What follows is Carole Tremblay's bio on the Public Health Foundations Enterprise webpage (link). The sentence you are going to want to note is this: "Since moving to Los Angeles in 1990, Ms. Tremblay has led development for various nonprofit organizations, including, most recently, as Chief Development Officer for Pacific Clinics, the largest nonprofit mental health organization in Southern California."
Next in view is a screen shot from the Focus Point Academy website (link). The sentence you are going to want to pay attention to here reads, "The Focus Point Academy is a cooperative effort staffed and funded by the Pasadena Unified School District, the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, and Pacific Clinics."
Carole D. Tremblay is a principal player in an enterprise that does does business with the Pasadena Unified School District. A bit of a cozy relationship at this point, but not any crime. Where this does become a problem legally is that this had to be declared by law when Carole's happening hubby, Larry Torres, announced that he was running for a seat on the Pasadena Unified School District's Board of Education. This needed to be done on something the State of California FPPC calls Form 700. As you can see below, no such connection to Pacific Clinics is mentioned. Even though it puts money into the pockets of Loose Larry and his family.
Anybody detecting a pattern of behavior here? Larry Torres hid his DUI conviction, is he now also attempting to hide a family business relationship with the Pasadena Unified School District? Which, given his candidacy, would be illegal.
You can't vote for a misfit character like this. How are you going to be able to trust him if he gets elected? Please cast your vote for Sandra Siraganian. Torres is too damn sleazy to serve our children.
Tonight's City Council Meeting
If you are into art in public places, or testimony from the Chiefs about the efficacy of their respective public safety operations, then tonight will be your sweet and mighty joy. Otherwise it could be a fast track to your personal dreamland.
However, there are two sources of authentic excitement. The first one is the demolition permit abeyance, which is described on the City Council Meeting Agenda this way:
This is a Public Hearing, and it is Item #2 on the Agenda. I'd get there early. I am sure there will be some friends and neighbors speaking.
The other item that merits your close attention is one you will not be allowed to witness personally. But you can certainly imagine what will be going on behind the veil with this one.
Why yes, it is The Tattler's girlfriend, Julie Tschida "Shame on You!" Brown (link), the fabulous lady from the big engineering firm who wants to raze the historic and beloved Henry A. Darling home and replace it with a particularly unappealing McMansion (link). This while also pulling off a big fat lot split to pay for the atrocity.
So in addition to all of that, Julie now wants to sue Sierra Madre as well? What a blessing to this community she has been.
See you at the meeting tonight. It is not often that you'll get the results from a barnburner of a BOE election and a City Council meeting at the same time. Too much fun for most.
I'll be there, though. You should go, too.
