Itzhack Feldman claims he would like to Uberize Hollywood’s city government.
Feldman is a cable television producer by profession as well as an Uber driver. He believes strongly in the Uber rating system for drivers and passengers and would like to see the rating approach applied to Hollywood City employees. The employees would be rated by the residents with whom they come into contact.
“If a city employee ratings fall below a certain level, they would receive counseling. If they don’t improve, they would be fired,” said Feldman. “With my involvement with Uber I saw how much power we can have over the government. When we don’t like something, we the people have the power to change it.”
Critical of city government, Feldman said that he has received a warning from the city attorney’s office to stay away from government buildings. In the warning Feldman received, he was told that city employees feel threatened by him.
Feldman reports that on visits to Hollywood government buildings and offices, he has witnessed city employees doing very little work and spending more time socializing or talking on their cell phones. He also believes that too many city employees live outside the city and are unwilling to stay after work to help residents, especially those who want to use recreational facilities after 5 p.m.
“I want to learn as much as I can about Hollywood and the city is blocking me from doing so under a threat,” said Feldman. “They want me stop entering government buildings.”
A Hollywood resident for nearly 25 years, Feldman raised his two children in the city. He was born and raised in Israel served in the Israeli Navy.
