First it was efforts to 'save the Los Feliz Library', then disgruntled veterans demanding a ribbon on the Hollywood Sign. Now he's leading the on-going broad-based community fight to save Barnsdall Art Park. Tomas O'Grady - candidate for CD 4 - will lead them all to victory.
What is the real story here? Who is this Tomas O'Grady person?
Is he a:
Unwitting Universal/NBC stalking horse with a hair-trigger temper?
Self-proclaimed green phoney-baloney who made his money back east in high-density real estate?
Or ... the one true leader behind all of these community actions?
Voters will have to decide for themselves come March.
John Thomas's presser follows. The one good bet in all of this is that the LA Times will cover it because it is John Thomas.
