, Mario Guerra, says he wants another term. Of course, Guerra doesn’t put it so succinctly as that. This guy’s got a mouth, and he likes to shoot it off.

Guerra’s the guy who told me last Nov. 23 that Tesla Motors had selected Downey as the site of its manufacturing plant, and that there would be an official announcement right after Thanksgiving. Still waiting.

Guess I should have talked to my buddy Steve Lowery before going with that one. Guerra is a deacon at Lowery’s former parish of St. Raymond’s, where Lowery says he once witnessed a priest shush Guerra during Mass. ’Course, Steve’s a bit of a chatterbox, too.

Anyway, Guerra wants a second term, Sen. Alan Lowenthal and Supervisor Don Knabe are among those who want him to have it, and Eric Pierce of The Downey Patriot has the story and a short but fascinating profile of this political motormouth.
