What is the probability that the City will go to Stage 3 water conservation mandates within a couple of months?
Sharon Brewer
45:44
No more swimming pools or spas allowed to be built. Problem with mandatory water usage limits do not apply to any city addresses if there is no separate water meter--no incentive to reduce usage--should apply to ALL City residential addresses! Also more building in City will impact water usage. Anyone know number of individual addresses in city versus DWP addresses receiving water bills? Do City buildings receive a bill from DWP for water usage?
Cindy Cleghorn

Does DWP help with street tree plantings? In our commercial areas ?

Tony Wilkinson

This morning in the NC-DWP MOU 8:30 am meeting, they said we are down to only 50% of water for city use (50% for "the environment"). It's a big theft.

01:03:22
This is not Code of Conduct. This was a report about the diversity training for employees. The DONE report asked for an ordinance to give sweeping blanket powers to the DONE GM to (1) decide all trainings by fiat, and (2) write into NC bylaws that requires every NC to be the enforcer and throw off the board anyone who did not take the required trainings.
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep

Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
01:11:41
People also leave because they are not being treated with respect and certain board members are not abiding by the rules and regulations that we have learned in the training about being transparent with our budget and encouraging ALL schools, non-profits, etc. to apply for NPGs . I think mandatory trainings are important but accountability is just as important. I also think it's important that we make these trainings accessible to all, taking into consideration language needs, educational background, etc.
Sharon Brewer
01:11:54
When did the Ad Hoc committee regarding training have a meeting? I signed up for it, but never received any notice of a meeting? Also when did the meeting take place for this Ad Hoc agenda recommendation?
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:12:22
Tony and Miho make excellent points re:equality of access. We should advocate for this as an alliance. With respect to neanderthals remaining neanderthals: training is not meant to change minds (though some may change) but BEHAVIOR. Opposing this is not a winning argument.
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:13:26
Who here has successfully opposed trainings and kept their jobs?
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
01:14:01
Sharon, we didn't end up having the Ad Hoc Meeting but we had the Working Group Meeting (which this motion came out of) on Sunday, March 20. I believe we will be meeting the 3rd Sunday afternoon each month
Glenn Bailey
01:16:36
I still wonder why a longtime Neighborhood Council leader such as Tony Wilkinson still has not take the Anti-Bias (ABLE) training (according to the EmpowerLA webpage for Panorama City NC https://empowerla.org/pcnc/)???
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:17:34
Right on, Adrianna!
Pat Bates Encino Rep
01:18:35
Don't we have the City Council to blame for the Director's response? DONE was mandated to make the training mandatory by the city council. I do agree the NCs should have input on the nature of training.
Tony Wilkinson
01:18:38
I am opposing the total training burden because I see it limiting participation in NCs, as I said. I think that is a valid argument. I would also make the case that a voluntary training with board peer pressure to take it is VASTLY more productive than mandatory training. Honestly, Lauren, I get from your question the implication of "If anyone opposes this demand, we will get them fired." I have done LOTS of reading about the underlying philosophy behind this particular approach to social justice, and think that the do it or you die approach is a standard and predictable element of the philosophy.
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:18:56
The City Council and the Mayor give the General Manager their powers / authority. Don't make this personal, it's not.
Tony Wilkinson
01:21:12
To the current topic, and what Lauren just said in chat, the General Manager is doing exactly what her boss (the Mayor) wants her to do. She should not be demonized for policies even if we think a policy is inadvisable.
Sharon Brewer
01:21:39
Mandatory training are a result of issues that have happened at NC meetings that City Council becomes aware of.
Max Kirkham, GWNC (He/Him)
01:22:53
Amen Rachel!
David Rockello(hey/you)RVNC-Rep
01:23:06
If all training was live & broadcast as a webinar than this training could be made mandatory but we are still under COVID restrictions. So any mandatory move is an obvious power grab! Have live meetings again & than mandatory things can happen! till than the status quo will have to be the flavor of the day... respect all people we all serve & get off Zoom as soon as possible for NC meetings!
Tony Wilkinson
01:24:51
Rachael Rose speak the truth. The Plan for NCs (the ordinance) probably already gives the GM power. We in the committee believe the request for a NEW specific ordinance is dangerous because it could get WORSE and mandate sweeping powers that are not clearly spelled out in The Plan.
David Uebersax: Winnetka NC Rep
01:26:02
I think that there are also concerns with the Planning training...particularly where it limits PLUM participation, but it is not required for Board Members that may vote on on a PLUM Committee recommendation.
Tony Wilkinson
01:26:53
Personally (please respect everyone's perspective) I have NEVER though of the working group for constructive change as having ANYTHING to do with the DEI trainig. It is about the SUM TOTAL of ALL of the added rules and regulations being placed on NCs that make it harder for us to do the work we originally signed up to do.
Tony Wilkinson
01:27:01
thought
Rachael Rose Luckey
01:28:43
If you say so Tony but I am not buying it…
Asaad Alnajjar, P.E.
01:30:19
The current Anti-Bias (ABLE) training is not adequate and not effective as it lacks professional approach to address issue. The way it is prepared at this time is more of just fill in the blank to elevate City liability and does NOT address Ethics violations, Discrimination, Equity and so forth. If these issues are not addressed then no training can achieve any meaningful results.
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:31:11
No, Glen -- that was NO excuse for bullying a child. That woman was warned more than once. Does someone need to be trained in not being an asshole to a kid?
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
01:31:22
I think making the training relevant, collaborative, interactive, and accessible is also key to any kind of mandatory training. We had a mandatory board retreat training as a result of being in exhaustive efforts but despite Jose (our NEAs good faith effort) I felt the training was not really appropriate for our NC and we were merely lectured to for over two hours. I do applaud GM Beltran for reaching out to me and wanting to know from me and a few other board members how DONE can better address our accessibility and language needs. I think she is doing the best job she can given the circumstances that she is under (I believe DONE's budget was reduced significantly and DONE has several vacancies and we still are doing with COVID). Again, we are elected officials and we need to be held accountable and ONE way to do that is to have mandatory trainings. The only thing that I request is to provide us a forum to collaborate on ideas AND provide us with advance notice of the mandatory trainings
Cindy Cleghorn
01:31:32
Thanks Glenn.
Tony Wilkinson
01:32:23
To give you some more evidence, I know perfectly well that it is impossible to take the DEI (any DEI) 'training' and not come out as biased, because that is the very point of the 'training'. I also think the radical right that yells and screams about the evils of "CRT" are not making any progress. Rather, I want to do work that actually makes a difference in inclusion and equity. We need more affirmative speech and less take down the enemy speech.
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
01:32:57
And an opportunity to comply with the trainings in a realistic timeframe. I believe I was on an extended vacation in Mexico when the ABLE training was required and I believe we had only a few months to comply
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
01:35:45
I think we also need to revise our grievance procedures.
David Rockello(hey/you)RVNC-Rep
01:37:14
Any "PLUM" planning & land use, training should be for the Board members, mandatory, they are the ones making taking the final vote... Stakeholders on the committee are there for participation & getting other viewpoints that may be different from the Board's choice. Like a second opinion from the community! Why should they have to be brainwashed by the City to follow the rules when they are advisory to the Official Advisory Board?!? More Opportunities to be open to more Stakeholders invites more people in the door so we can all build our bench of neighborhood buy-in!!!
Sharon Brewer
01:37:38
NC's are not addressing the bad behavior of their board members and the NEA is also not helping with addressing these bad behaviors--reason for mandated trainings.
Max Kirkham, GWNC (He/Him)
01:37:46
It is unfair to suggest that trainings are created to afford an avenue to member removal. It implies malicious intent without proof and denies the real issues prompting the trainings.
David Uebersax: Winnetka NC Rep
01:39:38
We just heard that the Code of Conduct was updated to deal with a particular issue. We can hopefully agree then that it is valuable to avoid any such confusion about movibation.
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:39:45
NCs have shown a staggering inability to police themselves and their members. The bullying is usually aimed at fellow Board members. Training is a chance to get everyone on the same page with public behavior expectations to prevent removal -- it's proactive. We should engage and be at the table with quality and accessibility of the coming training requirements. It's coming . Get on board.
Tony Wilkinson
01:40:09
What, specifically, in NOT INCLUSIVE about the wording of the motion. It doesn't mention any specific training, and it was not meant to do so. It is about a blanket power. I genuinely don't understand the non-inclusive aspect.
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:40:55
To the person speaking now: BRAVA
Max Kirkham, GWNC (He/Him)
01:41:57
Agreed, thank you Connye. Well said.
Tony Wilkinson
01:42:34
All systems of laws represent only the power to the proponent to promulgate those las. Therefore the relationship of DONE to the NCs *is* a power relationship. Does anyone recognize the theory under which I am making that assertion?
Asaad Alnajjar, P.E.
01:42:38
Bottom line here you need to empower the General Manager to address training and provide venue to remove both non compliance and address the violations. The GM should be able to remove through bylaws procedure anyone who violates Ethics and misconduct. In conclusion Training must be mandated but the same time violations must be stopped.
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:42:46
For starters, Beltran's name needs to be removed from this motion -- de personalize this motion. "Common sense is not so common."--Voltaire
David Rockello(hey/you)RVNC-Rep
01:43:10
Training should not be an exclusionary tool that DONE uses to prevent more participation from Stakeholders that may one day be a Board member... separate Board Training from Stakeholder Training now or we empower no one!!!
Cindy Cleghorn
01:43:51
We’ve always worked together through our alliances, networking with each other, NC Congress events, meetings with City departments. Certain efforts to power grab have changed this in recent times.
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
01:44:17
I second Adriana's amendment
Tony Wilkinson
01:44:18
YES, I would be happy to support Adriana's proposal. However, I STILL want to head off at the pass the request for a new ordinance.
Lauren (she/they) Echo Park NC
01:44:22
I agree with Adrianna. Table this motion
Rachael Rose Luckey
01:45:17
People need to be making motions. Right now the only motion on the table is Adrianna’s…

No one moved the motion on the agenda
AdrianaDeLaCruz(DelReyNCRep)
01:47:34
Motion to create an Empower LA working group which is compromised of Lancc representatives, BONc Commissioners, Empower LA General Manager and staff. (1. Mandatory Trainings 2. Translation services 3. CIS submissions etc)
David Uebersax: Winnetka NC Rep
01:48:07
Comprised
raquel beltran
01:48:09
Dear NC Board members, may I request that in the future the Department be invited to discuss these matters as part of a fact finding process before motions are introduced for consideration. thus will allow you to have all the information before making a decision. Thank you.
Jennifer Goodie, MINC rep
01:48:26
I don't think a rec of a working group is enough to protest the ordinance
Tony Wilkinson
01:48:33
Adriana, didn't LANCC create a training workgroup already, which has never met?
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
01:49:14
Also, I don't think it should just be limited to LANCC but should include all alliances
AdrianaDeLaCruz(DelReyNCRep)
01:50:56
My motion was already moved
Sharon Brewer
01:51:51
Any working group created and meetings held need to noticed, be available to anyone who wants to attend and recommendations bought back to NCs for their input before going forward.
Max Kirkham, GWNC (He/Him)
01:52:32
General Manager Beltrán is in the meeting. We should give her the chance to respond if she has something to add.
Liz Amsden
01:53:04
I agree with the idea of a working group but not under DONE. There is an existing committee - that it did not meet is on them. Is anyone interested in joining them

Just so I am clear, we have formed a workgroup in response to a recommendation from a workgroup 😂
Tony Wilkinson (PanCity)
02:04:41
Jennifer, we passed a resolution calling for a working group on training that included NCs, DONE and BONC. It was not specified as a committee of LANCC.
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
02:04:43
Not sure what instant reply is, Rachael.
Sharon Brewer
02:05:44
Please identity agenda item for the recording before discussion or report.

02:05:44
So if LANCC is not forming it, then who is?
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
02:07:22
I believe we are saving the chat so here are the ones that I was able to record that voted against Adriana's motion - Jennifer, Lydia, Mirian, and XX; abstained - Len Shaffer and XX; and in favor 12 including ??? Again, I would appreciate that the reps of the votes should be included in the minutes and not just the vote. We also should include which NCs attended the LANNC meeting. There are 99 NCs but only about 18 NCs are represented here
Rachael Rose Luckey

Personally, if I were a LANCC official, I would take the initiative to work with DONE and BONC to assure that this working group is formed (or, if either DONE or BONC opposes it, come back to LANCC with the information that one or both of those parties do not support such a group.
Miho Murai, HCNNC Rep
02:08:42
Rachael, many people do not have time to watch a three hour meeting but review the minutes to see what happened and to see if they want to attend the next meeting. I believe minutes are essential to having an efficient and transparent Committee

And I'd like to give you an opportunity to speak out against Mayor Eric Garcetti who nominated you for your current job. Do you approve of him allegedly encouraging and rewarding sexual assault amongst former political staff/consultants? Isn't it rewarding sexual assault and insulting to the 1 billion people of India to send Mr. Garcetti as Ambassador? You used to be Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles, so I'd love to know your position and if you've changed your stance on sexual assault?

I’m asking your position now.,

For the record, Ms. Beltran refuses to answer the question.

If the case had no prosecutable crime it would help if that was stated. The last time we had a huge financial problem (Las Vegas trip with NC $) it was found by NC board members, but blamed on the whole system. We need to put this to rest gracefully to defend ourselves.

Personal opinion is that we need state recognition that deliberative but ADVISORY bodies need an OPTION to use virtual meetings or hybrid meetings, with some people participating from a NON-PUBLIC location like their home.

Lou, What does your question to the GM regarding Garcetti appointment to India have to do with NCs? Also, everyone has the right to refuse to comment when asked what their opinion is on a certain subject. Of course you have the right to not respond to this Chat message.

Agreed...there would certainly be a Public location, but if all the (voting) Board Members are there, other virtual stakeholders surely needn't list *their* location.

I'm about to write to ITA asking for city email addresses in order to follow the rules for registering media accounts. :))

Here is the simple solution- Terminate all 4 year terms on NC's that get into EE! 4 year terms are a privilege of a fully functional NC. It shouldn't be written into the bylaws unless there is Approval of BONC & BONC should be able to revoke that if the NC has proven to not live up to expectations of regular elections for stakeholders to vote the bums out! HCNNC & MacArthur Park NC are problems because there's no accountability to the Stakeholders every 2 years!EPNC has earned the private unless they get back into Exhaustive Efforts!

@Sharon, the monthly update from the Dept talks about Garcetti going to India, so it seems like it would be relevant

David, you are very free with applying your ideas to other NCs. I though we honored individual choice.

Jamie— do they even know they’re lobbyists? Specifically expedites in land use projects ? Non profits on environmental justice?
Keren Waters, GHNNC

Opps! The GHNNC Free DocuShred Event is Saturday 4/23/2022. Please see the Empower LA Newsletter or our website www.ghnnc.org for the information.

The present requirements for lobbying registration are specific

@Cindy, I would like to think people know when they are paid money to advocate for something
Jamie York
03:09:14
If you suspect someone is a lobbyist but not registered that would need to go to the ethics comission
Cindy Cleghorn
03:09:25
Is there a link to the specifics ?

I don’t think they all know. And NCs shouldn’t police.

And it’s not the ncs who police. It is is the ethics commission.
