MASSIVE Constituent DISSATISFACTION Over DWP's Rate Increase Proposal (A Shady-Fastball by Most Accounts)


It’s been a while since ZD’s Batphone has been ringing off the hook from such a diverse cross-section of Los Angeles. And that’s when ZD knows he has to try and put his massive A.D.D. in check, and try and buckle down to compile all the info and present it to the community.

WHY? There is still time to get involved and find out more about the rate increase hike proposed by the shadiest of shady rackets in town, the DWP! (Sounds as “gangsta” as DPG…Dogg Pound Gangstas (Snoop’s Crew).

ZD Summary: Everyone has heard about the DWP proposed rate increases (that of course are going to be approved). However, there is community outcry regarding the process; and allegations that if they weren’t so wasteful and inefficient, there wouldn’t be a need for the increase. (But the initial concern is that they blew it past the NC’s and even the Neighborhood Council oversight committee like a “shady fastball”.) AND, of the entire oversight committee, ZD can only find ONE person who is for the increase: Charlie Mimms, President of Great Griffith Park NC and coincidentally a City manager and union president. (If I am missing anyone ELSE on the oversight committee who IS NOT against this increase, and DOES NOT feel DWP blew this past the pueblos like a shady-fastball…please contact ZD. (zumadogg@gmail.com, 310-928-7544.)

OTHERWISE…CITIZENS’ ALERT!!! CITIZENS’ ALERT!!!

THE SHADY AS HELL DEPARTMENT OF WATER AND POWER (DWP) WANTS TO RAISE YOUR RATES DUE TO THEIR WASTE, BUREACRACY AND INEFFICENCY, BUT IS TRYING TO DO IT BEHIND YOUR BACK!!! DID I FORGET THAT HUMONGOUS GIFT, I MEAN TRANSFER, TO THE CITY?

SHOW UP TO THEIR “BIG SHOT” MEETING, TUESDAY OCTOBER 2, 2007, AND TELL MAYOR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA’S “POSSE MASTER” JOE RAMALLO AND THE REST OF DWP WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE MATTER!

Now…Here’s a compilation of some of the ‘email tutorials” people have been jamming me up with. And additional thanks to the hours of cell phone minutes people burned up on my cell phone over this! I HOPE THIS RUINS THEIR DAY!!!

CLICK HERE for Shady LADWP Press Page.

Look at the right hand side for the City Watch article, “Jack and his Bean Talk Got it Wrong.” Oops, somebody took that down. No, wait, it’s back. Gee guys, make up your mind. Up, down, whatever wherever. [Original Sh*tty Watch article]

What is DWP Neighborhood Council Liaison Greg Bartz doing? Jack H. is just a volunteer on the Neighborhood Council DWP Oversight Committee. Got to love DWP. Oh yeah, their response isn't even to Jack's City Watch piece on them.

MUCH MORE TO COME...THIS IS JUST THE FIRST PITCH.

ZD said..."What is up with this new city income tax? Do we know where it will be "from"? I saw some "referal" activity (pre-agenda) that makes it appear that they are looking for money, cause they know they are short, right?"

ZD's Tutor said..."Just how "short" wont be determined until Jan.

I hear $3 million-plus.

Election is in February: Not too much time for the people to know what's happening; and what to vote on.

Yes, they need a lot of money:

Repeal of the Utility tax of $10.00 PER MONTH hurt Mayor Villaraigosa.

Its only $4.00 now. DWP taxes going up to 3% per month for two years.

Remember the "Trash Hike' $28.00 per month, I think, for cops we still don't have.

The new $40.00 per home is one tax proposed for "gangs", the City Salary will probably be on payroll.

It is the one which will hurt everyone unless they make less then 35K. Its a long way from 35k to 150k ( NOTICE LESS THAN THE COUNCILMAN; may be no tax.). It should go to 500K (Gross).

NY tax gets people in NJ, Conn, WHO work in NY.

People living in San Bernardino, VENTURA, SAN DIEGO, ETC will not be exempt from tax if they working in the City or work for any business whom is home in LA. That's why most BIG COMPANIES ARE IN EL SEGUNDO.

The Valley will ceded, for sure.

People are hurting; mortgages, rates on credit cards; property taxes; no Prop 13. Recession is imminent. Last time, in 1976, 40,000 people were laid off.

It will be worse this time, as people make more money and are more over-extended than the people were in 1976.

They will be giving rentals away in East LA and Downtown. (Section 8)

Huh, huh, huh...WHY are you trying to ruin my day by reminding me of the shady-stupidity that IS WENDY GREUEL??? (Sorry Wendy, about 14 others are shady and stupid...you just happen to be the one pissing THIS guy off.)

And, Jimmy..this will help me narrow it down. (Did we speak in the past week, or not?) That'll help.

jimmy,

i got a good story (bad story, actually) about a shady non-profit charter and afterschool program that was working in cahoots -- and fired an employee for refusing to "FORGE" signatures, to give the illusion that there were 60 kids attending the after school program, when it was many times, less than 20, in reality.

SO BY NOW...THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE...AND NOW ZD KNOWS WHO THEY ARE.

So that story is next on ZD's post-season deck...THEN, we gotta start focusing on this shady NC BS, as YOU mentioned here -- and there's still that pompous A-hole Bradley, who is ready and deserving of the biggest community bitch-slap to date. He's hiding behind that PROH-LA gang again, so looks like THEY are about to get dragged in, too. (Who's behind the people behind PROH-LA, anyway?)

I'm not in competition with city watch. i kept pushing the bradley stuff to the backburner cause i was working on some other stories i don't think city watch had. but the point is, if city watch did a story about bradley, GREAT....then I can help sustain the effort and hopefully extend the profile of the story and the a-hole.
