HCIDLA General Manager Resigns

By Darryl DuFay

As it becomes clearer that the billion dollar “Homeless Industry” is in deep trouble of their own making, the City/County leadership in charge of the homeless are abandoning their positions of power.  First it was Peter Lynnn, Executive Director of LAHSA  who resigned 31 December 2019.

Now, it is Rushmore Cervantes, General Manager, of HCIDLA (Housing Community Investment Department of Los Angeles), which controls all of the property owned by the City of Los Angeles.  It also …”facilitates the funding of housing projects with federal, state and local money, inspects and enforces city codes meant to prevent shoddy conditions in apartment complexes, and oversees program to assist poor Angelenos, among other responsibilities.” (see LA Times article below)

The LA City Council is supporting its own Homelessness and Poverty Committee’s Motion for an “investigation” of LAHSA mismanagement.  A similar Motion for  HCIDLA would be in order.<http://enewspaper.latimes.com/infinity/article_share.aspx?guid=6d024074-992e-4a32-81c7-e1a8af57edee
