When last seen, our esteem Mayor was speeding away from the manic homeless activists who upstage his photo-op
at Gladys Park in Skid Row.
Today Mayor Villaraigosa stepped off Keith Brackpool's, errr city plane to spend the day in "Cow Town", as described by Laker's coach Phil Jackson.
He will spend the day meeting with the likes of new Assembly Speaker Karen Bass and new Senate Leader Darrell Steinberg. Maybe he will wander by the "Doghouse" that South Gate Assemblyman Hector De La Torre has been relegated to for having the audacity to expouse something called "ETHICS", refering to his refusal to back Nunez's "GOLDEN HANDSHAKES"
for departing staffers.
But one dosen't journey to the "financial busom" of California Politics without coming back with something to show for it.
That comes tonight with a fund raiser for his re election campaign. The likes of Nunez will be in attendence so count on ample supplies of fine wine and maybe some after hours "chulitas".
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is in Sacramento today, where he will gather campaign funds for his reelection effort in 2009.
His evening fundraiser is at Ella Dining Room & Bar in downtown Sacramento, with an influential list of hosts, including Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez, lobbyists like Soyla Fernandez and Darius Anderson, members of the Tsakopoulos clan and Bob White, the former chief of staff to Gov. Pete Wilson.
The $1,000 per person event begins at 6:30 p.m.
