He's definitely not independent. His campaigns have always been supported almost 100% by teachers unions and he has to parrot their agenda. He has and always will push for what is best for the teachers' unions, not what's best for kids. Also, all of the political figures endorsing him are also heavily supported by teachers unions. Garcetti is heavily influenced by the Teachers Unions, but past mayors of LA Villaraigosa and Riordan are not... and they endorse Nick Melvoin. See the link showing where Zimmer's funds come from. There is no way he's independent. All the other candidates funding comes in from many different supporters - they aren't beholden to any one group - Steve is.
