Default The all about me Mayor Villaraigosa.

Our Mayor spends most of his time on photo-ops, attending fundraisers, out-of-town trips and very little time on city business. Great article by the LA weekly that details what most of us already knew, he is useless as a Mayor.

What's scarier is that that the LA Times said he has no competition.

"The politician has no strong challengers in his reelection bid, is flush with cash and enjoys a City Council largely in accord with his goals."

L.A. City Council is not much better than the Mayor.

In amidst a huge budget shortfall, the City Council voted to give 1.6 million to Jalisco, Mexico for a book fair. The Council totally disregarding how cash strapped our library system is, still voted to give the federal money away. Dennis Zine was the only member to vote against the grant.

Last year after the major fires in San Diego and the successfull use of the reverse 911 system. The City Council introduced a motion for the city to study implementing a reverse 911 system in L.A., not knowing that L.A. already had one.

I told you all that you should have voted for Bob Hertzberg, but no one listened to me.

that is embarrassing!

The LA Weekly is a reliable source of information & those articles were very revealing of a big ego. But Villaraigosa is a huge improvement over Hahn. If the mayor can actually get construction going on the Wilshire train to Santa Monica, I will be satisfied. That's why it is important that LA receive government funds from the Democratic party\ President Obama

Walter Moore for Mayor.

The LA Times needs to put their liberal bias aside and report that Moore has raised enough money for matching funds, will be in the TV debates, draws thousands at rallys, and is a legitimate candidate.
