Event at Lynwood's Youth Center Suggests Campaign Kick Off for Councilman Pedroza

Lynwood, CA - Supporters of councilmember Fernando Pedroza, presumably United Families of Lynwood, hosted a Mother's day dinner at the City's Youth Center on Friday May 6, 2005. The event suggest the campaign kick-off for councilman Pedroza. Fernando Pedroza, Ramon Rodriguez, and Maria Santillan, must seek re election in the November 2005 City election.

"Presumably a campaign kickoff"? Where do you guys get this nonsense? I am a lynwood mother who has attended this mothers day event for 6 years in a row. For you slow people out there...that means that it started BEFORE Pedroza was elected!

This is a great annual mothers day event. And if you are mad that you werent invited, it was for M.O.T.H.E.R.S not Mother F'ers. So sorry you couldnt come.

How can this site, that claims to be unbiased and "just reporting the facts" say some BS like "campaign kick-off"? THAT SOUNDS BIASED TO ME!

Para EDNA ya veo que no tienes educasion ya empesastes a insultar,Pero no me voy abajar a tu nivel,Si es campana o no es campana eso me viene menos lo que no entiendo es que,o es o se hace,Fernando tiene mucha cola que le pisen,pero de eso nos vamos ha encargar de distribuir todas sus fechorias para que los votantes no hagan el mismo error,el pueblo se puede equivocar una vez,pero no dos veces.

I'm glad i was'nt the only person that saw through the invition. Don't worry you will be seeing more as time goes by, not just by pedroza but by rodriguez and satillian. it started with the senior center ground breaking.

Did you not read the card that said committee to elect pedroza.
I think you can't send anything out till the office bacomes open, check county office.

Yes it's an election year and the campaign season will soon begin. However, I saw the card in the card reads, "committee to re-elect Fernando Pedroza". I don't think there is such a committee.

I'm not sure if my wife received a "mother's day card" the last 3 years from Fernie, that's the part that I find insulting to the mothers. ONLY WHEN IT'S TIME FOR THEIR VOTE WHEN HE SEEKS THE MOTHERS.

The number for the FPPC is 1-866-275-3772. Let's call and find out if someone can start campaigning before they are actually a candidate. I'm talking specifically about the committee to re-elect Fernando Pedroza. Now, if he's already sending out post cards, then all other candidates should start too. Wasn't there an issue last election periods when Leticia started fundraising before she was formally a candidate? I can't remember the details though.
If you decide to call, call the FPPC, don't forget Andrea Hooper is lost when it comes to campaing law, don't forget she was fined.

The FPPC fines everyone. Sometimes its innocent mistakes. Not that we shouldn't be vigilant though.

Hmmm... Maybe he's not running for re-election to city council...

I checked the link you provide, and nothing, the committee to re elect Fernando Pedroza is not available. And you bring up a good point. Why is Fernando running?

It seems to me that he is a denial state. This shows that he believes he's clean. Is this mean that the DA has nothing on this guy? I don't understand why Pedroza is starting to campaign so early if he'll be arrested before the election. He really believes he'll be reelected from what I can see.
About United Families of Lynwood, I thought they were a nonprofit (Well, for the profit of Raul Varela, but that's a different story), and that nonprofits cannot support a political candidate, even if he comes from within their ranks. You know what's funny, we know them as United Families of Lynwood, but they are registered with the secretary of state as UNITED FAMILY OF LYNWOOD.
Man, does that name hold so much truth to it!@!!! They are one united corrupt family, and as such, they go down United! (hopefully, I'm having doubts about the DA coming to the City).

Anyway, Pedroza should be traveling in Mexico now (hanging out with his detalle), we'll have to wait and see what Hooper does, or what she has to say about this early campaigning. I'm sure she'll say it's alright. Have you guys noticed that all of us here in Lynwood are becoming psychics? We all seem to know damn well what will happen!!!! May be not, may be we've just learned all the dirty tricks they've fooled us with all this years...

Maria Santillan was also present to support Pedroza's re-election. Sounds like the "Truth Squad" is Back!

Lo que si me preocupa es que Santillan y Rodiguez esten haciendo cosas que no son buenas.

The council did NOT give Santiago's daughter the scholarship. It was Shawn Powell the sports embassador, one of the 3 consultants hired by Fernando Pedroza.

Pat Shields - her contract was cancelled a few months back. She got very upset when council began to ask questions about her job performance. So upset, she shot her own foot!

Here it is June and I still cannot get over the Mothers day event we were "invited" to. I was told that the event was for Alma Latina's Mothers, a special event sponsored by Charles Company. So, I show up with my children and the only reason I could see that we were invited was to have our students perform for a bunch of politicians. Well, from now on I will be sure to request more info on any event we get "invited" to.

I agree with the above comment 100%, I was invited and was mislead. I walked in and realized what was happening.

The girls from Alma Latina, should not be USED in this fashion.

Shame on you Pedroza.

I'm very sorry to see that many of you have a very low oppinion of Alma Latina. Alma Latina was not created for a political purpose. It was created to give the children of Lynwood and its surrounding cities a place where they can feel welcome, teach them pride, allow them to grow and to learn various styles of cultural and international forms of dance. Alma Latina is proud to represent its city, its leaders and its citizens alike which is why we adopted "de Lynwood" in our name.
Alma Latina de Lynwood does not favor any form of politics. Our main concern is for our students and we will work with the city's representatives to achieve our goals.
Alma Latina de Lynwood is lead by five Directors working together to move the group forward and is not manipulated by any one individual like some might seem to think.
As to the mothers day dinner, the students who participated in the dance were more than happy to perform because in their eyes they weren't dancing for a cause or a political candidate, they were dancing for their moms and they did their best like they always do, their reward was a hug and a kiss from the ones that they love best.
I understand that there are a few parents within the group that have very strong political views and/or have political interests within the city, but I request that you please do not use Alma Latina and its students as fodder or as political ammunition in any form of the word.
Alma Latina de Lynwood will continue to give the best it can to the city and I hope that we have all of your support.
Sincerely and Respectfully,
Julio Gonzalez
Assistant Director
Alma Latina de Lynwood

Julio Gonzalez said...

It does not surprise me in the vulgarity and the way someone might lower themselves to in response to true and honest facts. The comment of "coma caca" is the same as saying "your mama" when someone can’t find a better or intelligent way to respond. The fact that no name was used in the comment means that this person wants to remain anonymous. If a problem or concern does exist, we encourage the parents and students of Alma Latina alike to approach us at their convenience. We are more than glad to listen and help in any way possible to better the organization we serve.
Sincerely,
Julio Gonzalez

Julio,
You are right. Let them act childish if they want to. We know Alma Latina will continue to prosper for the students who continue to give their 110%. If someone is so ignorant to not reveal who they are when blogging, just leave it at that.

Si, eso es, muy maduro para una madre de familia que dice que quiere lo mejor para sus hijas. Ni si quiera te acuerdas de que esto es una democracia, se supone que tuvieron que votar para poner esas personas en las posiciones que tienen. Y ahora, para que te qejas. Si estabas tan envolucrado, como parece sabes mucho del grupo, por que no votar para sacar los???

No se te entiende nada que quieres decir. Democracia?????? do you really know what that means??


para los ultimos cometarios..

Alegria Mexicana no tiene nada que ver en este rollo ellos ya son arina de otra costal , cuando se mension fue sobre Julio y la vieja de el que fue cuando llegaron al grupo. Muchos padres no estan de acuerdo con ellos y mucho menos contentos no hablan por presisamente el talento de las niñas y lo bien que lo hacen. Lo cual no se deve a JULIO o a la Vieja panzona.. si no al gran talento de los maestros.
Queremos una Junata y queremos hablar sobre lo inconforme que estamos con ellos . si deveras quiern que estemso contentos renuncien al puesto y saquen al Alex Landero solo esta quemando al Groupo que lo unico que quieren es aprender y bailar.
