-Sunland-Tujunga Activist Tomi Bowling on Mayor Sam's Facebook Page
Sunland-Tujunga who recently endorsed School Board Member Tamar Galatzan, I have some bad news for you.
First, I'll let Denzel Washington, as Malcom X, tell you what Tamar has done to you.
Lets start at the top. Kevin Acebo, is Galatzan's primary consultant. (and if you don't believe a Mayor Sam reader none other than the minutes of a Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association meeting confirm the Galatzan-Acebo-Villaraigosa connection) According to City Ethics records, Galatazan to date has paid Acebo $12,000 to run her campaign. Okay, so who is Acebo? Quite frankly a longtime Villaraigosa insider who served as a Deputy Mayor to Villaraigosa until last year.
Additionally Galatzan has secured the services of consulting firm Padilla and Associates who has done over $20,000 worth of work for Villaraigosa over the years and whose principal Katherine Padilla served as Villaraigosa's campaign treasurer. Padilla has also secured contracts from the City of Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Review Commission to "facilitate" meetings.
But wait there's more. Not only is Tamar's campaign staff full of Villaraigosa flunkies but so is her school board staff. Director of Policy Pamela Burga previously worked on the Mayor's staff. Director of Community Affairs Denise Campos was District Director for fellow Villaraigosa client, Councilmember Jose Huizar.
You've been bamboozled!
