Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Thursday
Mayor Villaraigosa traveled to Atlanta Wednesday evening where he is scheduled to speak at the National Urban League Conference. Former President Bill Clinton is among the conference's other scheduled speakers. In recent months, the Mayor has stepped foot in Memphis, Philadelphia, Washington, Dallas, Las Vegas, Chicago and Sacramento, among other locales.
Part of the promise of some of the big transit developments the MTA has brought us over the years is the potential for business and commerce to thrive around rail and bus stations. Indeed - as reported by Here in Van Nuys - the new Orange Line Busway has done just that in Van Nuys. Hookers are reportedly doing a brisk business at the new Sepulveda station.
The Los Angeles City Council has graciously cut down the amount of time you may address the Council during public comment to one minute. However, if you're a fellow elected windbag like "Hurricane" Jackie Goldberg, they will waive the rule and allow you to speak as long as you like. Jackie took up five minutes of the Council's time telling them why we need to severly water down three strikes laws or society is going to become unwrapped.
EAA, the union that covers city employed architects, engineers, attorneys, among others has fired their latest missive at Mayor Villaraigosa. In addition to the usual policy dispute, this time the EAA has played the "Aztlan" card. Check it out at Mayor Sam 2.
