Ethnic Transformation In Lynwood

Lynwood, CA - Article by Elizabeth Wright describes the ethnic transformation in Lynwood. Current Mayor Pro-Alfreddie Johnson states in the article that during the time Armando Rea was appointed Mayor of Lynwood, 13 african american people were fired at the same time. A Latina opponent also states Rea's supporters knocked on doors "saying we needed to get rid of black city council members."

"They got rid of... 13 of whom were black" says Alfreddie Johnson.

What Alfreddie fails to understand is that if NEPOTISM knows no color boundaries.

If Paul Richards and his then previous Black majority Council, were green and from Mars, then the statement would sound ridiculous.

"13 of whom were Martian"

Paul Richards appointed a lot of blacks to city hall and gave high paying jobs to his friends who happened to be black.

Crooks are crooks! They come in all colors.

Reverend Johnson fails to tell the truth.

The truth is that the "13 black" were NOT deserving of his jobs in public service.

They were neither qualified nor willing to provide honest services to the people of Lynwood.

In fact the statements made by Alfreddie Johnson are RACIST.

He attacks Armando Rea, because Armando exposes his corruption, as well as Leticia Vasquez'.

In the words of Johnny Corcoran:
"THAT"S RACISMMMM!

Look at the numbers, numbers don't lie. The majority in Lynwood and the whole state is Hispanic. What do you expect.

Who cares what nationality our elected officials are! As long as they are doing a good job, I don't care.

I visited the website. Is this one of those black supremacist groups? Why are they attacking Latino immigrants? Is this mean that Rev. Johnson is part of that Black supremacist group that opposses Mexican immigrants?

If 80% of your workers were green and you have lay offs, PRESTO... most of the lay offs will be green!
- A. Einstein

During Richard's reign, we didnt hear any outcry that only 20% of the workers were latino. Why is it, all of a sudden, a problem now?

Well?
...I am listening....that's what I thought!

If 95% of the town is blue, you can't expect the 5% orange to have half of the power. How is that racist? My neighbor is Syrian. Should she have half the power and half the City jobs? We wouldnt want to be RACIST! Right?

Armando Rea? Wasn't he in office like 10 years ago? Get OVER IT! Move on!

Some body askd for exemples of Richards nepotim.
Richards sisters/Nices/nephews Adriana, Paola, Bruno, Autra, Julio in the Lynwood Pay-Roll.
Just to mention some individuals
Adriana won a case and was awarded $125,000.00 from your tax dollars and a new contract until she retired, Autra is the Parks and Recreations Director, Bruno is the Second/First in charged in Redevelopment Dep.
One of the most influential Dep. in any city$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Any body wanting to build in Lynwood has to go through the Development Dep. get the picture!!!
There are planty more Black,Latino,Asian and White in position that have their price to stamp your project, it all depends on how much you are willing to put on the table.
So please open your eyes it's costing Lynwood Tax Payers lots of money.
No Revenew More taxes, Higer price for services.
"Like Maria Teresita Santillan said in the meeting were Water rate was increased "The Lynwood residents are going to get mad any way wether we increase it to a 5% or 30% so lets go for 30% Plus 5% Plus 5% Plus 5% up to 60% in 5 years.
Byrd dosen't care he spends most of his life in Vegas, Lety doesen't own a house, lives in her parents home on Walnut St. so is Alfreddy a Moma's Boy, at their age
What a Shame!!
Want more stay tune

Does NEPOTISM also mean . . . . . AWARDING AN EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT TO YOUR FATHER IN LAW? Pedroza

What about giving your COUSIN A HOME? Pedroza - recipient Aide Castro

Please Messican, go celebrate (Messican Independence Day) and stop throwing stones when you people are doing the same thing!

That's why all the council must go. But I will say this, their is no longer a contract and no house was given away. If someone can show me mortgage payments are being made for her then I'll believe you story. Untill then I can't wait to see this whole council removed form office. This stupid council has the nerve to rub this water increase in our face by plastering it all over the Lynwood n Perpective. Where the hell is that recall petition? As a black woman I can see when the race card is brought out to instill fear between races. Alfreddie give it up, you are just a house Ni.....Take your fake as wanna be Rev back to scientology. How dare you do this to your own people. Paul at least took care os us. For you Leticia, you ain't black and you never will be. If you really understood black people you would know we don't like when people try to act black. Maria you are truly a racist and stopo trying to say you have black friends because you don't. The bitches you work with don't count. Mr Byrd what's up? You need to knock some sense into Alfreddie and Leticia. Fernando, we like you but we don't like all this Mexican sister city shit. Why not a sister city in Africa? Better yet why don't you just stop. What does Lynwood ever get from sister ciies? Nothing so stop traveling on my tax dollars.

Janet C. said...

You're right! why don't we have a sister city that isn't a pueblito where councilmember's ignorant butts came from? Well its too late. NO MORE SISTER CITIES! What the hell has Talpa done for us? Its supposed to be a MUTUAL benefit! We have enough problems at home than to try solve the problems of some lil' town in Mexico.

Kepp Lynwood $ in Lynwood!

For the last comment just for you to know, if you live in Lynwood you are living in El Rancho San Antonio de Lugo, and if you want more history Ham Park was Antonio Maria Lugo Park.
Now who are the immigrants here Mexican or White or Black.
Remember the Grapes of Wrought?
Manny Mexicans stayed here after EL TRATADO DE HIDALGO, de because it was and it always be their home
regardless ignorant Racist, that at end of the day needs them/us.
We latinos are the majority in California wheter you like it or not, but I know that we need good honest representation, NOT SELL- OUTS like the ones we have now at diferent levels of government.
Saty tune!!!!

BTW-Lynwood Watch Dog is not Pedroza or even related to him is a Lynwood resident that fights for justice and is agaisnt CROOKS like Pedroza so please do not offend me associating with Fernie.
His day will come if not in Coolies Watch in next DA, hopfully a Democrat/independent.

Hey Anonymous (if that's your real name?)..

Racist? Listen Mr. History lesson -I am MEXICAN-American. I live in the USA and want my dollars helping us! Not helping council members party in Talpa! When the hell did I say anything about immigrant?

And by the way (Just for you to know")...the first people in "America" migrated from northeast asia! you dummy. Using your "logic", maybe we should hand everything over to them. Will that make you happy? (or even a little less miserable than you alreadt are!)

MECHA really messed you people up!

Love,

The Mammoth want their land back. I say we all just pack our bags and migrate back across the Bering Strait or back across the Pacific Ocean from where we came.

Don't you mean the Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck? What waste of paper! 600 pages of dust.

Oh yeah, im sure they stayed because it has always been there home. Had nothing to do with eventually being allowed to become US Citizens. Lets ignore the fact that lots of people left and sold their land to the US.

Janet C. said...

What about Adam and Eve or the Neanderthal People? I think they got first dibs! You guys are right..let's give the land back. Can I take the 5 to the Bering Straight?

(Yes, this is exactly how ridiculous some of you people sound.)

E-HOG...you are alright in my book!

Anonylmous, spewing regurgitated history, learn of the Treaty of Guadalupe, the U.S. bought California and most of the other southwest states. A very interesting transaction, $15,000,000. Where did it go? Actually the only stealing going on was, let me think, How did Mexico get hold of what is now the SouthWestern U.S.

E-HOG said...

Don't just stop at the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

Let's not forget the Gadsden Purchase of 1853 only five years after the Mexican-American War. That purchase was for $10 million.

Janet, It's glad to see we have some more rational people here.

Welcome to the circus that is Lynwood Watch.

The 5-freeway takes you all the way up to the Canadian border. From there you're on your own. I'll take the trip with ya if you like. I'm sure we can cross into Canada no problem. It's not like a country's sovereign borders matter these days.

Wait a minute mr. Lynwood Watch is not the circus, the people that post comments, like you, and everyone else are the circus...

Johnson's personal assistant is eye candy. She is very darn good looking. The problem is, she's never there, and no one knows what she does. Why are we paying her to do nothing?

That does not make sense. You said no one knows what she does..and the next question asks why she is being paid to do nothing. Goodness! she must be doing something.

You're right, She makes council meetings pleasant. She looks like an airhead, but she's attractive... that's good enough for me.
