Mayor Sam's Thanksgiving Morning Update

Long Beach Director of Public Works Christine F. Anderson has been appointed to an US Army Corps of Engineers panel investigating what wrong with hurricane prevention and protection measures in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. Anderson has help goverment posts in Oregon and Colorado before coming to Long Beach.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has a busy day of volunteering this Thanksgiving with stints at the Brotherhood Crusade, the Chinatown Senior Center, the Midnight Mission and the Fred Jordan Mission. Not sure when dinner is served or the menu at Getty House, but if we hear, we'll let you know. In the meantime, here is what President Bush is having for his holiday meal.

Governor Schwarazenegger is going to take a brief but much needed holiday rest following what has not been a good month for him. He recounts his first Thanksgiving in America in his radio address as well as taking the time to remind us today is Thanksgiving.

Back to Mayor V, don't forget he will be the Grand Marshall of the Hollywood Christmas Parade, this Sunday at 5.

Jessica Simpson and her husband Nick Lachey have seperated for good.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers.

Gee who would have thought we actually have city council members who have guts to go against AV. So to that AV lover who said Jose and Wesson would be a shoe in, YOU WERE WRONG.

Daily Breeze, David Z.....Los Angeles City Council rejects ACLU lawyer.....In a second vote, appointee of Villaraigosa fails to win confirmation to city's homeless services panel.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa failed Wednesday for a second time to collect the votes needed to confirm an attorney who helped sue the city over the homeless to a commission dealing with homeless services.

The council voted 6-4 in favor of mayoral appointee Doug Mirell, two votes shy of the number needed to place him on the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority.

("Oh yeah, we got them, Antonio - wink, wink -- yeah, yeah, we know JUST what to do with them - nudge, nudge")

I think those of you who believe that Herb Wesson will do what AV tells him to is gonna be very surprised.

He's his own man. He didn't need AV and he won't be toeing AV's line.

This I know.
