  1. The corruption problems at LA City Hall continue through Garcetti, Nury Martinez, Gil Cedillo and others. Where is the city charter change to force these people out of their positions even though they want to stay in office forever?

  2. Why aren’t the Feds and the DA”s Office looking at Former District 11 Councilman Mike Bonin? He worked documented deals with Huizar, Enflander and Garcetti. He took huge money from Big Developers.He was the highest paid Councilmember ever..

  3. The Feds and the DA’s Office should be looking at former District 11 Councilman Mike Bonin. He did documented deals with Huizar, Englander and Garcetti. He was the highest paid councilmember ever. He received big money from Big Developers. He fled the scene claiming, “mental health issues”.
