The highest interest items were actions taken to remove Councilman Jim Miller from his position as a duly elected council member, an ordinance grandfathering existing game rooms, and accusations of Open Meetings Act violations, official oppression, and failure to carry out fiduciary responsibility. . . .

Wow, that's just sleezy. You insinuate that the mysterious "background check" is supposed to expose something nefarious, but you don't say what that is. Its the old show shadowy video of a drug deal and say "Does... More ›

It is illegal for me to use the results other than for my personal use, it is one of the conditions I signed when I purchased the results. Spend your own money to find out.

NGII, if the background info is so important, then share it. Worried of repercussions ?

Pena believes voters will conduct their own research into the candidates and make the right choice, I just happen to one of those who spent some money to run background checks on each of them and I am voting for the one who's... More ›

Is New Guy II Danny Tejada Jr? Probably just the same old Danny only with an aka. If there was even a smidgeon of dirt do you truly think that you and Pena would not use it to further his campaign? Please we are not that naïve!... More ›

New Guy II - Just checking on the usefulness of such vague comment. I will assume that since you recommend each voter conduct a background check on both candidates, that your background check included both candidates and was... More ›
