Another staffer has left the field office.
We take you to the the "contact us"
section of CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar's website. Direct your attention to the staff directory for the Boyle Heights Field Office. Who is missing from this list?
If you said Celina Mancia, then you get the current e-mail blast from Huizar detailing his latest doings.
But for Celina Mancia, and the growing society of ex. staffers of Jose Huizar, maybe its time to start booking some large venue like the Staples Center, Nokia Theater, 740 Club or Steven's Steakhouse, for a Christmas get together/reunion.
Casas, we have learned, has been hire by Soledad Enrichment Action (SEA), where he joins another Huizar ex. staffer Armando Gonzalez. Here is hoping that Casas and Mancia find peace away from their former duties in the "staffer grinder" that is CD 14 under Huizar. **
Celina Mancia is now working for Central City East
in Downtown LA.

ARE FEDS STILL ON HUIZAR?: The U.S. Attorney might have dropped an investigation into 14th District City Councilmember Jose Huizar, but reliable sources say that agents of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are asking some questions of their own. The U.S. Attorney recently cleared Huizar after considering the propriety of payments he received from a labor-backed outfit for consulting services during his tenure on the Los Angeles Unified School District board. The IRS now appears to be backtracking Huizar’s spending habits, which could be an investigative method to check his claims on deductions or to determine whether he properly reported all of his income. Spend more than you could possibly afford on whatever income you claim and it’s liable to become a red flag for the feds. Huizar’s office had not returned calls seeking comment as of presstime…
Still waiting for some statement from Rick Coca.
Krusoe, for all of her abrasive traits, leaves Legacy LA in the hands of Executive Director, Maria Lou Calanche, who is an well-known political operative and former three-time candidate for public office.
Krusoe's former antagonists at the Hazard Park Advisory Board have also met with termination as PAB members, after Los Angeles Recreation and Parks send letters to members who three year terms had expire. But according to sources, Rec and Parks may be acting selectivly in enforcing this policy. For example, Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council member Lupe Guillen, has served on the Lincoln Park PAB for seven years and then there is this from the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, from one of the
candidates for the vacant "Recreation, Culture and the Arts position.
MARTHA BENEDICT (Montecito Heights stakeholder) STATEMENT: I’m committed to enhancing Arroyo culture as the main ingredient of our community identity and the flavor of future development. Our dramatic geography has attracted artists and intellectuals for over a century and so it continues, as I’ve learned from knowing my neighbors. I’ve served on the Debs Park Advisory Board for over five years and was recently elected chair. I’m on the board of the Montecito Heights Improvement Association and the Mount Washington Preschools. I support restoring the Arroyo Seco River as an unpaved water course, reopening the Southwest Museum as a museum and preserving historic neighborhood character.
It seems that politics is at play again at Hazard Park and we can link to the "past investigation"
of Hazard Park PAB members on instructions from Legacy LA's Jenny Krusoe and CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar.
Just Say No? 710-Gap!
The Councilman had something to say regarding the 710 freeway gap through his district's communities of El Sereno, Highland Park, Glassell Park, Mt. Washington or Eagle Rock. He said, "I will not allow in the areas of my direct jurisdiction, any above ground or tunnel to come through Northeast Los Angeles to fill that gap. It just- does not- make- sense." To which he received a rousing applause.
The residents of eastern El Sereno aka. "Option 3 Neighborhood
", may find his comment of some interest.
