Studio City Residents need to know that even though the recall hearing where furious constituents gathered signatures to have Lisa Sarkin removed from office for various forms of shameless conduct ended last summer, it continues for the residents who spoke out about how Sarkin in her offical position on the Studio City Neighborhood Council had been working against constituents and lobbying for developer, Richard Weintraub.  The emails from that period, unlike incumbent candidates, do not lie.

To refresh the local memory, Richard Weintraub is the developer who Sarkin worked with closely for the years that he failed to pay $1.6M in City transit occupancy as well as parking occupancy taxes, in favor of a less expensive pay-to-play arrangement with councilmember Krekorian’s office to have half a million in public money waived and to get the surplus firehouse next to Sportsmen’s Lodge without competitive bidding.

The painful truth, and something that should be reviewed and remembered as residents consider who to vote for and who NOT TO VOTE for in the upcoming Neighborhood Council election on April 7, 2016, is that Richard Weintraub and his lawyers have subpoena’d those very same local residents for “all documents relating to the Neighborhood Council and Lisa Sarkin.”

So, message received loud and clear, if you reach out for help in Studio City you will face a horrifying and scary retaliation.

That’s why, as a thirty year resident who does not stomach corruption well, and one who knows that the Malibu Lumber Yard is awful, not great, I have brought this and other issues to the County District Attorney of Los Angeles.

Lisa Sarkin does not speak for all residents of Studio City.
