The Missing Huizar Video?
Following our story we received word that the Councilman "would like to talk with you." At press time, he had not yet called our office number. Interesting too that in the time that the Councilman has been in office he's never called to discuss a policy issue or current event in his district, nor ever responded to any of our inquiries.
Today, Mayor Sam readers report that the YouTube video of Huizar with his BlackBerry is no longer available. Indeed, if you click on the YouTube player in the original story, you receive an alert that the video is no longer available.
So the question is who took it down and why?
The point is not what's going on in the Councilman's personal life, if anything is going on at all. The key consideration is here is how our elected officials prioritize their use of time and city resources. And our interest is stepped up a notch with the removal of the video.
No wonder people in every part of the City are, well, uh, pissed. Things are getting worse and worse in the City and the perception is the elected officials frankly just don't care.
