Where is Autra Adams on election night and Pual Richards.......

They want the money!! Is Autra finally off the payroll? If the tax passes, there are still more budget cuts coming folks.... 9% is less than the 10% and costs are going up. MORE RETIREMENTS are needed. CUT CUT CUT
Annette Potts and Alfredo Lopez need to go too..... Put the money into fire and Sherrif.

The ax is needed because Lynwood has a poor tax base and the corrupt govt of the past wasted our money. There are TOO many unneeded positions like Alfredo Lopez and Annette Potts. Consolidate... Too many mgt. staff.
We need more workers in the field.
SOmeone told me at city hall that staff come in late and dont work.

Viva La Raza... save money..Lay them off.

The Honorable Paul Richards is minding his own business and whomever you are should get over it. He put Lynwood on the map and now who OBAMA in in the house. I get so sick of you guys who rode Paul's back making these stupid comments, don't you think his family suffered enough already it just pisses me off. As far as many of us are concerned who are real people think of people as humans that includes Autra Adams as well. It too bad you are still under the cloak instead of coming out from under the cover. Meet me.

We're going to continue to get a screwing at the hands of the city. I cannot believe that people voted yes on this.A lot of the things that were claimed to be paid for with this tax are already paid by us through property taxes! Just goes to show that the wasteful powers that be are continuing to waste our money with this latest scam. They had to get it locked in because it was a sham job from the beginning. So when it appeared the gravy train was coming to the end of the line, they got the voters to vote it in, using scare tactics. And the senior citizens, with all due respect, should not have been allowed to even vote on this, because they are exempt from it. It does not affect them. But the city dangled the carrot of a possible loss of the senior center if it did not pass. Another use for the money, eh?

What a joke, and it's on us!

Kudos to Frank and Pearline Calderon and others for their efforts. At least they had the backbone to stand up for what is right, and to try to put a stop to the perpetual drain on Lynwood resident's pockets!

For your info; the Calderons where not the only ones wanting to stop the UUT. Just to name a few; Sylvia, Margaret, Irene and alot of others you would never suspect.
So, don't just talk about the Calderons. There is more to it then meets the eye.

At least the Calderons don't hide in the back round and sign anonymous. The Calderons fight for what they believe,which is alot more honorable than being a council kiss ass.I have great respect for the Calderons and anyone who STANDS for something other than financial gain. They won't take a dime.

Congradulations Mayor,it might have taken 100k to win,but who cares?It's on the tax payers back that paid for the deception that you promote.The game never changes,it's not about the residents,it's all about the benjemins.You manipulated these poor nieve hispanics who feared they would loose police services.How does it feel to manipulate and decieve your own people? You relied on thier ignorance to the ongoings of city hall.And you call this deceit a victory? Hate to be U

Lynwood voted smart. the Calderons, silvia had the right to voice what they felt. we would not lose Fire or sheriff. But, recreation would have taken the blunt the big hit! Police and Fire before recreation.

The poor little should get back on their donkey's and trott away. First of all many of you are receiving welfare on our backs married in one name, receiving benefits (free stuff in another) running from school to school looking for something else for free. Secondly, then you have a tribe for a family clogging up the what you call a store, the streets,and making Lynwood a dump with all these renovations looking like a garbage can. Thirdly why don't you go to school like the rest of the Americans and learn to read and write and then you can send you children to college and they can become someone like the other real Americans who are supporting the city and giving back instead of taking and whose children are making people proud. Notice I didn't say kids, because some have kids and others have children. NOW WHAT, and you ought to leave people alone because its not like you've been her 30 plus years like the rest of us. And what are you getting for free or giving for free??

Irene Garcia and Margaret Aurajo also need to be removed from thier commissions.

Anonymous said...

Keep talking all this $hit. There are some that never say anything positive and always want everything for free. Those some are the Calderons, Sylvia Ortiz, Irene Garcia and Margaret. Oh and speaking of Margaret Aurajo she was trying to ki$$ a$$ by bringing tamales on Tuesday night.

Question

Why does Lynwood City Hall open only Monday thru Thursday. We talk all the time on this blog about non-productive workers in city hall.

Part of this can be pointed at 4 day x 10 hour shifts. Companies that I worked for, that experimented with 4 x 10 weeks, found that productivity actually decreased. Workers did not put forward a 10 hour effort in this type of shift.

Lynwood is a city with problems that need attention all 5 days of the work week.

No, que no!

Lynwood has so many problems,it needs 24/7 attention.

Anonymous said...

All Cities need 24/7 attention. Are you willing to pay for 24/1 service? Of course not.

La pinche gente quiere todo gratis. Creen que todavia estan en su rancho, donde hacen lo que les da la gana.

Aquie aunque tengas casa, hay codigos y reglas que tienes que seguir. Y, si no te gusta ...REGRESATE,

What I just said in Spanish is that everyone wants everything for free and think they are still in their home town (ranch) where they can do whatever they want. Here, you must abide by rules, codes and if they don't like it.... Go back!

Go back to where?

GO BACK to where they allow you to live with clothes on the fence, chickens, roasters and build whatever you want on your land.

Where exactly they allow you to do all this?

Great! The favor she now will return is that he will be running for city council now that Flores has said he won't run. Good luck!

Who cares. Castro's nothing but an idiot anyway! They are not hiring any talent. Not that they care to do so. Lynwood Unified needs another secretary. Let the lady learn how to earn her money instead of sleeping around for it and stealing from Lynwood taxpayers.

What are Aide Casro's qualifications:
*high school drop out
*drug dealer
*expert at committing fraud and falsifying home loan documents
WOW! She'll do a great job with Lynwood parents!
