Residents Tired Of Getting Hosed, Attend Last Council Meeting Before The Election, Where Water Rate Hikes Was On Agenda. Plus, Councilmen Bill Velto Addresses PAC Founders Linda Nani Trawnik & Montclair’s Ben Lopez, In Explosive 3-Minute Statement!

OMG! In the last council meeting before residents vote on Nov 3rd, it was no holds barred at the 10/26 council meeting. Plus, in what seemed like a desperate act to soften Debbie Stone’s horrendous voting record, the topic of whether to raise water rates for the third year in a row, towards the goal of a 57% rate hike in a 5-year period, was on the agenda. While we can always be sure that residents will come out swinging is a given but a sitting councilperson, was most unexpected and welcomed. And the topic he choose to devote his 3-minutes of council communication time to, was none other than the founders of the West End Leaders PAC, who is Montclair City Council Candidate Ben Lopez and the infamous Rancho Cucamonga resident, Linda Nani Trawnik. All I can say is they deserved every scathing word in my opinion and everyone should hear what was said about them on live TV!

Why Is Montclair City Council Candidate Ben Lopez, Mass-Mailing Political Hit Pieces About Upland Candidate Carlos Garcia, To Upland Registered Voters? We’ve Solved That Mystery & You’re Not Going To Believe The Answer!

Montclair resident Ben Lopez has been trying to get himself elected to the Montclair City Council since 2014, unsuccessfully. He tried again in 2018, unsuccessfully. Then, he tried to get himself appointed to fill the vacancy left when the beloved Montclair City Councilwoman Trisha Martinez, who had beaten him twice in 2014 & 2018, tragically died while in office in September of 2019. Thankfully, Ben was unsuccessful then too but markedly bitter. Ben’s hoping his luck will finally change some 6-years later after his first 2014 campaign, this November 3rd, 2020. I highly doubt that Ben will be successful, because I believe countless angry Upland residents are going to insert themselves into Ben’s Montclair race! The Upland Report has tried to reach Ben Lopez repeatedly for a comment for this story which involves him, but has been unsuccessful. We’ve emailed Ben Lopez twice and also left him a detailed voice mail message on Wednesday, October 14th, regarding why Lopez’s home address, his notary business address and his personal Montclair City Council Campaign Committee address, is on a political hit-piece attacking Carlos Garcia. The apparent benefactor of those hit-pieces is none other than Gino Filippi, who endorsed Lopez’s Montclair candidacies in 2018 and 2019. We’ve dug into the origin and responsible party for these hit-piece mailers like a deer tick and uncovered every juicy detail. It’s not pretty, but Upland cronyism never is.

Shock & Awe At Special Session Of City Council On 8/26! Velto, Zuniga & Elliott Interrogated Attorneys About Memorial Park Purchase Contract & No One Was There To Stop Them, As City Manager Was On Vacation & Stone Was Lost Without Her!

So this report is effectively Part 2, being a continuation of Tuesday’s Report from 8/25, about Judge Cohn’s decision regarding the ballot measure language for the sale of 4.63 acres or 12% of Memorial Park, to San Antonio Regional Hospital. Please refer to the 8/25 Report if you happened to have missed it, prior to starting with Part 2. Truth be told, I wasn’t even planning on writing a follow-up report about the specially called session of the city council on 8/26, as I thought the council would just accept the Judge’s changes to their ballot measure language and there’d be very little discussion. I’ve never been so wrong, as it turned out to be in the top 5 of the best council meetings of all time. In fact, everyone who watched it live cannot stop talking about it, as it was so unexpected and absolutely shocking. Why you ask? Well we’ll give you all of those deliciously juicy details, inside this edition of The Upland Report and trust me, you don’t want to miss this!!!
