Dr. Jay Shah to run
LA County Supervisor 4th District
He works tirelessly to keep the NRI
Long Beach California, April 12, 2008
Dr. Jay Shah, a physician, medical rehab / pain specialist,
lived in La County for 33 years to run against Knabe, who is seeking
a fourth term in representing the 4th District, which includes Long
Beach, Lakewood, Bellflower, Cerritos, Signal Hill, Downey and Norwalk.
Dr. Jay Shah told our senior representative that he
always like to o perform selfless service, without any thought of
reward or personal. We, NRIs have to make a concerted effort to
seek opportunities to perform Seva. One has to focus ones mind on
this duty and ones human function so that the opportunity of this
life are not wasted. He has also concerned about some NRIs who are
running associations to make money only. They are working as brokers
and not for NRI community. We are divided-subdivided and now we
are very week. There are 200 groups.
Mentioning about to
run LA County Supervisor 4th District, against Knabe,
Dr. Jay Shah said:
- We do not need have Royalty in the USA. People will control
their own life and destiny. No more power for vested interest
groups and lobbyist who rob treasury and rights of people
- He will not seek second term and allow other to supervisor.
He will not take any salary as supervisor. He wanted to serve
poor or needy and give to community his services freely.
- Twelve years is too much for your failure to respect rights
of people. Your attitude of control is absurd as people put you
in position to serve them only.
He said that his motto in life is to serve human and stand for
truth and justice for all. All five supervisors have failed seriously
in their duty to citizens as they concentrate more power by attention
only to lobbyist- evil doers - vested interest and family and friends.
They have allowed robbing of our rights, resources, and money by
neglecting their duties of equality and fairness, opposite to the
oath taken by them. They gave promises but never acted on them.
They serve only too those who help them to get more power and people
are treated like enemies or animals and the quality of our citizens
life is none. They have fragmented, destroyed, divided the units
of the family and perpetuated misery to masses. They are the enemies
of the people. They are our real in-house terrorist in the USA.
We need to defeat them by awareness of the people so all supervisors
are voted out or recalled. Please tell them loudly that county residents
are not in a coma, nor idiots, or stupid as they think. In the USA
we have a democracy, let people run their own affairs.
No fiscal responsibility by supervisors have created havoc in employees
and all services. Mainly health and social welfare, family units,
our security and safety is at greatest risk. Drugs, crime, poor
environment and abuse of power all contribute to the misery of millions.
My election bid to remove incompetent and corrupt unethical county
supervisor Mr. Don Knabe is essential for truth and accountability
Employees must not be worried for retaliation like employed MD
if he or she tells truth and its for improving quality medical care
Public officials must investigate illegal acts of administration
too instead of cover up or silencing employees or discrediting them.
A code of ethics and behavior must be followed by elected officials
. Here all five supervisor have failed miserably and repeatedly
for decades. All five are in power for 20 to 30 years.
