Very interesting article. The corrupt people the article mentions, are the exact same people that Leticia Vasquez continunes to defend. She needs to go.

This article was on the cover of the LA Times.

Councilwoman Vasquez has never defended any of the people mentioned, in fact she has fought against all people mentioned in the article. Can you provide proof of any times she has defended anyone of these people i.e. any meeting where she has spoken in favor or voted to support any of this foolishness. She has voted no on all these issues in fact that is why she is being recalled. WAKE UP LYNWOOD!

What about the memo she circulated sympathizing with Richards? Why did she vote to settle with SELAC on tuesday. Let me get this right. I am a developer, the city gives me money for a project, I go and spend it on something else, then I go to all 5 of the stupid council members and tell them I am sorry after they have my office manager on tape admitting that the monies were misused, then they vote 5 in favor to settle with me. I just stole money from the city of Lynwood with the help of the council. In Leticia's words, that is criminal. We should have prosecuted, and they chose not to. Aide puts out a hit piece telling us what they did, and we all look the other way. Something is wrong with this community if we can't see that our council is corrupt. They are making last minute deals and it is not to the benefit of this city. Research people. This why we need not to re elect any of the incumbents, and Leticia needs to be recalled just like her boy Richards.

You must be referring to "Muriel Estates". And for the record, the vote was 4 - 1 (Santillan being the only one that wanted to go after Lefrances Arnold)

And since we are in that subject, . . The following is a circle of friends
Lefrances Arnold
Rev. Hopkins
Alfreddie Johnson
all good friends with the soon to be GUILTY Paul Richards.

If what you just said is true. Then that also means Aide is also telling the truth. Maybe someone should tell Maria and Aide to talk. Aide is focused on Maria because of the SELAC project being given to Frontela Construction. If they join forces, maria can finally have someone to back her up. Maria is to afraid to stand up to the other council members. Aide has guts, and she is not afraid to stand up to people.

Castro
Santillan
Carr

Get rid of the men. Let's see what Leticia will do with 3 strong woman against her.

I'm not Patt. I am a long time Lynwood resident. ( Yes I'm Black )
I've been here long enough to know when two people are being turned against each other. Aide and Maria can be great together. Patt is better than Alfreddie any day.

Frontela Construction was apparently the lowest bidder for the "fire sprinkler" contract.

The SELAC building is all a mickey mouse job. These Pastors even forgot to install sprinklers.

All council was trying to do, was finish up the mess that Paul left them with.

I too, would like to see more women on council.
