Communities within Los Angeles City Councilman Rudy Svorinich's district, which includes Watts, will soon be host to an economic development corporation designed to attract new businesses--from small mom-and-pop stores to major corporations. The Los Angeles Harbor-Watts Economic Development Corp. is a public- and private-sector partnership established by Svorinich's office. City officials have spent the last year researching the corporation and have 60 business projects lined up for assistance.

John Papadakis' restaurant is a lot like its owner -- big, brash and loud. No dim lights, no quiet romantic evening here. On a typical night, the music builds and Papadakis breaks into a Greek dance with a waitress, a pair of belly dancers wriggle through the aisles as the owner tosses dollar bills at them, an 88-year-old tuxedo-clad violinist who played with Frank Sinatra strolls through the restaurant. Plates break, a dish of saganaki is set on fire. A tap dancer in a baggy suit stomps in front of a self-portrait of Anthony Quinn as Zorba the Greek.

But since July 2001, the council members have transferred more than 40% of those community improvement funds into their office salary accounts, according to city records.
