NORWALK—Today, Maria T. Santillan-Beas, the first Latina to be elected to the Lynwood City Council by voters back in 2003, pulled papers at the County Registrar-Recorder’s Office to start campaigning for the Disctrict 4 seat in the upcoming 2016 Board of Directors Election for the Central Basin Municipal Water District.

The seat is currently held by Lectica Vasquez, who’s tenure has been marked by major controversy.

The Central Basin Municipal Water District is managed by a five-member Board of Directors. The terms of three of the current Board of Directors expire in December. Santillan-Beas is vying for the seat, which serves the cities of Lynwood, South Gate, Florence-Graham, Willowbrook and portions of Compton and Carson.

Santillan-Beas was first elected to the Lynwood City Council in a 2003 Special Election. She then campaigned and was the highest vote-getter in the official 2005 municipal election. Since then, Santillan-Beas was re-elected by voters in the following two elections. Santillan-Beas, the mother of two daughters and one son, is now serving her last four-year-term on the Lynwood City Council. Her term expires in November 2017.

“It has been an honor to serve the City of Lynwood these last 13 years, unfortunately, my time as a member of the City Council has come to an end,” said Santillan-Beas. “Fortunately, there are other ways in which I can continue serving my community and other communities nearby. After careful consideration, and a lot of community support, I have decided to run for the Central Basin Municipal Water District. My term limit on the Lynwood City Council is up, but it doesn’t mean that my commitment to my community has ended too. My constituents in Lynwood know that I love serving the community and if elected to the CBMWD’s Board of Directors for District 4, voters in the communities served by the Central Basin Municipal Water District will get to know me and my commitment to the people.”

Does Leticia Vasquez even live in Lynwood? She moved out of her brothers place on Walnut years ago and was living with her parents in Lakewood until finally moving in with her boyfriend Ron Wilson at 3622 Northland which is not in her District. Does the District Attorney know about this? I wouldn’t support her anyways but I think others should know about this.

The City Council of Lynwood recently received a certified letter from Leticia Vasquez on Central Basin letterhead placing the council on “notice” to stop circulating texts, emails and/or newspaper stories that depict her in a bad light. First question, would there be any other light that depicts this corrupt loser and abuser? We ran this crooked beast out of Lynwood for a being a despicable human being and nearly destroying our beloved City of Lynwood. We recalled her and booted her bloated corpse to the other side of city limits all the way to her senior citizen boyfriend Ron Wilson’s… Read more »

GREAT NEWS! After four years of our stomachs being sickened by the sight of Leticia “Really a Man” Vasquez, it’s about time someone with credibility like Maria Santillan has stepped up.

I’m all in for Maria. She’s someone who has proven herself in Lynwood while Leticia Vasquez was being recalled in that City back in 2007. Maria called Leticia out for being the scumbag she was then and will do it again.

Thanks Brian for being the advocate for common sense!
