"Sing us committee assignments, Garcetti can" (to the tune of Billy Joel's "Piano Man")
Shout out to "The Bloggin Maven of 200 Spring Street"
who continues to produce press releases, documents and the occasional "J-1 puff piece" to "fuel up and tackle your political jones". (morphed into "Maven speak" for a fleeting moment). Her latest "docudump" pertaining to committee assignments
via Council President Eric Garcetti's office is bound to raise eyebrows and alter movement within City Hall. We note some committee assignments and offer commentary below.
** Budget & Finance: Chairperson: Parks, with Koretz, Cardenas, Rosendahl and Englander.
Thoughts: Huizar gets bump from committee but wait and see what committee chair awaits him. Parks is the right person at the right time for this chairperson position.
** Arts, Parks and Neighborhoods: Chairperson Krekorian with Wesson and Reyes.
Thoughts: Rec. and Parks, especially Griffith Park can finally breathe again with Tom Labonge moving to .......
** Board of Referred Powers: Chairperson: Cardenas with Parks, Rosendahl, Reyes and .... LaBonge
Thoughts: The Autry National Center must love LaBonge's appointment to this committee.
** Public Safety: Chairperson: Englander with Zine, Perry, Krekorian and Huizar.
Thoughts: Perfect assignment for LAPD Reservist Officer Englander and keep Huizar away from scoring LAPD officers for "loyalty and influence".
** Public Works: Chairperson Huizar with Parks and Krekorian.
Thoughts: Installing the City of Los Angeles first bike corral makes Huizzy a given for this committee chairmanship.
** Planning & Land Use Management: Chairperson Reyes with Huizar and Krekorian.
Thoughts: Will Reyes advocate for more 7-Elevens? Huizzy will not get to vote yes for another Lopez Canyon Truck School.
** Ad Hoc Stadium: Chairperson Perry with Rosendahl, Reyes, Cardenas and LaBonge.
Thoughts: Will Rosendahl provide the counter balance to "AEG Perry"?
