Meet Mayor Antonio Villagrossa This Saturday at Hazard Park (CD14) for "Million Trees LA" Project

Meet Superior Court Judge Mary Lou Villar's brother, Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villagrossa this Saturday at 12 noon for the kick off of the "Million Trees LA" initiative. It will be at Hazard Park in CD 14/East LA.

The Mayor will be handing out the first 200 (five gallon) trees for people to take home and be responsible for planting and watering. So although, you may have thought the City was going to plant a million trees, actually, it will be up to a million people in Los Angeles to pick up a tree themself, and be on an "honor system" to plant, water and nuture. So out of four million people in the City, only a million of them (25% of LA residents) have to take it upon themselves to make this project a success. (I guess that's why it's called an "initiative".)

But seriously...if nothing else, if you live in the area of Hazard Park (especially if you have kids), this actually does sounds like a fun, civic event for the community AND a chance to meet the next President of The United States...our very own, Mayor V.

Then, only 999,800 more trees to hand out (assuming 200 people even show up).

Zuma Dogg,

thanks for the P.R. pertaining to "HIS POLLONESS" and lets not forget "ANTONIO HUIZAR", tree planting in the lush greenbelt of Hazard Park. Come all and hear "HIS POLLONESS" regale us with tales of his visit to the "CONRADES" in England.

Has Villar done anything not related to polishing his image during the past year?

Nah, he won't be prez as he will never have nat'l appeal. He can get away with his stunts and hide his radical background in So Cal, but he will not play in Peoria. But at least he wasn't pandering and screaming at that phony rally for illegal aliens near LAX today.

Look Zuma, I don;t know what kind of vendetta you have against the mayor, but this million trees program is not just happening in CD 14. I will happen in every council district in the city, AND the department of Public Works will also be responsible for planthing the trees. Please do your homework before talking smack. You're starting to sound like a real jackass, and this comment is commign from a giuy who was rooting from you when you made your entrance here.

8:32, yeah, isn't it funny how Villar likes to portray himself as this gee-whiz old-time Jimmy Olsen type to the media? But put him in front of a the right crowd and all of a sudden he's Mr. Chicano Viva la Raza.

What does the Mayor's sister have to do with trying to plant a bunch of trees? Kind of a gratuitous reference, wasn't it? Unless, of course, she's going to be out there handing out trees...

Mary Lou is a Superior Court Judge?!!!! Last time I checked she was just an Unemployment Commissioner handling unemployment claims. How did this happen?

Mary Lou is by far the smartest Villar - at least the only one able to pass the bar - but her personality stinks to high hell. She's abrasive, bitter and vindictive - probably due to her battered wife syndrome. She bolted from the Legal Aid Foundation of LA after they voted her out of office. She thought she was going to walk right in to the president's office until those bleeding heart liberal lawyers saw right through her. And that's how she ended up at the Unemployment Commission.

How the hell did she get to be a judge. Who did Tony grease? Or is that Arnold schmoozing netting some results? Could this be the reason for the Angelides endorsement delay? Anybody have a timeline on her ascension?

Who's paying for all this shit????

Is there going to be a hanging tree? I definitely would attend the lynching of this evil Mexican traitor!

Funny you should mention a hanging tree. That is the name given to that large tree in Hazard Park up on a knoll overlooking Soto Street. Legend has it that the Mexican Mafia uses this tree to weed out enemies.

Good evening ladies and gentlemen (nods to the room): I say good form for planting more trees. That means more wood for planks to walk!

By the by I had a chance to communicate with my cousin, Viscount Sebastian Cynster, and he was kind enough to fill me in with the on-dits that swept through the room after Villabarbosa left. For those of you who do not know what an on-dit is, it's a demerit for lack of good form, savvy?

The bugger's e-mail was as follows: "It was all rather put on, you know. The food was decent and you had to stand in the queue to get liquored up as we had heard he doesn't "do tea". But the on-dits ran a bit to the left, which does not surprise me; All the while his handler kept asking if Mister Villaragosa reminded us of Blair. Annoying it was. Finally one of the old codgers mumbled "with his ears, he looks more like Charles." Almost lost my drink, I did. Plus his socks didn't match quite right with his shoes."

(laughing) Yes, I suppose His Nibs does look like HRH. There's just one difference, though. His Nibs has never expressed the desire to live in someone's trousers. Yet.

Would be interesting to check pn these 200 trees a year from now. People don't know how to maintain them, and the City is inept in even going around neighborhoods with newly planted trees and giving them a drink once a month. Putting on your sprinklers just doesn't do it. Need to deep water. Wish there were more parkway trees in my Miracle Mile neighborhood, but the neighbors wouldn't know what a tree was if it bit them in the butt. What do they care that a tree lined street, and a lovely tree on a front lawn adds 10 to 15 k to the value of a house.
