Irwindale officials investigate housing subsidy for councilman's mother

IRWINDALE - City officials are investigating senior housing policies following complaints at recent City Council meetings over a housing subsidy the city pays for a councilman's mother.

Several speakers at recent council meetings have complained that the city's Las Casitas senior housing complex is intended for low income seniors, and they claim Councilman Mark A. Breceda's 82-year-old mother should not qualify.

Breceda, one of two current and two former city officials awaiting trail on charges of embezzlement, vigorously denied the claims in a telephone interview Tuesday.

He said his mother is living off Social Security and receives no income from a business in which they are co-owners.

"She's 82 years old, and all she gets is her Social Security, that's it," said Breceda. "She has nothing."

According to documents produced by Northridge Group Inc., the Big Bear Lake firm oversees the certification of eligibility for residents to live at the senior home, Breceda's mother, Stella Breceda, pays $56 a month rent, one of the lowest rent rates for any of the complex's 26 units.

The city pays a subsidy of $444 a month to cover the balance of her rent, according to the documents.

In Las Casitas' annual recertification 2012 report, Stella Breceda reported 2011 annual income of $6,936.

Tax statements were not provided because the tenant's income level did not require filing taxes, according to a 2012 Irwindale

Housing Authority document.

Stella Breceda also is co-owner of an Irwindale business, RR&M Truck Parking, 200 E. Live Oak Ave.

The business occupies several acres of dirt, broken asphalt and gravel land used for storing big rigs and other vehicles.

It's on the west end of a long strip of automotive, muffler, and gravel businesses that line the Arrow Highway-Live Oak strip south of the Santa Fe Dam. The business is tucked between Peck Road Gravel Pit and a 1-800-TOILETS sign on United Site Services' storage area for portable toilets.

A representative at RR&M said Breceda instructed him not to give any information about the charge for parking at the facility or how many vehicles use it.

In the subsequent telephone interview, Breceda said his mother is listed as co-owner in title only and does not receive any income from the business.

"She has nothing to do with the business," he said.

According to a City of Irwindale business license certificate issued July 1, 2012, the business owners are Mark Breceda and Stella Breceda.

Mark Breceda, in his Feb. 1, 2012 statement of economic interests for the Fair Political Practices Commission reported annual income of $10,000 to $100,000 from RR&M.

He also listed two properties in Irwindale, each valued at between $100,001 and $1million.

At its Feb. 13 meeting, the City Council voted 3-0, with Breceda and Councilman Manuel Garcia abstaining, for staff to give the council a comprehensive report March 13 on the senior housing program and the process for certifying residents' eligibility to live at Las Casitas.

R R & M Truck Parking is 9 acres with 250 truck spaces. I was told the rent is 300 dollars a space. And it is full.

Breceda why doesn't your mother have anything and why should the tax payer be paying her rent.

Oh and who is paying the income tax on her half.

California politicians busted for spending taxpayer money on New York entertainment

As if New York doesn't have enough crooked politicians of its own ...

The bright lights of Broadway beckoned corrupt California officials to cross the continent and spend taxpayer money on nights at theaters, baseball games and pricey dinners at the Big Apple's finest bistros, authorities charged yesterday.

The four were from Irwindale, a bustling metropolis of just over 1,400 people where the main entertainment is watching cars at the local speedway.

The bureaucrats and politicians did have enough taste to pass on Los Angeles, just 20 miles away, for the allure of the world's greatest city.

SMALL-TOWN 'BIG' THINKERS: Irwindale, Calif., City Councilman Mark Breceda (left) and former Councilwoman Rosemary Ramirez appear in court yesterday to face charges they and two colleagues illegally lavished the charms of the Big Apple on themselves with taxpayer money.

They were busted yesterday for misappropriating public funds to finance the trips, which took place between 2001 and 2005.

They claimed they had to come to New York to pitch for a higher municipal-bond rating, and they did manage to squeeze in some time on Wall Street when they weren't hanging out in Times Square.

They lived high on the New York hog, staying in five-star hotels, guzzling $250 bottles of wine and spending evenings on Broadway watching "Mamma Mia" and "Phantom of the Opera," authorities said.

"Mostly they partied quite a bit," Los Angeles Deputy DA Nipa Cook said.

"They spent money on Mets and Yankee games and Broadway shows."

Councilman Mark Breceda, retired City Manager Steve Blancarte and retired finance director Abe De Dios are charged with five felony counts. Former Councilwoman Rosemary Ramirez faces one count.

Prosecutors said the officials used public money to pay for $250 Yankee tickets; $260 tickets to "Follies" on Broadway and $1,027 for brunch at The River Café.

On a trip in 2003, they had only eight hours of scheduled meetings, yet they spent six nights at the lavish Ritz-Carlton, checking in on a Saturday night, even though no business meetings were scheduled for Sunday.

They also saw a matinee of "Jackie Mason's Laughing Room Only" followed by dinner at Atelier on Central Park South.

Former Councilwoman Rosemary Gutierrez, who came along on one of the trips but was not charged with a crime, justified their actions by saying New York is an expensive place to do business.

"It's not like we were meeting in Irwindale or in the state of California," she told reporters. "It was New York."

Still cut and pasting the same old newspaper article. Lets cut and paste the newspaper article that says you are not credible. Or shall we look at your military record of you dishonorable discharge, or how about your criminal record of a felony that you were arrested and convicted of, or your business practices where you lost all of the lawsuits against you, or how about a defenseless little girl was granted a restraining order against you. What exactly did you do to that poor little girl?

You still refuse to answer my questions of your illegal and immoral actions. But you expect us to listen to your filibusters of newspaper articles. Provide us with FACTS Mr Hunley. Explain why there are so many judgements against you. Explain why you were dishonorably discharged from the military. Explain why you jumped the wall to look into your neighbors window. Exain why you have a restraining order issued to you to stay away from a little girl. You have zero credibility.

We have seen the lies posted about Hunley with no facts and we have seen the facts that support what Hunley says about the Breceda group.
The obvious conclusion is Breceda's are guilty as charged and the beauty shop owner in BP is nothing but a racists Mexican who hates white people or any nationality except Mexicans.
Lets show her mental skills she thinks the illegals pay their fair share of taxes when they purchase goods at a store. The fact is these illegals don't pay a dime of federal taxes or state tax and suck of the system just like she does with the Breceda's. If Richard Breceda didn't need a nurse he would dump that beauty shop owner who is only there for the money train.

How's this for starters: 602(L)(1) PC. Guilty and convicted. 5.04.010 El Segundo Muni Code. Guilty and Convicted. 27152 CVC Guilty and convicted 4000a CVC Gulity and convicted. I'm still researching a case Hunley has in Alhambra Court.

For more information, look up the civil case Hunley had with his neighbor. You will see in the transcript that the Judge reprimanded him for jumping the wall and calling to make false statements.

This sounds like a person who has a husband who use to be a police officer misusing the system. The charge for using police computers to look up a person past is a felony and very easy to track who did it right Mark Breceda buddy?
Now traffic tickets and civil cases are a joke but let's match Breceda charges of criminal intent to defraud city finances in other words stealing city money. Please give us something that is a criminal offense not trespassing and tickets dumbass.

First of all, I located the information on the Internet. It'a public information. You should try it. Second, as of today the only convicted criminal is Hunley. I'm not here to defend Breceda, I'm here to expose Hunley.
