TGIF Afternoon Political News Dump 1-27-12: City Council President Wesson dumps Parks and Perry from key Committee Chairmanships

 Revenge brings a smile to City Council President Herb Wesson.
Councilman Parks and Councilwoman Perry face the wrath of Council President Wesson ..... and Mayor Antonio Villar.
These acts of political payback defiantly qualify as Friday bad news dump for the City of Los Angeles. City Council President Herb Wesson send a clear and city-wide resonating reminder that you don't snub the new Council President election proceedings by removing City Councilman Bernard Parks and Jan Perry from the Chairmanships of the Budget and Energy & Environment Committees respectively.
The lost of Councilman Parks especially, from the Chairmanship of the Budget Committee, is sure to garners gasps of "Holy Sh..!" from budget watchdogs across the city. It was the fiscally-conservative Parks who kept the lid on many of the "progressive spending proposals" of Mayor Antonio Villar, a close ally of Wesson. Surely somewhere this Friday afternoon, Mayor Villar is smiling on Wesson's actions.
Sure to engender more glee from Mayor Villar and the likes of IBEW strongman Brian D'Arcy, is the replacement of Jan Perry with CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar on the Energy and Environment Committee. Councilman Huizar will now be in position to push through his "Political Papi's" rate increases at the DWP and in return receive copious amounts of contributions from the coffers of IBEW.
..... and Happy Hour cannot start soon enough for the screwed "Shakedown City on the Pacific".
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14.
** BTW, how much political soul did Councilman Paul Krekorian pay for the Chairmanship of the Budget Committee?
