Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Monday

Mayor Villaraigosa's State of the City speech was heavy on education policy and light on the 350 million pound gorilla in the room - the city's trouble finances.  The Daily News says the Mayor must not lose his focus.  When did he have one?

After round two as the head of the LAUSD, Superintendent Ramon Cortines is retiring again. Uncomfortable to talk about himself (imagine that in an LA politician!) Cortines sits down the a fishwrap discusses his years and the future of education in LA.

Apparently former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger finds questions about his commutation of convicted murderer Esteban Nunez's sentence "boring."  Tell that to the father of the victim.

A major issue for the City at the moment is finding a way to deal with patrons at the Chinatown library looking at internet porn on library computers.

This blog continues to underperfom. Traffic is markedly decreased. With stories about teabagger Barbie Sarah Palin and a days old shard about internet porn one need not wonder why.

Going to get it together, guys?

8:29, In truth traffic is higher than ever, it is the comments that are down. And that's not such a bad thing, trust me.

Joe Barrett continue to deny reality.

Ask any scribe in town do they read MayorSam.

One would be saddened by the response.

I agree with 8:29 AM. There was a time when info. on internal city workings was posted daily. Gossip and smack about city hall politicians and insider tid bits were offered for us to put our two and twos together. Now it's filled with CD14 BS that's also been going on since the inception of this blog. Then you have BS about a people who no one even cares about. Do you not have an insider? Is no one willing to share what the fly on the wall used to bring to the table? How about all the smack council is talking about certain commissioners. Such as the full time Board of Public Works who appear to come in for meetings and leave shortly after to conduct their personal business such as going to the gym on city time, attending fashion shows or special events that mayor and council got fined for. How about the big city deficit and how the city is planning on getting employees to contribute a higher percentage toward thei retirement. How about the city shutting down during the holidays. How about anything but the same old stuff. Go to lacityworkers.com and see what we are talking about.

THE MAYOR DOESN'T CARE WHAT FOOD THE KIDS EAT WHY SHOULD HE CARE ABOUT THEIR EDUCATION. IT'S ALL POLITICS. WHEN ARE PEOPLE GOING TO GROW UP AND NOT VOTE FOR THESE PACKAGED OFFICIALS.
