  1. So, once again Eric Garcetti is absent from the Council meeting — what seems to be a habit with him — and because of his UNEXCUSED absent (they others had been excused in advance), the council meeting had to be canceled for lack of a quorum — and all the people who had gone for their items had to be told to come back again anther day!

    As usual, Garcetti sees anything else more important than the main duty he is being paid $178,000 a year for, plus incredible perks: to attend and participate in the Council meetings where decisions are made.

    This time, Garcetti decided he could blow off his high-paid council duties — because he preferred to go yack at a meeting of the Urban Land Institute. Clearly, he felt their meeting was more important than the council meeting and the city’s business!

    This time Garcetti’s absence forced the cancellation of the entire council meeting. But he is very often absent, always has anything and everything else more important to do, any place and everywhere else to go — and not generally for any important city business, but rather for promoting himself.
