Straw media. Hey, y'all, welcome to another episode of genuinely Geg. We are here hanging. I have been smoking any to have you been inhaling? I have, but that's okay because I have someone who supports this. You found someone for me. I have supports this. I'm a good friend. Yeah, I do. She's running for office right now. And the coolest part for me, what was the coolest part? From me? Do you know where the coolest part was when we can you guess it? Could you guess it? I'm going to say that you guys both have a rot while. Yeah, she must be like a legit cool person if she has a rot weyler. But she's legit cool because we got to explore some of her other views and what she's looking to try to do. Right. Yeah, yeah, and it. And also, I think another thing that again caught my attention and wanted to bring her on was was the fact that, you know, she is a woman. There's not so many people and the council that our women and she is from, you know, Latin descent, and so just roll round. It awesome. I just girl so you were girl powering and powering it up. So for your Sake, because you brought her in. I hope she's a dope girl. I think she dude. You A fucking rot whiler, don't I know that? That they're right. There was like out of all our instagram like what? As soon as I saw that, I was right day. I had to jump in and say look, girlfriend, a lot of people make a lot of promises in the beginning of their campaigns when they're trying to, you know, run for office. They make a lot of promises and I think us as a people, as a society, we want to hear what they want to do. We want to see the changes, and she took us through that. Yeah, yeah, let's talk to dull say Basquez. You know her from shawls of sunset. You know she doesn't hold back. It's not about what women have to go through, it's about what any individual needs to go through to clean things up, to make things happen. This is genuinely gg. I don't say this is gg. I think you guys briefly met that that day at the La Mission. Nice to meet. Yeah, thanks for being here. We appreciate you being here so much and we're really really looking forward to asking you so many questions to get to know you more, so the whole world's can get to know a little bit more about you, because clearly anita had special things to say and I can't wait to learn more about you. Thank you. What is it entail exactly to run for office? I mean because I see on you know, on movies and you read on the news it's very expensive these campaign trails that you guys lead. So what does it look like for you, because you said you have a day job, so how does that look in a day in your life? Yeah, so a day in my life. So normally, you know, Monday through Friday, nine hundred and twenty five I am either in my office in downtown Los Angeles or in my Home Office. This sort of depending on who I'm meeting, and as sort of covid starts to let up, I am physically in the office more and more. I would say prior to running for office, that nine hundred and twenty five looked more like seven to seven. So I have you know when I say that my employers very much a part of this. It's the fact that, like I have to end my day at five o'clock, is at five hundred and one. I have to switch to campaign mode in order to raise money or direct my my team, whether that's my field team or my policy team. But I would love to talk to you more about the the monetary barriers to entry and running for office. You know there are I don't come from money. My Mom Cleans houses and my dad works in construction and I obviously, you know, have to pay for my own life. So having a job is necessary. But there are so many people who...

...don't have a job and and can do this full times. When we talk about fundraising, they have time to call people at nine o'clock in the morning or, you know, we thought we talked about a lot of folks who can go to protests in the middle of the day, right, whether you're protesting for really great causes like unions or healthcare or whatever, some of these things are at like ten o'clock in the morning in front of City Hall, and I'm like yeah, I gotta Work Right Right. Wow, it's hard. It's hard. Well, that's it. Will we'll definitely get into all that. But I mean, I guess the where you caught my attention was at the La Mission and and we were out there that same day doing some work for Thanksgiving and feeding the homeless, and that's something that, you know, Jesi has been really passionate about for I don't know how many years, like you've been thirteen years, thirteen years, and every year there's like a group of girls that we all want her to what do we here? Plus one because she got takes so on. They literally yeah, they like claim that that the the at next events, Wayne and be it's like, okay, okay, the next time you go, can I go past me please? I'm like that we could help every day. You don't have to wait for the event to help. You know, okay, but luckily I was picked to do it and so I was there and then and while her and Resa were doing the you know, serving the Turkey and the Gravy, me and you were plate runners. So I met you in line as a plate runner and and I think we was first. I don't know how we started talking, and then we started talking about like northwestern, and so you're northwestern alumni and I'm a big secret northwestern fan, of a wildcat fan, just because my older sister went to northwestern Undergrad medical school residency. That call my attention. We had instant connection there and then we went into help people pronounce your name, Dull Chay, like dult Chi Lee Chay, whatever. And and then we talked about Vasque has being your last name, and that's one of my favorite character from alien, wash, Alien. Do Do you ry? I do wantch aliens weaver. No, Vaskas was the she was like one of the other. She was like one of the other really tough, like strong military girls. That was like killing any sugurney weaver it. Yeah, yes, yeah, so, I don't know. Yeah. So I was like excited about that. And then you made a couple day us that you're running for, you know, council. So City Council, June seventh, two thousand and twenty two, destroy nine, the strict nine. Yeah, and and so I thought that was, you know, pretty awesome. And then we talked about how you're one of the only women. I think it was like out of the fifteen people, there's five. So wanted you to kind of three. Three. Oh Wow, there's fifteen council members, there are only three women in a city, you know, second largest city in the country, city that claims to be so progressive. There are only three women on city council and every campaign in every you know, voting system that you were trying to get elected. Is that the norm, that it's always such a low statistic of women, or does that happen to be just this time? So it's not about people running. So right now, like currently serving. Out of fifteen council members that are currently serving, only three our women. There are a ton of talented women that are running, some of us, including myself, challenging men who are currently in those positions. Some of them are open seats and, you know, only three have have one and have been sat as as council members. Okay, so, yeah, so that was something that really caught my attention, and also that you have you come from a Mexican descent, like you're from Mexico. Your parents migrated over. I think you were born there. You came with them and then your brother was born here. That's right, you've such a great memory. Oh my God. So yeah, so just if you can kind of like, I just want to know how it's been like being not just a woman in this you know, and this whole political run and you know, and also being un a minority and the fact that you're with your you know,...

...ethnicity. So if you can kind of elaborate and how it's been and the kind of the obstacles that you've had a face hosts for doing start. So just a little bit about me doing Sabaska is born in Mexico, born in a little coastal town on the Gulf of Mexico called Tampico. My parents brought me here when I was seven. My Dad was a dairy farmer back then. My mom was in nanny. I spent the next seven years undocumented, which was scarier as I got older, because I was always very smart and always wanted loved school. Didn't quite know what I was going to do for a college, but thankfully my parents fixed my papers and I was able to go to northwestern university on a full ride. I came to Los Angeles to run a nonprofit here, so I volunteer a lot, not only at the mission, but I focus a lot on entering young women as well. So right now, actually, my campaign team is full of young women that I've mentored before, one of them since she was fifteen years old. So it's really special to see women thrive and in general I've just always been such an amazing supporter of women thriving and women's causes, including reproductive rights and others. So running for city council is it's my first time doing it, definitely not something that I thought I would be doing, but I felt compelled to do it after seeing how our government's managed the pandemic, not just in terms of healthcare and outreach to letting know on black communities, but also in education. At Work Right now in education, and I see education in everything right it's not just about schools and curriculum. It's about safe streets, it's about clean and open parks, it's about transit that's on time, accessible and free. It's about teachers being able to live near places where they work. And in this process I had actually gone through candidate training. Shout out to emerge California. It's a phenomenal organization that trains women on how to run for office. I think want her that training and one of the things that stuck out the the most to me was sort of you know, how few women run, because when women run, you know women tend to win, but we still have nationally, only about twenty percent of elected positions are women. And Nationally, you know, to go one one step deeper nationally, let the knows, are about twenty percent of the population but only one percent of elected officials. So I've got sort of two things going against me. And the other thing that they said me was like women find it really hard to ask for money, which is true, and then when we ask for it, we ask for less and we receive less compared to men. Okay, so a man will just go after and be like hey, give me fivezero dollars. I will go to me like, Hey, do you have a hundred bucks? Yeah, and someone will give that Guy Fivezero dollars and out of the hundred that I asked you before, they'll give me fifty. It's definitely difficult being a woman, being a minority woman, any of that, in any position. To be quite honest, I think we've all sort of experienced that. We're middle EASTERNS, we've experienced that quite significantly as well. But holding on to the woman verse man thing, it's been done a lot of times. I'm not underminding you at all, because it's a reality. We're living it. I'm really lad so, but I don't think that's what you represent and I love the few things that I needle was telling me that you do represent it's not about what women have to go through, it's about what any individual needs to go through to clean things up, to make things happen,...

...to apply situations and to see a better good come from it, you know. So I would love what we can, you know, talk about those amazing things that you were recently telling me about. Yeah, I mean you're into the you know, to make the neighborhoods like say for a livel neighborhoods, public safety, which I wanted to get into. I'm going to go back to that one. Education, bridging the gaps, corruption in City Hall, which I really want to get into, like let's get into that. But I get into that or okay, then I want to get into and the transportation and small business assistance, which is great because, coming from a small business, they we have. But what I do is is, let's talk about what are you mean corruption in City Hall and how it are you like, is that something in your platform that you want to to help? So, going by to GG's point, and I really do appreciate you putting that out, because I think the way that I've been running my campaign is is not usually like what is wrong with my opponent, it's like what is the vision that we need for a better, thriving Los Angeles and particularly for this district? Because this district in Los Angeles, district nine, south central, sort of like south of downtown, around USC Expo Park area, it has the, you know, lowest average household income, it's the most Latino district in the city, it has the lowest educational attainment, sort of all the it's the youngest district in the city. To has sort of all the maladies. And when I think about my vision for this part of town, it's about like how do we make sure that kids are completing high school and going to college? How do we make sure that we have small businesses that are supported with investments that that, you know, are reasonable for them or that they even have access to capital? I have a buddy WHO's trying to get a brewery off the ground. Just needs tenzero dollars in the fact that a bank won't even loan him tenzero dollars for really what I think is a brilliant idea. Is a problem with this part of town. The fact that, like insurance, insurance is hired to be paid here because you have more, you know, like car, you know, petty stuff. You know, I want to fix all of that and I have a vision for a thriving district in that thriving region, which we really need right now, not just in this part of town but for Los Angeles broadly. We need better leadership. We need a strategic vision over the next ten, fifteen, twenty years. That I feel like it's been missing for a long time. We're going to take a quick break but when we come back, honestly, you can't pay for any better securities or want life that far shakes the house. Oh, I know girl. Oh I know girl. I've seen her angry and it's sometimes I think I was shaking for two days. What do you did say to me that day? Is because I, you know, with with gg and her you know, she's sitting here smoking. I'm getting a contact high and it is a big advocate for cannabis, just because, you know, it's helped her in many ways and especially with her are a and and just for pain and what what is your take on that, because I know that you said that that is part of your in your campaign, and so what? What can you elaborate on that a little bit more? So I think you guys have that connection there. So yeah, absolutely, and I think what we talked about in particular, and you know, I think the city has a lot to do with how we are implementing cannabis law and cannabis on growth within the city. So what I pointed out to was in the mayor's budget this year, in the line under revenues, particularly cannabis licensing revenues, he had increased it from last year to this year three,...

...three hundred percent, and I said, you know, if you're expecting that big of an increase in licenses, that means that you're going to start giving out licenses again. How do we make sure that who you are giving those licenses to our equitable for black and Latino small business owners that want to make sure that they are able to reap the benefits from a from from from cannabis, which has been from from a drug that has been that has led to their criminalization since the start of time, right. So, so how do we make sure that moving forward, those that have been targeted and have lost family members, livelihood, who have been incarcerated, make sure that they are reaping some of the benefits of this new industry? Yeah, I think part of that too, is my strong desire to see a public bank of Los Angeles happen. As a lot of this business is still on a cash only basis. How do we make sure that we have money from from tax dollars to be reinvesting in the community and that business owners feel safe, have a place to deposit? If it's going to continue on a cash basis, have a place to deposit, but also, you know, how do we bring it up into sort of a financial digital age as well? I think those are very Tu diifferent things financially speaking, and doing sort of what's right for medicinal or whatever other purposes. I think it's great, but it's sort of wishful thinking to think that anything is going to change as far as taxes on cannabis are, as far as where the money goes from cannabis, because as long as we're held at a federal level when it comes to can Nabus, it's not federally approved, it's not federally legal, then it goes by state and then when it goes by state, it goes by county and then it just becomes so much and so it's just we gotta fall out of that federal category. We are we you know, it's just it's just weird. It makes everybody better. I mean, she knows, she knows I was crazy before we eat. It's just say it's so crazier she's it's really helped her in many ways. It's helps everyone. Yeah, it's like no one. No one gets a DUI, usually from we do. You wise have gone down, because people who are high or too scared to drive, and if they drive, they're driving five miles per hour thinking that the cops are right behind them. People who are drunk don't think that anything's wrong and they slam on the gas and just fly. I'm just saying. There's politics there to that, but there we could talk about that. That's all another time. That's whole another car, you know. But did you I think that yes, at a federal level we should be legalizing cannabis and I think that you need more elected officials at every level, not just at the federal level, agreed to pushing for federal legislation. So you you know, this is not des Moines City Council. This is Los Angeles City Council. No offense to des Moine if anyone's listening from the mine. But what this is? This this is the second largest city in the country with the probably more powerful city council than New York, because New York has like fifty of them, and to have people that are are friendly to this and are willing to do the work to make sure that at every level we are pushing forward access equity and and inclusion and and, you know, sort of like an everyone benefits from this mentality to it. I think it's really important. So corruption in City Hall was something that was one of the issues that you are what, Kittie, elaborate a little bit more that, because I that just kind of called my tension. So what is what what you know? Without being too negative,...

...you know, out of our fifteen council members over the last three years, three of them have been indicted on federal corruption charges, and I think that that is, you know, sort of indicative of a like how powerful this position is, that, you know, people feel the need to be bribing their elected officials, but like to also just how how susceptible people are and how we need to choose better leaders that, you know, don't lose sight of the goal and make sure that they're representing people. And part of it is we have so many elected officials who have been in their positions of power for a very, very long time. One example is the guy that I'm challenging has been in office in some sort of elected off as for thirty years and honestly, like I'm not accusing him of corruption, though he was named in an FBI search warrant for another AC council member. You know, the FBI still working on whatever it is they're working on. But but don't say, let me ask you this. I'm sorry, let me ask you this, I'll say because I'm going to play the bad cop here. Yeah, just respect that. I'm not trying to come for you. I just want to get answers out there so people can understand, because this is going through my mind and if it's going through my mind, I'm going to assume it's going through other people's minds as well. Yes, so here you are. You're in this position, as so many other politicians have been in before you that have led to higher rankings, and they have all sat here and sworn so similar as you're swearing, that there's corruption and there their wholesome people, and in those moments they honestly are, and then they turn corrupt so I'm sure. I'm sure. Here you are because, and I'm going to play bad cop, you're a woman and you are scorn woman because you see what your family had to go through to get you here, right, as a minority, as not papered person, right, so you have these emotional aspects will makes us think that when you get to your position and you elevate higher rankings and whatnot, that you don't take advantage of this system in the opposite way, right? No, I think you're absolutely right, and the best thing that I can do is obviously advocate for myself OAF and and have people that you know can attest to the fact that I'm a decent human being. No, but, but I think, I think there's a lot to be said to that. I carry myself in the best way that I know how to, because I know that my Mama taught me well. I know that. You know I was raised in the church, though I don't do not attend frequently anymore, but you know, I was always taught to, you know, give it forwards, take care of people, to make sure that you're benefiting the greatest amount of people. You know, I've worked for a nonprofit. I work in education. And I think what's hard with public trust right now is exactly that, that there have been these bad actors that are spoiling it for everyone else. And you know, it's really hard to just go up to someone and say hey, please believe in me, I am not right. Not that it's all about actions. It's all about actions. I think that's the thing that yeah, everyone wants to see actions, you know, just not like the photo ops that I feel like a lot of people do in politics and even even the La Mission. Like I said, I have people in line. Sometimes I just want to show up to that event because there's so much Paparazzi and and, like I say, you can help any day of the year. Have you know. You know, so you want to join me. So that's what I'm saying. And it's okay, because if that Paparazzie picture even makes one person out there motivated to do it, I'm all for for it. You know, I like you know, okay, but there's people doing it specifically for clout as opposed to...

...a good reason, you know, doing it for the applause and not for the cause. Yeah, you know, and so it is hard. It is hard. It's like a needle in a Hay stock to pick through and find the good ones out there, and we can only go based off of what you show us. A great which I mean Kala. She has a rottweiler, right, is it a full? I mean, do you have a rottweiler? I have a body. Oh my goodness, I have a roddy and I just got another puppy body as well. So that makes her a very special person in you. So I think where at your reach. You fully. I have a girl. How old is she? She's almost too oh my God, she's a puppy. She full rot. I just bought her her wisdom panels. So we're going to find I'm going to do a tick tock about it. We're going to find out if she's full roddy. But she's just the most gorgeous animal. Good, so beautiful. What's her name? I have a right here. See here, people really cute. She's so talked a little bit. So she looks like a little mixed on the side of her profile. Is She little mixed? Do you think? Maybe like a German shepherd in there house for tail? No, she's so cute. Well, she hurt it. She doesn't do that? Yeah, her, she's like, yeah, she does. It was really hard for me to find a breeder to that did not cut before they sell, because a lot of them they literally use nail clippers, like as soon as the thing's born, they'll just clip it right there because it's it's nearly yeah, because it's like a noodle size. When they're all, my God, it's just sudding. It's disgusting. That's so it's for me a long time to find a breeder that had this type of rottweiler that was against the cutting of tails, was against caging, was against all that. I mean, my rot was Jojo, came from a Cornfield, so it couldn't Petsylvania. So she wouldn't pee on the streets because it was like she'd never seen streets before because she's used to like a ranch cornfield out in like Pennsylvania. So happens US MED Western people. We and and I got another puppy, I got another rot Wi. There's only honestly, this is a lot to do with you as well, because La's under like some sort of purge attack and and and I'm anti gun and I was just, Oh my gosh, you just find my mind. That's how I just oh my God, I posted something. There's or I'm on instagram. I was just I just pulled another thing up on instagram and yeah, yeah, I got another dog. So, because Josho right now is a hundred and fifteen pounds and the boy that's coming is supposed to reach a hundred and fifty. So I don't need any gun. She doesn't need any guys. Actually, I am the same way. Well, that's what our next question is this. What's your take on take on guns and gun control and all that that stuff? When so I lived in a Condo for a long time and you know, we had security seven but we bought a house and when we bought a house my husband said, do you want to buy a gun? Like, absolutely not, we're going to get a rot. While I hundred percent it's absolutely not. You can't. You honestly, you can't pay for any better security than or rot by there. You can't. You can't it there from what I've heard, what I've read, you know just even you know she's got it. She's not a hundred and fifteen, she's about seventy five pounds. She's ad the Ront of the letter, but that bark shakes the house. Oh, I know girl. Oh, I know, girl, hearts the house. Oh Yeah, Jasha, her dogs, Josh she's really sweet. She's really sweet to listen. I see. I've seen her angry and something I think I was shaking for two days because seeing that type of a rage come from such a powerful creature that you almost felt like you might not have been able to control, because it's like they're their main thing is to protect you. Yeah, some guy turned a corner at night. I was literally walking her at night. Some Guy, he comes out, he turned a corner but before...

...he turned the corner he saw me and he's wearing baseball cap and it's Covid, so he's wearing his mask and he realized who I was. So he turned back and goes, Oh my God, and Joshaw was I really it was. She started kicking like a bison. I went back the next day there, I swear to God, it was this deep in the in the grass holes. She was like she he was like, Oh, I'm my go dude, that's scary. I had never seen that. She's okay, so sweet and it was like a Lyon. I think it sounded like a line I'm sorry if I just shot the tears off. But going back to the political you know, talk about everything. As soon as you said Rot wheiler. Yeah, it's good, bad. Yeah, back you know the interview. Yeah, so public safety, rottweiler's guns. That's the I'm bringing everything back full circle. What is your outlook on guns and gun control? Is that something that that you bring into your your you know, issues and you running and stuff. Is You know, what's your take on that? I have not put it as part of my platform, but I don't know. Personally, like we should not meet guns, we should not have guns. We should definitely not have automatic guns that are able to shoot large rounds of ammunition. You know, I we look around and during covid school shooting stopped because kids were in at school. And now that they're back in school, you saw what happened in Michigan and it just absolutely breaks my heart that, you know, all of our like the officials, can do is offer thoughts and prayers and not meaningful action on gun reform and how to get guns off of our streets. And now we have so many different ways to access guns and print guns and have ghost guns and like literally order parts on Amazon and we have no other developed society in this country where this happens. Yeah, and we have, we have been decent setized to the fact that, yes, this is just a way of life and we send our kids to school understanding that this is this is something that could happen, and our kids are growing up doing active shooter drills. I know. Oh my God, I can't. I can't. When my niece and nephew had to go through the IT drills, it was like breaking my heart when my niece was explaining it to my mic I don't understand. How is this a thing? Wait, I wasn't. I have to say a little. Can you guys get me up to speed on this way teach you. There's a couple methods that you're supposed to do based on what's happening with the shooter, and you're supposed to take those methods. This last shooting that just took place in the school, one of the boys, they're calling him a hero. He did one of the methods and he saved his whole classroom. Wow, yeah, it's amazing, but it's amazing what it's sad. It's a yeah, like, why are we at a point where when? Why? was well, drop drol. Do you remember dare or Dare Abuse Resistance Education, and they were just teaching us how to say no to a joint. Yeah, you know what I mean. You would see the joint passing and you're supposed to say no. That was like the whole logo. That was like a big deal. Yeah, a big deal. I flip. Someone offered you a join at school man. That was like hello, yeah, and look what it is now. Right, that's way. What was? Stop dropping roll. Why was that? Like? That was for fire, so stop fire. That was fire. Stop dropping roll. You're supposed to roll so the fire can't. That is I yeah. And then we had then, back in our day, Tornado. Stop Drop and take cover for earth quake break. I said, that's not the method anymore. It's The pyramid. You are supposed to go into a pyramid effect, so the ceiling hits the highest thing first and drops down and you are completely safe on a pyramid. A group of engineers and architects and our fighters put that together about twenty five years ago. But in ours was go under a desk during tornadoes in the Midwest. You you actually die faster if you under the desk or the doorway, for for earthquake, but I think for Tornado. I don't know, Tornado, you better go into the ground. Girl, like well, there over new...

...years. Oh yeah, so those are our things. And now wow, like do the gun thing, hide from guns and whatever. It's so crazy. How Times between glad that we're I'm glad. Yeah, with me, I mean I'm yeah, that Geez, we're just everyone was a lot wiler. Didn't. Yeah, we're going to take a quick break, but when we come back, before anyone missed the moment and thought I was lying, I took my phone out and I had to put it on Instagram for the world to see as well. You know why? Because she thought it's a normal thing to do, because I'm absolutely there was a joy in her hair. What I typically do is how we end the interview, is we go into a game called forgive me, I have sinned, and I ask you questions and they're not bad or funic. It's very light and fluffy and fun stuff. I get dark a little bit sometimes. But Are you? Are you ready for the game or Eddie? Okay, and first thank you so much for being here. Okay, so nervous, so with and usually I go over these with her because she has to like I want her to make sure whether the KOSHURE and stuff. So this, this is a solace to her to answer them too. Now this is just for you. You're on a spot, girl. Yeah, so, since Christmas is coming up, I thought we'll start with that one. Oh, it has to be innocent. If Christmas.
