Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

For those who think that this project is good for the community think about how many families your selfish ass will be sacrificing. All for a freaking shopping center and football stadium that can't even be guaranteed. Remember that to use eminent domain the project must be for the public use and benefit of Lynwood residents and must be blighted. Is a brand new school blighted? Maybe some of us will get a job their but the reality is we won't. The people relocated also won't because chances are they already have a job. Don't be fooled people.

This Monday October 30th an informative community meeting will be hosted by Mr Jose Luis Solache at Marco Antonio Firebaugh High School located on MLK. The meeting will begin at 6pm. If you live in the area where the proposed NFL/Stadium and Power Center will be built it is a must that you attend this meeting. The developer will be hosting his meeting Wednesday November 1st at Bateman Hall 5:30pm. Join your neighbors, local business owners, and local community leaders in their efforts. Don't miss your opportunity to be heard.

IT IS CAMPAIGN TIME!!Let all candidates prepare to make a big deal out of nothing.If you don't live in the area, why bother? Did the people ask you to represent them? DO YOU THINK THEY ARE NOT CAPABLE OF REPRESENTING THEMSELVES?
Do not insult these residents, let them find out what is happening without your misinformation.

Anonymous said...

what does castro or solache know about the development? do they want to appear as community leaders? come on, give it up. solache, you are done...castro, you will never get out the gate...

Aide Castro said...

To answer your question, yes I was asked to help. Yes I do live in the area. Please don't make this an issue about campaign or whether you like me or not. Your neighbors/fellow residents are asking for your help. Mr Solache is getting involved to protect the schools he represents. No one is making a big deal out of nothing. The residents want to make sure they are informed early on the process to avoid being taken advantage of. Some simply just want to know how to stop the process.

Will the "Wicked Witch of the East" be there with her husband begging for their share of the tax payers' food? She claims to not believe in Halloween, but had her Witch hunt boots on Thursday night.

Three or more councilmembers meeting at a restaurant without public notice that a council meeting is taking place, is illegal. I hope the community is paying attention and demand that the city council obey the law.

Anonymous said...

And people still have the nerve to say the council doesn't need to be recalled. The city manager needs to go also. He knows it's his responsibility to make sure these type of things don't happen. The city manager in Rialto did his job by turning in corrupt city council to the authorities. Our city manager won't because he is just as corrupt.

"Wicked Witch of the East" causes trouble for employees in all departments. Snooping around like Lynwood's Watchdog, and begging for coffee or tea or anything for free.One guess..........Oh yes, she stinks.....

Who is the "Wicked Witch"?

Anonymous said...

Well, it can't be Andrea (she stinks, but doesn't have a husband) it can't be Maria or Leticia (they don't stink, but they don't have husbands). Who is the wicked witch? And when did we get a Redevelopment Director? I've been in those offices several times, and the only one I've seen is the new Housing Manager.

Anonymous said...

I think the new Housing Manager came 3 weeks ago. I hope she is good and we are able to get grants again. The wicked witch has to be Mrs. Calderon because she stinks and is always running up to me hugging on me. I don't want to tell her to back off because she is nice, but she is a pest.

Where's the D.A.'s Public Integrity Division? Off course, sleeping on the job.

They have easy cases here in Lynwood. All this darn corruption, nepotism a reverend Clownsil member who thinks he's the prez of Lynwood.

A Mexican American Clowncil member who thinks she's black.

A newly surgically refursbished Clownsil woman who spends more than she legally earns.

Al old black former teacher who was promised "opportunity" by a former partner in crime who is doing hard time in a federal prison.

A latino horn-dog Clowsil member who has hairy palms. Who recently took care of his in law family business by cutting a backroom deal with the other croocked Clownsil members.

"You vote on my sweet heart deal and I'll vote for your development and your daddy's contract"

And who gets it in the behind again, the poor Lynwood rate and tax payer.

Hey D.A. man wake up!

Lynwood residents could use a hand here please!!!!!!

It's time again for Council reorganization. Mayor and Mayor Pro Term.
Guess who was part of commitee to select the two Towing Truck companies? from South Gate actually one from Lynwood, paying taxes in South gate.
YES YES Maria Santillan!! did she made a deal with Fernando for a vote for Mayor or it's just a coicidance judge for your selves
We need more details about the meeting where 4 council members met.

Lynwood Watch Dog!

I heard that Mr. Byrd wants to be Mayor. He was the only one who would appoint the witch back on traffic and parking. We may need to question his judgement.She is always complaining about council and then show up at their houses without calling. I heard she doesn't know when to go home once she is let inside.

Anonymous said...

Forget Mrs. Calderon, everyone knows she is ignorant and doesn't really understand what is going on. We need to know when the DA is coming to clean up our city. Council is doing too much and this power center idea needs to be stopped right now. Make sure you attend the meeting at the high school on Monday. Tell that lady we will have food for her and her husband.We need people to come & listen.

People please don't forget about tonight's meeting. 6pm at Firebaugh High School. Come inform yourself on the process. Don't wait till it's to late. The NFL is not inyerested in the city of Lynwood. This is a scam the developer and Alfredie have put together to get access to the big lots in that area. Taking homes, businesses, and schools for new businesses and homes makes no sense.

Anonymous said...

Everyone in that area should be at tonight's meeting. Channel 34 has already interviewed some of the folks that reside in the East Side. Even if you don't live in that area, you should be very concerned about how business City business is being conducted (Behind Closed Doors).

Please prove that this meeting occurred. Can you even find one source that can testify to this? Probably not, because the alleged meeting never happened!

It's a really state of affairs that this sneaky so-called deal is being put on the innocent citizens & homeowner's of our fair city. I'm sure they have made very sure that the L.A. Times or any of the major TV channels didn't get word of it cause "NONE" of them were at the Town Hall meeting held on Monday, Oct. 30th. I am going to make sure they are informed of the next meeting by calling all of them so we can get the real story behind these so-called Investor's.
The people must get involved or this will just be a bad story if they aren't stopped immediately.

Anonymous said...

If you're looking for proof that this meeting took place, pick up a copy of the Lynwood Press. The Developer CONFIRMED that this meeting took place. The Lynwood Press reporter took a statement from the Developer. If your looking for a person to confirm the meeting, just ask the City Manager, he was there, or ask the Redevelopment Director, aka, Casper the Ghost, because he was there too! Come on people, these Councilmembers and new Lynwood Management think that they are above the law!

Channel 34 was there and they last night. I saw the report, live.

Yes, get more channels out there. This is very important, even if you don't live in the area where the project is, YOU WILL BE AFFECTED.

To the residents that made it last night. Congratulations! Make sure you show up Wednesday and bring the rest of the block.

Remember, the developer will try to convince you and of course the Mayor and Vice Mayor will try to say that last nights information were all lies.

Vasquez last night said, "there was no ENA". Who is she trying to fool. Folks, Vasquez thinks you are stupid. That's exactly what I think when she tries to make me believe there is no ENA when I sat in the audience and heard the vote!
The council has discussed this twice and the vote for the ENA has been a 4-0 both times.

Vasquez, that's why I can't stand you. YOU ARE A LIER.

Anonymous said...

ooopps, LIAR! LIAR!

Anonymous said...

You don't understand. They voted to give the developer an ENA but it has to be signed before it goes into effect. Right now it has not been signed. Call the redevelopment dept. & have them explain it to you. The Mayor did not lie, it has not been signed. There is no ENA. Don't spread wrong information, it makes all of you look bad.

Anonymous said...

What you don't understand is that this is not the first time Leticia tries to plays tricks with not signing a document even after it's been approved. The vote was taken to approve an ENA. If she doesn't sign it then the Mayor Pro Tem will. If it isn't him any other council member can also do it.

Let me ask you this. If the ENA is not approved why is it that the council simply just says okay we won't do the project? The fact is that they are working with staff to push this project. ENA or not this project is a fact. No one was misinformed last night. The council got caught red handed simple as that. The council did not expect us to organize the way we did. We are simply saying thanks but no thanks. The council is just mad because we are doing this early enough to stop them before it is to late. Signed or not she approved it with her vote. It goes to prove what a snake she is by trying to find a loop whole to get herself out of trouble.

Or borrow from your friends and never pay them back. That is Maria's way of life.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, we saw Arturo the other day and we asked him if he ever got his money back from Maria Santillan. He said no. We looked closely at Maria. She has a little hole on her chin where they suck sucked out the double chin. I still see a double chin. Maybe Arturo is right, she should get her money back because she still looks the same.

Anonymous said...

Council keeps trying to say they are not doing anything behind anyone but yet they meet at City Hall (Johnson, Pedroza, Vasquez & Byrd) behind closed doors.

Did anyone notice the new project? The one called The RAJ Estates (200 to 300 homes)? RAJ means, Reverend Alfreddie Johnson. How stupid can he be to have his personal assistant type this up and circulated it to 700 residents.

FERNANDO HOW MUCH DID YOU GET UNDER THE TABLE TO SUPPORT THIS PROJECT

Anonymous said...

You are right, Maria Santillan despite the surgery still has a double chin and still looks chubby/fat. Maybe its the clothes. She needs to invest in clothes that will highlight all the nip/tuck areas.

You want to imitate her? I feel sorry for you; anyone who wants to follow her example is a deadbeat.

Double chin, tummy roll (lipo), boobies (implants). What's next for Maria Santillan? Butt implants because that are flat.

I would like to know at what restaurant did they meet?

Rumor has it they have been seen at Malverde.

Anonymous said...

We just got back from the council meeting, what a cicus. Now the women that run that restaurant (Malverde) got the right kind of lipo, and boob implants and it shows. They look hot. Maria Santillan's work lacks luster. She still looks like a senora chaqualota. Arturo Reyes is right she needs to go back to either get her money back or have the work re-done. Better yet, she should just pay Arturo back.

so does anyone know what happened on the meeting on Tuesday?

The resolution to oppose any schools being taken for a project was passed and approved by a vote of 5-0.

Anonymous said...

Who cares about the school board, lets go back to talking about Maria's nalgas, Leticia's no ass, and Aide's parrot nose and messed up teeth. They could all be fixed but according to Arturo Reyes don't go to Maria's surgeon.

Anonymous said...

I met Aide she doesn't have a parrot nose. She is fine as hell with a body to kill for. I'll kill for it. Maria looks good to. It must be a woman writting these dum comments because both Maria and Aide are fine. Maria might be a little chunkier but the surgeries made a difference. Remember she is getting old people. Leticia is just plain fucking ugly. But her boobies are great. I guess God had to give her something to work with.

AJ REA said...

Yeah how informative was this meeting. HAHA Freakin spanish spoken left n'right. So ummm....could we look like little TJ or what?

Anonymous said...

That's right AJ, I'm not a Spanish speaker either, and if those people that can't or don't or won't learn English are bothered by the laws in the United States and angry and upset over eminent domain, ask them why they don't pack up and go home or better yet, how would they feel if the US had similar laws like Mexico which prohibit non-citizens from owning property? Think about it.

Hey AJ if you attended the meeting you would of known that both languages were spoken. Oh wait a minute you must be forgetting you are a Mexican too. Or are you like your dad only claiming to be a Mexican when it is to your convenience.

AJ REA said...

No actually were not mexican haha and who cares about ethnicity. I'm American u moron! Other than that are ethnicity is spanish, and as for me I'm a mut. So what's to it? Lol. Other than that I have asked y done they pack up n' go!? Lets see, better jobs, its basically America as it is, who doesnt want to live here? Everyone wants to come to the states no matter what country u r from. Trust me I've been to a crap load of countries and everyone wants to be or live here. Oh and by the way! I speak spanish. I choose to hear english, just like I choose to watch english spoken television. Maybe because the media is alot more advanced here in the states.

You are truly showing how stupid you are. You don't speak spanish, you told me yourself. If you really did travel the world you did it on your dad's council money that he stold. Have you ever found out why your dad got kicked out of the sherriff. I do. If ypu did you would be hiding of shame. So shut the fuck up. By the way the media is the same everywhere you damn idiot. By the way is working in fucking hotel a better job? Are you that stupid?
