Greuel's first TV spot harkens back to controller audits

wendy-greuel-spot-grab.jpgWendy Greuel's platform to run for mayor is that, as city controller, the audits by her office found $160 million "in waste and fraud." It's the theme of her first 30-second spot going on the air today. Watch below:



Here's the script:

Every part of LA deserves a better city government.


I’m Wendy Greuel, and as city controller, I found $160 million dollars in waste and fraud.

Your tax dollars, squandered.

As mayor, I can stop the waste because I know where it is.

And I’ll use the savings for job creation, better schools, and faster emergency response in every part of our city.

We need a mayor for all of LA.

So no one is left behind. And no one is forgotten.”

The spot drew a quick response from the Eric Garcetti campaign. "Wendy Greuel's only fact—is wrong. Her numbers don't add up."
