Do you think that we have leadership here in Delano? Do you think that the Mayor and the rest of the council are doing a good job?

I don't really like the Council. They just come out to the streets when they need your vote; after that they're gone. They go and sit on the council meetings thinking that they what they are doing when reality they are just the puppets of other people!

I have been living here in Delano for the past 5 years. I work, pray and shop here; the people of this community are great people. All I have seen here it's hard working men and women. But sadly the leadership of this town it's bad!!! We don't vote for a mayor, we just vote for council members and then among them they decide who's turn is it, like if they were playing musical chairs!

Yes, the council in Delano is really bad and needs improvement.
Our city is being run by a man (Joe Aguirre) who cheated on his wife. This proves that the man is a liar and if he betrayed his wife then just think what he doing to the city. What a shame!

I agree with all of you!!! It seems that the council only works for the people that they know! If you notice three of them are related to Delano's educational system (School District or High School District) Two of them belong to the Delano Business Chamber....... I think its very clear that the council doesn't work for the residents..... they work for their own interest!!!!!!!

I agree city council is corrupt. Scratch my back favor system. They all seem to have their own agendas. Giving people jobs for the city without proper hiring practices. It's all who you know. Yes I hate the fact that we don't vote for a mayor but the take turns picking the mayor. Crazy only in Delano

Reality its that we the people have to let the council know that they can't do whatever they want. They don't even show respect for the residents, especially Grace Vallejo, she its a woman that doesn't even have respect for her own family!

Agree with all of you!!!! how do I wish the council will actually come clear with all the finances of the city. I agree that Delano needs to grow and needs to bring new businesses but when you rise their water rates what money do you leave to the residents to spend??? then will happen what happened in Delano in the 80's all the businesses will go away because residents had no money to spend..... Bowling Alley, The boats in the lake, many stores that used to be in main street that now are $.99 stores!!!! The leadership should be thinking in a grow system that's fair to everyone!!!

Ya they wanna raise our water rates and build another gym on the west side with borrowed money that the citizens will have to pay back later on. So other taxes and rates will continue to go up. Bad money management all around
go to the meetings

I suggest you attend the city council meetings since you're that concerned and have the wrong info, It's not borrowed money. Its grant money from the feds, they didn't have to spend one dime from rhe general fund.

Well I suggest that you do it, if you go to the Delano City webpage and check on under their minutes and agendas section if you click on March 25, 2013 agenda you can read that this were loans, and from that page I will like to quote City Council Vallego "Councilwoman Vallejo stated there were many problems with the old pool,there were no grantfunds
available for repairs, and a new pool would cost $1.5 million. The city did receive a grant for the
construction of the spray park. The property in Chinatown was purchased by the Redevelopment
Agency. Governor Brown has eliminated the RDA’s and wants the property sold. The City has a $3
million loan for the new center and will use CDBG funds to make the payments. The new center
will have areas for many uses."

IT IS A LOAN AND NEEDS TO BE PAY BACK!!!! IT'S ALL PUBLIC RECORDS GO TO THEIR WEBPAGE AND HERE'S A LINK TO THIS MINUTES!!!

Thanks for setting the record straight. I bet they got that grant before they decided to take out the pool too. But yay now there is two spray parks on the west side. I guess they will all have to go to lake Woolomes to learn how to swim

Delano can be saved. Change the city council. These guys are not for change. They do what's best for their pockets and their people. It's like living in a concrete box. That town caters to the lazy people!
