Padilla's Love Affair with the City of San Fernando -- PART IV

Here was my plan. Take all of the info I have been given and had been able to find about our Council President Alex Padilla and put together a post, a sort of expose, before his little Senate race. The post became so long I split it up. Today's post was supposed to wrap it all up in a neat tidy package and I'd head off into the sunset for a relaxing weekend.

However, I'm changing directions. I'm going to use this post to address some of the comments from the previous three parts, and ask your patience while we continue the series next week. I have been flooded with e-mails, but one I received just last evening took the cake. I need a day to vet it all out, as everything posted so far in this series has and will continue to hold up to the fire, and hope to continue feeding your appetites for a bit.

My summary of the posts so far is this:

Alex invests in three campaigns in the City of San Fernando to get a desired outcome in a heated race. His picked bloc ends up getting sued (Dr. Jose Hernandez, Julie Ruelas) after the election, which causes the city to most likely payout a million dollars to clean up his mess.

His anti-liquor and inflammatory hit pieces used in the campaigns do not coincide with his granting of liquor licenses for his henchman James Acevedo.

This is how he makes a "GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION" on the citizens of San Fernando-- a shortfall of one million dollars out of their budget and leaders in the pockets of a proven slimeball.

Alex Padilla can most likely count on the support of Julie Ruelas and Jose Hernandez for his senate seat, which will mean jack shit, because they're responsible for the lawsuit and we're helping to expose all of it.

Lame duck Nury Martinez is left to ponder her next move, despite her day boss, because Senator Richard Alarcon is already endorsing Assemblymember Cindy Montanez.

And the City of San Fernando has these idiot members thanks in part to Alex Padilla himself, and they have a lawsuit over an issue they have no business having any part of, being that they can't even control these issues in their own backyards.

Now, to address a few of the comments...

Part I set the stage for the play. The comments speak for themselves.

Part II introduced the controversy over my use of bringing the daughter of an elected into the mix. A few thoughts...
1) Again, the screen captures I used are all in the public domain. They were all put there by her. She is of age. The 30 some-odd other pictures and posts and e-mails I sat on, even though they would prove my case that much more and prove Ruelas had intimate knowledge of what was going on. But I didn't, and I won't, because I only needed to make the point that if you can't control your own house, how dare you try to control everyone else's.
2) Any parents out there should learn a valuable lesson about this. Teach your kids about the internet. Anything they post or send could come back to bite them in the ass. If you need an example, contact Tony Scudellari

Part III introduced the money, or pay as we like to call it. We also introduced you one of the people who Alex Padilla likes to call his "trusted advisor." The comments again speak for themselves.

Add it together and the picture begins to form....Playing with elections....Paying certain friends.... Conflicts over city issued permits....Ties to the Hahn Administration...

Stay tuned for Part V, looking at Sylmar...
This one brings it a little closer to home, right inside CD 7, and the City of LA...

(Look for updates to this series next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. I figure if Alex Padilla can ignore the masses during Council Session on those days, we can give them a forum and a little chit-chat to keep them occupied and relieve the stress. Chalk it up to another public services that the Sister City provides for our constituents.)

Mayor Frank, you must be under the influence of a Cindy-staffer. Padilla's actions due merit discussion, but you have no evidence whatsoever that Ruelas and Hernandez are under the tutelage of Padilla.

Just because Padilla supported Hernandez and Ruelas does not mean they answer to him or will endorse him in his Senate Race. Secondly, you are obviously ignorant of San Fernando City politics and have failed to see some of the good that Ruelas, Hernandez, and Martinez have done.

Third, the liquor license has nothing to due with Padilla and the Council trio. They were adament about the liquor license prior to the city's election in March. Go and read the council minutes. Also, Padilla has nothing to do with the current lawsuit and is no way related to Hernandez and Ruelas getting sued by a redeveloper who claimes his civil rights are being denied because the council won't issue him a liquor license permit.

I look forward to see how you connect this, however, next week.

Totally dismantling the public's trust of elected officials to the point that the general public doesn't give a rat's ass about who is in office - hence the pathetic apathy rate. This allows them to operate with impunity and there buddies make millions while crime rates, school drop out rates, unemployment rates, and any other statistic confirming inner city blight takes root. Not much has changed in Latino communities in Los Angeles over the past 30 years, with the exception of a nearly 300% increase in Latino elected officials.

Nobody benefits but him and his cronies of him being soooooo "influential."

Meanwhile, the streets look like sh**, well except for the street his mother lives on. That's been repaved twice. No street lights, No sidewalk, and whole lotta nuthin on my block

As far as I'm concerned that committee is another campaign stint for both Padilla/Huizar and it'll go nowhere. Prediction: education committee disbanded after elections. Huizar continues his presidency legacy of having done nothing. Padilla continues his presidency legacy of having done nothing.


Ruelas is an idiot she's gun hoe in supporting anything Chilletas does. Moron Ruelas, by supporting Mayoral control of LAUSD you give away any possible influence you currently have with the district. Doesn't the lame duck see she's being used. Here's her thought pattern..."Uh I'm the mayor of San Fernando and I want the LA Mayor to control the schools in my city." Hell she should be pushing for break up of the district! I would if I was the city of San Fernando.

In my day, we'd even keep up Alex's district, even though it is way out in the boonies.

We would lay new Asphalt and pour Concrete sidewalks that would last for a generation or two.

The problem is lack of interest from Alex to provide even basic maintenance for his district.

Why don't you walk the side walk from Astoria and San Fernando Road northwest to Roxford. Yeah, I know we last poured concrete there in 1954. But, you know the current residents wouldn't know who, what or how to sue even if they tripped. No need to be concerned about liability.

So, this fine district along Route 66 in Sylmar is part of the land that time forgot.

And a place that Alex Padilla has never been.

The Seventh dictrict needs to get away from its liquor store-automotive shop look.

Perhaps Padilla has focused his efforts on trying to maintain his council presidency than with providing Dictrict 7 with quality servces.

You could compare Sylmar with a city of the same size. Let's choose either San Fernando or Watsonville, CA. The population is close. The square miles are close.

Watsonville: 4-6 police patrols all shifts.
LAPD: It used to be 1-3/4 cars per shift. Maybe better now.
San Fernando: 4-6 police patrols
all shifts.

Watsonville: 3-4 fire stations.
LAFD: 1 Station that serves Sylmar and San Fernando.
San Fernando: A Pacoima, Mission Hills and Sylmar neighboring fire station to serve all.

We could keep going on for pages about the City Services, but you should be getting the point.

And 25 days after Alex is sworn in for his last 4 years, he has gotten bored and needs a new job in Sacramento. Something isn't right here.

I don't think Dictrict 7 has gotten any better. Sure a library has been constructed here and there (don't get me wrong, I am all for education) and a street has been paved here and there, but it seems that the quality of life and the environment is detiorating.

Have you been done Glenoaks Street and Polk Street? Pot holes everywhere. I am all for affordable housing but Padilla needs to preserve some of the open space in his district. Oh yeah, and there are no good places to eat and shop at in the NE Valley (for the most part).

But, we have Mark Handel who wants to build homes right against the 210 Freeway. The Sierra Club put out a Highway Health Hazards report last year pointing out how unhealthy living next to a freeway is and the resultant lung and respiratory disease issues.

You idiots sound like a bunch of turkeys in a barn, "The farmer's not feeding us enough! These conditions suck! Yaddah, yaddah, yaddah!"

Any politician will pursue their best interests. It is up to US to design a government that harnesses a politicians best interest to work in the public's favor.

Our local system of government grants power and authority to politicians that don't neccesarily help all of us out. In fact, it heavily rewards politicians who slight our interests!

All this vitriol should be channelled into something productive! Pull your heads out of your butts!

What would make a Councilmember NEED to be more responsive to the needs of the citizenry? Where are the checks and balances in our local government that will create a system we can mostly agree is working?

None of you numb-skulls seems to think about this stuff before whining about the next political scandal.

Though politicians are to blame for their indescretions, they are a product of a system we all have created! Focus on changing that system, and you get different types of politicians.

It's basically the old school versus the new school on the City Council and I don't necessarily mean by age. San Fernando is turning into a much better community and in four more years we'll see more of it transforming as i have in the last four years.

It's so amazing to see how people in the community pit one against the other. It's nothing new. I don't expect it to change. Alot of this is personal too, not just political differences. It's a really small bunch anyways.

Either way I'd choose to live in San Fernando rather than Pacoima or many parts of Sylmar under the thumb of Alex Padilla. Don't get me wrong, alot of Sylmar is getting better (thanks in part to Padilla and Alarcon when he sat on the council), but it seems that AP is neglecting the most vulnerable part. Heck man your the Council President...use some influence and leverage with your general managers to get streets fixed at least those that can be repaired. I go to other council districts and streets in more affluent areas are being repaved by council members some of whom live in those areas. So obviously you have some influence as a council member AP.

We have advised you a million times that Diesel Trucks are necessary for commerce.

The more kids that land in Olive View with Lung and Respiratory conditions help the Medical Community. Just because County Taxpayers are paying out millions to cover all these illness issues, doesn't mean it is bad for the medical community. Lots of jobs at the Hospital.

And please remember what I told you about how inefficiency over at Bureau of Sanitation is over major benefit to their unions. So what if dumping at Sunshine costs the City an extra $100 million per year.

You realize that each trash truck costs $60 per hour to operate. If 20 trucks each take 180 minutes to complete a round trip from the Los Angeles basin to Sunshine Canyon, you are looking at a line haul cost of $3,600.

If recycle sorting was done at the collection yards and all the green, paper, glass, metal, plastic, electronic waste and other valuables were removed downstream, you could then put about 20 local truck loads into one transfer truck.

Financially, you would pay for one transfer truck to the dump at $180 and you'd save the cost of running 19 other trucks out to Sunshine at a cost savings of $3,420. Multiply that times the thousands of trucks needlessly going over to Sunshine.

And it would take less trucks to run the routes and less crew.

Now, all the recyclables you recover all have a market value, so the City of LA could end up saving money by not doing business as usual.

But remember, you are getting in Arnie's way and the Union's won't be happy with less dues paying workers.

Why don't you just go play out on the freeway and leave these decisions to the business as usual insiders? Besides, if you shut down some amount of Sunshine Cyn. dumping, you wouldn't be able to point out that Dan Palmer Jr. wants to put in 50 homes per acre right next to the World's Largest Dump.

I agree. Nury would definately have my support if she ran for office. She is a good person, and stands up to the Montanez click on the San Fernando City Council (Veres and de la Torre).

The reason why Nury would have to ponder her next move, if even that, is because as of right now, there is not really any opportunity for her to advance politically. Alarcon is probably going to the state assembly, should Cindy decide to run for State Senate, and Alex and Cindy are to battle it out for the state senate race. Given that, there is nowhere for Nury to go, but only to stay on the San Fernando City council for another four years until Alarcon and Cindy can no longer run due to term limits.

Why do you mention that Alarcon has been AWOL?

I can guarantee that he was on the Senate Floor doing his job and he was also in his Sacramento office.

Many know that we are working on getting the 405 HOV Lane project moving. I suspect that Richard is overly concerned in protecting his friends over at CalTrans.

He did mention that he strongly believes that Design-Sequence is the way that his team want to do business.

With a good Design-Build team, this project can really move along and get some badly needed Prevailing Wage construction jobs out there for the labor force.

Watch Richard. He wants that Assembly seat, but he doesn't want to disturb his CalTrans teammates.

So politics may kill our HOV lane.

I'm not sure who Sam Taylor is or who you are, but I admit... for a minute, I was stunned and thought you were serious.

Then my sense of humor kicked in. I see you've done some Sunshine homework. At least identify yourself to me. I'm easy to find if I don't already know who you are.. funny post.

Now that we know who da mayor is and his partner in blogging, will this thread get beyond the chismes? we need to hear from people who know the Alex well so we can make a list of all his great accomplishments. This will give the valley sumtin to look fwd to if he wins the senate seat as some have insisted he will do.
woof woof
