I Hope LAUSD Brewer Didn't Get Suckered by LAUSD

Imagine being hired as a new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers! Then being told, "Oh, by the way we already have all the team players signed up to lucrative two year contracts, so you are stuck with this team, and can't make any changes/hiring of your own staff.

Well that's what ZD has discovered happened to new LAUSD School Superintendant, David Brewer. I wonder if he knew that LAUSD (quietly, if not secretly) locked down the new school super's entire staff to two year contracts, this past July, and now the LAUSD assembled team, is now Brewer's staff, that he had zero say so in hiring. Suppose he wanted to hire someone he actually knows to work with him at his new job at LAUSD. Sorry, here's the starting line-up...YOUR LAUSD staff, David Brewer.

I wonder why no other media outlet in the City of Los Angeles worked so hard, day and night, to compile this list? So when you see it everywhere else now, remeber, they stole it from Zuma Dogg's post on Mayor Sam. Now, will some of these staffers please go to www.ZumaDogg.com and hit me up with a paypal credit card donation for all my hard investigative work. You're all making waaaaaay to much money.

I was never a fan of yours -- but what you just posted is outrageous.

Even more outrageous is your attempt to profit from the work of UTLA. They've had this on their website for quite some time.

We are paying outside attorney fees out the wahzoo and in house attorneys too.

Reed doesn't deserve that kind of payment especially after he completely chocked on the AV's legislation.

and, by the way, Sarah Bradshaw, who worked for Tokofsky, just got this gig. Yes folks, David lined it up for her because he knew he wasn't going to seek re-election months ago.

The morale of the story: Line your pockets and your friends'/staffers' pockets before you ride out into the Sunset.

Sharon Curry, Asst. Superintendent of Student Integration Srevices, $129,000.

I guess we need to mix the students born in Tijuana with the ones born in El salvador. Wonder what judge from the "NINTH CIRCUS COURT" would mandate that.

Not one of you knows what the hell you are talking about! Brewer has no idea what the hell he is doing and can use all the help he can get! They take someone from the outside and bring them in just because they will look good... if there is a problem here thats what it is!
