Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa brought Los Angeles to the brink of bankruptcy, as warned another former mayor, Richard Riordan. The next recession still could see L.A. go BK. Also on Villaraigosa’s watch, the city’s schools continued to underperform, and its roads continued to crumble, as seen — and felt — by any ride through the city.
Without a job, and apparently not getting one from the embattled Obama administration, he just got hired by USC to be “a professor of practice.” Having been mayor for eight years, one would think he wouldn’t need any more practice.
He also “will be a principal in the newly formed USC Villaraigosa Initiative for Restoring the California Dream, designed to focus on governance, public-private partnerships and social innovation. He’ll also lecture to graduate and undergraduate classes on public-sector management,” according to the Daily News.
It’s a bafflement how someone who helped destroy the California Dream will be able to help restore it.
This is the second political coup for USC. Last year it nabbed the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy, thanks to hefty donations from Der Terminator (of California prosperity).
The USC Villaraigosa Initiative for Restoring the California Dream and the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy should join together for a symposium, “Tony and Arnold’s Excellent Adventure Destroying L.A. and CA.”
