"Vera Padilla's 2008 Lincoln High School Memo"
"Vera Padilla falsely identify as Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council Member"
In the flyer pictured above regarding the Business Improvement District Meeting on Tuesday, one can see that Vera Padilla is listed as an member of the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council.
The irony here is that Padilla is running for a position in Thursday's election as an "Community Base Organization Rep", in which three people are elected but only two, including Padilla, are running. Thus, Padilla needs only one vote to get elected.
But Padilla's actions may cause an ethics investigation on why she would allow a community flyer to go public, with the false information. But then this would not be the first time that Padilla was found to be ethically-challenged in regards to Lincoln Heights community affairs.
This episode comes on top of some questionable actions by LHNC members yesterday at the Second Annual Ramona Gardens Fashion Show. Assemblyman Kevin De Leon was on hand to give certificates of appreciations to the groups and community members who helped in the successful event.
One of the certificates was given to the LHNC for their donation of $2,000 for this event. Accepting the award on the behalf of the LHNC was Esther Rojas, who is running against current Vice-President Erika Gallo for President in Thursday's election. Rojas along with LHNC Treasurer Frank Wada and Nancy Rojas, proceeded to politicize the event by passing out their slate flyers for the "Action Team". It should be noted here that the whole LHNC voted to approve this donation and should be commended for their support. Thus, none of the slates in this election had no business in pushing their political agendas at Saturday's event.
Also should note here, that opposite points of view can be posted here at Mayor Sam in the comment section.
