Again, I freakin' amazed how people think this is some stroke of genius!

What? Lynwood developed a crime problem yesterday?

Wow, this council and city manager are good! Watch out Cerritos, Lynwood is right behind you!

How 'bout this option:

RECALL!

The recall is a waste of time. Why are we going to pay for a recall to have another election a couple of months later. That's just stupid.

Hey, you are right!

Why should we pay the street sweeper to pass in front of your house if the wind will eventually blow the trash away "a couple of months later"?

"Thats just stupid."

Here is the city hall number (310)603-0220. Call them and cancel your service & tell them that paying to clean your street is another "waste of time".

Sorry Janet,

You have been on the money with your comments prior to this. But your answer is plain stupid. You can't compare a neccesary service to a recall. A recall is an option a needed service is not. Bad comparison. A recall can cost up to 70 thousand dollars. why would anyone in their right mind want to spend money to recall someone who can run in a regular election two months later. Makes no sense. A recall opens it up for any idiot to get in. Perfect example Santillan got in, and Morton almost got in. What the hell has Santillan really done for the community other than take credit for a recall that was done as a team effort. Educate yourself in Lynwood politics first then talk. In the meanwhile you just sound like anothe immature little girl. Although I feel Vasquez is bad for our city, a recall at this time simply makes no sense.

A recall at $70,000 is cheap when you consider that Leticia Vasquez and Alfreddie Johnson have wasted over $50,000 on "investigate lawyers" to harrass the people involved in Leticia's recall.

Also those "assistants" they voted for are costing us over $100,000 a year.

Leticia and Byrd are up for re-election. By recalling Leticia now. Her recall election more than likely would be consolidated November 2007 election.

So you see it might not costs us anything after all.

And even if it did. Operations to remove cancerous tumors are expensive.

Oh well the high price of health!

Get you facts straight. Council deputies are not costing even half of what you are claiming.

THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO DEMANDED AN INVESTIGATION ARE YOUR PET SENIORS. OH YEAH,AND THE TWO NON PROFITS THAT PROFITTED DEARLY DEFENDING YOU LETICIA. IT'S FUNNY, WE HAVN'T SEEN THEM SINCE. JUST ANOTHER WAY YOU ABUSE YOUR POWER. PAYING NON PROFITS TO DEFEND YOU PUBLICALLY, AND DON'T FORGET THAT KISS ASS TEACHER THAT GOT DEMOTTED FROM HIS POSITION FOR SPEAKING ON YOUR BEHALF....I KNOW HE GOT WHAT HE WANTED. REALLY LETICIA, CALLING PEOPLE UP ON THE PHONE SAYING "PLEASE COME AND DEFEND ME AND I'LL MAKE IT WORTH IT TO YOU!"

You're all talk bitch. Sounds to me like Letty offered you something and she didn't come through. Sorry but even if Letty wanted to give you a job she wouldn't be able to help you. Did she promise to make your backround dissappear? Did she promise you a job? How much money did you think she would offer you to stop the recall? Did you think because you have fucked half the city people would follow you. You are a no good lying bitch.

To the comment Oct. 8th 3:36 PM
Regarding the council deputies cost.
The cost is $114,000.00 not icluding PerDiem or costs for insurance gas, meals, and more.
These so called deputies are in addition to the 2 existing staff positions that are alrady in the pay-roll.
So get your facts and don't try to mislead the Lynwood Tax payers
Who ever you are.
I have opossed those them positions al along.
Desde el principio la esposa del manager Enrique se los trajo ala mesa y los consejales se ipresionaron disiendo que ahorraian dinero que seria mas barato porque supuestamente cotaria menos que las dos personas que ya exitian y los evan ha remplazar y que fue lo que paso'
Se quedaron con las dos posiciones y aumentaron a los hasitentes DOBLANDO el COSTO.

There were 5 votes in favor,
and according to the city manager Enrique Martinez the deputies are doing a good job. On behave of coucil mebers.

Save our homes, Vote YES on Prop 90 this also willl take away contributions for re-election/election and will eliminate brivery from developers!!

Thanks for correcting my grammar,
the point is I tell you like it is
No Compadres in city council!!

Do your homework on Prop 90 Sal. Even the entity you work for is opposing this prop. The part of eminant domain is not the problem, the problem is the other consequences it will bring. The state that already has it in place has opened the flood gates of law suits against local goverment. This will and has bankrupt local governments. The people funding this prop are attorneys from New York. Don't be fooled by the scare tactic of Save Our Homes because the council will use condemnation in the place of eminent domain. In other words if the government wants your home they will get it.

First of all a public or state agency coun't take a position on any Proposition or Measure that is brought to the California voters.
The fact that an environmental group oposes it does not mean that the California EPA takes a side it is a tax payers funded institution and therefore could not take a position.

Read SEC. 3 article (e)
Nothing in this section shall prohibit the use of condemnation powers to abait nuisanses such as blight, obsenity, pornography, hazardous, substances or environmental conditions, provided those comdemnations are limited to abatement of specific conditions on specific parsels and quote!
It will make it more expesive yes for sate and local governments to take away your property because they will have to pay for litigation and a jury will deside at the end.
As it is now in Lynwood 5 CLOWNS get together get 3 votes and is done, they will determine the "JUST COST/Market Value" of your property and you can fight it that is if you have money to do it.
With this Prop. it will be the HIGHEST MARKET VALUE.
It will prohibit the BIGGER FISH EAT the Litlle fish (small business) They will have to let you know with planty time in advance.
Now explaine the relation of Firefighters and Law Enforcement
and how they benefit by keeping this Eminent Domain the way it is?

I have been having these mixed feelings on what to believe nowadays. Sometimes I think the City Manager is really good for Lynwood but when I hear comments about him, I get confused. Please tell me where to get the facts.

Anonymous said...

For information and sources of information anybody can check out about the City Manager look under the comments that are below the article about the recall effort of the Mayor and the Mayor ProTem.

Anonymous said...

I went to the city and checked. The duputies receive $400 per week each, before taxes. That doesn't work out to $100,000 a year even if all five council members had a deputy and only two have them and that is allowed by the city. This was all covered at a recent City Council meeting for the public's information. For a City Council member to have a $400 a week deputy, especially when they have no secretaries to handle their calls or appointments is a rediculous bargin for the city. As an example the City Manager needed TWO assistant City Managers and he earns near or over $200,000 per year by himself, besides he even married one of those assistants and the City Council members earn less than $40,000 per year and the Ciity Council voted to cut their own salaries down from nearly $100,000 per year. As an example, one of the people behind this entire recall nonsense worked for the election of the current mayor and fully expected a city job with a large salary in return. When she learned she was not going to be given a large salary and that job, she became enraged and started this entire recall nonsense. Now you know. Why she uses sych filthy language in this blog is beyond me. It must be her upbringing and educational level.

Lisa P. said...

Oh, we stand corrected! What a big freakin' sacrifice by our poor council to cut salaries of $100,000 for a part-time job!

$40,000 is still ridiculously WAY OVER what even large local city councils make!

AND Get off Sylvia's back! ANYONE can start a recall for any reason, at anytime. If people end up supporting her cause, that's the will of the people.

It is not for YOU to judge.
THIS IS AMERCIA!

If I want to recall the good Rev. Alfreaky (not a misspelling) Johnson because I don't like his pimp suits, THATS MY RIGHT. If you dont like it, don't sign the petition. Real simple.

Anonymous said...

Got racism much???? Pimp suits?? The racial overtones of your views sure come through loud and clear. Boy, you would certainly make a great councilperson, not! I can see the city council meetings, "If you are black or asian you can sit down and do without because you aren't getting anything."

Besides, this recall is dying faster than the one BIG proponent's political ambitions. Your franticness over the fact that this recall is not going to happen is there in the posts on this subject that you and the few other proponents make and this is absolutely the last time even the other few whackos will listen to you.

Lisa said...

Dear Mr./Ms. ANONYMOUS above:

Oh, here we go again.
"Let me play the race card."

The depths of Lynwood morons just amazes me. How ignorant can you be? What part of recalling a black AND a latino council person BY blacks and Latinos, is racist?

The point being made was that a person can recall ANYONE (black, latino, martian) at ANYTIME (tuesday, friday, saturday)for
ANY reason (ugly suits, corrution, bad breath)! If you don't like it, get your fat ass up (was that racist?) and tell your friends not to sign the petition! Real simple.

Thats part of being AMERICAN.

Come to think of it...you are right! I am prejudice...AGAINST FREAKIN' MORONS!

To the responder who acts so innocent.. You said "What part of recalling a black AND a latino council person BY blacks and Latinos, is racist?" Yet, my point never said recalling someone was a racist act and you know that, yet once again you tried to divert attention away from yourself and your bigotry. Your blind hatred and prejudice are so apparent and you desperately try and keep people from seeing that ugly hatred and you even fail at that. What I accused you of specifically was attacking Councilperson Johnson because of his pimpsuits? You avoid the question, but your racism leaks out like an overfull toxic waste dump. You fool no one, you are right, you can try and recall a councilperson for no reason and you certainly suffer from a lot of " "No reason" and a bit of "Not much logic" as well. You wear your hatred of just about everyone like a hairlip and it makes you ugly inside. No one with any sense would allow you to BS them into signing your self serving recall petion. I am afraid we could wind up with someone like you on the council if I signed it. Of course you have the right to you own personal insanity and hatred, it is just that the rest of us have the right to ignore you and we do most of the time.

Have you ever met me? You must be my neighobor or something because you sure make a lot of bold statements about me! You must know my friends, family, neighbors and in-laws to make such judgements.

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH (just trying to fill my response with BS like yours)

I'm a racist 'cause I don't like what someone wears?

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

Maybe I should have commented on the Mayor's light blue jumpsuit she wore to a council meeting. Looked like she was going parachuting. Is that racist too? Or just when I make a fashion comment about a non-Latino.

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

Please enlighten me with your fashion police conduct rules.

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

AND you sure used your "right to ignore" me by spending so much time writing a response to me.

BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

I am also prejudice against dummies and non-sensical cry babies.

PS - Sleep good tonight knowing that I wouldnt be a councilperson, even for the old salary. Having nasty potshots taken at me and my family from all you brave ANONYMOUS protectors of Lynwood is not my cup of tea!

Oops, I apologize to my asian and english friends for the tea comment.

So if a latino wears a "pimpsuit" it is no longer a "pimpsuit"?

So if I let my black friend wear my Nikes, they are magically not Nikes anymore?

Damn! I missed the Race Card 101 class in college.

A pimpsuit suit is a pimpsuit is a pimpsuit no matter who wears it!

Lady your full os shit. I am as Mexican as they come and I wear pimp suits all the time. Even the Alfreddie makes fun of himself so get over it lady. If you are going to be offended by using pimp suit have it be because you are basically being called a pimp. You know the boss of the hookers. But for usa as men that's a compliment. You know Big Pimpin spending cheese. Get over it. You're probably old.

The option from city council to fight crime is to send J.D. Whitaker on sundays to Long Beach Blvd from 5 to 9 P.M. Problem is that the vandalism and real crime activity starts at 11:00P.M. to 3:A.M. those businesses and neighbors are suffering pure hell, specially in front of the teen challenge parking lot. Let the city manager and council live in Disneyland while the city goes down.
