Passionate citizens – displaying signs – have been attending every Huntington Park City Council since August 4, 2015.  During public comments, citizens are demanding that the 2 illegals appointed to commission seats be removed from those positions.

PUBLIC COMMENTS HAVE ALWYS BEEN AT THE BEGINNING OF THE HUNTINGTON PARK CITY COUNCIL MEETING. 

But that changed at the Nov 3rd city council meeting…

COUNCILMAN’S MOTION MOVES PUBLIC COMMENTS TO THE END OF THE MEETING

Huntington Park City Councilman Jhonny Pineda – the councilman who appointed the 2 illegals to commission seats – introduced a motion that non-agenda public comments would only be allowed at end of the council meeting. The council voted in favor of the motion by 4 – 0, and then the council members headed to an adjacent room and shut the door for aCLOSED DOOR MEETING.

BACKFIRE?
Since Councilman Jhonny Pineda moved public comments to the end of the meeting, the citizens were forced to sit through the entire council meeting in order to speak – at previous city council meetings when public comments were at the beginning of the meeting, the group left after the comments segment.

Since they had to remain for the entire meeting, a group with RECALL the mayor and city council signs sat directly behind that podium so that viewers at home and on the Internet would be able to read the signs as the meeting was televised and posted on the Internet. Below is a screen shot as a staff member spoke at the podium.

POLICE MONITORED THE SIGN HOLDING CLOSELY AND FORCED LARGER SIGNS TO BE MOVED TO THE BACK OF THE COUNCIL CHAMBERS.

SCREEN SHOT from official city council video

Officers, below, consulted about the sign holding and then the officer on the left stationed near the sign holders and monitored them.  

Eventually, he made them move “larger signs” to the back of the room.

Below, one of several actions taken by the officer to move the signs he said were too large.




YES YES YES CAMPAIGN
KEEPING THE SPIRIT OF DR. NEWMAN ALIVE AT THE HUNTINGTON PARK CITY COUNCIL MEETING!

In the spirit of support for Dr. Robert Newman, when he was removed by police from the 10/3/15 Huntington Park City Council Meeting for saying, “Yes, Yes, Yes,” during public comments, signs stating  YES YES YES were displayed.

BACKGROUND: The local newspaper, Los Angeles Wave, reported the following information about We The People Rising when the NEW City Manager Cisneros was appointed on 10/20/15.

Cisneros also must deal with protests from a regional group called We the People Risingdemanding the removal of two advisory commission members who are not legal citizens —  Francisco Medina and Julian Zatarain.

The group, including residents and non-residents, have called for the removal of Medina and Zatarain and the recall of the council majority except Amezquita, who was the lone dissenter to the appointment last August.

They protested for the third straight council meeting Oct. 20. Arthur Schaper of Torrance challenged Cisnoros’ previous comment that the two have been formally installed after passing the required Live Scan background check, saying that requires a Social Security number, not distributed to non-citizens.
