Paranoia strikes deep at ASNC

ASNC and Hermon – Here we go again?

At the final ASNC candidate forum held last night a question was put forth by the moderator Terrence Gomes. I do not remember the question word-for -word but the bottom line was:

“What do you think about Hermon and its decision to break away from the ASNC and start its own Neighborhood Council”

Two positions were taken:

The B2B Slate candidates all concurred that if it is what Hermon wanted then that is what Hermon should do.

All of the PRESERVE ASNC candidates were adamant in their opposition to Hermon succeeding from the ASNC.

The facts are (and ALL candidates present agreed) that:

  • Hermon is part of the ASNC
  • Hermon is an active empowered community
  • Hermon is getting people involved and finding out what they want


The absurdity of it all is, to stop tiny little Hermon, (a neighborhood soooooo… small to be it's own Neighborhood Council) the PRESERVE ASNC slate is now calling out reinforcements from all over Northeast L.A.

"Paranoia strikes deep Into your life it will creep It starts when you're always afraid You step out of line, the man come and take you away.

We better stop, hey, what's that sound? Everybody look what's going down"

Power to the people.

It’s time to get Back-2-Business

Since 2003, L.A. City has provided nearly ONE HALF MILLION DOLLARS in taxpayer funds for use by the ASNC -- just so that certified advisory board would communicate with YOU and get your input on how City services should be provided ... improved, redirected, etc. If an expensive, slick flyer paid for with your TAX dollars just arrived in YESTERDAY's mail (one day before the election & containing only ONE line about voting) and it's about the ONLY TIME you've heard directly from the ASNC in years -- then you may agree that a major change is needed. You can help make that change, in just 5-10 minutes, by VOTING at Ramona Hall, 4580 N. Figueroa St., L.A. 90065 - TODAY, Sat.. If you live, work, own property or have some other "stake" in one of the 5 communites, you're probably one of their tens of thousands of disregarded stakeholders. Please VOTE -- 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for as many of the TWELVE (12) BACK-2-Business candidates listed here as appear on your community's ballot, TODAY. but especially for: LYTTLE, BOWMAN, FELICIANO, MOSELEY, TORRES and JARAMILLO. VOTES for these will unseat entrenched officers who held secret meetings and repeatedly ignored stakeholder input on funding and representation issues. http://www.facebook.com/b2b4asnc
