Recently released from City Hall is a ten (or nine, depending on the format) page document entitled:
A Fresh Start - The Villaraigosa Administration - Preliminary/Executive Summary May 31, 2005.
In it the new mayor states his overall philosphy about Los Angeles. He opines on schools, jobs, police, city commissions, traffic, ethics, fire, public safety, civil rights, terrorist attacks, ambulances, business, taxes, and many other subjects.
But there are two words that do not even appear in this statement about his Fresh Start - Neighborhood Councils.
This was definitely not what LA Cowboy was expecting as a one year anniversary gift from the new adminstration.
Maybe all the NC's should marshall our meager resources and buy our new Mayor a copy of the old city charter.
