City Clerk on Border Patrol
Editor's Note: A version of this letter to readers also appeared in CityWatch.com
My heart was racing. The adrenaline was pumping. I could barely catch
my breath. I couldn't remember the last time I had felt so fearful.
I was ready to call 911, but hesitated just long enough to remember
that I actually had nothing to fear after all, because the LA City
Clerk was protecting me and all that I cared most about in the whole
Yes, indeed. My fear that a pretend stakeholder might use the dark of
night to sneak over the boundary from the 118 Freeway and into
Chatsworth just in time to be a candidate for the March 2 election was
totally unfounded because the city clerk's office was there "holding
everyone to a higher standard."
No longer do I have to worry that a stealth stakeholder might immigrate
from east of the center line of Corbin Avenue and demand to run for a
4-year term on the all-powerful Chatsworth Neighborhood Council.
No longer do I have to worry that a stealth stakeholder might sit in
the back of our meeting room begging to help make our community better.
Chatsworth has all at-large board seats. Under the City Clerk's edict,
no longer would Chatsworth stakeholders have to rely on a simple system
where candidates - and voting stakeholders - used the affirmation
required by the CNC Bylaws. Previously, a person merely declared under
penalty of perjury that he or she really was a stakeholder and was
allowed to seek office and/or vote for the 21 at-large director seats.
This had worked extremely well since CNC was certified in early 2003.
But this is 2010. We have moved to modern times when Neighborhood
Councils no longer run their own elections. Now we have the
professionals in the city clerk's office running our elections.
I could finally take a deep breath again and relax, knowing that the
city clerk's office wouldn't settle for a simple flash of
identification. No, no way. They were "holding everyone to a higher
standard" and requiring two forms of identification for all candidates.
They even have an 8-page list of acceptable forms of ID included in the
17-page candidate filing packet that had replaced the simple, single
page that Chatsworth had used for the previous six elections.
No. The city clerk's office is there to protect us all from the
possibility of a plain, average citizen showing up and asking to
participate in the grassroots efforts of a Neighborhood Council but not
having two forms of ID. And, of course, all my fears have been soothed
because I know that every person who wants to be a candidate who faxes
their identification (rather than showing up in person to file) will be
1,000% honest with whatever they fax.
I don't have to worry that some drive-by stakeholder will ask a third
grader with basic Photoshop skills to doctor his identification to show
a fake address. I don't have to worry that the pretend stakeholder will
completely fabricate two pieces of ID just to be a member of the
Chatsworth Neighborhood Council. I don't have to worry that the
immigrant stakeholder will use ID that doesn't prove any connection to
I don't have to worry that a real "fake" stakeholder wouldn't care if
they falsified identification. The honest people will be honest and
show real ID. It's the dishonest people who don't care who will fake
the ID in order to be candidates. And no matter how high the "higher
standard" the city clerk's office requires, a person who wants to fake
his status will be able to do so quite easily and the city clerk's reps
aren't likely to be able to stop it.
Councils that have "specialty" seats with specific requirements
obviously need to know that potential candidate meet that threshold.
With all at-large seats in Chatsworth, this is not an issue.
I don't have a worry in the world because the city clerk is "holding
everyone to a higher standard," blocking all those potential
undocumented stakeholders and candidates at the gates to Chatsworth.
I personally had a very satisfying experience at the city clerk's
office near Union Station in December. After testifying before the
Board of Neighborhood Commissioners at City Hall, I decided on the spur
of the minute to find the election division and file my papers.
I filled out my name and CNC address and the other required information
and presented my Council President business card along with a CNC card
identifying me as "an official stakeholder of the Chatsworth
Sorry, the business card was not acceptable because they weren't sure
PO Box 3395, Chatsworth, CA 91313, was actually within CNC's legal
boundaries. But when I gave them a street address for the Chatsworth
Post Office, and marked its location on a map of the CNC boundaries,
they decided to accept it.
Whew. Thank goodness no person in the world has ever faked a business card for any purpose! (Mine was very real. I promise.)
They had to get a supervisor to look at the "official CNC stakeholder"
card because they had never seen such identification. The supervisor
decided it wasn't worthy enough of the "higher standard." Their list of
acceptable ID includes "membership card for a horse owners club."
Perhaps my honorary purple Corral 54 baseball cap could have sufficed.
So, I offered my Costco American Express card, which proves that
someone paid Costco for me to have a membership, but certainly doesn't
prove that I have any connection to Chatsworth to meet their "higher
standard." Costco doesn't even have a Chatsworth location. And the
credit card actually expired more than three years ago.
Bingo. Approved. I became an official candidate based on a business
card and a Costco credit card. Yes sir, that's the "higher standard."
Let me remind you that the city changed the definition of stakeholder
for all Neighborhood Councils. Chatsworth adds a slight modification: A
stakeholder is any person who lives, works, owns property or boards a
horse within the CNC boundaries or declares a stake in the community
and shows a factual basis for it.
With such a broad definition, I contend that you only have to be a
living, breathing human being to qualify - and I'm not sure about the
human part of that. Whenever I am asked if a person qualifies, I
respond that the fact that the person is asking means that they are a
Among the city clerk's list of "approved" identification for candidates
is a valid driver's license for a homeless candidate. I guess that
means that showing a specific address and also being homeless meet the
"higher standard." A Social Security card is acceptable, even though
the card only proves someone has a Social Security number. And, of
course, the card specifically says that it cannot be used for
To be fair, a candidate could also use a utility bill or rental
agreement, but that might exclude roommates, significant others or
So, out of curiosity, I asked the nice people in the election division
what kind of identification I would need to run for LA City Council.
Silly me; I thought that they would have a ton of paperwork and ask for
serious identification to run for a real political office that has real
power, real salary and real consequences. Nope. No identification
required. Nada. None. Not even one form.
But, I will definitely sleep better tonight knowing that the city clerk
is "holding everyone to a higher standard" by requiring two forms of ID
to run for the all-powerful Chatsworth Neighborhood Council, which has
Bylaws that require only self-affirmation, no ID at all.
As I told BONC, among other people, I truly believe that I hold
candidates to a much higher standard. While the city clerk is busy
requiring two forms of ID to qualify as a candidate, I impose the
highest standard of all.
I ask each potential candidate: "Do you want to participate?" What
higher standard could there possibly be for grassroots involvement?

WRITE-IN FILING CONTINUES
FOR MARCH 2 COUNCIL VOTE
Interested Chatsworth stakeholders can file through Feb. 1 as write-in candidates for the Chatsworth Neighborhood Council election.
Twenty-two candidates have already qualified to run for the 21 at-large seats on the board. The Los Angeles City Clerk's office has responsibility to organize elections formerly run by Neighborhood Councils.
Potential candidates should call (213) 978-0444 to register to run. Eleven Councils will have elections on March 2. In addition to the Chatsworth Neighborhood Council
, the others are Canoga Park, Granada Hills North, Granada Hills South, North Hills West, Northridge East, Northridge West, Porter Ran
ch, West Hills, Winnetka and Woodland Hills-Warner Center Neighborhood Councils. Click here
for the City Clerk's election information page. Click here
for the City Clerk's Chatsworth information page.
Voting will be 2 - 8 p.m. at the Chatsworth Train Depot.
Back in 2008 when the City Council authorized the City Clerk to take over the 2010 elections, that office was to establish election procedures and take full responsibility for organizing and conducting the balloting and relieve the neighborhood councils of all responsibility. But during that process, the City Clerk decided to waive Neighborhood Council bylaws that required only half the board to stand for election. This would have provided a "stagger," much like that in the U.S. Senate and other governmental bodies. Instead, the Clerk is requiring that the entire board of 21 be elected.
Councilman Greig Smith sent a letter
to the City Clerk requesting that she comply. And Judith Daniels, Chatsworth Neighborhood Council president, recently met the Clerk in a face-to-face confrontation. The Clerk dug in her heels and refused to budge on the bylaw issue.
Those already qualifying for the ballot are: Linda Ross, Varoujan Deirmenjian, Jelena Csanyi, Mary Kaufman, Chuck Knolls, William Lander, Carol Lucas, Kirt Lowry, Allen Glazer, Dorothy Allison, Kamesh Aysola, Vicki Briskman, Judith Daniels, Diana Dixon-Davis, Vernalie Deirmenjian, Jeff Hammond, Dan Huffman, Linda van der Valk, Andre van der Valk, Lucie Volotzky, Richard Nadel and Scott Munson.

---Back in the day when newspapers were still newspapers
... Back when every paper had a "three-dot journalism" columnist writing short items of news, opinion and boldface names broken up by ellipses... They were the original blogs before there were blogs... Snark before there was snark... Back in the day...
So here we go...
Oops! When you weren't looking the city slipped further over the edge of the financial abyss ... Councilman Bernard Parks

Bigtime shopping center developer Rick J. Caruso
thinks he might want to be mayor ... And since we all know that the Chatsworth Reservoir is the center of the universe, he has some opinions to share about it with Patt "in the Hat" Morrison
of the L.A. Times ...
The Chatsworth thing -- there was a lot of land out there. I wanted to
take a whole bunch of it and let it be a nature preserve, take a bunch
of it and build some soccer fields, because we need more active parks
in this city, and take some of it [for] development. There was a big
open space, which is fine, but it's not necessarily serving the needs
of that community. You could have had something out there for
everybody. Whether it was an active park or a passive park, that was as
important, if not more important, than a space for the geese to land.
There was enough land to accomplish everybody's wish list out there. I
love open space and I love the wilderness. But we also need to take
care of the city that we live in." ...
And then Caruso
has thoughts about Neighborhood Councils ...
I think neighborhood councils are a good thing if they're given the
right amount of authority, and they understand what their role is. We
had a really good experience on a project with a Neighborhood Council
right outside of Beverly Hills. It was great. They became a big
advocate for the project. But I've heard horror stories from people who
are dealing with them. I think the role between the Neighborhood Council and the council office needs to be clearly defined. Is the
council office deferring to the Neighborhood Council? Is the Neighborhood Council deferring to the council office? You get a lot of
chefs in the kitchen there. You can get something resolved at the Neighborhood Council and then you go to your council office and it's
unwound. That's just not good business." ...
Meanwhile, over at the school board, Tamar Galatzan
reports the reopening of a Chatsworth campus that has been mostly shuttered to students for years ... The board approved $3 million to help Our Community Charter School
relocate 275 students to Devonshire Elementary School ...
Rory Markas, played baseball for Chatsworth High
