Vacation Time

In an effort to make more time for press conferences and mug shots in front of cameras, the City Council voted 14-0 without debate to approve the 2006 schedule.

According to CNS, the approved weeks (20 days) off include:

-- Friday, March 10 to Wednesday, March 15 to attend the National League of Cities' Congressional Cities Conference in Washington, D.C.;
-- Friday, April 14 in observance of Good Friday;
-- Tuesday, Aug. 22 to Friday, Sept. 1 for summer recess;
-- Tuesday, Sept. 5 to Friday, Sept. 8 to attend the League of California Cities Annual Conference in San Diego;
-- Tuesday, Dec. 5 through Friday, Dec. 8 to attend the National League of Cities' Congress of Cities Conference in Reno, Nev.; and
-- Friday, Dec. 22 to Friday, Jan. 5, 2007 for winter recess.

According to the Daily News, that stat has grown from nine and a half days in 1997 to twenty today. At least this makes it easier to ignore people. Just don't have the meetings!

LOL, Good One Mr Mulholland!

Why not add a day off for Mayor Villaraigosa's birthday. Nothing but Photo-ops on that day.

Congrats Mayor Frank, you made Ch. 9's segment of "Ask the Mayor"!!! For those of you who missed it, he asked the Mayor what he would do to regarding the City Council's bad habits and what the Mayor can do to address them.

It was nice to hear the Mayor refer to you as "a good friend of mine".

Mayor Frank I think is Brian Hay who's letter was read to Antonio Chn. 9. What a lame ass answer Antonio gave when asked what he could do because city council are always late and all those presentations. Like the weak leader he is Antonio said he doesn't oversee or tells council how to run their meetings just his executive staff. What a liar!!! He sure as hell tells them how to vote for his appointments and council agenda items. Passing the buck like the weasel he is. I went to 4 community meetings and everyone was talking about all the bad press city council has gotten this week alone. Keep it up!!!

Vacation Time? I thought you three Mayor Sam, Frank, C.Parker were on vacation from the very beginnning.

Isn't this odd??? I realized Mayor Sam, Mayor Frank, C. Parker were all from the Valley (yes call me slomo).

All three have ties with Rob Reiner and Bob Hertzberg.

Hmmmm???? Merry X-Mas
