"Councilman Huizar, please report to the chamber, Councilman Huizar, please report to the chambers"........., but he never did. Thus, after fifteen minutes of pleading for his council colleagues to make quorum, City Council President Eric Garcetti cancelled today's city council meeting.
One person who talked via phone from City Hall this morning, opined that another reason for today's cancellation may have to do with the pending audit of selected CRA's statewide by California Controller John Chiang. Thus, with Councilman Huizar's awarding of CRA money to CASA 0101 and bigger giveaways to the likes of Eli Broad's "Museum to Self", the City Council may not want to provoke Chiang to undertake a quicker review of CRA/LA books. Look for the City Council to sit on the status of CRA/LA for the short term, pending backroom discussions in Sacramento.
