This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.

This is of interest from the Boulevard Sentinel Newspaper in Eagle Rock from August 8, regarding a Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Fund .......... August issue is on the streets. We will be finishing deliveries today.
The Boulevard Sentinel has been working of a story for the past two months regarding a scholarship program by the Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce. Each year for three years fundraisers were held and money collected. The first and second year students were chosen to received the scholarships. It appears that they were not being paid the money in accordance with the original plan on how to disperse money, but in the end students are receiving their money. The problem is with the third year. The third year fundraiser netted just over $30,000. The problem is no students were ever chosen, and no money given out. It has now been two years since the funds were raised.. Main sponsors, including Forever 21, and Arroyo Vista Health Care have made demands to 'see the books' and to date have not received any satisfactory answers as to why the program has not been implemented. LAPD has been involved, but no charges have been filed against anybody. I was invited to a LH Chamber meeting, but was later told that meeting would not take place. This is an ongoing investigation and I hope to report in the next edition of the Boulevard Sentinel all of my findings.
