an interview for L.A. Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa

Posted on

So I get an email from my manager last week about an interview for the L.A. census 2010 and an interview for the Mayor’s office and I don’t know how I feel about it, but I’m doing the interview this Friday. I’ve never ever been involved or done anything in regards to politics, so this is brand new to me, but I’ve done over a thousand interviews. I’m just buggin because I’ve just never been politically involved in anything. My 1st time voting ever was this past year in my entire life and that was to vote for Obama.(DAAAMMNNN, HE SHOWED HIS POLITICAL VIEWS!!! i.e. people say never discuss religion or politics and everything will be fine.  f.y.i STFU)

so anyways, this is the letter I got from the Mayors office:

Good morning,

I am producing an online campaign for the Mayors Office of Census 2010 called “LA Voices of the Census”.

These are 30 second to 1 minute videos of people from Los Angeles speaking to their friends about the importance of being counted in this coming Census.

A lot of money has been lost because of an undercount in 2000.

LA lost over 200 million in federal money that we desperately needed.

Ben is not only from Los Angeles, but he truly loves it and is always representing our city correctly.

Even to the point of having a beautiful California jewelry piece with a big diamond to symbolize LA.

If you go to our website, , you will see some of the people that have lent their voice for this campaign.

We will be putting the rest up soon. Here is a partial list:


Banda El Recodo

Forest & Kesha Whitaker

Ana Gabriel

Pepe Aguilar


Jimmy Smits

George Lopez

Efrain Ramirez

Shelia E

Herbie Hancock

Jordan Farmar

Magic Johnson

Pau Gasol

Wilmer Valderrama

Tommy Davidson

Chino XL

Demi Lovato

Rosario Dawson

Malik Yoba


Eva Longoria Parker
Sick Jacken

All of them have already recorded a small video helping get the word out to be counted.

We would really love for Ben Baller to be a part of this campaign because his presence online is massive and adding him to the people already on board would just help spread the word on how important this would be.

Please contact me and let me know if he is willing and if so when he might be available.

Or if you just want to talk to find out more information as well.

thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

So… what do y’all think?
