I'm beginning to think that Beltran & Medina have something to do with this "hit" piece. I know that Leal and Beltran can't work together, so perhaps Beltran is now afraid of Leal.

Interesting but it's all politics.

It doesn't matter who did it. What matters is that the truth has been exposed. Maria, Ramon, and Mark are no good for the city.

Maria can't make her own decisions. She always needs to ask permission from Ramon. She has no idea what she is talking about half the time, and she is arrogant. She wants to act like she cares for Lynwood yet she hasn't done shit. Jim Morton came close to beaten her during the recall. Now that's scary. Then she wants to act like an innocent battered wife and she keeps the ex's last name. What kind of shit is that? What about the contract to Arsenio Frontela? How does she explain that? Let me guess she deserves it because she is poor little Maria. Please same your drama for someone who cares. Her own kids have no respect for her.

Ramon pretends to be humble. But the truth is he is an arrogant prick. He has been told several times he can't legally do business with the city or the school district and continues to ignore the law. Why does he think he gets a special brake. I don't care if he had prior contracts. When he became a council member he needed to stop. What can we expect from a man who doesn't even care if he gets is wife into legal problems. Where is your heart? Oh I forgot you don't care about your wife. You have Maria and Nenita to take care of you. How's your baby with Nena doing by the way? Let's not forget about his family members he through under the bus. Ramon did nothing to try and help them. His family gets areested for voter fraud to help Ramon get elected and he does nothing to help them. Why? Because he is selfish!!!!!!!!!

Mark you blew it. You should have ran on your own. You probably would have won. What a disappointment you are. Your lack of leadership skills have definately been exposed during this election.

Council Member Aide Castro has a very very nice ring to it.

Jim Morton was 500 votes behind Maria in the recall. Now, I don't believe anything you are saying because this was so simple to look up and you lied.

Get out and knock on some doors, but don't talk bad about the candidates to make yourself look good. Our residents are smarter than that, Aide.

I've seen Castro "out and knocking" on some doors the last few weeks with her husband. So there you go.

I have read several comments about Ramon and ACE Hardware. I asked several people in the City and I was told that Ramon has NEVER had a Contract with the city. City Hall used to buy material from the store (and never paid their bills). The District has always bought from the store. I don't understand, when did it become wrong to solicit local businesses? Is it only now because a handful of people don't like Ramon. That's just stupid.

I also stopped by that Senior Apartment building. I found out that the company that is making the repairs is George Frontela not Arsenio. The city advertised for BIDS to complete the project and George had the lowest bid. What is wrong with that? Just because he has a brother that works for the city and because he is the person that built the house that Maria bought? I'm sorry, I still don't see anything wrong with hiring a person to do work at the best possible price. Have any of you gone to that piece of crap Senior Apartment. The way that group of so called Pastors put that place together, I wouldn't put my mother-in-law in there! Thank goodness we now have an honest contractor putting the place in order.

Why don't all of the candidates grow up, stop the mud slinging and campaign on why they should be in office instead of trying to point fingers and make false accusations.

The problem is that Arsenio Frontela helps his brother get business. They work together. Frontela Construction also built Maria's home. That is just a conflict of interest. I agree that there is no problem doing business locally but the law is the law. Mr and Mrs Rodriguez are in position to vote on contracts that benefit them financially. Therefore as long as they are elected officials we can't do business with them. If it wasn't illegal Paul wouldn't be facing 10 years in jail.

So what if Arsenio helps his brother! My God are you that ignorant, people knock Ramon because he didn't help his family, now you're knocking Arsenio because he does. Which is it? The construction work was advertised in the Press Telegram, anyone could have bid.

So what if Frontela Construction built Maria's home. Thank You Frontela Construction for taking a vacant lot filled with debris and blight and building a beautiful home there! Are you saying that it is a conflict for a Councilmember to vote yes to the lowest bidder? That is their job!

And another thing, Mr. & Mrs. Rodriguez ARE NOT bidding on CONTRACTS! There are NO contracts. Do your homework, someone in the Maintenance Department from either the district or the city needs a pushbroom, should they go into South Gate or drive to Downey to buy it? Or should they drive to Atlantic and buy one from ACE and add to the city's sales tax?

Their are no exceptions to the LAW. Do your homework. Look up the 1090 code. This will help yo understand. Open your eyes. Mr Rodriguez was warned and stoped at the council. All you need to do is ask for the minutes of the meetings. What made him think he could do it at the district. If someone in maintenance needs a broom they can shop at Smart & Final.

I think that YOU are the one that needs to do your homework. Ramon was NEVER told to stop selling to the city. There is NO conflict as long as his business is reported. And I hope that YOU are not a candidate, because YOU are already awarding a purchase at a higher cost. Smart & Final does NOT offer the city discounts. ACE sells to the city at cost! Thank you ACE for not over spending my tax dollars!

You have no idea what you are saying. It's obvious you don't understand the laws that govern this country. It was never wrong that Ramon Rodriguez sold goods to the City, and school district. What was wrong, and against the law is after appointment to city council, he made the decision for the city to continue to purchase goods from his business Ace Lumber. The price of the goods is irrelevant. His "yes" vote was going to directly affect him and help him make him money. We gave him his position to make decisions in the best interest of the CITY!! When he votes on contracts for Ace Lumber, he is making decisions that are in HIS best interest, not the city. CODE 1090 Conflict of Interest is what the law calls it. He broke the law. If he wanted to continue to do business with the city, he should have never ran for public office.

Any attempt you make to confuse the voters on this issue is merely an act of desperation. We all know Rodriguez is sweating bullets right now. Make all the excuses you want. Ramon Rodriguez broke the law, and should suffer the consequences. You can deny these facts all you want, the proof is out, and in the hands of the voters.

We will be heard.

The conflict issue is petty. Lets talk about how much money Ramon was going to make on the casa grande deal. All the construction materials were going to funneled through Ace Hardware. Millions will be made. Why do you think Ramon, Fedroza and Santillan approved a deal with Bill Martinez (Robles Alley) allowing him to only $6 per sq ft. on a piece of land that cost $12 per sq. ft. Who will pay the difference, the City? of course. Other developers are paying over $12 per sq. ft. for land throughout Lynwood. Why is this proerty any different. Aide "corrupt" Castro was also involved in this project. She was promised the loans and listings on the CasaGrande project so, she came out and spoke in favor of the project knowing that this is not a good deal for the city. She's not even on the Council and she already sold out to developers. Aide, Pedroza, Rodriquez, and Santillan are all from the same mold, opportunist and hungry for the all mighty dollar. On November 8th do not vote for any of these four candidates. A vote for them is like putting Paul Richards back in office.
