Does this name sound familiar?
From the California Credit Union Page:
"Mr. Svonkin was elected to the CCU Board of Directors in 2003. Mr. Svonkin is President of Svonkin Consulting, Chairman of the L.A. County Insurance Commission, Vice-President of B’nai B’rith, and member of the California Respiratory Care Board. Mr. Svonkin served as Chief of Staff for a member of the California Legislature. Mr. Svonkin worked in the office of the Mayor, City of Los Angeles representing the Mayor at community events and special projects. Mr. Svonkin has also served as the liaison to the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission. He coordinated the saving of a historical monument, the Edward Strong residence. He served as Vice-President of the Jewish Federation Council Valley Alliance and Chair of the Community Relations Committee. Mr. Svonkin received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from California State University, Northridge."
Scott Svonkin has also been mentioned on Mayor Sam a few times as well.
Which brings me to my question of the day.
Why is Scott Svonkin going door to door in Sunland-Tujunga trying to get
people to support a Home Depot in our town?
I only ask this because Scotts past would seem to indicate that he believes
in community empowerment, and has been an advocate for social justice, has fought for handgun control,and served as chief of staff to Assemblyman Paul Koretz ( D-West Hollywood).
Combine this with the fact that his employer in this venture is none other than Kerman Maddox of KCAL 9 and Dakota Communications, and I find myself just scratching my head in bewilderment.
The brief bio I posted above is from a few years ago, so I don't really know what he is up to these days, except that he is in our town, going door to door, insisting that people send in a form letter to Councilmember Wendy Greuel demanding that Home Depot be allowed to open.
What circumstances can transform a guy ,with all these accomplishments, to simply becoming a door to door shill for Home Depot?
I await the wisdom of the Brain Trust!
