There is no question Molinari is the best politician in Montebello in the sense of what is rotten about politics. And because the Whittier Daily News is useless at reporting on events in Montebello and incapable of digging just a little deeper with their stories, the people of Montebello are not exposed to or informed of Molinari's lies and destructive nature. He does nothing positive for the city. He is a force for everything bad in Montebello. I would gladly sign a recall of Molinari petition. How do you see the faults in Rosie Vasquez, Loner, and remain blind to Molinari's lies, cheating and destructive personality?

Maybe since we are not paying those two positions, we will not be forced to lay off any police. That is over $300,000.00 a year.

Good point Blinkie
However changing administrators in the middle of budget negotiations would mean a complete start over and a tanking of the "fragile" 2010-2011 "tenative based on wishfull thinking that the State will send us some more money" budget.
Compared to the 20 or so odd million hole the City is in $300,000 is chump change

Blinkie - the city has not laid off any police officers. They got rid of some because when narramore took over he did not want them so it was retire or be fired. Also they are working so much over time that they are tired of working. Fire has taken the brunt of all the cuts. 48% less manpower and station closures.

What a pity that the City of Montebello is now having headlines about issues which could have been handled in a professional way if there were established communication guidelines and a commitment by the so called public servants and the representatives of the people chose to follow them. Instead there seems to be a lot of misinformation and lack of a reality check. Think about how many jobs Mr. Narramore had been handling as interim City Administrator and all the budget problems which are facing the city which also cause stress....

It is a very bad idea to let a key person go and have to find another one when there is so much going on.... I hope reasonable people will prevail..

It would also be so good if the public servants including police, firefighters and City Council members and staff could be looking at how to improve the quality of life in Montebello with other than just more shopping venues.

Some ways include:increasing open and park space by revising the general plan to re-zone the Hill and provide for pocket parks on now vacant land; stop using a tree service that constantly mutilates trees at great expense and instead hire one which saves money by actually maintaining the poor trees in as natural a way as possible and works with the city to educate the public about the benefits doing so; and instead of ripping off public funds by overtime and retirement payments, buying expensive equipment and filing lawsuits etc. with out doing the work to protect the city, it would be more practical to have them get down to working out a realistic work schedule which utilizes all the officers and firefighters in an effective way that saves and budgets money at this time of economic crisis caused by the rampant spending of taxes on needless wars and weapons in the name of defense...which is .just a scare tactic.....

It is also too bad if anyone puts trust in the so called newspaper publisher who only puts out an edition as campaign literature for the candidates who are paying him at that time... the people of Montebello deserve much better media coverage also.

Montebello needs to be a contract city within the LA County Sheriff's Department! The Montebello Police Department has gotten away with enough misconduct and abuse. They need more accountability from within. They need to be investigated by an outside agency! It's a proven fact that they cannot be left alone to make their own decisions. They need to hire all new staff. The list goes on and on.
I am unhappy with the way my son and husband's MURDER case was handled from the start and all along the way up until the end of trial.

Although that is a great idea, unfortunately it comes down to money. First of all, the hill is private property and I dont think PXP will sell only the vacant spots. Also, where do we get the funds to buy the land, develop it and maintain it? Its very expensive. Its a good idea, but unrealistic.

HOLD ON A MINUTE:

Mtb Ecology Lover's post is #27.

south montebello resident's post is #29.

south montebello resident posted a "quote" from Mtb Ecology Lover but Mtb Ecology Lover DID NOT write the following lines:

"Although that is a great idea, unfortunately it comes down to money. First of all, the hill is private property and I dont think PXP will sell only the vacant spots. Also, where do we get the funds to buy the land, develop it and maintain it? Its very expensive. Its a good idea, but unrealistic."

There is also no "Amen to that brother," at the end of Mtb Ecology Lover's post.

So where did south montebello resident get those added lines?

By the way, purchasing the PXP land is not "unrealistic" if PXP would be willing to negotiate. It may not be feasible in the near future, but it could be done.

I didn't forge anything dpsht, I simply forgot to space my response from the statement. Is that OK with you?
As for Pacheco's contract, as I have stated earlier, his contract with the city was good enough for him to be hired while Bill was in the minority, but not good enough for the city once Bill was in the majority. According to TR Bill had nothing to do with it. Do you agree with that BS also? And since TR wont actually tell us what the contract says, I guess we will never know. All I know is I contacted Lillian at city hall and she indicated that Narramore's and Pacheco's were standard contracts by her estimates. Now, who am I going to believe? I lying Alcoholic like TR, and a borderline retard like you, or Lillian. Hmmmm, I'll take Lillian.

That's all you got? Just two totally baseless examples? You really are sad...
