The late CD 14 City Councilman Art Snyder must be rolling in his Grave as constituents are force to craft Petitions for Basic Services from its current City Councilman Jose Huizar.
The Late CD 14 City Councilman Art Snyder was the Role Model for Constituent Services (and you did not need a stinking petition).
** Blogger's Note:
Long ago in CD 14 Political Folklore (late 1983, early 1984), a then embattled City Councilman Art Snyder
was on KABC Eyewitness Channel 7, debating Recall challengers Steve Rodriguez and Lou Moret. Snyder who was facing a strong Recall challenge (and charges of personal and political nefarious conduct), cited his much-touted reputation for responsive Constituent Services by noting a fluid "In and Out Box Flow" of resolving issues brought to his Office's attention, as a reason for remaining Councilman. Snyder won, only to resign in 1985. Now some thirty years later, the now late Art Snyder would be rolling in his grave in witnessing what has become of Constituent Services in CD 14. This week, the same KABC Channel 7 Eyewitness News reported that Highland Park Senior Citizens were relegated to crafting a Petition to CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar,
demanding a resolution to a stalled restroom modification at the community's Senior Citizen Center, which forced the elderly to use unkempt Porta-pottys. Just recently, we were made aware of the supposed comments of CD 14 El Sereno Office Staffer Julio Torres
, who stated that a Petition may garner faster attention from Councilman Huizar, regarding the Homeless/Artist Colony
on the infamous Elephant Hill.
Simply, this reeks of Constituent Discrimination (as documented via "Listgate" in 2011)
, because we know for sure that the likes of Huizar-loving Hillside Village Property Owners Association would never be force to submit a "Petition" for their desired Valley Blvd "Quiet Zone" ........, right Julio? But maybe we should submit a formal California Public Records Act Request (CPRA) to Julio, on what happen to the $5,000 given to the supposed El Sereno Chamber of Commerce? Just a thought---Scott Johnson.
Homeless/Artist Colony on El Sereno's Elephant Hill.
Does Julio Torres practices what he recommends, especially for those who are documented CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar Supporters?
When did it become a CD 14 Constituent Services Policy that you must start a Petition for Basic Actions?
