It was an embarrassing moment last night to know that we have four council members that DO NOT respect our community. It does not matter how much “power” you have, but there is no reason to speak to your community the way they did last night. They should be ashamed of how they treated us. It was very clear that the community does not want this proposed project. The developer also was extremely rude to all the residents of this community. This community has finally awakened and we will no longer take all the B.S. from the council. Thank you to councilwomen Santillan. She was the only member of 5 that supports this community. WE WILL NOT FORGET!!!!!

P.S. Remember it was 100’s of people that have realize how you treat this hardworking, humble community.

P.S. WE WILL NOT SELL!!!!!!!!!!!

I was very proud to see the community come together . I saw people who would never be in the same room together or in agreement on any issue. For once maybe the leaders can finally give respect to one another and join forces to rid our city of these heartless council members. A friend told me that she was in the parking lot when Leticia and Johnson left. She says that Leticia and Johnson were laughing and said to one another "looks like we pissed them off this time" as they continue to laugh . How dare these two make jokes about the worried and conerned residents. Please join forces with me to recall these two disrespectfull people. How humiliating was it to see Leticia and Johnson get hissed and heckeled by over 300 residents. Christmas came early for me!!!! They deserve nothing less then to be heckled and thrown out of our city. Without Vasquez and Johnson there is NO PROJECT!!! sEE YOU AT YOUR DOORSTEP VERY SOON. Sylvia Ortiz

Sylvia, all four of them disrespected us. Why do you continue to say only two are being recalled. They are all doing the same things.

Anonymous said...

The process has already begun for two, I don't see why she should start all over.

It's not that easy to get four signatures from a resident. I think Sylvia would get better results if she continues working on these two (Vasquez/Johnson). Remember it's one recall petition for each elected official.

I know that other folks are willing to help, if nothing is changed by next Tuesday.

YES! Even Byrd screamed at us....Mr.Byrd needs to retire and spend the rest of his life in Vegas....Fernando, well he has no guts to stand up for us. It's very clear that he supports the developer ($$$$$$$)

Please start counting your days of being in office....

Anonymous said...

I don't think that Byrd has a chance this November. So don't spend your time getting signatures for him.

As far as Fernando goes, if Byrd is gone he really doesn't have anyone else. Leticia and Fernando will never be able to see eye to eye and Johnson will be gone by September.

I must admit that the highlight of the night was when the developer called Alex Landeros an extortionist! That was the only truth that came out of the developers mouth. He showed a couple of people a check payable to Alex.

Alex calls Fernando a pancake, because Fernando flip flops. I will call Alex a tortilla.

Beware of Alex Landeros. Don't trust him.

The NFL announced two weeks ago that they are bailing on the Los Angeles area. Reason: LA doesnt want to give up tax dollars for the project.

Who is the developer saying is going to be housed at our NFL-less stadium?

My kid's flag football team? Leticia's town hall meetings for 10 people? Raul's tow trucks? Alfreddy's Scientology meetings?

WHY ARE WE PURSUING THIS PROJECT?

I asnt at the meeting. SERIOUSLY, was this subject mentioned?

Not to get off the subject, but I just want to point out that there have been 16 posts to this headline and not one mention of RACISTS or of the stupid a$$ comments that are typical of this blog.

This is what the blog is supposed to be. Good ol' American debate!Finally! Good Job posters and bloggers!

Alex said it before, he'll take some money but he will leave some for the rest. He take his cut but he's not greedy.

To all the people who are about to loose their homes.

Start hiring a lawyer and do a class action suit, against the developer, and the city of Lynwood.

The greater common good is at stake.

If enough people join the suit, the judges will rule against emminent domain.

Protesting and screaming at the city council is a waste of time.

It's obvious they're in the pockets of the developer.

The other option is to commit organize and see Sylvia Ortiz.

I'm personally committed to collecting 250 signatures against Johnson and Vasquez.

If 20 homeowners committ to do the same. They can be gone in less than 6 months.

And if the new Councilmembers continue their crap, they can be out.

"La raza unida jamas serĂ¡ vencida"!!!!

They are trying to push this project very fast, because they know that the recall will go through.

Nor more screaming, action is necessary!

Collect signatures ASAP!

Otherwise, start packing your belongings, 'cause you're moving soon.

Sylvia Ortiz can be contacted for any info regarding the recall. She will let us know as soon as the petition is certified and ready to circualte to collect signatures. God has blessed our efforts this time. I think he ment for us to fail last time. He wanted us to get Alfredie out also.

Where is the Redevelopment Department in all of this? Rawlings, Rita, Bruno etc.

So where are they going to build? On top of their homes!

I agree with the previous comment WHERE IS THE REDEVELOPMEMT DEPARTMENT IN ALL OF THIS?? Many of us residents have gone in to talk to the Director and they keep telling us that he is not in. All of my neighbors are saying that they have left messages for someone named Olivia, but she has never returned any calls, who the hell is she anyway? Obviously not someone that cares about the community, otherwise she would have the decency to return a phone call. I think they just made up the person so that they can avoid talking to TAXPAYING residents that pay their salary. We see the same faces when we go in for information, and even Bruno can't be expected to carry the entire department. And Rida doesn't even work in Redevelopment anymore. What's with the whole cover-up?

And where is the City Mis-Manager? El Chaparito Martinez he's not talking either.

To all the residents in Lynwood, I am a hispanic woman who fought eminent domain in a nieghboring SANCTUARY city and won. Keep fighting, keep screaming and keep demanding the respect you deserve and you will win. You must understand that they will lie, cheat and try to take your homes away from you. The council members in Lynwood especially the vice mayor is in it only for the money not for your benefit. When they ask him questions about the project "se hace pendejo, que no sabe o no puede decirles", he replys with I don't know or I can't tell you where the schools will be relocated. Que Baboso, he can't tell you because he's lying. He is in it for personal gain, not for the betterment of the community. You must keep fighting together united and when you think you can't fight anymore, then REMEMBER that you bought these homes with your sweat, your sacrafice, your hard earned money to make a better life for your children. And now these rich money grubbers want to take it all away from you. Know that what ever amount they offer you will not be enough. They will only offer you what they SAY your home is worth. They will not take into consideration all the expenses of having to move or the expenses of starting over. God only knows where they will send you. If you are an older person and your home is fully paid for, starting over for you will be the hardest. The developers will not care. The rich get richer off of the backs of the poor & middle class. They think you will lay down and let them step on & over you. Stick together, look for civil rights leaders that will fight with you. Find every piece of information that you can. Use that information to fight. For those of you that rent and think that this is a way to get rich, know this, In the FIRST case of eminent domain that passed in my city, many tenants reported that apartment owners kept the money for themselves and harrassed the tenants and evicted them with out giving them a penny. We learned from that first mistake and fought the second time they tried to pass eminent domain and we won. Si se puede. Do not give away your homes to the rich. What is your sacrafice, time & labor worth too you? Because to them it is worth nothing. No regalen a los ricos lo que ustedes compraron con mucho sacrficio.

Lynwood Residents....

I am also a Hispanic resident who agree's with the last comment posted. The City of Lynwood Council Memebers are there for the $,and not to mention the liar's they are.
Think about why did't Leticia, send out a city flyer to all residents of Lynwood that would be affected if it was nothing like she said and if you was close enough to the City Hall door on the day of the meeting .... she said; "It's all just a rumor & handed out a paper with more lie's" Leticia & everyone else in the City Counsil must think that our whole comunity are "Pendejos" If they were able to proptly get this letter together to back us off from their $$ plan(that's nothing!) why could't they have send this same paper to all residents of Lynwood?
My point is that all Lynwood residents have to fight this with all we got because no else will fight for us.

This is not just a Hispanic thing! This affects everyone. Please don't make it a Latino thing, we need to include everyone without mentioning race.

The residents that spoke Tuesday were:
men & women
young & old
latinos, caucasions and blacks

That's exactly what you're waiting for Leticia. But were going to fight you and the Rev until this project is stopped.

There is no project. The dumming council made enemies for nothing and now it is going to cost them. The City Manager is laughing his ass off for making fools of the council in this entire process. He brought the rope and let the council hang themselves.

Whats up with the Redevelopment Department. We can't can't get a call back to our inquiries regarding the Stadium or any other projects. We just learned that Big Butt Rita has been moved out of Redevelopment. What gives, where did she go and why? Redevelopment seems to be a joke, we have have had three Directors since 2005. This is a reflection of the lack of knowledge of the City Manager in the field of redevelopment and all the staff that he has brought in, what has happened, how much money has been paid out to directors and staff in general since the current City Manager has been brought in? Rollie Pollie Rita was the only one that would return our calls when we called in for information in the Redevelopment Department. Now there is a another chunky girl in Redevelopment by the name of Olivia that just does not return phone calls. What happened to the good old days in redevelopment. I recall in 2003 three shopping centers had grand openings.

You mean FATT _SS? She should talk to Maria T. Santillan about lipo. I bet La Gorda hates Maria for all the work she can afford now. Too bad for you Rita.

Lets be nice. Rita done hurt nobody. Someone's appearance (fat, ugly, etc.)should not be the bar that that person is measured. I am sure she is a nice person despite her appearance.
