Antonio Villaraigosa Pledges To Involve Neighborhood Councils In New Planning Director Search!

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-plan10jun10,1,7912530.story?coll=la-headlines-california

Today's LA Times reports that Mayor-elect Antonio Villaraigosa has agreed to honor Mayor Hahn's pledge for us to be involved in the selection of the new planning director for the City of Los Angeles. Mayor Hahn had proposed that each NC appoint a member to a city wide body and then that body would select seven reps - one from each planning district. Those seven would then question the final three applicants for the job.

Hopefully, the NC's will shortly be able to have a meeting with the Mayor-elect and/or top staff members to discuss the details of our involvement in the process.

But only because I got up early. It's good to get the word out, as it's something to hold him to. And as the LA NC Congress is trying to assemble again tomorrow, it's just the type of issue that could justify their purpose.
