The following comes from a December 17 Sacramento Bee/Capitol Alert about the swearing in of elected office holders, which occurred at Bishop Alemany High School at
2 p.m. on Saturday, December 15.
“Down in Los Angeles, new Democratic Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra is being sworn in again at a local event. Listed attendees include a number of big names from the south state, including Rep.-elect, City Councilman and former state legislator Tony Cardenas, as well as state Sen. Alex Padilla, former Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes and current Assembly members Bob Blumenfield, Anthony Rendon, Cristina Garcia and Scott Wilk.”
“Then there are Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel, and City Councilmen Jose Huizar, Dennis Zine and Paul Krekorian, himself a former legislator. The ceremony starts at 2 p.m. Saturday at Bishop Alemany High School. There’s even a mariachi band.”
“Given that Greuel is running for mayor in the City of Angels’ municipal election next March, and Fuentes and Blumenfield are among the current and former legislators running for City Council or city attorney, expect to see more public appearances of the sort.”
[Bishop Alemany high school is in the Mission Hills area of the San Fernando Valley, right next to the San Fernando Mission Cemetery. It is named after the first archbishop of San Francisco, who according to the school’s website was “zealous in spreading and strengthening the faith in the hearts of men and women.”]
