Morning Briefs and Outtakes on Oversight of Gang Programs, Pot, Ron Kaye's Endorsement in CD 2 and other News

"Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his homeboys"
Why would Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa be so dismissive of the findings of City Councilman Tony Cardenas's Ad Hoc Committee on Gang Violence and Youth Development?
As reported in the Los Angeles Times, the committee stated that "the city of Los Angeles should create a standalone department of gang prevention and intervention instead of relying on the mayor's office to oversee anti-gang programs as it does now, according to a report released Monday".
Citing the need for greater financial oversight and improved collaboration between the city, law enforcement, courts, schools and social service agencies, the report called for a comprehensive change in the way the city addresses the root causes of gang violence. The Ad Hoc Committee on Gang Violence and Youth Development has been reviewing city gang initiatives for roughly four years.
The response from the Mayor's office was swift and defiant.

"The graduate students who wrote the report deserve an 'A' for effort, but at a time when we're working to deliver services more efficiently, creating a new government bureaucracy is driving the wrong way on a one-way street," said Matt Szabo, deputy chief of staff to Villaraigosa.

Szabo should get an "A" for spin with this response. But here is the real reason why the Mayor wanted to have direct oversight of the allocation of gang funding.

06/27/08 Maria Lourdes Calanche (Instructor, LA Community College District) Los Angeles, CA 90031 Antonio Villaraigosa Mayor 1305101 - Antonio R. Villaraigosa for Mayor 2009 A - Monetary Contribution Received (IND - Individual) [Period: 01/01/08-06/30/08] $1,000.00
Its all about money!! Or should we say the franchise fees?
We have posted here numerous times about the dubious dealings of the latest "connected non-profit" Legacy LA and their connections to close associates of Mayor Villaraigosa. (Dalila Sotelo, Lou Calanche, Jenny Krusoe, David Galaviz, Raul Estrada just to name a few).
A source has stated that Legacy LA is endanger of losing their Gang Reduction, Youth Development or "GRYD" contract due to "double counting". Legacy LA, as part of their GRYD contract, is require to work with 25 gang members and 25 youths who are potential gang members. But it seems that Legacy LA is trying to count the 25 potential gang members again as "gang members" on their reports to GRYD. Further community members are questioning whether the two intervention specialists, "George" and "Renee" are actually in the field doing their work.
In addition, the GRYD rep for the area "Eduardo" was recently terminated from his position with the city, Eduardo also was the on-site coordinator at Ramona Gardens Recreation Center, for the Mayor Villaraigosa's "Summer Night Lights" program.

According to a source close to the organization, Legacy LA did indeed lose their contract only to see it quickly reinstated by the Mayor's office. The employee "Renee", who was an close associate of Jenny Krusoe has lefted the organization, as has Jenny Krusoe. Further, some close to the Summer Night Lights program at Ramona Gardens have stated that "Eduardo" was terminated for his lack of supervision, in regards to the staff structure at Ramona Gardens.

It is clear in our reporting on Legacy LA, that politics played a major role in the creation of this organization (former Mayor staffer and now CRA employee Carlos Alvarado and Jenny Krusoe were the original front people) and one can surmise that Legacy LA was created solely for being a repository for future gang funding and thus, payouts in jobs to their associates.

Maybe that is why Matt Szabo was so "over the top" with his retort to Councilman Cardenas's committee report, after all, protecting the franchise fees to Mayor Villaraigosa is of paramount concern.

** Former Daily News Editor now blogger Ron Kaye, has posted his endorsement for Paul Krekorian in the CD 2 Special Election for City Council.

The city is at a crossroads.

We have seen how ordinary citizens could defeat the machine on Measure B in March, how it could pull together and elect Carmen Trutanich as City Attorney in May. So let's hand the mayor and the machine a third straight defeat in December by elected Paul Krekorian in CD2.

** Councilman Greig Smith and Dennis Zine, aka, "The Spring Street RINOS" have announced their endorsement of Chris Essel for the CD 2 City Council seat.

** Mayor Villaraigosa, Councilman Huizar and others associated with Aramark Turkey Giveaway fiasco at the Convention Center, might want to make nice to those hundreds of people who were denied their Turkeys. Chants of "WE WANT TURKEYS!!, WE WANT TURKEYS!!", mixed with images of "connected associates" of various public officials, driving off with turkeys without providing the require vouchers, is going to create a backlash.

** Speaking of turkeys, Mayor Villaraigosa and the City Council will get a financial reality check today.

The Los Angeles City Council today will get what is expected to be a sober briefing on the city's financial condition, a day after L.A.'s credit rating was downgraded. The city’s credit was downgraded by Fitch Ratings on $2.94 billion in debt, meaning that borrowing money will become more expensive for Los Angeles as it grapples with a $98-million current-year budget shortfall and faces the prospect of graver fiscal woes in the years ahead.

** This city continues to go to pot with Councilman Ed Reyes leading the way.

Dispensaries in Los Angeles could continue to accept cash for medical marijuana under a provision approved by the City Council on Tuesday, after it adopted language carefully crafted to maneuver past the city attorney's adamant position that state law bars the sale of the drug.

This from Councilman Ed "density" Reyes,

Several members harshly criticized the city attorney's office. Councilman Ed Reyes, who oversaw the effort to write an ordinance, accused the office of pressing "a political point of view that has nothing to do with objective advice."

** The LA Weekly chronicles how Los Angeles went to pot in an extensive must read by Patrick Range McDonald and Christine Pelisek, here is a passage on Eagle Rock residents interaction with their attentive councilperson.

Michael Larsen sought out Reyes, who had bottled up the regulations for years, never sending a plan to the City Council for a vote. When Larsen finally wangled a meeting with Reyes, he found himself facing a few city employees — and four marijuana activists, including Don Duncan.

“It was clearly lopsided,” Larsen says. After that, Larsen tried for three months to reach his council representative, Huizar, a former school board member who Larsen assumed would be on top of things. But Huizar — who has a personal staff of 26 people — ducked all of Larsen’s calls.

So Larsen came up with a little subterfuge of his own: He and another neighbor found out where Huizar was going to be appearing in public, and in April, “we ambushed him — at an Easter event. We walked up to him with a paper showing all the medical marijuana dispensaries in our community. We said, ‘What are you doing about it?’ He feigned shock.” More recently, Huizar’s office “asked me to please find out what is going on with them. I am happy to do it, to keep the thing moving. But it is just crazy, that it’s our responsibility to be on top of this stuff.”

Some will say that is the normal Huizar reaction to all issues.

Your thoughts and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

the implication of that photo's use is horrible. That's a photo of Homeboy Industries, which is one of the few effective anti-gang programs in the country. And it's not run by gang members skimming money, but by an impressive Catholic priest, Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ.

Putting Fr. Boyle up as one of the idiot-mayor's "homeboys" isn't fair to Fr. Boyle. He's great company and Mayor V should consider himself lucky to have been invited for the photo.

Don't try to lump Fr. Boyle in with all the other scum in this city.

the mayor's office took this away from Cardenas because his committee had done nothing useful for years - his sidekick is janice Hahn remember

But the mayor's office hasn't done better that we can see. He needs to keep gang programs under his umbrella to give Jeff Carr an excuse to being his Top Deputy Mayor - the Night Lights program is the only thing Carr has to hang his shingle on. Not much depth for a job that high where the others report to him to begin with.

Cardenas may be playing Bitter Bernie here except the Mayor and Carr are no Bratton. Certainly the idiot Nooch isn't upto it, too busy helping Cooley create felons out of AEG's executives and lawyer, and anyone who sells pot even if non-profit, starting with that silly Craig Rubin - bad suits are no excuse for throwing him in jail anymore than Jan Perry's eating hamburgers under her desk is, nor speaking her mind, even if she's wrong or stupid. (Heck, if being stupid was a crime Nooch would start with incarcertaing himself and his buddies Zine and LeBonge - now, there's an appealing idea, all 3 in jail and out of sight.)

Szabo's right that creating a new dept. goes against the cost-saving step of consolidating depts., but since Carr has been promoted he can't be trusted to oversee gang programs with being biased to spin a positive outcome. If the program is to stay under the mayor's office it needs a reliable outside manager br9ught in.

The council meeting today is another one of those CYA things that they do so well. Garcetti trying to get the pubic to begin to accept the expensive solutions that they will have for us.

At the same time, they all take credit for anything they can. The Early Retirement program was oen of them, but the city's new financial chief, Santana, the CAO, went on to lay out a more objective view and added the downside that the ERIP has caused a brain drain within the City with so many experienced employees taking the early retirement.

All the CMs seem to be repeating known things and acting blame-free for all the months and years leading up to the crisis that the city "leadership" faces due to its own poor management or simply neglectful and wasteful management, often aggravated by the decisions they finally chose to make.

Greig Smith quickly jumped up to reflect on the pension situation for L.A. and extracting statements from Santana to show that comparatively, L.A. lost less that most other cities across the country. He clearly added that the City Council members are NOT responsible for decisions made on pensions.

It goes on and on today and every day, yet they continue to praise each other's leadership in this or that.

All you see in these meetings is presented there for the people to believe the CMs actually know what they are doing above the rest of us.

All today's comments just could have been made long ago, or would not have to be made if they had paid attention to warning signs and logcial behavior LONG AGO.

I continue to find it amazing and frustrating to hear the CMs and Mayor (among others) continue to spin things that are negatives so that the casual oberver thinks, "These guys are pretty smart." Far from it. And the San Antonio conference of cities included sessions to help fool us, oh, sorry, how best to use public relations.

CM Hahn came close to apologizing for not checking the impact before acting to make the parking meter steep fee hike that was begun last December, as she's now heard from more people, including merchants who say it has hurt business. Close but not quite an apology, and that's as close as any CM will come to saying they ever goofed.

It always looks like they work against us, trying to manipulate at every opportunity to exploit the public to keep "business as usual" for themselves. The recent San Antonio meeting with other cities was another exercise in sharpening their skills by trading tips with like-minded others. But I guess since it was for city "business" then it's got to be for OUR benefit, not theirs, right?

Getting more cynical with each meeting.

GREAT STUFF RED SPOT. Interesting you bring up the gang programs in the Mayor's office because of Celeste Fremon was questioning where the $24 million was going. Father Boyle and his homies got tons of money but people came to find out a lot of it was spent on $500 an hour lawyers to defend his gang banger employees. Homeboy is nothing more then a front for illegal activity and everyone knows. Then you have so called gang programs in CD14 like Youth Alive which is actually out of Oakland, CA. Then you have Alma Family Services which gets gang money that is in the COUNTY...hellooooo our tax dollars helping agencies that are double dipping. The gang programs under Antonio is corrupt. Glad finally the truth is getting out.

OK Michael,

But I am right in this argument.

Red Spot's story originally appeared BEHIND my story this morning..I know because I SAW IT!

He took so long writing it that it was time/date stamped about 7:10 AM and my Craig Rubin Story was faster to type and post and went up first and was dated about 7:40

He saw the results, didn't like them, went back and re-edited it and it moved ahead of mine.

I don't care that he did it...the story on Craig Rubin was not that important

... but you need to talk to Red Spot about his behavior. I think it's childish.

We've had this dispute once before when he bottlecapped me.

I never do it intentionally without giving the other writers a few hours of time on top.

12:26, yes Janice Hahn "came close to apologizing" for not taking time to THINK of other consequences before replacing parking meters with those which charge upto 4X as much or $4/hour, driving customers away from mom & pop businesses while cities like Burbank have tons of free parking in big malls, and even Beverly Hills has 2 hours free at city lots. She gassed on about how L A has to be more friendly to small business, gee, what a revelation. The theatres in NoHo are just one casualty. Look at Pico Blvd. too.

WHOSE idea was that "gold in the gutters?" "I just happen to be a gay man" Bill FlipFlopEnthal - who of course takes no responsibility for not thinking, blames it on the haste of the Transportation Dept. Who HE made hurry up with changing out the meters. AFTER he jumped ship and turned AGAINST the mayor/Zev/Weiss Pico-Olympic plan largely because it would have added one hour/day no parking along Pico and Olympic, which shops claimed would hurt them. Which is worse, that or tripling and quadrupling rates all day long? But the usual loud people from CD5 went to him at a Transportation Comm. meeting and he immediately caved because he likes to be "liked." Which means avoiding decisions which might tick ANYONE off.

What about his handling of the live-in "recreational vehicles" ruining Venice and Mar Vista? They were a problem but he just chased them to another area to appease one group of angry people. After passing the buck to the Coastal Comm.

How many other cases where they can't think 2 steps ahead and then pat themselves on the back anyway.

Antonio and D'Arcy both wanted Measure B. Essel is for SB1818 and developing Verdugo Hills and Universal/Victory Blvd. - hence La Bonge. But at the same time Essel is the Riordan/RINO candidate and said she supports Carmen/Cooley on their radical position that all sales or changing of money for any reason is illegal - she doesn't give a shit about any social positions, will agree with whoever backs her. Hence the Police Political League too - hoping to add someone to Zine-Smith who are bought and paid for.

(Zine-Smith probably signed on at PPL's urging because they need another one to push the majority in their favor especially as Trutanich is no use and in fact counter-productive alone. Smith and Zine don't always agree but always take the side of the PPL against the chief or mayor who wants to expand the force and put money into areas other than cop pensions. The PPL promotes events for both these two in return.)

Getting this mixed bag of supporters makes her the emtpy vessel filled up with whatever people dump into her to float her boat to victory. When so many with so many agendas for her pour $1 million bucks into her ship and wanted to pour more, and Krekorian has only a couple of the more iconoclastic councilmembers on his side, and a track record on social issues, I know where I stand.

2:03, the "anti measure B, pro-Trutanich crowd is backing Essel" is wrong if you look at Ron Kaye King of Anti-Measure B Bloggers backing Krekorian.

The Trutanich vote wasn't really for him so much as anti-B and City Hall, so Krekorian's the anti-city hall candidate. Trutanich is a sell-out, out for personal attention and glory like he was his whole career, but Shallman spun a good game. Now Shallman's dirty work is too obvious with what he's doing to Krekorian. Kaye says something about even breaking into his apt. to take secret pictures and weird stuff.

Ron also caught Essel for playing the "ethics high ground game" saying she'd require anyone who's got an Ethics violation to pay out of pocket even if the Ethics commission rules it's immaterial or not required to pay it back - then she has IBEW try to overturn the Ethics rules just for her so they can sink more than the 500 grand so far into beating Paul.
