Meet your new City Council Leadership

Blogger notes: As expected, CD 10 City Councilman Herb Wesson became the first African-American President of the City Council which did not mean much to African-American colleagues Councilwoman Jan Perry and Councilman Bernard Parks who was excused and sick respectively from today's historic meeting. We should note and have reported that both Perry and Parks had express strongly their respective concerns about the actions of now Council President Wesson staffer Andrew Westall and his role with the Redistricting Commission---Scott Johnson. 
 New City Council President HerbWesson thanks to staffer and Redistricting Commission Executive Director Andrew Westall's backroom dealings. The Wesson/Westall arm-twisting cause Councilman Bernard Parks to get the flu and City Councilwoman Jan Perry to seek an excuse from today's proceedings.
 New City Council Pro Tempore Ed Reyes, sought title in his last term at City Hall and his colleagues bestowed the number two rank on the friend of 7-Eleven.
 CD 4 City Councilman Tom LaBonge with family, was appointed to the number three position of "assistant president pro tempore" by his colleagues in his last term.
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

I have been critical of your coverage of Occupy LA recently, and so, to be fair, I am posting a big thumbs-up for your commentary on Herb Wesson's wheeling 'n dealing. I am an African-American resident of inner-city L.A. and the Black-oriented weeklies are nothing but cheerleaders for the likes of Wesson, Parks, and Perry. Furthermore, the conventional progressive blogs insist on observing "PC" nonsense that you can't tell the awful truth about Democratic Party Machine Hacks from "communities of color." Someday we'll be together and on that great day "the 1%" will really be running scared.

Happy Thanksgiving.
