mr delong, you really showed what type of a representitive you are at the meeting on the 5th. i wish all those who voted for you could have been there watching you flipping all of us concerned citizens off and your laughing and joking around with little miss suju.
you don't represent anyone but yourself. it's time you let someone who actually cares do the job your not man enough to do.

I don't know enough about this man but I have got to say, he has something HOT he is trying to PROVE and is doing a lousy job to prove it. He has a hot button and the only thing I hear, is about how he double talks and makes a fool out of himself. Does this man need to be on medication?

Delong wants to 'tame' Belmont Shore.
A tame Belmont Shore will fail.

Kind of like Bellflower.In the 60's and early 70's
Bellflower Blvd was alive with hundreds of people from all over So Cal out and about every weekend having fun . Yeah a few street races, noise, cruising but ALIVE. A few fuddy duddies living near by started a movement to TAME the blvd, and they did. The vibrance died, the people went elsewhere.
Well after that the blvd never recovered and today it is vacant.
2nd Street could go the same way, even faster when the tweets get out that the Shore is dead.
People are not drawn to 2nd only for the retail,as exampled by 'The Pike'downtown. Most of the quaint mom and pop stores on 2nd are gone and being replaced by the same stores found in any mall). Bixby Knolls is very aware of that,thats why they are trying hard to make it fun to draw folks there while DeLong is trying to go the other way in the shore.
Be careful what you ask for.

Uh... people cruised bellflower to show off their rides, and meet up with the local girls, as there was nothing better to do around there. Since then, we've become the beneficiaries of "diversity," so everyone has different interests, communities are stratified, because people from different races/countries tend to have different value systems that often don't align well with each other.
That's just a fact related to human nature.
You can blame Delong for being a general doushbagg, but the shore will collapse of it's own accord, as the 50-something boomers, which is what belmont shore is mostly made of now, finally pass away, and competing "diverse" interests fragment it further into irrelevancy.

DeLong is a business man. Plain and simple. I can't believe a CSUDH graduate. not to rag on those students, is up for a seat on the House of Representatives. Something isn't right here and I think it has to do with his ability to network. He lets friends use his name as well to get favors done for him in the courts. If you're a business associate or friend of DeLong's, rest assured his name can help you get favorable outcomes in court and not based on the truth but lies. Judicial Officer Cheri Pham allowed someone to commit perjury in her courtroom because she supports or knew of DeLong considering Westminster's would be one of his districts if elected. The greatest shame of it all is we could use a modereate republican in Congress these days but his manipulation of the system is what people need to really know about.

I believe it Mike. The guy is only concerned about his best interests. What goes around comes around.

Maybe DeLong is being played by the people who support him. That's a possibility. This may not all be on him. For instance, Scott Lazarus, who uses his name probably without his knowledge to get favors from Judicial Oficers like Cheri Pham. I guess Scott feels he should get some mileage out of his $500 campaign contribution to gary. Gary may just be a victim of corrupt business owners. That's a possibility. I like that better.
