Parents Summit on the Crisis in LAUSD

In a bit of campaign maneuvering and what I'm hoping is noble intentions of dealing with an actual crisis that everyone admits exists, Nick Pacheco blasted the following press release to his audience:

Saying "Parents are Crucial to the Solution,"”
Pacheco Calls for Parents Summit on the Crisis in LAUSD

Los Angeles, CA - "Parents are vital in bringing about any change in the LAUSD," said former city Councilman Nick Pacheco. "We have to include our schoolchildren'’s parents and loved ones in any solution to the problems facing our disintegrating school system."

Citing high drop out rates, increasing racial tension in the classroom and lack of parent outreach, Pacheco said that politicians and education experts alone wouldn'’t find solutions. "That'’s why I am calling for a Parents Summit," said Pacheco, "“ I want to hear first hand, before the recently set up committees and commissions get too far along, what our children'’s parents and loved ones have to say to us. I want to hear from the children, as well. Neither politicians nor experts have a monopoly on caring for our future generations".

Former Councilman Pacheco said he is writing to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to ask him to co-sponsor the summit, which hopefully will be held as early as next month.

Here is a copy of the letter to the Mayor. Click on the image to enlarge.

In other Pacheco spam news, we get updated on the following:

Q & A Session Available Regarding LAUSD Budget Woes and Issues:
Tuesday, July 26 at 6:30 PM
El Sereno Senior Center

Representatives from LAUSD and the State will be available on Tuesday, July 26 - 6:30 pm at the El Sereno Senior Center to discuss the current financial woes at LAUSD. Find out:

- how did LAUSD overspend their fiscal year 2003-2004 budget by $253 million? What assurances do we have that those funds were spent in the classroom and not the bureacracy?

- what does it mean that State Controller Steve Westly has put LAUSD on the state's financial watch list? How does the "watch list" work and what can parents and teachers do to help the school district get off the list?

- why is the district considering spending $49 million for a parking structure so soon after spending $184.2 million to move top brass and staff into a downtown building?

- why did LAUSD submit a "qualified" financial rating to the Los Angeles County Office of Education, indicating that the district is uncertain whether it can meet its financial obligations over the next 3 years?

- can Romer's secret fund be used to make improvements at local schools?

The Senior Center is located at 4818 Klamath Place, (x-street Eastern) Los Angeles, CA 90032 (323) 223-1399.


Mayor Villaraigosa Plans City Budget Cuts

Dear Friends:

As was reported in the LA Times the city budget woes have caused Mayor Villaraigosa to push the departments to "start scaling back a bit." It is reported that the City could face a $225 million dollar deficit beginning July 1, 2006 if changes are not made immediately.

As former Chair of the Budget and Finance committee, I can tell you that the Mayor is in a good position to impose cuts and get things on track. As the Chief Executive he can reign in the departments and make sure that they maintain the current level of City services.

I am committed to working with the Mayor and utilize my prior experience as Chair of the Budget and Finance committee to assist him in this important task.

NO INCREASE IN TRASH COLLECTION FEES: I will fight back any desire to impose a fee for collecting trash from single-family homes in Los Angeles to solve our budget problems.

We will get through these lean years and, unfortunately, the City Budget will only focus on the basic city services for CD 14.

However, there is good news for us below!!!


CD 14's "Million Dollar Baby": CLARTS Amenities Fund

Dear Friends:

Many of you have tracked the various CD 14 motions spending CLARTS Community Amenities Trust Funds (04-2219 $50,000 to Para Los Ninos, 05-0795 $30,000 to Self Help Graphics, 03-0307-S5 $2,369.99 to Mariachi Festival, 03-0307-S6 $60,000 to Centro de Ayuda, & 05-1371 $66,000 to Council District 14 Staff Costs) and have wanted to know how this fund was created. For the last three years this fund has been in the works and I want to personally thank Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for completing this project while Councilmember.

When the Department of Sanitation approached me with the idea of purchasing the Central Los Angeles Recycling and Transfer Station (CLARTS) in 2002, I told them that I would agree to the purchase ONLY IF a community amenities trust fund was established. I had known about the one for Sunshine Canyon Landfill and figured "if it was good enough for the Valley, it was good enough for us on the Eastside." They agreed and thus the agreement for the CLARTS Community Amenities Trust Fund was born.

According to the very first motion (04-2219) introduced to spend the funds, every fiscal quarter generates $226,000.00 dollars for CD 14, around $1 Million a year.

This fund puts CD 14 in the unique position of not having to rely on the City's budget to fund local projects. As I have walked in various neighborhoods the following projects have surfaced and seem worthy of support:

-- bus shelters and cement platforms along Valley Boulevard in El Sereno

-- $10,000 to each fire station that services CD 14 for station repairs, including removing barbed wire and putting wrought iron

-- historic lamps along Figueroa north of York Blvd. -- maintenance contract with Clean and Green for the Evergreen Jogging Path

-- Northeast Film Festival -- Farmers Market in Boyle Heights

-- Art Scholarships for residents of CD 14, redeemable at Self Help Graphics

-- padded chairs for all the Senior Centers

If you have any other suggestions e-mail us at teampacheco14@sbcglobal.net.

It is an exciting time to be a resident of CD 14 and I look forward to being a hands on Councilmember that spends our resouces in the community.

Pacheco - tons or lie-improving work in his first team, AND a $1 million a year legacy of FOUND (CLARTS) money into a district he isn't even CM of anymore. AV's staff is STILL sitting on $2 million in CITY FUNDS for improvement projects they haven't dispenses... waiting to see who bows low enough to deserve it before they bail!

Nick = new private funds in, and getting used; ran the city budget committee when budgets were met and flush; AV -- OLD taxpayer funds collecting dust in downtown vaults, and the FIRST moves as mayor are CUT CITY BUDGETS... even before going looking for new funds. Maybe AV ought to ask NICK to do the prospecting for much-needed outside funds... HE DELIVERED to CD14; AV couldn't AND wouldn't!

WAKE UP AND SMELL THE CORRUPTION. Villaraigosa's "caretakers" in CD14 continue to withhold MASSIVE amounts of money from constituents.

Let's have a few dozen MORE "tricky" politicians downtown, and MAYBE we wouldn't be in such deep shit, Sherlock.

Want AV and crew to get something done? Try to embarrass Villaraigosa, and his STAFF will move HEAVEN and EARTH to finally, finally, finally, get something on track.

Ask the Southwest Museum Coalition how much good it's done them to kiss up to AV to get his attention (and donate $200K or more to his campaign-of-the-year). Has he done anything to keep the "cowboys" at the Autry from raping and pillaging L.A.'s first museum.

NOPE, and NOW they're panicking -- again.

Now ask the DOG PARKE people how fast things got moving once it looked like little Tony might be embarrassed by not being able to finish one TINY, tiny funded 6-month project Pacheco started almost 3 years ago. Poke, poke, poke...

I think Nick might pull this thing off because it kills two birds with one stone by putting AV and Huizar into a corner that they can't worm their ways out of;
1)AV for being the Education mayor and pulling that nice pay-for-play LA's BEST fundraiser that got $1.3 million dollars(When the city budgeted that exact amount) and most of the business borkers in LA aren't exactly thrilled about AV.
2) Huizar has to face the fact that he has done anything but ride someone else coattails, which the voters will see.

What is happening is that MEXICO is just next door, so more Latin American Immigrants are crossing over (due to distance). All they do is get on public assistance, bankrupt Medical, and foodstamps, and work under the table (CASH). How many people do you know or have met that do this?

How many families lie and say they are single moms with no husbands, while the husband works for cash & fails to report this income, meanwhile the wife and 4+ kids receive welfare, medical, foodstamps and financial aid. A working family (honest working family) usually does not qualify for medical, and US citizens are denied MEDICAl based on income, regardless if they can or cannot afford healthcare.

As one community, as one people, as one nation within a nation as the community that we are, the Chicano/Latino community of this nation. What this means is a transfer of power. It means control."

"Que viva la causa! It is an honor to be with the new leadership of the Americas, here meeting at UC Riverside. So with 187 on the ballot, what is it going to take for our people to vote - to see us walking into the gas ovens? It is electoral power that is going to make the determination of where we go as a community. And power is not given to you -- you have to take it. Remember: 187 is the last gasp of white America in California. Understand that. And people say to me on the Senate floor when I was in the Senate, 'Why do you fight so hard for affirmative action programs?' And I tell my white colleagues, 'because you're going to need them.'"

We cannot - we will not- and we must not be made illegal in our own homeland. We are not immigrants that came from another country to another country. We are migrants, free to travel the length and breadth of the Americas because we belong here. We are millions. We just have to survive. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies.

"Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets, we're here today to show L.A., show the minority people here, the Anglo-Saxons, that we are here, the majority, we're here to stay. We do the work in this city, we take care of the spoiled brat children, we clean their offices, we pick the food, we do the manufacturing in the factories of L.A., we are the majority here and we are not going to be pushed around. We're here in Westwood, this is the fourth time we've been here in the last two months, to show white Anglo-Saxon Protestant L.A., the few of you who remain, that we are the majority, and we claim this land as ours, it's always been ours, and we're still here, and none of the talk about deporting. If anyone's going to be deported it's going to be you! Go back to Simi Valley, you skunks! Go back to Woodland Hills! Go back to Boston! To back to the Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You're old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you, leave like beaten rats. You old white people, it is your duty to die. Even their own ethicists say that they should die, that they have a duty to die. They're taking up too much space, too much air. We are the majority in L.A. There's over seven million Mexicans in L.A. County alone. We are the majority. And you're going to see every day more and more of it, as we manifest as our young people grow up, graduate from high school, go on to college and start taking over this society. The vast majority of our people are under the age of 15 years old. Right now we're already controlling those elections, whether it's by violence or nonviolence. Through love of having children we're going to take over." Other demonstrators: "Raza fuerza (brown race power), this is Aztlan, this is Mexico. They're the pilgrims on our land.

"There's only two forms of power in this country and in this world. One is economic power, We certainly don't have the economic power because we don't own the means of production, but there's another form of power, and that's the power of the masses. So you can be as revolutionary as you want, you can be Chicano nationalist, you can be Mexican-American, you can be Hispanic, you can believe in the concept of Aztlan, you can believe in the concept of multi-culturalism.The time has come for unity - there's too many things that separate people, but we have to begin to look at what brings us together. And so I ask everybody here, how many of you agree if we can leave here with one thing today, that in 1996 we are going to Washington DC on a mass mobilization there to bring Washington to a standstill so that they know that we're there and that we begin to put into place those things that are necessary to insure that we advance the interests of our community. Raise your hands, those of you that agree with what I'm saying."

GOOD FOR NICK. Face the facts people who voted for Antonio the 1st time round are supporting NICK. WHY? Cause he has a record of accomplishments. Jose doesn't have any experience. You can open the newspaper any day of the week and find a negative story on LAUSD. What has Jose done about any of the problems? NADA. Nothing, he's hiding behind Antonio. CD14 can't afford to babysit Jose. HE can't start off running. He needs to be trained and get his orders from Antonio. CD14 needs someone like Nick who has it all.

Pacheco is not even in office yet constituents were calling him for help while Antonio was off campaigning. That's why he has grass root support throughout the district. Little sleazy Huizy can get all the endorsements and money he wants. In the end experience and a record is what's going to win the race. JOSE HAS NEITHER. All of a sudden he's attending community meetings. He's been out of sight for too many years. He'll get slammed if he attends certain community meetings because they're are many in CD14 who can't stand him for doing nothing about Roosevelt High.

Are you ignorant just today or always anon?

I do not know who was councilman during the take over of these high schools, the councilman is irrelevant for LAUSD issues. What I am more concerned is who was in charge of LAUSD during this take over. For example, was Huizar or another in charge during this time?

Now that is relevant because they are directly responsible for LAUSD decisions.

Stop the madness anon of shapeshifting the data...it is not that difficult just find out if Huizar was in charge in LAUSD or not during this other of many LAUSD crisis.

Jose Huizar is a nice guy. He treats people well and talks a good talk. My concern is that his only real test as an elected has been part-time job as Schoolboard member and he has been a very bad disappointment. He is owned by school construction companies and Riordan. As Councilmember, he will be owned by Villaraigosa.

The other issue is that he has yet to deliver. Talk is good on the campaign trail but we need action from our Councilmember.

Why does the Huizar Team A.K.A CD14 Team hate Pacheco so much? If he was as worthless, corrupt and not a good councilman, why go after him any chance they can get?

My guess is they fear him because they know he was a good councilman and has the best chance to win so they are trying to tear him down.

Very sad to see.

I want my tree trimmed dammit! Stop spending time on Pacheco and listen to the residents who pay your salary.

Will the CD14 staffers please tell me why is Antonio's name still on flyers going out to the community? Apparently there is going to be another community cleanup in Northeast area on Aug 6th and Antonio's name is on the flyer as again a special guest appearance. Damn, Antonio is in CD14 more now then when he was councilman. Sure sounds like he can't let go of the control. Will Sleazy Huizy be right behind him. Antonio needs to concentrate on the city. Quick screwing around in CD14 and start doing your job. Its already been over a month and we're yet to see ONE thing you've done as MAYOR.

Team Pachueco needs a theme song for its remake of Tricky Nick and his Moby-Dick, but it should fit the story line. Think of your favorite revenge fantasy movies and TV shows, like Kill Bill, Walking Tall, The Equalizer, Man on Fire, Death Wish, etc., etc.

Jose will be there - he's the one that came up with the idea for the meeting in the first place.

It'll be interesting to see if the Gov. sends anyone - I doubt it. I don't think he would want the wrath of Mark and Ken on him for talking about he’s going to educate undocumented immigrants. And here I thought he would stay true to his campaign theme of being an immigrant and all the other shoe strap bullshit he muttered. Arnold – you’re a liar!

Gloria Romero will also be there, but this is the first I hear of MAV going.

To you Pachuecos in the know - what happened to the Baca endorsement??? I thought your boy had Lee in his back pocket? Up to today, I have not heard of ONE elected official – Latino or otherwise – having endorsed Nick. If they had, he would have sent the same press release out ten times – like he usually does.

So where are you in the signature gathering?

Jose will turn in more than enough signatures by Monday - I collected 50 by myself, in two hours, this weekend. How many volunteers were out walking with Team Pacheuco?
