Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Friday
We reported yesterday about the EAA protest that caused the Mayor to miss his weekly live stand-up on Spanish language news. Over at MS2, we have some photos.
Speaking of the Mayor, he's set to win yet another award this Friday. It's the Distinguished Leadership Award at the Philippine American Car Association.
Remember to tune in Saturday for a special announcement about the blog.
The DWP wants to jack up rates again. I'm calling on all bloggers in LA to get a meme going to protest this increase. The DWP is one of the most profitable but also most corrupt parts of LA government. Its flush with cash, wastes ton of it (like spending money on advertising when its a monopoly and paying for bottled water for its executives when its telling everyone else to drink their water). Assembly candidate Jim Alger (calm down CD12 cut and paste crew, the Daily News quoted him first) says there is no justification for the increase when the department is transfering $200 million out of the agency this year.
