KPCC adds Pleitez to mayoral debate

KPCC's press release last week for its mayoral debate coming up on Wednesday night talked about the "four major candidates for mayor" who would be taking part. I guess some discussions ensued and, like with most of the latter-stage debates, KPCC will add Emanuel Pleitez to the head table. Here's how the release reads now:

89.3 KPCC/Southern California Public Radio will host a live debate among five major candidates for mayor of Los Angeles at KPCC’s Crawford Family Forum on Wednesday, February 6th at 7:00 PM PST.

AirTalk host Larry Mantle will moderate the debate, which will be open to the public, broadcast live on 89.3 KPCC, and video streamed and archived at The program will also be rebroadcast on Thursday, February 7th at 12:00 noon PST.

This year voters in Los Angeles will select a new mayor for the first time since 2005. Five of the major candidates vying to succeed Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will participate in this live debate, including LA City Council Members Eric Garcetti and Jan Perry, City Controller Wendy Greuel, attorney and radio host Kevin James and former technology company executive Emanuel Pleitez.

The candidates will discuss major issues, including the city’s budget, crime and public safety, transportation, public health and energy policy, as well as questions about potholes, lighted billboards and a possible NFL team for Los Angeles.

It's free but space is limited.
