Wonderful news to folks whose lives have been ruined and dreams destroyed so the city could profit frm their misery.

Moseley plagued El Monte for years, acting as cheif counsel and lapping up the cream, his beacch partner Leech is the same way.

Way to go Supreme Court, Finally some sense and realization of redevelopment agency abuse.

Congratulations to the citizens of Glendora.. Tremendous victory

How much taxpayer money did Glendora spend on this legal challenge? I heard it was around a million bucks, maybe the paper could report on it?

"Blighted areas of Glendora" where ? If ever I seen a more nose up in the air attitude it would be this one. If a city needed rivitalization it would be Azusa, now talk about trash.

I guess the people on this site are smarter then most!

Because you think it is perfectly fine that tax dollars earned in our city and by law should be put into redevelopment projects (for use in Glendora) should then be taken away from us by the County, because they don't think we have areas in need of redevelopment.

I guess you are right, we should earn the dollars and then wrap them up in a pretty little package and send them to the county to be used as they see fit.

What part of wrong is that!

I guess our City Council was wrong trying to stop the County from taking our funds, if that is the case then they should all hit the bricks.

I disagree with anyone that thinks the Council did anything wrong, was it a gamble sure, but sometimes in life you have to make those kind of choices in hopes of a better outcome. If you look at the big picture this could have been huge dollars kept here in town, now they will be sent elsewhere.

The point was not missed, instead an article on the front page of the Los Angeles Times, newspaper points out what crooks have been doing with this FREE money.

Crooks in Glendora were finally caught!

Missed Point, aka; Douglas Tessitor stop your crying! Anthony Adams your B-boy lost his seat because of your insane methods of accounting and rewarding your FRIENDS.

As ALWAYS the poster for West Covina quotes an news article that has nothing to do with Glendora.

Did you read the article, did you see the word GLENDORA in the story, let me ask again DID YOU SEE THE WORD GLENDORA in the story?

Answer is NO!!!!!!!!!

You would think that if GLENDORA had a problem with their redevelopment dept. the LA TIMES would have covered it in their story. I guess you have to ask Why they did not?

But as is the case with ALL your post you tend to lie, lie, lie!

Get a life. Be a part of the resolve, not a part of the problem!

Not even worth asking the question again........West Covina you lack of response to the questions only cements what everyone already knows about you.

Just look at every post for West Covina, just a bunch of fabricated tid bits, cut and past, add here, take out there, whatever it takes to fill the void in the sad little world of that poster.

The city spent $800,000 in attorney fees battling the county. The city felt the wasteful expenditure was justified since the establishment of the area would have captured millions to improve the city.

Adams, who authored a pet bill 33333,13 that tried to give the redevelopment funds to Glendora for the area, wrote the Supreme Court encouraging judges to hear the case.

With much relief, there is hope the Anthony Adam bill and other crazy activity being done by Glendora and it;s city council will stop.

With Chris Jeffers and the rest of the Glendora California city council being caught LYING to it's employees, residents and registered voters. No one can trust anything they say in public or in print ever again!

You are delussional you did not earn the dollars, you let the city rape and pilage property owners, all the tax money goes to the coffers of the redevelopment agency, which requires more and more blight feed it's increasing addiction to manipulation of its very unhealthy relationship with city fathers instead of the people who are the heart of the city. Then after you have fed the beast it may let you borrow more money to feed it. But that requires more blight, look at your own redevelopment report on Glendoras website, 2010 "we have no more tax increment," we cannot fund more, meanwhile back at the ranch they are living off the tax money and profit they promised you. Go read "Redevelopment the unknown government" I say take all the ill gotten redevelopment money and use it to get California out of this debt. It put California there in the first place.

oh yes, please see the stories on redevelopment in the LA times "Arrested Development" The sooner the state is rid of redevelopment agencies, the better California will get. Not to mention property owners can enjoy the use of their property and not worry about property seizure by legal racketteers
who delude council folks into playing the devils advocate for them. El Monte and Glendora share one thing in common, their attorneys were partners until Ms. Moseley was forced to resign for unclean hands. I bet dollars to donuts you are going to see trouble from the existing redevelopment deals already in existence.

Oh it all makes perfect sense now. It wasn't a wise, prudent and legal decision by our Council, instead it was a gamble.
So when numerous County officials and Attorneys indicated Glendora's actions were illegal, our Council doubled down and went for the big win. And when the District Judge ruled their actions illegal, they doubled down again. And when the Court of Appeals ruled the actions illegal, well double down yet one more time.
But of course the wise Council protected us by using attorneys who would be paid ONLY if they prevailed....oh, that's a no.
I am all for gambling, but I would suggest the Council try purchasing lottery tickets next time and please, pretty please....next time your want to gamble, use your own money and not the taxpayers!

For desperate, greedy people in Glendora's city hall their past actions all makes perfect sense now. It wasn't a wise, prudent, morally, ethicial and legal decision by Glendora Califonria's City Council, Legal Department and City Manager instead it was a gamble.

Ken Herman
Karen Davis
Terry Kent
Gene Murabito
Douglas Tessitor

Wayne Leech
Chris Jeffers

Mark Kelly
Gary Clifford

All these people should be charged with criminal conduct and removed from their current positions.

So when numerous County officials and Attorneys indicated Glendora's actions were illegal, our Council doubled down and went for the big win.

But of course the wise Council protected us by using attorneys who would be paid ONLY if they prevailed....oh, that's a GREAT BIG no. The reason was, those attorneys knew who they were up against..

Hey! Great idea! Rewrite history AGAIN!! Rename Arrow Highway Route 66!! They did it once, since Foothill Blvd. is the "REAL" Route 66! So, change Alosta back to it's original name, then we'll be all set for "historical" funding...

The Bozos on council and Jeffers will think its a great idea!!!!

What Happens Next:

Moving beyond the technical issues, the real question is what happens to redevelopment obligations and assets.

This will be the subject of considerable discussion in upcoming weeks, but here are a few, bright-line rules people should know.

4) If the agency transferred any assets to its city/county or another public agency after January 2, 2011, the transfer is potentially subject to ABX1 26's "claw back" provisions.

Unfortunately, the RDAs became abusers of the system that turned into crony capitalism by currying favors to friends of developers whom had close ties at certain quarters at City Hall up and down the state.

You guys have no idea what Redevelopment Scams have been going on in Baldwin Park, California.

The guys behind Baldwin Park's Redevelopment Scam:
1. Vejay Singhal - City Manager
2. Manuel Lozano - Mayor
3. Marlen Garica - Council Member
4. Monica Garcia - Council Member

These scammers stole from the Redevelopment Agency and filled their coffers.

City Hall abuse was the worst in Baldwin Park.
