Event downtown Sunday, March 18, 2007. It could be called: ‘Anti Thug Device’ –or ‘Carpetbaggers Keep Out’ –or: ‘Keep Those Stinking Greedy Paws Off My Community & City Council Rep.’ Actual name: “Saving Los Angeles” –event is Free.
People sitting in City Council, collecting $150 thousand a year PLUS “expenses” -car -gas, etc., etc., don’t seem to mind –giving permission for the same coffee –ground-up cow joint –giant hardware store –ugly-motel apartment “architecture” –in nearly every LA community. More income for them –less community, individual/family-owned business, history, presevation for us.
Bureaucrats laughed –when people begged them not to destroy Hollywood Hills. They kept on laughing –as Valentino’s estate and dozens more were bulldozed –to put a freeway straight through the hills instead of going around, circa 1950s. –You thought nobody cared? (Long-time residents, homeowners & ex Beats I’ve met at antique auctions have told me stories of protests, marches, meetings they invaded.)
You could only watch –while out-of-towner Roy Romer and his side-kicks Marlene Cantor and Jose Huizar trashed the Art Deco splendor of major landmark Ambassador Hotel… powerless to stop those people and their hidden agenda and their stinking politics. Gosh, they “won” –the Ambassador Hotel turned into rubble –Oops, atop toxic waste.
Now: bureaucrats and their pencils and their bulldozers are getting ready to erase important parts of West Los Angeles –houses, schools, churches, community –for another freeway project. G-D forbid those people should grow a brain: ADD second deck to EXISTING freeway –go UP –instead of destroying more.
Fed up with –“developers” –out-of-town and home-grown thugs, who want to turn your community into Anywhere USA –for cash in their pockets, on special votes from “your” City Council rep? This is the Conference for you.
