Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Tuesday

We hope all of you had a great holiday!

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has appointed City Controller Laura Chick to the California State Bar Association’s Board of Governors. The State Bar is governed by a 23-member Board of Governors. Fifteen are lawyers elected by members of the State Bar. A 16th lawyer is elected by the California Young Lawyers Association (CYLA) Board of Directors. Since 1977, the State Bar has operated with increased involvement by the public. Beginning that year, six "public" or non-lawyer members were appointed to the Board of Governors - four by California's governor, one by the state Senate Committee on Rules and one by the Speaker of the Assembly.

Home prices are in the news. While Martini Republic picks up on the news that the median price for homes on the Westside has dropped nearly $150K in the last year, the San Fernando Valley Business Journal says on the other hand most communities in the San Fernando Valley are seeing an increase in prices in the last month alone. Finally, some people who can't afford homes on the Westside or the Valley are heading out to the Victor Valley where gleaming new homes go for at least half the price of most homes in LA. That is, much to the chagrin of the locals who've been there for a while.

Govenor Schwarzenegger broke his leg in a skiing accident in Idaho and checked into a Los Angeles hospital Monday where he will undergo surgery. Schwarzenegger broke his right femur, or thighbone and will undergo non-emergency surgery.

LA City Nerd reports that there may be buried treasure in City Hall. When the building was first constructed in 1927 a time capsule was included in the corner stone. Included in the items placed in the capsule were three nuggets of gold. However, when the building was restored in 2001, city officials say no time capsule nor any gold was found. Where could it be? Sounds like a case for Captain Jack Sparrow.

Last Friday was the final day of business for Tower Records at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. Rumor has it some type of upscale furniture store is taking the space. Click here to see the Galleria's online tribute to the legendary store.

And finally, to make the case that blogging has truly empowered the citizen-journalist to report on things the news media would never pick up - Here In Van Nuys reports on a neighborhood holiday party in the central San Fernando Valley 'burb.

I'm shocked at Arnold picking the worst controller Laura Chick N Shit for this position. The LA Slimes also said she was doing a great job!! Please!!!! This woman is in it for herself and like Antonio loves the camera. Why hasn't she audited DWP or the gang programs that have cost tax payers over $82 million wasted?????? Could it be many of the gang programs have a connection directly back to politicans and the mayor? Yes they do.!!! Why didn't the media report Laura Chick N Shit audited the LAFD in 2004 yet allowed the same problems her audit mentioned without doing a thing????? Kiss butt media is ridiculous. We need more great reporters like David Z because I hate to think of 2007 left with tabloid idiots like we have now.

*MEMO TO THE "LA ANTONIA TIMES"

Sad, sad day for our "DEAR LEADER" Polloraigosa. All he wanted was to return to his old school and bask in the glory of the signing of AB 1381. Yet, those "MEAN BULLIES" at the Board of Education will not allow for the photo opp. with the "KENNEDY REPUBLICAN". "Their actions speak for itself" said Gabriel sanchez, a spokeman for Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, feeling the pain of our "DEAR LEADER". Scribe Blume give Pollo no love by their minute story at the bottom of B-4. POLLORAIGOSA, we feel your pain, the chance to relive Those thuggish young days has been denied you.

But more important, the students of Roosevelt, are safe from the political theatrics of Michael Trujillo. please remind "MIKIE" that his false statement to LAUSD and that matter of endangering the health of children at Foeshay, is the reason you are being denied the chance to chant "YES WE CAN" at your old school.

Here's some more info re Aguilar....

He is the only person listed on TITLE. All mail for the school goes to Aguilar's home address in Alhambra. LA RAZA Development Corp. borrowed $185,000 on the property on Huntington Dr. South last year.

The property was purchased in 2001 for $800,000. It was an ALL CASH purchase from a Mr. Vasguez. Vasquez only owned this property for 6 MONTHS, AND HE ONLY PAID $250,000 for it!!!!!!!

Vasquez made a tidy profit of $550,000 IN A PERIOD OF SIX MONTHS.

This school bears further investigation. An audit must be one because it looks like some heavy duty embezzeling is taking place. We have to follow the money trail, and you can bet it will lead to Aguilar's best friend, AV. Not to mention Jose Huizar.

POCKETS ARE BEING LINED, MY FRIENDS. AND IT WILL BE A SHOCKER!

THIS IS SO BIG IT WILL BRING VILLARAIGOSA DOWN, ALONG WITH ALL THE MEXICAN MAFIA.

Don't be ashamed to be Latino, look at all the facts first. Antonio and most of those "Latinos" in office right now gave up their ethnic credentials when they hired non-Latinos to be their consultants, fundraisers and campaign managers. Just look at the list, not one Latino among these power brokers that pull all the strings. They tend to be of a certain ethnic demographic, but I don't want to name it for fear of being labeled an anti-semite because some of my best friends are Jewish. These political advisors have turned Latino politics on its head and strive to decrease turnout instead of increasing it - ever wonder why less than 1 in 10 of those ellgible to vote actually do in Latino politcal races? And this goes way back - check and see who was pulling Alatorre's, Hernandez' and Alarcon's srings - non Latinos.

History will judge all these politicians. We are in a dark era with regards to Latino politics. But here is a light a the end of the tunnel. Don't group these "vendidos" into our category just yet. Find out first where their true loyalties stand.

MAYOR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA
City of Los Angeles

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 21, 2006

Contact:
Janelle Erickson
(213) 978-0741

STATEMENT FROM MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA REGARDING THE COURT'S RULING ON AB 1381, THE ROMERO ACT

LOS ANGELES - Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa made the following statement today after the court's ruling on AB 1381, The Romero Act.

I want to thank Judge Janavs for her consideration of this case. But I also want to stress, this is one judge's opinion.

Today's ruling may seem like a disappointing setback for our kids and their families, but I want to be absolutely clear, we will not be set back.

I've learned over a lifetime of ups and downs, that the only way to reach your dreams is to pick yourself up and go forward with courage and confidence.

And I want to say to the parents and students of LA Unified*I want to say to every child in Los Angeles, we are picking ourselves up today and we are dusting ourselves off.

I promise you, we will not be deterred. We intend to fight for your futures. We refuse to be defeated by the forces of the status quo. We will be filing an immediate appeal, and we intend to prevail.

I am directing our attorneys to make an immediate notice of appeal to the Superior Court and to file a request that the Court of Appeals expedite the hearing of this case. We are reviewing all of our options, including the possibility of a request that the Supreme Court hear the case directly and forthwith.

Any lawyer will tell you, cases like this one - in which there is no clear controlling precedent - are ultimately decided on appeal.

In the meantime, we intend to move forward. We will continue our planning and preparations to give the Mayor's Community Partnership Schools a running head start when they open in the next academic year. We will continue to engage parents, teachers, business leaders and members of the community in the selection, design, planning and implementation of cluster school sites and educational strategies. And we will continue to reach out to all of the mayors and to all of the communities of L.A. Unified in the important work of education reform.

I believe we have the law on our side. I believe we have the Constitution on our side. More than that, I believe we have the people on our side.

Supporting our efforts is an historic partnership bridging business and labor, bringing together parents, principals, teachers, and students. Our partnership intends to fight for fundamental change in our schools on every possible front and using every tool at our disposal.

We will not only appeal this case in the courtroom, we will also move aggressively forward challenging the business and philanthropic communities to join the difficult and noble work of reclaiming and rescuing our lowest-performing schools.

We will continue to reach out to Superintendent Brewer, to engage him in partnership. I believe he is good man. I believe he is a change agent. I believe he needs to be empowered to lead fundamental change in LAUSD.

And make absolutely no mistake about it, we intend to make our case at the ballot box. We'll be supporting candidates in the March School Board elections who are committed to leading reform.

Leaders who believe in cutting the bureaucracy that has ballooned in the last four years.

Leaders committed to putting those dollars to work for kids in the classroom.

Leaders who will expand school hours and after school opportunities, and who will make sure that every school in Los Angeles is clean and safe.

I want to reiterate the call to the School Board, and to every teacher, principal, parent, business leader, labor leader, and to every resident of Los Angeles: join our reform effort.

We can't let another school day or academic term go by.

We can't continue to fail these kids.

We can't accept these dismal dropout rates.

We need once and for all to bring the entire community of Los Angeles together to face up to our biggest challenge.

Thank you all.

December 26, 2006 for Immediate Release

Proposition R back to court -- hearing date set.

WHO:
David Hernandez SFV Community Advocate--Ted Hayes City of Los Angeles Homeless Advocate.

WHAT:
Proposition R is now scheduled to return to Los Angeles Superior Court.
WHEN:
The hearing date is now set for January 25, 2007.

WHERE:
Stanley Mosk Court House 111 No. Hill St. Los Angeles, CA.90012



Los Angeles,

Prop R, the controversial proposition which extended the term limits for Los Angeles City Council members, returns to court for constitutional review.

The Proposition described by some as Ethics Reform written for Lobbyists by Lobbyists will once again undergo judicial scrutiny to determine if the measure presented to the voters violated the California Constitution. The combining of two issues in one measure is prohibited by the State Constitution. Prop R combined the extension of City Council Term limits with Ethics Reform.

The proposition, previously adjudicated in a Los Angeles Superior Court, was found to be in violation of the two issue restriction of the California Constitution and therefore unconstitutional. Judge Robert O’Brien ordered the proposition off the November ballot.

The decision was appealed by the City of Los Angeles and a hearing date was set. Because the hearing date was after the election, the appellate court judge ordered it back on the ballot. There was no further ruling issued by Judge O’Brien. It was only returned to the ballot pending the outcome of the appeal.

Prior to the hearing, the petitioner withdrew his action and the case was dismissed. No ruling was issued by the Court of Appeals.

The January 25, 2007 hearing will be in Department 85 and will be heard by Judge Dzintra Janavs.

Judge Janavs is no stranger to high profile cases and recently ruled on the constitutionality of AB 1381, the bill which transferred power over LAUSD from the LA School Board to the Mayor of Los Angeles. Judge Janavs ruled AB 1381 did violate the California Constitution.

Judge Janavs has served on the bench for over twenty years.

David Hernandez and Ted Hayes who are challenging the constitutionality of Proposition R are represented by Attorney Candice E. Jackson.

David Hernandez and Ted Hayes - Once you win the Prop R challenge, there may be a tremendous amount of national attention on the clowncil's sleazy attempt to deceive us. This could wake up and empower many of the apathetic LA residents who think nothing can be done to create change. I can't think of a more delightful way to start the new year! Thank you and Happy New Year!
