Open Thread for Wednesday

Good and bad day for the Mayor Tuesday.

First off, the City Council extended the term of the Mayor's interim General Manager of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment - Lisa Sarno - despite concerns from Neighborhood Council leaders.

Janice Hahn was one Council Member to express some concerns. "People are quitting neighborhood councils. They've decided they're burned out and there are too many rules and regulations," Councilwoman Janice Hahn said. "I hope I don't hear the same complaints and concerns that have been plaguing the committee about the turn the department is taking."

In the meantime, LA Voice stakes out a position that the Mayor's Asian junket is a good thing after all.

On the downside for the Mayor, Congresswoman Diane Watson - the first African American woman elected to the school board in 1975 - is part of a group who has filed suit to overturn the Mayor's legislation to take over the LA school district.
