You would think with all the major issues this city is facing and the racial violence at South LA schools ADV would put his energy into doing something proactive instead of constantly being in front of the cameras. I think someone needs to tell him he's Mayor-elect NOT some movie star

Many on mayor-elect's team don't live in L.A.......At least 26 of the 82 members of Antonio Villaraigosa's transition team come from surrounding communities.
By David Zahniser
Copley News Service

Roughly one-third of Mayor-elect Antonio Villaraigosa's transition team lives outside Los Angeles -- many of them in smaller, more affluent suburbs such as Pasadena, San Marino and Beverly Hills.

But at least 26 of the transition team members have chosen to live in smaller communities such as Santa Monica, South Pasadena and the gated San Gabriel Valley city of Bradbury -- not in sprawling Los Angeles, with its population of 3.7 million.

The transition team includes one resident of Bakersfield -- Dolores Huerta, an icon for organized labor who co-founded United Farm Workers. It also has one Orange County resident -- Don Attore, who handles outreach for the California Teachers' Association, which spent $500,000 on television ads for Villaraigosa's mayoral campaign.

The remaining non-Los Angeles residents come from places as close as West Hollywood, a city nearly surrounded by Los Angeles, to Rowland Heights, a community in the East San Gabriel Valley.

The transition list includes at least six residents of Beverly Hills -- including businessman and former Los Angeles Lakers star Earvin "Magic" Johnson and developer Richard Ziman -- and at least three residents of Santa Monica, including Gordon Davidson, who until recently headed the Mark Taper Forum.

For example, San Marino resident Carol Baca, the wife of Sheriff Lee Baca, is on the board of the Chinese American Museum in downtown Los Angeles.

Pasadena resident Danny Bakewell publishes the Los Angeles Sentinel, a newspaper that serves the city's black residents -- and which endorsed Villaraigosa. West Covina resident James Rosser is president of California State University, Los Angeles, an institution that serves thousands of the city's residents.

The team has only a few residents of the South Bay or Harbor Area, including Wilmington neighborhood council member Cecilia Moreno and Monica Lozano, a Playa del Rey resident who is publisher of the newspaper La Opinion.

The transition team is full of outsiders, why doesn't the media take a note of this nonsense. It is like having North Korea dictate the ongoings for the USA. We do not need outside wannabe candidates that didn't make the election in the transition team. We need people from each of the communities it will serve. Hypocrasy! Antonio es un hipocrita, not tiene honor en su palabra!
