Open Thread for Monday
Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez personally called the Mayor and told him the plan is in trouble in an Assembly committee. The Mayor was advised to get up to Sacramento this week and save the plan. Assembly Member Jackie Goldberg told the press that Villaraigosa's proposal has only three of the six votes its needs to get out of her Education Committee.
This could be interesting to watch. For you political junkies out there, you might see if you can try to connect the dots from this story to that of Villaraigosa's alleged reluctance to endorse fellow Democrat Phil Angelides' campaign for Governor, when nearly every other Democrat in the state has done so.
