Outtakes from CD 14 Special Report: "Where is Councilman Jose Huizar??"

The voting citizens of Los Angeles Council District 14 may want to ask an simple question, where is the "Councilman last seen as Jose Huizar?". This in light of today's MTA vote on the Long Range Transportation Plan or LRTP for short.

Why is this important? Because the plan will encompass what mass transit projects get funded from the Transportation Measure R "pot of gold", paid for by you in Los Angeles County.

And guess what? Councilman Huizar will not be in attendance, this according to a "local public official" who send us this e-mail.

Mayor Sam,

Tomorrow the MTA Board will finally approve the Long Range Transportation Plan or LRTP

CM Huizar is scheduled out of town for the next three days wed to fri.... Unbenknownst to his staff and the CM till I informed them yesterday,,, that the language in the title of a recommended project had been changed without notice

I know that your readers and LA followers thought that Cedillo's bill SB545 was controversial but the governor vetoed it and to the new found freeway/tunnel fighters in the Mt Washington and Highland park area who talked Garcetti Reyes and Huziar into opposing tunneling under zones 1 and 2 and recommended zone 3 ..

They caused the MTA to make slight wording changes in the backrooms on Vignes St and now have put the 500 El Sereno home in the original surface path back on the bulldozer target list.

The change was suttle... Measure R passed by the voters listed the Tunnel project as
"I-710 North Gap Closure - Tunnel" on all documents and advertisments to the voters and as of July 2009 at a Measure R Workshop..

But last week in a Policy and Planning Meeting of the MTA the NEW LRTP listed the 710 as

"I-710 North Extension" no reference to a tunnel...

This puts the surface freeway back in as an option, which the governor mentioned in his veto message and not to "eliminate all possible options for completing the freeway system"...or something like that

The CD 14 cut and pasters need to know that tomorrows MTA meeting could decide if their homes are the first to get mowed down...

and their CM won't be there to speak up for them.
(edited for format reasons)

When the likes of Councilman Art Snyder and Richard Alatorre were reaping the 'windfalls" of business dealings in CD 14, you can bet your place on the Lompoc license plate assembly line that the past "Dons", errr, public servants of the "cut and paste barrio", would of been on hand to bring home the carnitas for CD 14. After all, the likes of TELACU and Tutor-Saliba are always in a giving mood when public contracts come their way.

But then maybe Huizar is sequester somewhere and that means the staffers and associates have free reign, considering this in the latest Los Angeles Garment and Citizen.

BIG BROTHER FOR BLOGGERS?: Some of the keyboardists who weigh in with political postings on local blogs could be getting more attention than they’ve bargained for. Word on the street says that a local political pro with sufficient technical training to have hacker skills regularly plumbs cyberspace for clues on who’s posting what on which blogs…SATURDAYS IN CD 14: There seems to be more than one way to hunt a blogger. Reliable sources say that Ana Cubas, chief of staff for City Councilmember Jose Huizar, spent a recent Saturday morning calling around the 14th District to accuse constituents of posting items from this column in the blogosphere. Memo to Cubas: Feel free to give a call if you have anything to say about reports in this space—you’ll find contact information at the end of column. Meanwhile, it’s been several weeks and still no word back on calls seeking comment about the item that started this whole go-round—a report from reliable sources that Internal Revenue Service (IRS) investigators are looking into Huizar’s spending habits…

So in the insular barrio of CD 14, its not the constituents who should expect an phone call from the revolving staffers of their absent elected official, regarding their concerns, but they should not be shocked when the Councilperson's "Chief of Staff" calls them on a Saturday accusing them of blogging their concerns. Sounds like something that would happen in Cuba, but then this was done by someone with the last name of "Cubas", allegedly.

Your thoughts...............................

Between "an 'local public official'" and calling him "Huziar," the last of your concerns should be about the CM's whereabouts.

Red Spit, you drank the damn Kool Aid.

The 710 extension will not "mow down" any homes in CD14. Not ONE, you mush-headed follower.

You've been listening to the LOONS from toney South Pasadena who want L.A. to join them in opposing it, whether its surface, tunnel, or a strip of FREE CONCRETE RUNNING THROUGH OUTER SPACE, just because -- they ALWAYS HAVE, and don't know how to change their broken record.

Not only that, THE SKY ISN'T FALLING, either. Boo! This is one of your worst scare tactics, ever. Just in time for Halloween, RS?

Get a grip, ya big baby. They may, someday add 3-4 miles to an existing freeway, most likely hundreds of feet unerground JUST LIKE they did when they built the Red Line subway, at about the same price per mile, but instead of it transporting 10s of thousands, it'll move 100s of thousands of people, and MILLIONS of tons of freights (something no subway train can do), taking all that OFF the gridlocked 5, 2, and 110, plus any other north/south freeway in central L.A.

Don't carry water for the fat cats in SP, think for YOURSELF.

Plus, no REAL decisions are going to made about ANY of this until after the Caltrans reports are complete and presented MONTHS from now. So, what the hell did Huizy miss?

Beat him up if you want to -- there's LOTS to criticize, but don't go hitting him with a stupid FEATHER, and tell people otherwise.

Past institutional knowledge can be a good thing, but it's lost when you have a merry-go-round of changing staffers.

Old timers (6+ months on the job), in CD14 would know that nothing posted on this blog matters in the least to what really takes place in one of the bluest of "blue" districts in the city.

If Cubas is hot on the trail of constituents posting here, they're hunting gnats with bazookas. Talk about overkill.

If posting inflammatory material on Mayor Sam's could ever harm a CD14 politician, then why is the carpetbagging Antonio "80 FAKE NEIGHBORHOOD WATCHES" Villaraigosa, our mayor?

Yeah it sucks to have worked so hard to elect a common thug, you were warned, but what did you do, "shoot the messenger." Man UP Wet Spot. (We can't expect JenderJane to and he and Higby will keep on with their dumb CD2 wars between Bad and Worse for Candidates.)

It's Thursday, you can actually still find yesterday's L.A. Times stories online, too.

OH, OH, OH. My councilmember is away and out of the office.

Will the City still work? Will the wheels turn? Will the tap water run and the cops still file out after toll call?

Hell, what am I thinking? L.A. actually runs better when the bosses are all away and the minions that actually provide city services have time to do their jobs - instead of preparing non-stop reports for the paper-pushing bureaucrats at the top.

3:16, All I was alluding to was the fact that Huizar was going to be absent from today's meeting.

I believe I heard Huizar is hiking in South Carolina.

With the governor, I think?

It may be a threesome. I'm not sure.

(He wasn't real specific with any of his staff, he said "just make sure people know I'm NOT in Argentina, or anywhere in South America, for that matter."

Calm down, Ana. According to wikipedia.CD14's El Sereno is part of the most current route:

The original plans for the unbuilt segment through South Pasadena had the freeway run parallel to Atlantic Boulevard in Alhambra and Los Robles Avenue in San Marino and Pasadena. However, opposition to this route by the people of Alhambra and San Marino resulted in an alternate routing that skirted Alhambra to the west and bisected South Pasadena. Subsequent opposition to the rerouted project by residents of South Pasadena and the Los Angeles district of El Sereno, and the resulting litigation, have prevented Caltrans from completing the northernmost leg of the route.

BTW, both my fans can read me again at Griffith Park Wayist, where they aren't afraid of political opinions that run contrary to the opinions of the administrator.

Great post Red Spot. The lazy ass reporters should do a story of how many staffers have left Huizar's office so far. An ex staffer said something like 18 in two years. He hired another one who use to work for Janice Hahn and is a bully himself. Little twit thinks he's a know it all because he works out of city hall. He's as dumb as they come and needs to come out of the closet.

18 Staffers gone? Try more like 60...Huizzy ran all his best staff out because they kept demanding him to go to events, meetings, and actually work but he's too lazy to show up to any of it and now its such a rotating door that if a staffer leaves for more than 3 days, they are guaranteed that upon their return, at least 2 fellow staffers have left and a new addition (usually a Francine, Ana or Jose friend) has been added to the staff list.

Get over it Henry Casas. There is a reason Huizar fired you. You bad mouth your own bosses. We chased you out of the Valley and knew it was a matter of time before Huizar fired you. And here you go again, bad mouthing your former bosses. Campaigns would hire you to be the attack dog...you make up lies about people and spread gossip...there is a reason why your ex-girlfriends are afraid of you... Everyone knows it's you spreading these lies...you did it in the valley, you did it in east l.a., and you will do it wherever you are now. And don't come back to the valley!
