Capital Weekly: Mayor Villar is among California's "Top Ten Good Mayors", or did they mean Bottom Ten?

Guessing that Capital Weekly didn't equate content from "West Los Angeles Magazine" into its Top Ten scoring for Mayor Villar.
So much for the "LA Antonio Times Era" of the "Old Gray Hag on Spring Street" being the repository of "scribegasms" on the political virtues of Mayor Antonio Ramon Villar.
Apparently, Mayor Villar's recent public utterances regarding Governor Moonbeam II "lacking the gonads" to reform Proposition 13 and his high-profile selection as President of the United States Conference of Mayors, have cause the scribes at the Capital Weekly to wet themselves by naming the former City Terrace Native "Tony Villar" as one of California's "Top Ten Good Mayors". (** Read LA Weekly blogger "Snarky Wilson's" take on this honor) 
As with most "Top Ten lists, some sort of rudimentary scoring matrix is used, even in these types of tiresome journalistic exercises that are predicated by an ideological bent. Thus, in that vain, here are our Top Ten Categories in descending order in rating Mayor Villar as a "Bottom Ten No Good Mayor".
** 10. Number of people shot (3) at the 2011 Edition of Summer Night Lights.
** 9.Growing number of departments, department heads and commission appointees that are under investigation, been terminated or resigned due to nefarious activities.
** 8. Growing budget deficit due to generous union pensions.
** 7. Twice fired DWP Official Raman Raj who receives full salary on disability, six months after getting fire.
** 6. Living trees planted by Million Trees Initiative. 
** 5. Number of telebimbos conquests.
** 4. The use of  "ahhh" and cliches in policy speeches.
** 3. Ratio of photos ops/press conferences (high) to policy successes (low).
** 2. Political coat tailing on hard work of the LAPD.
Thus, with this scoring matrix, we think, soon to be again Antonio "Tony" Villar, would have a hard time being elected mayor of a newly incorporated "City of East LA".

This evaluation by people, who don't live or work in the City of Los Angeles, is highly suspect and fails to take into consideration the opinion of the residents and taxpayers who have to actually deal with the Los Angeles City bureaucracy. This appears to be the work of superficial and under-researched sources, and should not be taken seriously.
