Councilman (and PLUM Committee Chairperson) Huizar + "enabling Friends" = "Yes on Measure S".
Los Angeles—Today, March 1, The Yes on Measure (S) campaign will hold a press conference with leaders in Boyle Heights to discuss the negative affects of gentrification. The Miami billionaire developers, the Fifteen Group, swooped into Los Angeles in 1998 to transform the Wyvernwood Garden Apartments in Boyle Heights into thousands of luxury housing units. Residence and leaders in the Latino community have been fighting these billionaire developers and the displacement they are threatening, ever since. Supporters, joining Yes on Measure S include: Leonardo Vilchis, the Executive Director of Union de Vecinosa, leasders from El Comité de la Esperanza and community supporters.
When: Wednesday, March 1 at 11:00amWhere: Mariachi Plaza, Boyle HeightsWho: Yes on Measure S, Leonardo Vilchis, Executive Director of Union de Vecinosa and leaders from El Comité de la Esperanza.
Despite numerous pronouncements from CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar regarding his support for the PRESERVATION of the historic Wyvernwood Complex, the blunt reality for the residents is that the DAY is near (especially if Measure S is defeated) for the Fifteen Group's desire to "upscale" their property ........... and BENEFIT the "FRIENDS of Huizar".
Matter of fact, "FRIENDS of Huizar (pictured below)" are garnering contracts city-wide, in shilling for Development Projects that must be approve by the PLUM Committee .......... who Chairperson is Jose Huizar.
The "ROLE of Huizar's FRIENDS" in garnering approval for a certain Downtown LA Project, was made public to many in CD-14 (at a large cost) in an anonymous mailer that insinuated that Councilman Huizar predicated his FRIENDS being compensated ..........., before Development Projects being placed on the PLUM Agenda for review and approval.
We should NOTE that the supposed "Fishwrap of Record (aka. LA Times)" IGNORED (because of their NO on Measure S Editorial?) the fact that a person or group would spend mega-dinero to inform the CD-14 Community of what many, discerning political observers ALREADY know, that Huizar will Play, especially if his "FRIENDS" get paid ....... and the Integrity of your Neighborhood be damned----Scott Johnson in CD-14.
