mikeantonovich2014[Supv. Antonovich] – In his first speech as Mayor of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Mayor Michael D. Antonovich promised to work closely with the new board colleagues, the sheriff and county departments to build upon past achievements while  improving and enhancing foster care, public safety, municipal services, streamlining government, enhancing interdepartmental communication and establishing greater accountability.

“While 2015 presents numerous challenges it also provides many opportunities to build upon past successes and chart new trails,” said Mayor Antonovich.

The Board of Supervisors serves as the “Mayor and City Council” for the 134 unincorporated communities in Los Angeles County with more than 1.5 million residents.

  • Complete the implementation of the remaining recommendations of the Citizens Commission on Jail Violence and improve jail conditions as a whole.
  • Continue successful law enforcement programs such as DISARM.
  • Increase patrols in unincorporated areas.

Governance and Efficiency

 

  • Improve governance by enhancing our partnerships with the quality and productivity commission and the economy and efficiency commission to achieve future county savings and further streamline our government.
  • Reform the governance structure to break down silos, enhance interdepartmental communication and establish greater accountability.

Economic Growth

    Why doesn’t he mention the Chiquita Canyon Landfill expansion currently “in the works”? He was so adamant that it would close with no more extensions or expansions back in 1997?

  2. Ace Carter says:

    Antonovich KNOWS that the LA County funded “Therapy..” for the poor little foster kids who miss their Mommies…

    Is all about DRUGGING them until they no longer miss their Mommies…

    The entire family is PUNISHED…

    Grand parents, aunts and uncles and cousins…

    Antonovich’s foster kids are being turned into future criminals…

    Later on when they leave The System and stop taking the powerful, adult, experimental, psychotropic DRUGS…

    How many will become serial killers..?

    PUNISHING bad Mommies by taking their kids away IS THE ABSOLUTE MOST EXTREME FORM OF CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT…

    Usually this sort of Kidnapping is done by organized crime or religious terrorists…

    WHO suffers the most..?

    The poor little kids who miss their Mommies…

    His extreme punishments are UNFORGIVABLE for Antonovich the former school teacher…

    How does he live with himself..?

    He has no shame or compassion for the poor SUFFERING little kids…

    Antonovich does it FOR MONEY…
