Friday Morning Missives

Good Friday morning to all, especially to our dueling elected Department Heads on Spring Street.

The City Attorney’s decision to withhold this important information from public scrutiny is a slap in the face to the people he serves. In an effort to provide the public with the accountability they deserve, I am exercising my subpoena powers for documents and records in the City Attorney’s Office pertaining to the Workers’ Compensation Program.

Since becoming Controller seven years ago and conducting 154 audits, this is only the second time that I have been forced to utilize my subpoena powers, and I don’t do so lightly. Unfortunately, due to the City Attorney’s actions, I am left with no other choice.

Memo to Ms. Chick, that 154 number you cite in your press release should be 155. There is a department in the Garland Building that has the initials of C-D-D? They use to oversee a program called L-A- B-R-I-D-G-E-S? That program gave regular city pay checks with your "John Hancock" on it to someone associated with the M-E-X-I-C-A-N M-A-F-I-A?

So Ms. Chick, stop with the theatrics on how you are going to huff and puff and blow down "Rocktard's Door" and do what many of the community wanted done long ago, AUDIT L.A. BRIDGES!!

****Inglewood Mayor Roosevelt Dorn faces four criminal charges stemming from a city program that provided low interest home loans to city officials. Dorn a ordained minister was a former sheriff deputy, asst. city attorney and Juvenile Court Judge, was a regular on the "Talk Back Radio Show" with George Putnam in the 80's and 90's discussing his thoughts on the Juvenile Justice System.
****We forgot to mention that former councilman "M.L.K." has resurface, that being "Martin Ludlow King". The convicted former councilman is passing the time working with the football players at Dorsey High School. New LA Times Sports Columnist Kurt Streeter does the "hosanas in print" in expousing Ludlow taking accountibility...and falling on the sword for others, in the SEIU 99 Courruption Trial. Then there is something about a late public figure and a lack of autopsy.

****The Daily News is a "fishwrap" in need of leadership. After being "used" by DWP General Manager H(osed) David Nahai, then trying to save face with its "confessional retort", the "MOLDY GREEN SHEET calls upon LAPD to revise it immigration policy known to all as Special Order 40.

****The "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET....for sale" is a "Johnny come lately" to that dysfunctional group known as the "Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council" led by former late Assemblyman Marcos Firebaugh aide and currently employed by Councilman Richard "Zorro Marxist" Alarcon, Jose Sigala. BTW, Sigala is also related to LHNC's David Galaviz.

.........later today, more on the "TROLL FOR DOUGH A-THON" Day Five.

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH RED SPOT....GOOD POINT. FINALLY A VOICE OF REASON. Laura Chick remember ya' all like Zuma would say signed a check for Fleishman Hillard for $4 MILLION and had the nerve to say she didn't remember signing or know what it was for. So Laura get off your damn high horse and go after all the NON PROFITS corruptness in the city. Notice all the non profit directors are driving nice new cars. David Z should go after that story and how people who campaigned and will again for Villaraigosa just got into the gang business.....THANK YOU RED SPOT

If neighborhood councils out there are dysfunctional - they learn from the best.

- A hypocritical, sycophantic former general manager who created the biggest and mostly still unsolved problems during his term, but now spends his forced retirement years criticizing how others are trying to clean up the messes he left behind.

- An clueless appointed Board of Commissioners who, according to today's Citywatch, can't seem to make quorum most of the time, and lately can't because the president of the commission "accidentally" moved out of L.A., voiding the terms of his appointment.

Didn't that LA Bridges give campaing money to 6 city council members? Yes they did and LA Slimes did a big story. They should investigate Laura's staff and check the hours they get paid on weekends to do her dirty work paid by our tax dollars.

9:43 - so what?

Hey, why should the commissioners that oversee the NCs be held to a higher standard than the stakeholders and NC board members? Why should they have to be L.A. residents, only?

If I can live and work in Burbank, but qualify to serve as an officer on the board of the Bumfuzzle Community NC of L.A. by virtue of buying a gallon of unleaded the day of election at the local gas station, and also have the right to spend L.A. taxpayer's money, then why do BONCers need to live in L.A.

(So help me, if someone says "it's in the charter" - I'll scream). It was "in the charter" up until a couple months ago that NCs could limit stakeholder status to "live, work, and own property".

So what? City Council didn't hesitate to change that.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen (removes hat and bows low with flourish, extends hand in sweeping gesture):

Here we are in beautiful Guam on our way to China, where, if you will, the women are as beautiful as the cars and the cars are as willing to go as the women, savvy? (Puts hat back on head and opens up spyglass, peers into it)

Halloo? What’s this? (Puts down spyglass and strokes beard, looks thoughtful) Several observances, actually. (Reclines in deck chair aboard Black Pearl and cracks open a cold beer) To begin, it has reached our ears that one Ron Myers of the Los Angeles Fire Department has filed suit against the City of Los Angeles. Why? (Whispers) Because it was him that blew the whistle and then got harassed for it, savvy? (Motions for Dinger to join him) Dinger, what say you? (Dinger replies with a smile) “BC393180.” (Captain Jack smiles) Thank you, lad. But let’s not talk about that. Let’s talk about something else, shall we? Yes, lets.

Word of the recent paddy-wagon-up in Glassell Park also reached our ears. And while our ears have been straining to hear something else, that something else has not been forthcoming. (Crew looks puzzled) Oh bugger, I’ve befuddled the crew. (Hands Navigator and Helmsman a cold beer). Here, brain cells in a bottle. Now, where was I? (Snaps fingers) Right. It’s been over 48 hours and no words to the effect of “Job well done, blokes,” or “Once again, the forces of darkness that plague our city have been eliminated,” have come from the mouth of His Nibbs. (Crew looks shocked) Really, lads. Did you really think His Nibbs would come out and take a stand against his voting block? (Smiles) I think not, savvy?

(Puts down beer) Sots, I’ll wager that we won’t hear anything from His Nibbs with respect to the Drew Street raid until we reach China. (Smiles) And if we don’t, we’ll ask him ourselves when we see him at the Olympics for while His Nibbs may be good at political shuffleboard, he can’t play ping-pong worth a tinker’s damn. Savvy?

Sigala's completely rabid wife-thing, Lisa Baca-Sigala, was also elected to the Echo-Elysian NC.

Baca-Sigala calls herself a public relations consultant. (don't they all) Baca-Sigala and Associates.

B-S was on the El Pueblo Monument Commission. She's up to her white ass in the California Latino Legislative Caucus Institute for Public Policy. And he's Zorro's legislative aide.

So the inlaw, Galaviz, had a death-grip on Lincoln Heights NC, and the Sigala branch has GEENC by the balls. Power-crazed assholes.

Hell yeah. Grass roots democracy in action. Sign me up.

You forgot to mention that Lisa Sigala Baca was at one time Lisa Torres - she was married to Art Torres's brother and they had three kids together.

Jose Sigala used to take pride in calling himself a "Polanco Protege" - so Lisa, if you are reading this - watch out for those mistresses on public payroll.

It's all one big dysfunctional Latino Poltical Family with Papa Alatorre and Mama Torres still at the helm.

Unfortunate choice of photo, Chick behind that horrible, fat, gross Jackie Goldberg -- her meddling and leftist troublemaking go way back, to the 80's, when she fought with Zorro Marxist Alarcon to not only legalize illegal street vendors, but give them $5000 each to "legitimize" them. Now public opinion is so strongly against the tide of illegals, since they've outnumbered non-Latino illegals in our hospitals, schools, everywhere, that Alarcon is acting openly crazed in yelling at his opponents.

Maybe Goldberg did some good, like for her GL community, but Hollywood was still a total mess under her "leadership" and the Eastside worse.

Don't marginalize Chick by making her look like "just another dyke" to the macho Latinos led by Cardenas and company. Delgadillo's not much of a macho dude on his own but when he's up against her, he's still getting the sympathy of the Latinos against "that white XYX&&F."

So the Captain is saying Antonio will be out of town AGAIN and going to Olympics. People did think it was odd that of all photo ops Antonio chose NOT to attend Drew Street where all the feds, local, immigration were all on board. Does anyone know why he stayed away from it?

He probably was against the raid and would not show up to support it. MAV has already gone on record as asking Feds to not conduct raids on his "people". Getting them at home is the same as getting them at work, only off the clock.

Nice. We have a mayor that by his not commenting or showing up at the Drew Street raid takes the side of the gangbangers.

But don't forget, Mayor Tony said, "L.A. is the safest it's been since the fifties."

What a L-I-A-R.

-but maybe he means "for him" with his city-supplied bodyguards so handy.

You should post a thread about MDs who work in the City jails. I hear that the mayor is backing a nasty plan to lay most of them off. This group is plenty pissed right about now. Most of them have worked for the city for several years. Under the guise of budget cuts, GM Maggie Whelen, has been directed by the mayor's office to cut/re-structure medical staffing in the city. This move would cause police officers to burn more gas while driving about the city to find a jail with medical coverage. Overtime cost would likely increase for officers. The City will end of paying millions annually in unintended cost. Not smart to increase liability and cost! Only in L.A.

Everybody I know is afraid that nothing will happen, medical staffing that the money won't be forthcoming. They can't parole people fast enough to solve the financial hickey.
