Letter to Mayor Eric Garcetti

Government IncompetenceOpen QuoteI voted for you because I thought you were handsome, despite the fact that my phone call to your candidate office remain unreturned.

Yesterday I found out from a third party that my Medi-Cal benefits have been inactivated. Today my oncologist (a cancer doctor) has called with the same information…three times!

I am totally disgusted with you and the city of Los Angeles. I had an issue last year which required me getting in touch with Hilda Solis office to get my cal-fresh benefits reinstated. Thank god she has professionals working for her because she has never bothered, as well, to answer any of my phone calls or correspondence. I am on the phone right now with a superb, professional Nune Petrosyan (this lady deserves a raise) in Hilda’s office who is doing more for me in 19 minutes than you or Hilda have ever done for me.

Secondly, I have no water today because of an interruption in service, of which I NEVER received notice. Unfortunately, I am sick with diarrhea today and can only use the toilet one today until the water comes back on. Thankfully, I have no appetite. It really galls me that we pay for service and the providers of the service have no consideration for the public to even bother issue a service disruption notice.

Did I mention that Medi-Cal deactivated my benefits without any notice!? What the fuck? I am a diabetic that has been under the care of an endocrinologist to get my blood sugars under control so I can proceed with much needed oral surgery that I have been trying to get done for two years with the shitty insurance I have. Now without insulin, my blood sugars will go out of control again and I will have to postpone the oral surgery even further out. Let’s not even mention the fact that oral surgeons only work one day a month!

When I was a kid, I believed in government and did the right thing, as I was told. Nowadays, I detest our government: state, local and federal, finding them all self-serving and corrupt. Here is an opportunity for you to prove me wrong.

Disgustedly yours,
