Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Friday
“If a person moved to the city now and heard Mayor Eric Garcetti talk, they’d assume he’s a member of the Tea Party,” Riordan said in a statement. “He isn’t doing anything for the poor but helping the rich get richer -- through these zoning deals on land development.”
LOL!! You got to love the documented Republican Ex. Mayor (with strong RINO proclivities), for comparing the PROGRESSIVE Mayor to the Tea Party ........., when in reality, the Second Term-seeking Rhodes Scholar is engaging in the current Democrat/Republican Establishment Scheme of rewarding their Corporate Development Welfare Donor Class, with value-adding Zoning Exemptions.
BTW, we would like to thank the "Successful Ex Mayor" for being the inspiration behind bestowing the new "Mayor Gar-ce-Tea Brand (of Development) Moniker" on the Density-loving Officeholder.
** Surprise, surprise (naught) that the Trial Lawyers are seeking out positions at the City of Los Angeles General Fund Trough, as the legal fallout from LAPD's Policy-challenged Response to the November 26, 2015 Ferguson, Mo. -related Protest, kick into Class Action Lawsuit mode. With the recent decision to not prosecute noted LAPD Blogger Jasmyne Cannick, based upon violations of the department's official unlawful assembly protocols, expect payouts to total seven figures.
** The early observations on new LAUSD Superintendent Michelle King, does not bid well for the likes of outside reformers and Charter School supporters as the longtime District Educator pans the premise that the nation's second-largest School District is in need of major reforms (while supporting single-sex campuses), as the UTLA-backed School Board pushes back against a Eli Broad-supported Charter School expansion proposal.
Your thoughts ...............
