Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Friday

The International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW) Region 5, representing more than 22 regional locals and more than 20,000 workers, announced their unanimous endorsement of Jerry Brown for Attorney General. UAW made their decision after hearing Jerry Brown and Rocky Delgadillo debate the issues. International CAP Representative Pat Caccamo said: "Jerry Brown has been a champion for autoworkers and working men and women for many years and we are proud to support his campaign for Attorney General."

Martini Republic has an insightful post that points out we used to use bond indebteness to "build great things." Pat Brown used it to build the California Aqueduct and the University of California. Greig Smith and Tony Cardenas want to use it to fill potholes. My, the ever lowering standards of our time.

Friday morning, the City Ethics Commission will meet to discuss public financing for city campaigns.

City Meetings for Friday

9:00AM - Intergovernmental Relations Committee, Meeting Cancelled
10:00AM - Los Angeles City Council, Recess

¡Ay Caramba!

¿Where is Cardenas when it comes to the Sun Valley trash transfer and recycling stations? Probably Tag Teaming El Gordo (Padilla), and I don't mean that they are in the ring. Gracias Cindy Montañez for helping clean up our communities. ¡Cardenas, como la cagas!

i thought that the one thing rocky had over jerry was labor - and even that's melting - the biggest problem is that we won't be able to get rocky out of our city where he is losing us about a million a week in lost cases...

You don't take out a second mortgage to buy groceries.

The bond, like the proposed tax hike on homeowners (i.e., the $100.3 million/year "trash fee" increase), is a scam. There's plenty of money for 10,000 police officers and to patch the roads.

The City need only stop providing hundreds of millions of dollars per year in "welfare for the rich" -- i.e., grants, below-market loans and free property for developers, or should I say "philanthropists," who contribute to career politicians' campaigns.

Just saw a poll--no one expects to have to pay for the roads with a friggin' parcel tax--it can't even make it over a majority, let alone 2/3rds. Everyone knows that Cardenas is an idiot (and to do this the same day as the mayor is about as dumb as they come, unless he is trying to tank them both), but this makes Smith seem like he might be pretty fucking stupid, too.

Hey Mayor Sam,

Even though you continue to post timely info on Rocky's continuing meltdown as a candidate and city attorney, the fact is that more people post comments on other things, each time there is a mix of items.

Can I assume this means most people have written off Rocky, not only for AG, but as a City Hall player for the rest of his term?

I'd be curious to know your sage views on this.

Rocky's Stomach PunchThe $1.5 million award to a fired prosecutor forces a few questions about the city attorney’s judgment

By JEFFREY ANDERSON
Wednesday, April 12, 2006
For a guy who wants to be California’s attorney general, Rocky Delgadillo has a strange way of showing respect for the law. Last week’s verdict against the City Attorney’s Office, in which Orange County jurors voted 11-1 to award former city prosecutor Lynn Magnandonovan $1.5 million for her wrongful termination, was more than the end to the public trashing of an annoying employee.
