Planning Commission Chair Victor Gomez Lies About Residency

Lynwood, CA – Victor Gomez, currently the chair for the Planning Commission, and appointed by current Mayor Pro Tem Fernando Pedroza, has deceived Lynwood residents and fellow commissioners in believing he lives in Lynwood.

Each commissioner must follow the following codes

1) Must be resident of the City – not holding a position for which the City pays compensation

2) Commissioner maybe removed at any time by the Mayor without cause

4) Three (3) absences within a twelve (12) month period shall constitute a vacating of the position.
