Bruno, LA’s Watchdog: Antonio’s Incredible Job Opportunity, Apply Now!

Like every bum who has every been homeless, Bruno’s got friends in low places.Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image

You know hiding in the bushes, under freeway overpasses, dark corners of parks — friends who keep their eyes and ears on alert for scraps of food, even food for thought,

It was one of those old watchdogs that came across this nugget in the garbage of one of that army of paid workers in Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign who are lucky enough to have their own very private website to keep in touch and share job opportunities, like this one posted Tuesday by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s press spokesman Sarah Hamilton.

More than just the Messenger
Job Opening – New Media Director, Office of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (Los Angeles)
The Office of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is hiring a New Media Director
Job Description Below:

  • Work with Deputy Mayor and Lead Spokesperson to design and implement online communications strategy.
  • Manage and update online content.
  • Work with Mayor’s policy teams to get accurate, up-to-date information online.
  • Manage day-to-day updating of Mayor’s website and social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Flickr and YouTube.
  • Manage all photo, video, and design production within Mayor’s office.
  • Manage Mayor’s email list, and develop strategy to grow and cultivate the list.
  • Develop long-term strategy for using new-media tools to organize residents support the overall communications strategy.

A dream job for Bruno if he was looking for a work, exactly what I do. I bark the alarm if the mailman or anyone else comes within `100 feet of the house and decide who gets in and who gets mauled. Every dog in the neighborhood spreads the word.

There’s a lot of dogs I know who knew all about social networking.

“Gardeners are here, noisy bastards, I’d like to kill them.”

The word spreads just like that.

If Bruno wasn’t semi-retired, he’d jump at it — got to be worth a lot
more than 2,000 $50 bags of Eukanuba, food for a dog’s whole life.

There must be thousands, tens of thousands who could do that kind of work right here in LA where it seems like nearly everybody is out of work or having a hard time putting chow on the table or wherever they put it..

Trouble is nobody knows about this great opportunity except the privileged few who Sarah Hamilton told about it on the private site for Clinton campaign alumni.

That’s something to bark about.

There’s gotta be some young pup or mangy old dog out there who does how do this stuff and needs a cushy job with the mayor himself.

Just write sarah.hamilton@lacity.org. I tried but haven’t heard back. I even tried calling but she just stepped away and didn’t return my call.

    Are you kidding me? They didnt advertise this job?
    Typical Villaragosa move; try to hire someone from a losing campaign, when the winning (Obama) campaign was known for its new media skills.

  2. Antonio, Ron is perfect to be your New Media Director, keeping your FB, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and web sites up to date. And he knows his stuff, even if he is an old goat. No technophobe, that Ron Kaye. Just look at his blog and all the videos. Great traffic. And that is the other reason he is qualified. Get him off your back. And trust me, he can be had. He has already sold out to the LA Times JV.

    I thought there was a hiring freeze on for all city positions? Given the fiscal state of emergency that we are under and everything.

    The Mayor has no shame. Catch him if you can.

    If I were looking for a job, I’d apply.
    Dogs would be perfect. We tell truth to fiction. We have no guile. When we make a mess we leave it for everyone to see; we don’t sweep it under the rug.
    Of course, that would make us unacceptable candidates to manage the mayor’s Web site…we don’t know how to lie! We can beg, cajole and look at you with dreamy sad eyes to get our way, but we can’t lie and the mayor’s site is just one big fiction barking out chocolate covered lies louder than the howls of an angry pack of wolves.
    One perk I’d enjoy would be to keep that ugly little Monkey at bay. To paraphrase Randy Newman: Small dogs ain’t no damn good!
    Bruno’s Pal,

    P.S. And those messes we make and don’t sweep away…we get punished for them, unlike the mayor and Ticketgate, CRAgate, Phoney Phonetax gate, DWPgate, 10,000 Treegate, 10,000 Copsgate, Subway to the Seagate and all the other gates he’s swinging on.

    Sorry Bruno you cute doggie but there’s already enough DOGS in the Mayor’s office and city hall. What happen to Matt “girlie” Szabo? He’s been quiet for some time. This job salary would be in the high end of $85K – $100K depending on experience. The City is in financial ruin and this asshole Failure of a Mayor who already has 206 staffers, 16 Deputy Mayors making way over $125,000 and he’s has the audacity to continue hiring for his own ego. We need to get on Steve Cooley or the reporters who read this blog go ask why the hell he hasn’t come out with the results of that Ticketgate investigation. They give $52 million to Eli Broad, sell our parking structures, give AEG a free pass to build stadium, hide over $800 million CRA money from Gov. Brown. When are the FEDS and State Controller Chiang going to get them???

    Corruption at its worse. What is it going to take to get the FEDS to Los Angeles and go after these corrupt politicians? Its not as if the media is hiding their bullshit. Its in plain view and yet nothing. Do we contact Kamala Harris even though many of the corrupt politicians were campaigning for her?
    Producer, stadium developers donate to group backing Villaraigosa’s school board candidates
    Stephen Bing and Anschutz Corp., whose sister firm wants to build a football stadium in downtown L.A., join familiar names in the fundraising wars over school reform.

    Don’t forget that the Feds from Frisco were called in to investigate a certain City Attorney because the Feds in L.A….???….

    I heard that Mirthala might be available for this New Media job. And she would be sooooo good, too.

    It seems all those phone call and emails to State Controller John Chiang paid off. Now if we can get him to AUDIT LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL AND THE MAYOR we will all be better off.

    The Mayor’s new media position is not related to any city business; it is solely to promote himself and continue his personal campaign for a higher government/political job.. where he can continue his con game. The use of City of LA taxpayer funds for this friviously expense is outrageous.

  15. Sylvester says:

    Step aside you cantankerous canines and allow a feline with finesse to apply. At least I know to cover my messes with a little litter.
    And those new media tools? ‘Just a little sharpening of my claws and I’ll show you ways of communicating you never imagined.

  16. Walter Moore says:

    Thank God that, while the City doesn’t quite have enough money for librarians and firefighters, there’s still plenty to add yet another sycophant to the Mayor’s perpetually expanding staff.
