Outtakes from CD 14 Special Report: "Crying Uncle over CLARTS Fund CPRA Request ....... a little too late"

 Violations of the California Public Records Act do not go well with a certain "Princeton Graduate Dear Charro's" City Attorney aspirations.
CD 14 Chief of Staff Ana Cubas stonewalling on disclosing the status of the CLARTS Fund ........ again. (** BTW, not good for someone thinking of running for City Council in CD 9) 
CD 14 El Sereno Field Office Director Arturo Gonzalez relaying information on disloyal constituents to the "Princeton Graduate Dear Charro".
Good Morning CD 14 City Councilman Jose "Princeton Graduate Dear Charro" Huizar and staff!
As your El Sereno Field Office Director Arturo Gonzalez was out and about these last few weeks recruiting potential candidates for the El Sereno Neighborhood Council (after all, every insecure politico needs to micro-manage all community groups in his fiefdom). Somewhere on his desk back at the office, or in route to his boss Chief of Staff Ana Cubas is this request from sometime back (January 31, 2012).
To:  Ana Cubas, Chief of Staff, Councilman Jose HuizarDate:  January 31, 2012From:  Scott Johnson, LA 32 StakeholderRe: California Public Records Request on the status of the CD 14 CLARTS Fund
Chief of Staff Ana Cubas,
This is a request under the rights accorded me under the California Public Records Act for updated information on all expenditures and transfer of funds from the CD 14 CLARTS Amenities Fund from October 1, 2010 to the present.
Please note that this Public Records Request includes all expenditures made from funds transfer to the CD 14 Salary Account from the CLARTS Fund, as noted in past CAO mid-year budget reports.Feel free to respond to this request within the time standards as noted in the California Public Records Act.

The hard copy of this request was given to CD 14 El Sereno Field Office Director Arturo Gonzalez at the February Meeting of the LA-32 Neighborhood Council and what type of response does one get from CD 14 on a time sensitive request such as a California Public Records Request? NONE   But as we enter the month of May, an organization out of Sacramento "Californians Aware" (** this is the same organization that just won an open meeting case against the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors) took interest in our post about Councilman Huizar's refusal to reply to our CPRA request.

From: Terry Francke
To: outwardscottla32@yahoo.com Sent: Sunday, March 4, 2012 5:16 PMSubject: Fwd: Google Alert - "Public Records Act" CaliforniaDear Scott,Please let me know if the response to your CPRA request is unsatisfactory. Terry Francke General Counsel 2218 Homewood Way Carmichael, CA 95608 Phone        916.487.7000 Fax            916.487.7999              Web http://www.calaware.org/home-original.php Blog http://www.calaware.org/blog/    Forum http://www.calaware.org/forums/phpBB3/  

Thus, on May 3, 2012 we can tell General Connsel Terry Francke of Cal Aware that the Office of City Councilman Jose Huizar has not responded at all to our CPRA request dated January 31, 2012. Further, we seek Cal Aware's assistance in accessing the information requested and that it be made public in a way that anyone can access. We should note that this is not the first time that the Office of Councilman Jose Huizar has attempted to block disclosure on the status of the CLARTS Fund as the LA Weekly reported.  

In closing, this information was made public to the stakeholders and the board of the LA-32 Neighborhood Council last evening, which prompted CD 14 Staffer Arturo Gonzalez to comment at the end of the meeting, that a letter on the CLARTS Fund CPRA request would be forthcoming, to which we reply, a little too late (via the standards of the CPRA) for that Arturo.

Your thoughts..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

Who is saying that Charro, Councilman Jose Huizar is a graduate from Princeton? He went to Princeton, but I have never heard him say he is a graduate of Princeton. He did take some program from Princeton.

To find out whether or not Huizar went to and/or graduated from Princeton, you should just ask him and/or tell him to post his degree online. I am sure he would be happy to clear the uncertainty that is pondering your mind.

To: 5/20/12 posting...We have been waiting for Huizar to post his degree since May 20, 2012? What is the ETA Huizar? Where is it? Should not be a problem to produce if you really graduate from degree from Princeton.

This week another $17,000 transfer out of the CLARTS FUND for the VOICE PICO HEADQUARTERS ON WILSHRE.
We see money withdrawn from CLARTS FUNDS however, it never explains the specific of how the money will be used, and how will it benefit CD14 OR Boyle Heights, and money withdrawn for salaties, who is getting paid from the CLARTS FUND?
it better not have been ANA CUBAS, as that was no benefit for CD 14 COMMUNITY. Wendy Greuel refused to audit the CLARTS FUND, a cover up, maybe she got money to from the CLARTS FUNDS. wHY WOULD ANYONE VOTE FOR GREUL when she really did not get her job done. LA is so corrupt that is not difficult to locate missing funds, but she exagerated on the money.... See LA TIMES NEWS.
