"KCBS video still of DWP worker drinking on the clock"
"Drinking is my job as Mayor"
Good Friday morning to you in the political cybersphere.
If the likes of "Santiago" and his towel-wrapping, pole dancing loving co-workers, don't cause you to become angry, especially in the light that their conduct took place on the clock, then maybe you deserve every DWP rate increase that will be coming your way in the next few years.
This blogger commends and thinks that David Goldstein's exclusive, should be on the short list for a local news Emmy Award. But one wishes that this report could of come to light a couple of weeks earlier, when the DWP rate increase controversy was still pending resolution at 200 Spring Street.
As for Santiago and his DWP co-workers, a few bits of advise, in prepping to save your jobs.
** First, refer to the above picture of Mayor Antonio Parkervillar and plead that your drinking and strip club activities, added up only to 11% of your on-time duties. Thus, you were performing your job 89% of the time. Something Mayor Parkervillar can't claim.
** Second, join the Sierra Club. This because your DWP H.R. Director Susana Reyes, is the LA County Political Director for the Sierra Club. She may cut you some time off your pending discipline, if you pledge to promote Mayor Parkervillar's "Green Energy Scheme".
** Third, wake up each morning and bow to your "Dear Leader, IBEW Boss D'Arcy" for mercy.
** Fourth, Prospect Park is a better hiding place than Hollenbeck Park in Boyle Heights. How do we know? Just say we know by your past visits.
** Fifth, in the barrio, brown bags are the "prefer wrap of choice" for the 24 oz. can of suds.
** Six, please pay heed to this list of people who lost their public careers when they embarrass Mayor Parkervillar. Ed Boks, Martin Ludlow, David Nahai, Jack Weiss,......... and now you.
Mayor Parkervillar yesterday did what he does best, that is to pander to the undocumented masses
in supporting a boycott of Arizona. Are the undocumented in this city the only ones who still see promise in this fail politician?
** Unofficial tallies for yesterday's Neighborhood Council Elections will be posted at the city Clerks website this afternoon.
The City Council Budget Committee, will continue their deliberations next week
. One should note that the DWP is schedule to testify sometime on Monday and in light of KCBS David Goldstein's report on the utility, this should be a good time to be in attendance.
