You need to be checked! First ill start with my Oc. Where do you get all the employees were family? Let me guess Glenda! When did Gilbert Garcia become related to Victor? When did Gloria bravo become related to Victor? And there is a few more that were left behind to work ONLY because they were part of the hill cabal! The persons that were let go all had more education than the persons that were let stay! And many of the employees let go had college degrees and yes the two family members of Victor that worked there have a college degree! And now about police supposedly going down twice that's a new one the hill cabal is making up! When the pd was disbanded it was due to mis managed funds by the hill cabal/Pinedo era when Victor and newly elected council found the city in a deeper hole then they could imagine! A auditor was hired to come in and give the newly elected council a clearer picture of what was needed to be done to keep the City Of Orange Cove from going bankrupt! This is exactly what is going on today with the hill cabal leaving our city broke! If it had not been for the fire insurance money that Victor and the previous had left behind Orange Cove would belong to Fresno county! And no PD would have never existed! Now this new council and manager are having to clean up the Hill cabal mess left behind once again!

The mess was done. Lopez lost cause of the park so the city paid thousands back. Explain about the police.

Correction; Lopez drove the City into a $400,000 deficit between 1979-1983. Pinedo came in and guess what? Victor had told people they did not have to pay their City Utility Bills. It created a huge financial hole for Pinedo to dig out of.

Pinedo not only dug the City out of that hole, to within a $30,000 deficit, but Pinedo also restored the Police Dept. after Lopez had fired the Police chief and was the de-facto Police chief, forcing the OC cops to call Victor to get his permission to arrest someone. Lopez took away the integrity of the PD thru meddling by way of the City manager, Bill Little.

Pinedo not only repaired the PD, corrected the drainage of funds, but he also did street repairs, repaving 4th and 5th streets from Adams to Park in 1982. There was enough money in the street repair funds to repave 6th and Center streets in 1983. Lopez took that money and mis-appropriated it, 6th street wes never, to this day, repaved as it should have been in 1983, and Center was repaved by the Hill Administration in 2009.

Lopez is a bungling, corrupt, liar and thief. He and his cadre of buffoons should be in prison for life just on the vote fraud alone.

Your fool of it, you actually believe in your own lies and expect everyone else to as well! 2009 was already scheduled and set to be repaived when Victor was in office! And I have the news paper clippings of the wrong doing that Pinedo did! So for you to sit there and write all this garbage and lies just proves how reckless you and the Hill cabal are! And as far as your bull about Voter fraud that lie is well played out, Victor and the others that ran for office with him committed no voter fraud! Your statements on this thread are fraud! Stop lying and get a life! Spend a little more with your foster kids rather than making false accusations!

Yes, they most certainly did commit voter fraud. Why do you think the SOS has NOT sent out the letter you claimed cleared them of voter fraud? Because they have NOT been cleared. It is my understanding that the SOS has been doing intensive interviews with people for months, and the investigation continues...

Yes, Center street was scheduled while Victor was in office, but not when he held majority control. Lopez had 32 years to repave Center, and he failed. Remember, he lost control in the 2008 election, the new council approved the repave of Center, in time for the opening of the PD.

As for Pinedo, while not a perfect mayor, he had integrity and did not mess with law enforcement, did not take kick backs or bargain for bribes to bring in low income housing projects, Pinedo did not commit vote fraud, did not sell City equipment as Victor did, splitting $200,000 with Elaine Brown (her own words).

Pinedo did not rob the Fire Department of Redevelopment funds, Pinedo did repair streets, did not play games with the Utility Billing - as Victor did - can you say bribing voters with a promise to let them get away without paying their Utilities in exchange for ballots? Pinedo did not import drugs from Mexico, did not raise 3 sons who became drug dealers, and were arrested and charged with attempted murder, Pinedo did not surround himself with felons like Alex Valdez, or drug dealers like Gary Villarreal... Pinedo did not sell his influence to the highest bidder, did not mistreat the public or City employees as Lopez has and continues to do.

So keep trying to build the Lopez image... Better rename the community center quickly, I think the SOS will be coming soon with the handcuffs...

I'm lost and confused.
You two are old men who lived or know Oc well I know one is lieing and one ain't. Look Victor you did bring grants but did mess with law enforcement twice or maybe ifs a lie but I'll say it's true I ain't blind we all see the police gone this year. Thanks I can know sell weed and break in and not be arrested. You did good and bad the jobs for family and friends but you let your bosses us residents down.

Let's check all bills especially that Utility Tax on your bills going back to the city.

Have you ever asked Victor and Diana if they committed voter fraud to get "elected?" Why haven't you written a letter to the editor Victor or Diana defending yourselves? You guys spent a pretty penny advertizing in the newspaper for your campaign but not one penny has been spent in defending yourselves against the voter fraud allegations..

Pinedo inherited Victor's Utility Bill mess. Pinedo fixed it by collected past due bills.

Lopez is soooo corrupt...

Still waiting for Oc to prosper but how is is possible when city is maintained at a welfare mentality in order to qualify for grant moneys which victor is good at. Not to mention receiving all glory. His following is ignorant to the fact that he wil keep you at that level. Welfare. He gets more free handouts if city remains poor.No need to be concerned for mid class u on your own. enough poor people to keep him in power.Some day someone without selfish motives will step up for the greater good.
