Note on the Upcoming LA County Board of Supervisors District Five Candidate Debate

Mark your Political Calendars as the Candidates seeking to replace out-going Los Angeles County District Five Board of Supervisor Mike Antonovich, gather for a supposed "Green Dialog/Debate" ......., and surely some pointed commentary on a certain Candidate's "Police Officer (naught)" failed Ballot Designation.
The Liberal League of Conservation Voters-sponsored Debate.
** Blogger's Note: As the Leftward lurch of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors pauses as the Campaigns to replace termed-out Officeholders Don Knabe and Michael Antonovich play out, the candidates seeking to replace the District Five (and State Senate Candidate) Conservative will gather in Pasadena next Wednesday to debate the issues. The (Liberal) League of Conservation Voters-sponsored Dialog, should be green-laden with questions dealing with the recent Porter Ranch Gas Leak and others. But a recent court ruling against current "CD 12 Councilmember" Mitch Englander in his failed attempt to brand himself as a "Police Officer", is surely to get some play as witness in the comical "Police Officer Englander"/Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife comparison below. In bloggin hindsight, a fictitious union of an "Ambitious Councilmember" and make-believe "Mayberry Deputy Sheriff", resulting in a Political Branding of "Councilmember/Thespian Deputy Sherriff Candidate" Mitchell Fifelander ........, may have been found more authentic in court----Scott Johnson.

HOT Brief on the "Broken Deal Cedillo Political Machine" for Monday

The Cracks in the Political Foundation of now CD 1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo;s Community Coalition, continue to widen as 2013 CD 1 Third Place Candidate (and Cedillo's Runoff Supporter) Jesse Rojas, pulls 2017 Campaign Papers to challenge the Second Term-seeking Officeholder. 
One Bill Gil's recent proclivities for reneging on promises has earned him the new moniker "Broken Deal Cedillo".
Highland Park Business Owner Jesse Rojas endorsing Cedillo during 2013 CD 1 Runoff.
** Blogger's Note: In an ideal Political World, the challenge to a City Council Incumbent, especially when the Officeholder is the renowned/infamous Gil "One Bill" Cedillo, would be Front Page-garnering Breaking News.
But in a 21st Century "Ciudad de Los Angeles", the Act of Pulling 2017 Campaign Papers by now Councilman Cedillo former supporter Jesse Rojas, becomes a "bloggin HOT Monday Topic in chronicling a growing CD 1 Backlash against the career politico, now known as "Broken Deal Cedillo".
We bloggin rewind to a "2013 Better Yesterday", when a diverse community coalition help the then nationally-recognized "One Bill (Driver Licenses for Illegals) Gil" narrowly defeat challenger, former CD 1 City Councilman Ed Reyes Chief of Staff Jose Gardea by a triple-digit margin.
A key endorsement in the Cedillo Victory over Gardea, was provided by Third Place Candidate Jesse Rojas, who's block of support surely played an important part in Cedillo succeeding the much-disliked Reyes.
Yet, three years-removed from endorsing the current Officeholder, Rojas pending challenge is another example of a growing backlash by former 2013 supporters from all neighborhoods within CD 1.
Rojas joins Pico Union Neighborhood Council Activist Miguel Amaya in a growing list of "Grass Roots Davids" seeking to unseat the Union-back Political Goliath .........., and the speculation is rampant on who else may join in.
Flying Pigeon Bicycle Shop Owner Josef Bray-Ali, who has been a front person espousing opposition to Councilman Cedillo's Figueroa Transit Plan and Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council President Monica Alcarez, a vocal critic of Cedillo (and BIG supporter of CD 14 Councilman Huizar) are other prominent names mentioned as potential 2017 Candidates.

Remembering the Passing of Michael "Mayor Sam" Higby September 29, 1964 - April 15, 2015

Please join us in a Bloggin Moment of Reflection on this First Anniversary of the Passing of Michael "Mayor Sam" Higby.
Michael sharing his Fifty B-day with Family and Friends.
** Blogger's Note: As the cleansing (and healing) winds of a new Spring abate momentarily, this is the bloggin appointed time to reflect on the Passing, one year ago today, of Michael "Mayor Sam" Higby. One year later ........ and the numbness in keyboarding my thoughts on a "Person of Character" who introduced this writer to the "Wonders of Spollcheck" is still profound. From above, Michael would surely not want this First Anniversary of his "Calling Home" in joining with his Mother Judy, to become a "Godzilla El Nino Downpour" of teary revisiting on a Life of Character that Michael espoused and lived daily during our Bloggin Mayor's time among us. But instead, focus on continuing the cyber crusade of bearing bloggin witness on the issues of the day, in the spirit of empowering Openness and Transparency. Since Michael's Passing, we are still working through the protocols in ensuring that his Cyber Creation will continue on (and grow) in being the "Click of Record" in musing the truth .........., and giving voice to those who exemplify the Character that our bloggin colleague granted opportunity to, in being part of the Mayor Sam Family. In the weeks ahead, we will be making announcements regarding our future cyber endeavors to continue on in Michael's vision which includes growing our bloggin Family of Writers and Audience. But paramount in ensuring the continuation of the Mayor Sam Blog, is empowering and mentoring the "Next Generation of Mini Mayors (we know of one already as I keyboard these thoughts)".  Thus, as the healing winds recommence, we bid our beloved Friend Michael and loving Mom Judy well in a world where we will all someday reunite again (at the Joselitos Franchise above) .........., and continue on below (as a "Tear of Thanks" runs its course through the "Watershed of Appreciation")----Scott Johnson. 
The Voice of Mayor Sam.

A Personal Note .................

Our Thoughts and Prayers on this Wednesday are with longtime Mayor Sam Reader and Supporter Robert Guevara, who's loving wife Patricia, passed away after a sudden/unexpected health matter on April 2. 
** Blogger's Note: Please pardon us as we take a temporary time out from our normal bloggin, sardonic musings to note the sad passing of Eagle Rock Activist Robert Guevara's loving wife Patricia.after a short, unexpected illness. Many in the Neighborhood Council Community of Activists, will surely note Robert's regular attendance at the monthly Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Coalition (LANCC) Meetings and his steadfast commitment to Open and Transparent Governess. Robert is, and has been a longtime Mayor Sam supporter, sharing his opinions via the comment section (in addition to extensive conversations at various times). But most important, Robert was blessed with a loving Soul Mate, who's wit and humor this writer will remember from meeting her during the Medical Marijuana-influenced, contentious 2012 Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council Elections, Our Thoughts and Prayers are with Robert and his Family during this time of Profound Loss----Scott Johnson.  
Patricia and Robert Guevara.
From Robert Guevara's Facebook Page:
It is with much sadness that our family shares the notice of the passing of my wife, Patricia Guevara. She left us on Saturday, April 2, 2016, surrounded family and friends, following a sudden and unexpected health matter that had caused her hospitalization.
Among the things about Patricia that is most remembered by all is her spirit that was evidenced by her smile and amicable nature. She enjoyed working with people, with many friendships gained over her life, that included a good amount of easy laughter as a part of her personal and professional life. A devoted wife, mother and friend, we will gather to honor her on Wednesday.
Services will be held on Wednesday, April 13, 2016, at St. Dominic Church, 2002 Merton Ave. in Eagle Rock (L.A. 90041) at 2 pm with a rosary, followed by a mass. Reception in the parish hall will follow

As the Los Angeles City Council honors Dodgers Living Icon Vin Scully, CD 15 City Councilman Joe Buscaino (and Father Matteo) share a QUALITY moment with the always gracious and humble Voice of the Boys in Blue.
CD 15 City Councilman Joe Buscaino and Father Matteo (in glasses) share a moment with Los Angeles Dodgers Living Icon Vin Scully. 
** Blogger's Note: Please pardon the absence of bloggin content as we give witness to another Opening Day of Dodgers Baseball. Students of local Sports History will SURELY prep themselves for what will be the last Opening Day Broadcast featuring the half-century plus some years, Voice of the Dodgers Vin Scully. As we near the time for Scully's last Opening Greeting to start another season within Chavez Ravine, we want to commend the Los Angeles City Council (with Scully's blessing) for formally moving forward in honoring the Hall of Fame Broadcaster, with the naming of "Vin Scully Avenue".  It was fitting to take note from yesterday's "Vin Scully Avenue Festivities", a "Moment of Family" involving CD 15 City Councilman Joe Buscaino and Father Matteo as they shared in Special Moment with one of Los Angeles Greatest Living Icons. For decades, Scully brought families ..........., and a community together in chronicling the Glory (and objectively noting the pratfalls) of the Boys in Blue. Thus, as we near the opening pitch ............, let enjoy our Civic Treasure Vin Scully, from where ever you may be----Scott Johnson

Mayor Sam Exclusive: Say Hey!! Is Kevin James Pondering a CD 12 Campaign?

A recent Poll in the 39th Assembly District sought out Voter's opinion on the favorable rating of 39th AD Assembly Candidate Raul Bocanegra ............., and City of Los Angeles Board of Public Works President Kevin James, building on speculation of a possible, "James for CD 12 Campaign".
Mayor Eric Garcetti to Kevin James: "Regarding that 39th AD Poll, should I say Very Favorable or Favorable ........, to you running for CD 12?"
Oh the love of bloggin speculation!!

As the sun rises on the latest incarnation of Monday, we focus our cyber attention on speculation regarding a former Talk Show Host, turned paid Political Appointee, with aspirations for Elective Office (allegedly).

In the last couple of weeks, the chatter has increased of a possible Campaign for City Council by former Radio Talk Show Host, now Mayor Eric Garcetti-appointed Board of Public Works President Kevin James ........,, but not in CD 5 (James current home Council District).

According to multiple sources, James is strongly considering establishing Domicile in CD 12, if the current "Councilmember/Police Officer Candidate" for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Mitch Englander, is victorious in his Campaign to replace out-going Supervisor (and current State Senate Candidate) Michael Antonovich.

The Western San Fernando Valley Council District was a stronghold of support for James during his Third Place Campaign for Mayor in 2013 ..........., and with James Endorsement, was a vital voting enclave that enable, now Mayor Garcetti to beat Wendy Greuel in the 2013 Mayoral Runoff.

But since James populist outsider, reformist Mayoral Campaign of 2013, the perception of many local activists of the now Board of Public Work President, is best exampled by the comments of former LA Daily News Editor and Civic Activist Ron Kaye in a LA Times Missive regarding James

"Kevin has joined the system," said Ron Kaye, former editor of the Los Angeles Daily News. "It's distressing to see someone who knows better buying into the idea that we have to protect the system from reform.".

Yet, the now-supposed City Hall Insider, has been "front and center" in his Board of Public Works Presidential capacity, during the on-going Porter Ranch Gas Leak Crisis, which may pay political dividends (or not) in a speculative CD 12 Campaign.

Its also apparent from a recent telephone poll in the 39th Assembly District, that the political clout of James is also on the mind of a certain political entity, as potential voters were asked to grade the likes of 39th AD Challenger Raul Bocanegra ......., and James (who endorsed Bocanegra's fellow Northeast San Fernando Valley Democratic Machine Member CD 6 City Councilwoman Nury Martinez for Election as pictured below).

Kevin James Endorsement Letter for CD 6 City Councilwoman Nury Martinez.

In ending this bloggin exercise in speculation may come to naught especially if a centain "Council Member/Police Officer Candidate" for the Board of Supervisors, is not victorious ........... but hey, if Councilmember Mitch becomes Supervisor Englander, then the discussion continues.

COMMUNITY ALERT!! "Son of Fabian (Nunez)" to be Freed from Prison

Thanks to a friendly favor from a disgraced, former "Kennedy Republican Governor", the thug, "Son of Fabian (Nunez)" is to be freed from State Prison ............, while a grieving (Santos) Family endures a Life Sentence of Sorrow and Anger, inflicted upon them via Crony Politics. 
CORRECTION!! Esteban Nunezs soon to be Freed after serving Seven (instead of 16) Years, thanks to Arnold.
Justice commuted ........., and the Family of Luis Santos Life Sentence of Sorrow continues.

The son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez whose conviction in the death of a college student was commuted by Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon be a free man. The parents of victim Luis Santos, who was stabbed to death in a 2008 fight on the San Diego State University campus involving Esteban Núñez and others, said this week that they have been notified of his impending release.The pair spoke Thursday at a victim’s rights rally in the state capital where they told CBS Sacramento it would happen within a week. Nunez pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for his part in the brawl and was sentenced in 2010 to 16 years in prison. But the following year, then-Governor Schwarzenegger commuted the sentence to just seven years saying that Nunez, whose father was a political ally, had no prior criminal record and that the sentence was excessive. When asked if his ruling had anything to do with his relationship with Núñez , Schwarzenegger was later quoted as saying “Well, hello! I mean, of course you help a friend.”
Our Prayers to the Santos Family.

HOT Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Scene for Monday

Longtime CD 10 City Councilman Herb Wesson's Chief Deputy (and alleged Bagman) Michael Bae, has vacated his underling position with the Cit Clowncil Central Committee Strongman, sparking speculation on the reasons for his departure. 
Chief Deputy Michael Bae (on the right in photo) next to his now, former Boss.
** Blogger's Note: As the first Monday of April 2016 dawns over Koreatown, many longtime activists will surely be conversing, regarding the departure of CD 10 City Clowncil Central Committee Strongman Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson's Chief Deputy Michael Bae. During the contentious 2012 Redistricting Commission Hearing in Koreatown, Bai was the focus of allegations involving "Strong-armed Contributions" by activists, as exampled in the video comments below by Jimmy Chai. As a side note, the lawsuit against the 2012 Redistricting Commission's redrawing of council district boundaries, is still working its way through the Appeal Process.  
Activist Jimmy Chai speaking regarding the "conduct" of now former CD 10 Chief Deputy Staffer Michael Bae.

** Krystee Clark elected President of the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council (STNC).
Krystee Clark.
With a tremendous turnout that almost double the previous STNC Election's tally of votes, former CD 7 City Council Candidate Krystee Clark, garnered the top number of votes (by a slim margin) to become the next President of the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council. The high turnout for this latest installment of the STNC Elections, can be credited to a vibrant Social Media Dialog via the Facebook Pages of the "The Foothills, Observed", "The Fabulous Foothills Fringe" ........, and the "CD 7 Open Letter". But we would be remiss in not mentioning outgoing CD 7 City Councilman Felipe Fuente's role in motivating turnout, via his disrespect of the STNC ..... and the Greater, United S-T Community.

Noting the Passing of former CD 11 City Councilman Bill Rosendahl at 70

Former Cable Public Access Television Host, turned Selfless Progressive CD 11 City Councillman Bill Rosendahl, succumbs to four year battle with cancer at the Age of 70. 
The Whody Who Venice Duo of Bil Rosendahl and David "Zuma Dogg" Saltzberg.
** Blogger's Note: A day of solemn refection has surely descended on 200 Spring Street, as the news of the Passing of former CD 11 City Councilman Bill Rosendahl at the Age of 70, becomes public. Rosendahl had fought a roller coaster battle with cancer since 2012, before passing away this morning in the company of friends and family, as noted by the LA Times.

Rosendahl died early Wednesday morning at his home in Mar Vista, surrounded by friends and family, after a four-year battle with cancer, according to a statement by David Graham-Caso, communications director for City Councilman Mike BoninRosendahl was diagnosed in 2012 with cancer of the ureter, the tube that connects the kidney to the bladder. The disease went into remission in 2013, but it reappeared in 2014. His loved ones were told by doctors in January that Rosendahl could pass away "any day,” Graham-Caso said, so for the last three months, they have been visiting his home, holding something of “an amazing living wake." Rosendahl is survived by his longtime partner, book publisher Hedi El Kholti.

A tireless, selfless Progressive, Rosendahl was a sincere persona who in the middle of his battle with cancer, still placed paramount the concerns of those who he could help, above self. Our bloggin memory of Councilman Rosendahl will include his befriending of our former Mayor Sam Blogger David "Zuma Dogg" Saltzberg, as exampled in the photo above.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rosendahl Family and Friends as Angelinos join in remembering a Selfless Man of Character.

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday

With a Judicially-exonerated, former CD2/7 City Councilman Richard "Zorro Marxist" AlarCON, free to campaign as a Congressional Challenger against embattled Congressman Tony Cardenas, longtime South LA Soulvine Columnist Betty Pleasant muses about potential "Brown Black Inequality", involving the Voter Fraud Convictions (and dismissal) of State Senator Rodrick Wright and AlarCON. 
 Hahahaha Betty!! I'm exonerated ........., and Rod is still convicted.
Longtime Soulvine Columnist Betty Pleasant.
** Blogger's Note: A light news morning at 200 Spring Street (with the possible exception of Sidewalk Vote, update below), grants us cyber space to catch up on recent musings via the keyboards of Longtime South LA Soulvine Columnist Betty Pleasant and Downtown News Editor and "Reigning Scribe of Wit" Jon Regardie respectively AFTERNOON UPDATE: The City Clowncil Central Committee approves plan to pass on the cost of future Sidewalk Repairs to Property Owners ----Scott Johnson.

** Within the "Space of Being" of longtime South LA Soulvine Columnist Betty Pleasant, every action, event, convictions of corrupt Politicos ........., and their Judicial Exoneration, is viewed through a racial prism as exampled below.

What is the difference between Richard Alarcón and Rod Wright? Alarcon is Hispanic and he’s been vindicated. Wright is Black and he hasn’t. I asked Wright: what are you going to do? He said his appeal was filed with the Second District Court of Appeals last spring and he said he and his attorney are waiting for oral arguments to be scheduled. In light of Alarcón’s acquittal, that district attorney thing we have issued a statement to the effect that her office is “reviewing the court’s opinion and deciding on other options.”

In Betty's opinion ........, Exonerating Corrupt Black Politicos Matters.

 2017 Mayoral Candidate Matthew Schwartz via the Downtown News.
** Downtown News Editor and Scribe of Wit Jon Regardie does a Public Service in enlightening Angelinos on the background of Mayoral Candidate Upstart Matthew Schwartz .........., and some details excerpted below. 

In a nutshell, here’s what you need to know about Schwartz: He’s thoughtful, intelligent and running out of a true desire to help a city that sometimes feels like it’s melting into an economically ravaged, homelessness-plagued sludge. He’s no gadfly and the campaign for this married father of three is serious. He genuinely appears to care far more about the state of Los Angeles than the personal power the mayor’s office affords. At the same time, Schwartz seems shockingly out of his league, with a platform and a race strategy that are as wobbly as a plate of Clifton’s Jell-O. Granted his candidacy is in its infancy, but more than anything he seems to be banking on riding a populist swell against politics as usual. He repeatedly criticized Garcetti and cited Los Angeles’ myriad problems and weaknesses, but was unable to articulate what he personally has done that qualifies him to run a city of 4 million people.

In layman's terms, its about being a candidate speed bump to slow Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee's Sacramento ambitions.

The Newly-Engaged "Antonio and Patricia Villargovea" Do Easter Day of Service on Skid Row

 In a setting reminiscent of past Governance via Photo Ops, by a certain Former Failure Mayor, the Newly-Engaged Duo of Antonio and Patricia Villargovea made their First Public Appearance during an Easter Day of Service on Skid Row.  
Antonio and Patricia Villargovea happily serving the masses.
** Blogger's Note: The Coming Together in Matrimony Tour of Antonio and Patricia Villargovea made its Public Choreographed Debut on Skid Row during an Easter Day of Service. Surely, the first impressions of the soon to be Mrs. Antonio Villargovea, is that she looks quite comfortable playing the image-enhancing partner in the latest political incarnation of City Terrace Native Tony Villar. In comparison to the former Mrs. Corina Villaraigosa, one could make the argument that the pending Mrs. Patricia Villargovea, is more at ease in a public setting with the self-absorbed Politico. Plus, in momentarily channeling past Antonio Villaraigosa's Campaign Consultant/Choreographer "Parque" Skelton,, the new union of Antonio and Patricia Villargovea, is an attractive political offering, especially to the low information voter, who is not well-verse with the past Former Assembly Speaker and Failure Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's moral (and political) failings. But rest assure as the upcoming 2018 Campaign to replace Governor Jerry "Moonbeam II" Brown commences, California voters will get a refresher education on the soon-to-be Antonio Villargovea's past political (and personal) life----Scott Johnson in CD 14.

Hola Familia!! Do You have a Spare Five, Ten or Twenty Spot for the Nury in CD 6 Campaign?

As the FBI/Federal Grand Jury continue their investigation of the Campaign Practices involving the imploding, Northeast San Fernando Valley Political Machine, the LA Times continues its reporting on the alleged "200 $5, $10 or $20 Donations for ($65,360 in) Matching Fund Scheme" via the 2015 Nury Martinez for CD 6 City Council Campaign.   
Nury thought the Feds said she wasn't a "Person of Interest (allegedly)".
** Blogger's Note: Hola and great post Easter Day to all within our Cyber Familia, as many benefit today from the scheduling of the City of Los Angeles Observance of Cesar Chavez Day. Its safe to say that today's observance of the noted anti-Illegal Immigrant Farm Work Organizer, could not have come at a better time for CD 6 City Councilwoman Nury Martinez and STAFF, who's past "Volunteer Efforts"in the 2015 CD 6 Campaign, to solicit In District, Small Donations (for Public, Campaign Matching Funds), is continuing to garner "Formal FBI/Federal Grand Jury Scrutiny). As LA Times David Zahniser reports in the latest installment on his coverage of Mrs. Gerry Guzman's Fundraising Controversy, family members of the CD 6 Officeholder's Lower Lever Staff, were generous with their spare Five, Ten and Twenty Dollar Bills ..........., that netted $65,360 in Public Matching Funds.

Seven weeks before L.A.'s 2015 municipal election, political aide Caesar Huerta was on the hunt for campaign donations. His boss, City Councilwoman Nury Martinez, needed contributions from 200 of her constituents to make her campaign eligible for up to $100,000 in taxpayer funds. Huerta, a field deputy, turned to aunts, uncles, cousins and others in his immediate circle, asking for as little as $5, according to several members of his extended family. Since then, Huerta and at least eight of his relatives have been questioned by FBI agents, called to appear before a federal grand jury, or both, family members told The Times.

For those of us CD 14 Natives, staffers roles in re-election campaigns, comes as an afterthought, considering that the current Princeton Graduate Officeholder initiates policy directives based upon the loyalty to him, of Special Interests and Constituents. But then unlike CD 14, Councilwoman Martinez does not have a CLARTS Amenities Fund, to supplement Staffer salaries. Thus, their loyalty can only be ensured to a ambiguous, legal tipping point, especially when familia gets involved .........., or Subpoenaed to appear before a Federal Grand Jury----Scott Johnson in CD 14.    

Did Political Smoke obscure the TRUE origin of In District, Small Donations (allegedly)? 
For a Five, Ten or Twenty Spot, you can stand with Nury (allegedly).

BREAKING NEWS!! Tony Villar engaged to become "Antonio VIllargovea for Governor 2018"

Just in time for his rumored, next Political Incarnation, former Los Angeles Failure Mayor Antonio Villar Tweets his Engagement to a centain "Patricia Govea". Thus, setting the stage for his "Antonio Villargovea for Governor in 2018 Campaign, allegedly".
Who is the soon to be Mrs Antonio Villargovea? See below.
** Blogger's Note: Happy sacred Good Friday to all as many of the devout prepare to celebrate Easter 2016. Thus, on this weekend Christians World-wide celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, it comes as no surprise that a certain, narcissus, self-absorbed, former "Rock Star Politico", turned former Failure Mayor ......., takes another consultant-choreographed step to reincarnate his Political Persona.
With no apologies to the likes of Lu, Eva, Corina, Chulitas from City Terrace, Telebimbos, telegenic Gabachas, Mirthala ........, and Charlie, the former Tony Villar, turned Parke Skelton-crafted Antonio Villaraigosa, is now set to become Antonio Villar-govea.
Via his Twitter (in English y Esponal), the City Terrace Native announced his engagement to a certain "Patricia Govea", who has been dating the former Los Angeles Mayor after his fling with Terminator III Actress Kristanna Loken.
Little is known about the soon to be Mrs. Antonio Villargovea, but then people remember little about the rumored Candidate for Governor's First Wife Corina, who played the role of supporting spouse ......, until that day she found incriminating messages from the "Other Woman" on her husband's Blackberry. 
Thus, for many long term observers of Tony/Antonio, his latest attempt at matrimony will surely be seen cynically as another Parke Skelton-crafted attempt to reinvent City Terrace Tony into 2018 Governor Antonio Villargovea ........, but the voters will be timely-reminded of the political (and personal) baggage of a certain, former Failure Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa----Scott Johnson.

A Tale of Two Communities Response (or lack of) to Rising Crime

As the Crime Rate continues to Rise across the City of Los Angeles, we highlight two contrary examples how Community Stakeholders are coming together (or canceling out) in demanding their fair share of Law Enforcement Resources.
STNC/LAPD Town Hall Meeting Flyer.
 ** Blogger's Note: On the Eve of Good Friday, we bring you two CONTRARY examples regarding how Community Stakeholders are working together (or naught) in mobilizing support for their respective share of Law Enforcement Resources. This evening, the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting with Foothill Division/Valley Bureau Brass, in a culmination of recent efforts to deal with various issues caused by an influx of Homeless into the community.

Meanwhile withing the confines of the LAPD Hollenbeck Division, the latest meeting of its Community Police Advisory Board was cancelled, this in lieu of the latest tragic death involving Cab Driver Antonio Paz Gonzalez, who was senselessly killed after being robbed. Bluntly, with the "alleged (more below) cancellation" of the latest Hollenbeck CPAB Meeting, Stakeholders who have been subjected to the SECOND HIGHEST rate of increase in violent crime within the City of Los Angeles, have been denied an opportunity (again) to speak out and demand their fair share of Law Enforcement resources ..........., but rest assure, those seeking support for their ABC Licenses ("Micro-Brewery in Boyle Heights, USC) still have CPAB's backing----Scott Johnson.

LAPD Hollenbeck Captain Martin Baeza with CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar and CPAB Members.

Hello Community Members, the Hollenbeck Community Police Advisory Board monthly meeting scheduled for Wednesday, March 16, 2016 is canceled and we do apologize for that.  The next meeting will be /Wednesday, April 20th, please be there and bring a friend. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, Officer Macklin, Community Relations Officer.

HOT Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

Second Term-seeking 39th Assembly District Assemblywoman Patty Lopez, is the recipient of a $7,500 FPPC Fine/Lesson on following Campaign Finance Rules.    
Now 39th AD Assemblywoman Patty Lopez (center) during 2014 Ballot Count.
** Blogger's Note: Its a safe bet that any discerning observer of the 2014 39th Assembly District Contest between then Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra, and now Assemblywoman Patty Lopez, would NOT cite the Campaign of the upstart candidate as an ideal Grass Roots-structured example to emulate ..........., especially in regards to its finances. As the Second Term-seeking Assemblywoman NOW KNOWS (via last week's FPPC ruling) , even the best of intentions in campaigning, are still held accountable as noted below.

6. In the Matter of Patricia López, Patty López for Assembly 2014, and Carolina Perez; FPPC Nos. 15/313 and 15/314.Staff: Senior Commission Counsel Angela Brereton, Special Investigator Paul Rasey, and Program Specialist Soni Mangat.

THEE Classic Los Angeles Magazine Cover of a now former Failure Mayor.
** AHHHH, to paraphrase a certain former Failure Mayor Antonio Villar ........, AHHHHH, I have alot of Service left in me (or servicing of Telebimbos?). Thus, we can safely keyboard here that the "2018 Tony Villar for Governor Campaign" is nearly bloggin upon us. But with no apologies to "Team Tony", we must ponder whether a "Failure Politico" is fit to govern "The Greece on the Pacific (formerly The Golden State)" if he can't properly identify an ISIS-inspired Terrorist Attack as exampled below from his Twitter Account yesterday.
 18 hours ago18 hours ago. and I agree, to honor victims of mass shooting, both and should debate there.

AHHHHH?? Maybe "MEAT/Chief Parker" should craft the Tweets (when not driving Tony).
CD 12 City Councilman and LAPD Reserve Officer Mitch Englander.
** Nuch 2.0?? Did I hear a bloggin backfire after the latest campaign shot aimed at LA County Board of Supervisor Candidate Mitch Englander regarding his Ballot Designation as "Councilmember/Police Officer" by opposing Candidate Elon Carr's (and noted Hector Chacon Political Machine Associate) Campaign Consultant John Thomas? In noting his Tweet below that seem to insinuate that the CD 12 Officeholder ........., and LAPD Reserve Officer, is a "Nuch in Uniform" ......, we will simply state, be careful what you wish for.  

 Mar 18Could Mitch Englander be LA County's 2.0?

........, to be continued.

Morning Briefs on the After-hours City Hall Staffer Drinking Scene for Tuesday

We bring you the bloggin details on the latest "Drinking and Driving Exploits" of City Council Staff from CD 1 (Fredy Ceja) and CD 8 (Fredy Torres), who are in serious need of help, regarding the dire ramifications of operating a Motor Vehicle ........., while under the Influence of Alcohol (especially Torres, in a City-owned Car).
CD 1 Staffer Fredy Ceja.
 ** Blogger's Note: Pardon us as we bloggin shake our heads at yet another disclosure of "Drinking and Driving Issues" among City Council Staff (especially when one is caught for the FOURTH time since 2003). Unlike a certain CD 14 Officeholder who admitted to having A DRINK before rear-ending a former Huntington Park Police Officer (and benefiting from a sobering, two-hour siesta in the back seat of a LAPD Squad Car ......, allegedly), both CD 1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo Staffer Fredy Ceja and CD 8 City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson Staffer Fredy Torres (driving a Cit Vehicle), spent some quality weekend time in LAPD's new Downtown Glasshouse. For Ceja, who was involve in a accident with a MTA Bus, this was his FOURTH alcohol-related, driving episode since 2003. One longtime City Hall Observer noted that Ceja's Arrest is sure to prompt questions regarding his employment by Councilman Cedillo, in lieu of the fact that all Council Staffers are subjected to a background check, in which any discriminating details uncovered, are shared with the Officeholders. Below, we post the booking details, as disclosed by the Los Angeles Sheriff Department----Scott Johnson.
