"When Gorda Boo Boo met Molina Boo Boo": LAUSD's Monica Garcia new job with Supervisor Gloria Molina

"When Molina Boo Boo met Gorda Boo Boo": A new political working relationship is born.
Hillel Aron of the LA School Report Blog breaks story of LAUSD School Board Member Monica "Gorda Boo Boo" Garcia new job with LA County Board of Supervisor Gloria "Molina Boo Boo".

"Molina Boo Boo's" new employee LAUSD School Board Member Monica "Gorda Boo Boo" Garcia.
Great TGIF to all, especially Hillel Aron of the LA School Report Blog for blessing us with this forthcoming blog post of political, tongue in cheek commentary.
Aron reported yesterday that "Gorda Boo Boo" has now become a "part-time board member" by accepting her new gig with "Molina Boo Boo" as we excerpt below (** with salient thoughts in bold).
In an under-the-radar move ( its hard to envision Gorda Boo Boo doing the limbo under a radar beam, but I digress), Monica Garcia has taken a job in LA County Supervisor Gloria Molina‘s office, which means she’s now a part-time member of the LA Unified school board (with still, a full size presence).
“For seven years, I did the LAUSD Board member job full time,” Garcia told LA School Report. “While I appreciated that intense focus on education, I took this opportunity that came through with Supervisor Molina’s office. I wanted to learn. I respect her a lot ( one "Boo Boo" to another). She is a model for serving for ( double predicate) the public.”

Garcia’s official title is Senior Legislative Deputy, focusing on three areas in particular: the LA County Office of Education ( hmmm, more on that below), the Probation Department and the Fire Department. She took the job in June, shortly before her six-year tenure as school board president came to an end.

“Certainly, my role changed ( elections do have consequences) and it did give me an opportunity to accept a new responsibility,” said Garcia. “Change is good.” ( and added pay is good for my bottom be ....., line).

Maybe her first responsibilities as Supervisor "Molina Boo Boo's" Deputy overseeing the LA County Office of Education, was an under-the-radar lobbying effort to get the LA County Board of Education to overturn the Charter Revocation of the Controversial Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School High School Campus, which was upheld in a vote on Tuesday.

Its been a open secret for years that Supervisor "Molina Boo Boo" had a favorable opinion of the El Sereno Educational Collective, but for political reasons, has never been overt in her support. We understand from sources that "Gorda Boo Boo" was actively lobbying County Board of Education Members, which lit up the political radar screens of those against the school. A petition against overturning the Charter Revocation quickly made the rounds and were submitted to Supervisor "Molina Boo Boo" and her County Board of Supervisors colleagues.

We will report more, once further documentation becomes available.

Your thoughts ..............

Would this imply she is being groomed for Molina's job as supervisor?
