IT don't matter lets RECALL. Getting pretty good at this recall maybe some of us can teach a class at the high school. We have young adults coming up and they need to be educated in Orange Cove RECALL PROCEDURES.

Paul why do you have a poopi mouth today? Relax, if this is Ryan honey it's ok I understand why you are upset. You are right there are some people who do not deserve what Mr. Lopez will be giving out; but there are many that do deserve and do need that help. Our community needs a break from all this negativity. We the citizens make the decisions of who we want to represent us. The chose has been made. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Why thank u lisa and Xmas 2 u.. I'm not Ryan I'm Paul my real name.. I say whats on my mind and that's how I feel but some of these people abuse the system and u know very well who I'm talking about.. Let's just c how long it's gonna take 4 the rest of the people 2 figure it out another 10,20,30 years 2 c that victor is not 4 the people but himself.. If u dont know that is cuz u either just moved here or ur a very young person but some of the people that have lived here and grew up here know very well how victor and his family try 2 run oc.. I don't like them I hate them.

>>>You are right there are some people who do not deserve what Mr. Lopez will be giving out<<<

Mr. Lopez NEVER gave anything that wasn't first grabbed from the tax payer, a portion pocketed for himself & family & friends.

In order for Lopez to "give" something, he must take it from something or someone else. In the case of the City, Lopez will take from all of us - funds that are supposed to be used for Police, Fire & infrastructure.

Enjoy the street projects you are seeing today, that's from the outgoing council doing what they were supposed to do. You won't see another until we get rid of Lopez and his puppets.

When you see our Police Chief leave, know that it was due to Lopez. When the Police budget gets gutted and officers are fired, know that is is due to Lopez. When your water quality fails, and the state has to intervene AGAIN, know that it is because of Lopez. When gangs move back into Orange Cove, graffiti is all over the place, businesses are robbed on an almost weekly basis, know that this is because of Lopez.

When more kids are shot in gang related activity, know that Lopez is responsible for it. When City property turns up missing, know that Lopez is behind it. When the City treasury is used for meaningless travel, know that Lopez is pocketing most of the cash.

Yes, Christmas giveaways are great, but who really pays the cost?

Aww is wittle Johnny not feeling the Christmas spirit" anymore? John John John, you are simply upset because your 50,000 dollars a year from our City coffers (tax payers money) is no longer linning your pockets! So it may be a quite Christmas down at the Rankin mobel home this year!" How do you think them 13 local teachers that lost their Job at the hands of Glenda felt? How do feel about some of them employees losing their home and having to move in with other family members! All the the crap you threw rankin washed off the wall!" Now you want to begin what is normal to you criticize the council coming in before they are even there! Well guess what Orange Cove is not going to put up with this any longer, it's time to work together as a community and put a smile on people's faces not a frown!" We have had enough as Citizens of all the rumors and trash talk! What you are about to see is a council who is going to work for you!
