Ad Hoc Meeting on L.A's (Alleged) NFL Stadium, DWP Ratepayer Legalease Committee Report & City Hall "Adjusts" Non-Union City Workers Pay & Pension

[Pictured: ZD tweets from top of the mountain of his undisclosed annex blogging studio.]

DAMN! City of Los Angeles caving in from the shadiness, when ZD takes a peek at the agendas (City Council and Committee Meetings from yesterday and today.) Here are links to PDF reports on TOP CITY ISSUES you have been reading about. Plus, links to any other L.A. City related story, ZD looked at. (Plus, RANTS!)

NOTE: L.A. City Council President Eric "Garshady" Garcetti wraps up his (final) term as President? New vote for next term during the Council meeting on Friday, July 1st. Word is Herb Wesson has the votes to become next Council president. (Eric is supposed to be stepping down to focus on his mayoral candidacy.) Zuma Dogg has been conspiratorial as to why he hasn't announced an exploratory committee to being fundraising, since the other city hall candidates (plus Austin Beutner) already have raised over $200,000, each. The conspiracy theory running through ZD's hopeful mind is he has to wait, cause his office has been questioned by the FBI over the Bonnie Brae affordable housing project in his district. And there IS a massive investigation into city hall, with phones being tapped and wires being worn for over two years, now. SO MAYBE HE DOESN'T WANT TO ANNOUNCE TILL HE'S SURE HE'S CLEARED (or not). OR, maybe he'll step down as council president, by design, and announce he's running for mayor. (Although he's got ZERO chance of winning.)
