Hats off to Jacque Robinson, who instead of employing cronyism to distribute her allotment of Rose Bowl and Rose Parade tickets, held a raffle at a District 1 community meeting yesterday.
Those of us who weren’t able to attend the meeting had the opportunity to mail in our raffle entries. Jacque herself called to tell me that I won Rose Bowl tickets. Or more precisely, I won the opportunity to buy Rose Bowl tickets at face value.
Which I will do. So USC fans, prepare to be milked.

Umm…I don’t think that’s what she had in mind…but good for you!
Steve Haderlein always raffles off Rose Bowl & Parade tickets. Not a new idea here.
At the previous district 1 meeting she didn’t raffle the tickets, she walked through the assembled and gave them out to those she deemed worthy. This included a non resident of our fair district she happened to “know”. I am glad the process is now more transparent and I am very pleased for you. Congratulations! I am even happier to hear that sub -lieutenant Ogilvy didn’t win squat.
Now I’m wondering what other city council members are doing this year.
I am so sorry it has been a while since my last comment. I will be returning to do so more properly shortly. I ask you for a huge favor. I have received a most touching and heart breaking comment on my site. From a 14 year old who’s father is dying of brain cancer. I was so touched I published her short comment as a post. I am asking please for prayers but also short comments be left on my site. I will be emailing her and inviting her to return to what I hope will be a page of love and support for her. I do thank you so much
Ms. Robinson in District 1 is handling out the parade tickets and selling the game tickets to those who helped her lucky attempt to win her council seat. I too was at the district meeting and she was the queen of the ball. I hope that she appreciates the fact that she was lucky to win. If not for the racial & 50/50 coalition elements of the race she would have lost it to Henderson or Robin.
She won the election and I hope she does the best for our district.
