Montebello Results

Molinari, Barajas, and Gomez are now on the City Council.

The hubbub (and lawn signs) say that Gomez did well in the hills, where he vowed to oppose development.

Barajas and Gomez were backed by unions, who did their campaign operations with phone calls and precinct walks.

Also, all three reportedly got monetary support from trash companies that are not Athens, who is trying to get a monopoly on hauling commercial trash.

This gives the anti-Athens contract vote a majority on the council. The upcoming recall of Urteaga could mean that an anti-Athens super-majority could form.

At the very least, it's safe to say that Athens won't get the monopoly on hauling business trash.

Also, hills development is probably stalled, because Molinari is supposed to be cooling to the idea.

Mtb. finances still are a mess. City's a mess. (But I hear the graffiti situation is better, and I hear the gang situation is better. So some things are improving.)

BTW - who did Athens hire to lobby and spread the Athens money around? Who runs the Athens money-laundering operation?

It takes 4 to 6 years for Mike Lewis' swine peddling to be effective, so I guess he hasn't been sliming Montebello long enough.
