"DISCONCERTED" ELECTED CITY OFFICIAL ED REYES DECLARES, "How can WE REGAIN Public Confidence?" [ED, Did I miss the VOTE of that Position?]


LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL MEMBER (and Antonio Villaraigosa ally) -- please stop undermining the credibility and effectiveness of The City of Los Angeles, as you do when you stated in the LA Times that,

"Bratton's report spent too much time discussing "agitators" throwing bottles but not enough on who was responsible for force by officers "that crossed the line. I'm disconcerted. The issue of accountability needs to be addressed more. If we can't show accountability, how can we regain the public's confidence?" [Elected City representative CM Ed Reyes]

EXCUSE ME, COUNCILMEMBER. You are an elected representive. You are not a political activist. Ed, have you made the final conclusion, based on your report that we can't show accountability? You are an elected representative, Ed, not a political activist...so unless you took a vote of the people, do not say "RE-GAIN" public confindence, unless you have election results that show people HAVE lost confidence.

Otherwise, take off your suit, put on a ski cap and glasses, don't shave -- and give a public comment to the other 14 from ZD's side of the rope. OTHERWISE -- SHUT THE F*CK UP!!! You made these comments BEFORE the Bratton presentation today. But more importantly...you have given people the "fuel for further fire", you big dummy.

"Yeah, did you hear what the Los Angeles Councilmember said? Even HE says they couldn't show accountability and has lost confidence in the police." (UNDERMINE AUTHORITY AND RIOT INCITE, Y'ALL.)

ED, you work for the City of Los Angeles. LAPD works for the City of Los Angeles. It is not good PR to bash your team mates. Don't you know in America, elected officials don't say these things to the media?

Did the LAPD say to the LA Times, "Ed Reyes is being sued in FEDERAL COURT by a former employees over civil rights violations -- AND IT'S GONNA COST THE CITY PLENTY IN OUTSIDE COUNSEL"? (You can minimize the suit, but LAPD didn't blab it to LA Times.)

Did LAPD run to the media and say, "Ed Reyes' LA River project is not even a f*cking watershed. It's just a front to funnel a bunch of money into the CRA project from all over the place -- and build skyloads of high density housing, when DWP cannot assure water to these projects. (See Daily News, Zuma Dogg and LAzy Times stories) I say the shadiness on LA River, runs deep. Y'all will be reading about it here, soon.

Zuma Dogg said (in response to LA Mayor Villaraigosa's "justice/peace" comments)...SO, ONCE A FINDING HAS BEEN MADE, THEN YOU WILL BE PEACEFUL. AND EVERYONE WILL BE SATISFIED AND PEACEFUL ONCE THE REPORT IS COMPLETE/JUSTICE HAS BEEN SERVED? OR WILL YOUR AUDIENCE BE "EVALUATING" THE JUSTICE IN IT'S OWN COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION -- THEN DECIDE WHETHER TO ARRIVE AT PEACE?] ZD thread 5/26/07

So, I guess Ed has decided for the people, as an elected official of the City (without statistics); coming out against the City's findings (before the City presentation); telling people he is "disconcerted" and concerns of "without accountability, trust cannot be re-gained. (As if it is an official city position that it has been lost by the public.)

Zuma I owe you a case of beer for this posting . Ed Reyes is a moron. Today he said "immigrant bashing" bullshit and now e-mails are flying deciding whose side he's one. Yeah, forget that officers got rocks, bottles, steel pipes, sticks etc. for more than an hour but Ed wants to know whose accountable. Asshole should know that LAPD cleaned up his park that he failed to do anything about all the time his sorry ass has been in office. Ed Reyes is another illegal loving, low class Latino who is not educated. Remember the comment about Britney Spears and Madonna he made in council. Maybe a tad pedophilia if you ask me. ED and all those idiots on council are the last ones to sit on their high horses and judge. Their asses hopefully will all be out if David Hernandez and Ted Hayes win next week. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ZUMA.

Ed Reyes is talking about the illegals not having confidence in LAPD. What a bald headed asshole!!! Yeah, illegals are so afraid of LAPD and have no confidence all you have to do is drive around and see them illegally selling without a permit all over LA and clowncil members protects them cause when LAPD want to do sweeps they say no. ASK Sleazy Huizy how many meetings the people yell at him for not cleaning up his district of illegal vendors. Janice Hahn has the nerve to criticize LAPD when her butt parked in a restricted zone and got caught, she assaulted a security officer at a hotel in Century City. Someone please tell Richard Alarcon the difference between the consent decree and Special Issue 40. He too made an ass out of himself in council. Rosendahl you moron don't get so emotional.I thought he was going to cry. Cops were assaulted so that counts for something you ACLU loser. Then, Huizar grand stands like the other balding idiot he is. All these morons have no respect in their districts and are the laughing stock of the nation, more corruption then any other group of council members this city has seen and they criticize. Zine, good for you being the only intelligent one pointing out the main issues.

I heard that the clowncil members who spoke acted like fools as if they were god because the media was there. Don't they read the newspapers? People don't support those damn illegals and the organizers didn't even have a permit when they started walking in the streets. Why doesn't any of them find out how much money these damn illegal immigration marches are costing the city. You figure all the overtime for LAPD, dept. of transportation, etc. must be in the hundreds of thousands. Ed Reyes is a total loser. He acted as if this was his march. He doesn't say shit when the gang bangers extort money from those dumb illegals or when MS 13 kills innocent people but there he is trying to slam LAPD because of HIS PEOPLE. We're in America Ed they should speak fucking ENGLISH. I'm tired of their excuses of why they haven't applied for citizenship. I hope Prop R is overturned, I hope Judicial Watch wins their lawsuit and LAPD will have to go after illegals just like in other cities. I hope Rocky continues to throw their sorry asses out of apt. buildings. To think our tax dollars are paying for all the free services they are getting and then to add salt to the wound we have the dumbest city council members supporting illegals in this city who break the law. Let them protest in Mexico where they will get shot and jailed.

If you all want a good laugh you must watch tonight's council meeting after 3 1/2 hrs. Bratton and command gave preliminary report today. These stupid council members argued for more then 20 mins. after they left on how to pass a simple motion and what to do. Nasty womanizer Zine said his questions weren't answered and of course Bitter Bernie cried like a baby his questions weren't answered. Mind you these stupid morons didn't say shit when Perry called for public comment and then chief left. No one objected that they weren't finished. After Bratton leaves they all act like crybabies saying their questions weren't answered. So Don Jose makes a motion for 30 days to drag this bullshit on to get an interim report. But wait, then Bitter Bernie and Nasty Zine cries they want LAPD back next week. Everyone chimes in looking like the idiots they are and sounding even worse trying to figure out what the hell to do. I love how they all keep saying "the community" needs to have closure and know. BULLSHIT BULLSHIT BULLSHIT. Council clowns are dragging this shit on more then it needs to. The community already knows morons. The illegals are who these assholes want closure for. Everyone send e-mails to your reps and tell them to do their fucking jobs. They have nothing better to do then act like a bunch of whinning crybabies.

I say theres nothing wrong with the marches. all those cops getting paid is a good thing.
them going off like thugs with baseball bats is another issue altogether.

Mr Michael Carrione made the best point of all. If you or I swung a baton at anyone we'd be in jail. its a bad example for LAPD to give. It was a bad call to declare the entire assembly unlawful on account of a handful of 'anarchists'. and you can hear the police radio dismiss them as 'little' and 'kids' when referring to the 20 or so 'anarchists'.
Its simple what happened there, the anarchist 'kids' outwitted and outmaneuvered the LAPD command, causing panic, and the decision to clear the entire park.

those responsible for the decisions have been 're-assigned'.

pay out the lawsuits.

Villa Cri-Cri, lleva el sabor de México
Los Ángeles, Estados Unidos.- En conferencia de prensa, las empresarias mexicanas Teresa Duarte y Alicia Corona mostraron a sus invitados el fruto de sus sueños, el restaurante temático Villa Cri-Cri. En el evento se colocó la primera piedra y para esto, fungió como invitado de honor Tiburcio Gabilondo, hijo del creador del personaje y director general de Gabsol (empresa propietaria de los derechos de autor y marca). La inauguración será en la primavera de 2008.
El objetivo de Villa Cri-Cri es ofrecer a los consumidores, en especial a los infantes, un lugar de esparcimiento afín a los valores de la cultura mexicana. Duarte señala que eligieron la licencia del grillito cantor por estar arraigada a varias generaciones. Este proyecto, titulado Las Villas, también incluye otros dos negocios: Villa Palacios, donde se efectuarán banquetes y eventos especiales, y Villas Medio, centro de reunión para jóvenes.

Failed Bush SBA Administrator Barreto, Described by Washington Post as “The Next Michael Brown,” Joins Schwarzenegger Team

May 30, 2007 8:37 PM  

Anonymous Anonymous said:

Less than thirty days after his departure, the truth about Hector Barreto's tenure as head of the Small Business Administration has come to light. Stories on ABC, CBS, in the New York Times, the L.A. Times, and dozens of other publications have exposed the true picture of the SBA under Barreto.

What Barreto claimed was a "victory for America" and "record-levels" of contracts awarded to small businesses has turned out to be a sham. The real recipients of Federal small business contracts have been identified as a who's who of corporate giants. Contracts to firms such as Boeing, Bechtel, Lockheed, Northrop Grumman, AT&T, Office Depot, Walmart, Rolls Royce, and even Microsoft were reported as small business awards during Barreto's tenure.

The American Small Business League estimates that as opposed to the $79.6 billion in prime contracts Barreto claimed went to small businesses in 2005, the actual number was less than $20 billion. While Barreto was in office, our organization won a series of federal lawsuits against the SBA that forced the release of damaging information proving Barreto knew about the wholesale diversion of small business contracts to large corporations.

Barreto has now joined a Statewide Leadership Team in California to back Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in his current re-election campaign. According to the Governor's website, this organization will "take his message of protecting the California dream to every Californian." It's well-known that the Governor would like to increase his support among the Latino community.

Tour Spotlights Historic Side of Lincoln Heights
Cityscape: Participants find that the working-class neighborhood has architectural treasures.

By HECTOR BECERRA, Times Staff Writer


Maybe it's fitting that 350 people from diverse parts of Los Angeles meet Sunday outside a symbol of haute culture--a winery--to embark on an odyssey into Lincoln Heights.
The expedition to explore vintage buildings and residences marked the beginning of an unusual educational campaign in the kind of neighborhood that architectural preservation typically has ignored.
"Historic preservation in general has not paid attention to communities of color. It's been marketed as a craft or hobby for the rich, of treating your house like a museum," which most working people can't afford, said Alexis Moreno, the 30-year-old director of Lincoln Heights' Business Improvement District.
Organized by the Los Angeles Conservancy, the tour included an eclectic mix of participants--children, teachers, politicians and interested preservationists from across the county.
As part of the campaign, third-graders and their teachers in Lincoln Heights schools will receive books paid for by the Getty Foundation titled "Explore Lincoln Heights--Your Neighborhood." Teachers will be given a suggested curriculum and instructional materials on Lincoln Heights' history, architecture and preservation. Later, every third-grader will go on a field trip to learn more about the area.
The point was to nurse pride that one day might pay dividends in a neighborhood that has at least one area under consideration as an official historical preservation zone. Such a designation would prohibit certain alterations on homes considered historic or of unique architectural worth. Such zones are rare in the central city.
Omar Franco, a 17-year-old senior at Lincoln High School who was one of the tour leaders, said he was pleased with how people reacted. "They were impressed," he said. "You see them nodding their heads and talking among themselves."
"This is the sort of place you just fly by on the freeway," said paralegal William Clark, 55, of Pacific Palisades. "There has never been an interest in getting people to talk about old houses here."
The campaign is the brainchild of the conservancy, which initiated architectural and historical tours of central city communities after the riots. Lincoln Heights, which has scores of turn-of-the-century structures, fit the conservancy's goals perfectly.
In a city that often disdains the old for the new, Lincoln Heights is a tough old neighborhood where 26% of the residents live below the poverty line and timeworn beauty hangs in the balance.

A Working-Class Neighborhood
Less than five miles from downtown, the community borders the northeast end of Chinatown and is bisected by the Golden State Freeway. One of Los Angeles' original pueblos, Lincoln Heights was an industrial hub, and still has turn-of-the-century workers' cottages near Main Street just blocks away from the Southern Pacific rail yards.
For the past 40 years, Lincoln Heights has been home to a Latino working class, and more recently, to a sizable Asian population. According to the 1990 census, the area was about 72% Latino, 22% Asian and 4% white.
"Any preservation movement in the inner city is still in its infancy, but I think that it's growing as a trend," said Laura Cogburn, an associate for the Getty Grant Program, which funded the project.
Lincoln Heights has some of the county's most diverse examples of 19th and early 20th century buildings and homes--including the kinds of houses that exist nowhere else in Los Angeles, said Linda Dishman, conservancy executive director
But when the Community Redevelopment Agency began offering residents home repair loans two decades ago, some changes disappointed the conservancy, which thought the residences had historic and architectural value, Dishman said.
The CRA has provided $20 million in low-income loans for house repairs to more than 1,200 housing units and parts of Boyle Heights since the advent of an Eastside revitalization program in the late 1970s, said Al Santillanes, project manager for the CRA. The question has been whether any of the homes substantially altered with CRA money were historic: The CRA, which long ago hired a firm to do an architectural survey of Lincoln Heights, says no. Preservationists say yes.
Still, whether because of private decisions or through governmental assistance, unique architectural designs were obliterated, wood frames were sprayed with stucco and period windows were torn out and replaced with aluminum ones.
In response to the CRA's campaign, a Lincoln Heights preservation association was founded in 1981. But although pressure from the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood and Preservation Assn. has led to some high-profile architectural preservation victories involving public buildings including Lincoln High School, built in the Depression era, the grass-roots organization has struggled for support when it comes to private homes.

An Architectural Gem Is Just a Home
Most residents live in a Queen Anne or Dutch Colonial or Craftsman-style home because it's a roof over their families' heads, and a relatively cheap one, CRA's Santillanes and preservationists agree.
According to Councilman Mike Hernandez's office, about 30% of the homes in Lincoln Heights are owned by residents and most sell for between $130,000 to $180,000--no matter how stunning.
There may be aesthetic reasons to preserve authenticity, but there's little profit in it for renters or landlords, Moreno said.
Lincoln Heights is rife with architecture that invites fairy-tale names such as the turn-of-the-century "Storybook Cottages" and "The Castle," a home built in 1923 on Minnesota Street and designed by Johannes Bartolowsky, a set designer for Columbia Pictures in the '20s.
Most business owners, however, live outside the neighborhood, even out of state.
It's a neighborhood where an old white glazed-brick and terra cotta federal bank is granted a second life as a successful El Pollo Loco, but blocks away on Daly Street, a lime green Art Deco Department of Water and Power building has stood vacant and vandalized for 10 years.
To understand the challenges of kick-starting preservation in a working-class neighborhood, look no further than the Church of the Epiphany on Altura Street, which is on the tour, and the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood and Preservation Assn.
On a simplified level, they suffer from a similar malady: The church is Episcopal in a neighborhood that is decidedly Roman Catholic-- and the members of the preservation group are mostly middle-class professionals in a neighborhood that is decidedly working class.
Despite its beauty and importance as the first Episcopal church in the city--founded in 1886--the Church of the Epiphany, like the poor who stop at its door for food, is dependent on the kindness of wealthier Episcopal churches and the diocese to make basic repairs.
The church organ hasn't worked in 11 years; the paint is cracking and discolored, and when it rains, water seeps around the stained-glass window behind the altar.
The Rev. Carlos Garcia's flock of about 25 to 40 parishioners can't donate enough money to make many repairs.
So the Colombian-born Garcia has accepted the mantle of preservationist.
"It wasn't an interest of mine, but I've been doing as much preservation as I can one way or another," Garcia said.

Preservation Group Has Some Victories
Not far from the church, four members of the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood and Preservation Assn.--a property manager, a Los Angeles school district supplies coordinator, a financial analyst and a postal worker--met on a recent Thursday in the Sacred Heart Church auditorium. The church itself a Gothic Revival cathedral, was built in 1887 and was on the tour.
Michael Diaz, a property owner and association co-founder, has stressed the need for preservation in Lincoln Heights for at least 18 years. With little money, his group has given annual awards for home maintenance, sponsored tree planting projects and bargained with developers to make sure the structures they build don't wreak aesthetic crimes on Lincoln Heights.
The preservation group and the L.A. Conservancy recently led a successful campaign to get the school district to remove a $2-million air conditioning installation at Lincoln High School because the bulky window units disfigured one of the city's best examples of Depression-era public works architecture.
It was a proud moment for Diaz and other preservationists, but a relatively rare one. It's a moment that has been tempered by such losses as the stuccoing of the Lincoln Heights Branch Library, a 1916 building modeled after an Italian papal palace.
"Any kind of historic preservation in this neighborhood is a battle. Education is very important," said Diaz.

CRA Hires Valenzuela Back as Administrator for Eastside Projects






Publish Date : 05/11/2005

Steve Valenzuela may be returning to the Community Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles (CRA/LA), but the homecoming is personal, too.
CRA/LA last week announced that Valenzuela will become the agency’s Eastside Regional Administrator, overseeing its Adelante Eastside, Boyle Heights, Lincoln Heights and Monterey Hills redevelopment project areas. Valenzeula will be the first to fill the position, one of seven regional posts created by CRA/LA’s recent reorganization.

Valenzuela is a native of the Eastside, born in Lincoln Heights and raised in City Terrace and Boyle Heights. He returned to the area after graduating from Harvard University in 1979, when he began his career as an urban planning consultant before joining CRA/LA as a real estate negotiator in 1988.

Valenzuela later returned the private sector for several years before taking over the Los Angeles Community Development Bank.

The development bank aimed to provide funds for start-up enterprises and other business that held the potential to bring jobs to the area. Such enterprises also had trouble getting financed through standard, private-sector institutions, often due to their start-up status. The bank ended operations when it ran out of funding in 2004, a turn of events prompted in part by several sizeable loans that went sour.

Valenzuela last week noted that the bank managed to generate $130 million in federal funding over its lifespan, however, using the money to provide financing to “hundreds of small businesses, creating over 4,000 full-time, sustainable jobs that benefited low-income residents of the region.”

Valenzuela said he welcomes the chance to oversee CRA/LA’s operations on the Eastside those neighborhoods. He cited several projects in the Adelante Eastside project area, which sits adjacent to Downtown, including plans for a biomedical technology research center at County/USC Medical Center, the pending arrival of the Eastside extension of the Metropolitan Transportations Authority’s Gold Line, and the possible development of the Sears building at Olympic Boulevard and Soto Street into a residential and commercial center.

“There’s a lot of good things happening that make this a really exciting time to get involved in the Adelante project,” Valenzuela said.
