THURSDAY OUTTAKES FROM CD 14, THE "CUT AND PASTE" CAPITAL OF LOS ANGELES
1. "COUNCILMAN HUIZAR'S STAFF SHAKE UPS"
One would think that winning re-election would be good for job security. But in CD 14, nothing is never the norm. Activists and posters are reporting that big changes are underway. In the El Sereno office, Ricardo Monroy and Frank Torres are gone. In Boyle Heights, newcomer Paul Vizcano has been assigned from City Hall. In Eagle Rock, it is rumored that a new field director is to be named. And former Campaign Manager Henry Casas is now working for the councilman.
Yet as of early today, no changes have been made to the Councilman web site. Business as usual for Huizar?
2. "CRA/LA ADELANTE PROJECT SAGA CONTINUES"
Activists in El Sereno and Boyle Heights continue their call for the results of the elections to the PAC for the Adelante Redevelopment Project, to be thrown out. This is due to what they perceived to be a lack of outreach.
Also on the radar screen is the role and motives of the USC MEDICAL COMPLEX. It is no secret that USC is looking to expand their complex. Also if the rumored merging of the Counties "Whiteside Project" and the citie's "Adelante Project" were to take place. Then USC could be the leader in the establishment of the "BIO TECH CORRIDOR" along Valley Blvd.
One must remember that USC controls the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council with David Galaviz as President.
3. "ASCOT HILLS PARK COMMUNITY MEETING"
A meeting on the next phase of the Ascot Hills Passive Park, is being plan by Councilman Huizar's office. what is interesting about this is the following. "DID FORMER COUNCILMAN VILLARIAGOSA ALREADY DO THIS?? So why the replay? It seems that once again, our Mayor left another "PHOTO OP" for others to complete after taking credit for just that. There was one "WELL KNOWN" Villar staffer in El Sereno who pissed off the community with her "RAISED VOICE DEFENCE" of all the great ideas that her boss had for the community.
