I remember this city when it wasn't a "hispanic" city. It was a nice place to live. The people were nice, streets were clean, everything ran the way it was supposed to. Now it's dirty, falling apart, nothing works right. I would probably be shot if I drove through those neighborhoods. If the people of the community want to turn things around they have to get rid of this woman that thinks she's in Mexico! Vote QUALIFIED people into office AND consider yourself AMERICAN'S....Not Mexican's living in America.

I also remember Huntington Park when it asn't all hispanic. Downtown was a nice place to shop, wel kept homes, the Mayor and city council took preide in the city. Now Pacfic Blvd.looks ike Revolution Blvd. in Mexico. Ther was never a time when the American Flag was thrown doen and the mexican flag was waved high, and kids skipped school to celebrate soccer and Mexico, yet these children were born here, or at least the majority was. There used to be a Chrismas Parade, now nothng Huntington Park was cared for, but now the council has to say the "Americans" cause all the problems. This councilwoman was addressed in English from an older hispanic, and she(Perez) took the liberty to talk only in Spanish to put dowm "Americans," She probably would have said Gringos, or whites or really she meany "Gabacho"
Perez has no busineass on the city council, she is predjudice and demeaning to Anglos, she was born in Mexico, and should go back to Mexico. This woman is a disgrace to Huntington Park, shame on her!

Now you know why Cal Worthington closed his Dodge Dealership in Huntington Park. I remember the Huntington Park Christmas Parades where the Huntington Park Youth Band would appear. No more since it has become a third world city.

And it's a shame cities have to fall to this level of third world. I know a lot of people who were born in mexico but came to this country for a better life and would never set foot in Huntington Park because it looks like the place they left. Remember not all people of Mexican decent like all this crap and Perez should be ashamed of herself.
