You racist fool.

How dare you question the love of two people.

I congratulate them on their marriage and wish them luck.

The Assistance City Manager resigning is such a brilliant display of great character. Kudos to her.

God's Speed to both of them.

Resigning on the day they were married would have been a display of great character. By not resigning on that day is a display of Hoping not to be caught, thats how I question it.

was he part of the hiring committee, or did he have a say????? SOMETHING IS VERY STRANGE..........

Who cares?

Why wasn't Paul Richards questionned by the residents and staff when Lorry would spend hours in his office. This isn't gossip, everyone knows they had an affair and it was okay.

What about the other councilmember that travels to Mexico to see his girlfriend, that doesn't seem to bother anyone, either.

I think it's great that they found love!

They found love? What they found was a City full of idiots and idiot policticans, that they figured they could $$$CATITOLIZE$$$ on. They did and they will.

C'mon don't hate! Haven't you ever falling in love? Obviously not! Even Vasquez was happy for them.

I know, you must be an old fart or old maid. Or perhaps, very unhappy with your relationship . . .whatever it might be.

why is fernie so upset? did he make an indicent proposal to the woman and she didn't fall for it?

Lets all not be stupid here. There were impepriaties here with the intent to deceive. Lets not get caught up in the love BS. They both knew it was wrong to hide it. Why did they it, because there is a conflict. The whole recruiting process that was used to hire the Assistant is now suspect. The fact they the both were signing City checks as husband and wife for past 4 months is suspect. The City Manager should have known better. What the City Manager lacks in height he should not lack in better judgement. Being sneaking never works. Wake up Lynwood. The City Manager must go.

Where is Lorry Hempe in all of this?

Anonymous said...

Lorry's still around regardless of the affairs, and the trial, etc.
Regarding the hiding part, neither Enrique nor Marianna are forced to disclose their marriage to anyone. That's their private life. Look around City Hall, there are many married couples, many bothers and sisters, here are some examples:

Jose - Susanne
Maria – Alma
Ramon – Yolanda
JD – Delania
Kimberly – Eric
Adolfo – Natalia

What about Ofelia with the code enforcement officer?

And J.D. With Martha. And the councilmember that hits up anything with a skirt!

I agree with the majority of the council, they are both doing a great job and they should stay.

You are all being stupid again. All the above mentioned were and are not in the position of authority and signing city checks. Come you bunch of dummies. Wake up.

We are sure there are planty more in city hall and the city yard that are or have been together, but who cares. Deception is the key here. Lets not confuse the two.

Anonymous said...

That's not deception, it's people's right to privacy in their personal life. Being local celebrities does nto mean they're life is public. Some people like each other, they get it out of their bodies, and move on. Others start relationships, and they keep them; others feel better getting married. Doesn't matter. Who you fall in love with, who you have an affair with, who you have a one night stand with are all a person's private life. People's personal lives should be kept that way, PERSONAL.
Marianna Maryseva is the biggest contradiction to the axiom: Pretty blondes are stupid. She is both a very attractive woman, and over all, a very, very intelligent person. She resigned. Period. End of conversation.
Love or attraction for that matter, can happen in the most strange ways... Good for them that they did what they did.

Oscar Wilde once said, "The best way to fight temptation is to fall in its arms".

VIVE L'AMOUR!

The bigger conflict will be if she the Assitant City Manager stays on as a consultant. I would not put this past the City Manager and I would not be surprised if the big dummies on coucil support this. Stayed tuned.

Whomever wrote the comment about my deceased mother can confront me face to face. My deceased mother never had an affair with anyone except her deceased husband and unless you were sleeping in our home how dare you. Whomever you are has hit a sore spot this is my mother and you have discrased her name and shown ignorance on your own part. This only goes to show someone never taught you what and who a lady is and what she is about. I am not in hiding and can be found most any time and anywhere and if I were you I would be awful careful about being sued for liable. Please try looking in a dictionary for the definition of liable and before anyone else mentions a DIXON on this page be careful as to not to offend a DIXON because there are still DIXON's ALIVE and well within this City of Lynwood

Has anyone even wondered why the City manager was fireing people because of nepotism and then turns around and marries an illigal himself, one that he got the job and position. In case your not aware, his new wife's visa expired in January and they were married in Febuary. Kind of makes you think about what's really going on in the city. have a nice day.

Lynwood is filled with crooks. Lets start with your new city manager; he here to clean up the city "RIGHT" he has more dirty than the beach. He claim he did not know the assistance city manage before he came to the city, "YEAH RIGHT" there were many questions about him knowing Marianna prior to their employment with the city. He stated he did not know here, well how funny this woman he did not know he falls in love with her and marries her after a few dates. "BULL SHIT" Yeah maybe they did get married Feb. 15 but what year? And why did they keep it a secret for 3 months? He's a big crook or should I say short crook. Clean out your closet before you try to clean up a city. What happen in the other cities he worked for????? He was fired for being a crook and a sexual harasser.
What about Ms. Adams, yes Autra Adams, she is the Interim Director of Recreation, Who is Autra and what do she know about recreation? (Have you seen her??? F.A.T.) Why we never see her at any special events for the recreation dept? She don't know what she's doing, she spends most of her time trying to strip people of their authority. She only knows one thing about recreation and that Mr. Brents. She has it out for him so bad, you knew he was married when you was screwing around with him, get over it you got played, just ask his wife. You have to know how to play the game, he did not tell you to fall in love with him... He was and still is married "STUPID" Do you job Ms. Director leave your personal feelings out of Lynwood.
Did you know there are so many crooks in the recreation dept.? There is this one staff person who was stealing money out of the snack bar from LSA and Youth Baseball. He still works for the city in the sports office.(ART anyone) Get this his supervisor knew but she did not do shit about it. Damn Deb. Jackson you are a crook too. I think he was splitting the money with Deb. Jackson so her and Rosie and Jose Trejo can go to the local bar and play golf on city time... "CROOKS"
There are other crooks like Jim Given and his top staff. People if these crooks stop trying to bet the system and start providing more programs for senior and youth that would put a stop to some of the crime in our city.

If you expect anyone, especially council to believe anything. . . . Please put it in writing and sign it! Otherwise, it's just gossip.

Hey Fernando, what's your language, we're watching you...

Anonymous said...

You can talk about it all you want but untill there are good honest people elected in the City we are going to see this.
The city of Lynwood does not have any Nepotism policy and Coucil members and employees know it.
Lynwood residents Re-elected Fernando, and if we don't shut-up our mouth and go and vote Leticia will be re-elected again.
Not that I am for or against but any body that has ties with crooks does not deserve to serve as council or consultant for that matter.
You saw the voting to hire legal representation.
That meas a "BLAK-CHECK" for Leticia, and that oponed the door for Byrd and Fernando to do the same thing when the time comes.
Your taxes will be increase services will cost more, safety in our city most likely will continue to declaine.
Consultants will continue milking the city because they supported council memebrs on their re-election and they must pay those favaors that goes for all Council members Lety, Maria, Fernado, Alfredie and El pajaro.

Lynwood Watch Dog!!

Mr Wacth Dog. Their has been a nepotism policy in place since 1977. But of course our council nor our city manager do their homework. Or maybe they just don't care and pretend to be ignorant to what is simply common sense.

Anonymous said...

Okay, so if that's the case answer the following:

Why did Paul have his sister, nephew and God daughter working in the City?

Why hasn't anywone said anything about Lorry (former City Manager) having an affiar with Paul Richards?

Why did Pedroza give his father in law an exclusive towing contract?

Why have two former City Managers, married their employees/councilmembers?

Anonymous said...

I never said it was okay. I'm saying they don't care. They have a resolution against nepotism, but they ignore it to their convenience.

Anonymous said...

I think all of us are missing the point, excluding his new wife, who I think married him for personal gain as well. It was mentioned earlier that this is a pattern Mr. Martinez practices from city to city. It is very appearant that he makes his (supposed) soffisticated life style from lawsuits he files from every employer. He knows well that by engaging in inappropriate behavior with a subordinate will end up with his dismissal where he will receive thousands and thousands of dollars from that lawsuit he will file. He then moves on to the next city, gets hired of course, receiving a new salary while still receiving monetary compensation from the previous employer. Is there any smart councilmember around that would demand a REAL background check before signing a contract to thieves like this? This is what I call a truly "professional thief".

The City Manager was fired from Bell Gardens asked to leave from Pasadena. The City of Lynwood was desperate to hire a City Manager and in their desperation hired this shorty without looking at his tainted past. The City Manager must go. How much more deception does the City need to see.

The City Manager must go. Council need to investigate the people they hire. I think that council need to wake up and be smart, because this little man is going to steal the city money one way or another, and that want leave any money for their trips and their pockets

Anonymous said...

The little man won't steal he'll just continue to spend money till it runs out. Think about it what has he done since he came aboard except to create positions that pay high. What new projects has he brought in or pushed. He used the City to lure his girlfriend with a high paying job and complete his courtship. The City Council is so stupid.

All of these comments are entertaining but nearly every one exhibits woefully poor spelling and grammar. What a shame.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the above. The blog should have a spell check and grammer component. Until then the City manager has to be replaced. He lied with the intent to deceive. He needs to be fired for cause and let him sue if he feels that there was not just cause for his firing. Keep the wife there and see if she doesn't marry the next City Manager. MMm, and who will that next City Manager be?

Well, lets wait and see what the Council does on Tuesday on the Assistant City Manager position. It is on the agenda for discussion in closed session.

For the comment of June 23, 2006 which I'm sure was written by Mr. & Mrs. Martinez which cannot stand the criticism anymore, yes; we have better things to do but we won't rest until we see both of you gone. Hopefully, the City Council will read these comments and realize how stupid and uneducated they are when they will finally realize that there are smarter thieves than them (i.e., aside from council, smarter CITY "SUPER THIEF" Martinez.....

Anonymous said...

We understand that the City Manager wanted to keep his wife employed in Lynwood and some of the dummy council were even going for it considering keeping her through a contract. The wife should be long gone by now. The little man wants to keep her memory alive and instructed the computer division to keep the wife's picture and title reference on the City's web site. We checked today and her picture and title is still there. Remover her Little Man. Wake up Council. What is Lynwood comming to when the only council person of reason on an issue is Pedroza. Come on Pedroza get your votes together to remove the Little Man. If this was Paul the Little Man would have been gone by now.

As an executive of municipal government in a neighboring jurisdiction, there is nothing wrong with finding love in the workplace. It is a PERSONAL choice and is one aspect of being human. While fraught with danger, especially in the circumstance of a supervisor/subordinate position (e.g. Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski), some city managers have done it successfully.

What is WRONG is the fact the the City Manager and the Assistant City Manager chose to hide their relationship from City Council, even after they had married. This causes obvious conflicts of interest. For instance, consider the Assistant City Manager's requests for travel, requests for pay increases, requests for upgrades to her office, consideration of hiring on as a contractor, etc., etc. The City Manager essentially benefitted from all these things as well. There are laws and reasons why the public's business is done in public under the light of day (the Brown Act) to prevent preferential treatment and personal gain at the public's expense.

The couple claim that they never told City Council because it was a personal issue. I ask, Who is in charge here, the City Manager or Council? Why not tell City Council in closed session and let Council decide the best course of action? Either the City Manager or the Assistant City Manager should have resigned the day they got married. I think Lynwood is so used to corruption and unethical behavior that they can't see it when it stares them in the face.

WEIRD Isn't it strange that there
has been nothing done about getting a new finance director. Is
this job posting being ignored because our little manager and wife need the money and are stalling the search to keep our tax
dollars flowing is their direction.
Is this a conflict or what ? We expect a little more honesty from our Public Servants
