Matt Dowd weighs in on L.A. City golf cart concession agenda item from today's meeting. Zine said he was never lobbied so hard on anything, from both sides, in his eight years at Council and sure seemed to be about one of the biggest deals I have seen made by Council. Here's what Matt has to add on this shady item: I was in committee when that golf cart vending item came through the agenda. Bong is trying to hose off the concession to his buddies. they been tryin for months. in committee was a joke. Janice just went along, I couldn't believe it. that committee was the biggest problem with the City. only Janice and Tom sitting, because Jan Perry was never there with those two, so they ran it, that's fucked up. Tom tried to hose in his golf buddies with the cart concession. Effective Sept 1 though all the committees changed. NOW Wesson and Reyes are on the Arts Parks and Aging Committee, so that's why LeBong's stuff is getting thrown out now. I need Councilman Saltsburg to fight for my vending concession on Venice y'all. - Matt Dowd
ZUMA DOGG RANTS ON BIG 3 CITY HALL INSIDER CANDIDATES TO LA WEEKLY REPORTER: Thanks to LA Weekly for calling Zuma Dogg for some quotes on a few of the candidates. "Goes Along" Galtzan, Krackwhorian and E$$el were making me especially cranky at the time of the call. My cell phone charger is broke, so I had to hustle the AT&T store for a free call to give the interview. YES, the candidate who can do MORE with LESS! Outside the box thinking to get the job done! AND ZD MAKES THE INTERVIEW AND SLAMS THOSE WHO DESERVE IT MOST! (The Three Stooges: Paul/Moe, Chris/Larry, Tamar/Curly)
TAMAR'S HARDLY ATTENDED FUNDRAISER: I saw someone who was at Tamar's fundraiser, last night. Says Galatzan only had about 15 people there I am told. And I know who a couple of them were (her existing supporters), so she's not exactly setting the district on fire.
ELECT ZUMA DOGG TO RUN INTERVENTION ON L.A. CITY COUNCIL ADDICTION TO STATUS QUO: I was thinking about Los Angeles City Council and the siginficance if David Saltsburg (Zuma Dogg) is put in the council seat by The People on September 22, 2009.
And the reason I thought of the significance, is because I was thinking of the poor souls of L.A. City Council who are boiling to death in their own addiction!
The city is headed straight for the buzzsaw and it appears as though they are all standing around helpless to do anything about anything.
Look at the budget they are still struggling with. They NEVER should have been in this predicament. Even Councilmember Bill Rosendahl couldn't take it today, as council was forced to make a complicated, last minute decision on the golf cart concession operators at the city golf course as he blurted out in frustration, ""Why do we always wait till the last day to do something around here!" WELCOME TO THE ZUMA DOGG CLUB, BILL!
And I look at the fifteen councilmembers (fourteen, for now until the CD 2 election) and say to myself, these aren't bad people. They can't be this much of a bunch of dumb f*ck ups? And I mean that. So what it comes down to is these people are just sick addicts. Addicted to the staus quo. Addicted to business as ususal. Addicted to simply being able to get away with it cause we could afford it and it was just accepted.
NOW IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE (as if it ever were), BECAUSE WE CANNOT AFFORD IT, AND THE FRAUD, WASTE AND ABUSE (and corruption) IS BEING EXPOSED AND LIKE AN ADDICT WHO HAS HIT ROCK BOTTOM, IT IS TIME TO CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR BECAUSE YOU CANNOT CARRY ON AS YOU USED TO IN YOUR ADDICTED BEHAVIOR. But now you can't stop. You have become like a functional addict who keeps robbing others and losing your soul to keep your addiction going.
And now you don't even know how to do anything else or behave any differently.
SO THAT'S WHAT ZUMA DOGG IS FOR!
HE IS THE CITY COUNCIL INTERVENTION SENT BY THE PEOPLE TO START PRESSING THE BUTTON AND TALKING LIKE DR. DREW!
And it will be such a message to City Hall if you send me into that council seat, that would add leverage to the seat. Can you imagine, "Sorry, although it would be easy for me to go along with the other councilmembers on this one, I have to remember this (insert b.s. council issue) is what The People of CD 2 sent me here to do. So I have to vote "NO" on this, and here is why the other councilmembers should remember The People are watching how YOU vote, too." And maybe slowly we can start to break up all these unanymous votes, and occasionally stop something from getting passed. (Like when they wait until the last day for something and need a unanymous vote or else it has to come back the next week for a second vote...BUT that means it will be too late. So sometimes ONE NO vote can stop something.
END CITY COUNCIL'S STATUS QUO ADDICTION!
SEND THEM AN INTERVENTION ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22nd!
ELECT DAVID SALTSBURG (Zuma Dogg) TO L.A. CITY COUNCIL (CD 2)!
