Cruzito? Frank Banales? Benjamin Chevez? Anyone Else in the Eastside?


On District Elections: Let the Games Begin

The simple truth told over and over is uneasy and awkward to listen to, just like the song; wouldn't you agree John_Adams?

"This EBID has brought out other groups against it in a negative way"; how about the truth be told - The person who STARTED the opposition to the EBID, Jacquline Inda, organized and participated in the protest that "should have never taken place"!!!

The rhetoric is outstanding!

"It is clear that both sides should come together and mend broken relationships". Again, let the truth be told. Each and every request by the MCA to sit down with the leadership of the opposition was emphatically denied. The MCA wanted to sit down and discuss the misinformation and lies that were being spread so as to avoid all the damage and division that has been caused by the opponents and their political operatives.

"Feeling harassed by the MCA"? What about the brash verbal assault made by one of the undersigned of the above letter of the President of the MCA on Christmas Eve? What about the disrespectful showing of the opposition (specifically Jacqui) at the NAC meeting that got her kicked out? What about the direct participation of Cathy Murillo and Jacqui Inda in the awful protest against a family business? These are their solutions for the betterment of the community?! Seriously?

It is clear that the opposition had NO INTENT to "come together" but rather had full intent to damage relationships, cause division and shut down a successful community organization with the intent (but no plan) to "replace" them.

It's high time to expose these people for who they REALLY are.

"Market forces and Capitalism just don’t give us our share of the American pie." No, they don't. They give us our CHANCE to get a share. We have to earn that share. Where did you get the idea you were entitled to it?

I am appalled that the Indy saw fit to publish a PODER column after what they did to El Bajio, and now they're apparently targeting the Chamber. Gaby Hernandez is clearly visible as a leader in the protest at El Bajio in the surveillance footage from that day. Nice props, Indy, for trying to shore up the Titanic of PODER.

"The People's Voice"? PODER????? OMG. More like the "Voice of the People's Republik", comrades. Careful what you do or say, or PODER will demand your emails be made publik. Those facebook posts...scary.

Independent, what are you thinking???

Ken, Dr. Dan and 14 - Sharing same mindset with those that think the Holocaust never happened, and Bush bombed the WTC in 9/11. Tinfoil must be the new black!

On <em>News-Press</em> Provided Few Records in Murillo Internet Request

Cathy most certainly does not represent everyone. She was not elected by the majority of voters. She probably got 8000 votes out of 45,000 eligible. She is a lousy city councilwoman that bullies people she doesn't like. She believes government has overweening power, and she craves that power like a drug. She associates openly with pro gang forces. Her desperate need to be liked is pathetic. She posts selfies everywhere - the Council Kardashian indeed. And hey John Adams, like husband like wife on that pesky problem of ethics, eh?

On <em>News-Press</em> Takes on Murillo

Agreed, disinformation seems to reign around here. From the IRS website, 501 (c)4 is a classification of non-profit for civic leagues and social welfare organizations. A (c)4 exists to "further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community (such as by bringing about civic betterment and social improvements)."
Community parades, health fairs, trick or treats, pedestrian safety, and homeless outreach (per the Indy 12/24) certainly fit that bill.

Cathy, on the other hand, is a politician. Her "bestie" Jacqueline Inda, leader of PODER, suing the city for district elections hoping to become the Eastside City Council rep, is political. Grant House is a former city councilman, and must be running again this year, seeking to pull a Hart and reinstall himself on council. These are politicos.

Who is spreading all this information about the proposed business improvement district, a model used by businesses across the country? A model Latinos have started up in Salinas, Pacoima, and other cities to improve their lot as businesses? Who advocated for high-density zoning for the Eastside that allows out-of-area developers to come in and buy up property for development, as has been happening for years, and has nothing to do with the business community? Who is creating all this noise, while masking their actions that promote gentrification in the area?

The politicos.

On The Eastside Assessment Reaches Beyond Milpas

14noscams, the intent of a BID is to improve the business environment and promote existing businesses in the area to boost their sales. More business for them means more jobs, and many eastside businesses would like more business! A cleaner district with events for families to enjoy benefits everyone in the surrounding community. You're speaking of larger economic forces shaping current city decisions. A BID lets the merchants decide the services they want to provide themselves, and how the district businesses are promoted, giving them greater control over their business's destiny. Absent a BID, they are indeed at the mercy of market and city-driven forces that may well not be to their ultimate benefit.
