Mayor Sam Exclusive, Part 2: Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia turns her back on Latina Water Board Candidate Elba Romo for "Not Paying the Right Price (allegedly)".

In Part Two of our Mayor Sam Exclusive on Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, we disclose that the former City of Bell Police Association-financed Basta Frontperson, allegedly, turned her back on supporting former Latina Huntington Park City Councilwoman and City Clerk, now Central Basin Water District Candidate Elba Romo, for "Not Paying the Right Price". 
As documentation shows, even supposed Anti-Corruption Crusader Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia (with Assemblyman Ian Calderon), has a "Sell Out/Buy Off Price" for her endorsement/support.
With the surprise victory of supposed City of Bell Anti-Corruption Crusader Cristina Garcia to the California Assembly in 2012, many political observers opined that the Basta Spokeswoman could be the Political Trail Blazer for other Latinas in seeking political office, to clean up corruption in Southeast Los Angeles County ........, so they thought.

** Wednesday Morning Update: We received the following reaction from City of Bell Mayor Nestor Enrique Valencia ........., Wow! She never was against the corruption. Just used it to her advantage.

New Request for Judicial Notice submitted in 2012 City of Los Angeles Redistricting Lawsuit

Attorneys for the Plaintiffs in the litigious 2012 City of Los Angeles Redistricting Lawsuit, have filed a Request for Judicial Notice regarding a similar State of Virginia Redistricting Case, that prompted a Three Judge Panel to order a redrawing of unconstitutionally-drawn political boundaries.    
 The Los Angeles African and Korean-American Communities, along with supporters of a fair Redistricting Process, await the decision of United States Federal Court Judge Consuelo Marshall on whether the "Backroom, Racially-motivated Dealings" of the 2012 Redistricting Process, will go to Trial.

Happy 10th Birthday to Us

It was a Thursday evening, October 21st, 2004 when I saw with my Dell Inspiron at the Starbucks at Coldwater and Victory in North Hollywood reading about the demise of The Fourth Floor, the original anony-blog covering City Hall intrigue. The blog runner had decided to shut down because there was intense pressure coming from a few City Council offices to "out" the blogger. I eventually came to know the identity of the Fourth Floor blogger, but not sure if they ever outed themselves, so I won't do it here.

Suffice to say I was pretty disturbed that the forces that be would attempt to shut down such an informative and delicious site that I figured the only thing I could do was try my own blog. Not being a City Hall insider and only possessing an avocational knowledge of local politics, it was a tad bit of hubris on my part to think it could work; but I was in good company - at least three four other blogs emerged from the ashes of the Fourth Floor; sadly none of them lasted more than a few weeks.

What happened next was beyond my biggest expectations. People started reading the blog. Insiders started sending stories. Other writers, journalists and bloggers provided information and technical support. Some joined up as writers. The blog took off. I was soon regularly appearing on talkradio programs, being interviewed by publications, frequently used as a source by the likes of the Daily News, the LA Times, LA Weekly, KCAL 9, KABC Radio, KFI Radio, KRLA Radio and so many others. We were chosen as the website of the month by Los Angeles Magazine. And, we even made the likes of CNN's Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer when we reported that then Councilwoman Janice Hahn had used her city vehicle to illegally park in a handicapped spot.

Then there was that day where we got the biggest to date and since spike in readership - when we revealed the name of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's alleged girlfriend. You know who the lady was; given that she has moved on and has a new life, perhaps we don't need to repeat her name.

Along the way, I met many people, made many friends, even found what I thought at the time was THE love of my life; all of which changed my life in so many profound ways. There jammings, alliances and re-alliances, fights, battles, law suit threats, a protracted battle with a State Assemblyman, battles with fellow staff members and so much more.

In recent times, I have not been able to be as involved with Mayor Sam as much as I was or would like to be. I've had probably as many unrealized dreams for the site as unexpected blessings coming true. I hope at some point life situations allow me to be more involved and truly bring the site to what I think it's full potential could be.

But we made it - ten years. Wow. Not many endeavors last that long.

Mayor Sam has many fathers/mothers and tenders, but were it not for Scott Johnson, we would not have survived. His dedication and tenacity, even when's pissing off the majority of readers, has kept this site alive and vital. I can not recount how much I owe Scott for his major contribution.

I had hoped to do more for the tenth anniversary, perhaps a big celebration, maybe, a special podcast or radio show, a tour of talk radio programs, interviews in other blogs and publications and a whole series of articles about the last ten years (but you can read such a thing if you buy Joseph Mailander's book!). I just did not have the time for that. As it is, I am writing this during a rushed lunch break. Perhaps in the near future, we can celebrate belatedly. But the biggest thing I think we can do to celebrate is to just keep working and getting the word out there. Given the state of Los Angeles these days, we need MayorSam now more than ever. So let's keep it going.

Finally, I want to thank a boatload of people. This is in no particular order and some of these folks I am not even friendly with these days. But they had a contribution of some sort of another. Hopefully, I have not forgotten anyone, but I am sure I probably have:

Guy Weddington McCreary, North Hollywood Activist/Scion, Passes at 77

Guy Weddington McCreary, devoted husband, loving father, philanthropist, community leader and historian, left this earth on October 12th at the age of 77 years, after a brave battle with cancer. Guy leaves behind his loving wife Diane, his son Jon and many devoted friends.

Guy was the venerable patriarch of the historic Weddington family, who owned and developed much of North Hollywood, Toluca Lake and Studio City. Guy's family came to present day North Hollywood in 1886. In 1892 Wilson Weddington, Guy's Great Grandfather, was appointed the first Postmaster of the town of Toluca. He was also Constable of that same community.

Original Farm, Was North Hollywood Business District
The Weddington's original farm included most of today's North Hollywood business district. Their first family farm house remains today on Weddington Street. Throughout their 128 year history in the San Fernando Valley, the Weddington family provided the land or built the first area school (Lankershim school), the first jail, the first and then current North Hollywood fire stations, the Southern Pacific train depot, the North Hollywood Post Office, the El Portal Theater (which the family built in 1926), the Bank of Lankershim, the Weddington Brothers General Store (later Rathbun's Department Store and the Valley's first modern department store) and the North Hollywood Library.

North Hollywood Park Created
During the 1920's the family helped create and dedicate North Hollywood Park, and in later years Weddington Park on land previously farmed by the family. In 1895 the family sold The Southern Pacific land for a train depot (which remains today), and beginning in 1897 the family operated the Bonner Packing Company, which produced and shipped San Fernando Valley fruit across the Nation and around the world.

Pacific Red Car Comes to Valley
By 1907 Bonner Packing was the largest employer in the area with more than 250 employees. In 1910 the Weddington Investment Company was formed and, in partnership with Harry Chandler, Moses Sherman and H J Whitley, they were successful in bringing the Pacific Electric Red Car to the Valley. In the 1950's the family lead the fight to build the 101 freeway through the Cahuenga Pass and later, under Guy's leadership, they would fight to bring the MTA Red Line subway to the Valley. In the 1970's, as North Hollywood was in decline, Guy McCreary lead the fight to bring redevelopment to the community his family had built. Guy helped envision and bring about what is today the thriving "NoHo" community.

Accomplished Historian
Guy was a graduate of North Hollywood High School, Whittier College and he earned a post-graduate degree in Government from the Claremont Colleges. He served as President of the Weddington Investment Companies from 1984 to his death. Among his many accomplishments, he served as a Commissioner on the L A County Commission for Public Social Services and he was Executive Director of the Republican Central Committee of Los Angeles County. Guy's commitment to the community was demonstrated through his leadership and activities with the North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the Jaycee's, Toluca Little League, the Kiwanis Club of North Hollywood, the Key Club and his beloved Campo de Cahuenga; the birthplace of California. Guy was an accomplished historian and in 1974 his highly-acclaimed history of the Mexican revolution "From Glory to Oblivion" was published.

Donations to the Campo de Cahuenga Memorial are requested in Guy's honor.

A Bloggin Public Safety Announcement regarding El Sereno's Cesar Chavez Elementary

A LAUSD response to a California Public Records Act Request discloses some potentially, seriously ethical, fiscal and background screening issues at Councilman Huizar's loyalist Principal Heidi Acosta-Monteo's Cesar Chavez Elementary School in El Sereno.  
 Current Cesar Chavez Elementary School Principal Heidi Acosta-Monteo receiving Certificate of Loyalty/Appreciation from CD 14 El Sereno Staffers Julio Esperias and Julio Torres.
** Blogger's Note: A California Public Records Act (CPRA) Request has disclosed potentially, serious ethical, fiscal and background screening issues at the Cesar Chavez Elementary School in El Sereno. Prompted by concerns from undisclosed school parents and statements from current LA-32 Neighborhood Council Treasurer Michelle Corzantes (who is also the Register Agent of the "Friends of Cesar Chavez Elementary"), a CPRA Request was made to Principal Heidi Acosta-Monteo via LAUSD's General Counsel Office, in seeking to ascertain fiscal and volunteer background screening records. As can be discern from the formal LAUSD response, up to date record keeping is not a priority for the former Sierra Vista Principal (who was judged a "3 for Loyalty and 3 for Influence", by Councilman Huizar via his 2011 "Listgate Scandal"). As we elaborate further below, parents and LAUSD Officials should objectively question why documentation regarding the background training and screening of school volunteers, along with fiscal records pertaining to the "Friends of Cesar Chavez Elementary", are not readily available upon request to the discerning Public---Scott Johnson.    
 Why would Cesar Chavez Elementary Principal Heidi Acosta-Monteo not have any of the requested documentation on file, or is she engaging in a cover up?

Mayor Sam Exclusive: Councilman Huizar leads Supervisor Molina 45-36% in Internal Campaign Poll

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we disclose details (actually the full document) of an internal Councilman Jose Huizar Campaign Poll, that shows him leading Supervisor Gloria Molina by nine points, with 18-22% undecided. 
Councilman Huizar can't rise above 50% in Internal Campaign Poll.
** Blogger's Note: In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we have obtain a copy of an internal Councilman Jose Huizar Campaign Poll (posted below after the jump) that shows the CD 14 Incumbent leading Supervisor Gloria Molina 45-36% in a one on one matchup. In the voter survey by the same polling group commissioned by the Huizar Campaign's Consultant Parke Skelton in 2010, 18-22% were undecided. Further, the poll did not included three other candidates Nadine Diaz, Mario Chavez and Alex San Martin. The results were based upon interviews with 351 register voters who are likely to cast a ballot in 2015. The plus, minus on the polling results are 5.2%. Of interest when reviewing the questions and polling numbers, is the timing of the survey, which was done before the announcement of the "Private Settlement" between Councilman Huizar and his former Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy, regarding her Sexual Harassment Lawsuit against the Princeton Graduate and the City of Los Angeles. In further extrapolating the data from the survey, its readily apparent that despite months and hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in community projects/ name recognition building, the two term Incumbent is in for a tough battle, especially when the Molina Campaign shifts into gear---Scott Johnson.

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday

Today is October 7, 2014 (24 days before Halloween) and already, CD 14 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Jose "Tonto Huevon" Huizar's political skeletons are being exposed by the likes of longtime Bole Heights Chicano Activist Javier Rodriguez in twin, stinging essays on the failings of a "Harvard (was it Princeton?) Mexican Councilman".

As we near the annual celebrations of Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos in CD 14, district constituents should take notice that the sound of rattling skeletons, especially those of a political variety, will become more pronounced and long lasting into the 2015 City Council Campaign.
This is evident via twin stinging essays by longtime Boyle Heights Chicano Activist Javier Rodriguez (of the La Serenata de Garibaldi Restaurant-founding Rodriguez Family)  titled "The Lost Moral Compass of a Harvard Mexican Councilman" (BTW, did Huizar go to Princeton? But I digress)........., and the contents are bound to inflict some politically, painful flashbacks as we excerpt below from Part 1.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: The True Public Cost of the "Tonto Huevon" and "Sancha Francine" Affair/ Sexual Harassment Episode

As Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer proclaims that the Private Settlement between City Clowncil Central Committee Member Jose "Tonto Huevon" Huizar and former Deputy Chief of Staff Francine "Sancha" Godoy, would cost the taxpayers no money, we present the contrary facts that should prompt further investigating.   
Both the "Tonto Huevon" and "Sancha Francine" are all smiles regarding their Private Settlement for reasons of self-preservation.
**Blogger's Note: A bloggin confession for the record. Darn!! The CD 14 / City of Los Angeles Political Trial of the early 21st Century, came to naught and I am still suffering from the bloggin blues. But rest assure, for despite the utterings of City Attorney Mike "Bet Tzedek" Feuer about the taxpayers not having to pay a cent in the "Private Settlement" between City Clowncil Central Committee Member Jose "Tonto Huevon" and his former Deputy Chief of Staff "Sancha Francine" Godoy, regarding her claims of Sexual Harassment, there is still a bloggin missive to be told on the real dollar cost of the nearly seven year, occasional, consensual, sexually-abusive episode (believe what you wish). Based upon numerous discussions with former CD 14 staffers, friends of both subjects and knowing insiders, we partake below in an exercise of bloggin extrapolation, in seeking to pin a true dollar amount on the cost of an inappropriate, narcissism-driven relationship that both parties chose to settle in private, rather than take full accountability in disclosing the truth (and cost to the taxpayers)---Scott Johnson in CD 14.

Introducing alleged, new Clowncilman Huizar Staffer Genny "Godoy" Guerrero

As CD 14 City Clowncilman Jose Huizar reshuffles staffers into Campaign Positions, the "Tonto Huevon" seeks out loyal supporters like Genny "Godoy" Guerrero (allegedly), to fill the void (of a certain ex scheduler?), in executing Constituent Services (to supportive community members).  
Meet the alleged, newest Clowncilman Huizar Staffer Genny "Godoy" Guerrero, who also serves as the El Sereno Bicentennial Parade Committee "Parade Coordinator" along with being a member of the LAPD Hollenbeck Community Police Advisory Board (CPAB).
** Blogger's Note:  With the formality of the Private Settlement between CD 14 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Jose "Tonto Huevon" Huizar and former Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy, regarding her Sexual Harassment Claims, consummated at some undisclosed location, the 'Tonto Huevon" is freed (with wife Richelle's blessing) to resume their collected pursuit of four more years of public-finance existence as the reigning overseers of Ciudad de Los Angeles's CD 14. Surely, with Ms Godoy-Soto exiled to a Bureau of Sanitation position, discerning observers would think that the former Miss Richelle Rios (who may have masterminded the Francine exiting) could feel secure in keeping her "Tonto Huevon" from straying. But its safe to say that old habits (or perverted sense of infidelity entitlements) will not change soon. Thus, if Barrister Richelle does not want another "Sancha Eruption" to interfere with her solitary want of the "Tonto Huevon", she may want to take notice (or look the other way) at her husband's latest (alleged) hire, as we extrapolate upon below---Scott Johnson.

** Blogger's Note: Great Sunday morning from CD-14 as the loyal, high-voting percentage Huizzynistas are waking up to a special gift from the reigning "Tonto Huevon" of the Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee (who went to Princeton). In reviewing the photo above sent to us here at Mayor Sam, its evident that the "Tonto Huevon" will spare no expenditure from any discretionary account (or campaign donor), in seeking a third and last term on the City Clowncil Central Committee. Thus as a bloggin public service, we offer our commentary regarding some of the contents from the Vote Buing/ Survival Bags (and take note of a glaring absence in lieu of recent news).

Morning Briefs on Appeasing the Boss D'Arcy Rizzo Political Machine for Wednesday

Appeasement in Our Time at 200 Spring Street as the Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee, with help from City Attorney Mike Feuer and City Controller Ron "Neville" Galperin sent a proposed settlement of the litigious Boss D"Arcy Rizzo's IBEW/ DWP Joint Safety and Job Training Non-Profits Audits, to the DWP Commission for approval.
From City Controller Ron "Neville" Galperin's Facebook Page: "The agreement protects ratepayer money by requiring the trusts to cooperate fully with my office’s audit before any money is released to them. I believe these actions will make the operations of the trusts transparent and guarantee that the trustees are accountable to DWP ratepayers".
But the discerning observers are musing about the lack of details as noted below .........
Paul Hatfield: The IBEW should not have a say in who represents the city on the trusts' boards. That is a conflict of interest. This settlement should be killed on that basis alone.
Jack Humphreville: Ron Galperin has done a very good job. But why can't we see the agreement? After all, we are the slobs paying the bill. Do you trust City Hall?

Jose G. Castillo Mba: Why doesn't the IRS revoke their nonprofit status??? This is tax payer monies we are talking about!! There should be a criminal investigation if fraud has been committed.
Comments aside, Galperin gives its his best Neville Chamberlin (sans a transparent document to wave at the discerning masses) as reported by Rick Orlov in the Daily News.
 “(We) crafted an agreement that finally brings transparency to the two ... trusts jointly managed by the Department of Water and Power and its largest union,” he said, adding that he looks forward to being able to finally audit the trusts.
Yet, with the details lacking for the public to ascertain, ratepayers, like Winston Churchill in 1939, can't be faulted for questioning the true facts behind the City Clowncil Central Committee Strongman Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson's led efforts to appease, whoops settle with "Boss D'Arcy Rizzo" as exemplified below.
Leonard H Horowitz: Ratepayers will not trust DWP, mayor and unethical city council until the two DWP safety non-profits are audited from 2003. No new rate increases until Brian D'Arcy is removed from union, working Californian's & safety non-profits. In the old days they would have been tarred and feathered and then thrown out of town. 
......, but in 2014, the City Clowncil Central Committee, along with Mayor Garcetti, City Attorney Mike Feuer and City Controller "Neville" Galperin, disclose no documentation on the latest act of appeasing a City Hall Bully.
