Motion: Motion to distribute the attached language to the Neighborhood Councils (along with a copy of David Ryu’s original motion for reference) to allow them to craft their own CIS on missing elements of CF 18-0467, with a direction that the CIS be submitted as and noted on the filing that the NC takes a neutral position with separate opinions on different issues and, to avoid the character limitations inherent in filing a CIS, use the language as a basis to build their own CIS to be attached to the CIS filing.

Motion to distribute the attached language to the Neighborhood Councils (along with a copy of David Ryu’s original motion for reference) to allow them to craft their own CIS on missing elements of CF 18-0467. NCs are free to amend and adjust as they feel fit.
Jennifer Goodie
37:47
That sounds like a failure of the Department to train filers
Jamie York
37:56
There’s also folks that have issues getting the PDFs to attach
Liz Amsden
37:57
Motion to distribute the attached language to the Neighborhood Councils (along with a copy of former Councilmember David Ryu’s original motion introduced on May 25, 2018 for reference) to allow them to craft their own CIS on missing elements of CF 18-0467. Neighborhood Councils are free to amend and adjust as they feel fit. Liz/Lynda
Jennifer Goodie

I think I agree with Raquel on this.
Tess Taylor

Yes, that is fair. What Raquel says.

01:11:19
If you want to get involved with council expansion and independent redistricting discussion
Liz Amsden
01:12:36
Motion that, due to the greater-than-usual turnover in the City Council’s members, that Neighborhood Councils seize the opportunity to submit a CIS on CFs 21-1472 and 22-1196 requesting that the City Council take immediate steps to (1) significantly expand the number of Councilmembers so that each represents a more manageable number of Angelenos, (2) set up an independent committee to redistrict the City appropriately, and (3) take steps as needed to ensure districts are more competitive and that there is more grass-roots participation and more equitable representation.
Jennifer Goodie
01:15:55
I think the CM salaries have room for cuts, but the field deputies have very small salaries
Tony Wilkinson
01:17:48
An alternative #3 we had in the working group was: "(3) that council member salaries and office staff and budgets be adjusted downward to reflect the smaller districts." (That addresses the compensation package without being too specific. NCs can do whatever they want with these suggestions)
Brandi D'Amore
01:17:56
Reminder: by statute, City Council salaries have to be commensurate with judges https://codelibrary.amlegal.com/codes/los_angeles/latest/laac/0-0-0-524
Grace Yoo, UNNC
01:18:41
We can change our Charter that ties salaries to Judges salaries
Tony Wilkinson
01:20:09
The "champions of council expansion" are developing a definition that will put it off forever, so they can APPEAR to be pro-expansion without ever doing it.
Tess Taylor
01:21:21
Well said Jamie York.
Jennifer Goodie
01:21:26
possibly lame brainstorm, what if there was language maxing out CD population and requiring size be adjusted when limits are hit
Tony Wilkinson
01:22:05
Agreeing with Jamie York, that is why the draft motion from the working group did not directly address salary reduction. The alternative #3 is a soft way to get in the salary issue. It would get more public support, but it may not be the ideal draft motion (vs what is on the floor).
Phyllis Ling (HCNNC, not voting)
01:22:40
I completely agree with Jamie York about the salary issue.
Jennifer Goodie
01:23:21
They do charter language that starts in certain years aligned with terms all the time
Jamie York
01:24:21
23-0002-s1 is the Monica Rodrigues resolution

But it’s partly bc of 99 ncs lol
Lionel Mares
01:25:26
Re: Salaries for Council MembersI am in favor of darkest reductions for city council members and city departments general managers; including senior management.I took a look at the salaries + benefits, it is too much!
Lionel Mares
01:26:27
The money should be used for community -development, beautification, and social services; including street services and infrastructure + public transportation.
Lionel Mares
01:27:06
Correction: reduction of salaries for council members

ADRIANA DE LA CRUZ
01:30:41
please confirm the language of the FINAL motion prior to our vote: MOTION that, due to the greater-than-usual turnover in the City Council’s members, that Neighborhood Councils seize the opportunity to submit a CIS on CFs 21-1472 and 22-1196 requesting that the City Council take immediate steps to (1) significantly expand the number of Councilmembers so that each represents a more manageable number of Angelenos, (2) set up an independent committee to redistrict the City appropriately, and (3) take steps as needed to ensure districts are more competitive and that there is more grass-roots participation and more equitable representation.
Tony Wilkinson
01:32:45
Adriana, the language before us is now (1) expand council 'substantially' (2) with an independent redistricting commission, (3) to aid in grassroots candidates [NOT to reduce salaries, that was removed in committee)

Grace Yoo, UNNC
01:33:09
We can tie the expansion of council members with redistricting of new districts to happen within one year, so that we have the larger council members having elections and seated without too much time passing.

https://cityclerk.lacity.org/lacityclerkconnect/index.cfm?fa=ccfi.viewrecord&cfnumber=22-1196

Shouldn't that be on the NC to figure out?
ADRIANA DE LA CRUZ
01:35:24
MOTION that, due to the greater-than-usual turnover in the City Council’s members, that Neighborhood Councils seize the opportunity to submit a CIS on CF’s CIS 21-1472 and CIS 22-1196 requesting that the City Council take immediate steps to (1) significantly expand the number of Council members so that each represents a more manageable number of Angelenos, (2) set up an independent committee to redistrict the City appropriately, and (3) take steps as needed to ensure districts are more competitive and that there is more grass-roots participation and more equitable representation.
Liz Amsden
01:41:21
Motion to distribute the following to Neighborhood Councils to review and submit as a CIS on CF 21-0407: the ___________________ Neighborhood Council strongly objects to the report on CF 21-0407 submitted by Raquel Beltrán on behalf of DONE and the Neighborhood Councils and call for it to be redone with input from experienced Neighborhood Council board members with factual and analytical errors corrected, with more focus on the specifics requested by the Arts, Parks, Health, Education and Neighborhoods Committee.
Tony Wilkinson
01:51:10
And there are some data issues that WE (that is the collective DONE-NC interest) need to address, including the City Clerk losing or hiding all of the election statistics that DONE faithfully collected for years, and put into a spreadsheet that goes back to NC origins, which has STOPPED at the date the Clerk took over operations.
Tony Wilkinson
01:56:59
The failure to return ballots is at the Clerk's doorstep because they had no interest in follow-up. (A few days ago I got a text from the Secretary of State reminding me to return my general election ballot.) The same lack olf concern applied to CANDIDATE FILING. Panorama City did EDDM mailers to low income renter areas, got MANY competitive candidate, and then LOST most of them because the City Clerk would not give US their name and EMAIL so WE could follow up. Many of these folks did not get their documents in by the deadline and were dropped. Need to correct THAT Issue in 2022-2023.
Lionel Mares
01:57:22
The Special Election 🗳️ for Council District 6 info and Press Release has been posted!
Lionel Mares
01:57:32
It is slated for 2023
Lionel Mares
01:57:59
I can forward the info ℹ️ if you like.
Lionel Mares
01:58:16
I will reach out to NC within CD 6
Tony Wilkinson
01:58:25
Concur with Doug. (Opposition should not be our first reaction.)
Tony Wilkinson
02:02:54
A jaded person's reaction: If the report did not support Councilwoman Rodriguez' mistaken perceptions regarding board seats, at-large voting, and self-affirmation elections by deliberately NOT offering conclusions, then it is affirmatively in the interest of NCs.
Jamie York
02:03:37
Should we not oppose a report that is filled with inaccuracies?
Jamie York
02:04:07
Regardless of conclusions or lack thereof the math and raw numbers are incorrect in many places
Kathleen Edwards, NWNC
02:04:30
I would have to agree with Jamie’s comment.
Tony Wilkinson
02:07:42
Sounds fair to me. If we ask the Dept to consult with NCs, then the NCs should consult with the Department. That s what the NC-DWP MOU specifies, mutual notice about what each party is considering as actions.

Link to the City Clerk's Council District 6 Special Election news release: https://ens.lacity.org/clk/elections/clkelections524166536_11042022.pdf
Jennifer Goodie
02:08:42
The report on the Budget Advocates issued by DONE said it was due to complaints by John Di Gregorio and Josh Nadel, who at the time were forming their own Budget Alliance. It seems to me that there was a bit of conflict of interest, that was not mentioned just now.
Tony Wilkinson
02:09:45
Not intereste in screen share, but I would very much like a link to the document for after-meeting reference
Lionel Mares
02:10:37
@Glenn Bailey - thanks! Looks like the City Clerk released another statement (document) pertaining to Special Election Council District 6.
Lionel Mares
02:11:10
I am learning a lot about local government. I was browsing the Ethics Department website.
Lionel Mares
02:13:00
@Glenn Bailey - are you getting the City Clerk’s emails via ENSLA?
Lionel Mares
02:13:28
Subscription via ENS?
Glenn Bailey
02:13:58
@Lionel - Yes I am receiving City Clerk's election updates
Tony Wilkinson
02:13:59
Re the graph, I was frustrated by the lack of information about it. It appears that there is a correlation between unreturned ballots and both neighborhood income and neighborhood education, but by different amounts. The actual coefficients or correlation were not provided so we could see the difference, nor did the text contain ANY reference to the to-factor scatter graph.
Tony Wilkinson
02:14:43
two-factor scattergraph
Tony Wilkinson
02:16:08
Jamie, would you kindly send me a copy of your mark-up document? Tony Wilkinson, tonyw.civic@gmail.com (Panorama City NC, as an individual)
Lynda Valencia ASNC
02:17:32
I would like a copy also Lvalencia@asnc.us thank you
Tony Wilkinson
02:18:41
Ms. Beltran does indeed have the patience of Job.
Cesar Aranguri
02:19:22
peer review is standard data and academic practice
Jamie York
02:19:40
I love peer review. It’s the best
Lionel Mares
02:19:46
@Chair of LANCC - can you please share the chat and recording via email later?
ADRIANA DE LA CRUZ
02:19:57
MOTION to postpone further discussion to the December 2022 LANCC meeting to direct the LANCC Working Group to meet and confer with DONE regarding the Dept report on CF 21-0407 and to bring back updates on resolving any discrepancies.
Lionel Mares
02:20:49
There are a lot of council files and resources that was shared that I want to get back to as an individual.
Tony Wilkinson
02:21:18
Really think that staff vs 'elected officials' doesn't match this situation. We are elected by the community to make trouble for the city (in a constructive way) and the GM is appointed by the Mayor to support the entire NC system.
ADRIANA DE LA CRUZ
02:22:02
Wll this is a good first start to that Kay
Tony Wilkinson
02:22:21
Agree with Adriana
Tess Taylor
02:22:25
@Kay Hartman - exactly.
Lionel Mares
02:22:55
Re: Dept. Of Empowerment & NC’sI would like to see more communication and cooperation with both sides. I rarely hear from Department of Neighborhood Councils.
Cesar Aranguri
02:24:19
Procedure is key to democracy. Procedural issues are critical.
Tony Wilkinson
02:24:33
We also need to worry about all of the dangerous animals in the city jungle. One of the candidates for Mayor does not want to keep the NC system and would prefer local advisory bodies appointed by the Mayor.
Cesar Aranguri
02:24:40
procedure is part of service.
Jennifer Goodie
02:25:19
I'd say the redistricting and expansion discussion we just had prior to this is a key example of one of the most important way we can serve our stakeholders
Cesar Aranguri
02:26:07
education on civic procedure is foundational for public service.
Jennifer Goodie
02:26:23
holding the City accountable is tantamount to making sure our stakeholders are served properly
Jennifer Goodie
02:27:26
But I also think that they keep us wound up and distracted so that we cannot get important work done because us being effective is scary for those in power
Kathleen Edwards, NWNC
02:27:43
Tony, one of the State Assembly candidates would so the name, and promotes abolishing the PD. But, we cannot share this info.
Lionel Mares
02:29:12
I would like to see other neighborhood councils help out other neighborhood councils. Some are NOT doing enough. Some are struggling because it’s members don’t do anything
Tess Taylor
02:29:17
@Jamie York is 10000% correct
Raquel Beltran
02:29:21
we have to meet to understand how you ran the numbers
Jamie York
02:29:43
I used your website and data portal
Tony Wilkinson
02:29:49
Heck, numerous candidates and new elected openly support abolishing the police. That is part of the religion of a segment of the dominant political party. Will probably cost the Congress.
Tony Wilkinson
02:31:29
That is why I support Adriana's motion to postpone consideration of this WG4CC motion.
Terrence Gomes
02:31:29
MOTION to postpone further discussion to the December 2022 LANCC meeting to direct the LANCC Working Group to meet and confer with DONE regarding the Dept report on CF 21-0407 and to bring back updates on resolving any discrepancies.

Training Survey https://forms.gle/PgoJWdipkgznadr26
Tony Wilkinson
02:38:05
I have not received the NC Training survey and I'm on the WG4CC. We want to collect significant input from NC board members because we are aware that there are very loud voices on both sides of training issues that may drown out the actual concensus.

One of the leaders in the alternative budget groups has left the NC system. Last I knew the alternative group had only a handful of NC participants.
Tony Wilkinson
02:43:25
The other leader in no longer on the board of the NC which he formerly chaired.
Jennifer Goodie
02:43:30
Have they had meetings in the last few months that you know of, Tony?
Jennifer Goodie
02:44:00
I haven't seen anything on the DONE calendar and have not received an agenda even though I asked to be on their list
Keren Waters
02:44:07
Is there a list of all LANCC voting members and their appointing NC's?
Tony Wilkinson
02:44:07
Not that I have hear of, but I am not a participant in the alternative group.
Tony Wilkinson
02:45:26
Thanks also to my colleagues and our Chair for a certificat for participating, even tho I ran out of gas at the end.
Jennifer Goodie
02:47:01
Who are you trying to exclude from participating, Keren?
Tony Wilkinson
02:49:14
Keren, there used to be a very complete detailed book of representatives kept by David Ubersax. It probably has missed some updates during virtual meetings because it wa passed around the room when we met in person.
Keren Waters
02:50:33
Our voting member Sid Gold is not present today. I am VP of our NC and keep records. It's a simple question to which there should be a simple answer. Thank you.
Kathleen Edwards, NWNC
02:50:34
Karen Waters, I am the NWNC board elected representative to LANCC, however I do not vote on issues that have not been first brought before, discussed and determined by my board.
Glenn Bailey
02:52:22
The LANCC Roster is maintained by the LANCC Vice-Chair David Uebersax, president of the Winnetka NC.
Keren Waters
02:53:03
Thank you Glenn.
Tony Wilkinson
02:53:39
The simple answer is that any person seated on an NC board who is present and willing to self-certify and vote will have their vote accepted. If there are multiple people from an NC, they need to resolve among themselves who will cast the one vote. We are not about to conduct a polling place where participants need to sign in on a voter roll in order to cast a vote.
Jennifer Goodie
02:54:53
I think most of us have sent in documentation that we are appointed though.
ADRIANA DE LA CRUZ
02:54:56
Thank you so much for the support this year. Congress of Neighborhoods. https://www.neighborhoodcongress.la. Planning members please be sure to let us know your mailing address to get that certificate of appreciation to you. https://www.neighborhoodcongress.la/planningcommittee. Adriana.DeLaCruz@DelReyNC.org
Tony Wilkinson
02:57:12
I know Jose Galdamez subscribes to our Panorama City agendas. Howe ver I think we need to hold the NC responsible for their own agendas and not blame the NEA.
Jamie York
02:57:50
The nc doesn’t post to ens tho. So if the error is with ens
Tony Wilkinson
02:58:47
Sorry, your comments on training were all dropped out
Tony Wilkinson
02:59:09
Still dropping out
Jamie York
02:59:32
Very static y still?
ADRIANA DE LA CRUZ

I will ask for the URL and add them to the minutes as mentioned by the GM

Tony Wilkinson
03:03:36
Personally, I don't see why we can't use another portal of the same software that is now used for the Council Files to hold both the CIS and Comment from the Public filings to Boards and Commissions, as well as whatever motions they themselves may choose to include on the site. (That is, use for board and commission documents would be optional, handles by their staffer.

Tony Wilkinson
03:07:10
Keeping the agendas FOREVER would be best. We are still using the USC research from nearly a decade ago that showed the NC item topics were out of touch with the topics that their NEIGHBORHOODS were concerned about. (NC agendas had mostly land use and transportation, The public's main concerns were public safety and education.)
Kathleen Edwards, NWNC
03:07:26
Agreed, Tony!
Jennifer Goodie
03:08:15
storage is very cheap in this day and age
Glenn Bailey
03:10:57
Agreed -- keep NC agendas forever!
Tony Wilkinson
03:11:50
We can solve the challenge by renaming our NCs. One of the North Hills NCs could adopt the REAL name of the community, Sepulveda!!! (Most people who remember that have probably passed away.)
Jamie York

Tony Wilkinson
03:12:47
Thanks Glenn and other friends.
ADRIANA DE LA CRUZ
03:14:02
Tony when you. meet with the GM can you add this to it Liz please? “TONY: We can solve the challenge by renaming our NCs. One of the North Hills NCs could adopt the REAL name of the community, Sepulveda!!! (Most people who remember that have probably passed away.)” Not related to the report review - but add to a TODO list for future meetings..between the working group and Dept.
Jennifer Goodie
03:14:58
I'd like to think Tony was joking because asking NCs to change their name is pretty presumptuous and going to be met with strong feelings
Kathleen Edwards, NWNC
03:16:26
(Northridge West could become Porter Ranch South!)
Tess Taylor
03:16:50
Cost of "somewhere between $10 - 15K to set those up" - Commissioner Shaffer, do you mean NC system-wide, or per NC?
Jennifer Goodie
03:19:00
I've set up hybrid for a non-profit for ~$200. We didn't have to worry about Brown Act. But that's a huge difference. I have to wonder what kind of hardware is being recommended and if it is overkill
Tony Wilkinson
03:20:04
Gee, Adriana. I put that in there with a smile, not serious. The North Hills saga is an interesting story from our neighborhood history. The Anglos West of the 405 didn't like those of us who lived on the East side, so they asked to be called "North Hills' instead of Sepulveda (because that sounded best for real estate values). Then people on the East side of the 405 said (correctly, I might say, because we are mainly Latino) that was discriminatory, ans so Richard Alarcon said our side could be called Sepulveda too. Thus the irony of how a great historical name from the days of Californianos, Sepulveda, was wiped from our local history.
Laura Meyers
03:20:25
What kind of equipment are you talking about? Presume WiFi (hotspot), a unique laptop computer devoted to the meeting/zoom and some sort of larger TV so we in person could see zoom participants?
Tony Wilkinson
03:20:44
could be called North Hills too
Lionel Mares
03:20:55
@ Tony Wilkinson - I agree! Many Neighborhood Councils post Agenda Items that do not reflect the needs and or concerns of their Neighborhood. I feel the same about mines! Uh 😒
Lionel Mares
03:21:32
I am trying to bring positive change to my neighborhood but some members are reluctant or not interested in change.
Tony Wilkinson
03:22:22
I don't know what the working group discussed, but the equipment that is REALLY needed for hybrid is good MICS for EVERY participant. The audio cannot be captured properly for the remove viewers without an elaborate sound system (such as exists in City Hall).
Jennifer Goodie
03:23:16
Thanks to podcasting, you can get pretty good mics for not that much
Tony Wilkinson
03:23:18
When we are all using laptops, every laptop is a personal mic.
Lionel Mares
03:23:36
I prefer Zoom meetings over in person because I get to participate from any location ; participating in other meetings. 🙂
raquel beltran
03:23:36
This is the general information about commissions on the Clerk’s site (updated 2016): https://clerk.lacity.org/sites/g/files/wph1491/files/2021-02/City%20Commissions%20General%20Information.pdf
Lionel Mares
03:26:29
I think that members of the public should have a right to allow those who live outside the neighborhood council to participate. Because every neighborhood is interconnected to one another. We are all affected and impacted.
Tony Wilkinson
03:26:38
Lionel, what we REALLY need is state legislation that puts into the Brown Act permission for legislative bodies that control less that $100,00 annually in public funds to continue to meet online forever AT THEIR OPYION (that is, either in person or online, you choose). For some reason, the city has not made any effort to get this permission and has instead pursued this "hybrid" proposal. Personally, I think "hybrid" will never work effectively.
Tony Wilkinson
03:27:26
Committees are identical to boards, same Brown Act.
Lionel Mares
03:29:04
@ Tony - I agree! I participated in a couple of “Hybrid” meetings with LAPD Foothill for Sun Valley Area, and it is not great. The in person get more attention than those who participate in Zoom. The zoom participation isn’t the same.
Lionel Mares
03:29:26
Hybrid meetings tend to favor those who are there in person over Zoom participants or teleconference
Tony Wilkinson
03:29:27
The use of in-person meetings with no online public comment to both hide their work and exclude public input is a good example of why the Brown Act is obsolete.
Tony Wilkinson

Given that Gov. Newsom has already announced that Feb 28th is the last day of the declared emergency, doesn't this need to be resolved well before then? (Since NCs need to rebook their in-person meeting spaces)
Glenn Bailey
03:33:39
As always, the link to the Zoom recording of this meeting will be posted on the LANCC Meetings website, likely by tomorrow morning.
Lionel Mares
03:35:01
@LANCC - I need help. I have asked the SVANC to agendize the CIS calling the resignation for Kevin de Leon and Gil Cedillo.
raquel beltran
03:35:12
By everyone, thank for the great discussion. I look forward to working with you.
Lionel Mares

Here is the email I received from Norma (Vice Chair)I did not find a council file requesting the resignation of the three council members. If you have it, please share it with me and we will correct the agenda.According to what I read, this is a letter supporting all the council files numbered above the letter.Please ask a LANCC representative for guidance on this. Let me know asap what the results are. Susan does not work on Sundays.Norma

And, Lionel, most of the affluent Anglos (who are conservatives) claim that online meetings disenfranchise "people without online access" as a way to demand in-person meetings. The reality is that everyone in my low income community has a smart phone to get online meetings, but is in a working family with one or no cars and cannot take dive to drive to in person meetings. The mainly Anglo position in favor of in-person meetings doe not match my perception (admittedly I am an old Anglo) of what would best serve low income communities.

@ Tony - I agree

Which is why I want zoom meetings to go on

@Lionel, there is a CF asking for resignation, but maybe just for 2, not 3, depending on when it was moved
Jennifer Goodie
03:36:36
lemme look
Lionel Mares
03:36:44
Okay

Glad e are both on the online forever team. I think NC members themselves will need to contact their state elected officials about this because I have given up hope that the city 'establishment', for whatever their reasons are, will simply never do it.

You could do in on the censure motion https://cityclerk.lacity.org/lacityclerkconnect/index.cfm?fa=ccfi.viewrecord&cfnumber=22-1195

03:38:18
@ Tony - I will
Jennifer Goodie

Ton, you have any proof of your statement.
Terrence Gomes
03:41:36
That is Tony.
Tony Wilkinson
03:42:14
The 'proof' is the UNIVERSAL horror at the leaked tapes.
Jamie York
03:42:39
There’s people calling into council now actively defending kevin and Gil. So it’s not universal.
Jennifer Goodie
03:43:06
Lionel, I'll email you if I find more. I'm missing some. I need to go over notes.

Great comments TONY is really a disheartening a situation that is not indicative of stakeholders of who these council members represent.
Terrence Gomes
03:43:19
I do not think any on that tape were conservatives.
