Evening Update: Did USC/Supervisor Hilda Solis Discriminate in the Expulsion of Stakeholder/Blogger from supposed "PRIVATE" Meeting?
Mayor Sam Exclusive: USC/Supervisor Hilda Solis's PRIVATE Biotech Corridor Outreach Meeting (Only Hand-picked Community Members Invited))
Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis on February 26 called on the University of Southern California to embrace and support community residents as it moves forward with plans to build a biotech research park at its Health Sciences campus, adjacent to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. To be successful, USC must design its research park to ensure “people are invited to come down the hill, or across the freeway or even from the other side of town” to work or study at the campus, Supervisor Solis said.We would like to give the benefit of the doubt that Supervisor Solis is true to her words regarding USC' need "to embrace and support community residents (not just those supportive enablers being offered Trojan largess, allegedly), but in witnessing ysterday's proceedings (before our expulsion), the words above smack of empty, meaningless verbiage, considering the exclusiveness of those invited ........., who included the following;
the dubious distinctions of being expose of misusing Public Funds (ie. writing checks to self) and supporting Liquor Licenses for 7 Eleven.

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Thursday
Records on file with the secretary of state’s office show that VictoryLand Partners, a consulting firm registered to Bauman’s home address in North Hollywood, has been paid $12,500 a month since early February to consult with the pharmaceutical industry and its allies that are fighting the measure.Last year, Bauman reported receiving more than $100,000 from VictoryLand Partners, some of it paid by health care interests. VictoryLand was active in the industry’s successful campaign against Proposition 46, the November 2014 ballot measure that would have lifted the cap on damages in medical malpractice lawsuits.
While we can chuckle at this latest example of "Do As I Say, Don't Do As I Do Leadership" from a ranking Democrat Party Official, its interesting to note that this "Teachable Moment (again) in Democratic Political Hypocrisy", originated in a Northern California publication.
Thus, we can assume that there are those in the No.Cal Democratic Party Faction, that do not want to see So. Cal Democrat Bauman, replacing John Burton as the State Democratic Party Chair ......... and when that person is profiting from the same industry that party activists are seeking to place price controls on via an Initiative, then you have the makings of a intra-mural party brawl/blood-letting.
** As the MUCH-anticipated Montebello Calderon Crime Family Corruption Trial came to naught as Brothers Tom and Ron pleaded "Guilty to the Obvious (which remaining silent on others, for now)", we have received information that pre-trial proceedings in the LA County Assessor Office Corruption Trial, featuring John Noguez will begin on July 12.
** we bring you this Bloggin Public Service Announcement on an Important Meeting next Tuesday in Boyle Heights ............, featuring the Los Angeles Police Commission. We will extrapolate more on the numerous sub-plots in a later post, but we STRONGLY encourage the crime-ravaged constituents of the Northeast and Hollenbeck Divisions to attend ............, and DEMAND accountability (especially for a certain CPAB engaging in inappropriate actions)..

Mayor Sam Exclusive: LA-32 NC attempts to Approve Fiscal Year 16/17 Budget without Community Input
Happy Monday! Attached is the agenda for the special meeting of the General Board. It will be at 6pm tomorrow at Absolute Towing, 4760 Valley Blvd. For those of you who haven't been there, Absolute Towing is nice enough to let us use their conference room for special meetings. I'll try to keep the meeting as brief as possible, but there are a few items that we need to attend to before the changing of the fiscal year (like the WHOLE budget?). I assure you that special meetings won't be a regular habit (unless the Councilman requires it). Please make every effort to attend as we will need quorum. Also, if you haven't done your financial training yet, please do so as it's mandatory to vote on financial items. Thank you so much for your efforts!Most sincerely,Jen MarkewychPresidentLA32 Neighborhood Council

Mayor Sam Exclusive: Who is REALLY LA-32 NC Board Member (and new Land Use Committee Chairperson) Miguel Eduardo Vargas??
In the recent LA-32 NC Election, the NC link on the Empower LA Website contained the following Bio on West Region Candidate "Miguel Eduardo Vargas (with no photo attached)" for review.
I grew up in El Sereno as a kid and now, as an adult, I have bought my first house in Hillside Village. It has always been my dream to return to the beautiful neighborhood in which I grew up. Throughout my life, I have always felt it necessary to give back to my community which is why I volunteer for church fundraisers, participate in community cleanups, and am a LAPD Booster member. At this point of my life, I'd like to get more involved with the El Sereno community and ensure our neighborhood is receiving the services we deserve. I enjoying reading, bicycling, hiking, making kites and perfecting my salsa. -Miguel Eduardo Vargas
Vargas, garnered a total of 36 votes in finishing second to recent Cal State LA Grad and Cesar Chavez Elementary LA Best Employee Kathy Leal (42 votes), within the Top Three for the available West Region Seats.
But as we note below, Vargas like Leal, conveniently omitted from their respective Campaign Bios, pertinent information regarding "Professional/Political Connections" that may have caused voting Stakeholders to question the objectivity of the, NOW........., NC Board Members.
Effective April 6, the organization that provides cleaning, safety and other services to the growing community will be helmed by Miguel Vargas, the legislative deputy for 14th District City Councilman José Huizar. Vargas, a University of Southern California graduate, has worked for Huizar for three years. Dilip Bhavnani, the chairman of the board of directors for the ADLA BID, described Vargas as “extremely hard working, dedicated and passionate — a person who is going to be an invaluable resource in the neighborhood.” Huizar spokesman Rick Coca said the councilman is happy for Vargas’ upward move. “It’s great,” said Coca. “The councilmember has always been one to encourage people to take the next step forward, and this is clearly the next step forward.”
In lieu of our earlier post, regarding the recent Electoral Hard Times afflicting current and ex Huizar Staffers, we can understand why Vargas would want to keep his "Huizar Past" undisclosed. But with Vargas selection as the NC's Vice-President ..........., and appointment as Chairperson on the Land Use & Development Committee, discerning Stakeholders (with the exception of USC) are surely to question his objectivity in facilitating the duties of the important Committee.
