The voters of the Ninth District have been hoodwinked. Now they will get to exercise their rights and sign the recall petitions, then vote him out of office and put someone responsible in there instead. Just like that. Nice try, Steve, but you got found out. You have disappointed a lot of people here in the Ninth.

Just another example of a democrat, supported by unions, who has no idea of financial responsibility. He now esxpects the taxpayers to "modify" his loan because of his failure to take personal responsibilty for his bad decisions. As long as the people vote for this type of idiot, supported by unions, we will continue to see elected officials who cannot run their personal lives much less guide the city in a clear financially responsible direction.

The thing no one explains is why UNIONS pick the least respectable candidates to back for office in our City and State?????????

If only Unions used the power they have to more the City and State in a positive direction. It seems that the Union Bosses and State Dem Bosses must HATE us all to do what they have done to California.

I just drove by Neal's place, and workers are there installing an ATM machine in front of his house.

How come you never see any Cambodians on the council, or in city government?

Long Beach has the largest population of Cambodians, this side of Cambodia! Where are those people? How come they never get involved?

Maybe we need an all-Asian city council. Get rid of those boring old corrupt white folk.

Steve is no where near a vile as Laura. Both are morally and ethically challenged but that is a prerequisite for being the choice of the LB Democratic voting majority.

How do these supposedly intelligent, educated people suddenly become corrupt when they get into politics??!!

That weird power trip and ego thing begins... Soon to follow is the greed and corruption, and then becoming butt-buddies with unions and special interest groups.

I swear, 99% of politicians (at ALL levels) are sick and disgusting! Weird disturbed power-hungry people go into that kind of work.

Using the property as ATM and finding out that the principal was getting larger every month it only took me 6 months to get it refinanced again 30 year fixed not ARM that was increasing 12k per year on the principal. It doe not take a rocket scientist to see reality!!!!!!!!!!

He's been doing a great job and has actually made changes with the people in his district. It's funny how he passes the foreclosure legislation and Eakins comes out with this.... Hmmm.... Eakins might be in someone's pocket, or he just has his eye on Neal's every move.
I'm sure if Neal misses his next car payment, we'll be sure the PT (eakins) will report on that too.
C'mon people, it's his personal problem. Everyone has them right? Look at what he's done so far in office, he's actually doing an ok job. You have the Ninth District's support!
Do you know that foreclosures are a public record!!!!!!!!!!

The inability to read loan docs (or the desire to defraud lenders, take your pick) seems to be a requirement for LB council members.

This clown should be in the cell next to the Bell officials, not getting (which he probably will) a loan modification.

This article has been posted for the longest period of time now by the PT allowing all of the judgmental racist comments to be posted by persons who of course have never done anything like Mr. Neal.
The posters of course are squeaky clean, frugal, and have never run into financial troubles (like a medical emergency?).
Oh, and so what if he refid 5 or 6 times?
You are so nignant.
please

Neal might not be considered ethical enough to represent citizens anywhere else but he is plenty good enough for what's left of Long Beach. Voters have dramatically lower expectations here.
