Taco Battle Continues ~ East LA


Gloria Molina, Deputy DA Steven Gates and their anti-taco supporters plan to make the taco truck ban a central component of the County Board of Supervisors fall term. The AP reports:

"All there is to say right now is that we have filed a motion for reconsideration, requesting that the court reconsider its previous ruling," said Deputy District Attorney Steven Gates. He declined to discuss the basis of Monday's appeal but said the county requested a hearing Sept. 19."We will definitely oppose," said attorney Philip C. Greenwald, who represents the taco truck drivers.

As we told you last month, the battle has been won but the war is on and getting hotter then ever. Taco lifestylers must be ready to defend the Taqueros of East LA and other unincorporated areas of the city at a moment's notice. We know we can count on the readers of LA TACO to do the right thing and oppose Molina and her minions. Fight on!
