Weezy's Shady Corrupt Housing Games
The Weekly says regarding work done on a home owned by the Councilman at 4903 La Calandria Way in El Sereno, Huizar "ignored the law, expanded his house, then used insiders to make things okay."
Finally, the city issued a written order on December 16, 2003, informing Huizar — a man with a planning degree from Princeton University who once worked for City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo — that the house violated 19 sections of the municipal code.A supporter of Huizar's opponent Alvin Parra told the Weekly that:
Huizar’s illegal building case should bar him from serving on the council’s powerful Planning and Land Use Management Committee, a three-member panel that meets each week to approve major development projects. If Huizar didn’t think the city’s permitting process was important, neither should other builders, suggested architect Tom Osinski.According to the Weekly, Huizar has purchased a new home south of El Sereno and intends to rent out the La Calandria property.
The Weekly report says that though Huizar bought the home in 2001, he later changed his voter registration to a dingy apartment in Boyle Heights located in the LA Unified school board district that he wanted to run in. A year later LAUSD gerrymandered Huizar's district to include his El Sereno home.
Is this the kind of guy we want in charge of other people's land usage?
