Desperate needs call for desperate measures!!!

I guess we know what Alfreddie Johnson is up to these days.

He must be running out of money. This is probably the only way he can make a living since he got recalled.

Anonymous said...

that is just amazing, but not surprising. Mr. Alfreddie Johnson's right hand person (Ms. Islam) knew exactly what she was doing. She is not a stupid woman. I recall her introducing herself as Dr. Islam, that was probably a lie too.

Anonymous said...

World Literacy Crusade (Alfreddie and Dr. Hanan) knew that it was a fraud. They took these poor people's money and promised them a place to sleep.

These people got taken advantage for being, poor, ignorant and some even greedy. The worse part is that these folks are African American.

If Alfreddie does this to his own people, what could the folks living in the "Angeles Fields" area expect.

Hanan is playing the innocent victim! That is too funny! I have known her for years and she has always had a hustle....always a scheme. Hanan, you should come clean and get those poor people their money back. You should be ashamed of yourself and you should be given some jail time to really think about what you have done. Things are NEVER so bad that you take from your own people.........SHAME ON YOU!!!!

The city of Lynwood does not except section 8 vouchers. Lynwood does not have rent control. I am working with the fair housing department. During the recall hundreds of residents complained about rent control. I told residents that Lynwood did not have rent control. Hundreds of residents have asked me to help them. I talked to a senior citizen and she told me that, she was paying $950 a month for a one bedroom. She is willing to walk the city to get signatures requesting help from our leaders. Our people are suffering. This senior told me that lots of her neighbors pay the rent and then they have no money for food. I just about cried. You mean I have to suffer all my life to survive and then still can't afford to be old. F-----------.

Y'all talk about the same BULLSHIT. You can quote me on that!!!

Let's talk about some POSITIVE things going on in our city. I bet most of you can't think of any cuz your hearts are rotten with hate and ignorance.

I'll start it off.

1. No elected officials have gone to jail within the last month!!!

2. There hasn't been any Recalls recently.

3. The Stadium hasn't been built....(yet).

4. The NEW Ham Park will begin Phase I of construction.

5. Firebaugh is an IB school. Only 10 such schools in LA County.

6. Lynwood High's Perfomance Arts Dept. put on a state of the art performance that was covered by the Lynwood Wave Newspaper.

7. Finally, Lynwood High Seniors have been accepted to some good colleges such as M.I.T., Williams College, Cornell University, UCLA, USC, UC Santa Barbara, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, UC San Diego, UC Riverside, and many Cal States.

Sincerely,
LYNWOOD TMZ!!!

How many Lynwood students have made it to Harvard, Mc Gill, Yale, or Notre Dame ?? By the way.. how come you cover only Lynwood public schools ?? What about St-Emydius or St-Philip Neri Schools ?? What's wrong ? Don't you like Parochial schools ????

Anonymous said...

After seeing the last positive comement (TMZ), i would too like to say that though the city has a lot of useless hires, they did make a great one recently. It was a promotion actually. Perry Brents has been made interim Director of Parks & Recreation. He is one man you see busy all the time. Glad he was moved from under L.Alderette (marketing & grants), becuase it was a waste of his time to be put under someone who does not know what she is doing. He has a chance to show leadership now.

Anonymous said...

You've got to be kidding. All Perry does is ,follow whatever council woman he can flirt with to keep his job. First it was Leticia and now it's Aide. Same shit different day.

Anonymous said...

Perry has been around forever that is why he got the promotion. He is good at what he does (talking) Lets be real, he is always in city managers office kissing... and visiting Delania. She will probably end up under his department eventually, so they can be closer. Perry could be so much better if he just kept the flirting, and socializing in control.

I suggest you get yourself another job. Obviously you do not know much about section 8 and Lynwood. I live, and own property in this city for many years, and I always have section 8 renters. As far as the senior citizen concern who has to pay $950 for one bedroom, I'm sorry, but the Landlord has to pay his mortgage to. He did not get this property for free. This is the sign of the times. By the way$950 is pretty good if you consider in L.A one bedroom cost you $1,500 and up, and they have rent control. So before you start crying look around and get your facts straight.
P.S. There are always cheaper places to rent, no one puts a gun on people and force them to rent for a certain $ amount.

Did my message about Perry Brents not go through properly or are the complaints by other bloggers valid. Are you screening messages for your friends. Did you not know about Brents and Whitaker and there office relationship. He is probably married.

To the greedy landlord. Your full of shit! There is NO LEGAL section 8 apartments in Lynwood. I'm sure that me working on this scares you. I'm going to make your life hell. You landlord's provide unsafe housing,from ungated apartments to no sprinkler systems leaving Lynwood residents and children
in deadly situations. And lets don't forget about the unsafe buildings, fences,stairways,automatic gates and the list goes on and on. So don't say I don't know what I'm talking about. Let's see which of our leaders support the renters. Stay tuned. Sylvia Ortiz

Anonymous said...

To the hater, Sylvia looks more like a council member than you. She went from table to table and everyone loves her. How about you? I saw Maria getting lots of love from her people,but where's yours?
That's right,you don't have any. And instead of telling your whorey teenage pregnacy story, why don't you talk about the drugs and weapons you keep in the garage. That would make for a better story. You should have seen the seniors faces at my table when you talked about your hardships. What hardships? Your sucessful realator story,,,,,I know how you got your license and it wasn't through hard work.Your cousin the tax guy, gave you the answers just like he offered to give the answers to me.And your buisness skills? Your the one with three morgages in default and two buisnesses you haven't made a dollar on. So keep talking shit about me........Has anyone seen the D.A. lately? And by the way, I have a job you could only dream of!!!!!

Husbands are over rated, what good is a husband if he won't accompany his wife to events? And what kind of husband stays out late with the boys playing cards three nites a week. And what kind of husband gives motorcycles rides to women younger and prettier than his wife? Thats not a husband.That's a opertunist.Poor wife so co- dependant with no self esteem she can't even see it. Husbands are over rated.

I forgive you. But please stop it. You are assuming things. You're letting people instigate. He wants to talk you. Give him a call on his cell. Let me know when you want to check the inquiries on your credit. So you can confirm whose been looking up your info. But if I'm not mistaken BK's are public info. You can get it at the county. If the real estate business continues as bad as it has, I'll be joining the list of BK filers.

FYI...Section 8 is not handled by cities. Landlords need to apply to section 8. The property needs to meet certain criteria to be able to qualify. Most landlords don't like to accept vouchers because they don't want to go through the inspection required. And also because the amount covered by the vouchers is not enough for them to cover their mortgages. Even though you can request the tenant to pay the difference of the rent, it's really hard to collect from them. Landlords don't want to take the risk of not being paid. Rent control is something that the city can work on. However when it is reviewed the current mortgage payments will be taken into consideration. You can't demand from a landlord to only charge $1,000.00 if their mortgage is $2,000.00. If you know of anyone being a slum lord please report them to the fair housing foundation and to the city's code enforcement department.

Another thing. Most educational courses give you the answers. You are supposed to study them to prepare for the test. For example; the GED course book has all the test and answers. Another example; the real estate principles course book also has all the test and answers. You need to study them all. Out of 1,500 possible questions you will only be asked 150. Just an example. No secret. Business 1. Doing great but not enough to pay the bills. Business 2. Just sold. Mortgage 3. Taken care of. Got my cousin out and put a responsible tenant in place. Mortgage 1 and 2 being worked on. I'm not ashamed of my struggles. It's simply life. Donald Trump is considered to be a guru in real estate and he's filed BK's several times. My husband is my king. He's not perfect but I love him. That pretty girl was my comadres sister. And you knew that. Tell the story right. If he wants to play cards with his buddy he has the right to do so. He works long hours and deserves freedom. I know you believe men don't deserve freedom. But only insecure woman act that way. If he wants to cheat on me he will, not matter what I do. But I trust him. If he doesn't attend events, it's simply because he is working. But he's been there when it matters.

I'm sure you assumed it was me talking about you because of the section 8 discussion. But as you can see neither one of you had it right. You both only have half the info. You can be very helpfull to this community when you want. When I met you, you focused on good things. Like fundraising, community service, and advocating for those in need. If you focus on that, no one can attack you. Your actions will speak for themselves.

Remember that you can only be a community activist or a business person. The two don't mix. Business is cut throat and dry. Community is the people first. You more then anyone knows this. If you're going to be a business person, choose what kind you want to be. You can be a business person that is short term. And get involved in legal matters by accepting any kind of business. Or you can have personal ethical standards. And be selective about the business you accept. Which one are you? No one is perfect. Everyone has something in their past they can feel ashamed of. The issue is whether or not you will allow your past failures to hold you back. I accept and embrace my past. My past is what has molded me into the person I am today. Not perfect, because I never will be. But better with every life lesson I fail or succeed at.

God Bless

Sylvia Sylvia Sylvia. Pobrecita, attacking stupid Aide. When are you going to realize that you are nothing. You're so stupid you don't even know who's really talking to you. You see, you talk a big game. But you ain't shit. Keep talking shit about stupid Aide. In the meanwhile I'll keep exposing the dumb ass you are. No one will hire you. Because everyone knows you can't be trusted. You tell people you have a job, but it's all your in your imagination. Look how low you've gone. Now you attack the husbands. What's next. No wonder Aide kicked you to the curve. I wonder if Maria will remove you as a commissioner when she finds out that you committed a crime when you voted for Wilma Wilson's Peace and Joy Center. Did you think I had forgotten that you worked for her. Remeber I'm the one who told her to fire your ass. I'm not gone just yet. You and those other 2 bitches will pay. I have friends that let me know everything going on. You actually believed that your stupid chocolate donation would give you recognition. How desperate are you. Maria and Aide's speeches were both stupid. Funny how they both are getting along great with out you. Pobrecita pendejita on the outside looking in. I heard they even had a big party and you weren't invited.HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Alex was. HEHEHEHEHE

You weren't. HOHOHOHO

Who will come to your defense?
I also told on you for the Montebello deal. You really screwed up their. You will pay for all the lies you told about me. I'm still waiting for my apology. I figured if Morton got one, so should I.

Hey bloggers! Aide Castro was spotted coming out of the Embassy Suites in Downey with el panzon de Billy Martinez. Guess she was paying him back for all the money he spent on her campaign. But i guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Her whorey days go back to when she was 14 yrs old. She did tell us that story at the luncheon.

Aide ran a good game on her now husband Jose. How many young guys like him would take in and totally support not one but two kids that are not even his? Not many. She came up and she knows it! She better call him her king or else she'd be in the street or living in her mom's garage like before.

For the person who tried to answer for Aide. She beat you to the punch.

Has mayor Santillan become so selfish and spoiled that she would change the 4-10 work week just so that she can have employees doing her bidding on a Friday. She can keep saying that the residents want it, but I know that I still have to rush after work to get to city hall before they close at 6 how are we ever going to make it if the city closes at 5. This new council hasn't come up with any new ideas or any suggestions of their own. Is this the best they can do?

I do know there was a reason for cities changing to a 4/10 work schedule from a 5/8 schedule.

I think what people need to do is tell the bafoon SANTILLAN about this. Santillan is the one pushing the city to go back to a 5-day work week. I'm sure she also has people looking into what the process would be like.

this is the reason she has morons like political cronies working on raising the issue at council meetings.

I think the city of lynwood is finally discovering what Santillan and Rodriguez are all about. I thought they said they would never show favortism of do political favors for anyone. Yet, they just hired miguel figueroa as a laborer to work under Adolfo Medina.

To our so-called mayor and mayor pro-tem, wouldn't your time be better spent figuring out a way to improve our community. Your cattiness and has shown that you are both nothing but trash! To Leticia, give it up already, you were recalled, you had your chance, the Lynwood voters took a chance on you and you blew it, time to move on. Sylvia, if I remember correctly you walked around to get rid of Leticia and was pushing for Aide at first, now you speak so poorly of her. This shows you are a woman of no substance

Attention Rsidents:

Look out here we go again. The council will spend thousands to try to pass the utility users tax. This is just more corruption. If they really want to right a wrong of previos councils they should stop collecting this illegal tax. I pay about $100 a month in this illegally collected tax on all my bills. Instead of spending money on all the traveling they have been doing lately they should right a wrong of the last council and stop collecting the illegal tax. Haven't they done enough. They just raised our water rates again then they raised street sweeping and trash collection fees now this. I thought this was a different council!

Why do we have to close Harris Ave. 26th of April for Mark Ridley Thomas? What kind of "MEETING" is held on a street?
I never heard of such bull sh.
Why is a State Senator coming to Lynwood if in the State Assembly he represents Hancock Park, Beverlywood, Leimert Park, Ladera Hights etc.?
What is this about? And what is he doing in Lynwood?
Why are the people of Harris Ave. not renting a hall, or have the meeting a Plaza Mexico. Better yet, rent Bateman Hall and pay the City.
Who ever invited this guy should fork out their own money and pay for "THE MEETING"
Can someone tell me what this is about?
I hope the City Council is not intimidated by his title and let this happen,
AND DENY THIS REQUEST.

This council is no different than the last. Why would Aide vote for a consultant that her cousin Fernando p. got a kick back from. None of the council reads the agenda fully.None of them did any homework on the Davis group. The firm is out of Long Beach. And who lives in and does business in Long Beach? Our city manager. The Davis group claims to sucessfully lower the utility tax in Huntington Park but, when I checked it out, I found that they did lower the tax from 7 1/2 to 6 1/2 percent. But only on the phone bill. I have a copy of the letters that went out to residents in H.P. and the Davis firm tricked the residents by failing to state that it would only be the phone tax that would be decreased not All utilities. So the people unaware of the trick voted to lower the tax. Hopefully the blog master will post the letter I've submitted. If the Davis firm thinks that they will trick Lynwood residents, I will be around to expose the truth.

I hear another recall is on the way. Leticia you could finally get your revenge on Aide. The recall WILL be for Aide and her puppet. So if you want revenge instead of hiding behind this blog, then pull it together and contact the right individuals. And any other council member who want's to support Aide and her puppet will also be included in this recall. And don't think it's not possible, just ask Byrd, Pedroza,Johnson and Vasquez. Hopefully, Maria and Ramon, Morton stay out of it!!!!!!That's if you want to remain with the ball in your court. Let's get rid of corruption once and for all. Aide and her puppet are just and extension to the last council. June is just 5 weeks away. So, you other canidates that didn't get in,might want to also contact the right individuals.The council is giving away our money anyhow so we should be able to dip in OUR general fund to elect the right people.Not canidates that fool the community and trick the voters. And not puppets that ask the puppetier "how should we vote". This was done right in front of the public at a council meeting. Shame on you!!!!
