Where Is The Integrity With Election Signs?

If your not aware it is Election Season & Rialto is knee deep this year. With two City Council seats open with no incumbents and some serious races for Mayor and City Clerk this is one of the most turbulent elections in quite a while. As a resident and a community advocate I have always had an issue with the way our city has been treated when candidates come calling for our vote. A majority of our leaders pay a private company to plaster thousands of signs all over our poor city and then fail to remove them after the election is over. These campaign signs become a canvas for graffiti, mobile trash due to our Santa Ana winds and another eye sore in our little town. Another issue that we have noticed is the failure of city leaders to make sure that our empty businesses don’t become a dumping grounds or public eye sores. Well today’s post brings both of these issues to the same place as Deborah Robertson thinks that plastering the old MC Donald’s building on Foothill with her campaign signs.

It’s bad enough that our Mayor thinks that it is OK to plaster her largest allowed signs on the sides of buildings that are vacant and currently being marketed for lease. What worse is that the area has very quickly become an area where trash is dumped, the building is broken into and vandalized and graffiti has found its way onto the walls. It shows a lot about how Mayor Robertson feels about the way our city looks and her dedication to making Rialto a place that businesses can thrive and survive. The Mayor and her two fellow councilmen Joe Baca Jr & Ed Scott seem to think that the city has zero control over the look of Rialto’s businesses and our main city streets that connect us to the rest of the Inland Empire.

Mayor Robertson is not the only culprit others like Assembly Woman Cheryl Brown have attached signs to every wooden surface that possibly exists in Rialto. What is worse is that her signs are attached to areas where the land is for sale or lease and is full of graffiti leaving this writer to wonder if she cares what her assembly district looks like? Others Like Rafael Trujillo and Pete Aguilar have been accused of removing other signs and placing their signs where they removed another sign.

So the real question is the one above do you think that Rialto should be the land of as many signs as one can possibly get on every surface to blanket Rialto?

Will Election Lies & Breaking The Rules Win In Rialto’s Council Race?

So in the twelfth hour of the 2014 race for Rialto City Council it appears Ed Scott has once again used people in his campaign. Ed Scott has a campaign flyer that has him pictured with Lt Kathy Thompson & Police Volunteer Terry Thompson without their permission and in uniform. Reports are that both officers are very upset and not Ed Scott Supporters. See the image below:

Ed Scott Lies 2

Reports are the Thompsons are doing something Ed Palmer and Deborah Robertson didn’t do when their images were used without permission they are filing a complaint with the FPPC (Fair Political Practices Commission) to have this use investigated. Ed Scott’s lies are building and it’s not even November 4th yet:

  • Told RPBA that he was in support of Measure “U” and then at the last candidate forum he said he was against it.
  • Used Mayor Pro Tem Ed Palmers photo on his facebook page without permission.
  • Used Mayor Robertson’s name as a supporter without her permission.
  • Used Lt Thompson & Terry Thompson’s images without approval.

Do you see a pattern here lies and using people so I guess the banner tag line should be:

“I will lie and use people to get what I want” instead of “Proven Leadership” the only thing he has proven is that he has poor leadership qualities.
