So Shady, It's Heartbreaking: Zuma Dogg Weekend Recap of Items Sent To My Inbox

Nuckehead Nunez Call on Kevin James Gets Over 2000 hits on ZD's Podcast site this weekend, so far! When a podcast post on my site gets that many hits, that means it a hit with the audience/people must be sending around the link.

LA HOUSING AUTHORITY
(Shady As Hell): The L.A. agency's director has discovered millions of dollars missing and thousands of residents unserved.

When Rudolf Montiel came from El Paso three years ago to clean up the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, he didn't know enough to be daunted.

LA. Unified to get $600 million for construction


HOW FAST WILL THEY BE ABLE TO SPEND IT?


Despite declining public school enrollment, Los Angeles will be able to count on more than $600 million in state school construction funds because of a bill signed Sunday by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, local officials said.

RENTS ON THE RISE --- AGAIN!?!?

Rents on the rise as home prices slip: Some of the increase is attributed to the crisis in the housing market.

While homeowners were being stung by shrinking property values, renters across the state found themselves having to dig deeper into their pocketbooks in the third quarter, according to a report to be released today. full article

CRA AGENDA ITEM ON EMINENT DOMIAN:

ZD's INBOX: Hello! This 10 AM meeting of the CRA Board of Commissioners tomorrow will consider an action item pertaining to the Valley Plaza/Laurel Plaza/Valley Plaza Park redevelopment plan -- namely a resolution to authorize cooperation with the Planning Department to seek eminent domain authority against community based organizations that own land at Valley Plaza and other small business owners -- probably asserting "urban blight" which the developer of course is creating on the 70% of the shopping center he owns.

ZD's OUTBOX (clarification I sent back): Are you saying the property owner who owns 70 percent of the affected area is letting the area become a blight so that the CRA can claim eminent domain and he gets a buy-out? i know if it's cra and eminent domain, there's reason for concern...is that it? If not, what's the angle?

ZD's INBOX (reply): Yes that is correct; State law seems to require that private enterprise be allowed to improve blighted areas before eminent domain authority is granted; Jh Snyder creates the blight; he can end it as well; in fact, we have evidence that he immediately doubled the rent for businesses in Valley Plaza once he became the landlord. He now threatens the remaining land owners with eminent domain which small businesses may fight. We will see how the CRA board meeting goes tomorrow.

PS There is additional evidence that the CRA is in need of a backbone implant: the Urban Land Institute 2004 report urged that the CRA, not the MTA, take a leadership role in the redevelopment of NoHo. MTA has in fact chosen the developer for the land it owns in NoHo. CRA adopted new design guidelines for NoHo only days before the MTA vote for "Art Wave." LA Weekly did a nice article on this vote.

CRA has never responded to the Rec and Park Commissioners who wanted a report on the proposed demolition of 5 acres of dedicated park land that Jh Snyder wants at Valley Plaza. Report is 4 years overdue.

VIllaraigosa's Shady (Illegal?) Phone Tax Scheme:

ZD's INBOX: Is Villar lying? Current rate at 4% not 10%. That was repealed. Now he says 9% is OK.It was $4.00 per $100. bill 8 months ago. It was raised to $10.00 (after they put the 10% on by Villar). Repealed by the Judge which returned it to $4.00. May be found in whatever code had all of the charges of the city administrative or municipal code; or the legal decision to repeal the 10.00% should say it was returned to 4%.

RE: ALL 15 CMs VOTING "YES" ON VILLAR'S SHADY PHONE TAX:

Reading between the lines, I think they want the dumbass mayor to go out on a limb with this phone tax.

ZD's Strategy Deputy feels Zine is not for it, but he didn't want it on his head that services "ARE GOING TO GET CUT". (Whether that would actually happen, or not...the mayor "guilted" him into it.)

Perhaps Council actually believes it will get voted down, anyway (even though it will cost over $5 million) -- and Villaraigosa will get blamed for the whole mess -- and not Zine (if he kept it from a vote, and services got cut.)

Montiel is the one who needs to be watched. Montiel is spending millions to go after the fraud.Why are those supposed evil doer cases like Loyce's being thrown out of court, yet even more fraud is coming out under Montiel's watch?

Montiel owes LA Slimes reporter Jessica Garrison part of his salary for helping to keep him on the job.

Garrison should call around El Paso and find out the real story there when he left.

The use of the word "creep" is positively brilliant.

That is exactly how the parents and kids see ZD.

Look, I've had to stand next to the guy at City Council and I can tell you that he positively reeks of B.O. so the poster who says he doesn't smell must have impaired nasal sensory perception.

This guy loves the term "clowncil", but seriously, does he not look like a clown himself? Y'all judge.

That's another thing; does anyone seriously believe that saying "y'all" makes you feel black? Yet, he countinues to try to be like Eminem, another wanna be.

I guess everyone is entitled to a defense, no matter haw silly or insubstantial it may be, so let's just let the rest of the three readers judge.

Or, will he delete this post as well? He's quite insecure, so many posts criticizing him get deleted. Often, I read someone's post and later, it is just disappeared.

But deleting posts doesn't make you smell good, or look right, or sound logical; it just confirms what we all know - that you are a born loser. Actually, you do know it yourself, having shucked your real life for a weird personna.

That's what losers do.

So, you delete, I'll post. I'll post. You delete. But people get the idea, insecure loser.

MAYBE YOU HAVE IMPAIRED OLFACTORY SENSES!

I'm sick of your CONSTANT ATTACK on Zuma Dogg. If you dont like him, dont read his posts. YOU are making the rest of us tired trying to find if you have something of value to say.

I would ask that you be deleted every time you have nothing to say that contributes to this post. I DONT CARE IF YOU THINK ZUMA SMELLS, I dont care if he does smell! What I learn from HIM IS MY COST FOR LEARNING. WE can use perfume IF WE THINK HE SMELLS.

Give him a $20.00 on Pay Pal the rest of us do. Some one has to help him pay for his phone, his computer, his bus fare, AS HE PROVIDED A PUBLIC SERVICE.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR MY COMMUNITY? WHAT DO YOU GET FOR ATTACKING HIM BESIDE THE SALARY YOU RECEIVE AT TAXPAYER EXPENSE?

ZD: Just continue to do the GREAT JOB you are doing for this community. You have the backbone and ethics that L. A. City officials lack. If they are sending their lap dogs to attack you, is because you are exposing them and that is hurting them terribly. It is time to demand transparency from these city officials. It is time to make them accountable.

7:31am,

Do you feel better about things?

Man, when you attack smell...you're REALLY winning the battle.

So I guess everything I say is TRUE! (It's just I smell bad when I am saying it.)

But Antonio and City Council smell good when they do the things THEY are doing.

And please find me referring to Council as "Clowncil." I don't think I use that term?

DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TURNING PEOPLE AGAINST ME? You are exposing any credible chance you have of spinning me. MEANWHILE...to the person who says I don't smell bad...maybe you caught me on a good day! YOU DON'T SMELL TV APPERANCES AND BLOGS, Y'ALL!!!

O.K.

Yes, ZD, continue and intensify the attacks!!!

You already have assembled an army of four people who think you do a great job. That ought ot be sufficient reason for you to continue to waste your life tilting at windmills, exposing things that everyone knows about that has a semblence of experience with government, and ridiculing elected officals who actually accomplish things.

You are the man, ZD, and if the $20.00 donations to paypal don't buy enough gas, bus fares, coffee or food, don't worry, because at least it is keeping you off Venice Beach and not scaring the kids and old ladies.

ZD, here are:

LAUSD TEN COMMANDMENTS (For all personal except those that are ethical):

1- CYO (Cover you’re a…) do whatever you must to come out clean even if is your dirt.

2- STUDENTS MUST ATTEND SCHOOL EVERY DAY (Every child has a money sign on their head) No child attending school means, no money on our packets. It doesn’t matter if the teacher is absent that is not our concern.

3- IF A PARENT ASKS YOU A DIFFICULT QUESTION refer them to someone else, and else and else until they get tired and give it up.

4- BE AN EXPERT ON DECEPTION. If someone asks you a question that you do not want to answer spin them around in circles until they forget their question.

5- HAVE THE PARENTS FOLLOW PROCEDURE that is the best deception. It takes the effort finding who to contact, knowing how to write a letter and writing one, go through all the levels of administration and waiting for answers that never come. LAUSD is very good at playing ball.

6- SHOW THEM YOUR TEETH. (Principals) Behind close doors show parents you are the boss. They will take their kids out of school or they will leave you alone.

7- PROMOTE PARENT INVOLVEMENT, but set all kinds of hurdles so they do not get involved, we do not want them nosing around and start trouble.

8- USE THE SCHOOL POLICE is a great deterrent to PARENT INVOLVEMENT. Make the parents look stupid or claim they are verbally abusive.

9- USE OUR EXPERTS, NO OUTSIDERS. We have to keep the money for us big fish, not for the students.

10- RAISE THE SCORES OF THE PROFICIENT STUDENTS so we look good, who cares about those left behind.

This country texas bumkin think he can come to a big place like L A and run such a stupid game,yes when you have the mex in charge mayor along with other hispanic leaders and politicians void of ethics and the house blacks that never stand up for their own or for right. They have a fear of being accused of racism.

This Rudy Montiel has tricked Jessica of the LA Slimes to give him a front page platform to tell numerous lies. If any of this yada yada is true it only happened under his watch and he created the faulty system that it happened under. Jessica you failed to ask some obvious simple questions. For instance How does anyone appear to be stealing by writing checks to theirselves. Did you get to view at least one case senario where a 1099 was returned and it appeared that it was due to fraud. this is at least a sloppy reporting job. I am not finished with you but I must go to a meeting

The phone tax is a temporary tax that is due to drop completely (except for the 4%) the additional 10% time as elapsed and should go away. But not if the Alcalda has his way, Tony wants that money. We will probably get stuck with it permanently, so much for temporary taxes to fix a specific problem. This also raises the question of how legitimate was the tax in the first place. If the money was for a specific project and that project is done there shouldn't be a lose of services? The City budget wouldn't miss money that went to a project unless the money all along went into general coffers and not to what they said it was for???
Our City officials wouldn't do that would they?

Sooo, who was the consultant that found all the corruption? that would not be the same consultant that got the job to fix the system? You pay someone to say that the system is broken and then you give them the job? I bet ya that the procurement was rigged on this one. Maybe HACLA needs to get some real consultants, as in the alleged check gizmo, can you just get the bank to get copies of all checks? This would be cheaper than paying seven million dollars to sleazy attorneys! Isn't Montiel some sort of engineer? why doesn't he go and get what work was done and figure the costs? he questions work done at Jordan Downs because of the way that it looks. You know why? no one is caring for the project. Parts of the project had been commandeered to the gangs??? yes, but this was under Montiel, not under anyone else. A high-level staffer resigned because he cut a check for himself?? But Montiel, that happened under your clock!

So Montiel left El Paso Housing Authority a better place? what did he tell the times he did? Montiel left a trail of destruction and accomplished nothing. He left El Paso because he had rifted against the Mayor and the city council. Yes, he actually had attorneys for the Authority fight vs. the elected in El Paso. He burned his bridges and all because he wanted one company to get the job and that was "Investment Builders". Don't be surprised to see that they come from El Paso to do some large jobs for HACLA.

There is something that Montiel can do. That is to do the talk but he cannot do the walk. He chooses to tell what is convenient and that is placing the blame on others. This is how he covers for his incompetency. After three years a true leader would have that place in order. Only him believes that he is a true catholic. Montiel needs to do the right thing and resign, maybe then, he may still have a chance of going to heaven.
