PROGRAMMING NOTE: Well know L.A. City Activist, Zuma Dogg, will be appearing as "in-studio" guest on KPFK 90.7 FM, this Tuesday at 11pm on Chris Voltaire's new show. (Sorry, City Hall!)
After speaking with some city officials at city hall, this week, about my biggest concerns for L.A. City in 2010, I have finally come across something that may require a Charter Amendment to make happen, although they CLAIM to be dealing with the issue.
BUT ZD CAN TELL...the city's treasury TRULY IS BEING HELD HOSTAGE -- and the people I question and warn over my biggest concerns TRULY ARE POWERLESS OVER DOING ANYTHING I AM CALLING FOR. I do not use the word, "powerless" as in "lack of leadership/spineless," but in the sense that their hands ARE tied -- and may only reflect on what has happened and what IS happening.
SO WITH THAT SAID...tune into this blog Monday morning at 6am for a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT FROM ZUMA DOGG...HIS FIRST PRE-PROMOTED "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT" EVER (since he announced Springsteen Giants Stadium concert tickets were going on sale when he worked at a New York City radio station.)
YES, even the promotional stun of waiting until 6AM MONDAY MORNING to make the announcement, even though I already know what it is, is straight out of the radio marketing book, too.
WITHOUT ANY CLUES...IT'S NOT A FUN/SEXY ISSUE...IT'S NOT ABOUT CUPCAKES OR KITTY CATS... AND IT SURE AS HELL ISN'T SOME NUTTY IDEA TO SPEND BIG TIME, MONEY AND EFFORT ON THE JUVENILE IDEA TO PUT A (50% COUNCIL SALARY CUT) ON THE BALLOT FOR A VOTE -- WHEN THAT WILL ONLY SAVE $1.2 MIL IN SALARY, YOU IDIOTS!!! IT WILL COST YOU MORE TO GET IT ON THE BALLOT...WHY NOT JUST COLLECT THEM MONEY AND PUT IT IN THE GENERAL FUND.
WHAT I CAME ACROSS IN MY DISCUSSIONS WITH CITY OFFICIALS, THIS WEEK...IS THAT THE CITY TREASURY IS BEING HELD HOSTAGE -- AND THE MAYOR, COUNCIL, CAO, CLA, CITY ATTORNEY, DISTRICT ATTORNEY OR BARACK OBAMA CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.
SO WHATEVER LITTLE NIMBY ISSUE YOU PLAN ON FIGHTING FOR IN 2010...IT IS AT RISK, OVER THIS ISSUE. (But you probably won't care, cause it's not a POKE in the eye to your councilmember, you small-potatoes, personal-NIMBY crybabies.)
BUT FOR THE REST OF THE SERIOUS PEOPLE IN THE CITY... MONDAY @ 6AM YOU CAN READ WHAT ZUMA DOGG CONSIDERS TO BE THE TOP AND ONLY ISSUE WORTH SCREAMING ABOUT DURING PUBLIC COMMENT... SO THAT'S WHAT I WILL HAVE TO DO:
BECAUSE ANYTHING ELSE I CARE ABOUT IS AT RISK OVER THIS GENERAL FUND/HOSTAGE SITUATION!
