Let's really talk about this? Ramon Rodrigues has not been indicted for doing business with the city. Why?

Maria Santillan voted to give the developer that built her house a contract. Why has she not been indicted?
These are just ONE example of thie corruption.

What's really going on?
I can name many others, bot I'll stop here for now.

Louise Byrd indicted over accepting a salary current councilmembers Rodriguez and Santillan accepted too. Why didn't they get indicted?

Rev. Alfreddie Johnson recalled over lies...

What's really going on in Lynwood?

Who cares? Bradley,Byrd, and Johnson are all crooks. Both professionally and morally. it's a joke that they continue to cry "poor ole black folks" when it has been the Hispanics that have endured more racism and enslavement by the "white man". We just don't go around and whin about it. We're too proud and humble to expect something for nothing. It's been almost a thousand years that the blacks were take from thier motherland. Go back already. There is no place for you here.

Get your facts straight you MORON!
Why would Ramon be indicted? He owns his own store, he had an open account with the city for more than 10 years prior to being elected (which under California State Law is all that is required to continue to do business after you have been elected)he offered substantial discounts to the city on the items that were sold and everything was documented with reciepts! The one that should be indicted is the City of Lynwood under it's previous corrupt regime! WHY?? Because the City never paid their bill!! Rodriguez provided the merchandise, the city took that merchandise, used it, and never paid for it!!! So who is the criminal?

As for Santillan, she bought a house! She put a down payment, she is making payments to a bank, and in another 25 years she will own it! Who cares who built it. Do you know who built your house??? And as far as the homebuilder being given a contract, YES HE WAS!! And do you know why? Because the BONEHEAD that was awarded the original contract by the infamous Paul Richards took the property, never made good on the sweetheart deal he was given, and somebody had to go in and attempt to clean up his mess! Senior Housing with stairs installed upside down, an elevator that didn't work, water heaters without doors. Santillan voted on the lowest and best contract that was submitted through an open bid process.

Louis Byrd was indicted not only for accepting the salary, but for voting on the increase and for scheduling and attending additional bogus meetings in order to double and triple the amount of money that he approved to increase! Side by side with Sanchez and Richards! (the other two of the 2/3 vote!)

And as for Johnson, he was recalled for trying to bring a project into this city that was just too big and too overwhelming for a city of Lynwood's size. And who recalled him?? The same individuals that complain about their streets, their sidewalks, their Sheriff services, their water increase and their trash increase!

Make up your minds. You want to keep your homes, you don't want new progress or development in the city that will take them, but yet you are not willing to accept new development in the city that will provide the sales tax!!! Sorry but something is eventually going to have to give, otherwise, there isn't a recall in the world that will save you if Lynwood has to file for bankruptcy!!!

It is a fact that what Ramon el mammon and silicone Santillan did is illegal. Councilmembers CANNOT vote on things that benefit them direct or indirectly. Call the D.A. and ask if what they did was legal. The number is 213-974-2003.

Please, let's not bring the race into this issue. A thief is a thief. We have had, Latin Americans, Blacks and whites. They all have one thing in common, and it's not the color of their skin.

Why is it that people always want to hide or defend themselves by saying it is "racism"?

What kind of idiot are you? Blacks where brought here against their will. You latinos sneak in. You want to be here so bad, your tongue is hanging out like a dogs after a bone. You are too proud? of what? You ain't got more or less than anybody else. The reason that you are humble, is because you don't have a choice. If you open your mouth you may get deported. If anyone is humble, it's blacks for putting up with your ass. And further more if it wasn't for blacks during the civil rights movement, your ass would still be south of the border living in cardboard boxes. I didn't see your ignorant and cowardly asses marching to make a change. Now you are reeping and using the benefits from people who have died for rights you enjoy now, and the right to talk about them like you do. You remind me of the (humbled) uncle toms of yesterday. When did the white man ever enslaved you? You have enslaved yourself working for such cheap labor. If anybody should go back, it's you. Straighten out your country you so proud of, but I guess you don't have the guts. You know what would happen to you don't you. One more thing, blacks were not brought here a thousand years ago. Learn American history.

Anonymous said...

Oh, that’s great.

Only reason whitey enslaved you was because your tribal leaders were already enslaving other conquered tribes.

It was just business. You just happened to be stupid enough to go along with it.

I will go one-step further and say that if it were not for slavery, Africans would be extinct. The mass removal of Africans from Africa saved Africa from massive famine and drought that existed during major parts of the slave trade.

So really, you should be happy you were enslaved and brought over here. You are lucky Lincoln did not send you all back.

You have been given the opportunity to prosper in this country and you have squandered it by promoting tribalism, thugery, and promiscuity in your culture. Then you go, criticize, and impugn those that rise above that by labeling them Uncle Toms and Whitewashed.

It is not Hispanic and Black people that are the problem. These idiot tribalism groups like Chicanos, MEChA, Council of La Raza and LULAC promote the idiocy that creates the self-victimhood in Hispanic communities. Similarly, blacks have the same problem with the NAACP, the ACLU, Black Panthers and Louis Farrakhan bunch.

Congratulations. You are all swine.

I thought 7:26 was an idiot, but reading what you have to say, you are more of an idiot. What the hell do you mean about "you are all swine". Are you for real?
One more footnote, your next President will be a black man. Now what? Are you suggesting we send him back too? You people are a joke.

The next president will be Mrs. Clinton.

Anonymous said...

Yes indeed, it seems our next president may very well be a man of color.
WHY??
Because the man doesn't seem to give a rats behind about color.
Gee, what a concept!
Wow!
Maybe his popularity is due to our collective inner hope of someday being able to simply move on.

Like always ignorant ethnic people fighting for the scraps while the "MAN" just sits back and laughs at all of us. You guys are the type of idiots who always appear on tv after a shooting, a robbery, or some kind of protest, to represent us.

Slavery has always been part of both cultures, Mexican indigenous tribes always enslaved one another after battle. But hey, slavery is good for business right. Keep thinking like that and we will always be slaves, Mexican or Black.

Sylvia,

Stop trying to be the victim. You are still garbage and still a part of the problem. You LIED on Morton. You LIE about Aide. You will do anything for a dollar. That part about you will never change. Your criminal mind can never be salvaged. One of the reasons is because you have no future and no options in life. You cannot find work and you cannot earn a decent living.So you will continue to resort to anything to earn a buck for the rest of your life. Good luck you poor thing!

Who made the comment about Obama or Clinton becoming the next President ?? The next president will be John Mc Cain (the lesser of two evils), Obama and Clinton both support the disarming of law-abiding citizens (aka gun control and gun bans), special rights for sexual deviates (e.g. West Hollywood and Palm Springs) legalised drugs, legalised porno shops, smoking bans, murder of the innocent unborn (abortion).. neither one is a real favourite of real Unions (e.g. IBEW and other construction trades)and neither one is a Vet. They support affirmative-action (i.e. reverse discrimination) which is really another name for Union-busting. I really have no choice, since Fred Thompson left the race. By the way, where are Obama and Clinton on Sunday morning at llo'clock?? They're out there pandering to the poverty pimp preachers.

Bradley is a convicted felon.

You are wrong about the increases. Check yourself and your facts Aide. You don't even know what you have voted for stupid!! You voted to approve an increase in trash, water and increase in other fees. I can go on but I won't. The recall is on! Oh and you did vote to increase your salary too. Why not leave it at 780 a month?
The increase on water rates was a 30% increase and was made in 2007 That's what you used to recall the other council remember? You're not doing any better and we will recall you too.

Anonymous said...

Yeah I agree with you. But don't be a racist. What about the trash you have on council now?
Ramon a crook too. Only in it for himself. You know the details.
Maria, well we all know she is just in it for herself too. We know who she is a front for and who pulls her strings. She's come up in the world. New house, new cars, new body i.e. tits, lipo ans chin job to be specific with plastic surgery and all. Ask her she does not deny it. Should I go on?

3:39 I bet your ass is as old as Mc Cains. It's people like you who are set in your old ways that can not adjust to the times. Do you want the war to continue and have young people dying? Do you realize that this administration spent $1 billion a month to keep this war going? Not counting the suffering they force unto the people of Irak. If you have a daughter or son, are you willing to send them to Irak? Remember Mc Cain talked about a hundred year war if neccessary. As far as gays, abortion, pimp preachers, etc, etc, there is nothing Mc Cain can do about, these things are chiselled in stone. Also, get your facts straight about unions. It was the republicans in the 80's when Reagan tried to bust almost every union in this country. One more thing, are you aware that the teamsters endorsed Obama? Mc Cain want to continue the present administrations policy. Haven't we got enough, eight years of lies and deceit. With all this said, I think your comment was not politically motivated, it was racial. We all no who you talking about, refering to pimp preachers.
It's people like you that makes it so important that we have a change, and it will happen. Your next President will be a by-racial man. Like it or not.

Aide was the only one who voted no on the trash. You're obviously are not checking facts. The water hasn't even been discussed.

That is how Aide operates. If there are four YES votes that are unfavorable with the community Aide will vote NO, she knows very well that it will pass and she looks like the good guy, and the rest of the council looks bad. Don't you get it people?

Do you agree that the reason Cuban Immigrants understand Americanism better than a other immigrants from other Latin country's because of having to live under the communist dictator of Fidel Castro?

Anonymous said...

Normally I would agree that Aide just made a move to make herself look good. However because I do attend council meetings. I am witness to the fact that the item was on the table 4 times. Once in October, second December, third January, and fourth February the day Morton was appointed. The three times all council voted no. Part of it, was Aide's opposition to it. Staff was given direction to renegotiate. The fourth time it passed and Aide still voted no. Everyone was so preoccupied with celebrating Jim's appointment that they didn't even realized what had happened. The residents found out till days later and weren't to happy. I personally feel that the increase isn't much. However I really don't think it was neccesary either. I don't think Consolidated does a good job. Please people attend council meetings. Hear and see for yourself what's really going on.

Thanks for you support! I'm glad to read that people are STILL hating on me. I have no need to be Mayor or council member of our great city. However, I will continue to be a political machine. See what I do is, get people elected, get them recalled, and if needed, block politicains who smell corrupted. If I am hated, then I am doing my job perfectly. Just ask Leticia Vasquez and others who have been run down by my machine.

Ms Ortiz,
You haven't figured this out yet? You’re being used, you think you’re in charge, your not. I don't know how much you were paid or even if you were paid to take back you statements on Mr. Morton. You didn’t recant your story because you were sorry; you did so because of other reasons. People like you have only one interest; self-preservation is what it’s called. You’ll say and do anything as long as you can divert attention from yourself. Do I believe Mr. Morton is an evil man, no I don't, but that’s not the issue. The issue is you, do I hate you, no and I have no time for hate. However, your words tell me you do; you do have a poisoned pen and tongue. You make this clear when you talk about your machine. One day the truth will come out and not a person will hear your cry, because you will have cried one too many times to be heard. Fear you, not at all, pity you, not at all. Will I let you speak unchecked, no, not at all!

Sylvia,

Vasuez is old news. but since you are on the subject, let's talk truth. You have no political machine. You are garbage. The truth is people like Billy Martinez and the others that have paid you, and you know who they are, used you. You never proved Vasquez to be a corrupt politician by the way. They used you so that they can secure their lucrative city contracts. Get it? They get rich while you continue to go to the free food banks at Lynwood Park and wait at home for your monthly welfare check.
And by the way anything you ever accused her of were all your made up LIES! She has no hate for you (I have talked to her personally)just like many others, only sorrow for your pitiful life and existance. Oh and by the way,she is doing great. She looks great. She was spotted in Pasadena in her new Benz. Her career is fabulous. I'll send her your regards.

Was that Imperial Partners that trying to sell that pipe dream NFL to the City of Industy? Those crooks just don't stop. You know,the council keeps saying that they are waiting for the judge to make a decision regarding recalled council. But what they said was that they will cancel the project ASAP. Especially Aide kept accusing Maria ana Ramon of lying to the people,but in fact she is the biggest lier of all. Residents need to be asking "why not cancelled yet"? If sued,it's the tax payers money,shouldn't we insist that they cancel immediatlly? Who cares about the cost,the council has vote to hire consultants for 90k to fool the residents. Maybe I need to walk the effected area to shed some light on this. The effected area must insist on cancelling this project NOW!!!!!!!!!
