Jan Perry On The Offensive

If you're running against Wendy Greuel, the one simple but powerful message to get voters to your side surrounds rapidly increasing DWP bills.

One the one hand, the public owned utility has been involved in multi-million dollar boondoggles such as the controversial LA River and San Fernando Valley Children's Museum projects. More importantly, rising salaries - creating pay levels higher than any other comparable utility in the nation - have led to water and power charges that are through the roof for ratepayers.

Much of this can easily be laid at the feet of Wendy Greuel, who as a Councilmember and as City Controller has been the recipient of much DWP union largesse and has actively sought to increase salaries and costs.

A recent LA Weekly piece by Gene Maddaus details this perfectly.

All of the candidates for Mayor have pointed this out during the debates and other appearances. But now Jan Perry is taking it to the voters - with a powerful and dramatic new piece "I Sold You Out." Sure, it's got all the usual campaign mailer devices intend to shock and awe, but it's a simple message - and true.  That message is one of the most potent weapons Greuel's opponents can toss out there - easy for voters to understand and free of the wonkishness of the many other fine messes Greuel has gotten herself into over the years.

Good piece. Jan Perry won't win - but she can help Garcetti destroy Wendy.

Wait for it? While we wait can we look at the LA Times article "banging" Wendy for her conflict of interest battle against the Sunland Home Depot? The site is still empty and her corruption is open for all to see now. Where's the beef? Between Wendy'd buns wrapped in an LA Times paper.

From a old Mayor Sam blogger in today's times story on the Villar Greuel/ Home Depot Conflict of Interest.


Joe Barrett, the spokesman for the Sunland residents' group that opposed Home Depot's efforts, considers Greuel a hero. "If it wasn't for Wendy Greuel there would be a Home Depot on that site right now," he said.

But the ending isn't entirely a happy one for residents. The abandoned K-Mart is still there, a large, vacant gap on an otherwise thriving strip.

"Obviously, this is not what we wanted to happen," Barrett said.

Should of called the Villar Greuel a "conflicted hero".

Red Spot, you PUSSY, you can't even mention who the blogger was that YOU ignored on this story, only to have L.A. Times pick it up? I hope you worthless losers don't repost the L.A. Times version, which tells HALF the story. Hey, Michael...Red Snot can even thank ZD for his gig at Mayor Sam. REMEMBER I PUSHED YOU TO USE HIS AS WRITER, to elevate him from comment section. DOH! No respect...no respect, at all, from nutty goofballs.

No insult or disrespect was intended my friend. Sometimes in our busy lives, we forget or don't notice things to after the fact.

One fact in relation to this story you may remember, is the Jim Alger/ Joe Barrett "Do It Center/ NC Funding Scheme". Here is the link.


Wonder what happen to the Joselitos Video were that scheme was brought up to those in attendance???

Maybe an aborted case of "Waste, Fraud and Abuse" of public funds that the Villar Greuel never called out also?

Take Care Zuma,
