Love the article! It exposed the Truth and what these 3 Council members are doing to our Fair City. Herfert still claims the city safety would be compromised if a "Recaller earned a seat on Council" Who said they want it? Doesn't he have bigger issues to deal with? Do to the economy working people all over the country are dealing with salary issues and other work related cuts,the Police and Fire in West Covina are not's unfortunate but it is what it is. We need our Polce and Fire they do a great job protecting our City! What we don't need is Herfert using the Police and Fire as his Crutch! Because he will Fall!

After looking further into this whole thing I find that the cost of a recall is something that this city cannot afford. If the police are not taking any side on this then I believe that it is not about Safety at all. If it is about financial incompetance, and as far as I can tell this is something that has been going on for years,STOP ELECTING THE SAME DAMN PEOPLE INTO OFFICE!!!. Recalls are not to be used for disagreements about decisions made by politians. Those can be blocked pretty easily using the proper channels. I say wait for the next election and vote them out. Unless you can PROVE crimminal doings. The EVERGREEN deal sounds bogus and as far as I can see MANY cities have decided against getting into bed with Athens. However there is no proof of illegal activities and I think time and effort would be better used for the gathering of actual proof of things. I love trees but I do not think causing a 250,000$ special election shows much fiscal responibility.

Poor West Covina. I heard that Mark Smith was at the Council Meeting there. He is from Glendora and he screwing up their meetings too ??? More lies and trashing mouthing people. Done it for a long time in Glendora now he is in West Covina. He supports the RECALL in a city he doesn't live in or shop in. What an ass.
Why haven't they arrested him ??? Doesn't he have something out-standing. Hey 5150 WIC as he he is a threat to himself and others.
I heard that the Graffiti company that lost a bid to clean up the city brought red T-Shirts for people to wear at the council meeting. Most of them were little kids. Because they didn't get the contract, they want to recall the council. I have to make to one of these meeting. Smith will crap his pants when he sees me there.
