Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Wednesday

As residents below the Hollywood Sign continue to express discontent with the tourist influx into their neighborhoods, we have a blogging flashback to remember which CD 4 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Staff, help contribute to the controversy.
From a past blog post: CD 4 City Councilman Tom LaBonge's "Chief of Field Operations" Dave Ahern moonlighting as landscaping worker at supposed Hollywood Sign tourist spot.  Wonder if the project was exempt from CEQA requirements?

Two years later, what is the out-going CD 4 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Tom LaBonge comments about the problem he contributed to?
Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge, who represents the area, believes the problems would be lessened if the tour companies would park at the Griffith Observatory to view the sign.
"I absolutely do support people visiting here from around the world," LaBonge said. "But the impact on the neighborhood has been great."

...... with contribution from your "all hands on staffers".
Did the Lucrative 1% Charter Education Collective Duo of Mr. and Mrs. Mark(os) Aguilar-Ferguson (along with supporter Richard Alatorre), have a good day at the Los Angeles County Board of Education Meeting? Maybe not, judging from this morning's Twitter comment below.

In the Republic of LACOE, all is quiet today. Under a veil of silence evil thrives.
** Mayor Eric Garcetti has already one-up former Mayor Antonio Villar in the area of information technology, as he unveil a new link on his website that supposedly allows you to check in on your favorite city department. In the same spirit of openness and transparency, we call upon City Controller Ron Galperin to create a link on his official webpage that chronicles how all fifteen members of the LA City Clowncil Central Committee, dispense and allocate discretionary funds.
** Sacramento Politicos State Senator Kevin De Leon, Assemblyman Ricardo Lara and Assembly Speaker John (First Cousin of Tony Villar) Perez, got caught up in the emotion of the moment, as the mass crowd at Boyle Heights Resurrection Church, chanted "SHUT IT DOWN!", referring to the City of Vernon Exide Battery Plant. From the LA Times.
At one point in the raucous meeting, the crowd started screaming, "Shut it down! Shut it down!" Pérez and state Sens. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) and Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) clapped in time to the chant.
..... we wonder if Senator De Leon would clap along for a "SHUT DOWN THE CITY OF VERNON" Chant? $50 Million Dollars of Dirty Vernon Money, naught.

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