Sign of a new Political Time at City Hall as CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar is brushed aside, while Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Council President Herman Wesson and LA County Board of Supervisor Gloria Molina, announce J-Zay-promoted Labor Day Concert at Grand Park.
As Mayor Garcetti moves forward in announcing J Zay's promoted Labor Day Concert at Grand Park, Councilman Huizar is reduced to finding friendly media venues to pout.
Great Monday after Easter to all as today has the bloggin aura of the first day after Spring Break, with everyone wanting to know what you did during your time away, or in this blogger's case, what political theatrics were missed during our keyboard embargo.
Then the two guys and Paulette Simpson-Gipson, Compton NAACP president, contacted me about their problem with Ridley-Thomas and the rest is history. On March 21 at 4:19 p.m. MRT sent me an email stating: “We need to talk. You’re about to get me fired!!!!.” Then at 5:44 p.m. he sent me this one: “You need to stop busting my chops! Who has taken my place anyway? (maybe affectionate little short guy Herman Wesson?) I want to kill him!” To which I responded at 5:44 p.m.: “No one has taken your place. It is and has always been the people first and MRT second, with SRT a closing third! Betty.”
(makes you wonder what went down in Ridley-Thomas new Garage Man Cave
in better times between these two??)
........ but Betty is not ready to rekindle this political fling anytime soon, judging by the following parting shot.
I’ve got a lot of juicy news about Ridley-Thomas’ chosen candidates for election I want to tell you about next week. It reminds me of the late great blues singer John Lee Hooker’s hit: “It serves you right to suffer.” The sentiment is apropos.
Dedicated to LA County Board of Supervisor Mark "Home Renovation Thomas".
