Former ADI Lobbyist Richard Alatorre to co-host fundraiser for Legacy LA while Veteran fears lost of American Dream

Will Richard Alatorre share some ADI love with his former staffer Lou Calanche? Maybe Kevin De Leon can implore the youth of Legacy LA to dream of shilling for the likes of beer and wine seller 7-eleven, at the expense of a navy veteran turned small business owner? (read document of De Leon's support for 7-eleven after the jump).    
Legacy LA supporter and Ramona Gardens Resident Advisory Council Member Liliana Martinez testifies (at 26:45 mark on video) on the behalf of 7-eleven as noted in previous Mayor Sam post. What did Legacy LA get in return for their support of 7-eleven at this hearing? View pictures of Martinez "side-(walk) business" after the jump.
Navy Veteran and Small Business Owner Ben Lee with wife Yu Mei, longtime owners of "The Sugar Donut" shop on Mission Road next to Lincoln Park in CD 1. Why are the likes of Legacy LA, Councilman Ed Reyes, Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce and State Senator Kevin De Leon supporting 7-eleven's efforts to push increased beer and wine sales in "sensitive communities"?
Eviction Notice seeking to remove Mr. Lee and his business to make room for new 7-eleven store, with its beer and wine sales. More documents and photos after the jump

Liliana Martinez at her Saturday morning "side-(walk) business" location. Notice any business license in photo? Does her support of 7-eleven with the likes of Councilman Ed Reyes, Councilman Jose Huizar, State Senator Kevin De Leon and former Hollenbeck CPAB Chairperson Lou Calanche, allows Martinez to operate her sidewalk enterprise without fear of legal consenquences?
 And while the likes of Legacy LA supporter Liliana Martinez operates her sidewalk enterprise, an immigrant veteran of our armed forces stands in front of his "American Dream" wondering why so-called progressives would seek to take away what he worked so hard to acheive.
Your thoughts..............

So, Lilliana Martinez who is Ramona Gardens RAC member has a business on a side walk on the weekend when the Housing Authority is CLOSED and sells taco's. She get away from paying tax's and rising her rent. Maybe we should all do this and not pay any tax's.

Thank you very much for your comments I appreciate it.
But there are several things that are wrong, Father's Day event was coordinated by RAC and not Legacy LA, I report to housing my income from selling tacos, I am not a RAC member , finally I do not give my permission to use my name so please you put a stop to this. By Liliana Martinez

I guess I'm not alone in this illegal vending saga I've been trying to get rid of this problem in my neighborhood for years with little help. I guess if I can't beat them maybe it's time to join them. Living in El Sereno Husband laid off two years ago. These illegal vendors make up to one thousand dollars a night tax free. Huizar/Reyes Help!

Some facts about Liliana Martinez.

Liliana testify not once, but twice with fellow Ramona Gardens RAC Member and Legacy LA Employee Martha Gonzalez.

The RAC never told the community that they supported more beer and wine sales as Martinez stated in the video.

Liliana and Martha were also Councilman Jose Huizar supporters who by the way received campaign contributions from 7-eleven.

Liliana was overheard telling people not to vote for Rudy Martinez because he is rich, but at lease Rudy pays his taxes.

I wonder if I should set up a taco stand and get away from paying tax's, maybe that's why CA is going down hill. Too any people getting away from paying dues.
