Councilman Huizar's excuses to mask retaliation against Eagle Rock's Colombo's Steakhouse

Eagle Rock's Colombo's Steakhouse. Councilman Jose Huizar's office tried multiple excuses to mask retaliation against the Italian Eatery General Manager Vic Parrino.
CD 14 Eagle Rock/ Northeast Area Director Zenay Loera (in black coat) was Councilman Huizar's front person in contacting ABC to explain Huizar's withdrawal of support for Colombo's Special Alcohol Permit for the Eagle Rock Music Festival. According to sources, Loera told a ABC official that Colombo's General Manager Vic Parrino's support of former CD 14 Candidate Rudy Martinez was the reason for their opposition to permit for the Colombo's Beer Garden at the Eagle Rock Music Festival.
Councilman Jose Huizar's Communications Director Rick Coca was busy crafting the perfect excuse to mask the retaliation against Colombo's. If the fire truck access excuse doesn't work, then lets use this .......Vic had operated the beer garden without a permit for all the previous years, and CD14 thought there were plenty of opportunities for people to drink on music fest night without a "beer garden". But Coca maybe should of taken more time to craft his false spin against Colombo's considering that Councilman Huizar has taken campaign contributions from the like of 7-eleven.
Further concern for Coca should be the growing thoughts that the stonewalling by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) on a Public Records request for financial records on the Ramona Gardens Resident Advisory Board (RAC), may have to do with public money being paid to the likes of Councilman Huizar's supporters Martha Gonzalez and Liliana Martinez, to advocate for community amenities such as "more beer and wine selling 7-Elevens" Thus, for the likes of Councilman Huizar, Loera, and Coca, they should understand that vindictive actions may bring on a case of painful political flashbacks and future ethical headaches.
Your thoughts..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
