VillarGarcia's LAUSD $20 Billion Construction Budget HEIST IS ON!!!

HEY MARK "MR. K" GERMAIN: Remember all those calls ZD made to you over the past year and a half about LAUSD's $20 billion school construction budget -- and how you have a corrupt mayor who was sent to heist as much of the money for his political backers so they will promote him to governor? (Well those days may be gone...but he still has to pay 'em back for making him mayor.)

LOOKS LIKE THE HEIST IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!!! TODAY! AT THE LAUSD SCHOOL BOARD MEETING. THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE THE DECISION FOR YOU THAT THEY WANT TO "BORROW" SOME OF THE BOND MONEY FOR SOMETHING ELSE...THEN CAN ASK FOR ANOTHER BOND LATER, IF NEEDED. (Then maybe they can ask for another one, after that...INFINITY!)

from latimes.com:

L.A. board may shift $1 billion to school construction
[Don't worry...they will!]

The Measure Y bond money was approved by voters in 2005 for modernizing existing campuses. [But VillarGarcia LAUSD School Board Wants To Use It For Something Else. So THEY will make that decision for you!!!]

By Howard Blume, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
October 23, 2007

Los Angeles school district officials want to close most of a staggering deficit in the school-construction program by using more than $1 billion in bond money that was meant for other purposes. The Los Angeles Board of Education is scheduled to vote on the shift today. [Let me take a guess...they'll APPROVE to shift this money?]

The proposal, expected to pass, would use -- for new schools -- money that would have repaired and modernized existing schools, improved Internet access and other technology on campuses, and built and repaired preschool centers. Instead, the funds will backfill the plan to build 145 schools in an effort to provide all students with a neighborhood campus that operates on a traditional two-semester schedule. [Because you can't hijack that much of the budget with little old repairs and modernization -- you have to build entire new construction projects to heist that much money efficiently and with no transparancy or accountability.]

"Our hope here is that this is just a borrowing, if you will, of those funds" and the original programs "will be finished sometime in the future with other funds, whether they be from future bond measures or from other sources," said Edwin Van Ginkel, senior development manager for the Los Angeles Unified School District. [Borrow now...people will forget it's a loan, then pass a bond measure in the future if you need more money. And how dare you vote, "No"...IT'S FOR THE KIDS, REMEMBER!?!?]

Van Ginkel added that the bond's wording allows for such a transfer. [It's called "loopholes" and they are intentional. To these people if it DOESN'T say they can't...to them it means they CAN. Ethics/Spirit of Intent vs What they can get away with, those shady f*cks...they should all be locked up in jail for what this new LAUSD school board is pulling!]

But the fine print of ballot resolutions is not enough, said Jamie Court, president of the Santa Monica-based Foundation for Taxpayer & Consumer Rights.

"Politicians will try to use whatever money is on hand to fill any hole they have," Court said. "And in those cases they're often very flexible with 'the voter's intent' when the voter's intent wasn't that elastic. Politicians can't lawfully seize on the fine print to use money where that use was not made explicitly clear."
(Words suitable for framing.)

[Infomercial Announcer: BUT WAIT...There's more!]
Even after all the planned construction, tens of thousands of students will still attend classes in portables.

Justifications aside, a promise to voters is a promise, said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Assn. "There was a factual determination that over a billion dollars was needed to renovate schools where students are going right now. To take money away from that seems a fundamental violation of public trust."

The point is not lost on Scott Folsom, vice-chair of the district's bond oversight committee.

Even after the new schools are built, he said, 80% to 90% of students will be attending schools that exist today.

Still, the oversight committee approved the transfer last week. Its decision is not binding on the school board, which rarely goes against such recommendations. [NO WONDER MONICA GARCIA PULLED THE PLUG ON THE AUDIT COMMITTEE THAT INCLUDED THE INSPECTOR GENERAL'S INVOLVEMENT!!! And Laura Chick appointed (endless non-action report-writer) Connie Rice to the "School Construction Bond Citizens' Oversight Committee" (LMFAO!)]

Folsom foresees another difficult juncture approaching: "We are going to need to go to the voters at some point in the future -- not that far away -- to ask for more money." [AND WITH THAT FINAL SENTENCE...ALL OF ZD'S PREDICTIONS HAVE NOW COME TRUE. F*CK YOU ANTONTIO AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE PUTTING YOU UP TO THIS. HAVE SOME PRIDE AND DIGNITY...OH YEAH, YOU DON'T HAVE ANY YOU F*CKING HISTORICAL DISGRACE! MAYOR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA...THE PERFECT LOOKING PUPPET, WITH THE PERFECT SOUNDING NAME, SENT OUT BY HIS CORPORTATE MASTERS TO SELL OUT HIS OWN PEOPLE! YOU ARE GOING TO HELL ANTONIO! SAVE YOUR SOUL NOW, WHILE THERE IS STILL HOPE TO REDEEM YOURSELF. IF YOU ARE A RELGIOUS MAN, BEYOND USING IT FOR POLITICAL GAINS...YOU ARE GOING TO HELL, BRO! HAVE FUN! (Karma is a bitch, and no wonder your whole life and political career has unraveled.)

Villaraigosa is just a puppet to powerful entities. He has ties with the law firm of Latham and Walkins who have been involved with hostile takeovers. They are not involved in helping the common people, but helping millionaires get richer because they do not have enough. Go to Nelalist@yahoo.com “Who’s Autry’s Lawyer”
Google “Latham and Walkins” and the “Bush Administration”.

Instead to be so narrow-minded about race, we need to focus on uniting. We need to think about US not just ME. As long as we continue to be divided these politicians and entities will continue bleeding us. Ultimately the ones that are going to pay the price are our children by not having the education that they deserve. This will have an impact in our personal future.

The people have been elected, but they "almost" never get the whole truth. It is not "all before the public" because the "reports" they receive are constructed to "shade" the interpertation".

Honestly, I'm shocked at all of you. How quickly you forget. Isn't this the very issue that was raised in the last election?

If Galatzan and the other muppets were elected, major money would be diverted from LAUSD to groups like her hubby's VICA?

We had this discussion right here.

Well the good people, both of them, of the great city of Angels elected them.

NOW you show outrage? NOW you scream foul?

What is wrong with you people? Like we didn't see this coming? Like the sun isn't going to rise tomorrow?

Give me a break.

Me, I'm just thankful that my school still has a shot at the other $3 billion in renovation funds.

Awww Hell, before they get around to the work needed, that money will be gone too.

Have I ever mentioned how much I just love working for this district?

NO ONE ELECTED THEM TO CHANGE WHAT A VOTER APPROVED BOND IS TO BE USED FOR. The voters voted for the bond to be used for what they were told it was to be used for. maybe if they knew it was for what they are changing it to, they would have voted "NO". They didn't vote to let VillarGalatzan to do whatever the fuck they want.

"Superintendent Brewer is planning a separate district for chronically low-performing, Program Improvement schools."

Roosevelt is one of the schools included in this early-stage plan.

Is Brewer trying to provide the community a viable alternative to a possible takeover by the shadiest, most disgraced mayor in U.S. history -- that the community wants NO WHERE NEAR the schools!?!?

Using money designated for maintenance for new construction is great for unions but terribly wasteful for citizens. It is the reason the infrastructure at DWP is failing. It is the reason the roads are in disrepair. If a bond is approved for something there should be oversight other than the mayor and his benefactors.

Antonio always takes credit for others work. Clowncil members hate when he shows up to their press conf. You never saw Hahn do that. Villaraigosa is so worried about what people think about him his people are doing polls every week to see if they're changing and word out of city hall is they're only getting worst just like Bush.

Listen Jeanne of Arc, you seem to be the only one defending the City and the Mayor against the fool's on this blog.

As one of the 'fools, I believe that the only way Villaiagosa will win by 70% will be to hire every democrat, every legal and every illegal aliens in the city, give them documents to get them listed, have everyone vote once or twice like they used to do in Chicago.

I would like to see, a TRUE IDENTIFICATION DOCUMENT FOR REGISTRATION and the same document to vote.

By the way, when he loses, where are you going to get a job, or will you jump ship while the going gets good and vote for the next winner.

ZD, the knife cuts both ways. If Villaraigosa was not so bad for Los Angeles, he would not have to do photo ops patting pot holes. But of course, since he is so bad, your success at pointing out his high crimes and misdermeanors is easy and assured.

If we spend our maintenance bond money on new construction, we can postpone maintenance and justify a bigger bond in the future.

The schools are neglected because they want to keep the general population from figuring out Villaraigosa's new vision and paradigm for Los Angeles: "If you never accomplish what you set out to do, you can raise more money to spend.

Bratton will never run, nor could he raise the money. More importantly, he'd have to resign his job, and he loves it way too much to do that.

Zev will not run because he is risk averse and doesn't need to take a risk. He will die as a Supervisor, and as one person said, no one supervises a Supervisor (of course, except ZD, who oversees all elected officials).

Hertzberg is done, stick a fork in him; no one but Mayor Sam would support him.

Huizar run against his Daddy? Are you nuts?

Laura Chick? Does she have a friend in the world? Nah, Antonio's her Daddy, too. She'd do it, but her supporters are his, first, and she'd never get traction. She'll just wait another term.

Like I said, ain't nobody to challenge him, and, whoever thinks the Valley and the Jews won't support him doesn't understand politics.
