Former US President Clinton Visits L.A. On President's Day

Former US President Bill Clinton visited L.A. today and held a joint press conference with L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa to introduce the Green street light program. The program will replace 
140, 000 older street lamp bulbs with new hi-tech LED bulbs which will cut down yearly operating cost by 10 million dollars, and CO2 emissions by 40,500 tons yearly.

In attendance at the press conference was former Miss Arkansas Tamara Henry who now is a TV host and producer here in Los Angeles.

Also was told to "keep my questions substantive" by a Villaraigosa assistant press flack after catching them in a lie. No questions were taken by either Villaraigosa or Clinton during the press conference which was held in the L.A. City Hall Rotunda.
