Greuel's Brooklyn Bridge

It appears that Councilwoman Greuel may have a bridge to sell you. After reading the many posts on ryestreet.com, she if nothing else has a bit of explaining to do. Granted the rants of Bruce Forkish are sometimes a bit outlandish, as any field rep will tell you, but it clearly has been a case of bungling the communication with her constituents.

What will she decide? Only time will tell, but clearly Forkish would like an answer by Monday or Tuesday. The Daily News mentions nothing of this deadline. Let the bidding begin.

Here's what's weird in the Daily News article. It says that LAPD Captain James Miller said that "...the department doesn't have statistics on nonviolent crimes in the area..."

How anecdotal! Isn't Chief Bratton a huge proponent of keeping accurate crime statistics? So apparently Capt. Miller is afraid to produce stats that might contradict a Council Member. Wimp!

Everyone should just chill out, take a step back and with the information that has now been gathered, determine what is in NOW in the best interests of the community.

Forkish's blog and constant insulting personal attacks on Gruel, LAPD, etc, are both childish and counter productive. They look more like someone who will do anything to get his name in the press(possible run for office?)than someone who is really trying to do what is right for his community.

Gruel's district should be thankful that they have a councilwoman as responsive and caring as Gruel has proven to be of her community and the entire City. She is innovative, takes prompt action and also continues to be as personally pleasant ans approachable as she was the day before she was elected. As important is her effectiveness, which is a pleasant blessing in City Hall. Gruel is the first to actually make certain that business tax reform is actually coming to LA. She is the first to find a way to increase our thin police force WITHOUT any new taxes in her most recent City Council Motion that was unanimously passed.....and the list goes on.

So, again Forkish.... take a lesson from Gruel and back off and deal with the substance of the real issues that impact the community in a professional and caring manner, instead of your insulting personal attacks and personal desire for public adulation(or in your instance it's turning into self demonization)and BRIDGE the gap, by dealing as a professionally with the issues and you may get some discussion or action from both Gruel's office and the LAPD that benefits the community. By continuing your present approach, you will only further discredit that which you may be able to positively bring to the community and isolate yourself with your 'blog'.

People laugh at clowns, they don't take them seriously. The choice as to how your thought of is your !!!

I just spent about 20 minutes at the site. Could someone please name ONE statement in the Ryestreet blog that is inaccurate? Unless Forkish forged all of those pdf files, the evidence against Wendy Gruel is very damning! She's been proven dishonest by her own emails.

I can't believe all the documentation and work that went into rye website. Wouldn't it be great if every district had someone who could document all these facts and not just take the word of our council members?

I am waiting patiently to see how this plays out. I'm sure Ms. Greuel and her staff will think twice now sending e-mails and watching their every step.

The Los Angeles Daily News came down on our side of the issue in today's editorial:

"...Greuel ordered the closure of one of the few things in the city that actually works."

Regarding the comments by 8:36 I would strongly suggest that one re read what the facts are and then try and write such glowing remarks about Greuel. Greuel is practising discrimination and performing segregation. Greuel created this divide by patonizing one "well heeled" person on the north side of the bridge. If you had tried to deal with Greuel's office as many of us did you would have found the disrespect that we encountered and still do. Greuel's office first asks what side of the bridge you live oin before they even answer a question. The website speaks for many of here as we all can have input if we like and we all are information gatherers. It amazes me that after you have read the FACTS you seem to see no flaw and wish to ask Forkush to attempt to bridge tha gap. Astounding!!!! Greuel succeeded in alienating a community and if you read the blog I have no idea how you could possibly see otherwise, unless of course you work in Greuel' ffice.
