Fun and Frivolity in School Board Race
Now we've heard that the LA Daily News may be investigating Lauritzen. Allegedly, Lauritzen told attendees at a Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee meeting that he is a big fan of the LAUSD's community involvment program for high school students. Reportedly, Lauritzen told the Chamber members that when he talks to the kids he gets them to sign up and work 15 hours a week on his campaign, for which they receive school credit.
Like many of the students of his district, Lauritzen may be guilty of playing hooky. The board member was supposed to show up to a United Chambers of Commerce candidates debate. He allegedly called in sick. Lauritzen's chief of staff showed up and was reported as saying that Lauritzen was away on official business. A City Hall staffer, though, was said to have claimed that Laurentzen was, in fact, at a meeting of the Chatsworth Coordinating Council.
All good news for Galatzan one would imagine.
