Bloggin Memo to Mayor Garcetti: "When will USC join the Rams in Paying for LAPD Security"?
Garcetti said Tuesday that the original arrangement for security at Rams games — with the team paying for security officers inside the stadium while the city paid for officers outside — mirrored that for the USC Trojans. He said one reason the new deal with the Rams had taken weeks to work out was that the college was worried that it too might be required to pay for a police presence at football games. “We can work on that long-term,” Garcetti said.

Mayor Sam's First EXCLUSIVE Female Politico HOT Briefs for Monday
“Councilwoman Nury Martinez has been an outstanding leader and I look forward to collaborating on the Council to advocate for our Northeast Valley districts. As the only elected woman out of eighteen elected officials at City Hall, Councilwoman Martinez has been a champion not only for her district, but for families and children throughout the City,” said Monica Rodriguez. “Our campaign is stronger thanks to Councilwoman Martinez’s support, and I look forward to joining her on the Council, advocating for the Northeast Valley’s fair share and putting our residents and families first.”
Maybe Nury can teach Monica the Campaign Money Laundry Practice of having Staffers hand out $20, $10 and $5 Dollar Bills to Family Members ........, for Public-financed Matching Funds Contributions?

Hot Teasing Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday
A bill that would place charter schools under the same transparency rules as their public counterparts faces a likely veto. AB 709 by Assembly Member Mike Gipson (D-Gardena) would put charter schools (except those on tribal reservations) under either the Brown Act or the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act—depending on whether their sponsors were local or state entities—as well as the California Public Records Act and state laws barring conflicts of interests in government and requiring the filing of public statements of economic interests by the board members and key employees. The need for such sunshine regulation, at least in some states, is suggested by an August 21 report on John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” program. The bill got a final vote of approval Wednesday (August 24) and is now headed for the Governor’s desk. It may well die there as did a similar measure last year, because Governor Brown, as mayor of Oakland, founded two charter schools there and, according to columnist Dan Walters, has “placed $20 million in ‘startup funds’ for new charters in his 2016-17 budget.”
We wonder what Mr. Soto's (and political friends) "Real Opinion" of the Mayor Sam Blog would be if we increased our discerning coverage of the Charter School's governess (or maybe we already do)?/

A Mid-Day Brief on a "Proclamation for Smear Scheme (allegedly)" via the "Brian Hews/Los Chacon News"
“HMG-CN’s investigative work revealed a previously unprecedented level of corruption leading to the arrest at least one official now facing 60 felony counts, while reminding other public officials that they are not above the law, and their detailed work and dedication to uphold the law demonstrated the power of investigative journalism and restored faith in disenfranchised members of the public by holding public officials accountable and ensuring an informed populace,” the resolution stated. The Resolution also proclaims: “HMG-CN provided the much-needed voice for the American people and reminded us all that we are responsible for ensuring that our rights are not misrepresented, misconstrued, or taken advantage of.”
Surely, longtime Democratic Operative/Sacramento Staffer Trent Hager would agree with the latter. (and BOLDed part) of the statement, excerpted above, as he faces the repercussions of being the subject matter of another "Exclusive", originating from the keyboard of a supposed, award-winning journalist, as noted below.
A Hews Media Group-Community News exclusive investigation has found that Trent Hager, Chief of Staff to Senator Cathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton CA) and now Adam Gray (D-Merced), paid to contact escorts on the Ashley Madison adultery website and did most of the illicit work while on state time. Hager earns a hefty $141,408 per year according to the Senate.ca.gov website and is married to Janelle Beland, who works for Governor Jerry Brown.
In reviewing the shallow content of this supposed exclusive, we have to question why Brian Hews keyboarded the outing of a Democratic Staffer, who is listed as being the current and former Chief of Staff to Central California-based Officeholders, which would be of nominal interest to his normal readership?
That answer may be predicated in what is now a Propaganda Smear Fishwrap, compare to a former Weekly Newspaper of Record, that was once lauded by for its Investigated Journalism in 2013.
In noting the work history of Hager, Publisher/Editor/Writer/now Propagandist Brian Hews, omitted the FACT that Hager was ALSO the Chief of Staff to former Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, who is the Democratic Candidate for the vacant 25th State Senate District .............., a political office, much-coveted by Termed-out Assemblyman Mike Gatto (a noted antagonist of Portantino).
Thus, its very conceivable that Hews was again, engaging in yet another Act of Journalistic Malpractice, in which the now, "Brian Hews/Los Chacon News", is known for (and paid for in ads or proclamations) in Southeast Los Angeles County.
** There is also speculation that the Hager Hit Piece, also had a link to his former work for past political opponents of current Central Basin Water District Director (and former Assemblyman) Phillip Hawkins .........., who is allied with Art Chacon.

Mayor Sam Exclusive:The LA-32 NC/Empower LA Staff Attempted to Cover-Up Open Meeting Rules Violation
Dear LA32 Executive Committee,It was brought to our attention that the August board meeting agenda was not posted on your website with the Brown Act 72 hours requirement. Just to be clear, not posting on the website is not a violation of the Brown Act but is a violation of the Neighborhood Council Agenda Posting Policy. The agenda was posted properly at the physical posting location and therefore, Brown Act compliant. Per the Agenda Posting Policy, Neighborhood Councils are also asked to send the agendas to us at NC Support to be put on the Early Notification System. This was done within the Brown Act time frame. The issue at hand is that the agenda did not get posted on the website in time. This same situation also happened with your June 28th Public Safety meeting in which the chair did send the agenda to the webmaster and it was not posted on time. Because there is proof that the webmaster did receive the request to post before 72 hours, you can go forward with the meeting tomorrow night. But we do ask that you make every effort for all future board, special, and committee meetings to be posted per the Brown Act requirements or else future meetings not posted on your website in the needed time frame will be deemed a violation of the Neighborhood Council Agenda Posting Policy. In order for this not to happen again, the board may want to re-visit who gets to post agendas on the website. Also, your webmaster Aaron DeVandry is no longer a City Vendor and should not be used for website services. Our Department can work with you to identify another City approved website vendor. Let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to share with the board.Thanks! Thomas Soong Project Coordinator - Leadership Development Strategist
Again, objective interpretation of Empower LA Policies is an afterthought when enabling
"The Political Chosen Ones" of the current incarnation of the LA-32 NC.
