This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.
Mayor Sam Exclusive: Fernando Chacon's Montebello Residency (and Office) Issues, Part Two
As the Residency Controversy of Montebello City Council Candidate Fernando Chacon (via Monterey Park and formerly of Norwalk), documentation clearly contradicts the statements of the latest Chacon Political Family Sibling to seek Public Office in Southeast Los Angeles County.
** Blogger's Note: As the candidates for Montebello City Council shift their respective campaigns into GOTV mode, the Commerce Casino-financed, "Los Chacon (formerly Cerritos) News"-supported Fernando Chacon Campaign, has come under additional scrutiny for it questionable domicile qualifications. According to the Whittier Daily News, a local PAC has sent a Mailer to Montebello Voters, questioning the Domicile Qualifications of the Echo Park, Connected Non-Profit El Centro Del Pueblo Employee.A campaign flyer sent out by Protect Local Jobs PAC, which has supported Delgado and Hadjinian during this election, questioned the residency of Chacon. Chacon registered to vote in Montebello on April 12 of this year. The flyer said Chacon moved into the city just to run for office. Chacon previously was registered to vote in 2010 in Monterey Park and before that in Norwalk (from our previous post) where he unsuccessfully ran for City Council in 2003 and 2007.Chacon said he has a Montebello connection through his office at Reggie Rodriguez Park. “It’s not like I haven’t been doing anything in Montebello,” he said. But as we document below, Fernando Chacon has been spending some "not so quality time", in the City of Los Angeles, Cypress Park Community. When Fernando was not engaging in positive Lions Club activities (which noted his Monterey Park residency, he was attempting to quell a community protest of his employer's qualifications (and lack of openness and transparency in garnering contracts) at his CYPRESS PARK OFFICE location. Chacon can be heard on the video, stating his reasons to the protestors, for returning to work in Cypress Park ......., not Montebello as he states above----Scott Johnson
