Something's wrong here. I didn't know "LoGrande" was a spanish surname? Either that or the Alcalde, Greasy Tony, El Mayor La Raza has had a blood clot break off from his elbow and it has lodged in his brain.

Good job Mayor! It's about time you hired someone based on merit. He's the guy if you want to see positive change in LA.

And another non LA resident is chosen to run a major La department by our corrupt and dishonest mayor.

We need to change the charter and remove the politicians control and give it to the citizens

Lisa Sarkin, the so called planning expert doesn't have the foggiest idea what she is talking about. It is best to not offer opinions about people lest you are considered as corrupt as the person you are praising.

Mike is a great guy, who will work hard to make the city of Los Angeles the best it can be. He's smart, dedicated, hard-working and knows how to get things done.

to "Marlies taylor" who said "Mike is a great guy, who will work hard to make the city of Los Angeles the best it can be. He's smart, dedicated, hard-working and knows how to get things done."

1) Is he paying you to posting glowing accolades? His worth ethic in reality from someone who knows is to stay away from the public and not do a lick of work and spend his time sucking up to the council and mayor. If that is your definition of "hard work" you're an idiot.

Google shows you own a skin care place --not even in LA... so how the heck would you know? Are you one of his drinking buddies?

If that is your definition of "hard work" you're an idiot.

Marlies Taylor is probably his sister or related to him. Anyone who has ever met this guy knows he is a lame ass. Probably has compromising pictures of the mayor.
