Comments Not Mailed In Yet? Time to Email

If you haven't finished your written comments for the Hearing Officer at the upcoming Public Hearing on June 26, you can still Email them to:

Mr. Olivo has been working with the Ponte Vista development issues for years now, at the Los Angeles City Department of Planning and he attended almost, if not all of the Community Advisory Committee meetings held on the manner and established by Councilwoman Janice Hahn and Bob Bisno.

I haven't completed my second set of comments, so I need to get them Emailed soon.

If you are planning on attending the Public Hearing at the John Olguin Auditorium of the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, please bring along some comfortable lawn or folding chairs.

There will probably be a speaker system set up outside the Auditorium to provide the hearing to folks who won't be able to find seats inside the Auditorium.

You may also wish to include some cold drinks. I hope the crowd remains cordial to each other. There will be lots and lots of people on all sides of the Ponte Vista issue attending the Hearing.

For you Ponte Vista supporters, be sure you don't miss out on the free meal being served at the Bath House, beginning at 3:30, so I have been informed.

Bob is 'paying' you for your support, so you shouldn't miss receiving your 'pay'.

Oh, by the way, if anyone sees a fellow that is larger than me (as if that is possible) with a balding head and probably wearing a tie and jacket and close to Bob or Bob's associates, that may very well be Mr. Steve Afriat, the biggest lobbyist in the City of Los Angeles.

Mr. Afriat has been associates with Bob's 'weapon of mass development' plans for some time now.

Of course you may also be able to spot Rudy Svornich, another lobbyist who has worked for Bob.

Rudy is a former City Councilman for the 15th District and he has found apparently, that it is more profitable to take from the community than serve it.

If you get the chance and you recognize Ms. Elise Swanson, the Vice President in charge of the Ponte Vista Outreach Team, please say "Hi" from Sven Ludvquist O'Brien and wish her well.

You may also see members of the Papadakis family attending the Hearing. Please smile at them, too.

You will probably see individuals who you will not recognize attending and supporting Bob, at the Hearing. Please ask them if they enjoyed their dinner at the Bath House and wish them a safe drive back to there homes which for the most part, will NOT be in San Pedro.

Look for some Red Buttons. If you are of a mind to want one, there should be one available for you to wear and demonstrate your opposition to Bob's current plans.

The newest button has a red background and the entire text on the button is "R1" in white, with a black shadow.

If you know who I am, I should have some available and there will be other wonderful, thoughtful, intelligent, caring, concerned, and valuable persons distributing buttons, too.

If you don't know who I am, I will probably be wearing my most favorite button.

My favorite button comes from Bob Bisno's use of the term "ranting elitist" which he described as persons who do not wish to have more residents in the area of northwest San Pedro and eastern Palos Verdes at his Ponte Vista at San Pedro.

Bob used the term in a "Guest Column" he wrote in the Daily Breeze.

I created a number of different versions of the "ranting elitist" button. The vast majority of the buttons were depicting the six different ranks for generals.

I happen to be one of the three "Major Ranting Elitist" that there are. The other two individuals who have earned the rank of Major Ranting Elitist are not able to wear their buttons in public for reasons I cannot get into.

So let's all have as much fun as we can this coming Thursday. I hope the Hearing is peaceful and provides the Hearing Officer with lots, and lots, and lots, and lots, of testimony to mull over, which will take a long, long, long, long time to consider.

Let's be honest, I want to slow the whole process down so much that a snail can cross Western Avenue without getting smashed, 1000 times before the Planning Department comes out with what it thinks Bob can successfully build on the 61.53 acre site.

Have a great and much cooler week!
