whats going on

At the last concert in the park there was a new booth at the opposite side of the Save the Hills people that looked like it was a second CookHill.

They have all new expensive looking banners and lots of color copies of stuff from CookHill that seem to say that we have to build the condos in the hills or the city will go to hell.

Has Cookhill finally found some residents who are willing to shill for them and go against their own neighbors? Who paid for the booth and the brand new materials? Why did they leave long before the concert ended? Why did the younger one start dancing and chant 'Go Death Go' when she was talking to some big guy I think was one of the save the hills people? Why did they tell some people that they would save the hills, when they want to build the condos?

To be fair, the older lady told me about some problems that really need to be said and talked about in Montbello, but the younger one just seemed to talk about building in the hills to solve the city's problems. Is she or both of them working for the developer??

I finally went inside and listened to the music, and when I came out at the end to talk some more with Montebello Forwarders, they had slipped away into the night before the last set of songs, according to the funnel cake (yumyum) lady.

Anyway, Whats Going On?????????

I wonder why the Cook Hill guys from Orange County helped take down the awning and pack up the tables and supplies of the Montebello Forward booth. Did they take their sign up sheets? Is Montebello Forward a "Front Group" for Cook Hill?

What a turn around at the 8-22 concert!

Now, instead of Cookhills guys talking and handling their papers, the Montebello Forward ladies seem to have the plague as far as cookhill are concerned.

They didn't so much as glance in the ladies direction, and only some fumble finger young guy helped them take their booth down.

Whats more, there wasnt one piece of condo advertising on the Forward table this time. A tiff between employer and employees, maybe? Or do the mom and girl now see how unpopular the condos in the hills project is with the people????

Momma even told some who asked that she doesnt support the project!!!!! What a difference a week makes!!!!!!! Do they really stand for anything?????

Evidently the slick glossy flyers passed out last week are related to the new infotainment "Montebello Life".
Both reference a developers study which is alluded to but not referenced or maybe even available.

Idk, something weird is going on with this group.

If that older woman is now telling people she doesn't like their project, then why did Cook Hill send out an email on MONDAY telling all their supporters to visit the Montebello Forward webpage?

How come the women's names are on Cook Hill's webpage?

It's easy to tell people what you think they want to hear. The thing is, are they doing this to Cook Hill or to the regular people in Montebello?

I wonder if they're doing it to both. The question is, what is their motivation?

I think all of you people in this forum need to wake up. Have you ever heard of an opinion. Everyone is entitled to one. If someone is supporting the Hills Project, what is the problem?

So, everyone is entitled to an opinion unless that opinion happens to be against the hills project?

I wonder why one of the spokespersons for the alleged organization called Montebello Forward seemed to focus critically on our city's mayor during public orals at our last city council meeting. I wonder why this same person has flip flopped on the issue of the city's water company's long overdue rate increase. First she spoke in opposition to the rate raise. Two weeks later she supported it and criticized the mayor for voting against it. Well, a fancy name does not an organization make. I wonder if she's being given conflicting instructions from others.

A front organization is any entity set up by and controlled by another organization, such as: organized crime groups, banned organizations, religious or political groups, advocacy groups, corporations or real estate speculators and developers.

Front organizations can act for the parent group without the actions being attributed to the parent group.

Front organizations that appear to be independent voluntary associations or charitable organizations are called front groups.

In the business world, front organizations such as front companies or shell corporations are used to shield the parent company from legal liability.

I was at the council meeting and heard the comment she made. She was questioning Madam Mayors statements and inconsistencoes. She did not say that she supported the hikes. Please stop misleading people.

Can any of you inform this board why you are so against the Cook Hills project? Do you have a solution to making Montebello a more business friendly town? Are you volunteering around the the city? Have you attended any council meetings and voiced your concerns and/or offered facts?

You are referring to the comments made at the most recent council meeting. The position reversal occurred at a previous meeting. No misleading going on.
I go to meetings too

Wonder Why was referring to something that happened in a previous meeting, I know because I was at both of those meetings. Check the videotape.

You are the one trying to mislead people.

Your first question has already been answered here:

Since I suspect you are fishing for information that might reveal the identities of posters here at Topix.com , I strongly advise others to not answer the rest of your questions.

A better question is: As about 72 residents are against the proposed condo project for every resident who supports it, what links those who support it?
