David Hernandez on the Las Lomas lawsuit
David Hernandez said:
Las Lomas Lawsuit-Super Majority
The remarks of Council member Smith hit at the very core of Los Angeles Politics and deserve repeating for all to see.
"It is appalling that Mr. Palmer would sue the city after being denied by a super-majority of the City Council," Smith said in a statement.
Mr. Smith, was it not a “super-majority” of the Council who ignored the City Attorney and put Prop R on the Ballot?
As a resident of Los Angeles, I welcome Mr. Palmer to the ranks of those who side with the Law rather than the “Super-majority”.
Sorry Mr. Smith, this is America not the Soviet Union.
With Las Lomas, as in Prop R, the City Council ignored the extensive report from the Los Angeles City Attorney and then relied on the City Attorney to defend their actions.
Using tax payer funds against the very people who’s Constitutional Rights you want to violate is a clever scheme.
The Las Lomas Challenge will, via discovery give Los Angeles residents a unique insight to the back room dealings of its elected officials, Santa Clarita Lobbyist and other Special Interests Groups.
Even though many of those opposing Las Lomas are friends, I must say “let the chips fall where they may”.
We did not have to agree on the project and might not disagree, but you did have an obligation to follow the law.
