New politics blog *

Well, let's call it partly politics and partly law enforcement, with some union advocacy for seasoning. It's the new blog of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, which posts today regarding Mayor Villaraigosa's decision not to run for statewide office.

We don’t always see eye-to-eye with the Los Angeles Times Editorial Board, but this week we wholeheartedly agree with a Times Editorial applauding Mayor Villaraigosa’s decision to stick with Los Angeles and forego a run for governor.
