I am not surprise to hear about Mr. Rea failing to report contributions because he was a corrupt and selfish politician. Most of his campaign money possibly came from corrupt individuals that will get city contracts in return. Just the way Mr. Richards did business with his friends and family. He learned from the "masters". I just wonder how he managed to get a new house that suppose to be for low imcome families. He possibly helped the developer to obtain the city finance project. I helped him get re-elected during the campaign of Rea, Reyes and Sanchez. But as soon as he took over, he forgot about the community and city employees he suppose to represent and that helped him get re-elected. He immediately started working on projects that will benefit him and not the community. He wanted everything for himself that is why Mr. Sanchez started working with the other two African American council man's to regain control and they shared the power. Mr. Rea, stop running for office because you will never get elected ever again. You do not have the support of the Latino community because you turn you back on you own community.

Sylvia Herron is all over the community causing problems.She helped to break up the organization of AARP and nearly caused the Senior Advisory Board to dismantle due to her antics. She is a "troublemaker" every where she goes and now she calls herself a commissioner. If the City Council let people like this represent them...no wonder our city is in trouble.She is always investigating someone, harrassing people...she needs to stay at home and feed her many cats.

Armando, so now you're operating as Rea Consultants. That was expected of you. What dirty deals are you hiding behind this? Is REA CONSULTING the same as Richards' ALLIED GOVERNMENT SERVICES? Is this how you're getting rich, just like Richards and his family, and Albert Robles and his family? Look at page 3 of the document below, and you'll find Rea as "Rea Consultants for American Remedial Technologies." We need to start looking very closely at the consultants we have in the City.

I just checked the link and it's true, Rea Consultants is working with American Remedial Technologies. It also says that American Remedial Technologies were polluting the soil in Seminole Ave here in Lynwood, and also they didn't develop a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan for their other place on Imperial Hwy. What does Rea know about soil pollution if he worked as a deputy and he apperently didn't do a good job as that either?

Very interesting piece of information because Leticia Vazquez received campaign contributions from American Remedial Technologies according to campaign papers filed by Mrs. Vazquez. Could it be possible that we are seeing a repetition of Richard's way of doing business in which council members ask companies to hire relatives or friends as consultants in exchange for City contracts. In this case, Armando Rea owns "Rea Consultants" which is employed by American Remedial Technologies located in the City of Lynwood, according to the link provided by the above post. Where did Mr. Rea obtain his knowledge to deal with contaminated soil treatment which are some of the services this company provides according to the company's profile. Mr. Rea's previous employment was working as a deputy. Could it be possible that Mrs. Vazquez or any other council member helped Rea get this job?. We, the residents of Lynwood need to investigate if this company has current or previous contracts with the City and who approved them. Only if Andrea, the City clerk decides to provide the information to the Lynwood residents that she suppose to represent.

THE ONLY THING REA KNOWS ABOUT SOIL IS WHEN HE BIT THE DUST AFTER WHEN HE WAS THROWN OUT OF THE POLICE

I would be very careful in trusting Rea, Dale Jones trusted him and Reyes, and Jones was fined by the FPPC. Follow this link:

http://www.fppc.ca.gov/Agendas/06-04/01-592Exh.pdf

Rea assured Jones that he knew about campaing finances, when he in fact didn't. He got poor Jones in trouble with the FPPC. It tells you what type of person Rea is, even without knowing, he'll assure you he does, and the results speak for themselves. It's obvious that he's a habitual lier. We're lucky he is not in office, we don't need people like that.

I look and look at Rea's picture, and then at Pedroza's , that perverted, corrupted look in their eyes, and that dirty smile is identical!

By the way, isn't Sylvia Herron, Armando Rea's mother-in-law. If this is true, that goes to show you the connection between our beloved corrupt politicians. Just because Armando Rea is not a councilman anymore, that does not mean that he still cannot pull strings and have his way with city practices.

I cannot believe, this big dummy believed that he could actually fool the community into voting him to be our City Treasurer in the last election. Thank GOD, that didn't happen, I can just imagine what our city would be going through if he would have won.....perhaps, Lynwood would be in the same situation as the City of South Gate, that is, on the verge of going bankrupt.

What you need to do is leave the City of Lynwood and take your [Offensive word removed] [word removed by Lynwood Watch]with you. Or what, don't tell me your planning to train him to be like you and then make him run to be a councilman.

It doesn't have anything to do with anything, there are remarkable examples, like Gov. James E. McGreevey.

The juice is loose and hell is breaking loose. Man this is really getting good. It sure feels good to know that the community is finally uniting to fight these corrupt politicians. One by one, they will fall if they are corrupt--Paul Richards and SOON FERNANDO PEDROZA, LOUIS BYRD, ANDREA HOOPER, AND IF WE'RE LUCKY LETICIA VAZQUEZ.....But hey, their running scared, now they know what it feels like to be breathing down their necks. So they better shape up and do whats best for the community and not for themselves. Just remember WE have an eye on YOU!!!!! GOOD JOB LYNWOOD WATCH

Well, there are some exceptions, like Lynwood's infamous Eric Lee. I'm referring to the comment above about the governor.

I THINK HE'S PROBABLY TOO BUSY TRYING TO CONVERT HIS SON TO BECOME A MAN, OR AT LEAST, TELLING HIM TO ACT LIKE A MAN WHEN HE'S AROUND PEOPLE.

MAN, THIS BLOGG REALLY WORKS. HAS ANYONE NOTICED THAT THIS MORON DOES NOT COME AROUND ANYMORE. WHAT A LOSER!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

So, Mando, the recall? or was it just talk? (if we want it so much why don't we start one?) Well, that's because you made sure everyone knew you had it ready, and we want to see if you stand up to your word, even though we know you haven't many times in the past. There's a bet out there that you're just talk, don't make me loose mando, show me that you're just talk so I can get a couple of extra bucks in my pocket. Or what, are you afraid of Leticia and her campaign manager (gonzo the tick Gonzales) picketing outside your house handing little ribbons against you? And maybe is true that rumor that Leticia is getting ready to expose why you were discharged from the Sheriff and you're afraid.

Basically Armando is a quezadilla her wishes he was white. But with that cara de nopal no one in any other city would elect him into office only here in Lynwood. As far as his kid, hey he has no control of his sons tendencies. He surely didn't get it from his Dad cause we all know that Armando tries to be a player...... with his big red truck. Poor Armando you gotta hand it to him he is trying to get himself back into office and assure himself a steady pay check cause who knows what happened with the Sherrif's Department job.

What is the billboard issue and political debate in Lynwood? Please tell me the basics.

Its funny that you hear and say the things you say. You have no idea what goes on with yourself or your city. Everything that you supossedly know is all in Theory! Its funny to see that you people post anonymously. Cowards are what I call you people! Or Left Wing Liberals! And so what if Sylvia Herron is supossedly causing trouble; but is she really? Or she actually doing something right that none of you have ever done in a very long time. This place is corrupt w/ dirty mexicans and snobby black people! And as far as African and Mexican American. Your identifying your race before your nationality! You are an AMERICAN! Latino community my ass! It is you the type of person who wants somone to speak SPANISH! Do you not! These council man have no knowledge or any history of an educational background. So I would actually re-think your theory and assumptions and try to make this city better. Instead of complaining. And as far as turning backs! The only back that was ever turned on was you. Mr. Rea has done so much for the city. What else are you asking for? Maybe you should actually consider thinking outside the box instead of oberving in it.
