What is a constant in CD 14 besides the sun rising over Alhambra each morning, a certain elected official reminding his constituents that he graduated from Princeton or another CLARTS Fund Public Records request being ignored? How about the living, growing "CD 14 Ex Huizar Staffer List"?
The likes of Joe Avila, Alvin Parra, "Big and Little Frank", Celina Mancia and Henry Casas are just a minute few that grace the CD 14 Ex Huizar Staffer List, but they are about to gain a new inductee in the form of soon to be Ex El Sereno Field Office Director Arturo "Papa Puffs" Gonzalez.
Gonzalez is well known to Mayor Sam readers for his diligence in "maintaining contact" with his constituents through various devices and city resources.
Whether it was ensuring that protesting constituents were protected in expressing their First Amendment rights (while subjecting themselves to possible downgrading on the councilman's loyalty list for speaking ill of CD 14's leader), Gonzalez was front and center in espousing the pronouncements of his (ex) boss.
Gonzalez was never far from reporting on the actions of his constituents. Yet, when asked to update the community on various projects such as Elephant Hill, Food for Less, Crime, the CLARTS Fund and El Sereno Park Advisory Board, the response from his office would be predicated on your supposed loyalty to the "Princeton Graduate Dear Charro Corleone".
With Gonzalez heading off into the well-traveled path of Ex Huizar Staffers towards the sunset of their CD 14 service, Gonzalez may want to take time to join his former constituents in listening to their respective concerns, instead of being the spokeshole who's job it was to spin the directives of his ex boss. But most ex Huizar Staffers know that even in resigning from work in CD 14. Huizar's shadow is lurking if they dare speak ill of their former boss.
