Huizar Dives in "Officially"
To Pacheco's credit, he submitted a 90 page pdf file last night of his "transition" memo to MEAV for the dead Mayor's to read. I won't bore you with most of it, but suffice it to say it is quite in depth. If nothing else it shows organization. It also offers a great glimpse of what he will most likely use as the spine of his campaign while touting his accomplishments. Among the interesting highlights are barbs from the cover memo to AV:
Welcome to the world of local politics. It is a very exhilitrating place to serve. The LA City Council is one of the most unique bodies in the country. Because we represent close to a quarter million residents, we face many diverse challenges; especially when you are expected to be inclusive to the many different ethnic groups in the District.
You will find that much of your time will be spent speaking directly to your constituents. This time will be the most cherished moments of your day; especially when you have solutions to their problems. The 14th Council District residents have overwhelmingly been very supportive of my work and enjoy the time spent with them at their homes or problem areas.
Enclosed you will find information that should be helpful as you assume your duties and responsibilities. The community members identified in this transition memo look forward to working with you to improve their neighborhoods. I have assured them that you also strongly believe in neighborhood empowerment and your vast network of contacts will assist them in all your joint ventures.
I wish you well and am confident you will find the District has been well taken care of in the past four years. Feel free to contact me at ****** if you have any questions.
Councilmember, 14th District
P.S. If you haven't been told by now, " Yes, you are responsible for everything in the District.":)
Note I didn't add the happy face. Nick did. Think he was setting AV up for a rematch? Will Whomever AV backs have to defend AV's record of living up to Nick's challenge? The specific challenges will be coming shortly. They are numerous. I don't want to rehash the "80 neighborhood watch crap" get debated on ad nauseum. They will incite more conflicts than this one post will hold, so I'll release them one by one for you to argue over after I do some homework. Stay tuned. Parker, are you there?
