City Manager to be Discussed in Closed Session

Lynwood, CA – During the council meeting held January 2, 2007, two people allegedly tied to Imperial Partners, inc asked for the City Manager’s resignation. On a move that many consider an attempt to disarm opponents of the Lynwood Promenade, the Lynwood City Council has placed the position of City Manager in the agenda for the next council meeting which will be held January 16, 2006. Historically, when the position of City Manager has been placed in closed session agenda, a new City Manager is appointed.

It is alleged that Byrd, Johnson, and Pedroza want to fire Martinez because of his inability to move [their] projects forward. Critics argue that a new City Manager, more attuned to the new majority will move the Lynwood Promenade, and other projects onward.

Maybe the Council will do something right this time and FIRE THE CITY MANAGER for being incompetent. How many cities has El Chaparrito Feo worked for? He can't keep a job anywhere.

I am a City employee and have worked here for many years. I have gone through four City Managers and he is the best one we've had.

C'mon, you know that City Managers and City Attorney's come and go, but at least this one makes every lazy ass work.

You and I know that Council can not manipulate him. The majority of the council want someone they can manipulate. El Chaparrito, is not going to allow that.

Plus, who will they put? Lorry Hempe or Little Albert Robles. PLEASE!

If the Feo won't do what the Council tells him to do. I guess he's getting fired, again. What a dumb ass. He can't even hold a job.

He is not about to go to jail for a stupid move. He is not about to ruin his reputation for some stupid councilmembers that want to move illegal projects through!

Feo, pero muy inteligente. Antes de que Fernando se lo chingue al el, el lla se lo chingo!

What reputation? The one that he's a dumb ass? Can't hold a job? Why doesn't he go back to lair he came from? He's a disgrace to latinos. He's no credit to his people.

I heard the City Manager was crying this morning. He doesn't know what to do or where there's an opening at another city.

Severance package or not, no one likes getting the boot and it is not a nice feeling. Unfortunately, this City Manager was a good fit for Lynwood. Look at how much money he has spent and his approach to things. Always hiring consultants expaning the payroll. El Chaparro has to be let go. It will be costly but it has to be done sooner than later.

Once again Lynwood will be the laughing stock of Los Angeles County. This corrupt city can't afford to have a professional City Manager who wants people to work, what a concept! In the end it's us, the taxpayers who always loose because of corrupt politicians like "Fernie the Pervie" and the "Compton Boys".

These Macho Men should keep the city business to the professionals, and stay out of the way, but no their "handlers" wouldn't get their way now would they?

Keep the recall going...let's have a recall signature party on the street in front of "Fernie's" house so all his neighbors are reminded of what a pervert he is!

I love the recall party infront of Fernie the Pervie's house. We can make a big sign that shows the porno movies, another one that shows his extensive traveling, including the trip to china, the towing contract, and the Lynwood Fiasco Promenade.

Aide, you're the one who should organize it. This will show us which side you're truly on. Then we can organize a recall party in each of the other councilmember's streets.

Has anybody sent the scientology members information about the corrupt gangsta reverend scary johnson? Every one of them should one what type of corrupt individuals they have among their ranks.

Regarding Martinez, he has to go. PERIOD. He is costing the City a lot of money. But before he goes, the public integrity division should investigate him and prosecute him for hiring an employee that didn't rank amongst the top, and later married her. It is obvious that he planned it all along. That's his crime, and he should pay for it.

As someone who is working on the recall I would like to ask for a favor. Please don't make fun of our efforts. I would also like to ask that Aide not be ask to go against her family. She is already in a tough situation. She has already proven herself. The only thing we must focus on is the recall. And by that I mean collect the signatures we need and that's it. Anyone looking to sign the petition can go straight to ACE hardware on Atlantic. This recall belongs to the community and no one else. No special interest. No loosing candidates. Simply a bunch of pissed of residents.

We are not asking you to go against her family. Aide you have made the choice to get involved in politics, not us. You have to prove yourself to the community; the only thing that we asking is the same thing that we ask from everybody else who wants to be in a leadership position. We are not at fault that you and your cousin are corrupt to the bone.

Aide doesn't care, she is an opportunist and will do anything to get elected. Don't be fooled

Anonymous said...

I don't see the problem. Didn't Aide pay the fees for the recall? What is the problem then?
Having a recall drive infront of councilmembers houses is not a bad idea. It'll only show that we are serious and determined to get them out. If they are willing to take away our homes, and displace our families, if they don't care about displacing seniors, and children,families that have been there for over 20 years, why should we care what their families think?
This is the United States, and this is democracy. We have every right to make a recall drive at any Lynwood street; that of course means doing it within the law, and with respect to all residents in the area.
Showing people why we want to get them out of office really shouldn't be an issue. I don't think it is against the law to have a couple of sings showing the community their wrong doings.
Once again, Aide has proven herself by leading the recall, paying for it, and I'm sure she won't mind doing a recall drive, even if it means doing it at her cousin's street.
She's a big girl, she knew what she was getting into.

is that you Alicia from the city managers office. it sure sounds like you. I know your defending him because you are his little puppet. you dont want him to go because you get your ways with him. plus he like to help you and your lasy husband Rigo.

One thing i learn is that the city manager is not what he says he is and does what he said he wouldnt do. he only helps the people that he likes and the people that kiss his ass. he said he would only promote within. but we all know that he only promotes you husband Rigo when you know he never deserve it. I know my writing is not that good but at least i know its alot better than Rigo´s. we all know he´s a dumbass that cant read or write english. this is why i cant understand why he is a supervisor.

Anonymous said...

As a proponent of this recall let me make something crystal clear for everyone. This recall is led by the us the proponents and only us. We do not want Aide nor Ramon leading this recall. We want this to be a community effort. Both Aide and Ramon have assisted us with help and guidance as we have requested. We will never ask any candidate to do anything they don't feel comfortable doing. We will not be fighting any political battles that have been going on. If you have a problem with any of the council members simply sign the petition and shut up. It really makes me wonder what kind of people you guys are by wanting to basically kick someone when they are already down. Have any of you considered the family members of these council members. Leave their families out of it. How would any of you like it if I was recalling you, then I decide to throw a party in your street so that your wife and children can see what I'm doing. You tell me why children need to suffer any humiliation of an adults decision? We are doing this recall simply to replace bad leaders with good ones. We want someone who will think of us the homeowners before approving any proposal. This council had the opportunity to cancel this project completely on January 2nd and they didn't. We understand that we would have been sued, but we were willing to deal with it. What we are not willing to do is live our lives for the next few years wondering if the council will negotiate in our best interest when they have already proven that they won't.

If this is Alicia speaking then she must be telling on herself. I hope she has better sense to speak about lazy employees being made to work, when she is considered one of the most overpaid and laziest employees within the whole organization.

She is too busy running around sniffing Laura's butt, that she dismisses her duties as the executive assistant to the city manager,just to be liked while trying to live through the shadow of someone else. Isn't about time you get your own identity.

The moment Aide chose public life, she chose to be judge. We are all judges, and this is the American way, we love to make politicians, and then we love to tear them apart.

The only reason Rigo has moved up the ranks is because he is Alicia´s husband. We all know he doesnt deserve to be where he´s at. Just like she doesnt deserve to be where she´s at. Alicia has moved up by doing some serious a$$ kissing and Rigo by likin El Chaparritos balls.

but to think for someone that doesnt even have a high school diploma or a GED and become a supervisor, you know something must be wrong.....there must be some serious a$$ kissing or Ball likin´.

Alicia we know what your all about and what you are doin.....no one at the city hall likes you or your inept husband so please do us all a favor and stop kissing Enrique, Laura, and Autra´s A$$es.

I cant believe you have to nerve to say that this has been the best city manager we´ve had....is that because he´s promoted you and your husband. or is it because you r part of the magical circle of I´M TO GOOD FOR EVERYONE ELSE.

I would like 4 everyone to sing along with me please......

I´m not trying to defend Aide in any way. As a matter a fact, I have critisized her tremendously.

You might be right about Aide having a GED and not a High School Diploma, but at least she has some smarts and carries herself as a professional. On the other hand, Rigo is lazy and a major Dumba$$ with no common sence, no education, and no self respect.

Rigo is nothing but a pervert, just like Fernie the Pervie. I always see him driving around checking out women and trying to pick up on them. He never works, doesn´t do anything but try to boss the other employees like he was something big in the city.....Poor DumbA$$, he doesn´t know any better, doesn´t know the difference from right n wrong.

By the way, I saw Rigo at the council meeting....was he there because he was trying to lick Enrique´s balls for the last time or was he there to fight against the people that are against his hero and ball likin´ provider Enrique.

I don´t think someone has it out for him. I just think the truth is finally coming out considering that his nut sack Enrique was fired. The employees are simply upset because of all the favoritism Alicia and Rigo got considering they are lazy and dumb. There were other employees that were far more qualified and better than Rigo and he got the supervisor position. Alicia pulled some strings to get him that position.

I've noticed that guy Rigo very quiet lately. The pervert hasn't been checking out women like before. Could it be because his daddy enrique is not around any longer or could it be because he no longer has any power.

Your an idiot. "Enrique is not the man". he was simply a greedy, connaving male chauvanist. That misused his power to try to make up for his low self-esteem. The only reason he was able to sleep with Mariana, sandra, laura, and alicia was because mariana wanted the finance director, sandra wanted the h.r. director, laura wanted the marketing, and alicia wanted him to promote her and her inept husband rigo. He did'nt want to sleep with autra or debra...he just used them to do his dirty work and harrass the people he did'nt want to get involved with. But he knew they are a couple of idiots that do'nt know what there doing!

Reality is enrique was no good for lynwood and I hope he does'nt come back......damn crooked old bastard.....he was spending money the city does'nt have. Council is finally realizeing how corrupt he really was.

I guess he felt he was suppose to have all the cities money since he looks like a "LEPRECHAUN"......."I'm money hungry and I want to become a millionare at the residents expense".

To the above comment...

It might be the case that Enrique does return, but it doesn't rule out the fact that he is a corrupt piece of Sh!t and that he is a sneaky corrupt little bastard.

The only reason he might come back is because I believe he belongs to the chain of "HIGHER POWERS," which includes many corrupt political politicians with alot of influences. This is the reason why he was able to extort money and bring his cronies to work for the city at very high salaries. He knew it was hard for anyone to touch him or fire him.

The only reason I do believe he would come back as the city manager if the recall was to go through is because the same people that brought him in would bring him back if they were to get back into council (Ramon Rodriguez, Aide Castro, and Maria Santillan). Therefore, I am extremely disappointed that he could possibly return when they know without a shadow of a doubt that he is greedy, manipulative, and corrupt.

As a long time resident, I beg you not to bring back:

Anonymous said...

Let me give you a friendly reminder before you start making assumptions. Aide Castro was the one that tried to give the city manager his first write up. I was at the council when she let the city manager have it during public orals. From the beginning she said he was a fraud. I saw her at CVS last week and I asked her what she felt about the city manager being gone. She said she was very happy that he is finally being exposed. But she was concerned about him getting a severance package. She also said that if the city manager was not fired with cause she wouldn't support him being fired. If anything she would bring him back to not pay a severance package and hold him accountable for everything he messed up. Ramon and Maria on the other hand do support him. Why I don't know but could it be that he's the one paying for the recall? Did he pay for Maria and Ramon's campaign? I think he did but who knows really.

Anonymous said...

What fraud? Council put him on leave for 30 days and can not find anything as of today!

They hired an investigator, they are paying Beltran thousands to sit in meetings and orchestrate reasons why they might be able to fire him and he hasn't been successful. Before this is over, the City will have thrown away another $500,000 (half a million).

They don't care, it's not their money! Oh my God, and that looney Finance Director! I hope they don't consider him the new City Manager. He is going to drive the few directors we have, CRAZY.

You are correct about your statement in regards to Aide, she did critisize him during the orals, then again she might have regreted what did after it was said and done, but you also left room in your answer for a "loophole"....meaning that if Aide were to get elected, she could possibly say that there was no grounds for firing him and allow him to return. Furthermore, you stated that she would rather bring him back in order not to pay him his severance package. Well my friend, let me ask you, "why in the hell would she want to bring this corrupt bastard back in the first place after all he's done?

There's no doubt that Enrique did many corrupt and unethical things while he was here...although, that still remains to be proven. He has alot of people fooled into thinking that he was good for lynwood. The way he would cover his corruptness was by harassing the employees and stressing them out, but he was was a hyprocit!!!!

About Enrique funding Rodriguez and Santillan's campaigne, there's no doubt in my mind that there is some sort of involvement between them.....Which is what disappoints me.

It just goes to show that they are all corrupt. I guess its pretty much what they say, "you scratch my back and i'll scratch yours."

I understand that Santillan wants Byrd, Johnson, Pedroza, and Vasquez out, but come on.....all she is doing is aligning herself with someone thats just as bad as they are.

Enrique being behind the recall...."YOU CAN BET YOUR A$$ HE IS." Have you wondered why there hasn't really been any attacks towads Leticia Vasquez lately. Well, thats because she didn't vote to put him on administrative leave....it was Byrd, Johnson, and Pedroza.

Please Santillan and Rodriguez I beg for you guys to distance yourselves from this corrupt piece of Sh!t. He is no good for Lynwood or the community!!!!

The Council should just fire that puny little piece of a man that is referred to as the City Manager without a severance package. Let that little man sue if he feels that he didn't do anything wrong.
