ISn't it funny to see James the 40 yr resident of LB posting from Redondo Beach? Or the James from Rose Park also posting from Redondo? Hey James + James (what's the plural of James -- Jamii?) here's some free advice, the PT's blog system automatically places the city you are posting from under your name...
Yet another ignorant person who does not understand computers or people posting from servers at work that are located some where other than Long Beach. Wake up there is a world outside of Long Beach. When I post from work my server shows Roseland, NJ. Gee now do you really think I comute?

I'm curious why no one has investigated Daniel Lowenthal's own indiscretions? We're just assuming that Suja was the one having the affair because the article suggested that she had a personal relationship with the head of a labor organization? Until there are pictures or phone records that prove she's had an affair, we should give her the benefit of the doubt.

Cartmenez...I actually live in Long Beach but my server is hosted in Sacramento. Let me know if you want me to explain what that means. I have a fourteen year old at home who can draw some pictures for you, maybe make a diagram, whatever works for you.

Of course.

Still, if it was NOT because of an affair, or physical or mental abuse, it is sad that people would give up on marriage so easily.

I have been appalled that anyone is questioning Suja's integrity. She understands how hard it is to be a public servant and she has always listened, not for public gain, but because she cares. She is one of the good ones and we should support her during his difficult time in her families life.

And I am happy that she voted to give the firefighters a raise. I would have had i been in her shoes. I am sure it has nothing to do with her "connections" to the firefighters union.

There is a reason why Dan was the person who filed for divorce and why he has requested sole custody of Avi.

If you wnat unbeholden and uncensored news and responses go to the district weekly's online site.

Apparently, Suja was available before, during and after the pending divorce.
Of course she has a thing for wealthy men who own monopolies on little yellow taxi cabs.
I wonder when it became socially acceptable to date divorced people.

Perhaps it coincided with the increase in numbers of divorced people.

I live in Rose Park and drive past the Lowenthal house after work on my way home. Never ever have I seen Suja at home. The husband Daniel is always playing catch or golf or tree climbing with their son in front of the house. I have always wondered where was Suja and why she wasn't playing and doing things with the family. It seems that politics was more important to her than her family.
Wow, that's a first - only Dad plays outside with the son. I guess my Mom was a real loser. She always let Dad throw the ball around with us three boys while she was taking care of everything else!

The Story do not include what the printed paper mention; which is her relation with the LB yellow cab president; and that she influenced decisions to keep LBYC the main company in long beach; and that she had an affair with him too.

Listen to the Tom Leykis show on 97.1 for a million excellent reasons to not date single moms.

I don't think working full time as a councilwoman, along with all her other duties, allows her quality time with her son, now that she's a single mother.
I think we should vote her out, so she can focus on improving her mothering skills.
The child deserves to know his mother.
So do you believe that all women should be fired from their jobs when they have a baby, or just if they get a divorce?? And as a logical person, I'm sure you also believe that any father who has custody of his kids (after divorce, or as a widower) should also be fired from his job??? Are you planning to personally support all these families, or do you think they should all go on welfare??

Can you guys wait before crucifying the poor woman for having relationships with the heads of important Long Beach organizations? So a Long Beach City Councilmember has met with the head of the firefighters and the Cab company...don't all elected officials meet with these unions, groups and organizations to hear them out on their needs? Are we that bored that we will automatically assume that infedility is directly related to her work?

Let's be honest, the only reason we are even discussing this is because Suja Lowenthal is an attractive woman. No one would speculate on an affair with Bonnie Lowenthal or Dee Andrews but America has had a love affair with attractive politicans and Suja is being unfairly punished. Keep fighting the good fight Suja! Long Beach is a better place with you in it!

For those of you that have took the time to write negative comments about Suja Lowenthal and her personal life; you're the kind of people that stand at a city council meeting every week trying to figure out what your going to do for the night. You all need to get a life!!! Take a look in the mirror and you will see the real the problem.
Well ..... I'll give you a quote from Suja.

"I guess it's just colleteral damage".

She said that 4 months ago when asked how she felt about the children and families of former offenders when she tried to ban them from living near the beach.

Likewise, please respect Press Telegram readers and enforce the rules universally for all comments...not just those made about a public official with a powerful political family. I've seen numerous inappropriate posts violating the rules daily that have no business in a mainstream newspaper. Just how many times does the "Report Abuse" tab have to be depressed before a vile comment is reviewed and deleted?
agreed!
