They should just knock down whatever is between the 105 Freeway, Long Beach, Imperial and Plaza Mexico and build a stadium for Chivas USA. That way the dirty goats could get the fuck out of Galaxy's Cathedral.

We have to this keep a watchful eye, and be careful with this type of proposals, it could only be a way to divert funds thruogh consultants.
Remenber the Enterprenur Academy
used by Richards and his family, were we lost more then a million training new business people that claimed to be in business to get funds and nothing.
Lynwood resdents keep your hands in your pockets!!

Well.

Janet has left us with nothing to talk about.

How about we all meet up and have BBQ at Lynwood Park?

That's a great idea! Maybe all this nonsense will stop! I'll bring the meat!

Does Lynwood ever do anything without thinking about it first?

Alfreddie Johnson is only trying to find ways to "FUNNEL" money from the city to all His friends and family--Just the way Paul Richards did.

The problem is that they are doing it successfully because he's not working alone: The City Manager, the Assistant City Manager (his wife), Leticia Vasquez, and Alfreddie Johnson are in this together. This is the reason why the city has not gotten a replacement for the ACM, all they are doing is prolonging the process to hire a new ACM. All these CRONIES need to go!!!!!

Just an observation. When a council person makes a positive suggestion that would result in thousands of new jobs and millions more in revenue for the City of Lynwood, there is always some person ready to hurl unproven and even non existant allegations at those councilmembers, with out offering one shred of proof, yet when Armando Rhea is found to have lied to duputies about having pointed a gun at two kids and Armando is found to have two illegal guns in his possesion, these same people spring to his defense. What alternatives have these neighsayers ever offered to replace the income stream into Lynwood that there is a chance of the city receiving now? New jobs, a new tax base, years after thiose politicians leave office, OMG, how horrible. Lets hang those who propose progress. Before you leap look at our city and see that it is starting to die. It is the attitude of the doomsayers who are chasing away good revenue sources and preventng new ones from coming in. As residents we need to wake up and shun these people who try so poorly to hide their own self interests, which they place above the rest of us and who who are so quick to condem our City Officials who stand accused of NOTHING by anyone except these few self serving freaks. The only ones I am aware of that are truly under investigation are those involved in the last recall for using underaged girls to collect signatures and that is voter fraud. Neither Johnson nor Vasquez are under investigation and they are the ones these nuts are trying to recall for their own interests. I may ne wrong but I think the people here are too smart to fall for the likes of those behind this second recall, especially now that Aide Castro has withdrawn from being a part of that group.

I don't disagree with your comment. But let me tell you that both Alfreddie and Leticia are under investigation by the FBI and DA. They have been questioned several times. The sadder part is that our whole council is under investigation. The investigation on the recall was completed a day before the last recall signatures were submitted because Leticia was going to use the investigation to get an injuction if the recall was certified. Don't be fooled by the council either. Most of all don't be fooled by Leticia. But you are right to say that we have to many negative ignorant people involved in our city politics beginning with the council.

Okay, you attack Councilperson Johnson, you attack the City Manager, however there is no ongoing investigation, no charges have been filed or even contemplated, however YOU ALONE have determined these crimes have happened and youhave pronounced these people guilty of crime nobody in authority has even charged tehm with or mentioned. Uh huh, well okay. Hmm, did the Martians tell you that or did a spirit come to at night and inform you about this? Where is your proof? Why haven't you exposed this fraud to the city council at a public meeting? Why is it that ONLY you are in a position to know this important information, or COULD IT BE that you are simply a political adversary of Johnson's and that is why you shield your
identity when you make such obviously BS attacks. You are really pathetic and beneath contempt and I certainly hope you do not have any children because they might learn to grow up and be like you.

Listen dearie, don't count your chickens too soon. This latest pathetic attempt at a recall is the biggest fizzle of them all. You can't admit it but you know this is going to fail miserably and you will never be elected to the City Council, EVER. The recall is a joke and so are you. You do know that people are laughing at you behind your back, right? Even Aide Castro pulled out of this recall effort because she too could see the silliness of the entire effort. You poor, poor misrable excuse for a real person. Just go get a job and try to keep your kids from being like you were. You have no political future.

So not true, Aide Castro pulled out of the recall because she was told to pull out. She signed the original intent to recall both Leticia and Johnson.

I can email the proof to this blog so that they can post it.

Sylvia is not going to run for any political office. She truly is trying to do good for the community. Although many of us might disagree with her she is still my friend and I don't like people talking about her with out knowing the truth. The truth is these council members all have to go, but the main problem to her are Alfreddie and Leticia. Sylvia is not looking to be an elected official she is simply looking to put an end to stupid actions. Her efforts are to be commended. How many of us just complaint but stay at home and do nothing? Very simple if you don't think these people should be recalled don't sign the petition. Those of you who defend the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem should be asking why hasn't either one of them tried to contact her to see what can be done working together. They won't do it. They will claim that it is a waste of time. All Sylvia wants is a reasonable increase on the water not the 30% we are getting. They will claim their is no other choice but their is. Sylvia also wants for them to correct the illegal 10% utility tax they have been collecting from us. She would also like to see the practice of nepotism being stopped. She also would like a score board on the baseball diamond. She would also like to see are soccer fields being used by Lynwood kids and not kids from Orange county. In short the MAyor and MAyor Pro Tem need to understand that not everything is a conspiract theory.

Sylvia's anonymous friend.

PS Sylvia I love you like a big sister and I'll always have your back. I'm sorry that I can't help you on this one.

To the comment written on 3:33 PM, October 17, 2006

Yes, I was part of the original attempt to recall all council members and I did sign as a proponent. And yes I was asked, not told by many people not to get involved. Their was a change of plans that I do not agree with, so I excused myself. Understand that with or with out me it was going to happen. Now it is up to the residents to decide what they would like to see happen. Like the previous comment states, you don't need to attack the messenger. If you don't feel they should be recalled simply don't sign the recall. For the record, I will not be helping or hurting the effort. In case your attempt was to make my original involvement public, you are late to the party. I made the information public and for the record at a council meeting during public orals. I advised the council that unfortuantely only 2 council members had been served with recall papers. I didn't feel it was the right thing for the community because of the general election coming up this year 2007. Had it included all the council members then at least it would have been calling for a complete change. I also stated that I did not appreciate the unethical behavior from Strategic Counsel. For those of you who don't know who Strategic are, they are the attorneys that were hired illegaly to pretend to investigate the prior recall against the Mayor Leticia Vasquez. An attorney from Strategic visited the home of the treasurer from the Southeast League of Voters. Since she was not their he proceeded to ask her under age son where his mother had obtain all the money to buy the nice things they have in their home. He also ask if they were legal residents and told her son he would be reporting his mom to INS. To his surprise her son advised him to leave the property and advised he was no longer welcomed and the cops would be called if he ever tried to scare, intimidate, or harrass them. also advising him that they were US citizens and his threatd meant nothing. To make long story short I advised the Mayor in public in nicer words that I have nothing to do with this effort, but you are wrong if you think I will allow my friends to be intimadated, scared, or harrassed. I value and protect my friends. I have no tolerance for bullies.

Respectfully,
Aide Castro

PS Friendly reminder. If you want to know anything about me or my actions simply ask. I don't have a problem with the truth. Those who owe nothing, fear nothing. El que nada debe, nada teme.

Why is it that Aide consistently feels she has to defend herself? A mature individual with an open mind would simply let everyone have their own opinion and not constantly be so argumentative. Over 50 individuals have been attacked by both lies and truths, and are able to turn the other cheek and not feel so guilty by having to defend themselves. Get over it Aide. Haven't you ever heard the phrase 'let sleeping dogs lie'.

Aide Castro said...

I respect your opinion and agree with you to a certain extent. I feel that one of the reasons people spread rumors and lies is because no one confronts them. It has always been my experience that confronting a liar sooner or later they think twice before making things up about you. They will be fully aware that if they are going to say something about you, they better have their facts straight. I don't like assumptions, and I'm not going put up with it just because it might be the more socially acceptable. Why should I allow people to spread lies? Have you ever wondered how many of the bloggers are really the council members trying to defend themselves anonymously? I'd rather people form an opinion about me based on my own words, rather than them forming an opinion on lies and rumors. I don't mean to be argumentative. I just want to make sure I'm clear about my position.

Respectfully,
Aide Castro

Ms. Castro, I guess you didn't hear a word I said, or if you did, you chose to ignore it, just the same way you choose to ignore the truth when it is right before your eyes. You hear a story, pass judgement, and never bother to hear the other side. You are opinionated and pigheaded. You have a big mouth and an ugly face. Pray that the Lynwood residents never elect you to Council. Your attitude is equivelant to an ex-wife!

Aide Castro said...

With all do respect Mam or Sir. Maybe I didn't make myself clear. I don't respond for your personal benefit. I respond for my supporters. If you've already decided that I am pig headed and ugly with out knowing me personally, you are frankly a waste of my time. Why is it bad to confront liars? Isn't normal to defend yourself when someone lies on you? And believe me when I say I don't feel guilty for my actions. While you pray that I never get on council, I'll pray for you. Because if you raise your children to allow themselves to be bullied, intimadated, or scared in any way, you need to pray for yourself and for them because that's just wrong. I am who I am and I will never back down to anyone who lies on me.

To give you an example; I once told a great man not to be so loud. I shushed him. He very politelly told me, No! He explained to me that he refused to be quiet. He was going to be as loud as he wanted for the simple fact of breaking the cycle of suppression. He realized that I didn't understand him, so he took the time to educate me. He explained that since we're children we are told to be quiet. Then we get older and don't know how to communicate. As time passes for lack of expressing your true emotions sooner or later you will explode. He went on to explain that churches and master of slaves used these tactics to keep the people or slaves under control. In other words when people speak up, sooner or later the truth comes out. If people communicate they can join forces. As long as we are ignorant to the truth, we will continued to be supressed.

The way I see it you are trying to supress my freedom of speach and my GOD given right to have an opinion. I try to be as humble as possible. But my next statement is arrogant. At my 29 years of age I have not accomplished what I have, by being nice and quiet. I gurantee you that by my age you didn't have my accomplishments. I find it amazing that someone that doesn't know me, can have such an opinion about me. I can't respect someone who hides and is not brave enough to call me or confront me in person. If your answer is you don't need to do all of that, for what ever reason, then your all talk and no action. In conversation sooner or later people with open minds, as you claim to have, come to some understanding of the other persons' view point. Key word; conversation. In other words their is a form of communication.


Never will I be quiet! Never will I give up! Never will I be intimadated! Most importantly don't lie on me if you don't want to be put on blast. If you don't know what being put on blast means. Ask your children. It might help you with your communication skills. Might even help you get to know your kids a little more. Unless your kids are grown and out of the house.

I think I have been very tolerant of peoples' opinion. I can take constructive criticism, but not insults. You need to know me personally to have that privilege. And just because I accept your criticism doesn't mean I need to agree with you. Last but not least if you don't know me, how do you know if I just pass judgement with out hearing the other side of the story? You don't. Do you?

I challenge you to call me or come up to me. Better yet, tell me your name. Bet you won't! The sad part is I probably do know you. You probably don't have the guts to talk to me directly. Could it be that my actions intimidate and scare you?

All these years of us turning our cheeks to lies, is why this community is suffering. I'm looking to lead this community to the truth.

I looked up the definition of a Leader. I looked on the web, and I looked in a dictionary. Neither one of them described a leader to be quiet or passive.

: a person who leads : as a : GUIDE, CONDUCTOR b (1) : a person who directs a military force or unit (2) : a person who has commanding authority or influence c (1) : the principal officer of a British political party (2) : a party member chosen to manage party activities in a legislative body (3) : such a party member presiding over the whole legislative body when the party constitutes a majority d (1) : CONDUCTOR c (2) : a first or principal performer of a group


: free from fear : BRAVE
- fear·less·ly adverb
- fear·less·ness noun

I have given you two definitions. One for a leader and one for fearless.

I am a fearless leader! You might call it arrogance. I call it confidence.

THOSE WHO OWE NOTHING FEAR NOTHING

Without bothering to read or listen to you ramble on and on about yourself, I quit at the first paragraph, because your response started out stupid, and probably went down from there. For your information Ms. Castro, I rasied my children to take the high road, and ignore bullies and shit talkers. They are their own worst enemy. Walk away from a fight, not into one, and quiet pride is far better than being loud and conceited. I did see one line that stood out, that just proved once again how ignorant and self righteous you can be. It was in the Bible my dear Ms. Castro that God said to turn the other cheek. Are you so arrogant that you are above the word of God as well?

Everyone has a hard on for AIde. Don'y worry girl I got this one for you.

Hey high and mighty shedevil or hedevil. How about you stop using the word of God to prove a point. You're making yourself look like an idiot by telling her to ignore people's comments when you are doing the same shit by responding to her. Get it through your stupid head that she don't give a fuck about your opinion. She disagrees with your opinion like many other people do. Do you want her to be quiet like Maria? Even Maria is speaking up now. If you chose not to read the rest of her comment it's because you know she's right. Fuck she even broke it down for you. Definitions and all. What you consider a leader we don't. She represents what we the community really feel about our local government. Explain how you expect her to be our voice if you want her quiet?

Aide keep on doing what you are doing. And like Lorenzo always tells you. Never change and always be you. We accept you as you are. We know what is in your heart and in your actions. Ignore those same 30 chamber roaches that wish they were young like you. They wish they had your opportunities.
