A Hews Media Group-Community News investigation has found that Silvestre Vasquez, who recently pulled papers at the Norwalk Registrar Recorder’s office to run for ABCUSD School Board Trustee Area 7 in Hawaiian Gardens, registered only four days ago, on Aug. 3, 2015, to vote in Hawaiian Gardens.
A candidate who runs for ABCUSD School Board District Area 7 must be registered to vote in Hawaiian Gardens.
Vasquez listed his primary residence at 12134 114th St. in Hawaiian Gardens and owns a business called S and J Auto Center on Carson in the city.
But an online title search shows Vasquez living in a 4 bedroom, 2 bath single-family dwelling on San Arturo Circle in Buena Park, with a FHA loan attached to the house in his name.
According to FHA rules, any home that has a FHA loan attached to it must be the homeowner’s primary residence, dictating that Vasquez’ home on 114th St. in Hawaiian Gardens is not his primary residence.
That would make Vasquez ineligible to run for ABCUSD School Board District Area 7.
In addition, S and J Auto Center Incorporated is an active California Corporation registered under Vasquez. The address for service for the corporation is the same address as his Buena Park home on San Arturo Circle.
Vasquez could be in legal hot water also, as the nomination papers are signed, under penalty of perjury, saying he lives in the district.
