Mtb. Councilmember Hadjinian Target of L.A. D.A. Inquiry

Aug 22, 2012 | Posted by: 42 yr North Mtb resident | Full story: latimesblogs.latimes.com

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office has launched an inquiry into the campaign finances of Montebello Councilmember Jack Hadjinian. Prosecutors said they’re looking at possible wrongdoing related to campaign contributions, but warned there was no evidence yet that a crime had been committed.

David Demerjian, head deputy of the district attorney’s public integrity division, acknowledged that the inquiry began with information discovered during an ongoing criminal probe into allegations that L.A. County Assessor John Noguez and his staff had given tax cuts to political supporters.

That woman who speaks at the council meeting speaks a lot of truth about Cortez and her cronies. Talk around city hall is she is going to run the city clerk and the loser from the last election Gallarzo in the November election. Man, if she gets control of the council Montebello will be in the sewer faster than you can count to 1 (which none of them can). Talk about a bunch of crooks running the city. City of Bell, here we come!
We can only hope that doesn't happen. What does this lady keep saying about her? I haven't heard

While on the surface Cortez has been putting her best fake face on as mayor, she has been causing ripples behind the scenes with staff. Concerns of harassment of employees, strong arming staff to get her way for financial gain, and readying for the fall elections to get her buddies in are alive and growing. Barajas is in on the game as he needs to be re-elected for the money; his printing business makes little bucks and, he needs the medical insurance. This city is going down the tubes with dummies like these bozos. Recall Cortez, vote out Barajas..

How is this pressure getting money for someone? Who and how is someone getting financial gain? What is wrong with needing med ins? More questions are raised with these uninformative posts than any insights.

So crazy Cortez says she is going to the meeting in Vegas, the same one she complained for years was a waste that other council members and staffed attended. Who is this girl? Sounds like she has a split personality. She is as fake up there as a woman with a boob job. What a disgrace to the community. Recall!

Appears some of the division heads don't want to be part of another Bell fiasco if Cortez and her gang get in in the upcoming elections. Rumor is that she has already pressured them to do some unscrupulous things to benefit her and some of her "friends" in the community. DIstict Attorney needs to watch Montebello very carefully over the next few years. Besides her, watch Glasman and Hadjinian.

I think her friends are some of the low class people she and her husband hang around with at the parks and city sports events. They give montebello a bad name. The city used to be a nice place to raise kids and retire. Now, with people like Cortez, and Barajas, the city has gone to the dogs.

Cortez last night was called out on her stupid remarks about the police dept. What a liar she is? Perhaps she is the way she is because she lacks the education to make informed decisions. Poor little girl.

What did Christina Cortez say? Whenever I see her on TV she is too emotional and does not know how to speak very well. Where does she get her information? Does she read the agenda? She is the mayor and has such poor speaking abilities. Has she ever thought about going to toastmasters?

So the council is heading to Las Vegas, again, to try to bring in new business to the city. Another taxpayer waste of money where all they do is gamble, drink, and eat all for free. This time hypocrite Christina Cortez is joining the crowd. For years she would yell at the others for going to the conference. Now, since she is mayor, she has changed her "little" mind. Ridiculous. How did anyone ever vote this wacky girl in?

Viva Las Vegas!!

This convention of active retail sellers is probably the best way to get more retail/commercial businesses into Montebello. Didn't she go last year, too?

Heard she has never went but has made a point at council meetings of calling it a waste of money for years. Guess she wanted in on the action (free food, hotel rooms, and shows) before she is recalled. What a hypocrite.
