HamburgularYet another example of Tony Villar stealing ideas as highlighted by the Daily News. He's pushing a health care plan (didn't know that was the province of the City to provide health care) that apparently is similar to ideas expressed before:
Some of Villaraigosa's proposals were similar to those advanced by former Mayor Richard Riordan, such as having the city work with the Los Angeles Unified School District to ensure all eligible children are enrolled in the state's Healthy Families program.
Daily News
Well there you go - the Riordan-Villaraigosa Health Plan. Just don't get sick.

Antonio is quoted in LAT....Healthcare is usually not part of the mayor's job description." He really can't be that stupid to back something and then say the above quote or is he? Wait, didn't Attention Deficit Villaraigosa have an opportunity to help when he was up in Sacramento, oh I forgot he took money away from local cities and almost had CA go bankrupt.

And he stole that plan from Martha Escutia, as was previously proven on a past thread. But then that is Tony's M.O.. He's not bright enough to have an original thought and he's not sharp enough to hire smart people to think for him. Other things Tony has stolen: most of Pacheco's accompishments - the 14th district is back to the state of blight reminiscent of Alatorre's reign; he's stolen good ideas and policy from virtually every current councilman; he's stolen labor dues money to finance his self centered crusade; and oh yeah, he stole his compadres' wife.

Antonio is trying to win this election with big ideas and the way the press eats it up aything is possible.

He doesn't have to have a way to pay for them as long he gets his name out there in a positive light.

That was sarcasm, I'm sure. Since he gets caught - easily - for every theft, and has been/will be unsuccessful at any major "heist" like becoming mayor (LOSER 4 years ago again a BORING candidate; incapable of winning a two-way in L.A. citywide in any case), there's no chance he'll become a "made" man, even against a "Gotti" type mayor (that was sarcasm, too).

Stealing ideas is a "positive light?"

I just saw Attention Deficit Villaraigosa's tv commercial. What a joke! Since he has nothing to say about his accomplishments as councilman except having his constituents pick up brooms and the other is creating a big fat lie of creating 80 neighborhood watches that we can't find one person in all of CD14 to say its true not even LAPD. I can't believe the media is being this stupid. HE talks about his record as assemblyman. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ANTONIO WE'RE IN THE CITY OF LA NOW....

How embarrassing when one of your constituents has to go to city council from CD14 as did this guy and slam Attention Deficit Villaraigosa's staff. HE called them inempt, inefficient and basically worthless to the community. Here's a guy who took the time to go to council because he thought it was that important. Its about time he slammed those morons of field staffers and did it on camera in front of everyone. I bet Jimmy ran over and threatened him like he does anyone who goes to council and embarrasses ADV.

Robert Greene nails the ADV® promise-them-anything; money-is-no-object (since I won't deliver, anyway) practice in a piece in today's LA Weakly. He takes similar shots at the "I wanna" speak of most of the other candidates, as well. Villaraigosa's, is more interesting, however, since it seems to always include lifting other people's unfunded promises:

"From Villaraigosa: “I want to connect that Red Line that stops at Western Avenue and take it all the way to the ocean . . . I want to connect the Green Line to LAX and take it down Lincoln Boulevard where Playa Vista is and connect it to the Exposition Line. I want to . . .”

Okay, Antonio, so do I. I want lots of stuff. We all want lots of stuff. Can somebody in this room talk about the choices we have to make as a city? Can we talk about not being able, physically, to spend the same dollar on both police and transportation, or to spend the same dollar both in Chatsworth and Wilmington? Can we talk about the fact that Los Angeles really isn’t a city in the same way that San Francisco is, that we are a collection of communities under a common administrator, that we ought to change that, or rethink what a city is and live with it? Can we talk about what we expect of a mayor?"
