"You miss me ??"
CD 2 Special Election Blog has a statement
from former CD-2 Council Candidate Louis Pugliese, who withdrew from the race to replace now City Controller Wendy Greuel.
Thursday afternoon, after much consideration, I reluctantly withdrew my name from nomination in the upcoming City Council election after qualifying for the ballot.
Simply, in spite of strong encouragement and support in the district, with such a crowded field of both neighborhood activists and high-profile candidates in this race, I see no clear path to victory for myself.
Props to Home Depot nemesis "Joe B." for the insight to create this medium/ blog
to disseminate information on this important election.
According to the Daily News, City Attorney Carmen Trutanich and City Controller Wendy Greuel have "broken bread" and come to a resolution
over the Controller's wish to have audit oversite in the City Attorney's office.
"We welcome the audit," Trutanich spokesman John Franklin said. "We're glad she responded to our letter about it."
** ......and another dubious honor for the Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa reign at City Hall, "bounced checks" to city vendors.
Instead, they blamed the problem on a processing error by Wachovia Bank. City officials are telling companies who received city checks that bounced that they should redeposit the checks, which are now cleared for payment.
City Controller Wendy Greuel said her office was informed of the problem on Monday by Wachovia and took steps to notify as many vendors as possible of the problem.
But in the words of Harry Truman "the buck stops here".
Your thoughts and great weekend to all.......
