** Special Outtake from CD 14, Where "Cut and Pasting" leads to Political Office and Public Employment

Hola!! and post Mexican Independence Day Hangovers from all in the "Cut and Paste Barrio" of Cuidad de Los Angeles.
It is with pride that we can report here that one of the well-known figures in CD 14's "cut and paste folklore" has a new gig. We hand it over to CD 14 Political Satirist of Wit "Parque Esqueleto" to provide the details.
Er, Red Spit, what's with all this CD2 malarkey? Have you forgotten that it was the great CATORCE that made you infamous?
Why no mention of THIS news item??
(Or did you forget to tip the paperboy again last Xmas?)
Eastern Group Publications reports that as of last week the principality of Montebello is now CD14-EAST (even more so than ever before). Not only is former CD-14 losing campaign manager Robert Urteaga a city councilman there (and its Mayor P-T), but his former boss and one-time LA Councilman Lauro "NICK" Pacheco has been named Interim (asst.) City Administrator, so he can slide into the full-time spot when Montebello's current City Administrator retires in a couple months.
Got that? "Tricky Nicky" is back in the employ of the taxpayers.
Did Robert U. set all this up?
NAH, of course not, he says. A complete coincidence.
Get ready for numerous Montebello vacancies (current and soon-to-be created) to be filled with CD-14 related personalities.
Next we'll hear that ex-pat (read: "thrown out") Limey John Edwards has been named the Press Spokeshole for that City.
After that, ever-present 8-time loser ex-con Art Pulid-ito will no doubt be crowned GANG CZAR and part-time errand boy for Montebello. He'll immediately set about to lower the gang crime rate by funneling thousands of dollars of city revenue directly into the bank accounts of Mongols and other local gang members who will promise to ONLY kill people outside the city limits.

Here is the link to the Eastern Group Publications story pertaining to the breaking developments in Montebello.
It is a good day when the former defeater of South Pasadena Carpetbagger Victor Griego, who was overwhelmed by numerous ACORN "streetwalkers", with help from some bad "cut and pasting" by his own campaign staff, who went the "ARRRT SNNNYDER Route" and last was seen pimping "extreme cholo makeovers", get a chance for a new gig on the public dime.
"Mijo Beto Urteaga" should be commended for looking after his PAPI.
Your "cut and paste" comments............

Pacheco Named To Montebello City Post

By EGP News Service

The Montebello City Council hired attorney and former Los Angeles City Councilman Nick Pacheco as Interim Assistant City Administrator with a 3-1 vote in closed session at the Sept. 9 City Council meeting. Councilwoman Mary Ann Saucedo-Rodriguez was absent from the meeting.

Pacheco is filling a position vacated in April by Diane Albert. He recently represented the city in handling a claim filed by thirteen police officers against Police Chief Dan Weast.

Councilman Bill Molinari, who cast the dissenting vote in hiring Pacheco, said he hopes the city would pursue a more formal recruitment process than the one that was taken prior to this decision.

“There was one name put forth. I saw no resume, no contract, just simply a decision to bring an individual with nothing and no one to compare his qualifications to and I just don’t think this is in the best interest of the city,” he said at the council meeting.

The hiring of an interim assistant city administrator is the first of several actions the city is taking to fill vacant seats. A recruitment process has been started to fill the city administrator and finance director positions.

Finance Director Michael Tam retired earlier this year, and City Administrator Richard Torres announced to council and staff this summer that he would retire in November.

These positions, along with the assistant city administrator’s position were discussed in closed session at the Sept. 9 meeting.

There are no plans at the moment to recruit a permanent person to fill the assistant city administrator position.

Councilman Robert Urteaga explained that cities don’t normally recruit for interim positions, and as an example, Montebello did not formally recruit Randy Narramore when he was appointed Interim City Administrator in 2007.

Urteaga said the city should have a copy of Pacheco’s resume. Even though he knows Pacheco from having worked in his Los Angeles city council administration, he said he did not suggest him for the interim position.

Pacheco said he submitted a resume to Torres when he expressed his interest in being the assistant city administrator.

Molinari declined a request by EGP for further comment on the city’s recruitment process.

Pacheco said he approached the city about the position. “I was working with council on the claim that the officers had filed and I had shared an interest with the city administrator awhile back that I was interested in being a part of the city family,” he said.

“Other than growing up in the Eastside and playing sports in Montebello,” Pacheco said his first introduction to Montebello was working with Xavier Becerra’s campaign for State Assembly in 1990. The “main person” he worked with in Montebello at that time was Molinari, who was on the Montebello council and a supporter of Becerra.

“He talked to me months ago about his interest in public administration,” Torres told EGP on Tuesday, adding, “One of the toughest parts of the job is everybody has an opinion. You’re working for a public agency so you have to be able to filter all these opinions without taking anything personally… the Nick that I met is very calm and thoughtful, so he definitely has the temperament.”

Pacheco was a deputy district attorney in Los Angeles from 1995-1999 and served as the Los Angeles councilman for the 14th District, which includes Boyle Heights, Eagle Rock, El Sereno, Downtown Los Angeles, Garvanza, Glassell Park, Hermon, Rose Hills, Highland Park and Mount Washington, from 1999 to 2003.

Mayor Rosemarie Vasquez said Pacheco comes with valuable experience from his time serving in Los Angeles. . . .

Esqueleto is right, Red Spot. Get off CD-2 and back to the other subject you know nothing about: CD-14.

Um, forgive the dumb question, but is the guy Pacheco will probably replace, Montebello City Administrator Richard Torres, THE "Ricardo Torres" of AV-challenge mailer "one-night-stand" days in CD-14? Pacheco's old college buddy? Or is that just a really weird coincidence.

Maybe Urteaga had nothing to do with it, after all?

12:50, wasn't there a whole thread on how there were TWO Richard Torres' of the same name, one a shady character and the OTHER a well-respected lawyer -- who is ironically the one Cooley's going after with a Grand Jury for running against him and "exposing" that he (Cooley) is Republican? Claiming that's akin to exposing someone as a neo-Nazi in L A County. So Cooley.

Big and sudden shakeup at the Times:

Jim Newton replaced as Editorial page Editor, to return to "working on his book" and become "editor at large," that is, under a leash.

Replaced by an assistant editor.

Could it be that revelations he had a deal to work for Riordan when he leaves after a seemly amount of time had something to do with it? The Essen endorsement and gratuitous slams on Tamar and Paul were so glaring. Coming after the contortions to endorse Trutanich which were totally counter to his real-life record and values. BOTH Shallman candidates.

Too much coincidence?

Hell, Pacheco was appointed LAST week.

This "know-it-all" blog that's been more heavily infested with CD-14 vermin than any other district - since day #1 - got scooped by a WEEKLY throwaway rag.

Dock Red Sppot's pay, Higby, big time.

(Although, he still beat the DAILY L.A. Times, thanks to Parque. PS always did hate Pacheco's guts).

In that picture of Art Spyder you keep posting, with the cheesy '70s disco-white suit, don't it look like he should have a bolo tie, suspenders and a pork-pie hat, like some good-old-chico southern politician.

Sort of the Col. Sanders to CD14s assorted pollos.

What a little tin-horn dictator he was. And, you should see him now. Teddy Kennedy (still) looks healthier than Art's bloated, red-faced alcoholic presence.

Don't spit so hard on the current batch of politicians in L.A. We could do worse.

We DID do worse. -- the Eastside was like Louisiana-lite.
