City Hall perspective

Much as I genuinely would have liked to go, I didn't get to attend the hearing on T-Mobile's ignoble tower plan at City Hall this Monday. I heard it described Monday night. But Ron Kaye went. The former Daily News of Los Angeles editor is famously a Valley dweller. But, as he says on his eponymous blog, he was curious to see how the city would handle the proceedings, which was to feature T-Mobile execs, landlords and a flock of Echo Park folk who wanted T-Mobile to go away. (T-Mobile and landlords didn't show.)

Kaye was turned off by the official in charge of making the hearing run smoothly, Albert Landini, a man some EP activists familiar with the City Hall public hearings scene consider superior. Click here to read.
