I went to school in the CPT long before it became the home of gangsta rap. Recently, there was an incident of Latino gangs attempting to take over the city that once boasted more than 75% AA/Black population.
Anyway, many cities in L.A. County need help and while the immigration issue is definitely a hot topic for those trying to make a living, can a former burger pitchman make a difference? Courtesy of Yahoo News.
While it is impressive that this young man managed to stay out of trouble despite his popularity (raise your hand if you tried to get in on the 1970s commercial campaign to star with him), not sure if his recent work history reflects someone that can help a sometimes turbulent city. His LinkedIn Summary reads like this:
WRITER, PRODUCER, DIRECTOR. CREATIVE MARKETING, LIVE EVENT PROMOTIONS,
VIDEO PRODUCTION, PHOTOGRAPHY, HOST, TV/RADIO PERSONALITY, SPEAKER
Specialties: LIVE EVENT PROMOTIONS, SAG, AFTRA
Anyway, I wish all well as he may be able to use his contacts to bring some fresh revenue to the city. Sorry, couldn't find the commercial with the song.
