I've grown up in Carson and attend Carson High right now. Even as a young person, the impact of corruption with the city has always been evident, but no one seems to make an uproar about it. It is simply a passing story in the Daily Breeze. What is it that we cannot keep an eye on our elected officials? Carson residents can see a consistent pattern of corruption and illegal activity, but we keep allowing such figures into our council repeatedly. Just look at all the random plots of land on various corners that have a sign mapping out plans for a project in that area. These signs have been collecting dust for years while trash and uselessness collects. But how can a council work to change a city positively when they are so emerged in their own selfish agenda? I want to see a change for Carson, all of us do.

No matter what Dog says, is this the same Sweeney tactics all over. First Elito, with ties to Fajardo and election cheating, then Gipson supported by the same people who gave us Sweeney and Rhonda Frank. Give me a break. Our city needs saving and now. Through the crooks out now. Lula says she met Leal and ended the conversation, yet at the council meeting she is the one that argued for a new attorney the most and tried to dis credit the mayor. By the way dog, what does someone in Murrieta know about Carson politics. We've had councilmembers go to prison since our city was incorporated 4o years ago. We need our councilwoman, Julie back Please.
You were sounding smart until you mentioned or suggested that Julie Ruiz-Raber should regain her council seat!

We truly need a new beginning and should vote all the sitting members out of office; and maybe that will allow us to escape the fiscal quagmire we are currently in today!

If there is a Question of Councilman Mike Gipson's story of "Gipson met with Leal and Fierro at the Sizzler restaurant in Carson in mid-November" Why not just check the security tapes from Sizzler? They looked chummy to me.
Before Gibson was Elected to the council,-HE paid for a PIZZA party for the Union at the Civic Center to gain support.
Wait and see, This will ALL be covered up by July and the three banditos will find an escape goat to point a crooked finger at.

The security tapes should be viewed so as to corroborate or disprove the allegations in question. If he is innocent, Councilman Mike Gibson should demand that this be done!

Gene Maddaus is ALWAYS biased because he SUPPORTS Gipson, Santarina and Davis-Holmes. This time he went after them, and more importantly after this apparent criminal lobbyist.
This sort of appointment would have gone on unnoticed by the average Carson voter without this article. We would have a new City Attorney and have no idea why this firm was selected. Its obvious this guy Leal has screwed up in many cities: Commerce, Lynwood, Maywood...
Thank you, Gene Maddaus. This information, at the very least, will keep our government "honest" and "transparent."
And the calls of racism by earlier commenters is completely uncalled for. This reporter has consistently backed this majority, and now when he goes against them he is racist??? I dont think this has anything to do with race, and everything to do with dirty politics.
Excellent points! Seems like Gene Maddaus is doing the right thing and tha usually angers the people who get caught!
