I AM DISENFRANCHISED WITH THE ENTIRE NC SYSTEM!
I took time out of my busy day (and remember, my time is money) to attend the Boyle Hts NC meeting, this evening -- after I was done filming a new public access show at Time Warner for East LA.
It was pretty exciting, because I got to meet a lot of people, who knew me from the TV 35 appearances.
What was most exciting was to not only see the 30, or so people who showed up; but they were swearing in some new members, so that was cool, cause NCs need new members, since they are trying to do more outreach and generate more participation.
They had someone give a long presentation about some stupid magic train that is gonna get you to San Francisco or San Diego, really fast. It'll cost billions, and the guy admitted "emenent domain" would have to be a part of the project -- and I wondered how many people in the room have trips to San Fran and San Diego as a priority? Hopefully, the people will never vote to pay for it. (It has to be put to a vote in '08.)
But it was time for the swearing in of the new members. So they took a roll call...
OOPS...NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE FOR A QUORUM!
OOPS...can't progress any agenda items. Sorry people who showed up to get sworn in. Come back next month...we'll try it again.
They let us have public comment anyway, even though there was no need to, since it wasn't an official meeting.
So, I was at least able to notify everyone that if they wanted to complain that their CM's Planning Deputy ALSO sits on the Eagle Rock NC board, they can complain
to the 912 Review Commission to investigate -- BUT she sits on that, too. [BIG LAUGHS IN THE ROOM ON THAT! STAND UP COMEDIANS, EAT YOUR HEART OUT.]
SO I THINK IT'S TIME TO PULL THE PLUG ON THIS SHAM OF A RACKET THE CITY IS RUNNING.
(I found out so much sh*t today about NC, I wish I was just worried about it being in-effective again.
MAN, LOTS OF AGENDAS WERE REVEALED TODAY. WHAT OTHER COUNCIL MEMBERS HAVE STAFFERS ARE ON REVIEW COMMISSION?
REMEMBER THAT DUMB ASS LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTER "PROP R" NOISE? [ZD knew an NC member, who was acting as though he were AGAINST it (along with his fraudulently elected associate). Meanwhile, I just figured but they were really 'in cahoots' withLeague. [ZD calls it a "controlled burn", so they can control the opposition.]
Heard today, there are 2 sets of by laws??? [Can I see a copy of the bylaw?]
Different NCs have different standards. Some require you to be registered. Some let
you vote if you just hopped off the plane, or drove over theCanadian border as an illegal, undocumented immigrant.
And,oh no...when you check into financial issues and see the relationships and who is contributing to the City, it's enough to make you hope the City claims your house under the new CRA eminent domain law and move out of Cahootsville, USA.
Anyway, thanks to Time Warner/Boyle Heights producers for inviting ZD to be special guest for the public access show -- coming to all 15 districts and youtube. (It was on the realest, dough.)
And on behalf of the City of Los Angeles and DONE -- Zuma Dogg apologizes to everyone who showed up, not only to attend the meeting, but to be sworn in; only to cancel the meeting for lack of quorum.
DON'T BE DISENFRANCHISED. JUST COME BACK IN 30 DAYS, AND MAYBE THE MEETING WON'T BE CANCELLED AGAIN.
And Councilmembers...maybe you can send some staffers out to these NC meetings to help meet the quorum. [SEE STORY BELOW HOW COUNCILMEMBER HAS STAFFER ON NC BOARD -- AND THE 912 REVIEW COMMISSION...WHAT A JOKE!]
