Mid-day Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Hump Day

Its time to fluff up the Mitch Englander Portfolio as the lone "Spring Street RINO" announces his intentions to seek the LA County Board of Supervisor Fifth District Seat being vacated by Michael Antonovich. 
Fluffing the Mitch.
Is the "Spring Street RINO" seeking a higher calling (and opportunities for connected family members)?
Just over a month remove from winning another (elongated) term as the lone, supposed Republican City Councilman from CD 12, Mitch Englander is using the safety net of re-election to seek the District Five Seat on the LA County Board of Supervisors being vacated by termed out Michael Antonovich.
The noted prolific, cross party lines fundraiser, should instantly become a frontrunner in the seemly lone Republican safe seat on the Board of Supervisors.
But its those crossover tendencies that a more strident Republican candidate may exploit in attempting to counter the Englander Political Machine.
** Talking a puff from the pipe of wishful, future fiscal expectations, the LAUSD Board of Education voted to approve a 10.36% Pay Raise for its teachers, pending UTLA approval. District Officials are predicating the allocation toward the future salary increases on a spike in state revenue. If for some reasons the wishful revenue does not materialize, expect some very lean times ahead at LAUSD.
** In a major setback for the CIM Group, all five members of the Department of Building and Safety Oversight Commission voted to order the owners of the "Sunset and Gordon Highrise" to remove dozens of its tenants from the controversial property. This whole FUBAR has its origin in a lawsuit by a community group who sued the CIM Group for destroying an historic building to make way for the current development.
