Questions for Huizar

What is in the mind of Jose Huizar?

Follow this link to his "records" page or his "issues" page and you'll find "under construction" banners. Take one look at the accompanying picture and you'll get a vague idea that he doesn't know either...



What is he subliminally telling us? Probably that he doesn't have a clue...

....Yet that was little league compared to a second debate held on Thursday in Boyle Heights. Huizar, thinking he had a strong point, boasted of his endorsement from Villaraigosa, only to be showered with a huge, sustained chorus of boos. Seems there's a bit of displeasure over the councilman who wasn't there.

Odder, however, was a giggle that frequently skipped into Huizar's comments on Monday night. It may have been nerves (the laughter was gone on Thursday), but it was off-putting to see a big grin and hear a chuckle when he uttered lines such as, "At the LAUSD I've felt the frustration of parents who have to deal with the bureaucracy." He even managed a laugh in the dry phrase, "I actually moved a school district regulation..."

Although he wasn't in the room, Villaraigosa did figure in the debate. Pacheco had a sort of passive-aggressive approach. On certain questions he seemed supportive, such as when Pacheco said he would cede to the mayor in efforts to save the Southwest Museum in Mt. Washington, recognizing that Villaraigosa has the "biggest bat."

Pacheco is eager to distance himself from an ill-fated alignment with the Thever & Associates law firm as well as disassociate himself from an ethics probe resulting from that last District 14 race.

Pacheco’s perspective tends to be meta. This former prosecutor is more concerned about illegal taco vending in Highland Park...

TACO VENDING, NICK?

If Pacheco's opposition to taco vending is for real, I will picket his campaign office. The taco trucks on Figueroa are the bomb.

The fast-food, and late-night, dining options in the Arroyo are severly limited. It's either 7-eleven or Jack-in-the-Box past 9 p.m.

I know they can give you the runs every now and again, but those things keep this neighborhood going. Every night of the week, families and single guero's (like me) line up to get some of the best, cheapest, food in the city. It's roadside gourmet (with free radishes and cucumbers).

Why not develop a program that allows the Roach-Coach owners to pass health inspections and park in spots set aside for them. After all, ain't this the country that's supposed to be all about the "ownership society" and free enterprise?

OKAY, that's gets at least another half-demerit for the dim-witted Huizar handlers. Still no "issues and records" weeks after putting up the Website and they actually let their candidate sit UNDER a question mark and THEN took his picture and made it a center piece of the imagery they want the voters to see.

What's the matter, wasn't there a picture of Homer Simpson saying "DOH!" available to hang over his head.

Anyone who's heard him at the debates knows he's clueless, but his hacks and flaks are supposed to try and keep that a secret. Next he'll be telling us he's going to "roll up his sleeves."

Jose Huizar is the latest addition to L.A. "not-ready-for-full-time" politicians club.

Next I'll go to Huizar.

The BFI situation is very important and as a resident of El Sereno, I would have been active against it if it was in my area too. I understand on how you want to see where these candidates stand on BFI now, but if Villaraigosa pulls a fast one AGAIN in February, their vote means zilch. Villaraigosa seems to have the magic wand at this time, and that is very unfortunate. I bet if these council members and the Mayor had Sunshine Canyon as their backyard they would fight day and night to make it go to another area. I see some politicians as hypocrites.

I have a life. Unfortunately, half of it has to do with the fucking landfill.

I didn't say I "needed" an invitation to a debate. I said I wanted to go to one. Big difference.

What does psychic have to do with anything? I wanted an HONEST answer. Will he vote to renew the current contract or will he vote to renegotiate it? So I didn't ask Pacheco's people to look at a crystal ball. I asked them to explore an issue. It sucks if someone is standing firm on an issue because of they way they voted in 99. Things change, situations change, alternative technology changes, etc.

If a council member gets a vote on something in a different district, then I assume you think that the council member should blindly vote based on ____ ? What? No information? The councilman's word who has the issue in his district?

Don't tell me to "get a life". If City Hall weren't so freaking crooked, campaign-contribution driven and lazy, I would go away and have a content life.

And this is NOT a NIMBY issue. This doesn't just have to do with my back yard. I don't think dumps should be in urban areas or anyone's backyard and City Hall needs the balls to tell BFI they're done with them. Since BFI is unable to secure a bond, your children and grandchildren will be stuck with the contaminated groundwater that will eventually occur there and there will be no federal funds to clean it up.

However, I'll proudly wear the nimby hat. If I don't take care of it - who will? The council member from CD 14 or CD 9? Not unless I visit them and show them the alternatives. I wish everyone took care of their backyards the way I do.

So by your way of thinking anon 1:09, you believe that the new council member should go along with my council member, Greig Smith and simply not renew the contract?

Sounds good to me.

Kim Thompson,

I know this is kind of silly sounding, and on this thread totally off-topic, but check out this article.

Recycling bins that cluck
BELGIUM. The municipality of Diest in Flanders gave 2,000of its households an unusual gift: three chickens each. Why? The birds are supposed to recycle biodegradable garbage. Chickens are omnivores who love leftovers, according to Kippenmail (May 2005), the digital newsletter of the Dutch animalrights campaign Adopteer een kip (“Adopt a chicken”). In one month, one chicken can consume approximately nine pounds of kitchen garbage. In return, it will lay eggs. And what’s more, its droppings can be used to fertilize the garden. Officials in Diest see the chickens as a cheap solution to the expensive problem of recycling biodegradable trash, which costs the town about half a million euros a year (600,000 U.S. dollars).


This would be frought with problems in Los Angeles, but how about trying to set up some contiguous lots where people looking for work can collect table scraps, feed them to chickens, and make a living selling fertilizer and eggs to local residents and gardeners?

The costs for the goods would probably be higher than the heavily subsidized eggs we buy at the supermarket, but, I don't know - it might work if the economics are fiddled with. Heck, maybe the people of Los Angeles can grow the food that goes to feed school children in their neighborhood?

All other drawbacks aside, chickens would reduce a lot of garbage, right?

Sorry, this is pretty much gadly material. I just couldn't resist, since there were a few posts on trash at Sunshine Canyon.

There is an awesome waste company that currently takes some of our food scraps from restaurants in a pilot program here in LA and in San Francisco amd they slurry it and sell it to farmers in Ventura.

But of course, they're from the San Francisco area where everyone is greener thinking. LA lags behind most of the cities in CA. That's why I call them lazy.

In District 14 LAUSD schools only allow children to enter their elementary campuses at 7:30am. Some kids are dropped off at 7am and for 1/2 an hour are left alone unattended to and can be abducted. Can you do something about this before a child gets hurt. Can you please open the elementary schools at 7am. Some of your unopposed campaign money from earlier years can pay for that if it requires extra expense and it would be a good deed. Can you be a good person, politician, elective representative and do this for the children?

Then there's Pacheco, who has:

nothing.

Ok, so Jose has a section or two that aren't active. As important as they might be, you can go to his website and get tons more info than you can if you go to Pacheco's. The only thing that you know about Pacheco when you go to his website is that he likes Mangos.

Kinda hard to talk your trash about Jose's camp not being fully operational while Pacheco hasn't shown much of an online campaign and having just gone through a major transition with the loss of Hacopian (good move on Afriat though, but that's a hard move to go through at this point of the game).

Blog managers can you have a thread with campaign volunteer comments. Inside happenings are much more fun to know then speculation.

Forget all of these fruitless comments. I have some really good ones talking about the two popular candidates who are paying for all of thier own comments. Speaking of fantastic cover-ups, yes, do watch who you work with. There are many juicy leaks from both of thier staff. I was at that forum on 8-18. I must tell you Pacheco nor Huizar were interesting compared to the others, I have never seen such a display of insecurity by both, perhaps that explains why we have so many negative issues in L.A. City, besides the fact there was virtually no one there.

Does anyone know where Eric Robles, former field staffer for Congresswoman Roybal Allard has been? Eric is listed on all Huizar campaigner literature as a "volunteer" yet we all know someone is paying him. No one has seen him at any of the debates.

Hopefully Eric is not being corrupted by the Huizar Inept Staffers he has.

Let's see if any are let go and a real campaign develops. Jose has never had a race like this in his life. It is too important to leave it to theses stooges:

Laura (Ghetto girl) Barrera
Alvin (Time has come and gone) Parra
David (Firend of Albert Robles) Cobb and
Monica (No Experince in campaigns) Garcia

Laura got the job with Huizar as a favor to her former boss, Firebaugh, to do gov't relations... Now an "interim chief of staff"
you do the math.
