Anthony Samad: The Los Angeles taxpayer would be astonished with the number of unexcused absences council members have, but these two small-minded council persons — Parks and Perry — wanted to send a message and get some press out of it—and they did.
Anthony Samad: Election night in the 8th District served as an opportunity to send a message to a politician who has lost his respect for constituents and of his constituents.
Anthony Samad: Bernard Parks disrespects people, the political office he holds, and the political processes he engages.
Anthony Samad: Ask yourself the question if you’re an 8th District voter, “Am I getting $50,000 a month value out of the leadership (the) Parks provide in this district?”
Anthony Samad: FORESCEE is the change the 8th district is looking for. Eight years of desperation doesn’t have to continue.
