Revamp and Return

Since Mayor Sam got off his duff and revamped the site, I figured a return to the spotlight I couldn't stand to share with "poopie" while he tried valiantly to outshine me as "the most corrupt Mayor" was in order as well. I see not much has changed.

Hahn's soon to be ex-staff and AV haters are still sour grapes, copying and pasting away. Those resumes must be flying. You lost. He won. Get over it already.

Meat is pissing people off with unholy alliances with the Big "O", or as Sam likes to put it, the last time he got his rocks off.

The 'Ol Chief has jumped headfirst into the back-stabbing politics of CD 14, stirring the pro-Pacheco camp into a frenzy. You must enjoy pain.

And for the umpteenth time people are trying to write this site off with chants of "your numbers are dropping" and "I'm gonna go start my own site because I can't play well with others."

I'll be back with an actual post later, but go gargle razorblades or play on a freeway in the meantime. But not the gridlocked 10 in downtown, that's too easy. Try the 110 up around Ave 56. The curves add an element of surprise, and CD 14 likes to play rough.

PS- I'm not Dan Shallman either!

Is this the new standard in Latino politics, fail and you'll get promoted. Tony failed in CD14, now he's the mayor. Huizar says this in today's Times "explaining that he hoped to expand cooperation in a new effort to help the city's failing students." He's acknowledging that as a school board member for the past five years he has failed and now he wants a promotion. Any Latino out there with minimal education, take note, it doesn't matter what you do, it's all in the packaging - just make enough friends to raise the money needed to hire a slick consultant, Latinos are too bumb to know the difference anyway.

This is all thanks to Parks.

....The conviction was overturned after the two officers emerged as key figures in the Rampart corruption scandal, which involved dozens of cases of police misconduct including beatings, shootings and false arrests of gang members.

So far, the scandal has cost the city more than $70 million from settlements, caused more than a dozen officers to leave the force and resulted in more than 100 overturned criminal convictions.

If the numbers are going down, how come there are so many posts every day that my eyes glaze over before I can read them all?

Blog on!

Also, note the little article by Deborah Schoch on about page 6 of today's Times California section. By the time you count up the legal fees, the contract acceleration fees, and the delay payoff to China Shipping, it's about $20 million of public money flushed down the toilet as a result of the arrogance of Jim Hahn, Troy Edwards, Nick Tonsich, and the brilliant Port staff, most of whom are still in place.

I know that there has to be a person from the city blogging here or private sector in the know. So here is my question: There is a family in CD14, a single mom with 3 kids and a disabled father. She is the sole breadwinner of the family (min. wage) and was paying $800 a month rent at a low income housing, but her rent increased $80 due to maintenance. From what I understand, the company that owns the building receives grants to subsidize for the low income units and to make them affordable for the community. The rent increased and she already works but has no food. I came across her path by chance and gave her some cans of food from my home, but is there any help for her and her family. Food programs and also legal help to look into the rent increase to see if it is legal? If anyone here can open their heart and give me some information, please do so, this family is in dire need of food. Keep in mind, she is not on welfare (not that it is bad) but she is a single mom that works to support her school aged kids and disabled father.

Well, if the number of hits is going down, at least the level of the discourse seems to be staying about the same.

Anon 9:56, that's terrible to hear. I don't work for the city but I wish there was some way to help the poor woman. I work for a Residential Real Estate Company and I don't think that the apartment complex can raise her rent like that for typical maintenance repair. Also if she's locked in a lease, they shouldn't be able to do that. But I don't know the law well enough.I'm not a lawyer unfortunately and in her case, it seems like she would need one but probably can't afford one.

Here's what I would do: Contact as many as public elected officials as possible. I don't know this woman's zip code but you can type it in on the Government Guide on AOL. It's probably either Lucille Roybal Allard or Javier Beccera, maybe Hilda Solis. You should also contact Gloria Molina's office, Antonio's office, Jackie Goldberg's office, and Gil Cedillo's office. I'd also suggest calling these offices over writing and emailing. I interned in a congressional office once and it seemed like calls were much more effective than letters and emails.

Goodluck to your friend, I really hope she's allright. That's so unfair.

55 comments on the Pacheco post so far. I guess Mayor Sam is still alive and kicking. Well in the blog world anyway.
