Laura Chick Audits LAUSD

Kudos to LA City Controller Laura Chick for successfully pressuring Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Superintendent Roy Romer (kicking and screaming) to surrender records to conduct an audit (finally!).

I worked with Ms. Chick during her years as a City Councilmember and even collaborated with her on a traffic safety project when I was still with the LAPD. Despite the corruption and sleaze of LA’s drug-addicted and corrupt political peers, she’s proven herself as a feisty (yet loveable) pit bull. (She's also a great dancer.)

She’ll make a great mayor for LA one day.
