Chick Invokes Public Records Act Request

Uping the ante in the LAUSD governance sweepstakes, Laura Chick took Romer's quote about "we've been audited enough" to heart and filed a public records act request to view such audits and reports and assess them herself to see if they are following the recomendations included within them.

Why do I have a funny feeling that A) they haven't met many of the recomendations, and B) this audit of the audits is simply going to trigger the long sought audit Chick wants to do in the first place.

Nothing like wasting time on the taxpayers dime...

I am reading the times articel right now.

Seems there might be an even bigger problem with the audit from arthur anderson. Get it Arthur Anderson of Enron Fame, lAUSD might need someone else to audit and make recommendations for them.

This really was a brillant move by Chick. Now she can look at all the audits that have been collecting dust. More interesting is the fact that we find out that the Arthur Andersen audit made 300 recommendations in 1993 and now 12 years later, the District has not implemented all of them. Yep, more of the the same from the lame District.

Despite her motives and grandstanding, the fact is that Ms. Chick is on the right track and the people at the District are scared.

I can't wait to see who Chick endorses in the District 2 School Board race.

Chick is Tony's pick to take the heat off his donors. She is making a state run soon and Tony is just around the corner. They wouldn't give a second thought to exposing their "friends" - Meruelo, Broad, Riordan, ...... And the sad thing is, these "friends" don't mind being tarred and feathered by the press because if TonyChick make it to the state level, there is more payoffs down that road.

Things will be found, especially regarding the Beaudry Building, but no one will be prosecuted. That is up to Steve Cooley - and he just happens to have the same "friends."

The TonyChick-Cooley partnership has been in high swing since they went after Pacheco, then followed that up with a witch hunt of Hahn, and now that Huizar is in safe hands, they're going after Romer. The irony here is that nothing was never found on Pacheco and Hahn either, but the L.A. Times sure sold more copies - just enough to please Tribune after their risky purchase. Parke, this script is getting old, turn the page.

Antonio/Chick making enemies like you wouldn't believe. Do you really think the UTLA is going to stand by and allow Tony/Chick to drag them through the mud without a fight. Glad to see this story unfolding. In due time I can see UTLA coming out with their own mud against Antonio. This is a reality tv show in the making.

Brilliant Post.

All this is, is a platform for that Cunt Laura Chick to stand on when she runs for higher office. If she really wanted to do something about schools, she would have done that first thing in office.

I guarantee Chick will not disclose the corrupt bullshit Huizar and Antonio did with the developers such as Muerlo and his drug friend Vignali who owns a lot of property in downtown LA. Some of those properties were suppose to be used for LAUSD schools. Will she be forthcoming showing the money spent on contractors such as Romer's family ties? Also, will Chick lay out Jose who was LAUSD president for 4 years? How can no one put some of the blame on Jose knowing how LAUSD was spending our tax dollars.

Sounds like some bitter Hahn/Pacheco losers to me, including you, Archie.

Chick already fleshed out the corruption with Fleishman Hillard and won the City back millions. She's got city managers tightening their belts and scrutinizing their departments like they've never had before.

LAUSD doesn't have much of a leg to stand on considering the horrible stats they posting.

Yeah, she sure cleaned it out AFTER she signed off on a $4 million check to Fleishman-Hillard she had no clue what it was for. She's as corrupt as the people she's going after. Remember LA Weekly did a story on her unethical tactics asking all mayoral candidates to meet at her house to give them a memo done on city time with info to use against Hahn. Yup, this is a woman we should all be very very leary of. She's a snake and as unethical as they come.

Go ahead on Controller.

You are doing the right thing.

Sure 8:45, Antonio/Chick are making enemies like you wouldn't believe. Anyone who stands up and tells the terrible secret - 50% graduation rate - is going to be a lightning rod.

Still, someone has to do it if the City is to survive as a viable proposition. I do not believe that it is politically motivated. Clearly, as 8:45's comment shows, the political downside is 100 time the upside.

A conventional politician wouldn't touch this with 100 foot pole. Jim Hahn sure didn't.

I have no idea of whether her motives are pure but you gotta hand it to her. She knows how to play the game and isn't afraid to make enemies in public. It is a far cry from most electeds in this town who do chase ribbon cuttings and pothole photo-ops to get in the press.

I can't fucking believe that Laura gets the press she does. The Times would report it if she took a longer shit than usual today. The LAUSD obviously has issues, but can anyone blame them for thinking there's no way to win with her? Why would they hand her the bat to hit them with? I'm just glad somebody's finally calling her on her pandering, politicized bullshit...
