STEVE MOZENA’S WIT, HIS GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR:
President John F. Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan were both known for their great sense of humor and keen wit.
Did you know Steve Mozena has a great sense of humor?
Although STEVE MOZENA understands there are serious issues that confront the city on a day to day basis, he also understands that humor helps break the ice and is disarming in tense situations.
In his first public appearance of the mayoral campaign, at a mayoral forum at the Grand in front of the Long Beach Real Estate Council, with a crowd of nearly 500 people, STEVE MOZENA drew the largest laughter of any of the candidates with his opening line, "I'd like to thank everyone for attending my first fundraiser" The crowd roared with laughter.
Another example is STEVE MOZENA's "Get Buck Naked" banner, making all the Long Beach Council “Buck Naked,” asking them to show on their city council office websites and city websites how they spend their bucks. The banner has black censor bars with funny lines like "Show us your financial package". In the TV news story on channels 2 and 9 about the banner, a Long Beach resident said the banner is hilarious.
STEVE MOZENA showed theatrical prop humor when he brought two empty glass jars to a forum and left one open and one closed on the table in front of him. At the end of the forum he said: “You probably are wondering why these jars are here? The opened one caught all the hot air these career politicians, teachers, and lawyers are spewing, so I'll cap it off.” Then he opened the other one, blew into it and said “I'm a breath of fresh air, a refreshing change, I'll work on behalf of all citizens not just a selected few. It won't be politics as usual” The audience
Time and time again at forums to one-to-one conversations, STEVE MOZENA has shown his humor.
11-year-old Arista, Steve's daughter, just said to STEVE MOZENA, "Daddy, you make people laugh every day!"
STEVE MOZENA warmly grinned at his daughter and thanked her, for he knows this is a great legacy to pass along to his daughter.
Everyone knows that love is a universal language.
STEVE MOZENA knows laughter is a universal language as well.
After all, STEVE MOZENA would close some the forums by saying, “Doesn't Mayor Mozena have a nice sound to it?" The crowd chuckled.
Vote Steve Mozena for Mayor of Long Beach on April 8th and not only enjoy the refreshing change but Steve's humor as well!
