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.
Your thoughts ..............
