Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Hump Day
As CD 8 City Councilman Bernard Park enters the latter part of his last full week on the now City Clowncil Central Committee, the half century Public Servant is providing a teachable moment for future, aspiring politicos how to exit public office (with character and integrity intact).
While his fellow termed-out colleague CD 4 City Clowncil Historian Tom LaBonge was the recipient of a back-slapping send off yesterday under the John Ferraro Clowncil Chamber Big Top, Parks has been giving interviews with the likes of Downtown News Editor/Scribe of Wit Jon Regardie and LA Weekly's Hillel Aron, which are full of priceless Parks anecdotes.
The supposed "solitary voice of the local political wilderness", is charging into the public service sunset with a "Documentary of Self", is set to premier next Tuesday but in the interim, we proudly cut and paste, the best of Parks, in the spirit of reminding those, that integrity and character, are true political virtues.
........, and BTW, don't hold your breath in waiting for photos of a Parks City Clowncil Send Off.
** On the current "State of CD 8":
“We’ve not done poorly in the sense of the things we’ve worked on in our district,” he said. “My district is the only one building sidewalks — not because Herb Wesson blessed that, but because we found a way to do that. My district led the city five out of six years in creating jobs. Not because of Herb Wesson, but because we figured out how to do it. These are things we find out, that your success is more dependent on what you do, as opposed to all these little games people play at council, where they believe their life is dependent on what committee they have, where they must bow and genuflect.”
** The early years of CD 4 City Clowncilman Tom LaBong:
"I remember my first couple years. Poor Tom Labonge, I sat next to him for a while. He made me so nervous I couldn’t sit there. He looked at me one day and says, 'I ... I ... I don’t know if you know this, but I don’t pay a lot of attention to these policy issues.' I said, 'No shit! I didn’t know that, Tom.'
"Then something would be coming up, he’d run up and [say], 'Eric [Garcetti], how should I vote?'
"That’s the stuff that goes on.'"
** Comment regarding a certain "Part-time Clowncilman, turn Strongman":
"[Herb Wesson] asked me to vote for him and I said I wouldn’t. And he says, 'Well. I want you to know, a lot of people want to be on the budget committee.' I said, 'Give it to them! I am not gonna vote for you for a committee assignment.' Because I didn’t think he would be the best person for the job."
....., refreshing is truthful candor.
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14.

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday
After achieving what should of been a formality in bringing an end to the Ciudad de Los Angeles "War on Poverty (in reality, Free Enterprise)", with his "Brothers and Sisters-supported" Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee tenatively voting to support a $15 per hour Minimum Wage, the new leader of the LA County Labor Federation, forgot to insert some "small details" into the final ordinance.
Call it a "rookie mistake" but in his short time as the current leader of the Los Angeles County Labor Federation, Rusty Hicks has almost achieve what predecessors Miguel Contreras, Martin Ludlow and Maria Elena Durazo could not, turning Los Angeles into a "Close Shop Municipality"........, but.
Lets say "duel buts".
First, Hick's City Clowncil Central Committee Ally, General Secretary/Strongman Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson, attempted behind close doors, to insert language that would require affected business to pay for twelve employees "Sick Days", but was withdrawn (for now).
Second, and more egregious, was Hicks attempt to add language that businesses with current labor ties (via a MOU), could offer less than the Minimum Wage (after all, the accumulation of dues is paramount to employee's take home pay).
Those "duel buts" snatched away a collective brother and sister union clap of victory, and replaced it with a slap back of hypocrisy ........., but don't expect the "slap back sting" to last long with this current City Clowncil Central Committee desire to embrace Socialism ........, and its share of future dues.
