Great Bloggin Happy Hour Musings on the local political machine for the eve of another Hump Day. Join us as we tip the glass and enlighten you on these political musings that may find their way into someone's decaff morning coffee in the A.M. ; ) --- Scott Johnson..
CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar Chief of Staff Ana Cubas
** Refill please!! Hot political rumor of the day revolves around the public sector future of CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar Chief of Staff Ana Cubas. According to numerous sources, Cubas has retain property in CD 9 fueling speculation that she will be leaving her CD 14 duties soon to seek higher office, that being the City Council seat being vacated by 2013 Mayoral Candidate Jan Perry. Cubas, a Princeton grad like her current boss, had her eyes on CD 1 but may find greener political pastures in the newly Latino majority CD 9
** Lets refill (especially after another glance at the Cubas picture) and share this teachable moment on how to obtain gainful, political employment in CD 14. Its starts with (the only) perfect loyalty and influence (score) in the eyes of your perspective supervisor This after you found the capital to produce tthe glossy cover "Our Town El Sereno Magazine" which was devoid of any contrary commentary about the local councilman. Thus, its no surprise to many that Julio Torrez becomes the latest staffer in CD 14 (just for how long remains to be seen), replacing the recently departed Daniel Andalon in the El Sereno office.
DONE General Manager and possible CD 13 City Council Candidate BH Kim.
** Some comments from the Northeast LA Yahoo Listserve on DONE GM BH Kim possible run for CD 13. BH may need a stiff drink for these.
I have seen him in action. And, he is an arrogrant person. He has run an incompetent department. DONE can not even get bills paid that neighborhood councils submit to them. DONE does not help with disputes either. Kim has done a horrible job running the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE).
But it is his attitude that is the worst. He is just plain arrogant. Those that want him elected will make this another race issue to try to get him elected.
Kim should quit now. If he goes on he is looking at some very bad interviews and debates when people hit him with negitative comments..
A GPNC Bradley connection?
Coming from a person who has no axe to grind and has not seen him in action..> > He reminds me of a typical bureaucrat who see's how people fawn over him and hang onto his words and now he craves something more. He is going to have a huge disadvantage in that a ton of people know him and already dislike him. Touting him as this great new Asian-American symbol is going to be a non-starter, as very few Korean-Americans live in his district. It seems he is not known for his district work at all, but for administering the disasterous NC system which has gone really badly in many areas.> > Local residents need only remember one word and one name to know why Kim has no chance. Here's a hint. The best mayor LA has had in the past 50 years. Yes, Tom Bradley changed LA. But Glassell Park's "Bradley" will be the 5000 lb anchor that sends Kim to the bottom of Echo Park Lake...
..... and these people get out the vote. Not good.
Your thoughts ..............
