Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

If you are Steve Veres, who is seeking to become the first local politico in recent memory to serve on two different City Clowncil Central Committees, its never too early to raise money (and set aside cash for future campaign debt) ..........., especially when you are a client of "Private Citizen/ Campaign Consultant" John Shallman.
See CD 4 City Clowncil Central Committee Candidate (via the San Fernando City Clowncil Central Committee and LACCD Board of Trustees) Steve Veres smile now, before potentially-becoming the latest client debtor of "Private Citizen/ Political Consultant" John Shallman.
Nice of Steve Veres Boss and soon to be State Senate President Kevin De Leon, to lend his name to this "future Shallman Campaign Debt Fundraiser".
No one can claim that this blogger does not have a kinder and gentler side ......, on rare political occasions.
When now to be California State Senate President Kevin De Leon was dumped on the couch (allegedly) of Mt. Washington's  Mr.and Mrs Carol Jacquez (the "Bill and Hillary" of Northeast LA Democrats) by former Assembly Speaker (and fellow San Diego transplant) Fabian Nunez, to become the LA Political Machine's designated Assemblyman, an ambitious San Fernando Politico helped soften the carpet-bagging transition, through quality Constituent Services that embarrassed a certain "Princeton Graduate, turned Dear Charro Politico".
Now nearly a decade later, the former San Fernando City Council Member, who day-lighted as both a Assemblyman and State Senator Kevin De Leon Staffer (while moonlighting as a LACCD Board Of Trustee in an exercise of political resume enhancement) Steve Veres, needs all the monetary help he can garnered in seeking to become the first politico in recent memory to serve on, two, City Clowncil Central Committees ......, and we want to help.
In the spirit of giving, we offer the following ideas to stimulate fundraising for his soon-to-be-costly campaign to replace Tom Lebonge come 2015.
** Sell signed videos of Steve Veres celebrating the San Fernando Recall Victory of those who would later meet the same political fate. 
** Giveaway single use plastic bags, signed by Betty Pleasant, produced in the City of Vernon.
Believe us, we care.
** With the exception of our 2014 Ass Clown Awards, sightings of the former CD 1 City Councilman Ed "Density" Reyes have been fleeting to say the least. But as Mayor Eric Garcetti touts the nearly $1 Billion Dollars in federal money heading west for LA River Revitalization, the supposed Planning Visionary, is the subject of a one, two,  three part KCET Profile.
** Beloved Los Angeles Journalist and Civic Activist Ron Kaye takes a break from retirement to keyboard a missive regarding the dismal state of voter participation in last week's "Greece on the Pacific" (formerly the Golden State) Primary Elections. 
** Surprise, surprise, months after the likes of the new incarnation of the DWP Commission, City Attorney Mike Feuer, Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Controller Ron Galperin united together in calling upon IBEW/ DWP Boss Brian D"Arcy Rizzo to account for $40 Million Dollars in taxpayers money, allocated to the Joint Safety and Job Training Non-Profits, Boss D'Arcy Rizzo is on the distracting, counter attack. Meanwhile, we would like to remind the First Term City Controller of a promise he made at a past LANCC Meeting to audit a "certain CD 14 Councilmatic Fund" as noted in the approved LA-32 NC Resolution below.

We hope that City Controller Galperin does not channel the former City Controller "Villar and Boss D'Arcy Call Greuel" in ignoring request for transparency in auditing the CLARTS Fund.
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
