LA Mayoral candidate Emanuel Pleitez looks to increase profile

Emanuel Pleitez Profile

Mayoral candidate Emanuel Pleitez fist bumps with a Sabaq. Pleitez has focussed on canvassing poorer, Latino neighborhoods since his campaign started in July.

The conventional wisdom in Los Angeles is that Emanuel Pleitez’s campaign for mayor is going nowhere. If so, it’s definitely going nowhere fast. The 30-year-old former tech executive is spending his final days running for mayor performing a low-tech, high-speed publicity stunt designed to increase name recognition. KPCC's Grant Slater followed the hopeful mayor on the campaign trail.
