Why again a "jogging trail" at Mulholland Fountain?

Blogger Petra called it back in February.  Spending DWP money on a very small jogging path LaBonge claimed was for the seniors across the street made no sense.

Jogging Path for Seniors:

LaBonge has some money, so he's gonna build that jogging path for the seniors even if they have to cross one of the busiest intersections in all of Los Angeles to get there. Even if there's more room on the other side of the street - where the senior citizen's center is actually located - for a bigger, better path. He's throwing in some native plants to appease greenies, too.

Whipping that crystal ball out again, we're thinking Avon's Walk for Breast Cancer is probably the real target user group. The Mulholland Fountain makes for mighty nice high profile photo ops. --

And from today's LaBonge CD 4 Newsletter, the confirmation:
- The Relay for Life Griffith Park Community, which is chaired by Mrs. LaBonge, is looking for volunteers to work short shifts at the event on Saturday, June 5 - Sunday, June 6. The Relay for Life Griffith Park Community will be held at the Mulholland Fountain, at Los Feliz Boulevard and Riverside Drive

As Mulholland Terrace said, "It's Labonge's park. We just watch him - and the missus -  play with it."
