Huntington Park City Council Gouges Homeowners

Corruption breeds waste and fraud.

Waste and fraud cost cities more money.

The Huntington Park City Council continues to approve charging a .21% property tax on residents, even though Prop 13 wiped out city assessments on property taxes, as well as freezing those levies in place.

Even though Huntington Park, CA imposed a property tax in 1976, Prop 13 erased those levies.

And yet, the Huntington Park City council continues to rake in the taxpayers' money.

With nearly $100 million in revenue, based on these projections, why does the city still fall into deficit spending year after year. The city's diminished police force cannot possibly keep up with all the crime and corruption in the region, either.

There are a grand total of four police officers in the entire city. Reports indicate that the city council is firing staff left and right and then pocketing the money for themselves.

All of this is wrong, immoral, and just plain awful.

Ratepayers are getting hosed every month. Rodolfo Cruz of the 90255 Association claims that homeowners could be holding onto $1000 a year. That's money for a family's retirement, or investment purposes. Latent entrepreneurs could save their money and open up businesses, then hire more employees, too.

Cruz informed me that another family bought a home in the city, yet this family has a number of medical needs to pay for, too. The higher taxes and fees make it harder for a family to survive, let alone thrive, in Huntington Park.

Finding relatively inexpensive real estate in California is a challenge, already. Huntington Park, South Gate, and other communities throughout Southeastern Los Angeles county have become welcome areas for prospective homeowners and real estate investors.

To own a home is a big part of the American Dream. Why would the Huntington Park City Council erode or frustrate this goal for upwardly mobile Hispanic families? For all the talk about racism and discrimination, it would appear that the four rogues currently seated at city hall are targeting the very people whom they claim to care about.

The gouging of homeowners has only gotten worse in the last six months.

The state of California already faces an unprecedented drought. Water usage is declining because of intentional conservation from city planners and individual residents. Yet in cities like Huntington Park, the water rates are rising. The city has plenty of money, which they refuse to flow toward the better interests of the citizens in their community.

The city council has engaged in kickbacks, nepotism, and outright disregard for the law, and they want more law-abiding citizens, taxpayers, homeowners to cover the costs.

This immoral council must be stopped.

Please attend the next Huntington Park, CA City Council meeting: December 15th, 2015.

Call the city council members, and tell them:

1. Rescind the appointments of the two illegals to the city commissions.

2. Resign their posts.

3. Remind all city leaders and all elected officials throughout Southern California: cities are for citizens.
