Voters now are your change to improve our life in Monterey Park by voting for Anthony Wong, Bob Gin and Hans Liang. These candidates are the best for our hometown.

Vote NO on Measure BB, as it will not improve our quality of life in Monterey Park.  This is a feel good measure promoted by Councilmember Frank Venti as his last attempt to leave his mark upon our city. Measure BB will not change anything in the current Athens contract. The current Athens contract states that in 2017 when it expires the trash hauler/waste management contacts must go out to open bid.  Measure BB states the same thing that the future trash hauler/waste management contracts must go out to bid.

Measure BB has a price tag of $5,000 to $10,000 of your hard-earned tax dollars and will bind the hands of future Councilmembers deciding the future trash hauler/waste management contracts four our hometown.  Say NO to Measure BB and Frank Venti.

Please vote on Election Day, March 8. Your one vote does make a difference to our hometown and our future in the United States of America.

    The following is a recent post by Councilman Venti:

    Greetings Citizens of Monterey Park!

    I’ve spent 12 years serving the City of Monterey Park, as the next election approaches I hope to help put my experience at your disposal to help our city reach its potential.

    While many of your prepare to cast absentee ballots, I urge you to consider the following options:

    * Vote YES on Measure BB

    A YES vote creates a law requiring open bids from trash haulers for city contracts, ensuring that residents get the most for their money at a lot less cost.

    * Luis Estrada for City Council (www.estradampk.com)

    * Teresa Sebastian for City Council (http://teresa2011.com/)

    Thank you for your time and I appreciate your input.

  2. Great to see that the citizens of Monterey Park voted to pass Measure BB by a very wide margin. All of the Athens-sponsored rhetoric just could not stand up to common sense.

    Best of luck to Teresa Real Sebastian. She will bring the political and financial transparency & accountability to City Hall to ensure that ALL of the citizens of Monterey Park fairly represented.
