Outtakes from CD 14: La Opinion outs Councilman Huizar's use of the CLARTS Fund

"Hotel Huizar, where we keep the door way clear for you"
"The truth will come out".
That is what embattled CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar said to a prominent community activist when asked about the status of the Central Los Angeles Refuge Transfer Station (CLARTS) Fund and that day is now, as the La Opinion Newspaper reports in its Friday's edition (Link here to read the the google translation and commentary provided by Ron Kaye).
CD 14 activists, newspapers, neighborhood councils, bloggers (including Ron Kaye and myself) and a former councilperson, have ask both informally and formally through the California Public Records Act, what has become of the amenities fund that was the brainchild of the late Lloyd Monserratt the Chief of Staff of former Councilperson Nick Pacheco?
LA Opinion discloses that Councilman Huizar has almost diverted half of the $2.8 million in the fund into his "city council account" ( salaries? community events that promote Huizzy?). This run contrary to the vision of Nick Pacheco who wanted this amenities account to fund community events within CD 14, without political connotations.
The Spanish counterpart of the Los Angeles Times also cites The Voice Newspaper and Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council President Jose Aguilar as sources for today's report. The Voice Newspaper in its March 2010 edition published a article on the CLARTS Fund that gave its readers a "Cliff Notes" version on the origin and purpose of the fund, while asking Councilman Huizar to brief the community on the current status of the fund, via a formal Public Records Act. BHNC President Jose Aguilar, who was the primary activist in bring community attention to this previously unknown CD 14 exclusive discretionary fund, was given his proper due in the story.
Councilman Huizar in response to today's story ( as best deducted from the Google translation), attacks The Voice Newspaper for creating controversy where none exists. Huizar also attacks The Voice Newspaper for working on the behalf of his political opponents. But one should remind Huizar that it was this blog that kept updating its readers on Huizar's lack of responses to the Public Records Request of both The Voice and the now defunct Garment and Citizen Newspaper on this and other issues.
As of post time, the Rudy Martinez Campaign has not responded to today's La Opinion story. But Huizar might ponder what a difference a little CLARTS Fund allocation to maintaining paramedic staffing levels at Station 16 in El Sereno could have done for this gentleman's family? But then in CD 14, maintaining a proper amount of indifferent staffers is paramount than funding public safety resources.
Your thoughts..............

"NOONE" believes you studied anything, let alone journalism, at community college. Why don't you post your report card if you did, just to prove it.

From a spending standpoint, we can't afford this. Legal standpoint, it's illegal and unfair. I'm an immigrant and Republicans are the only ones who stand for America. People from all over the world struggle to get in this country. How would you feel if someone cut in front you in a line or while driving? Also, legal citizens of this country are not entitled to free college education? The Democrats have gone too dangerously far too left and extreme. Until they move to the center, they should be punished on the next election cycle including Obama. I hate it when these guys give away money that's not their like my tax dollars. The liberals are also burying us into debt with their wasteful spending.

$1 BILLION money goes into Boyle Heights. Huizar's promise to Audit all the non profits has never been done. Why? Because Huizar has friends like Boyle Height Tech Center director driving a new Mercedes. Huizar makes sure his friends like Raul Estrada at El Centro Ayuda always gets money. Raul is as corrupt as the other non profits in Boyle Heights. Raul is always taken care of by the Mayor as well very corrupt circle. Homeboy Industries needs to be audited. These non profits give tax dollars to political campaigns and get high salaries.

You need to post the article in HOY magazine quoting Huizar stating he loves Mexico more and feels at home there. Huizar has made Boyle Heights into Tijuana and a 3rd world country. There is so much blight and crap all over the district because he feels comfortable living like a pig as illegals do. They pretend to be afraid but you will see them all over the city blatantly breaking the law. Huizar has come out to support illegals and marches with them but fails to do anything to honor or show American Pride as the Mexian Americans living in his district. They have become the silent voice. There are many Mexican Americans all over the city and in CD14 who support Arizona SB1070 and against the Dream Act. All the corrupt Latino politicans Mayor, Huizar, Cardenas, Alarcon, Reyes, support illegals at every step. This is why they have ruined OUR City and everyone no matter where you live help other districts to get rid of them all. Krekorian won by the power of the people and internet emails. WE all need to do the same and spread the word against these MEcha thinking idiots like Huizar

Has he ever mentioned when he became a citizen?
All he talks about is where he was born.

If he's not a citizen here, that would explain a lot.
