Well, I guess all the lies and evil tricks about Kathy Trimble worked. Kind of sad this couldn't be a fair competition. But I guess it just shines the light on characters. All I have to say is what goes around comes around.

I voted yesterday afternoon at Lee Ware Rec Center in Hawaiian Gardens. Trimble and Arroyo's election staff were electioneering steps away from the entrance of the polling place; saying to passers-by to vote for #17 and #21. Once inside, at the booth, I overheard another voter tell an elderly voter to vote for #17 and #21 in Spanish.(The polling people only understood English).
When I made the polling people aware of what had happened, I was informed that Trimble and Arroyo's election staff had been doing that all morning and could not get them to back away the requisite 100 feet of the polling place.
As I left the polling place the same people were still going up to others and telling them to vote for Trimble and Arroyo, when I confronted them for engaging in electioneering so close to the polling place (about 25 ft. from the door), I was heckled all the way to my car until I told them that I would report the illegal activity.
I can't believe the extent to which these candidates have gone to ensure election to the council. I hope that you will investigate this. As for me I have already reported this to the city clerk and the registrar's office.
