Cut and Paste Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Scene for Thursday

"Mayor Antonio Parkervillar expresses his disdain of Neighborhood Councils"
Today is Neighborhood Council Election Day!!
Neighborhood Councils in Region G (in the Northeast and Eastside of the city), are up for grabs today. The Eastern Group Publications has done yeoman work in listing the neighborhood councils and their respective polling locations, that are being contested. We provide brief comments in bold.
Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council There are 12 certified and two write-in candidates running for 19 seats on the council that represents Mt Washington, Hermon, Montecito Heights, Monterey Hills, and Sycamore Grove. Polling is at Ramona Hall (lobby) 4580 N. Figueroa St., LA 90065. (Friends of the Southwest Museum's Ann Walnum and her co-horts deserve another term).
Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council 25 certified and four write-in candidates are running for 35 seats on the council that represents the northwest, northeast, southeast and southwest regions of Boyle Heights. Polling is at the Hollenbeck Recreation Center (Boyle Heights Room), 415 South Saint Louis St., LA 90033.( "Battle of the BH Barrio Titans": Its Parkervillar/ Huizar crony Sal Martinez vs. Mayor Sam Friend Jose Aguilar for BHNC President).
Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council There are 10 certified candidates and one write-in candidate running for one of 18 seats on the council that represents eight districts. Polling is at the Eagle Rock City Hall (Community Room) 2035 Colorado Blvd. LA 90041. (Any Huizar staffers, both ex. and current, running for seats on this NC?)
Glassell Park Neighborhood Council There are 9 certified and two write-in candidates running the 15 seats on the council that represents seven regions. Polling is at the Glassell Park Community/Senior Center (Conference Room 2), 3750 North Verdugo Rd., LA 90065. ( "Bradley", Tony and Paula want to continue their "hillside crusade")
Greater Cypress Park Neighborhood Council There are three certified and five write-in candidates running for one of 15 positions. Polling is at the Cypress Park Recreation Center (Auditorium) 2630 Pepper Ave., LA 90065. ( What ever happen to former Prez Art Pulido?)
Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council There are 15 certified and three write-in candidates running for 21 positions. Polling is at the Highland Park Recreation Center (Dining Room), 6150 Piedmont Ave., LA 90042. ( Do the victors in this race, get to spend $$$$ on local restaurants?) ** Franklin High School students are organizing a unofficial write-in campaign for vacant seats in this election.
LA- 32 (El Sereno) Neighborhood Council There are 17 certified and no write-in candidates running to hold one of 21 positions that represent 4 regions. Polling is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the El Sereno Senior Center (Lobby/Music Room) 418 Klamath Place, LA 90032. (No word on whether Marcos Aguilar and outgoing Presidente Hugo Garcia, will bless these elections with an Aztec Sacrifice).
Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council There are 28 certified and 3 write-in candidates running for 26 positions that represent 7 regions. Polling is at the Lincoln Park Recreation Center (Senior Room), 3501 Valley Blvd., LA 90031. ( Its the grass-roots movement of "Club Lincoln" against the old-guard elitists "Action Slate")
Historic Cultural Neighborhood Council. Polling is at Pico House within the "El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Area". (Vote for Tenants Rights at El Pueblo!!)
Elysian Valley Riverside Neighborhood Council. Polling will take place on Friday April 29, 2010 at Elysian Valley Recreation Center. ( What about renaming this NC the "Frogtown NC"??)
** BTW, if anyone of these NC's is looking for voters, they may want to contact San Pedro's Doug Epperhart. You may remember Epperharts "travels" in the 2008 NC Elections, which he became "Mr. Stakeholder to all".
** Business as usual at 200 Spring Street. Billionaire and "shadow Mayor" Eli "Lord" Broad has a home for his "museum to self" on Bunker Hill and one can't beat the rent rates that "Lord Broad's political underlings" bestowed upon him, $1.00 per year. A just rent befitting a "Angelino Lord".
** The murder trial for former State Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez's son is set to begin soon in San Diego. LA Weekly's Christine Pelizek has the background on the upcoming legal proceedings.
** What would my "Bloggin Friend Joe B." say if the nation-wide Tea Party Movement was Black?

This teabag movement could never be a black-led effort because it isn't about taxes, it's a gathering place for people who can't accept the fact that we have a black president.

Why should Angelenos, including neighborhood councils, support the LACK of LEADERSHIP Los Angeles Council UNINFORMED decision to increase DWP rates?

The SOLUTION is simple just boycott the DWP rate increase by making all purchases outside the city of Los Angeles. Specifically big ticket items, like cars, etc.

There is no such thing as El Sereno Neighborhood Council, the only accurate title would be.... LA-32 Neighborhood Council. I have already voted for todays Election and am assured a position, if any Aztec sacrfice will be happening it will have to take place outside the United States of America. Nothing of the sort will take place in this town..... Rose Hills or any other community served by LA-32 NC.

Rose Hills Review, stands for Red White and Blue.

Looks like Lincoln Height's Action Team is already pulling illegal stunts. They filled a LAUSD bus with the marching band during school hours to go vote for them.

Wonder if they had permission slips - MAJOR liability.

Also...LAUSD? Wow, I thought money was tight in the City. Using an LAUSD bus sounds illegal, no?

"Ann Walnum and her cohorts" - boy you really don't know spit about that neighborhood council, do you?

Half the current group don't know what the Southwest is, and most of the rest don't care one way or the other whether it ever reopens as a museum.

There would never be any black tea baggers. Very few anyway. A few misguided blacks. Parks, ha ha ha. Condoleeza Rice, a few black people that wanted to rebel maybe. But even they wouldn't be tea baggers. Go look at the you tube videos.

White, redneck, stupid, racists, who hate anyone who isn't white and Republican. They were awful.
