Dear Wendy,

We can stop corporations and the wealthy from buying our democracy. This Monday marks the third annh.ersary of the disastrous Citizen's United decision. when the Supreme Court decided that corporations are people and that they and the wealthy can spend as much as they want on electtons That's JUSI wrong . All across the country, we the people are standing up to mark this unhappy anniversary by uniting in a massive ca ll to action to get big m oney out of p olitics.

Get big money out of po litics .

Will you send an em<1il to your member of Congress. calling for a constitutional arncnclrnen t to ovcrt11rn Citizens United? As we saw in this last election. big corporations and wealthy interests flooded the a1rwai.es with attack ads and spent millions of dollars to elect candidates who will look out for their interests, not ours . They can spend unlimited amounts of money, like when Sheldon Adelson. the casino mogul. spent $52.2 million to support his chosen candidates including Mitt Romney. Our democracy should give each of us a voice - and government should look out for a II of us. But 1t doesn't work that way when corporations and few super wealthy people can use unlimited campaign spending to rig the system in their fa\Qr and against the average \Qter https://mall.google.com/rna11fu/O/?ui= ...

All across the country . the grassroots movement for reform 1s getting bigger Last fall , Fair Share joined with other c1t1zen groups in Colorado to qualify and pass Amendment 65. which ins tructs Colorado's congressional delegation to support a const1tut1onal amendment There are now 11 states that have passed resolutions demanding an end to unlimited corporate money in politics. along with hundreds of cities. towns and counties . • This drumbeat of support is critical. A constitutional amendment needs a two-thirds majonty to pass Congress. That's why this anni'.Ersary is so important , as groups across the country unite in a strong 1.0ice calling for reform As we near the anniversary o f til e Ci ti zens Un i lccf c1ccis1on. we have a chan ce to clog Con9ress· inboxes anc1 i am up tllc1r pho n e l 1nc.s. and show tll cm tllat we the people want 1>19 money out o f politics.

Rent Acthtists Hit Greue l and G..ar.c.etti

L.A. Mayoral Rivals Dinged for Favoring Developers, Fueling Affordable-Housing Loss by Patrick Range McDonald -Thur~d,iy,January 17 , 2013

Larry Gross has fought for tenants' nghts 1n Los Angeles for near1y 4 0 years, earning a reputation as the go- to guy for v iews o n how lo protec t rent ers, whose incomes have dropped even as L.A . rents have increased sharply But when developers set up a mayoral candidates' forum to address L.A. 's affordable-housing troubles, Gross wasn't asked to weigh in.

• "I don't think any tenants' group was Invited to be a part of It," he says . Act1v1sts hoped the forum, sponsored by developers, ~ would provide a chance to examne the track records of candidates Wendy Greuel, Enc Garcetti and Jan ~ Perry. As Gross not es, between 2001 and 2007, when ( ~ ' all three were 1n positions to influence the outcome, ' ~/· nearly 14,000 rent-stabilized units were wiped out due · · to condo conversions and derroht1ons. Thousands of " ' ' - ~ ~ others vanished when developers' "covenants" 1'-V.... agreements to offer low rents - expired. Such forums "never t alk about tenants' rights," Gross says. 'They'll talk about cnrre and education and other things, but the majority of this city are renters. It shows a complete disrespect of renters." T he packed Los Angeles Mayoral Ensure Tenants' Righ ts. Pr event Displacem enl Preserve AffordableHousing Candidates Forum on Affordable Housing, on Jan. 11, took on the flavor of a children's school presentation, wit h Greue l, Garcettl and Pe rry giving canned answers to questions submtted to them 1n advance and each answer followed by applause.

WHERE DO nou STAND?

"I will end homelessness as mayor," Garcett1 declared - an achievement no U.S. urban mayor has even approached . Greuel promised to assure that "we don't have anyone homeless in the street."

Some housing activists are questioning the track records of the three politicia ns, who they say cozied up to landlords and developers. Greuel, Garcett1 and Perry have eagerly publicized "affordable housing" proJects they backed, even as many proJects fell short of replacing affordable units quietly lost to c1ty-subs1d1zed gentrification and luxury developments they embraced. https ://mail .google .com/ma1l/u/O/?U1 =

City of Los Angeles Mail - Fwd: CES Cal . Garcetti was the powerful president of the Los Angeles City Council for six years, until 2012 . ''The City Council over the past several years has completely ignored tenants," says Becky Dennison, co-director of the Los Angeles Community Action Network, an anti-poverty group, "and are pushing forward the landlords' agenda ." Greuel has been clty controller since 2009 and was on the City Council for seven years before that. In 2007, then- Controller Laura Chick issued a scathing report warning that the L.A. Housing Department was not tracking net losses of affordable housing units In any meaningful manner. Ch ick .路~ warned that City Hall was 1n the dark about the somet1rnesdevastat1ng outcomes of city practices. "Once again, for the ~J.os umpteenth tlrne," Chick wrote, "we find a city department without the essential infonnat ion systems and databases."

City of Angeles

Greue l, who has been controller for more than three years, has not conducted a follow-up to Chick's audit . Sorre act1v1sts are unlrroressed - and question how Greuel and Garcett1 would act as mayor (Perry 1s far behind Greuel and Garcett1 in rundra1s1ng, and experts say she faces an uphill battle March 5 to win a runoff spot for the May 21 election.) Barba ra Schultz, directing attorney of the housing unit at the Legal Aid Foundation of L.A., points to the fact that a 2009 housing study from Lhe L.A. Economic Roundtable was disregarded by the City Council. The Roundtable recomrended that landlords register their rental rates with the housing department as a way to combat Illegal rent hikes. It also suggested an end to L.A. 's annual, minimum 3 percent rent increase, 1n favor of rent hikes based solely on the Consu!TI2r Pnce Index, wh1c h often would be below 3 percent. Housing activists pushed hard for the idea, which fe ll on deaf ears. Garcett1 was City Council president.

''None of those recomrnendations have been implemented," Schultz says, "and they would really improve the lives of renters." According to raw crty data compiled by Gross' Coalition for Economic Survival , when Greuel represented City Council District 2 In the San Fernando Valley, her distnct lost 1,534 affordable housing units from 2003 to 2007. From 2005 through 2006, the height of L.A 's housing bubble - when Greuel lent her influential backing to a frenzy of developrrent - l, 137 rent-stab1hzed units were demolished or turned into condos In District 2. None of that carre up at Friday's "affordable housing" forum, organized by a steenng commttee of developers who are part of Housing for a Stronger Los Angeles. Yet Gross, who devoted much of his work to helping tenants in District 2, rerrennbers the nid- 2000s as a tirne of desperation. "Our phones lit up in terms of people trying to deal with condo conversions," he says 'There's nothing about 'preservation' of affordable housing," Schultz says of the forum. The questions tossed to Greuel, Garcetti and Perry focused on constructing new, "affordable" units; that involves giving public subsidies and/or zoning concessions to https://ma1l.google.com/mail/u/O(>u1 =~

developers but does not protect the city's existing affordable housmg stock. 'You could never build your way out of an affordable housing crisis," Schultz explains. Yet when tenants' nghts groups asked the forum's sponsors if Greuel, Garcettl and Perry could be asked about preserving low- cost rentals, the reply was no.

· •. ~ ·.. · _Q ~~ Robin Hughes of ~ • Housing for a _ • • J • :io Stronger Los ~ Angeles, denied that her steenng corrmttee tried to protect the three candidates from tough questions about their roles in affordable-housing preseNation. Hughes said her comnttee wanted co focus solely on how candidates would get more rroney to build housing (Hughes 1s exec utlve director at Adobe Corrmun1t1es, a nonprofit affordable housing developer. All members of the corrmittee that planned the forum are developers.) Schultz, Dennison and Gross say L.A. politicians have long been loath to touch tenants' rights Issues. The City Council has shown "no political will to rrove forward" on a comprehensive plan to preserve rent-stabilized units, Dennison says. Such preservation, which typically aims to discourage the ktnd of explosion in tear-downs, conversions and big rent hikes seen 1n Los Angeles, Is "a much rrore controversial issue at City Hall." Garcett1 tells L.A. Weekly that he could do little about tt as City Council president - it was up to Mayor Antonio Villara1gosa to create the political will. Garcett1 notes that he authored a 2008 rroratorium against tenant evictions during foreclosure, and helped get subs1d1es to build affordable housing units for gay seniors, fanilies and others. But Garcett1 has been, along with Perry and Greuel, the rrost avid City Council champion for "redevelopment," the urbanrenewal philosophy that between 2000 and 2010 helped drive thousands of working-class people out of Hollywood and East Hollywood 1n City Council District 13, which Garcett1 represents. As reported by the Weekly in ''Hollywood's Urban Cleansing," the area suffered a net population loss of 12,878 mostly Latino residents and saw skyrocketing rents while Garcetti acted as D1stnct 13's unofficial, powerful, land-use czar.

Rushmore Cervantes, the No. 2 executive at the LA. Housing Department, insists that his agency has gotten better at shanng cnt1cal data about what is unfolding. But in fact, the department still has no method, ftve years after Laura Ch ick's warning, to easily ascertain L.A. 's loss of rent-stab11tzed apartments. When the Weekly late last year asked the department's poltcy and planning director, Claudla Monterrosa, how many net units were lost or gained in Hollywood's rentstablliLed housing, she was unable to produce the data t hough given 17 days.

Greuel, asked if she fallowed up on Chick's 2007 audit showing City Hall's failure to track affordable rental losses, said via email that she's "looked at various aspects of how the city monitors its housing stock and whether 1t •s efficiently providing affordable housing for Los Angeles." https://ma1l.google.com/ma11/u/O/?u1= .

Paul Hatfield, an accountant and contributor to the blog C1ty\Va1chlA cr)fT'I, who has strong ly cntic1zed Greuel's ~~J~~'1~M~~L;:j tenure as controller, says Greuel 1s more concerned about promoting herself than about following up on Chick's warning. Greuel "want s to make a narre for herself," he charges, "rather than do the best thing for the City." As for Greuel's tirre representing Council District 2, when the area lost 1,534 rent-stab1ilzed unit s, Greuel responds, "I was a charrpion for affordable housing and changing city laws to prevent unjust ev1ct1ons.

Honorable Antonio R. Villaralgosa. Mayor Honorable Members of the Los Angeles City Council SUBJECT: PRB..tMINARY FINANCIAL REPORT FISCAL YEAR 2011-12

Today. I am submitting my Pre!imlnaJY Financial Report b the City of Los Angeles for the fiscal year 2011-12. which pr~ detailed inbmation regarding the fiscal year-end closing results for the Reserve Fund along with the status of the General Fund andthe city's bonded indebtedness. My report shows that the City still has a lengthy road to long-term fiscal recO\ety. Slmilar to prior years' Preliminary Financial Reports. this report includes recommended Mayor and Council actions specifically concerning the Resen.e Fund and prior-year encumbrances .

At the end of fiscal year 2011 -12 (June 30, 2012). the Reser.e Fund cash balance was$242 3 million and the General Fund receipts totaled $4.39 billion. This Reser.e Fund cash balaas a percentage of actual General Fund receipts, was equal

HEWS M E D I A GROUP

Qty of Los Angeles Mall - Fwd : Update... to 5.52 percent. HO'O'e\er, this does not reflect departmental adjustments that Impacted the to1al amount in the ResetW Fund.

After applying Reser.e Fund adjustments that wete ini1iated in the pri0< year and those included In the fiscal year 2012-13 adopted budge! , the Reser.e Fund cash balance decreased to $224.9 million (July 1, 2012). The largest contributing factor in the adjustment was due to re-appropriations of funds. which totaled $39.5 million. As a result of these re-appropriaUons. the adj us led Reserve Fund cash balance as a percentage of the fiscal year 2012-13 anticipated General Fund receipts of $4.55 billion, Is equal to 4.94 percent. Once these adjustments are taken into account, the adjusted Reser.e nd cash balance is $6.9 million more than originally anticipated in the 2012-13 a opted budget, but $2 6 million less than the 5 percent ($227.5 million) prese1i by the City's Resen.e Fund Policy. As I ha1,e repeatedly emphasized in recent ears , the City must continue efforts to maintain and grow the Resene Fund to at I ast 5 percent. I would like to highlight that g~ the City's current practices. the adjust Resen.e Fund cash balance could have been higher If, eit her, re-appropriations more unused prior-year encumbrances were disencumbered. As of Aug after urging all departments to disencumber any unused funds. General prior-year encumbrances still totaled $113.7 million. This practice needs to change. My Office continues to work with the CAO and labor represents hes to reV.ew pnor-year encumbrances and we are WO<king towards the develo ent of a prior-year encumbrance Policy to make more funds available to increase re'liefslons at year end.

In the interim, departments need to make eo..ery effort to expend funds in the most transparent manner and regularty re"1ew encumbrances for current year se. As a reminder, departments should also comply with my Office's past audit recommendation to ensure that fUnds not be encumbered without 'f.'id City obligations or work orders corresponding to a given app<opriation's bud fiscal year. Further, departments should adhere to a Council app<O\ed instruction in ast year's preliminary financial report for departments to disencumber unwarranted terns lo increase reversions wheneo..er possible. Soon the Council will be faced with finding revenue to a-.oid layoffs during thls fiscal year. In addition, the most recent Budget Outlook anticipates a budget p of $215.9 million in fiscal year 201~14. It should be noted that next year's budget gap already assumes new ongoing General Fund rewnues of approximately $37 milli n from the Special Parking Revenue Fund and Property Tax-CRA Increment monies Further. the budget gap is subject to change if unanUclpated revenue shortfalls or pot ntial new contingency expenditures occur. Steps should be taken immediately t rds addressing these p<oblems . including a full implementation of Performan e Based Budgeting which I put forth last year lo increase transparency and accou tabillty of departments for e~ry dollar spent .

In pre\lious reports , I have warned that the continued policy of reducing or eliminating ol.EJrtime cash payments by increasing banked hour limits would likely re ult in larger banked hour balances across fiscal years if not property managed. In Jul 2009, for example, the banked o..ertime hours for sworn personnel totaled an esti ated payout value of $48.0 million. As of the first pay penod of the current fiscal year. he banked o\eltime hours fo r sworn personnel totaled 2.2 million hours with an esti ated payout value of $103.1 million. Therefore City managers must minimize nked compensated absences by year-end, rather than deferring an ewn larger labilily to be paid out in future years.

Hi, Ms. Greuel,

On behalf of the Governrrent Affairs ConYTittee of the Woodland Hills-Tarzana Charrber of Corrrrerce, I would like to invite you to participate in a forum for candidates in the 2013 race for Mayor of the City of Los Angeles. The forum will be sponsored by the Woodland Hills-Tarzana Chamber of Com-rerce, the largest Charrber in the San Fernando Valley with over 700 business rrerrbers, with the involverrent of the Canoga Park-West Hills Charrber of Com-rerce, the Woodland Hills-Warner Center Neighborhood Council, the Reseda Neighborhood Council, the Tarzana Neighborhood Council, and the Canoga Park-West Hills Neighborhood Council. The forum will be held at the Westfield Prorrenade mall in the retail space fo~r1y occupied by Dick's Sporting Goods. The space can accommodate hundreds of people. You may rerrember that the Woodland Hills-Tarzana Charrber of Com-rerce held a 30th Congressional District forum there last January, which drew a standing-roomonly crowd and a substantial turnout of local television and print reporters. As a candidate in that race and as a participant in that forum, I saw first-hand that voters in the West San Fernando Valley are active, involved and interested in hearing from the cand idates in person. The format will be a modified town hall, in which questions submtted by Charrber rrerrbers and the general public will be posed to candidates by a moderator. We would like to hold this forum in the evening sorretirre between January 26 and February 10, and we would like to accommodate your schedule to the fullest extent possible. If you would let us know what dates are best for you, or conversely, what dates you are not available, we will make every effort to hold the forum on a day that you can be there. https://mail.google.com/ma11ju/O/'ui = . .

The \Oters apprm.ed a 30-year increase in sales taxes for that purpose in 2008, and now MTA wants more money just four years later'?! Naw, as my grandfather use to say , "that dog won't hunt. ~ This coalition is right.

No Measu re J: Tim e to Stop Ballot Exploitation LA Progressii.e (http-//www laprogressive com/no-measu re-J-for-la) By Anthony Samad October 19, 2012 For the past year, the Los Angeles black community has been trying to negotiate a suitable and acceptable plan to mitigate traffic and business d1srupt1on around the construction of the Crenshaw/LAX rail line that will be coming down Crenshaw 81\d. Like every other community that has been impacted (or will be impacted) by permanent transportation infrastructure, the Crenshaw community should be heard, listened to and cooperated with on something that will effect their ltves, the li\€s of their children and their children's children. Light rail infrastructure will be around for 100 years . Once it's done, it's done. It will be around longer than the politicians and experts that planned it, constructed 1t and cut the ribbon. Once that's done, it's the people's li\es that will be disrupted and disgusted o\er the impediments and incon\€niences caused by undesirable, and unwanted. transportation design. Crenshaw's elected officials are listening. Crenshaw's Mayor is not. He hasn't heard us, and he ain't hearing us. But I BET he'll hear this . His ballot irntiati\€ to pay for his darling "Subway to the sea" dream gets a NO from us. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa pitched the federal government with this lofty plan of building 30 years worth of transportation infrastructure. He floated a bond measure, Measure R. in 2008, that would raise approximately $35 billion dollars o\er 30 years with a half cent sales tax earmarked for transportation projects . The black community o\erwhelming supported Measure R, in hopes of getting its long awaited Crenshaw Rail line built , a line first proposed 26 years ago in 1986 Some analysts said the black community \Ole was the tipping point for Measure R in Southern California's highly anti-taxation en-.1ronment. Howe\er, when the ballot measure passed. all parts of the county came with dream projects and demands for the money grab. The reward lo the black community was to finish the contro\ersial Expo Line and put a bus line down Crenshaw. If it wasn't for the effort of Los Angeles County Super\1sor Mark Ridley-Thomas . demanding the rail line stay on the table, the black community would ha\€ seen essentially nothing for their \Ole to tax themsel\es. Instead, the reward has been a rail line. but a rail line with a design the community doesn't support , and a "take it or lea\€ 1t" attitude from the Mayor. A Mayor. we ha\€ to keep reminding (kicking) oursel\es , that our community put in office. A Mayor hell bent on trying to complete 12 transportation projects in ten years. He pitched President Obama to sign the America Fast Forward bill this past summer which would offer up $105 billion dollars in loans for stalled and unfunded turnkey transportation projects . Still , no lo\€ for the Crenshaw/LAX line. $545 million was set aside for the Leimert Park stop that Villaraigosa made conditional to the design if the money was found. Still no effort to take a highly d1srupti\€ rail line thru the middle of a commerce stari.ed Hyde Park business district - essentially assunng its demise. With this facing a disgusted community , Villaraigosa has the audacity to float another half cent tax bond to complete current projects - not including the Crenshaw/LAX proiect Let me get this straight - you want the black community to tax itself, until the year 2069, for transportation projects https://mail .google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=..

City of Los Angeles Mail - Fwd: Betty Pl.. that neither impact nor 1mpro-.e our community?

Well, that's straight-up JACKING. Robin Hood in re-.erse. Take from the poor and gi-.e to the rich. Who are the rich In Los Angeles? Say it with me now."The Westside." Like e'llery other community that has been impacted (or will be impacted) by permanent transportation infrastructure. the Crenshaw community should be heard, hstened to and cooperated with on something that will effect their li-.es. the lives of their children and their children's children. Villaraigosa's Measure J, which the community is now calling. "Measure Jackin' Us," essentially is a tax to help Villaraigosa fulfill "his dream" of a subway to the sea - which runs from downtown to Santa Monica. and runs underground when the community said so. So, again - it's all about him. The Southside and Eastside of Los Angeles will just ha-.e to pay without sufficient return on their ln-.estment. Why should these communities always be expected to negotiate away their dignity - or ha-.e some suit negotiate it away for them? The Space Shuttle journey down Crenshaw was pretty - but not pretty enough for our community to lose four hundred trees . Yeah, they'll replace them two to one. but what do we breath for 20 years in the meantime? What replaces the oxygen during the time it takes for trees to be planted and become full grown? Oh. nobody thought that through, huh? Other communit ies did. That's why the Shuttle went down Crenshaw 81\d. You can only put so much on one community before they ha-.e to draw a line in the sand. The Crenshaw Community did that with Villaraigosa months ago. He danced all o\.er it and smiled. Now he's trying to tax us for 65 years and still smlllng. Well , smile at this ... NO ON Measure J. Tell your friends . family , people you don't like. Vote Obama. Jackie Lacey and NO on Measure J. Shout from the mountain tops , and the street comers . Hold up signs, and ha-.e a candle ..;git. There's something for e-.erybody to do on this one. But it's time. Let's stop the jacking that's about to occur in South L.A. If MTA can't find money for a Leimert Park stop and a tunnel at 48th, we can't find a l.Qte on Measure J. s••t just got real. .. Vote No on Measure J.

Hi Wendy ,

I recently saw your article urge the extension of the film tax credits . I was hoping you might be able to take some time to talk to me in detail about this . I work for a -.;sual effects company called Zoic Studios as the head of our pipeline and advanced technology department in LA and Vancoui.er and hai.e a lot of insight. As the head of our pipeline I build tools to help manage our production, but I also build tools to manage timecards , actuals , financial, projections and R&D tax credits In many ways I understand the ramification of the tax credit incentii.es as it pertains to production and post production and ha\.€ built our databases and tools in ways to maximize their impact. As the controller of Los Angles these issues ha\.€ an incredible impact on our city, state and country . Much of our company and work is being moved outside of Los Angeles and our family is in a difficult position contemplating the future of our industry in California as well as the US I am hoping you can take the time to talk with me about these subject matters

Sincerely . Michael Romey

Dear Ms. Greuel,

I am writing to thank you for your support of extending the California film incenti-.e program: I as a filmworker and resident of the state feel this is \ery important. Myself and thousands li ke me are really being hurt but runaway film production. I know this must also hai.e a huge effect on Los Angeles and the entire state as well. I am howe-.er still i.ery concerned that the program is too little and maybe too fate. The fact that the program is capped at projects with no larger than a $75 Mil budget the program makes it worthless in regards to attracting the big budget films that really generate the big money. These are the films that hire a lot of wor1<ers for many months (up to a year at times) and spend millions buying supplies and all the other things needed to complete these projects. Big budget films are still lea"1ng the state and being made in places like Louisiana, North Carolina and Massachusetts where the incenti-.e encourage them . That said . . I would just like to say that more needs to be done to bring these projects back . Really a form of price matching incenti-.e would be desired ... we need to aggressi-.ely compete. I would hope that L.A. would lobby for such a program and perhaps e\en haw a c ity program? Also cons idenng wa1"1ng permit I ser"1ce fees and larger projects that bring big money to town. What worries me most is I feel we are getting close to a tipping point where the business my ne-.er come back . Why?? It was the California workers that created and were the best at making films. At first.. . California workers were brought along on many incenti-.e films because other states se-.erely lacked that talent to do the JOb We were in essence training them. Now .. -.ery few of us get to go , https://mail.google.com/ mail/u/O/'ui= ...

Los Angeles losing the core of its TV production to other states By Richard Verrier,Los Angeles Times (MCl) Published August 17th, 2012 2:35 pm LOS ANGELES - The five broadcast tele\1sion networks will be rolling out 23 new one-hour dramas for the upcoming season. That would normally be good business for Hollywood's hometown industry - with bookings for soundstages and plenty of work for the costumers . camera operators and caterers needed to put a show on the air But not this year. Just two of the 23 new fall and midseason shows will be shot in Los Angeles County , as cost-conscious producers seek tax-friendly production havens in New York, North Carolina , Georgia and other states. The exodus has been going on for years, especially rn feature film production . But tel e~sion dramas such as "CSI," "Criminal Minds" and "Desperate Housewives" have long been anchors of Los Angeles' entertainment economy , helping to offset the decade-long slide in mo~emaking . One 22episode-a-year network series has a budget of $60 million and generates 840 direct and indirect j obs, according to the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. That economic bang is beginning to fizzle. Fewer than 10 percent of new network dramas this season are based in Los Angeles, down from 50 percent in 2010 and nearly 80 percent in 2005. "The loss of hourlong dramas is very significant. " said Ke.,,;n Ktowden, director of the California Center at the Milken Institute. noting that a typical drama shoots for eight to nine months , compared with just six to eight weeks for a film. "This is the heart of tele'.1s ion production. If this continues , you're going to see a direct impact on the employment base of Los Angeles ." Though L.A. still hosts the bulk of new half-hour comedies and reality shows , dramas are more prized because they use bigger crews and have bigger budgets . That translates to more spending in the local economy .

Repercussions from the downturn are being fell across the local film and 1V industry. putting the squeeze on prop houses and other busmesses that rely on production and creating growing hardship for the grips. location managers and other crew members who are finding it harder to get work in the entertainment capital of the world. Da\1d Henke is one of them. For most of his career, the 52-year-old location manager rarely went more than a month without a job. The Sylmar resident earned more than $100,000 a year working on such 1V shows as "Nip/Tuck" and "Deadliest Warrior." But Henke hasn't worked in more than a year. squeakmg by on unemployment checks and what's left of his retirement sa\1ngs . "Ei.erything has gone out of town," he said. Like many in Hollywood. Henke has family members who are also m the business, and they' re hurting too. His wife, Carol, who runs a film location business , was forced to close her office after receipts dropped from $300,000 in 2010 to $40,000 last year. And Henke' s brother-in-law, Cliff Rogers , a longtime unit production supe™sor and producer, has been jobless for a year. Rogers, 60, who began his career working for the late 1V producer Aaron Spelling, moi.ed to Georgia last year to work on the drama "Necessary Roughness" but lost his job when new producers came in and hired a different crew. When he returned to Los Angeles, he found there was no work . "The bank foreclosed on my house in April , I declared bankruptcy a year ago, (and) I'm li"1ng in my mother-in-law's house," said Rogers, who has been joined by his two grown sons, one of them an assistant director who is also out of work. "Ei.ery time I call one of my friends , they say: 'Not right now, Cliff. We'll keep you in mind.'" Bill Myer lost his home too, and now shares an apartment in Van Nuys with six colleagues who are in similar straits The 52-year-old makeup artist used to earn $150.000 a year working on mo\1es like "Cast Away" and 1V series including "Baywatch." "I'm about ready to go hit the highway. stick out my thumb and moi.e to Louisiana just so I can go back to work," he said. "It's like Hollywood has run away from home " Myer and others hai.e gotten help from the Actors Fund, a nonprofit group that pro\1des assistance to "distressed entertainment industry workers . Last year, the fund awarded $1 million in emergency aid for such things as buying groceries and paying rent - about triple the amount in 2007. said Keith McNutt, director of the Western region for the fund "We're seeing a lot of people who just aren't making it anymore. " he said Although precise figures are not available, some of Hollywood's below-the-line unions say at least 30 percent of their members are unemployed. 'The impact has been drastic on our members ," said Ed Brown, business agent for Local 44 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, which represents prop makers , set decorators and special-effects workers. "The loss of one-hour dramas has caused a major spike in unemployment because they crew so many people. " IA TSE and other entertainment unions hai.e been lobbying lawmakers in Sacramento to extend California's film tax credit program, which is set to expire next year But the program has struggled to compete with more generous mcentii.es in other states . New York offers four times as much in https://mail.google.com/mail/u/O/'ui= ..

More than half a dozen new fall and midseason network dramas are expected to shoot in New York this season, including the CWs "The Carrie Diaries ," CBS' "Elementary" and ABC's "666 Park AIA:!nue." At least selA:!n new broadcast dramas will be shooting in Canada. including ABC's "Zero Hour," in Montreal. and "Hannibal" and "Beauty and the Beast." both in Toronto. which also hosts the new drama "The L.A. Complex," about a group of actors trying to make it.in Hollywood. Other new dramas are being filmed in North Carolina, Georgia, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Tennessee. To be sure, creatil.€ reasons also factor in the decision-making. It made sense to shoot "Dallas" in Texas because the story is based there. But tax credits offered by Texas were also important, said Michael Robin, an execut1\€ producer on the senes. who is also a producer on the new cable cnme drama "Longmire," which is set in Wyoming but filmed in New Mexico. partly to take advantage of tax credits. "The cost of producing these shows goes up elA:!ry year, but the bottom line doesn't," said Robin. who is also producing the new cable drama "Major Crimes" locally. "The tax credits help close the gap." "The reality is , as long as Sacramento continues to balk at hav;ng real incentilA:!s, we're going to continue to lose the most lucratil.€ forms of television and film production," said Paul Audley, president of Filml.A. Inc , the nonprofit group that handles permits for the city and county . 'We're losing tens of thousands of jobs to New York ." EIA:!n before the latest TV downturn, the local JObs climate was bleak , partly because of studio cutbacks caused by the recession but also because of the long-term effects of production flight A report by the Milken Institute estimated that California lost more than 36,000 film industry jobs and $2.4 billion in wages between 1997 and 2008, which it attributed mainly to the effects of so-called runaway production. Some local craftspeople are making contingency plans. Elion Olson, an assistant director on "The Defenders" and "Criminal Minds," has worked sporadically since Chnstmas. When he and his wife ran out of money to buy groceries , they molA:!d to Alabama temporarily to Iii.€ with her parents The 41-year-old North Hollywood resident recently returned to L.A. to work part time on an ABC show. But he isn't banking on a long-term career in the business. He recently began taking courses to become a scuba diving instructor.

Hi Wendy,

I just wanted to thank you for being acti-.e in this As you know it has been really hard with runaway productions I just got off the phone yesterday with a head execut1-.e at Legendary Pictures and 11 is crazy how so many film s are staying out of CA the only work if you are lucky in lhe industry is reality or some episodic Iv. I personally seen so many fnend relocate to Atlanta and other incenti-.e states where they are gi"1ng more bang for the buck . We need to make mcenli-.es better in the state or we will lose our shows in the state let alone the country I ha-.e been telling Janice Hahn that as well and can't wait to catch up with her on the 23rd this month. We still need to do a power ladies spa day when we all ha...e time which I don't see any time soon. but we will make time I am work ing on a TBS pilot right now then heading off on a BET project. I ha...e been really busy . My goal 1s to keep Hollywood ..HOLLYWOOD if I can do anything in my power or you need someone to talk for lhe industry I can help you get whom e-.er you need. I was talking to the EP of my current show and she was like you are nght Lon. It is funny how Arnold was our go-.enor and didn't really help the industry Our business is one of the largest exports not only for our state. but the country we need to make sure we do e\€rything we can to enhance the industry and create more work in our state. This has a huge effect on our economics . The more spend in our stale with film and tv the more spend and economic growth we will see I really appreciate your efforts. I would lo-.e to do lunch at some point not sure if you are available next week I will be wrapping my show at TBS maybe we can meet at the WB Commissary and iust chat plus catch up Otherwise, I will be off to Atlanta for a bit and Woodland Hills. If you need any help campaign wise in making a 'v\deo or dealing with new medra let me know I ha-.e the crew who can get it done and we can shoot it in LA LA 1s the only place m the world that has the best production houses and production crew. I would like to keep it that way !!!! https://mail.google.com/mail/u/O/?ul==

Go-..emor to support Assembly Bill 2026 and Senate Bill 1197 to extend the Cahfom1a Film Commission's requirement to allocate tax credits through and including the 2016-17 fiscal year. A recent study by the LAEDC concluded that dunng the first two years of the film tax credit program . the credit generated more than $3 8 billion in economic output, supports o-..er 20.000 1obs in Califom1a, and will return $200 million to state and local go-..emments .

"The production industry 1s an integral part of our local and state economy ." said Greuel. "I applaud Assemblymember Fuentes for his leadership in authoring and shepherding AB2026 through the legis lature. By extending these credits, productions can be planned further in adVc1nce, knowing that credits will be available for the entire run of a production • As acti-..e supporters of a robust entertainment industry in California, Greuel and

Da~s

ha-..e and will

continue to ad\.OCate for 1ools that the State can use to keep filming here 1n California. The implementation of the California Film and Tele"1s1on Tax Credit Program in the 2009 budget plan has led to a re"1val in film production in-..estment in California. Film LA , the permitting agency for Los Angeles , reports that in 2010, feature film production posted a 28 1 percent fourth quarter gain and a year-o-.er-year gain of 8 1 percent. "Tho

Greuel Finds More Than $2 Million Wasted by Department of Recreation and Parks on Shuttered Campgrounds Citizen Tip to Controller's Fraud, Waste and Abuse Hotline Prompts Investigation

LOS ANGELES - As the City struggles to find funds to prolAde safe and welcoming parks and recreation facilities. City Controller Wendy Greuel found that the Department of Recreation and Parks has spent more than $2 million In public dollars to operate three campgrounds which have been closed to the public for over ten years. These findings are a result of a waste, fraud and abuse invesl1gation. following a complaint receil.ed through the Controller's Fraud, Waste and Abuse hothne

"At a time when the City's budget situation has limited the ser\Aces that the Department of Recreation and Parks pro111des, I urge City leaders lo decide 1f maintaining these shuttered, unused campgrounds are a pnonty." said City Controller Greuel. "Without a plan In place. wasting more than S2 million on campgrounds that no resident can use 1s unacceptable •

The Controller's investigation re-..ealed that.

·While Camps Valcrest and Radford haw been closed to the public for 20 and 13 years. respectively. the City has paid $2 million for caretakers to h-..e at the camps The City has paid near1y $100.000 for water to be trucked up lo Camp Valcrest.

·The Wlldlands Conservancy offered to pay $616.000 to co\ef repairs at Camp Valcresl; however, the Department failed to meet the contingency demands, so two years later the Conservancy wtthdrew their offer.

The Department mamlains that it cannot open and operate the parks until all repairs needed are completed. Though there is a plan to reopen Camp Radford, there is currently no t1meline to do so due to lack of Identified funding

Greuel also found that the Department paid more than $217.000 for the purchase and installation of a mobile home at Decker Canyon Camp The Department never obtained the proper permits for installallon and realized after the purchase lhat the road to the camp was unable to accommodate the mobile home for installation. Instead of d1scontinu1ng monthly lease payments dunng the 3year term based on the failure to obtain permits. the Department had to store and ulhmately demolish the mobile home after 10 years because 11 had deteriorated so badly

"This is another example of a depar1ment that did not keep a close watch O\er each and every expenditure. The City cannot afford lo continue on with a 'business as usual' attitude and must ask the difficult questions to allocate the City's resources most effecllvely," said Greuel

Controller Greuel has conducted more than 60 audits and uncovered more than $130 million thal lhe City has lost to wasteful spending, fraudulent aclllAty . and abuse of city resources o..er the last three years

City of Los Angeles Mail - Fwd: CITY C. .. For your information, some facts . This customer ser.1ce feature (the so-called "gold card desk") has been in place for at least 15 years. The Controller should know this because as a Councilmember she \Qted "yes" to award a fi\.e-year contract to LAOOTs current \.endor, Affiliated Computer Ser.1ces , State and Local Solutions (ACS) (Council File 03-2245, February 24, 2006). This included the Gold Card Desk ser.1ce. In fact. while ser.1ng on the Council, her office used this ser.1ce to assist constituents. For example, in an e-mail from her then-Council office staff dated June 26, 2006, then-Councilmember Greuel requested assistance from the Gold Card Desk for a constituent who was ha"1ng difficulty resoll.1ng a citation issues with LAOOT. As recently as No\.ember 6. 2006 when then-Counc1lmember Greuel ser-.ed on the City Council. the department pro1.1ded her with a report that specifically identifies the "Gold Card Sel"v1ces" ("Parking Citation Collection Task Force Progress Report", Appendix B, p.8; Council File 03-2245-51 ). It specifically describes the "Gold Card Sennces" as follows : "'Manage the outreach program for high-le1.el city officials, high profile complaints, and public record requests" As chair of the City Council's Transportation Committee then-Councilmember Greuel was briefed on all aspects of the department's operations and was fully aware of the Gold Card desk. For example, in 2007 and 2008. LADOT staff briefed the Mayor's and City Council field offices about the parking citation process as well as the adjudication process so that they pro"1ded better ser.1ce to our constituents . As another example, on March 26, 2007, then-Councilmember Greuel was adl.1sed in writing by LADOT that Council offices would be recel"1ng briefings about parking citation Issues. On March 25. 2008, LAOOT briefed then-Councilmember Greuel's field staff about parking c1tat1on issues in her field office In the PowerPoint presentation prol.1ded to your Council office staff, the Gold Card Desk was specifically identified and discussed. Please let me know If you ha1.e further questions Sarah

HI Wendy . After a good bit of soul searching I ha-.e decided to join Dick Riordan in endorsing Austin Beutner for mayor. I wanted you to know this before it is announced tomorrow. Austin and I ha-.e worked together O\.er the past 15 months on se-.eral projects . I think he is extremely qualified for the job - though his winning the race is a long shot at this Juncture. You and I ha-.e been friends for many years and I greatly admire you. I think you ha-.e an excellent shot at being Mayor - and certainly getting into the run off two years from now. I will send you money and tell people who ask me about you how much I think you're great leader. But ha\ing worked so much with Austin o-.er the past year is the main reason I fell I must support him at this time. Best wishes . Da-.e

City Councihvoman Jan Perry has filed paperwork to begin her run for muyo r, joining City Controller Wendy Greuel, San Fernando Valley businessman YJ Draiman and talk-radio host Kevin James in the process of raising money fo r a 2013 bid to succeed Mayor Antonio Villarnigosa. Perry, who represents downtown and part of South Los Angeles, began her career at City Hall in 1990, working for former City Council members Michael Woo and Rita Walters. She was hired by Mayor Richard Riordan to coordinate the city's outreach for the 2000 census before she was elected to the council in 2001. "I have the experience, the focus and the ability lo take the city in the direc tion that it needs to go and realize its full potential ," said Perry, adding that s he would focus on impro,·ing Los Angeles' transportatio n system and bringing in new revenue to the city, '"'hich is facing a $404 -million budget gap. "We need to hit that point v.··here we can continue to provide basic sef\·iccs in a realistic manner and have a budget that is balanced so that we can build a city for the future," she said.

During her three terms on the City Council, Perry has presided O\'er a major expansion of development in the do\.\ntown areas of her district, but she said s he counts some of the projects in South Los Angeles - including two new grocery s tores, a wetla nds parks at Sla uson and Compton avenues, and a neighborhood city hall with a rooftop garden at 43rd Street and Central Avenue -- as the most important projects built during her tenure. "These projects downtown are tremendous and wonderful, and they employ a lot of people," said Perry, who is 55. But she said the reaction of constituents in South Los Angeles to projects such as the two wetlands parks in her dis trict has been the most rewarding: "They never imagined this '"'as possible right https://ma1l .google.com/mail/u/O/?w== ..

DOW NTOW N LOS ANGELES - It looked like a mayo r 's race stump speech: Austin Beutner, in a sharp gray suit and striped tie, stood at a podium this afternoon In front of dozens of board members from the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. The crowd, many of them Influential titans of local industry, were exactly the people capable of w r iting $1,000 campaign donation checks to a pro-business candidate.

City of Los Angeles Mail - Fwd: Don't C. . Despite all this, it wasn't a mayoral stump speech. At least not officially. At least not yet.

So is Beutner running for mayor? "I'm seriously considering It," he told the Chamber crowd, before uttering another line often heard from mayoral candidates. "We are at a crossroads in Los Angeles." Beutner said he expects to make a decision on entering the race within a month or so. When asked a bout his criticism of the council ma post-meeting address with reporters, he again brought up the looming deficit of the coming fiscal year, saying there needs to be solutions that get to the full $400 million. One option that should not be on the table, he said, is bankruptcy . "I don't think that's a solution," he sa id, referencing experience on the topic from Evercore's bankruptcy consulting un it. He noted that it's not a pretty picture. "It's not an overdraft of your checking account," he added, citing the harmful repercussions It would have on efforts to recruit business to Los Angeles. "The city would never be the same." Contact Jon Regardfe at regard1c Lci'down t ownnews .com.

Using some of his harshest words yet 1 a lop aide to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa accused the City Council oflacking a strategy for eliminating a $4 04-million shortfall.

told an audience at the Los Angeles Arca Chamber of Commerce that private businesses would not allow themselves to have such a large shortfall and no solution so soon before a decision is needed. 2013,

"We've just reelected half the City Council, and I've not heard one of them propose a solution to a S4 oo million problem that's 60 days away," he said.

Voters on Tuesday reelected council members Paul Krckorian, Tom LaBonge, Tony Cardenas, Herb Wesson and Jose Huizar. Ballots remained lo be counted in the race im·oh·ing Councilman Bernard C. Parks, who earned just slightly more than 50% on election night, according to unofficial results.

[Updated a t 3:45 p.m .: Parks, who heads the council's Budget and Finance Committee, disagreed ,,;th Beutner's assessment, saying he talked during much of his reelection campaign about the need to reduce the size of the city workforce. The council already took 4 ,ooo positions out of the general fund budget - which pays for basic services - by adopting layoffs, transfers and an early retirement program, he said.

The council also sought to rein in ret:U-ement costs by putting on Tuesday's ballot a measure to trim pensions of newly hired police officers and firefighters. Beutner should have done the same during his eight months running the Department of Water and Power, Parks said. "We were hopcful as interim general manager of \\later and Power that he would have taken a role in cutting down the substantial ... [D\<\1 PJ pensions, but that didn't occur," he added. ]

If he runs for mayor, Beutncr could face two council membcrs--Jan Perry and Eric Garcetti - as well as a former council member, City Controller Wendy Greuel.

Bcutner, a former in\'cStment banker whom Villaraigosa appointed to help attract businesses to the city, has repeatedly promised to make a decision on his candidacy by the end of the month. But his comments, both in his speech and in questions afterward, already sounded like well-honed campaign rhetoric.

The Pacific Palisades resident repeatedly described Los Angeles as being at a crossroads, "'~th i3% unemployment ancl only half of its high school students graduating-a statistic he described as a "damning indictment" of tl1e school system. Bcutner suggested that the council shoulc.I hm·e gotten out of the business of operating city parking garagcs--something he snid the prin1lc sector could do better. The council rejected such a move last month.

And he waded into the debate over dramatically rising retirement costs, saying · • - - - -• - - - - 1--a1 •• 1n1; ... _

that the city should make good on its co mmitments to its ex isting \vorkfo rce. "We made promises. People arc owed their pensions," he suicl.

Beutner's most pointed comments focused on the budget gap, which must be decided in the next three months. Although Villaraigosa v.i ll propose his budget in April, a "'~de- ranging plan fo r making cuts is ex pected from City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana befo re then.
