Now the video of her rambling presentation is posted above for all to see. For those who may be interested in a career of public service, Cubas performance is noteworthy for its subjective dodging of the questions by the LA 32 Board.
But at the end point of her opening presentation (about 25 minutes in), Cubas states that there was only $60,000 currently in the CLARTS Fund balance, which surprise former CD 14 City Councilman Nick Pacheco, who briefly speaks. But the truth unknown to the LA 32 Board, Pacheco and not likely Cubas, is noted below in the memo..
More after the bloggin leap.
In the weeks since, we have learned that besides using the CLARTS Fund for what it was created for, Councilman Huizar secretly moved $1,045,000 of the fund into his salary account.
The amount above as of the date of the memo was the balance unallocated for.
Four months later, the big question here is what is the status of the balance. Has any of it been spent on community amenities? Councilman Huizar's challenger Rudy Martinez stated that he would use CLARTS to maintain public services as we noted in an earlier post..
And especially for the residents of Hillside Village, who were front and center in protesting cut backs in fire services
, they might want to question Councilman Huizar why he was not pro-active in allocating any of the above balance to mitigate the brownouts at station 16? Thus, helping to pervent another tragic event that Luis Gonzalez emotionally stated at City Hall.
Paramedics, police or staffers pay, voters in CD 14 will decide on March 8.
