A Note From the Misses

Hi Mayor Frankie. How are things back in Los Angeles? Even though I am on vacation in Maui partaking in a national bridge tourney, my cell phone has been ringing off the hook with news nuttier than a pecan pie!
First, I am hearing that Jack Weiss struck a deal with Alex Padilla to become chair of the public safety committee. This shocked the bejeasus out of me since I thought Smith was a shoe-in. Remembering that I am dead, and my hearing ‘ain't what it used to be, it seems that some in city hall are none to happy about this, especially Smith, who will now chair the ad hoc committee on "“back stabbing reform."” One has to wonder if future endorsements were part of this deal.
My next voicemail said something about the possibility of former Miscikowski staffer Adena Tessler becoming MAV'’s Deputy Mayor of Public Safety. Tessler, who is currently being housed in Bitter Bernie land, is a fave of the LAPD --– especially Bratton who presented her with a special plaque during a recent council session to honor her work.
Finally before I head back to the beach, I wanted to let you know about some changes in the airport commission. Actually I am hearing that former LAX Executive Director Lydia Kennard (who was appointed by Riordan) might be making a comeback along with the other Riordan ex'’s that have joined the MAV team. My source was very excited about this possibility since Kennard has an outstanding reputation.
My time at this internet cafe is about to expire, but I thought I would check in at least once before I return to Los Angeles next week. Please feel free to post this on Mayor Sam. Oh, and please tell the Mr. that I send my best and that I will send him a postcard!
