Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Wednesday

The powerful San Fernando Valley business lobbying group, the Valley Industry and Commerce Association voted to oppose AB 1381, state legislation sought by Mayor Villaraigosa to take over the school district.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to direct election officials to investigate possible mistakes made in the failed qualification of a petition to begin a recall against seven members of the Capistrano school district. One of the sticking points is that Orange County officials allegedly allowed district officials access to recall documents that are supposed to be confidential under state law.

LA County Supervisors have approved two agreements to allow Sheriff Lee Baca to proceed with the production of two reality shows based on his department. Supervisor Gloria Molina was the lone opponent to the plan.

Mayor Villaraigosa will appear on Univision Channel 34 for his weekly "A Su Lado'' segment Wednesday evening, then host a town hall meeting to discuss his reform plan for the Los Angeles Unified School District at VictoryBaptist Church in South Central LA.

The City Council will hold Wednesday's meeting this evening in MacArthur Park.

Good for VICA! Villaraigosa's proposal, as amended, gives us the worst of both worlds: less accountability, and zero standardization. Plus, splitting off some of the schools for direct and immediate mayoral control, and imposing a six-year sunset provision -- it would just be a big honking mess.

If he has some actual proposals for how schools and/or classrooms should be run differently, he should pass them along to the LAUSD Board and/or endorse candidates for the Board. And if he does not have some concrete proposals, then why should we give him a greater say in running the schools?

We shouldn't give him any say. I guess LA just isn't big enough for him. He feels the need to tackle the ELI/RICHARD money down for the gov run. He's so transparent.

LAUSD needs to start by splitting into two districts. I guess letting the valley go off would be a good start. We can practice on them.

What is Jose thinking by lowering the term limits for the part time school board members, who make a sad 24k a year, while at the same time thinking he needs to have more time. He gets 150k a year though. I guess that's why they all want to extend the term limits too. Head trips, they are. It's all about them.

Who is VICA and how powerful can they be if I've never heard of them? I know a lot of city people.

VICA is powerful, but, of course, not in CD 14, the absolute center of the universe (NOT).

Do you guys get it? There is a world out here.

Wake up and smell the flowers and stop bashing Antonio and Jose.

Antonio is such a sucker: His GOP friends encouraged him in this school reform stuff -- and now they're stabbing him in the back to make sure the deal he cobbled together never makes it through.

Antonio thought he was smart enough to finesse Riordan and Broad; they signalled early support, and Antonio got way out front of the effort.

Now they're nailing him for it. Antonio stands to lose big on this.

According to plan: The GOP will not tolerate little brown Antonio as Governor.

Sucker!

Wake up you bunch of talk-shit lemmings. These CS politicians need another term just to find out where they can score some more big bucks. The public already has a way to get rid of politicians who can't serve the public instead of themselves. It is called RECALL. Remember Gay Davis?

Latinos are heavily concentrated in large-population states (CA, NY, IL etc.) and states in the Southwestern US. Blacks constitute the largest minorites in the Northeastern states with large metropolitan areas, and the Southern states in general. Orientals and Arabs are small minorities everywhere, save for a few exceptions, like CA.

So the only real White Man's Land is in the Midwestern/Great Plains states. Our last real sanctuary against the minority invasion.

Wow, LA has really deteriorated. it has become home to a bunch of open and rabid racists.

As for Villaraigosa, he's done what he could. Obviously he waned to gain full conrol with direct accountability instead of that board of crooks and liars (and complete failures)that no one knows. He took what he could get. He needs to concentrate on making changes to those few awful schools that he has some actual control over. With this agreement he is really not even as powerful as a board member so there is little he can do with the rest. Teaching and teachers are respectable in the abstract and many are as individuals, but the union is just plain evil, and I'm ordinarily a union supporter.
