Finally Sheriff Baca will have some competition when running again. His time is up. He should have never used taxpayer money to buy a plane. The early inmate releases is going to hurt him.

Seems Skid Row has become everyone's dumping ground.

LA Times

The disclosures come as the city grapples with 'dumping' of the indigent downtown.

Anybody seen Nick Pacheco? Is it true that he's preparing to relocate to Idaho and get plastic surgery?

It takes a moron to say something stupid like that!!

Grow up and don't be so damn insecure. People who attack and are mean to others are insecure, lonely, unhappy people themselves. They have no friends or anyone who wants to be around them. Maybe you should go to skid row and make some friends.

Are inexperienced City Attorney(Rockard Delgadillo) is at it again. He's not practice law long enough to do the job and he's only a friend of slum lords.

City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo got a visit at home Friday from tenants facing eviction from the Lincoln Park Garden Apartments in Venice. The Venice Paper says that about thirty of the residents pitched a tent on Delgadillo's front lawn. Two hours later he invited the leaders in for a meeting. Afterwards, Delgadillo came outside for a chat and (apparently) a photo op. The Venice Paper has been all over the development flap that threatens the apartment complex.

I think Nick Pacheco should run for City Attorney. Rocky has proven to be a failure.

So you want Nick? Let it go. He clearly does not have broad community support, otherwise he wouldn't have gotten his ASS handed to him.

Enough with the excuses. Ludlow should support the EAA now. If he doesn't, he's a phony.

Hey Mayor Sam all of a sudden you're getting these juveniles posting on here.

I didn't support Jose but unlike some I am going to support him now that he's our councilman. To the anons posting negative, mean things about people get a life. You're showing how uneducated you are, how insecure and immature as well. Grow up. I'm sure you are one to talk.

When you decide to go into public life, you open yourself up for ridicule. If you get handle that, don't run.

Ridicule people on the issues, their stance and opinions but why attack them personally and their families? Because you have nothing factual to say to debate.

Oh Alex Padilla..what have you got yourself entangled in...It turns out a person you heavily funded doesn't like jewish folk?? Hmmm.

From Daily News Monday: San Fernando Discrimination Lawsuit

"..Aszkenazy accused the council of illegally denying his permit and sued, seeking $785,000 in damages - an amount that could throw the city's budget into the red.

He also accused council member Jose Hernandez of ethnic discrimination, voting down the permit because he believed Aszkenazy was Jewish. He further alleged Hernandez was motivated by vengeance after Aszkenazy's newspaper exposed financial problems at the Latin American Civic Association - a nonprofit to which Hernandez had connections."
