People like this are dead weight on our already over-taxed system. We cannot afford losers like this.

This is not appropriate. Madrigal is NOT serving the CITY of Santa Cruz. He can not be absent from so many critical meetings while we are shaping the well-being of the CITY. I would not have my job if I missed so many days. We deserve a council member that is focused on addressing the needs of the CITY.

This absenteeism is unacceptable. I agree with others who feel he should resign. Nothing racist about it.

Because he is an insult to hard working latino families that he should be a role model for. Now it just makes us look like slack people looking for special attention and that we are above the law. He needs to resign. Dios Mio.
Why do you feel that one person represents an entire community? Do you feel that way when a white person commits a crime? Probably not.

Stop worrying so much of what white people think of you and start improving your community. You don't like Madrigal? Run for the City Council yourself.

No we don't feel like one person represents an entire community, but apparently Tony Madrigal and Phil Tabera do..

Don't have him talk to our kids then. He aught to be ashamed of himself. Making like he's a role model. He's a fat, crooked politician who does not keep his word. While we are at it, he's made some promises to the latino community he has lied about. You must a friend of his. Tell him to resign already.

It is a disgrace that the Latino communities sit back and accept his conduct in all matters pertaining to being a city councilman.
Do the latino's really believe that we American citizens cannot wait to vote for legallizing illegal immigrants when one reads what Latino's are willing to accept as being acceptable and legal?

He is within his rights to choose personal freedom.
The cell phone and text law is no good anyway, so best that an elected official fights the cause.
Madrigal is the face of Santa Cruz, that is why he was elected. Don't get it? then you are the fool.
Go Tony! Go Tony! Go Tony!
Are you kidding Me? Time for an IQ test.
