  • Herman says:

    Too many politicians are practicing mechanical politics. Most politicians do not know the entire story to the resolutions they are passing. Wish more cities would start recalls. Many city clerks are independent contractors, so are really not representing the citizens they serve.

    City of Cerritos, councilperson Solansky must be recalled, rubber stamps mechanical resolutions in which he is brain dead on the knowledge, campaigned promises he has not kept: working for free, and working for no benefits. He is receiving compensation just like all the other Council persons. Another Republican liar, same as Bush Jr/Sr.
