How was Mr Frank J. Lizarraga, Jr. able to serve Ontario Planning Commission while he was a resident of Rancho Cucamonga? How many land transactions did he benefit from in Ontario? Oh... he's a lawyer I forgot. Duh!

It's good to see that Red Hill, Rancho Cucamonga resident Frank Lizarraga stepping down from the Ontario Planning Commission. In fact, two weeks ago I drove through Red Hill and saw him standing in his garage talking on the phone. His service to the Ontario City Council has been a fraud that has been perpetrated for too long. This Rancho Cucamonga city resident must be getting nervous with all the investigations going on around here. Lizarraga has made a lot of money off the city of Ontario. And not all of it legally.

Nice of councilpersons Bowman, Wapner and Dorst-Porada to sing the accolades of this guy. It has long been known that Lizarraga never even lived within the boundaries of Ontario! Yet they turned a blind eye to the fact that he wasn't even eligible to be on the Planning Commission. The Daily Bulletin knew this fact too and never investigated or reported it.Gee, what a great way to run a city and a newspaper...

Maybe Lizarraga can show the new planning commissioner Reyes how to acquire city property and then sell it and make a profit. Mr. Lizarraga is a pro at that.

The guy is a crook and an embarrassment to the legal community. I am disgusted that the city council gave Mr. Lizarraga such high praise. His practice has been "keeping him busy" all right - it’s because he's being sued by a corporation for fraud, by former business partners and has a laundry list of building foreclosures and other defaults.
And oh yes, just like the LA City Councilman Alarcon, he too has address of "convenience". Another individual (who I now see nominated him twice for planning commissioner) was renting Mr. Lizarraga’s home in Ontario while he lived comfortably in an Rancho Cucamonga - at least until 2007 when I departed that loser state. Last time I checked, the Planning Commissioner had to LIVE in the city he /she was planning.
Those who gave him such praise should be more careful of who they “endorse” as making noble contributions. Hitching their wagon to this guy doesn’t do them any favors and should result in the taxpayers questioning their character and ethics as well.\
Interesting the the article has been pulled from the website - gee...I wonder how that happened? Maybe the city has some pull with the newspaper?

The story has now "magically" disappeared from the archive. Amazing how that works...unbelievable.
