This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.
|Damn Candidate Forums! Why do I need take credit for others, errrr, highlight my record as City Couincilman?|
Great chillin evening from the northern edge of CD 14 as we start our bloggin "Forum with Huizzy Tour".
Our first stop is the Highland Park Senior Center where Councilman Huizar (at 6:58PM) just walked into his planned evening 30 minute presentation/Q and A with the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council. Two weeks earlier, the same format was accorded to Rudy Martinez.
Upon completion of his presentation and Q and A, Councilman Huizar will make his way to the El Sereno Senior Center where the LA 32 Neighborhood Council and Rudy Martinez are waiting for the councilman's arrival to conduct the candidate forum sponser by the LA 32 NC and The Voice Newspaper. BTW, the councilman was gracious to give his favorite blogger a friendly greeting with pat on the back as he inquire about my work status.
Huizar must hit the road by 7:30PM to make El Sereno
** Evening Update: The El Sereno Senior Center became wi-fi dead zone. will post update in the AM.
We will live blog notes from our travels as the night progresses.
7:10PM Al Strange of the Northeast Democrats questions Huizar about the Bridewell Armory (Stay away from Legacy LA but Huizzy just mentioned their "fine work" GET THE SHOVEL!)
Huizar only answering questions due to time constraints, no follow-up questioning allowed.
Summer Night Lights oh my!
7:20PM Softballs galore but what happen to your scheduled open houses?
Brings up Joe Carmona's gang program.
What will you do about LAFD Brownouts? (Use CLARTS Fund to offset closures but council staff salaries are paramount).
El Sereno and Eagle Rock get services but Highland Park neglected.
** Time for Red Spot to ride.
