Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday
If anyone doubted that the former republican, turned opportunistcrat City Councilwoman/ Controller and now “The Villar Greuel Mayor Candidate”, was the anointed choice to continue the reign of the Mayor Villar Political Machine, then defer to the “Boss”.
IBEW 18 Strongman Brian D’Arcy, along with “The Villar Greuel’s” friends in the Entertainment Community, announced the formation of a “Pro Villar Greuel Campaign PAC.
Furthering the premise behind bestowing “The Villar Greuel” on the former Valley Republican, is the disclosure that past Mayor Villar campaign associates Ace Smith and Sean Clegg, will be fronting the operations of the PAC.
In addition to supporting “The Villar Greuel”, the “Working Californians PAC” will also back CD 3 City Councilman Dennis Zine for City Controller and four other city council candidates.
** The bagpipes are nearly ready to announce the demise of City Clowncilman Mitch Englander and “Average Joe” Buscaino’s much-maligned $3-4.5 Billion Street Bond Proposal. Fellow council members Paul Krekorian, Bernard Parks, Jan Perry, Dennis Zine, with Tom LaBonge a possible fifth, stated their opposition to the placement of the proposal on the May, 2013 Ballot.
** In our exclusive on the possible illegal contributions from Bet Tzedek to the City Attorney Campaign of its former Executive Director Assemblyman Mike Feuer, we may have understated the amount of money donated by the city contractor. Fellow City Attorney candidate Greg Smith mentioned in last night’s debate that Feuer was the $30,000 candidate of BetTzedek. We invite the Smith Campaign to clarify their $30,000 claim.
** Outgoing CD 2/7 City Councilman Richard AlarCON disclosed yesterday that he has a homeless son, that wanders the streets due to mental health issues. With now two offsprings with “wandering issues”, we ask whether Councilman AlarCON ever made his CD 7 home available to his son?
** Neighborhood Councils city-wide should commend CD 8 City Councilman Bernard Parks efforts to give them more say in the decision making process at City Hall.
** Downtown News Editor and “Scribe of Wit” Jon Regardie, has a great interview with CD 9 City Council Candidate David Roberts. Roberts, unlike the other candidates in field, has intimate knowledge of the issues on the ground in CD 9 and is worthy to replace Jan Perry on the City Council.
