Morning Briefs in the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

The cost of the fail eight year "Reign of Mayor Antonio Villar" continues to rise.
** It seems like yesterday that Mayor Villar was posing with the payasos of Cirque de Soleil's as the upscale circus-like entertainment show announced its grand plans for a long run presentation on Hollywood Blvd at CIM's Hollywood and Vine Complex. 
Well ........., those grand plans ran into a fiscal wall of reality as the high end cost of the show equated to low ticket sales, resulting in its demise next month. 
Then there is the issue of the $30 Million Dollars loan from the City of LA Community Development Department and its repayment ............ don't hold your breath.

** Mayor Villar’s labor brothers and sisters among the workers at the Port of LA and Long Beach are facing pressure from him and others, to end the job action that could have disastrous consequences for the local economy in the near future.  

** Mayor Villar’s transportation legacy took a painful hit at the ballot box as Measure J fail to gain the needed to two-thirds margin of the vote by a small percentage.

** Mayor Villar’s political mijo known as the Dear Charro, Princeton Graduate CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar’s own legacy, awaits its final tabulation as Downtown residents (but not the property owners), vote “yay or nay” to taxing themselves $85 Million Dollars for Huizzy’s Choo Choo.

** Mayor Villar’s Fire Chief Brian Cummings would find it wise to have an engine on standby tomorrow as his requested appearance before the City Clowncil Central Committee, is sure to cause sparks regarding his non-resolution on the issue of response times.

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
