Hopefully justice will reign and he pays for all the corruption toward us the citizens of Lynwood!!!

I agree!!!! However I'm begining to question the integrity of this website. The articles selected show a bias toward identifiable political adversaries. So... I ask the webmasters... Do you really want to impact change in Lynwood, or suit your own politcal agenda?

I think so too. If there are council members behind this blog, just come clean.

Lynwoodwatch is not an impartial reporter. They are selective in their stories of certain elected official they "watch" here. I can only think of one word to define the content of this website: PROPAGANDA.

It would be advisable for the writer of the articles to use a spell and grammar checker. It would increase your credibility. Also please don't erase blog comments you don't agree with, that's called censorship.

Speaking of councilmembers behind this blog . . . why haven't you said anything about councilmember Vasquez (the "teacher"), who claims she's educated. . . about what happened a week ago today???

I learned that she was getting her roof repaired (Walnut- between Bullis & Ernestine) without a permit and code enforcement had to stop the workers.

Is it her or her mother?

Beware,,,Very soon the individuals who are behind this website will be revealed. Stay tuned!!!!!
Never underestimate residents, we too have connections in very high places.

What does being educated have to do with roof repair???

Dude... Get a clue... Hating on Leticia does not reform anything.

Life for us in Lynwood is not better, I thought this website would help, but everyone is bitching and no one is proposing solutions...

to the person who wrote the comments defending leticia vazquez,she needs to demonstrate by examples, she has to obey city codes and regulations just like ANY OTHER CITIZEN IN LYNWOOD!! SHE'S NOT ABOVE THE LAW!! THE COMPTON MENTALITY OF RUNNING THINGS IN THIS CITY ARE WAY GONE!!!!
DOES SHE WANT TO JOIN RICHARD IN FEDERAL JAIL???

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!! DON'T LET THEM INTIMIDATE YOUR HARD WORK .....KEEP INFORMING US , THE CITIZENS ABOUT PERFORMANCE, OR LACK OF PERFORMANCE OF SOME COUNCIL MEMBERS.......... PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE HAVE COUNCILMEMBERS THAT PREACH BY EXAMPLE AND OTHERS WHO HAVE LONG TAILS OF INCOMPENTENCE, LYING, INEPTNESS AND COULCILMEMBERS WHO WILL DO ANYTHING TO ENLARGE THEIR POCKETS!

Hey... That's some big words you threw in there. Congratulations!!! You must be EDUCATED!

I give you props... you raised a good point. Lynwoodwatch, what are the council salaries. How much were they fattened by work on useless commissions?? I want to know so that I can join my fellow bloggers in being EDUCATED.

It is good that people are being brought to justices, but Mr Richards is not the only one, we the people of Lynwood have been cheated for so long that some people only see what they want to see, take your glasses off. Why is it that every thing wrong in Lynwood has to do with Mr.Byrd and Ms. Vasquez I don't see a halo on Mr. Rodriguez and Ms. Santllian or Pedroza. Maybe we need a new council with experience. STOP GIVING JOBS TO FRIENDS and FAMILY!! and that means all of you. what does the council do all day that they don't see what the residents see.

If Leticia can't follow CITY CODES, how can we she set an example?

What happened to the "proclaimed" teacher?

WHAT HAPPENED TO INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBLITY? You must be a presumed good citizen.

Is it "due to safety" that you write so bad?

Will you also be involved in removing corrupt Councilmembers this November? (Santillan, Rodriguez and Pedroza)

PEDROZA NEES TO GET OUT.... TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT SANTILLAN AND RODRIUGEZ AND WE WILL SEE.

You aren't the shot caller...

Yes he/she is, according to them. Last nights campaign kick-off said it all. Rodriguez and Santillan will get re-elected. The whole crew was there... Colin-Salas, Tila Aguilar, Lucy the caterer, Joaqiun Mesinas, Martina Rodriguez, Jose Solache and the rest of the gang. This will be fun to watch, they talked alot about Richards, lets hope they don't get indicted and have to eat their words.

You got the names wrong, You also forgot to mention Maria Lopez & family, many developers, many city employees, the African American caucus & the Mexican federations . . . just to name a few.

The parking lot was so full, that we had to park at the hardware store.

Richards was never mentioned by any of the candidates. They don't have to worry about him, he'll soon be put away . . Other names did come up, but if you missed it, oh well keep guessing.

It was a great event!

You are such a liar, hardly anyone showed up, and you know it.

Bola de mentirosos i ipocritas. Igual que el Pedroza.

Mis estimados amigos, yo no escribo ingles y es por eso que yo me dirijo a usteds en espanol. le pedi a mis hijos que me lo interpretaran y me dio muchas ganas de escribir y dar mi opinion. Probalemente tampoco escribo muy bien el espanol , pero lo intentare y tambien tratare de dar mi opinion.

Yo tengo 40 a?os viviendo en Lynwood. Soy mexicana a mucha honra y tengo 4 hijos que fueron a todas las escuelas de esta ciudad.

Amo a Lynwood y me interesa todo lo que pasa en esta ciudad.

yo no soy activista pero les asguro que cuando pude me hice ciudadana al igual que mi esposo ,nos registro una senora que nunca olvidare como nos hablo y nos dijo lo importante que era involucranos en el govierno local. Ella me ivito muchas veces a juntas y nunca me intereso. Pero ella lo unico que me pido y me gusto mucho como me lo dijo.

Senora no importa por quien vota pero vote. vote por quien usted pinese que va ha trabajar por el bien de toda la comunidad. Asi lo he hecho por casi 14 a?os.


mis hijos todos votan al igual que mi familia y mi esposo tambien mis amistades.

hoy soy lider entre mis amistades.

nos hemos equivocado muchas veces primero con Paul.. ese hombre tan guapo y delicado para hablar nos doraba la pildora como se dice . Yo en ese entonces yo entendia menos igles y aun asi le creia.

cuando los 3 amigos, igual todos creiamos que seria el cambio. y ya ven lo que paso con Ricardo Sanchez. y no se diga de ARmando rea que les dava mis vesinos boletos para juegos y demas. Despues de que salia electo ni se acordaba de quien erea quien. Y despues llego el RAul a levantar todos lo carros sin costo , para los que le apoyaran a fernando y cartaban la yarda de todos lo ancianitos. Para que ??? simpre me lo pregunte sin querer responderme por que la verdad era negra. votamos por fernando y ya vieron lo que paso lo peor que le ha pasado a nuestra ciudad.

mis hijos fueron con mark y algunos con fernando a la escuela . yo se que mark es un buen muchacho y su familia muy respetable. yo simpre dije Fernando no pude ser mal ser humano por que sus padres son muy buenas personas. pero ya ven que nos equivocamos.

Yo estoy casi segura que Mark nunca nos saldra como Fernando.

a mi me cae muy bien Ramon Rodriguez y Maria Santillan. Yo les pido que por favor sean claros y que cuando digan que son corruptos den pruebas y digan por que. que no solo acusen por acusar o por que ustedes son los otros candidatos o los que apoyen a el oponente. Hablen con pruebas. Asi como todo lo que ha salido Cuando estaban tratando de sacar a Sanchez la gente que camino las calles tenian pruebas, papeles que hablaban . Que en realidad Sanchez fue capillita Fernando y RAul son la catedral.

Yo siempre sigo los consejos que una mujer me dejo. VOTE POR QUIEN USTED QUIERA PERO VOTE HAGA SU VOZ VALER. Mis respetos a Maggie Godoy

AHORA ESTOY LISTA PARA INVOLUCRARME POR FAVOR PONGAN EN ESTA PAGINA LOS EVENTO Y DEBATES. POR VENIR. SE LOS AGRADECERE MUCHO.

Por favor no nos peiemos nadie es mejor que nadie todos somos humanos con defector y virtudes respetemonos y sigamos adelante fijence la ciudad no esta tan mal.. hemos progresado veamos lo positivo, y no lo negativo. Recuerden no seamos que muchas veces tenemos lo que nos merecemos. y solo somos nosotros lo que lo podemos cambiar.
disculpen la molestia. Mi intencion no es incomodar a nadie solo quiero dar mi opinion. atentamente .
