Is Villaraigosa Going To Sell-Off/Sell-Out His Own Backyard Community To USC To Help Raise Cash For HIS Shadiness?

A good source of mine, a while ago warned me...Watch for Antonio to start selling off parts of the city land (property) to help raise cash.

And now, a few things hit me recently (like right now), so it's time for a public vetting. Here's what I find ponderous...f-ing PONDEROUS!

a) my source's warning as mentioned above.

b) City is facing crushing budget problems.

c) Continues to create new and ingenious ways to shake down business and residents to help solve the problem.


Some people just called me to aks if I knew how they could order a bunch of those "SHAME ON YOU ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA" banners, and hang them all over Hazard Park for your shady attempts to sell off the park -- AND the low-income housing projects in the area to appease your kiss-ass partners in crime: USC. (I hope they lose every game until we have a new Mayor!) Here's why:

At the Million Trees L.A., Mr. "I Grew Up Around This Park" Mayor Antonio, who said how much it meant to him and the community growing up; now appears to be trying to sell that, AND THE HOUSING PROJECTS IN THE AREA to USC for more USC housing and hospital expansion. So basically, I guess you won't need the park anyway, cause there won't be a community there anymore.

What ZD finds "ponderous", f*cking "ponderous", is why was Hazard Park magically moved into the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council district, when the park is clearly used by the Boyle Heights, El Sereno community. Oh I know why...




I'm too lazy to go back and pull the story, but a few months ago, City Council approved some bullsh*t Eminent Domain bullsh*t -- and the one thing I took away from it; was how the East Adelante area was REALLY, REALLY getting screwed, FAR BEYOND THE REST OF LOS ANGELES. If you go to the lacity.org website, and look at the ordinance -- and see how E. Adelante compares to the rest of the City...it basically says, "The CRA can knock on your door and take your house if they f*cking feel like it."

So THAT'S in the USC area we are talking about.

We all know Villaraigosa and Huizar were trying to sell-out the community, I mean sell Ramona Gardens to USC for a quick buck. And of course, if there is shadiness to be had, you can bet the LA Housing Authority was involved. (ZD will be taking care of THAT on his own. RIGHT RD?!?!) But the community kinda had something to say about it...so they kinda backed off, perhaps, for now.

And basically, the whole community is up in arms in Hazard Park. Antonio's own backyard that he speaks about with such affection, publicly. While he's trying to unload it to USC behind their back.

So thanks to the different people in CD 14 who created this ONE thread. (ZD just typed up three or four different people's conversation into one.)

Bottom Line: There is constituent concern that Antonio will be selling and selling-out his own backyard, Hazard Park because the City needs money; and USC wants to build their own housing and hospital. (USC Expansion)

Only thing in the way...The heritage. The diversity. The community. The people.

Call 3-1-1 and tell them you wanna tell the mayor exactly what you think about this...AND THE DWP RATE INCREASE...AND THE ILLEGAL VENDING IN THE CITY THAT IS QUICKLY BECOMING A MAJOR ECONOMIC ISSUE. THAT'S 3-1-1, and ask for "the mayor's office."

Here's something important to some folks. (Main thread coverage if more info comes in.)

Zuma Dogg hears that there is a movement under way by residents in some SRO Housing Corporation's hotels to demand better living conditions.

Word on the street is that ever since the Southern Hotel opened, the heating system has never worked properly. It appears that when LAHD came to inspect the Southern, they told SRO that they MUST fix the problem. They haven’t.

Is SRO may be cutting corners in rehabilitating the hotels in Skid Row.

The Times has been told (Zuma Times), “as the suit gets closer, you will hear more about this. These dwellings are un-inhabitable.”

(Cups hand over ear)...And now, on with the countdown!

International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers IBEW employees will get a 3.25% pay increase on October 1st.

The DWP Board votes on a rate increase October 2nd.

WOW, GUYS! Pretty clever. It's not like anyone is relating/linking the two incidents.

Just a mere random coincidence...and I'm SURE one has nothing to do with the other.

Do your homework Z-Dawg. The IBEW salary increase was negotiated back in 2004-2005 under the Hahn administration and isn't going away no matter what the electric rates are.

And, if you're so enamored of Ramona Gardens, when are you moving in?

Maybe it is just more of the typical payback vendetta so common with Antonio decisions. This community houses Santa Teresita, the parish and parochial school that has the dubious recognition of being the first school to expel Antonio, way back in the first grade. Antonio has been kicked out of every school he ever attended.

But Antonio should be careful, Hazard is also the HQ of the most active Mexican Mafia factions - they would n't like anyone messing with their "hanging tree" in Hazard Park.

6:31pm, thanks for the update on the DWP negotiation.

regarding ramona gardens, i don't have to be enamored, or move in to have compassion for an issue. the people who call me on my cell phone, pushing me to post this stuff are the ones affected by this. And they are people I love, respect and admire. And even if I wanted to screw-off and not discuss this issue...there IS pressure from people to blog certain issues. I consider it a privilige and a blessing that they feel it makes a difference if I blog about it here on mayor sam's blog...so i roll with it.

But you are a scarcity-fear-based coward, so I wouldn't expect you to understand. That's why you are the way you are. You're missing out on the best part.

Are these the same illegal aliens Mexicans who bring their street vending diversity the community?

I know how Mayor Sam's readers love the "diversity" of Los Angeles, especially the "diversity" of east Los Angeles.

I wish all you Zuma-bashers would figure out that the Dogg ain't making this stuff up. People (you know the ones that are effected by all the shadiness) finally have a voice. They are speaking through Zuma Dogg. They're bringing these issues to him. After all you all claim he's not smart enough to come up with the stuff on his own. In my opinino ZD is much more of a public servant than the elected clowns/crooks we have running this city. Keep it up ZD!!

I say sell the Ramona Gardens projects, and all of the other housing projects of East L.A. they are just breeding grounds for gangs. These projects is where most of the worst of the worst street gang members are raised. These are the gang members who graduate to the Mexican Mafia prison gang. When Mexican Mafia members are paroled from prison many of them return to these same east L.A. housing projects.

These housing projects have been one of the worst social experiments of our country. Do you all remember the big housing projects in south Chicago which were also a big failure.

Mayor Villaraigosa I say SELL, SELL, SELL, SELL, SELL, and say good-bye and good riddance to the Mexican Mafia headquarters.

Sam, good going. You're forced to leave town, the state in fact, because a former allegedly valid political blog has been turned over to these losers who harass our city employees on government time? Wonder why your blog has lost it.

Not the people calling me about it.

BUT, 10:13am brings up a good point, too, if it is true what he says about the area. HOWEVER, the solution is to improve the area, then, for the community.

NOT sell off pieces of Los Angeles because HE doesn't know how to prepare a budget and operate the city.

10:13am, I don't wanna diminish your senitment over the situation there...we just differ as to the solution.

Zuma is this true story or one of those what if stories?

Ask anybody from east Los Angeles where most of the East Los Angeles gangs started.

I also say sell, bulldoze or burn the housing projects, the gangs have been in the projets since they were built. Generations of family gang members have been raised in the Ramona Garden projects.

See the link below


The projects in south L.A. like nickerson gardens are also gang infested.

Zuma will denounce anything as long as he thinks the Mayor is involved. Does Zuma even know the area he is so concerned about? I also say get rid of the Mexican Mafia headquarters. Now Zuma is the protector of gang-bangers because the Mayor might be "shady".

If the mayor said he was painting Ramona Gardens you clowns would be complaining about that and saying he is fixing the free housing of illegal alien mexican cholos.

Oh wait I just heard the Mayor is investing $1,000,000.00 dollars into Ramona Gardens what do you say about that.

Zuma like the other Mayor Sam clowns obvious hate for anything the midget Mayor does is very transparent, they are even moving because of the Mayor. News flash you idiots, Mayor Villaraigosa is not the mayor of every city in Southern California you can move to, Pasadena, Monrovia, Glendale, Burbank, Santa Clarita, Orange County and many other places.

nice spin attempt. actually a good one that might sucker the average joe. this is about selling off pieces of the city.

the story is about the fact that the city is a little short on cash, so the mayor is selling parts of it off like it's his private investment portfolio.

Recently you Brains on the Blog were hatin' on the whole City Council because they did the opposite, refused to sell off bits of land in each of their districts that some of them had plans for (once the economy picks up again and they can really build affordable housing, parks, other stuff) because TOTAL, the lots MIGHT bring in maybe fifty millions and LOTS of local traffic.

Your conservative gospel, the Daily News, started hammering on them for this.

So which is it, the city is wrong for selling land towards city funds OR wrong for NOT selling so they can add to the coffers (for more LAFD, LAPD May Day Melee, and matt/ hunt lawsuits, maybe?).

Why don't you lend your expertise to advising the Cleveland City Council while you're there -- they can't possibly be managing without Team Sam.

5:54pm (obvious defeated crybaby, cause you got it all wrong, a-gain!) I never said a thing, one way -- or the other -- about selling off LA land, or not.

This was my first mention of the issue, as far as I can remember.

And I heard about the concern over USC's takeover of Hazard Park, the day Zuma Dogg, Ed Begley, Jr., Antonio V., and Julie-Louis Dreyfus showed up for that sham press conference kicking off the lackluster million trees la (broken campaign promise). [Don't worry, they haven't forgotten. I wonder if Eric coughed up the $100,000 he promised, that day. I'm not saying he didn't, just wondering.]

And the people who are concerned and contacting me over this issue are people that are involved in NC's, Homeowners Associations, and other involved community members.

So don't lump my first time opinion in with anyone else you weak-ass, propaganda spinning loser.

If selling properly to USC involves a contract, it may not be legally possible. USC does not meet the City's contracting requirements, all those social standards that must be met. USC is not politically correct according to City Hall.
