Will CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar Chief of Staff Ana Cubas respect the LA 32 Neighborhood Council with answers to their written questions on the CLARTS and other discretionary funds?

When the LA 32 Neighborhood Council meets this Wednesday for their first gathering of 2011, one wonders if CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar's Chief of Staff Ana Cubas will have any answers to the questions requested by the NC and its stakeholders.
Since this meeting, the growing controversy over the lack of full disclosure on the status of the CLARTS Fund, has some coining Councilman Jose "Tricky Huizzy" Huizar's stonewalling on the exclusive CD 14 amenities fund, "CLARTSgate". A sure sign that this controversy is not ending anytime soon.
The drafted letter above was sent to Chief of Staff Ana Cubas after her less than sustenance appearance, in place of her boss who had a "prior engagement". This despite four weeks of advance notice with questions provided at time of invite.
Some have speculated that Councilman Huizar feared an "political ambush" by his opponents in the current city council campaign. But paramount in the LA 32 NC priorities was creating an objective meeting environment where the councilman could give his requested presentation without unwarranted political and personal attacks.
But the reality was that Councilman Huizar was a no show and his designated messenger Chief of Staff Ana Cubas, lefted behind more questions than answers. Questions whether Councilman Huizar has something to hide with his transfare of $1.8 million of CLARTS Fund money to "Council Office" and "General Purpose" accounts?
Thus, because of Councilman Huizar's "Nixonian proclivities" the pursuit of full disclosure on the CLARTS Fund or what is now becoming Tricky Huizzy's "CLARTSgate" rumbles on a looming collision course with the CD 14 voters before the March elections.
