Pineda the Planning Commissioner?

I had learned recently that Jhonny Pineda, one of the four corrupt city council members in Huntington Park, had served as a planning commissioner in the city before his election.

The City Clerk informed me of the following:

In regards to your Public Records Request received via email on January 7, 2016 regarding the below.
Because your inquiry does not request any document , the City has no responsibility to provide a responsive document. But what I did find out is that there was no appointment process at the time Mr. Pineda became a Planning Commissioner.  The process was that an applicant appeared before the Planning Commission, was interviewed and was voted by the Commission to either go before Council or not, and for Council to approve.  He was voted by the PC for Council approval, hence Council approved his seat on the PC.

Huntington Park had a different process for appointing people to commissions.

Those individuals would get a first vote and then a second vote up or down.

Now the process permits current city council members to appoint one person to each commission.

The Puppet Master Efren Martinez is the current Vice Chair. Well, well, well.
Notice also that they were recently appointed, and Councilman Valentin Amezquita did not appoint anyone.
Why? The city council did not permit him to.
Well. Well. Well. (or not so well. . .)
