The winner for best perk is two seats at the Oscars

Padilla surrendered the post to concentrate on his bid for the state Senate. He is challenging Assemblywoman Cindy Montanez, D-San Fernando, for the seat.

The truth behind the success of City Councilman Alex Padilla‘s bid nearly five years ago to become council president finally came out on Tuesday – it was a pair of tickets to the Acadamy Awards show given to a key ally on the council. “Alex called me up and said he had two tickets he couldn’t use and he knew I wanted to go, so he gave them to me,” Councilman Dennis Zine said during an hourlong council tribute to Padilla. Zine, who insisted he would have voted for Padilla in any case, said the gesture locked in his vote for the presidency. Padilla, who was elected council president when he was 28 – the youngest person ever to hold the post – was honored for leading the panel during troublesome times that included budget crises, San Fernando Valley secession and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. last_img read more

New Rosemead official sets goals

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! A new city manager with a track record of bringing economic development to his cities has taken the helm in Rosemead. Andy Lazzaretto, 63, comes to the $150,000-a-year job after serving as city manager in Walnut, Montebello, Alhambra, Stanton and Burbank and doing stints as interim city manager in Pomona and La Habra. Lazzaretto, who started Wednesday after unanimous City Council approval, has run the Burbank-based municipal consulting firm A.C. Lazzaretto and Associates since 1985. “I would like to help revitalize the community,” Lazzaretto said. “I hear that from the council.” Lazzaretto started his career in Walnut, where he made about $12,000 a year as city manager in the 1970s. He is largely credited with starting downtown redevelopment in Alhambra during his tenure as city manager there from 1980 to 1983. At that time, Lazzaretto helped cobble together a $40 million redevelopment project on Alhambra’s Main Street and spearheaded a major project in the city’s business district. The forced relocation of several businesses to make way for the projects led to his resignation under fire from Alhambra City Hall. But when it came time to break ground on the projects in 1983, Lazzaretto was invited to come back and was praised by city officials. Lazzaretto faces several challenges in Rosemead. One is a bitterly divided council. The frequent 3-2 split on the five-member council stems from disagreement over a Wal-Mart Supercenter under construction in the city. By the time Lazzaretto’s predecessor, Bill Crowe, left the job he was no longer on speaking terms with councilmen John Tran and John Nu ez, who opposed the Wal-Mart project. Lazzaretto said he would avoid such situations. “No matter how badly divided it is, I still work for five people,” he said. Nu ez said Lazzaretto can help foster a better working relationship between council members, and the unanimous vote for Lazzaretto is a start. “We can all agree on this one person,” Nu ez said. In particular, Nu ez said he likes Lazzaretto’s proven track record in economic development. Mayor Jay Imperial could not be reached for comment. Lazzaretto will become re-acquainted with a colleague from days past as residents continue to battle the city over the Wal-Mart Supercenter under construction on 24 acres at Walnut Grove Avenue and Rush Street. Larry Bevington, a former city manger for El Monte and Sierra Madre during the 1980s, is now a Rosemead resident and leader of Wal-Mart opposition group Save Our Community. “From what I remember of \, he was quite knowledgable and easy to work with,” Bevington said. “I feel he’s a good guy.” Bevington added the city could expect to see its economic growth jump-started by Lazzaretto. jason.kosareff@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717last_img read more

2 Dems challenge Sanchez

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! For the past two years, Rep. Linda Sanchez has had to fend off two well-financed campaigns from Republican Tim Escobar. This year, Sanchez, D-Lakewood, will have opposition from her own Democratic party, including one candidate who ran for the seat four years ago when there was no incumbent. Kenneth Graham, 52, of Lynwood, a constitutional law professor at Cal State Long Beach and USC, placed fifth out of six candidates in the 2002 primary election that Sanchez won. Frank Amador, 46, of Los Angeles is an attorney who can’t vote for himself because he doesn’t live in the district. Candidates only have to live in the state in order to run for Congress. Bill Wachob, campaign consultant for Sanchez, who was unavailable for comment on Friday because she was traveling, said she’s not worried about her opposition. “It’s anybody’s opportunity to run,” Wachob said. “She really looks forward to putting her record out there and talking to voters about what she’s done in the district.” The two challengers come at Sanchez from the left and right. Citing his experience of 21 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, Graham said he would be a better voice to speak out against the Bush administration’s foreign policy. “It’s come time to end” the Iraq war, Graham said. “When I’m elected, I will be a force of reckoning, a voice that advocates the interests of military against the war. She hasn’t done anything.” He also criticizes Congress and Sanchez for not doing enough to protect Social Security and health care and for not doing enough in terms of natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina. Wachob said that Sanchez has done as much as she can to oppose the Bush administration. “She has been a very outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s handling of Medicare, Social Security and the war on Iraq,” he said. “She was ranked by National Journal as one of the five most liberal members in all of Congress.” Amador disagrees with both Graham and Sanchez on issues like the Iraq War and Social Security and said he also has more experience in life. “We’re in a situation we have to see through. We can’t just get up and go,” Amador said of Iraq. “We need to be in until the country is stabilized.” He also said that privatization of Social Security is something that needs to be considered. Wachob said Sanchez won’t take Amador seriously because he doesn’t live in the district. “Until he does that, he doesn’t know what the people of this district need or want,” Wachob said. Amador said he plans to move into the district, but the fact that he does not live there now is not a big deal. “Why wouldn’t I be able to represent the district because I don’t live there?” he asked. “In Congress you make the laws for the entire nation.” mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562)698-0955, Ext. 3022last_img read more
