For the past 10 0r 12 years Stella Breceda has not declared her business, assets or business income on her rectification application.

hat is Fraud and misrepresentation Not only a felony but a federal offense.

During the council vote to investigate the issue. Breceda warned the Council members not to start fires at the senior center and then he voted NO. I had to remind the dummy that he could not vote because he had a conflict of interest. So he sustained. Then Garcia thought about it for a moment, and sustained also. No surprise there. Breceda is known in Irwindale as me me me, and Garcia is known as me to. Garcia cant think for himself He votes exactly as Breceda does on every issue. That is why he will follow Breceda to jail.

The other Council members voted yes to investigate.

It will be interesting to see if any one of them allows this Fraud misrepresentation and misuse of public money to continue.

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.

Speaking of housing, I just saw Jim Hunley's house on "Hoarding; buried alive". I knew it was his when the host said they will have to demolish the house because of the mold that's growing.

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."

Like Hunley was. He spent time in prison. He also did so much more. But let's hear it from him. Come on Hunley. Answer the questions of how those cases turn out for you? You know the ones, law suits where the Judge reprimanded you for lying, the criminal case that sent you to prison, the law suits that you lost regarding your neighbor. The one where you jumped the wall and looked into your neighbors windows. And if course, the one where you were issued a restraining order, ordering you to keep away from a poor little girl. What is it? 50 or 100 feet that you can't get near her.

what about Mark Breceda. Read this

Mark Breceda, X city manager Steve Blancarte X finance director Abe De Dios Council member Rosemary Ramirez and Manual Garcia. went to New York 5 times and partied on the tax payers money. They foolishly and selfishly spent over 200,000 dollars on themselves.

Then along comes James Hunley and he discovered that they were embezzling city money and reported it the the D A. Charges were filed and they were arrested. and are now awaiting trial. Breceda's family that post under Go Army, Hunley Sucks and National Anthem have their panties in a bunch. As every one can see they are defending crooks. And that says a lot about their character.

This is why I call Councilman Breceda a criminal
Four current, former Irwindale officials accused of misspending city money on lavish New York trips
Prosecutors say the four, including Councilman Mark Breceda, dined at costly restaurants and attended Broadway shows. The tab for five trips came to $205,678.
October 28, 2010|By Jessica Garrison and Richard Winton, Los Angeles Times

Four current and former Irwindale officials, including a councilman, have been charged with spending thousands of dollars in city money on lavish business trips to New York that included outings to five-star restaurants and Broadway shows, baseball games and rounds of golf.

The four are accused of traveling to New York for up to six days at a time, allegedly to get a higher bond rating for the city, then improperly treating themselves to entertainment such as Yankee and Mets games and shows including "Phantom of the Opera" and "Mamma Mia!."

What about you. Before you can tell u about someone else, tell us why we should believe you. Tell us why you are considered non credible. Judges, newspaper reporters and the general public all agree. HUNLEY IS NOT CREDIBlE. Tell us Hunley, how did those cases turn out for you? You know the ones, law suits where the Judge reprimanded you for lying, the criminal case that sent you to prison, the law suits that you lost regarding your neighbor. The one where you jumped the wall and looked into your neighbors windows. And if course, the one where you were issued a restraining order, ordering you to keep away from a poor little girl. What is it? 50 or 100 feet that you can't get near her.
