LOS ANGELES, CA - Today Kevin James issued the following statement regarding the Super PAC supporting Wendy Greuel for L.A. Mayor as reported in the L.A. Times:

“In September 2012, the DWP raised your utility rates by 11.1%. The DWP union is now raising big political money to support Wendy Greuel for Mayor. They’ve even hired Mayor Villaraigosa’s top political advisors to run it proving that Wendy Greuel is the ultimate insider’s choice. Angelenos can expect more of the same if Wendy Greuel is elected,” said mayoral candidate Kevin James.

The Super PAC is made up of wealthy entertainment elites, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 18, which represents Department of Water and Power (DWP) employees, and last but not least Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s campaign consultants Ace Smith and Sean Clegg.
