Actually I would prefer to use the initials of BB instead of "W"itch. Yes, indeed this woman is destroying LA Animal Services and all the while the Mayor is more interested in gaining the gay vote than in animal services.
Two animal control commissioners have resigned lately, both closely connected to Barnette. One was voting on issues of reducing fines on unlicensed dogs and all the while, this broad was breaking the law herself with unlicensed dogs. The other, well, she probably resigned to take over the ADL-LA with her extremely close association with it.
All the senior officers with all their experience was put on administrative leave and from the looks of it, it was not warranted. This article is a long read, but extremely well researched and documented. When you finished reading, call the Mayor's office and demand that Barnette be given her walking papers.
Thanks to Phyllis Daugherty for her never ending crusade for the LA animals. And I encourage everyone to contact the Mayor to end this reign of terror. Mark.Szabo@lacity.org, the Mayor's assistant, would love to hear from you.
