City Council Unanimously Votes to Approve Chabad Development

After Koretz announced his support, a quick vote approved the project.

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to approve the Chabad House development at Chandler Blvd. and Ethel Street in Sherman Oaks.

The approximately 70 members of Chabad in attendance burst into cheers when their victory was announced.

After Councilman Paul Koretz spoke in favor of the project moving forward, the entire council quickly voted in favor of Chabad, with no votes against.

Which of the 5 parking spaces will have a sign that reads "Reserved for Paul Koretz?"

What Faustian deal did Chabad make with him for his support on this, besides the parking space? ?

Now the Chabad opposition can move on to protesting Ralphs on Hazeltine. Rumor has it once the new store is completed shopping carts will end up on Ethel.

Did anyone think for a second that Koretz would have sufficient integrity and enough of a backbone to stand up to the Chabad House special interest group and be an advocate for (or at least represent) those in the neighborhood that he was elected to serve that are opposed to the development? Newsflash: in the eyes of the politicians the regular folks are irrelevant nuisances who are to be manipulated or ignored as they see fit. Only those who have some form of power, real or perceived, will receive the attention.
