    LA Daily News - LA mayoral candidates left out of debate blast organizers

    A dozen candidates are on the ballot to run for mayor of Los Angeles, but only five are slated to appear at a May 1 debate airing on ABC7. Greiwe put the blame on Sonenshein, for steering the decision-making, saying that he said “is not telling you who to vote for — he’s making sure you don’t even hear from us in the first place.”

    Los Angeles Times - L.A. mayoral candidates demand to be included in Cal State L.A. debate

    On Tuesday, four candidates for L.A. mayor demanded to be included in a May 1 debate organized by Cal State Los Angeles and the League of Women Voters of Greater Los Angeles. Inviting more candidates to debate onstage could “force accountability,” said Craig Greiwe, a marketing executive who said he is running for mayor as a centrist, advocating for child-care vouchers and for addressing climate change with market incentives.

    Yo Venice - Mayoral Candidate Interview: Craig Greiwe – the Independent Outsider for Mayor of Los Angeles

    LA mayoral hopeful Craig Greiwe is a pragmatic, solutions-based private business executive who believes the issue of homelessness is being eradicated throughout the United States except for Los Angeles and that’s because the people running against him are the very individuals who created the problem in the first place! A former chief strategy officer of Rogers & Cowan/PMK, Greiwe has made a career out of turning around major FORTUNE 500 companies and he wants to apply that skill set to fixing a very dysfunctional place known as Los Angeles. A graduate of USC and Columbia Law school, Greiwe sees himself as the only man with a real plan. On the number issue of the race, the candidate praised the LA Alliance lawsuit settlement with the city a “significant step forward, but not going far enough.” “Homelessness is being eradicated virtually everywhere except LA. I’m the only candidate calling for federal intervention.”

    LA Downtown News - Craig Greiwe hopes to solve LA's homelessness crisis

    In a year when over 40,000 people experienced homelessness in the city of Los Angeles and 60,000 in the county, the 2022 mayoral election comes at a crucial time in the city’s history. LA mayoral candidate Craig Greiwe pledged to use his business-centric background to rebuild the city with a series of ambitious programs, without raising taxes and breaking the cycle of “broken leadership” in LA. Greiwe raised $100,000 for his campaign in the first month for his plan to address homelessness, housing affordability, corruption and post-pandemic economic recovery, “I have never wanted to run for office in my life, because I focused on my business career and on doing good work in my both my career and in my private life by serving on the boards of different nonprofits and creating movements that brought real change,” said Greiwe, the former chief strategy officer for Rogers & Cowan PMK. “Especially in the middle of the pandemic when I created programs that saved tens of thousands of small businesses for my clients, my goal was to make a better world through my work.” As a marketing executive and co-founder of the civic engagement nonprofit Rise Together, Greiwe was asked by many to run for mayor and become a “common ground” candidate. He brushed it aside because he wasn’t a career politician. “I’m only interested in being the mayor of LA,” Greiwe said. “As the only outsider in the race, I am not beholden to anyone except the people of this city. And it will be the first time in 80 years that we have a mayor in that position. We’ve only had a series of career politicians who have used that office as a steppingstone for whatever came next. I am only interested in being mayor and in fixing this city.”

    Los Angeles Blade - We can fix Los Angeles - the people can and will come together

    By Los Angeles Mayoral Candidate Craig Greiwe | I have been thinking a lot lately about what it means to run for office in America. You see, when I started running for Mayor of Los Angeles in late 2021, I had an idea about what it meant to serve my city. I had real, concrete plans; in fact, the only published plans of any candidate. I had experience in leadership, both in business and in nonprofits. I had a successful career and track record of bringing solutions to seemingly impossible and complex problems of all sizes. I had a full campaign team of experts. I had a message that resonated with people, and which still does: Knowing that the people who created our problems cannot be the people who solve them. Above all else, I had passion. The kind of fire-in-your-belly, true-believer passion that makes you wake up early and go to bed late believing that no matter how bad things seem in this city, they can and will be better. We can fix Los Angeles. The people of this city can and will come together to choose change based on common ground and common sense. I had all these things, and still do, proudly. But I did not have the experience of what we expect of people to become a public servant. The last four months, along with my life experience, have taught me that everything I read about, everything I knew from advising other candidates, everything I learned from building the fastest-growing grassroots movement in the city — all of it was informative, educational, redeeming, challenging, and impressive, and very much not enough. It has also taught me that I am ready to be the next Mayor of Los Angeles. I have the plans, the experience, the leadership, the support, and the passion. I have also realized that what we expect of people to become Mayor, or City Councilmember, or even Block Captain, may be what is tearing Los Angeles, and this country, apart. The way we hold our elections is not just part of the problem, it is the problem.

    The Daily Bruin - Los Angeles Mayoral Candidates Discuss Potential Solutions for Homelessness

    Many candidates favored reducing certain housing regulations to decrease costs and expedite construction, including Bass, de León and Feuer. Craig Greiwe, chief strategy and transformation officer at Rogers & Cowan PMK – an LA marketing agency – and mayoral candidate, said that such regulations are slowing important city action. “That’s why we have an affordability crisis. The city has made it impossible to build because politicians are simply interested in whatever office comes next,” Greiwe said.

    The Missing Conversation Podcast - LA Mayoral Candidate Craig Greiwe discusses Homelessness, Affordability, and Public Safety with Robert Strock

    The Missing Conversation explores the pressing issues in our world and the innovative solutions that support a greater chance of survival for our city, country, and planet. In this episode, on Psycho-Politics, Robert Strock is joined by LA Mayoral Candidate Craig Greiwe, who expands on his plans to help end homelessness, reduce affordability issues, and improve crime response in LA. Getting to the root of these problems is crucial to eradicating them. Instead of surface measures that act as bandaids, Craig takes us through his actual, transparent plans to achieve these goals. As he shares his background, one that’s starkly different from most other institutionalists in government, Craig underscores his experience with problem-solving and the importance of taking responsibility for your role in the world. The idea is to lead with empathy — something Craig understands from his own personal experiences with poverty and abandonment. He talks about the awareness of trying to move from frustration and anger towards understanding and ambition to change. It’s what helps him (and could help us) find common ground with others and meet them at their level.

    The Los Angeles Times - If a mayoral candidate screams in the woods, will anyone hear?

    [M]arketing executive Craig Greiwe is emblematic of that second tier of candidates: He has raised a not-insignificant sum of money and hired a veteran political advisor but remains largely outside the mainstream conversation. Greiwe castigated the organizers of the debate this week for not including him and was critical of The Times for omitting him from our poll. It’s a bit of a chicken-or-egg question: Are people like Greiwe not included in coverage and debates because they’re virtually unknown? Or are they virtually unknown because of “corruption and active censorship” that silences new ideas, as Greiwe charged in a recent Instagram video. Greiwe, who insists that he’s a viable candidate for the city’s top job, has hosted dozens of smaller in-person events with voters across the city. “People get to see each other and realize that they are not alone,” he said. “Their frustrations are shared. They also get to hear from other folks just like them, and make sure that I answered their questions.”
