"Contract for the Connected"
What is the reward for the likes of Jenny Krusoe
and Lou Calanche
after shilling for the Autry looting of the Southwest Museum and contributing to the cost of re-electing Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, respectively ??
Well if you are partners in the latest "Connected Non-Profit, Legacy LA",
it is your first city contract!!
One could remember the Mayor saying that there would be a new level of openness and transparency in the awarding of Gang Prevention and Intervention Contracts. But the only thing transparent here is the level of inside support from the Mayor's office for the "connected few", that pay the price in shilling for the mayor's pet projects (Autry expansion at Griffith Park) or just pay the price ($1,000 campaign contribution).
Then in viewing the contract above, it becomes evident that Legacy LA was a throw in this contract award when compare to establish organizations as Barrio Action and V.I.P.
There was speculation from community members that Barrio Action (who the "Barrio Pimp, Jose Huizar"
loves to give money to, $4,306, $3,500, $500, and $1,860 ) was forced to include Legacy LA in their contract proposal under direction from the Mayor's office, and with Mayor staffer Abigail Ramirez in constant attendance at Legacy LA meetings, there is some credence to that speculation.
