Ginna Escobar is absolutely the worst puppet I've ever seen. She flat out lied in her question and answer. She said Fire has taken too many cuts. Well "fire" has never taken a cut from the contract since it was first signed in the 90's. In fact "fire" has increased on every contract, not to mention the ONLY department to increase this year by $1.5M. Hey GInna did you know you are running for the city of Pomona not to the fire union? One last thing Ginna. It's the Los Angeles County Fire Department, not the City of Pomona. Show a little class you uneducated airhead. Go away little girl.
Ginna Escobar arrested

Ginna Escobar was caught on camera stealing Tim Saunders signs in Pomona. She was placed under citizens arrest and issued a citation due to her theft. Do you really want to vote for a little girl who steals and lies? I don't.

IN POMONA, a candidate's sign theft turned comical Wednesday when she was allegedly caught in the act - by the councilman whose signs she was pilfering.

Incumbent Tim Saunders put signs up outside the Grand Mart market. Because he's had so many signs go missing shortly after posting them, he decided to wait in his car, which has tinted windows.

Sure enough, a few minutes later, election opponent Ginna Escobar - a former Miss Pomona - and her boyfriend showed up and (gasp) confiscated Saunders' signs.

Saunders documented the act with his camera phone and then confronted the pair. The councilman phoned police. Oh yeah? Escobar phoned Mayor Elliott Rothman.

Rothman's advice: Leave. She did.

(Adding intrigue, Escobar has been endorsed by Rothman, who in 2008 backed Saunders for appointment to the council. Hmm.)

Saunders led police to Escobar's home and at his request she and her boyfriend were cited and released.

"We didn't initiate the arrest," city spokesman Mark Gluba said Thursday, "and we have no comment on political matters."

And that's the news from Pomona.

I do not know Ginna, but I do know her brother. I happened to be a very good freind of the ex deputy of the Tulare county sheriff's office and now a business owner. He has no comments about Ginna's behavior nor her actions. He is only concern about his dad's health and reputation. People if Ginna has committed a crime that remains to be seen in the court of law. He does not know Mr Sanders, and he wishes the best luck to both candidates. He states " If Ginna was cited she will face the judge for her actions, and the law will prevail."

With the highly educated language that you use, are you by chance a fireman with local 1014? It seems that often individuals from public safety have a certain manner in how they address the public. I personally do not like any of our candidates this year and it's a shame because we have some fine people in this district that would do a great job but you probably would not like them because they're too smart, educated and wisened ...maybe next time.
I ended up voting for Saunders only after receiving five expensive, slanderous mailers, the worse one being last Saturday from an organization called FORCE on Flair Park. I Googled both and found FORCE and Firefighters Local 1014 on the same location. I am really disappointed but not surprised at the manner in which you campaigned and who you chose to endorse in this campaign. Gina seems to be a smart young woman but just not experienced or willing enough to handle a large pocketed union without allowing their greed to continue growing and putting the interests of the community first, but that is what you ultimately wanted, right?

1. Ginna has no black belt in any martial art
2. Both her and her mother have never held a job for longer than a couple months
3. Rumor has it she is the black sheep of her family and no relatives support her or her two-faced mother
4. She has never been into legal consulting, i think maybe she knows people that are
5. yes she was miss teen pomona but Please keep in mind there was only two other contestants
6. She was kicked out of the university of lavern for her stupid acts at her dorms(reason don't know)
7. She was caught stealing signs, no doubt of course this is her nature anything to win attention so she can say "im a councilwoman".
8. On her myspace account she used to claim that she worked at vivid ent. doing make-up...as proud as she was for that, that is not true as well

Finally i hope she does get elected so she has a taste of real life and realizes that the rest of the world has responsiblities..and you cant just flyby everything

I think you're the idiot because it says in an earlier post that Ginna was "cited and released". That means she didn't spend the night in jail (in case you didn't know that).

Speaking of libel - "junkie, crack head kids, weirdo, lowlifes".
Why would anyone believe anything you post because it looks like you own that word.

For those of you who are not familiar with who David Allen is, he is a writer for the Daily Bulletin who was the one who wrote the piece about Ginna stealing the signs. Let me tell you something about David Allen, he is the most credible writer for the Bulletin. He does not write anything UNLESS he has a credible source proving the article (such as the police report that was filed WITH Ginna's name on it,) and that is why I have supported him for years now.

Here is a link to that article: http://www.dailybulletin.com/ci_16459570

When you get a citation, like what Ginna got, you have to go to court at a later date to solve the issue. That could perhaps explain why she was out the next morning.

I remember his son working at Albertsons when it was open, and he was one of the friendliest people that worked there. At the time my son was going to Ranch Hills Elementary, and I had mentioned they had the school Jumbiliee Carnival coming up, and he volunteered to come help out. I also would see him on the soccer fields on the weekends refing games. That doesn't sound like much of a crack head to me. To me it sounds like YOU are the one doing the slandering.

Even Tim's daughter, I believe her name was Sheanice, or Shauna, what a doll she was. She worked at the It's A Grind and always made my drink perfect. I just find it hard to believe they would be crack heads, considering I have seen them both employeed.

Nothing should be about their children anyway. Let's vote based on their record and what they are going to do. Tim Saunders is the only one that has said why people should vote for him, instead of why I shouldn't vote for the other person. He is also an extremely friendly. I don't see it as likely that he would yell at an old lady, especially at one that I heard from local businesses is loud mouth. I wonder if she started and if it was her trying to find a reason to get back at Saunders for catching her stealing signs. I know if someone busted me, I would want some kind of revenge. Perhaps file a false police report against that person?

My whole household voted for Saunders, as should yours.

Especially with those FORCE (which is the fire department's union) crap that came just trashing all of Ginna's opponents.

So far I have only read critics and insults of Ginna's critics and supporters. Nevertheless, I have noticed that her supporters are the only once using fouled language when posting a comment. Are these the aquaintaces she associates with? Pomona is this what we want? Gat a life little girl if nobody keeps tabs of this page why do you?

My name is Justin Saunders, and I am the son of Tim Saunders. Even though it is unlikely people will read this before voting, I will clear a few things up. First of all, I am DRUG-FREE, and have been my whole life. I didn't even start drinking until I was twenty-one, so how are people going to go around labeling myself as a crack head? What about my brother and sister, who BOTH have jobs? Having a job is not a quality that the majority of "crack heads" have.

I am sick of this slandering garbage that has been doing around this whole election, as well all of the cheap tricks the other candidates have been trying to pull against my dad. I had two fake facebook profiles contact me this weekend, trying to get me to commit crimes against Ginna (such as taking down her signs, I saved the conversations so they can be addressed when it is time to go to court over her citation.) Not once during the campaign did my dad, myself, or anyone involved in my dad's campaign, mess with the opponents signs. We also did not put our signs in illegal places, such as public property, and we did not just put signs up on people's yards. Every single sign my dad put up, was a sign approved by the owner of that house who supported my dad.

As for the person referring to my dad as "Tim Slanders," let's hear what slander stuff he did. Was he the one who was passing out letters attacking people? Or was he the one that had the fire union sending out letters of slander? The whole time my dad was campaigning, he was talking about what he has done, what he plans to do, and telling people why they should vote for him; while his opponents were busy telling people why they should not vote for my dad.

I can't even believe this election is even a contest. There is one person who is qualified, and has worked his way up to council member, and has been doing things for the community for over 20 years; going against people who have absolutely NO experience, and have absolutely done NOTHING for the community. It is absolutely ridiculous. For the sake of Pomona, I hope that the illiterate above me is not correct, and there is someone else in that council besides Tim Saunders.

I reluctantly voted for your dad, not being sure of what was the truth in all these posts. Now I feel comfortable in my vote after reading your words which I find genuine and truthful. Thank you for responding ...I know that very few people read this blog but I for one appreciate a son who stands up for what is right and for his Dad ...good for you.

Now if we can stop the rest of the mudslinging against Gina and the other candidates, it would be great to get the Phillips Ranch community back to what it was meant to be, a model for the rest of Pomona. Let's not emulate how the other districts do business.

Best of Luck

Ginna sounds like a better bet than the bigamist who lies.

I just fell off my chair when I saw that Ginna was leading as of now. Appears Fire bought themselves another puppet. Amazing.
