Long time, lazy ass and not too smart politician Ramon "Ray" Cortinez was recently appointed Superintendent of LAUSD, after a long battle to kick out the guy Mayor Anotnio Villaraiogsa and his majority-backed LAUSD board didn't want in the first place, and replace him with long-time LAUSD kid-future-fucker, Ray Cortinez.
Zuma Dogg has warned since day one of his activism, three years ago, when AB 1381 was being voted on by the ASSembly, that the goal was to cut the budget of the inspector general so they can take control of the $20 billion in school facilities and construction money, and hand it out to their connected cronies, while percentages of the money end up being bamboozled away from the kids and funneled into expensive front-end loaded management contracts.
AND, if you do a Google search, you will see the FIRST thing Zuma Dogg warned of just before Monica Garcia and Company (Antonio, Inc) took over the school board a couple years ago, besides telling you Kanter would be voted out as President and Monica Garcia would be voted in, I warned you she would try to punt the Inspector General out of the meetings, which she did, and now they are talking about cutting the IG's budget to render him powerless so they can get away with all but criminal activity. (How do you investigate if there IS any...it's not like criminals notify to school board to tell the I.G., you full of shit asshole LAUSD Superintendent, lazy-ass, ride the backs of kids and do what the fuck your money backers tell you to do you shady coward.
BOO HOO HOO! MY NAME IS RAY CORTINEZ...WE HAVE A BUDGET PROBLEM. THE FIRST THING THAT MUST BE DONE IS FIRE THE GUY (CUT THE BUDGET) OF THE PERSON IN CHARGE OF MAKING SURE NO ONE IS ROBBING THE SCHOOL SYSTEM BLIND!
THAT'S THE CUT WE NEED TO MAKE. CUT THAT BUDGET, SO THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY OVER $20 BILLION, THAT'S BILLION YOU DUMB FUCK LAUSD SCHOOL BOARDMEMBERS WHO WILL BE VOTING TO CUT THE I.G.'S BUDGET!!!
YOU BETTER NOT CUT THE I.G.'S BUDGET!
I want every LAUSD parent, teacher and all involved people who care about the future of the school system and therefore, the future of our city, region, State and YES, country to know...
THAT AFTER JUST OVER THREE INTENSE YEARS AS A CITY OF LOS ANGELES ACTIVIST, WHO DELVED DEEP, DEEP, DEEP INTO THE BOWELS OF LAUSD AND THIS SCHOOL BOARD, AND THE CORTINEZ CREW (LONG HISTORY)...
I AM HERE TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT FOLLOWS ZUMA DOGG AND FEELS HE KNOWS WHAT IS REALLY UP...
THAT TALK OF LAUSD SCHOOL BOARD CUTTING THE INSPECTOR GENERAL BUDGET TO A LEVEL THAT WILL BASICALLY NEUTER THE DEPARTMENT...
WOULD BE THE SINGLE SHADIEST, MOST COSTLY, DANGEROUS, SCARY, OUTRAGEOUS, CRIMINAL ENABLING, WASTEFUL, NEGLIGENT, STAND UP AND SHOUT AT THE NEXT LAUSD BOARD MEETING MOVE...that will hurt kids.
So no joke people, I am here to say after three years, this move comes in #1 on the shady charts on Zuma Dogg's ALL TIME CHART!!!
[*=Because we know as L.A. goes, so will go California, then the rest of the country. And the $20 Billion in construction money alone is double the ENTIRE L.A. City operating budget. And Ray wants to take away the watchdog. If Ray were in charge of a bank, I'm sure he would want to fire the security guard, so the tellers he is teamed up with can take the money out of the teller registers while on the job. ]
L.A.'s schools chief proposes gutting watchdog's office
by Connie Llanos, Staff Writer - 06/10/2009
DEFICIT: Inspector general would be mostly sidelined during financial crisis.
Los Angeles Unified Superintendent Ramon Cortines has proposed gutting the district's watchdog Inspector General's Office with a budget cut of 50 to 75 percent, described as potentially "catastrophic" to the department's operations.
The Office of Inspector General has traditionally monitored some of the district's most controversial and expensive projects, such as its multibillion-dollar school construction program and has pointed out waste, fraud and questionable uses of district funds.
"I am considering a cut," Cortines said. "The budget continues to get worse, and I think everything needs to be looked at. ... It's not something I want to do."
He said he plans to ask the office to refrain from performing any audits, except those that look into potential criminal activity, until the district's budget situation improves.
Inspector General Jerry D. Thornton was out of town and could not be reached for comment, but in a written memo he said a 50 percent cut would be "horrific" while a 75 percent cut "would be catastrophic and would not permit the OIG to function as a viable office."
"Such a cut will benefit those that mismanage or steal the District's assets," he added in the memo, posted on a local blogger's Web site.
Thornton said his office has saved the district millions of dollars over the years - including just $37 million in the first six months of this fiscal year.Full article
