Rumor Mills and Missing Money
With a "pending announcement" scheduled for 12:30 Monday from Huizy, the rumors are running that this is the announcement from the Mayor jumping on board officially. Not that Huizy hasn't been running around town already spreading the news, but at least if true it will now be official. We''ll have to stay tuned to see.
***UPDATE*** Word has it Fabian Nunez will also be at the endorsement press conference
As for other news, according to the LA Downtown News Huizy faced off with Pacheco last week as well. I've clipped out my favorite segment:
A few thoughts...
"I think immediately that money should come forward from the school district. It's unfortunate that José has been aware of it for two years and there has been absolutely no movement," Pacheco said. "There's no legal issue here. If the city of Los Angeles has to pay its BID money, the school district has to pay its BID money, and hopefully that will get results sooner than later."
Questioned after the meeting, Huizar said he learned of the unpaid bill two years ago at a social gathering, rather than during school board duties, and that he asked board staffers about it, but received resistance. "I went back on my own to ask for that information. I didn't want to give the perception that I sat on the issue for two years and did nothing," said Huizar.
He said he is now focusing on the matter. "I'm definitely making it an issue to find the information and address it. While I'm on the school board I'll find a resolution to that for the Fashion District."
Huizy knew of the problem two years ago. He went to his OWN staff and met resistance? wtf? He can't stand up to his own staff? He was the President of the School Board. No, he didn't sit on the issue. He was just to chicken shit to stand up to his own staff. Good thing he's NOW focusing on it. Unless of course he still has the same staff.
And some of you actually support him?
