Did Councilwoman Leticia Vasquez Lie About Being Born and Raised in Lynwood?

Lynwood, CA - Recent newspaper article published in the Compton Bulletin has raised the question of whether current councilwoman Leticia Vasquez was born and raised in Lynwood or in Compton. While highly debatable, recods show that she may have arrived in Lynwood at age 15.

It's obvious that Leticia Vasquez lied about her being a lifelong resident of Lynwood. It's obvious she lied when she said she was a "teacher".

She manipulated the minds and hearts of the voters by asking us to "Vote por la Maestra" (Vote for the Teacher)

Dishonest politicians like Leticia aren't made, they are natural born deceivers who will say and do anything to get elected and to maintain their power.

It's obvious Leticia's only concern is to live a good life at taxpayer's expense.

Either she is a "Lifelong resident of Lynwood" or she was "born and raised in Compton". One of her two previous statements is not true and by consequence she deserves to be called "una mentirosa" (a liar)

Let's hope Assemblymember Mervyn Dymaly becomes aware that he has employed a dishonest public servant unworthy of receiving a paycheck from us the California's tax payers.

¡He dicho!

We're going to have to just let him term out.

Just for the record, Dymally is an immigrant Caribbean Latino. :o)

Two out of three councilmembers have been hit hard behind this blog, Leticia and Fernando. Which goes to show that when you screw up, people don't forgive or forget!

If she's been residing in Lynwood for the last 15 years, why did she registered and voted in the city of Lakewood 4 years ago??

To the comment above about seeing Leticia on TV: Can you provide more details? Otherwise, it seems that you just want to throw garbage at Leticia, and even the people who oppose her don't like that. We want facts, not mere gossip.

I know Leticia Vasquez personally. We attended parochial school together since the 2nd grade. Leticia has not lied about being a teacher nor about her growing up in Lynwood. Leticia has always had the hearts and souls of her people as her main priority. You need to research your information before posting. She has always been a people person, whether you are black, white or Hispanic. Kriston Gordon-Cathey

Well Kriston, thanks for the info, but the post seems to be pretty credible, they are posting the article, and we've all read it. Now the comments people make are a different story. And I agree, people who make comments need to research their info. before they "post" their comments. I think the article speaks for itself.

Alright. There are a lot of comments from people who want to participate in the recall against Vasquez. Before any recall can be started we have to have a solid start. What will the recall say, that she's being recalled because she's a liar? I don't think that's solid, and I don't think it'll go anywhere. Because she discriminates against Mexicans? That's also very subjective in my opinion. "But don't get me wrong" (as she would say), her hatred for all things mesican will get us a good group of supporters.

What we need to do is determine exactly what it is that would make the recall succesful. Let's see here:

1. Has anyone looked into her committee 'families to re-elect Leticia Vasquez' to see who's contributing? We might find something here, we might not.

2. Has anyone looked into her new political job? Is she getting paid by both the city, and her new employer for going to the same meetings? I'm trying to say is, is she double dipping?

3. Has anyone reviewed credit card statements, bills, reinbursments etc? We may also find something there.

4. Have any of you information gurus determined with certainty what her relationship to Richards is?

I'm just brain storming, I think that's a lot better than just speculating with gossip. There have been many internet based petitions that have given very good results, and who knows, this might be one!

So why don't we get serious here, and start looking, they say that two heads think better than one, than I guess many eyes on the same subject will definetly find something.

So, how about it Lynwood Watch Bloggers?

I did not mentioned that Ms. Vazquez was seen at the Minuteman March!!! It's not gossip, I SAID Irene Garcia was at Minute Men March and that both are Anti-Latinos men haters...... READ THE CORRECT WAY BEFORE SPREADING OTHER INFORMATION!!

Anonymous said...

So, where are all the fervent recall proponents? There are still no brainstorm ideas to configure the recall. This won't go anywhere if we continue like this. We need to stop the gossip attack, and start getting serious. (or maybe that's the whole point, we haven't been serious, and the recall idea is just someone's dirty psych war against Vasquez)

Hey Recallers... Slow your roll!

You need a good candidate to replace Leticia. Taking her out of office, does not mean you fix anything for Lynwood. Last I checked, Lynwood was not a corruption free leadership factory. (This is why I'm over the Lakewood thing.)

You could end up opening the doors wide open for someone with real corruption issues.

I agree with the previous comments, we as a community need to begin a search for someone that will meet our needs.

Anonymous said...

Totallly agree, but we still need to look into the Lakewood issue with other candidates. Meaning, we need to keep an eye on all the candidates who are moving into Lynwood to run.

Yes, I am not the only one who saw Ms. Gar cia in KVEA channel 53 defending the MINUTEMAN!!
Yes, Irene Garcia wears that bandana with the American Flag and has that NOPALOTE Face. She's embarrased of her origin. She told my neighbor SPEAK ENGLISH YOU ARE IN AMERICA.
yES, SHE NEEDS TO LET GO THAT HATE FOR OUR PEOPLE AND BE GRATEFUL TO BE BILINGUAL, TO EAT DELICIOUS MEXICAN FOOD, TO BE PART OF A FAMILY ORIENTED COMMUNITY, TO BE PROUD OF OUR INDIGENOUS ORIGINS, AND BEING PART OF A RELIGIOUS, GOD BELIEVING COMMUNITY.

What about all the atheists? Don't discriminate!

Ok. One of the reasons for the recall is that Leticia Vasquez spent lots of money of travel and meetings. There are enough records that attest to that.

How about her voting and registering to vote in LAKEWOOD??

Anonymous said...

I'm thinking that registering to vote in Lynwood is a good one too. But first we have to determine exactly when she was registered to vote, and where she was living at the time. Hypothetically, she has stated that she's a lifelong resident of Lynwood. Correct me if I'm wrong, but lifelong would mean without interruption. It seems that this hypothesis is semantically true, but we need documentation to prove it. In other words, if Leticia was living in Lynwood (lifelong resident), and voted in Lakewood, that's a crime; if Leticia voted in Lakewoood, but lived in Los Angeles, that's a crime; if Leticia lived and voted in Lakewood, she is not a life long resident of Lynwood, therefore, she is lying.

Then,

Leticia Vasquez made and used misleading and/or false statements to be elected. I know this is tasteless, and shows she's a lier, but that lacks any significance, the point is whether this behavior can be prosecuted at all.

Now, did Leticia Vasquez' family vote in Lynwood for Leticia? (I'm sure they did, but I need to verify). If so, did they live here in Lynwood? Did they live in Lakewood? This means that we can find the same thing Rodriguez' family did, and therefore, there is potential criminal activity that can be prosectuted.

All you information gurus out there would have to determine if any of hypothesis are valid, or on the oher hand, they are not valid. If they are valid, we have another reason for the recall. If they are not valid, we can disregard them and move on to find something different.

I like the idea of challenging her with the location of residence when she voted in Lakewood and also you talented members of lynwood watch if you can investigate if her parents voted here in lynwood , maybe they can be prosecuted just like Rodriguez family.

Anonymous said...

I second that idea. If the family leaves in Lakewood, and voted here in Lynwood, the DA needs to know.
Now, does the family currently live in Lynwood? I believe that's another good point worth looking into. If they voted in Lynwood, they should live in Lynwood, unless of course, they came to vote in Lynwood, and went back to Lakewood.
How about finding out where they are registered to vote? Let's see if they registered in Lynwood just to vote for Leticia. I suggest that you people from the webstite get the court papers for Rodriguez' family, that's a good example that we can follow, and it'll save us lots of time. We don't have to reinvent the wheel.

It seems to me the real question is does Vazquez live in Lynwood now, and did she when she declared her candidacy.

If she grew up in Lynwood, went to college at CSULB, and during that time lived in Lynwood, then finished school and moved back to where her roots lay, Lynwood. Now I don't think that's such a bad thing. Maybe some of you will understand if you go to college someday.

Again, I just want to remind you she's not up this year, and unless you have a solid replacement in mind, it ain't worth the effort to recall.

OOPS! I meant lived in Lakeweeod while attending CSULB. :oP

Yeah, I agree with the comment above. But you know what else, I also agree with Leticia, she has always said that anyone who's done something wrong should be prosecuted. Therefore, she should be investigated, and prosecuted. It's not about being up for election, is about cleaning up City Hall. Don't forget she's also said that we need to rid the City of garbage. SHE IS ALSO GARBAGE, and as such, we must get rid of her. I'm sure she won't oppose to it, she won't contradict herself, we're just doing what she taught us to do. Maybe she is a teacher in a way, the funny thing is that she herself is teaching us how to get rid of her. She's shown no mercy for anyone, so I don't think she'll mind that we have no mercy for her.

That was very poetic, but this Leticia bashing is seriously getting old.

Basura are the talkers that don't put their money where their mouth is.
